    Summary

    Being a Keeper was all Caldera had ever wanted. It wasn't all it was cracked up to be. But it was also all she knew. Few among us can truly defy the way we were taught to live. Alex certainly doesn't make it look easy. But he does make her want to try.

    Diverges from canon toward the end of Burned (Book 7). If you haven't read the Alex Verus books, you're more than welcome--I've tried to write it such that the important info is included. (though, obviously, spoilers be ahead) Credit where credit is due, bolded and italicized lines are dialogue from the books. (with a few minor adjustments)

    Summary

    Suddenly, Alex’s racing thoughts were brought to a halt by the glimpse of an impossible future. No, this couldn’t be real. As if on autopilot he got up from the bed, stumbled into the bathroom and turned the light on, freezing on the spot when he saw his reflection in the mirror. It wasn’t his face staring back at him with an expression of shock. It was Morden’s.

    Alex and Morden accidentally swap bodies and have to work together to reverse it.

    Summary

    Despite everything that has happened, Alex is still fascinated by everything human. Other merfolk always warned him that his unbridled curiosity would eventually be the end of him, and they hadn’t been wrong. But he isn’t a naïve and careless juvenile anymore, his experiences have made him more cautious. Not cautious enough, however, as he will be forced to learn soon…

    Summary

    Alex has so much on his plate. He runs his shop, kind of, actually it's mostly Luna now.
    He works for the Keepers... kind of, he doesn't really go there because they won't give him work anyways.
    He is also Mordens Aide, definetely, all day every day, and he's acutely aware of it.
    Who would have thought getting blackmailed and extorted to work for the very person threatening you would wear on your mental health?

    It would just feel really nice for someone to take care of Alex for once.

    A/N: Writing this I notice how nobody really talks about their thoughts in the books? I’m one communicative bitch so everybody talks more in this.

    Summary

    Squeezed cozily between two buildings sits an old antiquated hotel called Arcane Emporium. It is often overlooked, but every now an again a new guest checks in for the night. However, it is anything but typical. Rumors are that it is home to flickering lights, strange specters, a maze of hallways that watch you, a poltergeist, a giant human sized spider. A haunted house by all definitions.
