Castor Kovalenko, socialite and high ranking member of the Dragon Triad, is worried about his cousin, Lynx. He’s been missing for weeks and there have been rumors circling the city, rumors that he’s been taken hostage by the hacker thief Yoru Katana. Castor needs to find his cousin before it’s too late. He’s willing to do nearly anything to bring Lynx to safety.
Jaffa Sharp is trying to stay alive. It’s not easy when the only thing you’ve ever learned to do is steal. Even harder when he keeps running into one annoying Dragon prince who keeps trying to get him arrested.
When Castor uses Jaffa to get to his cousin and the thief Katana, they both learn that nothing is as it seemed, including Lynx and Katana himself. Castor and Jaffa soon become involved in a plot to take the city back from the villainous triads. They find themselves fighting the people they thought were their leaders — and fighting an attraction stronger than either of them have felt before. Nothing is certain in the precarious new world they find themselves in: Life, death, friend, enemy, and the most uncertain thing of all…love
When I was working on putting together my New Seattle world, I wanted to incorporate some of the more familiar aspects of a dystopian world — darkness, a deconstructed city, crime, a seedy underbelly, all those things that make the dystopian world great and recognizable. I went online and collected a bunch of images, mostly of what the deteriorated exterior of the city would look like and the inside, at least in the better parts of town where it is perfect and well maintained, since those are the two main areas where my stories take place. I loved the contrast between the gritty and dark and the falsely pristine and perfect, which again is the makings of a great dystopian setting and society.
So here’s the lookbook I put together from pictures I found all over the place!
I’m Mj O’Shea:) I grew up, and still live, in sunny Washington state in a little old house. While I love to visit other places, I can’t imagine calling anywhere else home.
I spent my childhood writing stories. Sometime in my early teens, the stories turned to romance. Most of those were about me, my friends, and our favorite movie and pop stars. Hopefully, I’ve come a long way since then!!
