Cop by day, college professor by night, Detective Fellowship Dancy loves warm whiskey, anonymous hookups and working the desperate streets of Pawville, Trianah Metropolitan’s Human District. What does she hate? Beer, needy men and the magical, wealth-amassing snobs who live in Seacrest, Trianah Metro’s Aechaih District.
Detective Hyphen Haslem may be from one of the wealthiest families in Seacrest, but he’d rather wear an off-the-rack suit than fall victim to his species’ arrogant, elitist-bullshit. Then why’s he dating a Seacrest socialite? He has no fucking idea.
When a string of unprecedented, human-on-Aechaih murders plague the city and one of Fellowship’s students is named a suspect, she vows to do whatever it takes to find the true culprit. Unfortunately, whatever it takes means partnering with the Aechaih Division and Detective Hyphen Haslem. As Fellowship and Hyphen work together, being in each other’s presence creates a unique space for them to connect in an unexpected and meaningful way. As their bond strengthens, their undeniable attraction becomes difficult to dismiss even if being together is forbidden by law.
The deeper they dive into the case, unlocked secrets and long-forgotten memories threaten to upend their world. With so much on the line, Fellowship and Hyphen must find a way to trust the safety they find in each other while fighting to keep Trianah’s dark past from destroying its hopeful future.
