Demons of the Nothing
A thin veil exists between Something and Nothing. A veil that can be crossed. All the creatures of the Nothing need is a human life to bind to, and they become Something. These demons may be dependent on their host to remain in the Something, but they are free to use their powers to influence our world.
Nothing can be done about their existence in our world, because they move unseen. Only those with a bound demon can see them, and they are in no hurry to send them back.
Well, except for Detective Christopher Kelsey.
And he can do it, one demon at a time.
Akai was never meant for Kelsey, their bonding was a desperate act by a demon longing for something. As much fun as it is in the Something, closing the veil is something he believes in, because he knows what is waiting to come through
Book 1: Vengeance
Released 28th January 2023
Detective Kelsey is called to a ritual killing, but something feels off. There’s a strange voice in the air, and a shadow in the corner. When he finally listens… and finally sees… He is faced with the prospect of being stuck with a demon for the rest of his life.
But will this demon prove useful when investigating two seemingly unconnected murders, or will he undercover a conspiracy in his own station, as the Pride demon Pridjen demonstrates his rule.

Book 1.5: Crave
Released 16th January 2024
I am the demon of Pride, and getting sent back to the nothing by a little Vengeance has wounded my soul. I crave my companion in the nothing. A fellow demon with whom I can feel complete. But I crave what I can't have. My own life.
Summoned to the Something keeps us apart for decades at a time, so I must make the most of my favourite demon.
The demon of Craving.
Half lust, half gluttony, I am more than enough for him. Or I would be if I was around more.
Luckily, the demon I must share this craving with is asexual, I could not share my Lyric with anyone else.
I'm going to start a rebellion to get what I want. I am Me, and I'm going to damn well own these pronouns.
This is a 10k short story, told from three POVs:
Pridjen, the demon of Pride
Lyric, the demon of Craving
Beluger, the demon of Narcissism
This story ends with the three characters seperated by circumstances, as a HFN, but their story will conclude with their HEA in the main series. This book would be enjoyed best after reading Vengeance
