I'm just an author, standing in front of a reader, asking them to leave a review. Is that how that line goes? ;)
As some of you so astutely noticed, yes! There is now an ebook box set of the first three Vesik books. Know what I'm going to ask now? I know it's far fetched, but do you like chimichangas? Err, I mean, could you please leave a review on the box set?

If you've read Days Gone Bad, Wolves ...

Days Gone Bad

My name is Damian Valdis Vesik. I am a necromancer, an ability feared and hated as much as the powers my master and I set ourselves against. We've vanquished many evils, but now something is releasing an old darkness, forcing us to hunt an enemy beyond anything I've faced before. I was already busy enough with vampires, fairies, witches, Watchers, weddings, and... damn, I need a vacation.
