"The format enables a taster of the author’s style and content, and the individual stories are excellent and stand alone well even without having read the main novels for context. [...]
There is nothing here I would change or improve on. I’m just thrilled to be able to add another writer to my favourites pile; and there are nine full novels in the series (not counting this collection), so that should keep me going for a while! " - Steph, Goodreads

In Tales from Harborsmouth, readers get the chance to delve deeper into the award-winning world of Ivy Granger.
Ivy Granger is a psychic detective with ties to Harborsmouth’s paranormal underworld. Too bad those ties tend to ensnare Ivy and her friend Jinx in the Machiavellian schemes of the city’s teeming population of bloodsucking vampires and psychotic faeries.
It’s hard to pay the bills when you’re dead, but if you die in a city filled with faerie magic and have Ivy Granger on the case, you sure as Hell can settle your debts. —Ivy Granger, Frostbite
A detective’s job is to take note of the little things, the small details that can break a case wide open, but having anthropomorphic snot treat you like you smelled worse than a troll fart could give a girl a complex. —Ivy Granger, Frostbite
There was a serial killer in Harborsmouth with a penchant for murdering faeries. Happy freaking holidays. —Ivy Granger, Blood and Mistletoe
If a faerie, a vampire, and a demon walk into a bar, you wait for the punch line. At Private Eye, when a faerie, a vampire, and a demon walk through the door, it’s just another day at the office. —Ivy Granger, Blood and Mistletoe
I blew a stray lock of hair from my eyes while running a damp cloth over the bar. The raven black curl froze at the edge of my vision, ice crystals from my breath coating it like the dust of fractured diamonds. But within seconds the damp chunk of bangs thawed from the perpetual heat of the club. The heat was one of the many things that I despised about bartending at Club Nexus. —The Ice Faerie Beryl, Club Nexus - Iced
Deviance is nothing if not full of variety and Puck had discovered how to capitalize on each and every one of our desires. In fact, I wouldn’t be surprised if the imp was purposely late to our meetings to build the suspense, and empty my wallet. —The Vampire Cyrus, Club Nexus - Dusted
It had been centuries since a human had piqued my interest, longer still since anyone had stirred feelings of lust and longing, but there was something unquestionably magnetic about the woman my eyes now frantically sought. —Forneus, Club Nexus - Demonized
Of all the nightclubs, in all the cities, in all the world, the freakin’ demon had to walk into Club Nexus. —Jinx, Club Nexus - Jinxed
I’d seen a lot in my nine lives, but nothing so strange as Ratfink’s Family Fun Palace and its tone-deaf taxidermied talent. —Torn, Thrill on Joysen Hill
