Hey, look! I finally got back around to my alter ego pen name, A.J. Burnes! In case you missed the first book for that pen name, you should check out The Likeness of the Night (Jonah Lane #1).
Title: The Shape of Terror
Series: Jonah Lane, #2
Fresh off a lengthy recovery after his run-in with a demonic hitman, private eye Jonah Lane gets back into the game: by investigating the strange disappearance of four local college students. But what starts as a simple missing persons case quickly devolves into a nightmare when an encounter with an occult creature results in a public disaster.
Driven by the desire to find out the true cause of the disaster, Jonah goes on the hunt for an unknown occultist. But this occultist turns out to have power and influence beyond anything that Jonah could’ve imagined, and Jonah once again finds himself in the crosshairs of a dangerous showdown between the major occult forces of Haverton, Ohio.
Begrudgingly teaming up with the local OEC team, Jonah places himself on a collision course with an occultist who might be too much for him to handle. If he retreats, however, then gross injustice will win the day. And injustice in the occult world is something that Jonah Lane cannot tolerate.
Even if the pursuit of justice costs him his second chance at life.

After a rather lengthy hiatus due to personal life problems, I have finally completed the ninth novel in the City of Crows series! This book represents an exciting turning point in the series, so I’m super happy that it’s finished!
Title: Night Seeker
Series: City of Crows, #9
Calvin Kinsey has always had terrible luck. But this time, his bad fortune might cost him everything.
In the wake of a successful raid on his mortal enemies, the Children of Enoch, Cal Kinsey unwittingly binds himself to a critically damaged seraph blade. With every minute that passes, the broken blade drains more of his life force. And the only way to stop the blade from devouring him is to destroy it—at the same place it was created.
Accompanied by his mysterious seraph father, Cal must venture deep into the Eververse and overcome dangerous threats in its many strange, unearthly realms. Worse yet, the fallen angels who command the Children of Enoch want the blade so they can use it for their awful ends, and they’ll wreak whatever havoc necessary to steal it back from Cal.
Worlds away from all his friends and everything familiar, Cal will have to fight his way through the most difficult trial of his life. Even if he succeeds, he might be forever changed. But if he fails, he’ll cease to exist altogether.
