The Shadows: Gardens & Ways - Jinx
is a novella adapted from short stories originally published in 2008 (and the collection published in 2010). The first book comprises approximately 24k words.
The setting is, predominantly, metropolitan; "urban fantasy/horror" might be the most accurate term. Characters include sorceresses, vampires, werewolves (all of whom have bills to pay and jobs to do - it's not *that* sort of fantasy). Mix in some possibly-governmental conspiracies and support of the lesser evil, top with science-based examination of "vampires" (and allow to sit for a few years until the furor of that other series blows over).
The plan is to present this work (hereafter "SGW: Jinx") as a kinetic novel to provide introduction to the series in general and starting point for the ADV-style ("choose the adventure") storylines.
The second book (working title: "The Vampire's Garden") follows one of the possible story lines from the first.
