Map of Chancey

I created this beat-up, blood-stained, ripped piece of gorgeousness for K. A. Dowling, author of The Changing Tide and The Forbidden City. Evander the Hawk is a liar, a thief, and a murderer, which makes him the one person capable of giving Emerala the Rogue what she wants more than anything–her freedom. When her razor...

Murder on Arlington Avenue

The tavern was grungy to say the least, not exactly the kind of establishment one would expect a celebrated war hero to take his dinner.
