Magics, Modern Magics, Book 3
In Relics, the creatures of magic returned to Earth.
In Portals, magic itself returned.
In Magics, we’ll wish it hadn’t.
The laws of magic have become as real as the laws of physics, and humans with magical powers are becoming the norm.
But human magic is out of control – powerful, wild, unpredictable. Five ultra-powerful humans rise above the rest to begin a reign of terror, and entire cities fall. The elves and other Elder Races are desperate to find and stop these magical terrorists. But for the first time, the magic of the Elder Races is surpassed.
Thulu and La Fi join the hunt for the human supes causing the planet-wide massacres. With their own magic evolving and erratic, the race to catch the killers becomes far more difficult. They need to find them and stop the chaos before there is no world left to save.
Five Stars for The Modern Magics Series
The books trace what happens when magic returns to Earth, as seen through the eyes of paranormal detectives, Thulu and La Fi.
The Modern Magics Stories are set prior to the main events in Relics, Book1 and involve some of the couple’s more interesting cases.

Excerpt from Magics, Modern Magics, Book 3
The dead girl jumped as the series of explosions rocked our office. To tell the truth, so did Thulu and I. My husband and I exchanged a long look as the sounds of shrieking and groaning from metal and concrete giants shattered the morning. The time had come. My heart fell, and I felt tears threaten.
There were only those few moments of regret before the lights flickered and went out. The skylight allowed us to see each other, so Thulu and I moved quickly.
“This is it,” I said to Thulu, my heart pounding. I shook my head regretfully at our client. “I’m sorry. Things are going to be bad for a while. I’m not sure we will be able to take your case for some time.”
Blanche Nielsen sat in the chair before our desks, blond hair swinging as her head swiveled between the two of us. The look of alarm still on her slightly transparent face.
“What do you mean?”
Thulu snatched up Carter, our three-year-old son, from where he was coloring. Carter looked from Thulu to me, his small face showing alarm, but we had made sure to prepare him for this as much as we could. He didn’t say anything, just wrapped his arms around Thulu’s neck.
Thulu glanced at Blanche as he stuffed a few favorite toys into Carter’s messenger bag. “We’ve been expecting something to happen. You see, our whole solar system is moving through an area of space where magic has become real. Things are going to get crazy for a while.” He paused as he glanced around the office and shouldered the bag. “The dead should be fine, but we won’t be able to help anyone out until things settle down.”
During his explanation, I quickly grabbed our tablets and stuffed them into my own bag. I picked up our puppy, Treya, attaching her leash before putting her in the pet travel bag. In less than a minute, we moved to the back door, trailed forlornly by our dead client.
We moved smoothly, in spite of not having practiced our evacuation. However, our plan of action had been in place, and we knew what needed to be done.
We went through our small storage area, but it was dim without the skylight. At the back door, Thulu turned to hand Carter to me. My son’s arms went around my neck clinging tightly. I reached up to loosen them as Parker popped in, eyes huge with what I thought might be shock, but his jaw was clenched with determination. The young ghost had more substance to him than our new client. A client we might never be able to help.
“Be careful opening the door,” Parker said, just as the ghosts of my grandmother, Nana Fae, and Thulu’s mother, Mama Deb, materialized.
“How bad is it?” Thulu asked.
“Bad,” said Mama Deb at the same time Nana Fae spoke.
