"Burning rubber where angels fear to tread."
If you walk the streets of Phoenix during the day, you see a city, built by strong hands and strong minds. Her spires of glass and steel pierce the blue skies and scintillate in the blazing Arizona sun. Cars rush through the streets, billowing dust and desert scents. And once and a while you’ll notice a black and silver cab ferrying citizens from place to place.
At night, the city is a different place for most. Behind the hush of burnt out buildings, buried by the sound of booming bass from night clubs, and lurking in the young stone edifices of a city still growing up the restless ambitions of occultists and spirits writhe against the shadows.
As with all rising stars, Phoenix’s cometary coat-tails are more than long enough to ride on—and the shadows she casts longer.
Meet Vex Harrow, taxicab driver and occult investigator. A girl with a dark past and possibly a darker future; in a city that sometimes feels like it has no past, and expects a lot from its future.

I hate to be disappointed.
Vex is a cab driver by day, and a cab driver by night. Apparently (according to the prologue) she averts an apocalypse with the help of some street urchins. There was reference to being…Read More
