“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.

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.

T is for Tessa

T

“Hi everybody. My name is Tessa and I live at the P.A.W.S. Institute of the Midwest. I came to P.A.W.S. when I was eleven years old. I’ve had magic ever since I was small and my parents felt it was important for me to learn to control it.

When I first got to P.A.W.S. I sat down in the library with the librarian, Cedric Ainsworth, Senior. He’s an animagus owl. He had this huge tome listing every creature you could imagine. I looked at them all and was overwhelmed. How would I ever choose?

Turns out I don’t have to. While most animagi can only change into one creature, there’s one exception. Animagi who choose to become birds can learn to change their forms to fit the situation. I’d always wanted to be able to fly, so a bird was perfect.

To begin with I chose small birds, robins and sparrows mostly. But one day while I was hanging out in the Jewel Box and looking at all the pretty colors  I decided that I wanted one bird form that was just for fun that I would only turn into when I was in the Jewel Box. I chose the toucan and it’s my favorite form by far. When I have a spare moment I come to Jewel Box , fly up into the foliage, and change into my toucan form.

So if you’re ever in Forest Park come look through the windows of the Jewel Box. You never know, you might just see a toucan. And if you do, give me a wave!”

Q is for Quentin Frakes

Q

“Hello, my name is Quentin and I am a magician, alchemist and shapeshifter. I was born a long time ago in Cheshire, England. I grew up with the young King Arthur and was an apprentice of the great magician, Merlin.

It was Merlin who fashioned the silver charm that I wear around my neck. The charm is imbued with a fragment of my soul and allows me to take the form of any bird. I choose whichever is the most practical from hawks and eagles, to seagulls and swallows.

I have lived in many places around the globe including Vienna, Wales, and New York, though currently I reside at the P.A.W.S. Institute of the Midwest in St. Louis.”

M is for Miri Katz

M

“Hello everyone. My name is Miri Katz and I live at the P.A.W.S. Institute of the Midwest. I was born in the Lower East Side of Manhattan where I lived with my omama, Celia, until I was ten years old. My mother Nora left me with my omama when I was a baby and I never knew either of my parents.

That was okay. I loved living with Omama and our cats, Kitty and Susie. Omama came from Vienna and made the best Viennese cakes and pastries and sometimes I would bake with her in my own mini cake pans. I’d invite my friend Jenny up to our apartment to share the cakes after we were done baking.

Jenny and I would often play “fairies” on the steps of our apartment building. Jenny was fascinated with fairies and liked to draw them on her sketch pad. I liked to write and filled notebooks with stories.

The night before my tenth birthday Omama woke me and gave me her silver cat charm. The next day she died and my aunt Cynthia came and took me to St. Louis. I’d never been on a plane before and didn’t like it too much. Cynthia and David didn’t really want me and shipped me off to a fancy boarding school, the Saul Emmanuel Academy. I hated it there and was bullied almost from the day I arrived.

Then one day something amazing happened. Some mean girls chased me into a tree and I found my power. I changed into my black cat form for the first time and was able to give those girls a little payback for all the bullying.

A few months later Josh (a werewolf) rescued me from Saul Emmanuel and took me to P.A.W.S. where I started my new life.

You can read an interview with me here and of course read my story in P.A.W.S.

So what’s it about?

Step into the Shadows of Umbrae …

Miri’s world at P.A.W.S. in St. Louis is falling apart. First, Danny is accused of stealing her opapa’s charm. But before he can defend himself, he mysteriously disappears. Miri seeks Josh for help and advice, but he too has gone missing.

Then Lilith has a vision – Miri dragged away by wolves. Miri needs answers, answers that she feels sure are hidden in the blank pages of the book of Argentum.

With the help of Lilith, she travels to the ancient city of Safed. There, with the aid of a mystical rabbi and an outspoken werecat, her omama’s story is slowly revealed. And Miri uncovers something else, a world hidden deep beneath our own – the labyrinth of shadows also known as Umbrae.
