Oro County Chronicles

Another Los Angeles Night


The Magician David Zane has had better nights. Shot twice in the back, left for dead, surrounded by hostile rioters, and lying on a table with a vampire surgeon digging into the holes looking for the bullets within, he is disheartened to learn that this is only the beginning.

During the 1992 Los Angeles Riots, a meeting between vampires and magicians has gone terribly wrong. David Zane managed to save the life of a young magician aristocrat named Ellen Corey from his own commander and survived, barely, only to learn soon after that Ellen Corey, due to her rather high position in court, has become the target of some of the most dangerous immortal inhabitants of the city. Worse, he soon learns he can expect no help.

With no place to hide and no one to turn to, Zane, while deeply injured, must escort Ellen Corey across the City of Angels over one of the fieriest and violent nights in its history.

Complete Story

Clan of Midnight


The immortal races are revealed, the world has changed, and after twenty five years of living in secret after a faked death, the immortal magician David Zane returns home to the life he had been forced to leave behind armed only with a United States citizenship, a government issued home and an eagerness to get back to a normal life. His plans are soon complicated, however, when a newspaper reveals his identity and immortal race to the community at large.

Suddenly, Zane finds himself pulled into a police investigation to help with a series of murders by magic of several teenage girls. Utilizing his streetwise skills earned as a mercenary in the underworld he quickly discovers that there is not one killer but many killers, a murderous cult bent on a great demonic ritual whose members secretly span every corner of his home county. In the process of coming to such knowledge Zane finds himself in a violent game of cat and mouse that inevitably places him, as the only magician the police can use or even contact, as the only thing standing between the innocent victims and the Clan of Midnight.
