In Red Right Hand, Charlie Tristan Moore was thrust into a nightmarish world of lurking Lovecraftian horrors when The Man In Black, a diabolical Elder God, chose her as his unwilling Acolyte. Discovering her own power, Charlie ultimately defied The Man In Black, but at a cost.

Now armed with a magic coat made from the skin of a flayed angel, Charlie is out to destroy The Man In Black and save her boyfriend Daniel–and she doesn’t care how many bloodthirsty gods and monsters get in her way…

~Excerpt~

My thumb swipes the phone screen and it flares to life so bright I have to blink. Scroll call list and hit the button and the phone is ringing on the other end.
“Hey.” The voice that answers is warm and a little raspy. I woke him up.
“Hey, Lionel,” I say.
“No change in John. He’s still the same.” I’ve trained Lionel to not waste time on small talk. By John he means John Doe and that’s Daniel, my . . . someone I care about a lot.
Shit, wait.
Someone I love a lot.
“I know. I’m just checking in.”
“Are you going to come see him anytime soon?”
“Soon as I can, Lionel.” It’s been almost a month. “Anyone by to visit?”
“Only us at the hospital.”
Something inside me unclenches. “Good.” If Daniel is still off the books then he’s still safe. And it lets me know the magick I used on the administration to make him that way is still holding.
“If we knew his name we could contact—” “Not going to happen, Lionel.”
“But—”
“Do we have to play this game again?”
“Can’t blame me for trying.”
“Don’t be so sure of that.”
Silence grows on the phone, but I don’t want to say anything or hang up.
From the seat beside me comes a rustling sound and I feel the soft brush of fabric against my arm.
Fine. Okay. Fine. I’m coming.
“I’ve got to go.”
“Okay,” Lionel says. “Call and be cryptic and vague anytime.”
“Take care of him.”
“I have been.” There’s an edge to his words. “It’s appreciated.”
“Hey, Jane?” Lionel doesn’t know my real name either. “Yeah?” I know what’s coming.
“Take care of yourself.”
I hang up.
Yeah, right, Lionel. Where’s the fun in that?
