Day fifteen! There are 43 chapters, but we are coming closer to my publishing date. After a final review, it looks like Blue Ruin will be published before the 29th of this month!
Today, we are going to look at Chapter Fifteen: The Dealer. After running into Adrian’s messanger, Maura gets an invitation to Adrian’s club, Viper. Maura realizes the danger in going and aims to prepare by purchasing an antidote from Henry, her dealer. An antidote will block the affects of a Vampire’s Allure, a spell that can seduce a victim into submission.
“I need antidote,” Maura said.
“Antidote?” Henry’s fingers tightened around the lip of his bag.
The antidote would only shave a layer off the amount of effort she’d have to use tomorrow. Everything else came down to her ability to keep herself sane and collected. She’d have to be all coy smiles if she wanted to keep her head. Literally. She would need to play Adrian’s little game.
“Going after someone big, eh?” Henry said.
“It’s the other way around.”
Blue Ruin is the first novel in The Phoenix Series. The Phoenix Series is a dark fantasy with gothic, noire, paranormal, and supernatural elements.

With black magical beings having been hunted for centuries, she’s come to learn a thing or two about survival. But Adrian Wilhelm, a notorious Vampire, threatens to destroy Maura’s newfound life as a detective in the magical world of Mystics. Adrian intends to use Maura as a means of resurrecting the fallen world of black magical beings, Abysm. Maura has made it her mission to stop Adrian while covering her tracks from those that have been seeking her out for centuries.”
