Publication date: January 17th, 2023
Genres: Adult, Fantasy, Mystery

Society, suitors, and…serial murders?

As much as she desires to please her family, gently-bred herbalist Jessa Caldwell has no intention of making a suitable match—not when she’s seeking the truth about the taint of the fae that lies within her. If she’s to escape the madness brought on by fae-touch, she must devote her energies to seeking a cure.

But then mysterious tattoos begin to appear on the citizens of Avons. None recall receiving these harbingers of death, but all die at the hand of an untraceable killer days or weeks after being marked.

When the tattoo appears on her beloved mentor, Jessa seeks the Magistry with information on the case—yet they refuse to consider her findings, so she must risk both social censure and her own safety to hunt for the killer herself.

Her one possible ally represents her greatest fear—the encroaching Otherworld consuming her mind—and may well undo all her efforts to control her fae-touch. Yet if she forsakes the offered aid, the killer will go free.

Something sinister stalks the streets of her city, and she must decide…how far will she go to stop the killing?

Tattoo of Crimson, a gaslamp fantasy novel, is the first book in the Blood of the Fae series. If you like quick-minded heroines who solve cases with logic and intuition, beautiful yet deadly fae, and Otherworldly intrigues, then you’ll love this mystery set in a world of manners and mythical monsters.

“Why are you truly here, Miss Caldwell? Have you come to join the attention-seekers? Do you intend to gather information to sell to the gazettes? You would not be the first, but I must tell you we deal with such individuals severely.”
“The Magistry did put out a call for information, and I’ve come in response to it—and out of concern. I would never consider disrupting your work to try to profit from it.” I drew in a shuddering breath. “Have you ever lost someone you loved?”
A muscle near his jaw twitched, but he remained silent.
“If you had, you’d understand. It’s worth any amount of effort to prevent another such loss.” I looked out the diamond-paned windows but could catch no glimpse of green, no leaf or bloom to soften the grim surroundings or provide comfort. “Given the tension between the Alchemists’ Guild and King Everill, I thought it possible that the Magistry remained unaware of their endeavors.”
All expression vanished from his face, leaving it blank as stone.
Blight and rot. I rattled on to fill the ominous silence. “I imagined if you knew, you might approach the details of her protection differently or you might use the information to press the Guild for answers. Perhaps I was mistaken, but I felt it my duty to tell you and to offer assistance corresponding with Alchemist Tarquin on the matter, if you wish.”
“We need no assistance.” His eyes darkened to a storm-gray. “If you have any actual evidence to report, we’ll gladly receive it. Otherwise, leave the investigation with the Magistry, where it belongs.”
“Will you at least consider—”
“Enough, Miss Caldwell.” His hand cut downward. “Since you evidently lack a watchful guardian, I’ll offer you this counsel: cease meddling in the affair. I don’t want to find your body alongside hers.”
“And I don’t want any bodies found at all.”
