What would you do if a demon threatened your mother's life? If you're like Koa, you'd sharpen your enchanted sword and go after him...
Our world is threatened by the creatures of an alternate land called the Netherworld. Koa and the Netherworld division are there to keep the vampire population in check. Koa is a powerful half-blood vampire. Her best friend is her boss, she has a cursed mother, an enchanted sword, and an attractive human pet.

Koa also has a problem. A Netherworld serial killer, with a taste for little girls, threatens everything Koa has worked hard to protect. Not even Koa's boss, Halston can stop him. But he knows one prisoner that can. Too bad that prison is in the Netherworld.

Exclusive Excerpt 

Koa heard a faint whistling sound. Her ears perked up to better hear. She narrowed her eyes as she saw a light approaching them. Halston stopped on the craggy path and held a hand out for Koa to do the same. “Wait.”
A swoosh of air made Koa’s hair blow furiously past her face. Whatever flew past them cast a dim light onto their surroundings. Koa drew her Lyrinian sword.
Halston stood his guard and they watched as a woman landed before them. She had blood red hair, shaved on one side revealing a set of cryptic tattoos. The other side was long and wavy, reaching her elbow.
Koa stared at the woman and positioned her feet in a battle stance. Her Lyrinian sword was held ready. The power started to pulse within her veins. The feeling was intoxicating.
The woman smiled. It wasn’t a friendly smile. Her eyes were large and a dark blue. Koa held her breath when the woman drew her own sword, massive and curved like a hook. The mists curled around it as she held it towards Koa’s face.
“Don’t draw that sword little girl. Unless… you plan on using it.” Her lips curled into a grin that made Koa uneasy. The woman reached out towards Koa with her other hand.
Koa swung her sword up with lightning speed. It rested at the tip of the woman’s throat.
“Oh, don’t worry. I intend on using it.”
The woman’s smile widened, revealing perfect white teeth. She withdrew her hand. "Fiesty. We might get along." Her eyes turned down to look at Koa’s blade. She didn’t move as Koa had expected. Instead, she held her position before Koa’s sword, and turned her gaze up to Halston’s.
“What took you so long?”
Koa’s eyes went from Halston to the woman. Her heart raced. She stared at the tip of her own sharp blade. Halston didn’t draw his infinity gun as she had expected. He stood completely still, and let his shield fade.
Koa felt her fury intensify. Why wasn’t he protecting her? He just stood there.
Before Koa could react, the red-haired woman grabbed Koa’s blade with her hands and yanked it from her. She held both swords and ignored Koa’s frustrated gasp. She was quick… quicker than Koa.
Koa frowned. No, the bitch just caught me off guard, she reassured herself.
“Stop playing around Evina,” Halston said as he glanced at Koa’s angry face.
Evina stepped closer to Halston with a lascivious grin. “Oh, golden boy,” she purred, pressing her large bosom into his chest. She played with a lock of his hair and he pulled his face away. “Who said that I was playing?”
Koa was furious. The woman had disarmed her as if she were a child with a plastic toy sword. Her cheeks reddened. She wanted to smack that smug look off Evina’s face.
Koa noticed that Evina wore very little clothing. Her black and red corset pushed her bosom nearly up to her chin, and her tiny waist was wrapped with a belt loaded with weapons. She wore leather gaiters that reached to her thigh and a thin cloth that draped her front and back. She looked like something out of one of those fantasy books Koa had read as a child.
Koa didn’t like how Evina was leering at Halston. Her brows furrowed and she balled up her fists. Koa’s nails cut into her palms. She felt her ears grow hot.
“I didn’t think you’d actually bring her back.” Evina looked Koa up and down. She tilted her head with a curious look. “She still looks like a child.”
Halston cleared his throat. He seemed uncomfortable. “Koa, meet Evina… princess of the Central Dominace of the Netherworld. Prince Jax’s sister.”
“Better known as Lyrinia,” Evina said with a smile. She watched Koa expectantly.
Koa didn’t return the smile, but she couldn’t help catching the connection between Lyrinia and her Lyrinian sword.
Koa’s perplexed look made Evina laugh. It was a seductive laugh that made Koa cringe. Evina tossed Koa’s sword onto the rocky path as if it were rubbish. She stroked Halston’s cheek, giving him a lingering look. She stepped out on the path.
"A lot has changed since you left, Halston. I have changed. Jax has changed. But one thing remains the same. Father.” Evina’s eyes darkened when she mentioned King Greggan.
Halston nodded. “I knew Jax would be punished for what he did. We all did.”
