Heart of a Dragon - Book 1 of The DeChance C...
Donovan DeChance is a collector of ancient manuscripts and books, a practicing mage, and a private investigator. Over the span of a long life, he has gathered and archived the largest occult library in the world.
When a local houngan begins meddling with powers she may not be able to control, a turf war breaks out between the Dragons motorcycle club and the Los Escorpiones street gang—a war that threatens to open portals between worlds and destroy the city in the process.
With his lover, Amethyst; his familiar, Cleo – an Egyptian Mau the size of a small bobcat; the dubious aid of a Mexican sorcerer named Martinez and the budding gifts of a young artist named Salvatore, DeChance begins a race against time, magic, and almost certain death.
The fate of the city rests on his success, and on the rare talent of a boy who walks in two worlds, and dreams of dragons
PRAISE FOR Heart of a Dragon:
"Heart of a Dragon is a brilliant addition to the supernatural genre. Full of bad juju, voodoo, chills and flat out adrenal thrills, fans of Jim Butcher's Dresden Files, Richard Kadrey's Sandman Slim and Clive Barker's Harry D'Amour won't want to miss. Donovan DeChance is a hero fit to face every demon hell has got to throw at him." - Steven Savile - Author of Silver, The Last Angel, and London Macabre
