Small but fiery, Fia Drake is a natural when it comes to hunting the souls of the damned. Trained in a convent to wield a crossbow with frightening efficiency, her routine is clear-cut and effective: track target, neutralize, find live music and a sexy stranger, rinse and repeat.
Tedious? Maybe. But it's safe. It helps her keep a healthy distance from others. Whether it's blood on her hands or muddled emotions, if there's one thing Fia doesn't want, it's messiness.
But humans are messy-and demons are worse. When unknown enemies and allies start appearing on her jobs, Fia is forced to get up close and personal. In doing so, she makes two mistakes.
She takes her mind off her target, and it almost costs her life.
Her thoughts keep returning to a mysterious chivalrous drummer she sent packing after a night of fun. It dredges up her turbulent past, forcing her to face her inner demons.
Will her connections to the drummer and demons be her salvation-or a one-way ticket to hell?
BIOGRAPHY D. Gabrielle Jensen is an artist of many mediums but words have always been her strongest passion.
Born and reared in the rural mountains of Colorado, she has always felt drawn to bigger things, feeling far more at home in the chaos and commotion of a city than the serene quiet of a small town. Small towns, she laments, make her feel anxious and claustrophobic.
A traditional Bachelor's degree education in English and Creative Writing from Colorado State University-Pueblo led to more than a decade as a freelance web content creator, music reviewer, and author, for a variety of publications, including an eight year stint as owner and chief editor of a speculative fiction magazine and the self-publication of a collection of short stories and poetry (Out of print, in revision for second edition release).
When she is not writing - which is most of the time, even if she is not near her keyboard or holding a pencil - she is bringing art to the world through cosmetology, jewelry design, photography, and the occasional spare pencil sketch. Music drifts into every aspect of her life, even if not in the creation of, it is always playing, always inspiring.
She loves things that begin with the letter "C" - coffee, cats, conversation, cities, concerts, crowds, chaos - and things that don't - airports, traveling, other humans, macro photography, urban decay, macro photography of urban decay, the beauty of flaw.
