Dream Cast: Mind Games

castingSometimes I find my muses on the catwalk rather than the TV, so I can’t attest to the acting abilities of some of my pics. None the less, if Mind Games were to need a cast, this is who I’d envision.

Series Blurb:

Paranormal creatures have stepped into the light of the human world and with them comes a dark secret. The Syndicate Council controls the mafia families and all organized crime, but there is something worse on the horizon.

The Agency was put in place to police the paranormal mafia for the protection of mankind in a way that human law enforcement isn’t able to. Their missions revolve creating a safe world for both humans and paranormal beings to coexist peacefully, but behind the curtain a more sinister plan is put into place by an ancient radical leader determined to regain his lost power.

Who can stop a demigod hell bent on creating a new empire and crushing those he feels are beneath him?

The paranormal mafia has the answer: The Syndicate.

Despite the façade of crime and corruption, the Syndicate uses the mafia to keep balance in a brutal world torn apart by crime, hatred, segregation, and corruption. Their goal: To take down The Agency at all costs.

Mind Games:

Agency or Syndicate? Most witches are freelance, but being a psychic witch makes Reagan Silas valuable to the Agency’s Protection and Security Division which is home to the Psychic Interrogation Unit. Since the supernatural world made itself known to the humans a few short years ago, the Agency and their mission of helping control the supernatural while protecting the humans, has been her only purpose in life. Untrained in physical magic, Reagan’s talents as a witch are only a benefit in the Mindscape of those she interrogates for the Agency.  Her world is upended when her interrogation of the Alpha of the O’Conner pack goes terribly wrong. When all fingers point to Reagan she is faced with a cold hard truth; she’s alone in this world. Without the Agency what is she?

Liam O’Conner, alpha of his pack, never expected to find himself wanting to protect the woman who tried to use his dead wife against him in his own mind. But after he is injured during her interrogations he gets word of the Agency suspending Reagan, and he makes it his mission to stay close. The person responsible for his injuries during Reagan’s interrogation is still on the loose and Liam knows it’s only a matter of time before this other psychic takes him out. Reagan is his best chance at survival and salvation. Can he make her see what the Agency is really up to? Or will she never get over her past trauma with werewolves to trust him?

Exclusive Excerpt of Code Name: Fox by A.L. Kessler

The elevator doors opened and he stepped out taking her down a long hall and finally into an office room. At the round conference table sat paranormal creatures of all kinds most of them appeared to be human, but the energy in the room raised the hairs on her body.

“Caught our intruder. Someone was fucking stupid enough to leave their login information lying around. When I find out who it was, I will pin them to my table for dinner.” He snarled and threw her on the table.

Skye shrank back, trying to decide what to do. Her mind raced to check her available exits and calculate her chances of getting out and surviving. Six creatures surrounded the table, all the scents mixing to keep her from telling what all was there.

The man at the head of the table grabbed her by the neck. His silver hair caught the lighting in the room. His swirling misty eyes pierced her gaze. “Change back little fox.”

Energy crackled between them, and she cried out as her fox form disappeared and her human one took shape. She panted, trying to catch her breath from the forced shift and clear the pain in her bones and muscles. Had she not been so shocked by the transformation, she would have cried. What the hell was he?

His fingers still dug into her neck, keeping her off the ground. Her toes brushed against the cold tile of the floor. “We have a little Agency spy. Zeek, you caught her, you get to do the interrogation.”

She glanced at the vampire who had caught her. A wicked smirk crossed his face allowing his fangs to peek out from under his lips and his eyes flooded to red. She was in trouble. Big trouble. She had no idea if the Agency would send someone after her or not, or if they’d just let her die at the hands of these monsters.

“It’d be my pleasure, boss.”  He grabbed her hair and yanked her away from the creature holding her. “Come on little fox, trust me, you don’t want to stay in here.”  He forced her out of the room and into the hall.

Humiliation at being dragged through the hallway flooded through her as he dragged her naked body back to the elevator. He slammed his thumb onto the down button and waited. She tried to pull away, but he tightened his grip. “You’re not going anywhere.”

“Let me go; I didn’t get anything. I promise I won’t return.” At this point, she was thinking another career change was needed.

“Oh little fox, it doesn’t work that way. The only way you’re getting out of here is if you give me the information I need, or in a body bag. The choice is yours.”
