A new enemy of the Fae threatens two mere humans…
In contemporary Istanbul, a long, drawn-out civil war between Imperial Fae on the Asian side of the Bosphorus and an alliance of Fae occupying the ancient city has ground down the human occupants for ten long years.
Nikol—human, orphan and a Greek in a city of Turks—is touched by disturbingly magical abilities of her own. The humans in the city treat her with suspicion. Yet she is valuable to the human resistance and beloved by the resistance’s greatest spy among the Fae. Arda Sokol is terrified the Fae will learn of Nikol’s abilities, and his effort to protect her strains their relationship--until they must work together to defeat a new threat to the Fae, and he learns she is not weak at all…

Urban Fantasy Short Story
Praise for Taylen Carver’s urban fantasy:
Plenty of exciting twists and turns.
Feel the tingling of danger, the aha's of escaping death, and the excitement of magic
I loved this and will continue on with the series.
A very satisfying first book for a new series
blends the paranormal and the thriller/suspense you expect in a who done it crime story
Love the heroine
The story is filled with many interesting characters, and I'm sure throughout the series we will learn more about them and their new Sheriff and I can't wait to read all about them.
