Overview
Cassidy Kincaide owns Trifles & Folly, an antique/curio store and high-end pawn shop in Charleston, South Carolina that is more than what it seems. Dangerous magical and supernatural items sometimes find their way into mortal hands or onto the market, and Cassidy is part of a shadowy Alliance of mortals and mages whose job it is to take those deadly curiosities out of circulation.

Welcome to Trifles & Folly, an antique and curio shop with a dark secret. Proprietor Cassidy Kincaide continues a family tradition begun in 1670--acquiring and neutralizing dangerous supernatural items. It's the perfect job for Cassidy, whose psychic gift lets her touch an object and know its history. Together with her business partner Sorren, a 500 year-old vampire and former jewel thief, Cassidy makes it her business to get infernal objects off the market. When mundane antiques suddenly become magically malicious, it's time for Cassidy and Sorren to get rid of these Deadly Curiosities before the bodies start piling up.

When previously non-magical items purchased from Cassidy Kincaide’s antique shop start displaying dangerous powers, Cassidy and her assistant manager, Teag, must investigate before their shop’s specialty in supernatural items becomes public knowledge. Joined by Cassidy’s centuries-old vampiric business partner, Sorren, and local Voudon practitioner Lucinda, the shopkeepers are quickly swept up into a series of mysterious murders and danger much larger than any of the shop’s everyday business. Martin (the Ascendant Kingdoms saga) weaves together fact, fiction, and the supernatural to create a realistic underworld for modern Charleston, S.C. The sense of danger is very real, both in Cassidy’s psychometric visions and during physical attacks, but so is the sense of protection and safety Cassidy’s friends and guardians provide. A few loose threads leave the impression that this is the first of many adventures for Cassidy and her team, and a refreshing lack of interpersonal and sexual drama will appeal to longtime fans of paranormal mysteries.
