Owl & the Electric Samurai

The International Archaeology Association (IAA) is responsible for keeping all things supernatural under wraps. They’re also responsible for ruining the promising archaeology career of Alix Hiboux, better known as Owl. Needless to say, Owl’s still a little sore about that.

Just to keep Owl’s life lively, the IAA has opened a bounty on the two designers of World Quest, the online RPG that is much, much more than it seems. Owl needs to locate the notorious gaming duo before the other mercenaries do. But finding the gamers won’t be easy since every clue points to them hiding out in the legendary lost city of Shangri-La. Not to mention that the last time Owl and the game designers spoke, their conversation didn’t exactly end on the best note…

Meanwhile, undercurrents of supernatural politics are running amok in Tokyo, dragging Owl and her friends into a deadly game of wits with an opponent who calls himself the Electric Samurai. The cost of losing? All-out civil war between two powerful supernatural factions.

All in all, just another great day on the job.

Owl & the City of Angels

Alix Hiboux, better known as Owl, international antiquities thief for hire, is settling into her new contract job for Vegas mogul Mr. Kurosawa, a red dragon with a penchant for ancient, supernatural artifacts. And now he has his sights set on some treasures of the mysterious Syrian City of the Dead that are sitting in a recluse’s private collection.

There’s just one wrinkle. To stop the resurrection of an undead army that could wreak havoc on Los Angeles, Owl must break into a heavily guarded archaeological sight in one of the most volatile regions in the world. A detour through Libya and a run-in with Somali pirates sends the clock ticking hastily toward total paranormal disaster.

Meanwhile, Alexander and the Paris vampires have stopped stalking Owl’s apartment, but they have by no means forgotten their death grudge against her. To top everything off, Owl finds out the hard way that there is nothing heavenly about the City of Angels...

Owl & The Japanese Circus

Ex-archaeology grad student turned international antiquities thief, Alix—better known now as Owl—has one rule. No supernatural jobs. Ever. Until she crosses paths with Mr. Kurosawa, a red dragon who owns and runs the Japanese Circus Casino in Las Vegas. He insists Owl retrieve an artifact stolen three thousand years ago, and makes her an offer she can’t refuse: he’ll get rid of a pack of vampires that want her dead. A dragon is about the only entity on the planet that can deliver on Owl’s vampire problem – and let’s face it, dragons are known to eat the odd thief.

Owl & the Tiger Thieves


The Silk Road was an ancient trade route paved with fortunes and tears in equal measure – the tears part mostly from the very distinct chance of being gutted by an opportunistic supernatural lying in wait.

And somewhere amongst the trade cities lost to the ages the Tiger Thieves stay hidden, assassins and thieves who once guarded the Silk Road against the supernatural monsters that preyed on ancient caravans.

Shame no one has seen one of them in over five hundred years, since they’re the only ones who might be able help Owl stop the reign of Electric Samurai and the descent of the world into supernatural chaos and all its eviscerating glory.

From a Peruvian jail to Venice and all the way to Timbuktu, Owl searches for The Tiger Thieves in the hopes of convincing them to help her - all while fetching artifacts and weapons for Mr Kurosawa’s brewing supernatural war. Considering friendly and diplomatic negotiations aren’t exactly Owl’s strong suit she has her work cut out for her …And her companion on this adventure leaves a lot to be desired and little to trust.

Poking a tiger is never a good idea and tangling with the ancient assassins will take everything Owl has - and force her to decide whether she’s a wayward archaeologist or just another cold-hearted thief.
