Thirdscribe

Nobody wants to live forever.

Rendered immortal against his will, Edward Smith lashes out by revealing the existence of vampires. But the world of immortals is more intricate than it seems, and everyone who could save New York from a new undead threat becomes stuck dealing with a public relations nightmare instead.

As they try to figure out what it means to be immortal, Smith, Brooks, and the rest of their family must face off with protestors, monsters, and a grey-skinned, aesthetics-obsessed billionaire whose latest invention—The Afterlife™—complicates everything.

The Brooks & Smith series follows paranormal detectives Arturo Brooks and Edward Smith as they become mired in increasingly bizarre adventures. Time Purge is its second standalone story.
