There is a mythic city deep in the desert that vanishes into a mirage every time explorers get too close.

All, that is, except an old woman and her eager assistant, who are crossing the desert in their beat-up convertible, hell-bent on chasing down the city of dreams.

Mary Walker is the type of neighbor many of us have, but so few of us want: nosy, confrontational, and a self-appointed deputy of her neighborhood’s affairs. But when an otherworldly visitor moves in across the street, Mary, as unpleasant as she may be, becomes her community’s only line of defense against an insidious, impending threat.

July 17, 2020

Six years ago, a cataclysm that shattered the moon and drowned the world beneath an endless ocean has reduced humanity to a few dozen survivors in a lonely spire, one kept aloft by the stone-manipulating mages known as earthmasons. Dwindling supplies, eroding walls, and tensions between the earthmasons and the Spire's non-magical inhabitants have pushed this last shard of humanity to the brink. But Shona, an earthmason determined to save her family and her home, discovers that the Spire's inhabitants may not be alone.
