Magic. Murder. Mayhem.

Dustin Graves was never a fan of human sacrifice. Hell, he was one. A knife in the heart changes a man, but Dust survived, awakening to the eldritch gift of shadow magic.

Then one night, he stumbles upon a nocturnal ritual, a cult ceremony he stops with the help of his sentient sword Vanitas. But there was one small thing the two of them hadn't considered.

What if the girl on the altar was the real danger?

Crystal Brawl is a humorous, horrific urban fantasy adventure set in the Darkling Mage universe, just one of three stories you'll receive as part of the Darkling Mage Starter Library. Sign up below to get the whole book for free.
