The Caelish Order #1
by A. J. Barber
Ever since her brother murdered four of his closest friends, Alicia Omura has been trying to start over. She changed her name, got a new job, did everything she could to make sure no one ever pegged her as Devon Blaine’s sister.
Now she’s a Hunter for the Caelish Order, protecting Seattle from rogue summoners like her brother, and from their Elaiyu servants. But when Devon himself turns up in the middle of her first big case, he turns everything she thought she knew on its head. His story is outlandish–traitors within the Order, corruption at the highest levels. If he’s telling the truth, Alicia has more to worry about than rookie jitters and an inconvenient crush on her partner, Jordan Morrow.
To make matters worse, Jordan doesn’t believe Devon. She’s gone up against rogue summoners before and has a personal vendetta against them all–Devon included. But when the Order deems them all threats that are better off buried at the bottom of the Puget Sound, it becomes a race against the clock to uncover the traitor and their plot before all of Seattle suffers the consequences.
A main character (Karenna) identifies as bi/pan and aromantic on-page in book #3 of the series. Other significant characters have been confirmed by the author as bi/pan (Jordan) and sapphic (Alicia).
