Genre: urban fantasy
Publication date: November 21, 2022

Keep calm and call an exorcist.

Most people don’t believe in the supernatural—at least until a ghost starts making the walls in their house bleed. That’s when they call Bea Romo Reyes. She’s my best friend and roommate, and she works as a freelance exorcist and paranormal consultant. Meeting her plunged me into a supernatural world both wonderful and terrifying, and I wouldn’t trade it for anything.

But there’s something Bea’s not telling me, and her secret might be more dangerous than the demons she’s hired to exorcise.

Smoke and Hellfire contains four episodic, novelette-length stories:

The Scent of Brimstone

When my friend dies mysteriously and her house stinks of brimstone, I know a demon is to blame. And when it threatens my friend’s family, I do the only thing I can think of: I call a professional exorcist.

An Unfair Bargain

Bea and I investigate a missing woman who wandered into the forest at night like she was possessed. But the truth of what happened is—if possible—even worse than demonic possession, and we might not make it out of the forest alive.

Drowning, Drowning

A ghost tour in St. Augustine accidentally raises a vengeful spirit who starts picking off the tour group one by one. Can Bea banish the ghost in time to save the young tour guides from a watery grave?

The Corporate Job

I always knew corporations were evil, but this one takes it a step further when they summon a demon to increase their profit margins. With a possessed CFO chained up in the basement and Bea’s exorcism failing, the demon reveals a sinister secret that could change everything.

Deadly Sweethearts

Minnie Kim: Vampire Girl Book 2

 

My boyfriend’s ex-girlfriend came to town, and crazy doesn’t even begin to describe her.

Try seditious. Malicious. Murderous.

Except it’s me that gets pinned for the rash of murders in town while Hashiki’s out there making moves on my boyfriend.

With the help of a trio of far-too-sexy tiny faeries (oh yeah, faeries are real, people) I might stand a chance—if I can survive the attention of an old viking vampire who thinks we’re the next vamp power couple.

But seriously? He’s got the wrong girl. Sure, I’ve got big dreams, but that isn’t one of them.

And right now, I just want Philo back.

Seoul Demon

Minnie Kim: Vampire Girl Book 3

 

Just because I’m undead, doesn’t mean I’m suddenly a ghost whisperer.

But if it’ll convince my dad I’m still me, I’ll go to Korea and do my best. I’d do anything for him to love me again, even if it means trying to convince my ancestors to quit haunting us.

And the task turns out to be as impossible as I feared—until the imugi hiding in my auntie’s garden offers me a deal. He’ll help put the ghosties to rest, if I help him become a real dragon.

It could have been fun. It should have been fun.

But when it costs me every person I love, even winning feels like losing.

Blood Moon

Minnie Kim: Vampire Girl Book 4

 

When times get tough, get a dog. Werewolves, optional.

When the starving mutt showed up in my backyard, I thought he’d be the perfect distraction from the sorrow that’s plagued me all summer.

But Cheveyo’s no ordinary dog and the more I help him uncover where he came from, the more we learn about the dark side of the supernatural world.

A world that I just outed in a viral video.

I always thought it would be cool to be famous, but this is definitely not what I had in mind.

Den of Death

Minnie Kim: Vampire Girl Book 5

 

What would you do to save the one you love?

I’ll do whatever it takes.

Including doing the most un-Minnie thing ever–flying off to Rome without a single clue what the heck I’m doing.All I know is I have to find the Master and rescue Philo.

Not exactly a recipe for success.

I might be small; I might be young; and I might not know much about what it means to be a vampire, but I’m not going to give Philo up without a fight.

I just hope it’s enough.

Grab the exciting conclusion to the Vampire Girl series today!

Ali Archer is the USA Today bestselling author of young adult fantasy and science fiction, including the Desolation series and the Minnie Kim: Vampire Girl series. Ali’s always loved science fiction and fantasy, as the first books she read were by such greats as Isaac Asimov, Ray Bradbury, and Lloyd Alexander. But when she discovered *Dragonriders of Pern* by Anne McCaffrey, which was such a perfect blend of fantasy and science fiction, her own imagination was set aflame. At eleven, Ali met Ms. McCaffrey in one of the single most illuminating moments of her life. When she told the eminent writer she wanted to be an author when she grew up, Ms. McCaffrey said, “Never let anything stand in the way of your dreams.” Ali’s been following that advice ever since.

Ali’s a Canadian expat living in Utah with her husband, twin sons, two adorable yorkies, and an ancient cat who rules them all.
