“The pea soup has spoken,” said Caradog. “You are destined for Londinium.”
“Londinium?” asked Miri.
“It was the ancient city from which London sprang. The P.A.W.S. Institute of Londinium is the oldest in the world. It started before the city of today existed and straddles the old and the new. Unfortunately, today it is run by a fool.”

Join Miri as she continues her journey through Umbrae and Londinium with the help of werecats, wild warlocks, an old dog, a duck, and a whole lot of pea soup.

The P.A.W.S. Saga continues with Londinium.

You can do that all in one place with a brand new box set of books 1 to 3. Now available on Amazon.

Y is for Yael

Y

“Shalom, my name is Yael and I’m a friend of Finny the werecat. You’ll meet me briefly in Londinium, but I hope to one day have my own adventure.

To be honest my life today is kind of boring. I live in Petah Tikva in the center of Israel with my mom and dad. I go to school, hang out with my friends, play on my computer – all the normal stuff. Except once in a while Finny visits.

Mom says I’m not allowed to have a cat. Dad’s allergic. So Finny’s only allowed in the house when dad’s away.

But what mum doesn’t realize is that Finny’s not a normal cat. She talks to me and even uses the computer sometimes. She’s gone back to Safed now, but says she’ll come back again soon. I hope she does. I miss her.”

X is for Xavier

X

“Hello, how are you today? My name’s Xavier and I’m so happy to welcome you to London. There are so many wonderful places to visit, but my favorites are the parks and in particular Regent’s Park (where you can find the P.A.W.S. Institute of Londinium) and Kensington Gardens where I live with my mentor, Precipitous Brew.

I’ve lived with Precipitous ever since I graduated from P.A.W.S., and I lived in P.A.W.S. from when I was five years old. You see something strange happened to me on my fifth birthday. I went to Regent’s Park with my parents and while I was there I turned into a duck and went for a swim on the lake.

I’d never turned into a duck before and discovered I liked it a lot. My parents looked for me of course, but as they were looking for a boy, not a mallard, they didn’t find me and went back home.  Precipitous found me the next day and took to P.A.W.S. and so my new life began.”

V is for Victor and a Visit to the Dining Room at the P.A.W.S. Institute of Londinium

V

“Welcome, welcome! Come sit down. Take a seat. The pea soup will be ready shortly. And it’s truly scrumptious today.

I  am Victor and I am both your chef and your host here in the Dining Room at the P.A.W.S. Institute of Londinium. As you can see I am a rather small pig, but I have trained in the Culinary Magical Institute of P.A.W.S. in Paris and  I can produce a veritable banquet.

So start with the pea soup, stay for the shepherd’s pie, and make sure you leave enough room for pudding. Today’s selection is Headmaster Sprocket’s favorite, rhubarb crumble and custard.”

51skfgtrgkl-_sx322_bo1204203200_

Unable to contain the deadly nature of her family secret and powers, nineteen year old Romarin Demetri hails from California, USA to unearth her heritage as a descendant of serial-killer Countess Bathory, the woman that lent Dracula his legend, and cursed Romarin with an appetite for blood. Unenthusiastic about relocating to her birth city of London, a charming paranormal investigator with claim to the throne could change her mind, as he leads her to the only living and distant relative she has: A raven-haired recluse named Talia, who has taken refuge in an old castle in the heart of the city, and doesn’t seem to have a heart of her own. After a rough introduction to the lethal, inappropriate, and enchantingly sarcastic people Romarin calls her housemates, perhaps the other misfits will be her first true friends; however, as much as these people are like her, they still have hidden vendettas, a taste for revenge, and will struggle between what is just and what will settle their psychological upheaval. There is only one way for Romarin to become part of the Supernatural London Underground: Can she be the one who challenges them to put down their ghosts and demons and make their world together?

Five Stars From Readers’ Favorite. As if the supernatural London Underground couldn’t open up any further, Romarin is immersed in different cultures, struggles, factions—and the revelation of her first dangerous foe—that make the hidden world what it is: treacherous. As a detective in pursuit of a Jack The Ripper type killer, Romarin’s sole purpose is to destroy evidence of their secret world, reminding her of how blurred all of their roles are, and that the price for that could very well be one’s life. With rumors of a safe haven, an island where people like her can be free and understood, perhaps she won’t need the cure she vehemently seeks. A cure for a broken heart however, that’s another story. And a cure for a burning heart? That’s just impossible.

U is for Ulysses Ryder

U

“Greetings. My name is Ulysses Ryder. I was the patriarch of the Ryder family and I am honored with a horse statue in the Stables Market in Camden Town, London.

I raised my son Francis in Camden Town and taught him the equine way. And when the time came I passed on my silver horseshoe charm to him.

It can sometimes be lonely being an equine shapeshifter, so if you’re ever in London please visit Francis. He runs a little horse related collectibles stand in Stables Market. You should of course take your picture with my statue too, so you can tell people you saw Ulysses Ryder.”

Francis Ryder features in Londinium – look for him in the fall.

S is for Shirley Olden

S

“Hello dears. My name’s Shirley and I’m the resident P.A.W.S. emissary at London Zoo. My animagus form is a camel – but that doesn’t stop me wearing my apron and my pretty white hat with the yellow flowers. I got that as a gift from my mum before she passed away.

I’m sad when I think about my mum, but she had a good life and she left me all her best recipes – there’s rhubarb crumble, jam tarts, apple amber, and blackberry scones. Come by for a spot of tea and something sweet anytime.”

We’ll meet Shirley in Londinium (P.A.W.S. 4) – Coming this fall.

P is for Precipitous Brew

P

“Good day to you. My name is Precipitous Brew and you will find me (if the need arises) at my home just adjacent to Kensington Gardens in London.

I have actually gone by a lot of names over the decades I have been on this planet, but Precipitous Brew amuses me. I saw it first in a crossword puzzle, a clue for the word STEEP. In my work as alchemist I often steep my potions, or else steep my tea, so you see the name fits.

I act as a consultant to the P.A.W.S. Institute of Londinium. Their current Headmaster, Cornelius Sprocket, is a fool and needs to be watched. Of course they have offered me the position multiple times, but I refuse (as is customary) and prefer to keep my distance.

However if you need to speak to me on important magical business you may make an appointment with my assistant, Xavier. You will most likely find him swimming on the Round Pond in his duck form.”
