"This gritty urban fantasy, full of beings seemingly escaped from Heaven and Hell, is extraordinary."

Charlie Madigan Series

Welcome to Atlanta...


Thirteen years ago, scientists discovered two parallel planes of existence, hellish Charbydon and heaven-like Elysia. The beings in these worlds inspired our myths of angels, demons, gods, and monsters.

They’d been visiting us for thousands of years, using our world as a battle ground and neutral zone, interfering in our lives, speaking our languages, doing good works and miracles, and committing horrible crimes. And now we know the truth. Elysia and Charbydon, and the beings in them, aren’t the things of Sunday school lessons and Hallmark figurines. And since the discovery, they’ve integrated into our society, working among us, becoming law-abiding or lawbreaking citizens.

Atlanta is home to the largest off-world sector in the country. Underground has expanded and is now home to a dense population from Elysia and Charbydon.

And it's Charlie Madigan's job to keep the peace...
