A free story set in the same world as Dead Man and the Restless Spirits, this is about one of the cases that Denton and Bran work on together. It focused mostly on the case instead of on the characters or their relationship. Unfortunately, I didn’t find the case interesting enough to hold my attention.
Denton is a necromancer and his boyfriend Bran is a witch. It’s not as exciting as it sounds. They don’t even get to dress the part, unless it’s New Year’s Eve and they’ve been invited to a costume party. Denton is happy to let his hair down, but coaxing the reclusive Bran out of his shell is hard enough without a demonic spirit crashing the party.
Convincing the spirit to return whence it came from will call on Denton’s special skills, but not in necromancy.
