About the Story
Damsels Don't Wear Glasses is an action/urban fantasy series set in a city populated by mythical creatures and magic. It follows a tough. dry-humored woman named Lave Faraday, who spends her days investigating and occasionally fighting rogue magic-users and necromancers. After taking down a horde of zombies (slightly unusual for a Monday), Lave is tasked with looking after a 12 year old boy named Jake for reasons no-one will tell her.
The Story so Far
Lave interrupts a group of would-be necromancers, led by a college dropout named Kestrel who somehow got his hands on an ominous green orb. Things start to go wrong when Lave steals the sacrificial goat and begins to snarkily taint the group; much to Kestrels growing annoyance, prompting him to accidentally break the glowing orb. As an explosion of Necrotic power erupts across the graveyard Lave attempts to drag Kestrel to safety, fighting off the horde of zombies in her way.Click to show spoilers
Two weeks after the 'graveyard incident', Lave is summoned by her supervisor Gena and given a new job: taking care of a 12-year-old named Jake. Neither Lave nor Jake is particularly happy with the arrangement, but neither has a choice.Click to show spoilers
A ghastly scene takes place somewhere far away. Meanwhile after being woken by an erratic phone call, Lave uses the Leyline-shortcut to take Jake to a secret pawn shop. There he meets The Clerk who informs Lave they may need help finding a stolen item.Click to show spoilers
