Can a disabled veteran and a magical dancer learn the secret of dreamwalk, or will demons turn the world into an all-you-can-eat buffet?
Disabled, scarred veteran Idrián Odair is running out of time. If he doesn’t figure out how to renew the magical barrier protecting his tribal lands near Magic, New Mexico soon, they’ll be vulnerable to marauders, thieves, and worst of all, tourists. Trouble is, his grandfather died before telling him the secret, and Idrián is the only dreamwalk warrior left. Except for the stunning dancer he saw only once and can’t forget.
Riya Sanobal, mostly human dancer in Denver, is about to be named artistic director of a dance company. She can’t stop thinking about the sexy, eagle-footed warrior she’s been dreaming about for weeks. Especially since she’s stuck with an obnoxious visiting star and a big donor with a mega sleaze factor.
When Idrián’s grandfather insists they must drive to Denver to protect the dancer, finding her turns out to be the easy part. A powerful, greedy demon wants to invite more of his kind to town to make the world an all-you-can-eat buffet. He needs a dancer to do it, and he’s targeted Riya. If the discovers Riya’s gift for portal magic, he’ll never let her go.
Not if Idrián can help it. But even spiriting Riya away to his New Mexico home won’t save them if they can’t figure out the secret of dreamwalk.
In Graves Below is part of S.E. Smith’s The Worlds of Magic, New Mexico, where creatures of fairy tales, myth, and nightmares are free to be themselves and find their happily ever after.
