A Strays Novel
In Stray Moon—the follow-up to Stray Magic—Shiloh Harrison’s team of Paranormal Marshals is once again put between upholding the law and doing what is right
Para-Marshal Shiloh Harrison has always been a great number two for the East Coast unit. But after her boss is found dead (having betrayed the paranormals he was sworn to protect), she’s suddenly thrust into a leadership role she isn’t prepared for.
And it doesn’t help that she traded away memories of one of her most important team members to save another’s life during her last mission.
Too, she’s in charge of a unit that is mired in bureaucratic red tape, meaning she’s essentially under house arrest. But a West Coast Para-Marshal has astral-projected a warning: werewolves are going missing, and she needs Shiloh’s help.
Last time it was vampires. This time it’s werewolves. Half-djinn herself, she knows she can’t just sit around and do nothing while paranormals are getting snatched.
Her old boss may have broken his oath, but Shiloh will do anything to serve and protect.
Missing werewolves, twisted conspiracies, and blood magic push Para-Marshal Shiloh Harrison to the limit in Meding's riveting second Strays novel (after Stray Magic). Meding quickly reels readers back into the action with colorful dialogue, emotional drama, and wry humor. Shiloh has been suspended from her job and she's missing all memories of her teammate Jaxon. Nonetheless, her team agrees to allow her to help investigate the disappearance of a pair of werewolves. With the help of the goddess Danu and a powerful witch, the team discovers a magical curse used to trick the wolves into joining a clinical trial of fertility treatments in Kansas. Their investigation reveals these experiments on Paras are being protected from within the Marshal Service. Shiloh, her teammates, and their allies make a desperate attempt to save the werewolves, only to encounter a powerful magic user intent on binding Shiloh's djinn nature in eternal servitude. Meding ups the stakes with weighty magical dilemmas, deadly family secrets, and a shocking sacrifice. This gripping installment develops the setting and characters without skimping on action, and it's certain to keep urban fantasy fans hooked.
