New Normal

(The third book in the City of Champions Online series)
A novel by

The storm has passed. A new day begins.

Southern Pride and their allies have been thrown out of Atlanta. The sudden loss of both the Governor and Lieutenant Governor is only the start of the trouble that the defenders of Atlanta will have to deal with as they begin rebuilding and dealing with the aftermath of the old regime. But one cannot just open a gate to the hells (and promptly kick it shut again) without expecting some long-term ramifications. The mystic population of Atlanta has been charged by the recent high magic flow in the area, and those who were once thought to be myths and legends are coming out of the shadows.

But what challenges await a Vampire when her city starts adjusting to the new normal?


The world of CoC is not a happy one, but it is not grimdark, either. It is like the world we live in, but with superheroes and game-like elements, where the ones regarded as heroes aren't always the most heroic amongst us. While the main characters in CoC are not as... extreme as those in my other stories, and at least try to be heroes, there is material some will find disturbing.
