" . . . a Gothic on speed!"

(Prequel Short Story)

This short story is a prequel to The Phoenix Chronicles and reveals how Liz came to be an ex-cop and started on the road to becoming the Leader of the Light.


Liz Phoenix does her best not to let anyone on the Milwaukee Police Force know that she's psychic.  But her partner, Max Murphy, suspects.  She's had one too many spot-on hunches.


When they're sent to the scene of a murder, Liz's latest psychic flash leads to disaster that changes both their lives.





Psychic ex-cop Elizabeth Phoenix finds herself thrust into saving the world, one demon at a time. Unaware of the supernatural battle that has been raging since the beginning, Liz becomes the untaught leader of the federation, a collection of seers and demon killers.  She's soon pointing out monsters of biblical proportion to her ex-boyfriend Jimmy, a half-vampire battling an army of Nephilim intent on bringing about doomsday.


Unable to control her new powers, Liz travels from Wisconsin to New Mexico where she meets with Sawyer, a powerful Navajo shape-shifter whose secrets frighten her and whose sexuality tempts her.


Caught between two worlds and two men, Liz must juggle it all in a spiral toward Armageddon.  She will need all her powers, and those of her friends and lovers, to battle an enemy that could be indestructible.
