True Grime by Natasha Deen On Tour October-November 2011

True Grime On Tour October 8th through November 8th 2011

Book Details:

Synopsis:
Grime cop and teen fairy Pepper Powder lives for one thing: protecting the human species from magical zealots who seek to eradicate them with Violent Illness of Unusual Resistance and Strength (humans call them “viruses,” but their mistake is understandable. The very young often get their words wrong.). When a terrorist leader releases a necrophage bomb, it not only decimates Grime headquarters, it turns Pepper into the magical world’s first fairy amputee—but she’s not going to let a little thing like a missing leg stop her. To catch her criminal, and prevent him from unleashing a VIURS in one of the human world’s biggest shopping centers, West Edmonton Mall, she goes undercover as a human. But once Pepper’s theories of humanity collide with the reality of bullies, cliques, and environmental destruction, will she still believe humanity’s worth saving?


Excerpt:

The necrophage viruses were in a refrigerated unit by the closet. I walked over, opened the door. Fog and cloud escaped with a hiss. I saw the tubes, full of purple liquid. I snapped on a pair of gloves and un-holstered the bullets from my hip. Taking a tube, I dipped each bullet in the virus.

Harley would never have done something like this. Harley would never allow me to do something like this. But Harley wasn’t here. I blew on each bullet, dried the virus. Then I put them back in their case. I told myself if I shot any terrorists with the bullets, I wasn’t condemning them to death. I’d seen the studies. They had a chance to live.

But the truth was, I was too angry and scared to care. Part of me wanted to kill, to maim them for what they’d done to me and Harley, and what they were planning to do to the humans. Maybe resorting to this level of violence meant I had dropped to their levels, become the very monster I fought against. Or maybe it meant I was finally playing by their rules and stepping into the game the way it was meant to be played.

Frankly, I didn’t care. I had one mission: get my partner back, no matter the cost. I snapped my gun into place and left the room.


Author Bio:
When I was little, there was only one thing I wanted to be: a superhero. But there came a day when my dreams were broken, and that was the day I realized that being a klutz was not, in fact, a super power, and my super weakness for anything bright and shiny meant a magpie with self-control could easily defeat me in a battle of wills. I turned to writing as a way to sharpen my mental super-hero skills. I don’t get to orbit the earth in a space station (and thank God, because I get sick on merry go round), but I do get to say things like: “Stand aside! This is a job for Writing Girl!!”
