Fracture (The Machinists, Book 1)

Allyn Kaplan’s life is anything but magical. As a first year associate at a prestigious Portland law firm, his professional life is on the rise. All that is turned upside-down by a mysterious attack on his life by strange people with stranger abilities. Thrust into an underground world of magic where rival Families are on the brink of war, Allyn wants only to return to his normal life and thriving career.

But distancing himself from this new reality is nearly impossible. Haunted by the attack and questioning why he was targeted to begin with, Allyn's questions only deepen with the sudden disappearance of his sister. The only place to turn for answers, and for help, is a Magi Family whose agenda he wants no part of. Yet with his sister's life on the line, he may have no choice but to pick a side.

Martyr Cover and Blurb Reveal!!!

Hi everyone! It’s that time again–time to reveal the cover and blurb for Martyr, Book #3 of The Machinists. I’m incredibly excited about this book and hope you are too! Without further ado…


Allyn Kaplan and his team of Machinists have successfully led the McCollum Family through an FBI manhunt, finding refuge in the home of a former rival. As the Family struggles to recover, the magi leadership has denied all pleas for help. So when the Arch Mage pays the Family an unexpected visit, Allyn fears the worst. But the news is even more terrifying than he imagined.

An ancient Family has been massacred by an unknown enemy and there’s only one survivor–a young girl who’s too traumatized to tell her story. Hoping to avoid igniting a panic within the magi Order, Arch Mage Westarra presents the McCollum Family with a secret offer they can’t refuse: discover who’s behind the attack and he’ll re-admit them into the magi Forum.

Once again, the McCollum Family turns to Allyn and his Machinists to see it through. Unfortunately for Allyn, the Arch Mage has a secret of his own, and the truth will change the course of magi history forever.
