Bookstore owner and novice antiquarian, Sebastian Kaine is proud of his new profession and even prouder still of the collection of antique books on the occult that he keeps locked away in the basement of his bookstore. But his little utopia implodes when he wakes up in that same basement, bound and bloodied, and his prized collection all but destroyed. Making matters worse are the two strange men responsible for the carnage. They want The Seals of Abgal and insist Sebastian has it. Though he denies having any knowledge of the book, Sebastian soon finds himself at the receiving end of a violent interrogation–one, he fears, he may not survive. As he fights to stay alive, Sebastian will learn that The Seals of Abgal is no ordinary grimoire, and these men are no ordinary thugs.

I’m no hero.  In fact, up until a couple of days ago, I was the villain. Kidnapped  maidens, scared kids, stole magic tchotchkes—until I got into a little  scrape with the union. Now I’m cursed with the worst fate in New Never  City—no matter what I do, I gotta be nice.

So when a head-case princess  named Asia barges into my apartment and asks me to find out who whacked  her stepsister, Cinderella, I have no choice but to help her. And I’m  more than willing to head back to her parents’ castle and do some  investigating if it means I can get into her black leather cat suit.  Except this twisted sister has a family nutty enough to send the Biggest Baddest Wolf running for the hills—and a freaky little curse of her  own. . .

“More than f***ed-up. Demented. Hilarious.” —Mario Acevedo, author of Werewolf Smackdown

‘You got me back. You always said you would.’

Ash DeMorgan, graduate, orphan, ice maiden, has long since consigned the fairytale nightmares of a troubled childhood to the realm of fantastical childish imagination.

Now, lured back to Dublin, the scene of her tragic past, Ash encounters a city pulsing under the dangerous sexual influence of a new street drug the locals call Rave. Nothing is as it seems. Ash is about to discover that her nightmares are real, ancient Irish myths are larger than life and roaming the streets of the medieval city, and she has become the prey in their erotic hunt. A step back into her past is about to become a high adrenaline race for survival.

Connal Savage, outcast, assassin, and living, breathing hunk of ancient mythology, has lived a thousand years servicing a debt of revenge. Dead inside. Until he encounters his boss’s granddaughter, an infuriating woman who threatens to lead him to hell with all his good intentions, who manages to chip away at the hard encrusted defences of a lifetime spent at war and burrow herself deep into a part of him that hasn’t breathed for centuries. He is about to discover that when it comes down to the wire, when you’re bargaining with the Grim Reaper for the life of the one you love, you will do anything…

Thoroughly Modern Monsters by Jennifer Rainey
Type: Short Story Collection
Genre: Contemporary Fantasy
Price: $0.99
Where to Get It:
Amazon (Kindle)
 
 
A love-sick vampire working at a department store.
A confident siren kept from his home by the owner of a traveling carnival.

A famous crime-fighting werewolf reunited with his hostile brother.

The age of the monster under the bed is over! New law integrates all beings considered monsters by the United States government into human society, throwing them into the workforce. As these beings overcome workplace woes, unexpected romance and any personal demons that may have come along for the ride, they discover for better or worse what it means to be a thoroughly modern monster.

Thoroughly Modern Monsters is a collection of seven short stories complete at 21,800 words.

 
What they’re saying about it:
 
“This novella-length book of short stories is outstanding. I suppose Thoroughly Modern Monsters has to be categorized as urban fantasy. Its seven stories are set in an alternate U.S. in which everyone seems to know about “monsters” (gorgons, vampires, werewolves, and so forth) and the “Monster Relocation and Employment Act” has been passed to control their more dangerous tendencies and to make use of their special abilities.”–Amazon Reviewer
