Summer Solstice - Jasmine Silvera - Best Served Cold

Jasmine is the author of Death's Dancer and she was kind enough to include a short story, Best Served Cold, in this anthology!

Death's Dancer

Isela Vogel dances on borrowed time: a degenerative hip threatens her successful career bringing the favor of the gods to her patrons. One big job could set her up for life; if it doesn't get her killed. The Necromancer Azrael must harness the power of a god to stop a killer, and that requires a dancer. 

Capricious gods and scheming necromancers are the least of Isela's worries. If she and Azrael fail, it will cost more than her life. If they succeed, she will lose everything she loves. 

And then there's the danger of falling for a Lord of Death.

About Jasmine

Jasmine Silvera lives in the Pacific Northwest with her partner-in-crime and their small, opinionated, human charge. She inherited a love of sci-fi, fantasy, and comic books from her dad, who thought the Hobbit was a perfectly acceptable bedtime story for a ten-year-old. She filled long hours as a volunteer at the church thrift store by reading boxes of donated Harlequins. She's been writing as long as she can remember.

After spending years banging away at the next "great American novel," while working one peculiar day job after another, she took a break to walk the Camino de Santiago and figure out what kind of stories she really wanted to tell. 

At last, she began crafting the kind of stories she enjoyed reading: fantasy set in worlds not entirely unlike our own, with rich worldbuilding and meaningful relationships of all kinds.

She is an incredible author and you should really check out Death's Dancer today!
