A new urban fantasy penned by seasoned pro Chaz Brenchley under the pen name Ben Macallan. Desdaemona taps right into the Zeitgeist of such popular TV shows as Being Human and, according to acquiring Solaris editor Jon Oliver, " ...wise, witty and terrific fun..." and " ...does something different with the genre while still managing to be a ripping good yarn." - and you can't ask for more than that. Desdaemona is released as a paperback original in early June.
"Jordan helps kids on the run find their way back home. He’s good at that. He should be – he’s a runaway himself. Sometimes he helps the kids in other, stranger ways. He looks like a regular teenager, but he’s not. He acts like he’s not exactly human, but he is. He treads the line between mundane reality and the world of the supernatural, including the awesome Powers That Be.
Desdaemona also knows the non-human world far too well. She tracks Jordan down and enlists his aid in searching for her lost sister Fay, who did a Very Bad Thing involving an immortal. This may be a mistake – for both of them. Too many people are interested now, and some of them are not people at all!"
