The Agency, Volume 1
Dianne Sylvan - 2013
She runs far and fast to Austin, where she thinks she'll be safe, but even a new life can't protect her from the past--and before she knows it, armed men storm her apartment and she is hauled in for interrogation by a strange young man in a long black coat...a young man who doesn't seem to have a reflection. Established as an independent sister organization to the FBI, the Shadow Agency fights the kind of crime normal law enforcement can't: demon-summoning sorcerers, dealers in illegal magical artifacts, even drug lords selling the kind of Ecstasy that could bring on the Apocalypse. Sara finds herself thrown into the Agency's administrative department, but that's only the beginning for the Witch, whose career trajectory and sex life both spin wildly away from the mundane as soon as she sets foot in the Agency's base of operations. In this collection of short stories that first appeared on her website in 2008, Dianne Sylvan introduces Austin's occult law enforcement: Jason Adams, lead Agent, vampire, and violinist; his snarky twin sister Beck, who goes through more bullets than blood; Rowan, an Elf who was once a sacred prostitute, now scarred inside and out from years of slavery; Ness, the human leader of the Texas branch of the Agency; Frog, a brilliant researcher working to combine science and sorcery; Sage, a Witch and baker whose cupcakes are to die for; and of course Sara herself, who will turn all of their lives upside down as she learns how to use her psychic abilities and discovers the depth of her own strength.
