Collected for the first time between these covers, readers can now experience Fiona “Blue” Shaefer’s journey from troubled teen to hopeful young adult and take in the full scope of R.J. Sullivan’s paranormal thrillers. This omnibus includes both novels in her series and a holiday short story that caps off this phase of her young life. The Complete Adventures of Blue Shaefer includes:
Punk, blue-haired teenager “Blue” Shaefer helps “Chip” Farren, classmate and computer nerd, recover the money from an infamous bank heist from their town’s distant past. Their actions unwittingly awaken a vengeful ghost intent on doing anything—including murder–to stop them from exposing its secrets.
The Sisters of Baalina, cultists who practice a new form of “techno-magic,” have targeted Chip’s multi-player videogame as the perfect environment to cast a dangerous spell that will free a demoness from the very pits of hell. In the process, their plan may trap Blue and Chip in a prison of the mind with no locks, no bars, and no escape.
Blue Christmas: A Holiday Short Story
Blue and Chip are enjoying a quiet Christmas Evening together when the mysterious occult detective Rebecca Burton knocks on their door… with a peace offering. Blue decides to hear her out–and hopes she won’t regret it.
“Doesn’t so much smear distinctions between genre boundaries as it does power wash them into oblivion.” –Bram Stoker Award-winner Gary A. Braunbeck
