Furies at the Gate

This is an NTSR short set in London in the 1970s, introducing characters who will feature in the No Good Comes series and bringing back underused characters from NTSR. If I’d finished drafting the Victorian NTSR stories during NaNoWriMo, I was going to move onto this one. I didn’t even get close.


Infuriated by the sluggish progress and bureaucratic constraints at Heaven’s Fury (AKA Cascade) a group of violent femmes goes rogue.

Chapter leader, Silver Abrecan, a demon of regrettable lineage, took on Raguel Templar, archangel and chief lawmaker at Heaven’s Fury, and lost.

Talked into tossing out the rule book by her knife-smuggling vampire wife, Hazy Lin, Silver teams up with fellow leader, Elspeth Drummond, the world’s only female vaewolf, and Shanti Lawrence, a whirlwind-fast nephilim. Together, they stalk the men who make London unsafe for women at night. Together, they make traffickers cry. And bleed.

Abel Ruskin has been building his empire for decades. He deals in two things: weapons and women. The Furies … they don’t like that. But as fast as they shut down one operation, another springs up in its place. All the while, Ruskin remains elusive, pulling strings from afar. When Ruskin starts targeting young girls, the Furies’ ranks multiply, and a lucky break brings them within spitting distance of Ruskin himself and the secret he’s been harbouring all these years.

When a rescue attempt goes awry, Raguel is ready to throw the book at the rogue team. But there are extra Furies at the gate, ready for battle: Raguel’s own daughter, Yaleni, and her banished mother’s dangerous sibling, Nancy Wilde.
