COVER REVEAL – THE APATURA IRIS by Jon Messenger
Magic is an abomination—one that has grown tired of being hunted. The Inquisitors have hunted magical creatures for a dozen years, striking fear into those that dare escape the Rift. But now, in the swamps in Northern Ocker, a new evil is rising—one that’s not afraid of Inquisitors. Simon and Luthor must hunt this new evil into the very house of madness. And the madness seems to be catching…

In a world of science, magic is an abomination.
Magic is an abomination. It spread from the Rift, a great chasm hundreds of miles long that nearly split the southern continent in two. The Rift was a portal, a gateway between their world of science and the mythological world of magic.
On the northern continent of Ocker, King Godwin declared that no magical monstrosity would be allowed within their borders. The Royal Inquisitors were formed to investigate reports of mystical occurrences and, should they be found, to destroy them.
Inquisitor Simon Whitlock knows his responsibilities all too well. Along with the apothecary, Luthor Strong, they’ve spent two years inquiring into such reports of magical abominations, though they’ve discovered far more charlatans than true magical creatures. When assigned to investigate Haversham and its reports of werewolves, Simon remains unconvinced that the rumors are true. What he discovers in the frozen little hamlet is that the werewolves are far more real than he believed; yet they’re hardly the most dangerous monster in the city.
