Curses and Haunts in the Holy City
By Gail Z. Martin


Charleston, South Carolina is a glittering city built on rivers of blood. Gorgeous architecture, genteel manners and a beautiful harbor make the city a tourist favorite. Yet its prosperity and history is rooted in slavery and piracy, and was the starting place of the bloodiest conflict in American history. That paradox, for me, makes Charleston the perfect setting for an urban fantasy series.

In my Deadly Curiosities series, Cassidy Kincaide uses her skills as a psychometric who can read the history and magic of objects by touching them to get cursed and haunted objects out of the wrong hands. Her best friend, Teag Logan, is a Weaver witch, and her boss is a nearly 600 year-old vampire. They and their magically talented allies protect the world from supernatural threats.



In addition to the novels, the short stories and novellas collected in Trifles and Folly/Trifles and Folly 2 are essentially extra ‘episodes’ that take on new dangers, monsters and magic in more bite-sized lengths. They happen before and between the books, and can be read without having to read the novels first. In fact, they’re a great way to get to know the world of the Deadly Curiosities books and meet the characters before you dive into the books!
