Pact Arcanum: Book Two
Steel and Shadow
San Francisco, 2015. A group of friends celebrating a windfall in their musical careers take a wrong turn down a deserted alleyway, only to find their path blocked by two creatures out of nightmare. Surviving only through the arcane intervention of a cryptic savior, they find themselves thrust unwillingly into the center of a war of extermination between two mystical races.
Rory loved his best friend Takeshi for as long as he can remember, though he never had the courage to speak of it. The discovery of their supernatural destinies as the leaders of the Sentinel race only compounded the danger of a relationship, so he kept silent. When Rory is captured, his soul hangs in the balance as the Nightwalkers delve into ancient magic to corrupt his spirit. Takeshi attempts a desperate rescue, but is unprepared to face the enemy that waits in the depths of the vampire fortress. In the end, his own damnation may be the key to Rory's salvation.
Night and Day
Nick was surprised to see Rory at a Christmas party so many years after the other musician disappeared from public life. Renewing their friendship, he remains completely unaware that Rory is not at all what he appears to be. Nick's ignorance costs him dearly when Rory's enemies attack. To save Nick, Rory and his allies must find a way to triumph over the first and greatest of the vampire lords, before Nick's soul is twisted forever by the torments of the Prince of Nightmares.
