To those who came by this book by way of Vick's Vultures: Devilbone was my first novel, and was self-edited, self-published, and self-promoted. Please know that it has a few minor problems typically associated with a self-published work, but I am choosing to leave it up with a fair warning because it is still a very enjoyable read that many have enjoyed. -Scott Warren
Book 1 of the Sorcerous Crimes Division
Kaharas is one of the largest free cities on the continent of Varshon, a melting pot of humanoid species traveling, trading, and making a life for themselves. As all large cities, it attracts a substantial amount of crime largely ignored by the city's civil watch. But when the sorcerers of six races come together, sometimes the friction is bound to make things a bit hot. Enter: The Sorcerous Crimes Division. The S.C.D. is an organization of mage-adept constables dedicated to investigating and policing magical crime in the city of Kaharas. They spend their nights chasing rogue wizards, locking away dangerous artifacts, and just making sure citizens don’t wake up with their feet melted off.
In Devilbone, Commander Vulfort struggles with a growing problem of sorcerous contraband within the city that reaches a breaking point when an ancient necromantic reagent called Devilbone Dust, one of 14 forbidden substances, is discovered just outside the city. Meanwhile, Private Tanner has just arrived at the Division and faces the difficulty of adjusting to the dangerous life of a raider and tension within his squad. Together they must find the source of the Devilbone before the dark powers at work use it to destroy the city they are sworn to protect.
