has always been a bastion for Inquisitor Simon Whitlock—the walled city
a barrier against the chaos of the magical world. After the physical
and emotional pain of his last few mission, safety is all he desires.
a monster is stalking the streets, an abomination far more violent than
even the mystical denizens he’s thus far encountered. The monster has
slain women in Solomon’s Way, the nightlife district of the modern
capital. Solomon’s Way, a part of town Simon and Luthor have frequented
all too often. Solomon’s Way, where the woman he loves lives and works.
Inquisitor Whitlock must face a new breed of monster, one that will
force the Inquisitor to face his very shortcomings as a friend and a
man. Simon has killed a demon, werewolves, and vampires, but some of the
most dangerous demons live inside us all. Demons that can’t be killed
by swords and guns.

Wolves of the Northern Rift (Magic & Machinery Book 1)
Magic is an abomination.
It spread from the Rift, a great chasm hundreds of miles long that
nearly split the southern continent in two. The Rift was a portal, a
gateway between their world of science and the mythological world of
On the northern continent of Ocker, King Godwin declared
that no magical monstrosity would be allowed within their borders. The
Royal Inquisitors were formed to investigate reports of mystical
occurrences and, should they be found, to destroy them.
Simon Whitlock knows his responsibilities all too well. Along with the
apothecary, Luthor Strong, they’ve spent two years inquiring into such
reports of magical abominations, though they’ve discovered far more
charlatans than true magical creatures. When assigned to investigate
Haversham and its reports of werewolves, Simon remains unconvinced that
the rumors are true. What he discovers in the frozen little hamlet is
that the werewolves are far more real than he believed; yet they’re
hardly the most dangerous monster in the city.
The Blood Thief of Whitten Hall (Magic & Machinery Book 2)
In a world of science,
magic is an abomination, but not the vile creation Royal Inquisitor
Simon Whitlock once believed it to be. Accompanied by his apothecary
companion, Luthor Strong, and Matilda Hawke, a werewolf, they return to
the capital of Callifax, eager to convalesce after their last adventure.
peace is short-lived, however, as they are quickly sent on another
mission. It seems the iron mines of Whitten Hall have ceased their
production, no longer sending its ore to the crown. The Ministry of
Trade has sent inquiries, but its representatives have all fled from the
train ride to the distal outpost. It seems a vampire stalks the trains
in and out of Whitten Hall, a vampire that will reveal the secret of the
iron mine and the darkness that resides within.
