To Dream the Blackbane
2015 - a catastrophic event known as the Anomaly fuses the human world with the faerie realm.
A byproduct of the Anomaly was the advent of hybrid beings - people who became mixed with whatever animal or object was nearest them the moment the Anomaly occurred. Full humans, or Pedigrees, soon relegated fairy refugees and hybrids into ghetto zones in large cities.
Seventy years later, Wolfgang Rex, a second-generation hybrd - human/Rhodesian Ridgeback - is a retired police detective who runs a private investigation business in Chicago's Southside. It's a one-hybrid show: though Rex couldn't survive without his assistant, faerie Sally Sandweb.
One evening, two vampires visit Rex and offer him a substantial reward for the recovery of a stolen scroll. Later that evening, Charlotte Sweeney-Jarhadill, a Pedigree woman from Louisiana, visits Rex and hires him to exorcise the headless ghost of a confederate soldier from her home. To complicate matters, the private detective ends up falling for Charlotte.
If things couldn't get worse, the vampires demand results in the search for the missing scroll. When Rex's assistant Sally goes missing, he must stay alive long enough to find her.
Charlotte and the vampires, however, have other plans for Rex.
