Like Frank Victorsson, some things will not stay dead.
Two hundred years ago, Victor Frankenstein reanimated a stitched-together corpse. But the man once known as Frankenstein's Monster refused to embody his father's malice. He escaped his origin – and stumbled into a small Minnesota town overflowing with magic.
Enter the uniquely magical world of Northern Creatures with the first three stories:
Monster Born: Now, the Nordic elves of his new home call him family. The werewolves call him friend. When the town's vampires disappear and innocents die, Frank realizes the demon responsible might be the one force capable of pulling to the surface the horrors he'd learned to suppress.
Frank must stop a rampaging evil bent on murdering the people he loves the most. But can he save his town without losing himself?
Vampire Cursed: Frank Victorsson thought the demon vampire had disintegrated to ash. Then the horses vanished. Corpses appeared.
When an inexplicable fog blankets the town, it reveals an evil infestation deadlier than any monster his father created – and it wants more than Frank's soul.
It wants to consume the world.
A terror not seen for centuries lurks beneath the surface — one powerful enough to kill Frank once and for all….
Elf Raised: No town needs the violent problems caused by werewolves, vampires, and witches. They feed on good people. They're unrepentantly dark. And according to the other Elven Courts, Arne Odinsson has allowed too many, for too long, to live in his domain.
When the Elf Emperor calls an international conclave and threatens to strip Arne of his kingship, Alfheim's residents have no choice but to defend themselves.
With control of Alfheim riding on the quality of Arne's witnesses, he sends Frank Victorsson and alpha werewolf Remy Geroux to Las Vegas to track down a reformed succubus helped by the elves centuries ago. But when Frank unwittingly offers his services to a trickster god, he and Remy must navigate not only angry spirits and elven politics, but also a horde worse than vampires—cosplayers.
Because what would best disguise a court of elven law? The world's largest international cosplay gathering, of course.
Welcome to Las Vegas's own "Elfcon". May we all survive.
