00 – Ebb and Flow – Cover, Warnings and Notes
Welcome to Ebb and Flow, Book #4 of Ash and Blue.
For Stef, it’s time for her first proper steps as an agent – and her first assignment brings her face to face with the undead mermaids that inhabit the river…and the long-ignored reality that they represent.
For Curt, he’s juggling Stef as well as Brisbane’s newest newbie, an international transfer that Ryan has taken in as a favour to be called in later.
And for Vincent, it’s time to figure out how many of Australia’s animals can kill you, and what happens when you get swooped by a magpie.
Ebb and Flow will introduce us to the Phoenix Agency, and as a little cheat sheet, we’ve created a partial organisation chart for your reference.
We will update this as we go, but as a general note going in, we’ll be getting quite a few chapters from a massively traumatised character (Jonathan, this isn’t a spoiler, as the first couple of paragraphs of Chapter #2 will give you a hint as to what we’re in for), and while there isn’t anything directly on-screen (yet – and there might not be), a lot of his thoughts indicate a severe level of abuse. So. Maybe have something sweet to eat, or a plush to cuddle while reading these.
Don’t worry, the jokes are coming, Shade is co-writing with Stormy this time around.
