Tales of the Underlight

How Beauty Met the Beast, by Jax Garren

"A fresh and innovative spin on the Beauty and the Beast tale, with a gutsy heroine and a dark yet honorable hero who you'll love to root for. I can't wait to see what Garren comes up with next!" ~ Kristen Callihan, author of Firelight.

Fairy tale retellings set in the punk-alternative community of Austin, Texas in the very near future. They center around two warring secret societies. Our heroes are a part of the Underlight, a US-based network of anarchists who have an underground base in Austin. The antagonists of the series are from the Order of Ananke, a cult dedicated to the Greek goddess of fate. Ananke pulls its membership from the world’s wealthy and powerful and focuses on controlling society from behind the scenes. A little bit of magic, a little bit of weird science, fast-paced action and steamy romance.
