The Earth Mother is under siege. Demons from other worlds sneak through magical portals and wreak havoc on earth. In response, she created the Keepers, a group of shapeshifters made from the world’s most skilled predators. The fate of North Georgia hangs in the balance when an unknown menace with a new magic threatens to bring the Keepers to their knees. It’s up to Obie, the Keeper of North Georgia, and some unlikely allies to put an end to the destruction before it’s too late. What will happen when the hunter becomes the hunted?


Petrified is a solid urban fantasy with interesting mythology and characters that feel worth knowing.

I couldn’t put it down. What I didn’t expect (but absolutely loved) was the “jaded detective” style narration by the protagonist, much in the style of the Maltese Falcon or Bladerunner. It’s like fantasy meets Sam Spade.

An exciting debut novel that is wildly fun to read and builds a familiar yet strange and dangerous world that leaves you looking forward to the next trip.
