Their reprieve does not last for long and the disaster they left behind follows them, threatening to destroy their new home, lives, and sanity.

The heist of a strange mirror was only the beginning of his boss’s unsettling dealings with a purported witch. Dragged into the dark underworld of the bustling Ixpoli, Azarola must make a lethal choice and bear its mark. That mark opens a door into a sinister pact that threatens to consume the city. Will Azarola be able to muster up the forces necessary to break the curse?

This is  the first book in the Black Mark series.  I had a lot of fun writing this and I hope it will entertain others just as much as it entertains me. Follow the link for a preview of the first chapter.
