black the sun.jpg“He’s just like his cousin,” the seer grunted. “Sh*t followed him everywhere, too. No matter where he went, there it was.” 

Black and Miri go to Thailand, to Black’s private resort on the island of Koh Mangaan. There, they find themselves running a quasi-refugee center for seers fleeing Lucky Lucifer, otherwise known as Miri’s Uncle Charles.

Black also gives Miri an ultimatum––right as Thai Park Rangers ask for Black’s help finding two missing tourists from Bangkok, who vanish in the wild, mountainous national park that takes up half the island.

The rangers worry the other inhabitants of the island might be involved––a group of strange foreigners who’ve lived on the island for decades, feral humans calling themselves the Nachtsonne, or “Night Sun.”

Black sends a team to help, but soon the search team goes missing––and Nick, Angel, Cowboy, Dex and Jem with them.

Worse, a new force seems to have awakened on the island––a force somehow connected to Black himself. When Black and Miri’s friends remain missing, it becomes clear the danger is real, and Black must face the mountain and the Nachtsonnehimself.

In the process, he’ll call upon the least-likely person imaginable for help.

Standalone novel. No cliffhanger.

BLACK THE SUN is book nine in the QUENTIN BLACK MYSTERY series, a paranormal mystery series starring brilliant but dangerous psychic detective, Quentin Black, and his partner, forensic psychologist Miri Fox. It’s also a spinoff of the BRIDGE & SWORD SERIES.

THE QUENTIN BLACK SERIES encompasses a number of dark, gritty paranormal mystery arcs with science fiction elements, starring brilliant and mysterious Quentin Black and forensic psychologist Miriam Fox. For fans of realistic paranormal mysteries with romance elements, the series spans continents and dimensions as Black solves crimes, takes on other races and tries to keep his and Miri’s true identities secret to keep them both alive.

Sometimes, even mid series, a story provides the reader with a feeling of satisfaction over where the tale is going.  This is such a story.  I’m not going to tell you why, because, well, spoilers.  But I enjoyed it immensely.

The usual twists and turns abound, and the ending leaves the reader hanging, in a manner that I have come to expect from the author.

Clearly, the fight isn’t over just yet.

Bring it on.

I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.

About the author

I’m a USA Today bestselling author of sexy, apocalyptic and cyberpunk-y paranormal mystery, alternate history, urban fantasy & supernatural suspense, often with a metaphysical bent.

While it might seem like I have a (perhaps overly?) friendly relationship with my dark side, if you read my stuff, you’ll discover pretty quick that, at base and in my heart, I’m a big, sappy, pie in the sky idealist, and that I always want the light to win, love to win, the good guys to win, compassion to win, the bad guys to be redeemed or at least to find love…even if they have to crawl through mud and blood and crazy sex and betrayal and broken fingernails to get there.

Of course, not all of them make it…but I always hope that they will.

Other stuff: I have a background in journalism and political history, and a Master’s degree in the latter. I love to travel and to interact with different cultures and histories and I’ve traveled a fair bit (although never enough – there are always new places to see!).  I’ve also lived a lot of different places, including all over the United States where I was born, as well as stints in Europe, Australia and now Asia, including a few years in India and now a few in Thailand.

Currently, I live and work full-time as a writer in Bangkok, Thailand, where I have a beautiful view of a Buddhist wat right out the window while I write.
