I have less than a month before Shifting Chaos, the final installment of The Sleepless City, is released. Release day is October 10 which is a special date for two of the characters. It's the birthday of one character and the date another was changed into a vampire. The two events happened centuries apart.
This little bit is from one of my favorite scenes and shows the lighthearted side of these characters. Declan is a professional thief and he's teaching Blair some new pick-pocketing skills. Poor Forge becomes their unwilling target.
“I’m on an administrative leave,” Forge objected, “not banished from the kingdom. I can go there whenever I want to. I’m not locked out of cases, but I do have to take a forced vacation. Eat right, sleep in, see the department shrink, no crime scene interviews. I still have my badge.” When he put one hand on his belt, Forge closed his eyes and pressed his lips together for a few seconds, then ground out, “Give me my badge back.” Declan handed it over, and Forge patted his back pocket. “Wallet.” Grinning, Declan placed that in Forge’s hand. “Couldn’t get my phone, eh?” He reached for the pocket on the inside of his jacket and growled.
“I don’t have your phone,” Declan said. “But here’s your flash drive.”
Forge turned when he heard Blair tap his fingers against the table. He was holding Forge’s phone.
