A decade ago, teacher Nathan Brookes saw four students walk up a hill and vanish. Only one returned – Olivia – with no memory of where she’d been. After a body is found, it is first believed to be one of the children, but is soon identified as a Bronze Age warrior. Yet Nathan starts to have terrifying visions of his students. Then Olivia reappears, desperate to return the corpse to the earth. For he is the only thing keeping a terrible evil at bay...
Beneath the surface of our world, mythological creatures still exist—people pay fortunes for a sliver of dragon bone, an angel's wing. Angela Gough is a criminology student whose fiancé Vince disappears. Her investigation leads her into a black market of arcane relics. Mary Rock is a criminal who also wants to find Vince, to kill him. Angela and her team must stop this horrific trade, yet they face a growing menace as the creatures begin to fight back.
An anthology of horror stories in urban settings—whether back alleys, crumbling brownstones, gleaming high-rise towers, or city hall. Terrifying urban myths, malicious ghosts, cursed architecture, malignant city deities, personal demons (in business or relationships) twisted into something worse…virtually anything that inspires the contributors to imagine some bit of urban darkness.
