Detective Paige Whiskey has a lot on her plate. A gate to hell is permanently seared into her soul and she has no way of controlling it. She let a psychotic serial killing demon free in exchange for Dexx's life. Her sister is about to have a baby and a whole world of crazy has opened in the Whiskey household. And, if that wasn't enough, she and Dexx are trying to figure out their relationship.
They're about to discover a world that has been hidden from the Whiskeys. A world of shapeshifters, werewolves, and vampires. A world that was hidden to end a bloody war. A war between shifters and witches.
Paige has to make a decision. Solve this murder and start a war? Or ignore it and keep her family safe?
But when Dexx is bitten, everything changes. War? Or love?
Detective Paige Whiskey comes from a long line of witches. They may not all be the most powerful, but they are outspoken and supportive of their community. She alone has no gifts. She can't summon fire, can't read minds. She knows the arcane. She's studied it. That, along with her connection to the Whiskey Witches, lands her some pretty strange cases.
Like the sacrificial murders of St. Francisville, Louisiana. There's a killer on the loose, choosing people in a vain attempt to raise a demon. Not just any demon, though. A man born long ago, made a demon in order to protect the Gate to Hell.
Together with demon hunter, Dexx Colt, her kitchen-witch grandmother, and her paranormal investigator brother-in-law, they unravel a conspiracy far bigger than a few simple murders, and re-discover Paige's gift.
She's a demon summoner and she's key to the killer's plan.
Never let a crisis go to waste. Carpe jugulum.
That’s the credo of ambitious New York businessman Nathan Serebus, a man content to consider himself more villain than hero. But that’s before a San Francisco business trip with his attorney Albin Conrad lands them both in the middle of a multiple-target terrorist attack. And before a plague unleashed upon the city transforms its people into monstrous, unthinking cannibals.
As the cannibals turn on civilian and terrorist alike, and San Francisco descends into apocalyptic violence, Nathan and his friends must fight with the brutality and ferocity of wolves in order to survive. Despite Nathan's tenacity, the terrorist mastermind Cheel takes him and his people hostage. But Nathan has always thrived on chaos. As he matches wits with Cheel—a man whose goals may be closer to Nathan’s than he’d like to believe—he finds himself left with a decision: fight his demons or embrace them? Must a villain become a hero to save lives, or is a villain exactly what the apocalypse needs?
His choice will have grave consequences—for him and for all civilization.
Behold Darkness is the first book of LC Champlin’s gritty Wolves of the Apocalypse series.
When the perfect plan goes perfectly wrong.
The only downside to Joshua Cooper’s investigation of a mob runner is not being able to discuss it with the two people closest to him, 19-year-old twins, Aster and Ivy Redd.

Desperate to exonerate the girl he loves, Joshua dives into Indianapolis's dark underbelly, and uncovers a string of crimes and lies that leads him straight to the Masterpiecers art show.
Straight to Ivy.
