Title: Valley Fever

Author: C J Bahr

Genre: Supernatural Suspense

Book Blurb:

A devastating earthquake that rocked Southern California turns Jill Cassidy’s life upside down, but the quake is nothing compared to what looms on the horizon. Armed with determination and an incomplete graduate degree in geology, Jill embarks on a dangerous journey through a world of the Fae and monsters she had no idea existed.

Fae-prince Alden watched in horror as one of his own people released the Kolgardi, a hive intelligent race of monsters. Now the ancient evil roams free, feeding on humans and gaining in strength. Despite a judgment laid against him for a crime Alden didn’t commit, he is willing to risk execution to right the wrong and stop what awaits humanity.

Together, with a cynical reporter, Thomas Rainer, the unlikely trio stands together, determined to stop the Kolgardi. Can they save mankind from extinction?


Silent as mist, they began to emerge. The ground appeared to move, coming alive, as if it had liquefied. A new ocean formed, waves rippling in all directions. Shapeless, bodiless, the black entities oozed up out of the crack. An aftershock rumbled deep in the earth and the fissure gaped larger, allowing more of the creatures access to the night’s air. In the glittering starlight, the valley filled with a lifeform the Earth hadn’t seen in thousands of years.

Kyran smiled as he watched. The creatures paid him no attention as he stood high upon the cliff. They quickly outgrew the small clearing below.

“Go,” he willed. “Go and feed.”

The dark swirling mass drifted toward the unsuspecting city, even as more creatures continued to issue forth.

Kyran turned and walked away, leaving the ravine and its nightmares behind. Smiling to himself, pleased with his night’s work, he knew humanity had reached its end. The time of the Fae had arrived.
