“Mona Livelong: Paranormal Detective”
Volume One of this “steampunk horror novel” draws the reader right in from the first sentence, “Herman Lowe had less than an hour to live.” At you first beginning reading, you get the sense that the story is based in the past. The dialogue is familiar, but then trolls appear and supernatural events occur, and you start to realize that the book is luring you into another world. The action swirls around Mona Livelong, a sorceress (a fact that she keeps to herself) who is investigating a series of unexplained murders.
Read the description from the back cover:
A serial killer is snuffing out the lives of affluent people of color in Monterrey, North America. Hard-boiled homicide detectives Curtis Dubois and Harold Lowe are assigned to the case. But when they realize that the killer may not be human, Mona Livelong, a young paranormal detective, is brought in to help solve the case. As Mona races to unravel the clues to save Monterrey, she finds herself caught up in a terrifying plot to change the very face of North America.
