A Daring Mage. A Damaged Monster. A Deathly Mission.

In a world blind to magic...

Chest of Stone Out Nov. 14!

Mage Clea Reese hunts a deadly Creature that ritually slaughtered three shifter children. In order to unearth the beast, she needs the aid of her broken lover, James Larrimer.

Together, they aim to smoke out the killer while pursuing Clea’s quest for the magical Chest of Stone and preventing the Magical and the Mundane worlds from splintering. 

Their hunt for the beast drags them from the Mundane realm to the Magic one, where a lethal sorceress seeks to destroy Clea and procure the chest for herself.

The race for the Chest is on, but time's against Clea and Larrimer when the Creature kidnaps another child and seeks Clea for its own dark purposes.

Chapter 1, Chest of Stone

The glowing Celtic spiral tattooed on my wrist hurt like a bitch. It pulsed, too. Maybe this time. Maybe…
Plop. Plop. Plop. Dammit to hell. Blood dripped from my nose to plop into the brownie mix. That sucked. My magic sucked. Everything sucked.

A Mage. A Monster. A Mission.

In a world blind to magic...

As magical and mundane worlds retwine, empath and unawakened Mage Clea Reese, must team up with the secretive and powerful James Larrimer to hunt her mentor’s killer and stop the forces of corruption from obtaining the elusive Chest of Bone, the ultimate source of otherworldly power.

Larrimer is a predator who stalks endangered-animal traders. Or so it appears.

None are prepared for the fusion of Clea's and Larrimer's song, a wild resonance which can bind one to the other.

Powerful forces align against them, and only Clea, the singular Key, and Larrimer stand between these malignant entities and their ruthless quest.

"The word 'former' sucks. Former friend. Former lover. Former astronaut. Former anything implies that the past was better than the now.

I don't believe that. All you have is now, and maybe a few tomorrows...if you're lucky."        —Clea Reese, Chapter 1, Chest of Bone

Chest of Bone is a mystery wrapped in fantasy suspense, with a healthy dose of romance thrown in.

Much like Nalini Singh and Ilona Andrews, Patricia Briggs and Grace Draven—authors she adores—Vicki is passionate about the stories she tells, the worlds she builds, and the characters she draws.
