The Purple Door District Series

Coming December 2019: Wolf Pit


Wolf Pit (Book 2)

Blurb: Tess Montgomery isn’t your typical member of the Chicago wolf pack. In fact, she’s not a wolf at all. She’s an adopted fire magus of the pack and thus doesn’t always “play by the rules.” When her father and her best friend Nick are kidnapped in what the parahumans assume is a Hunter operation, Tess’s pack is thrown into turmoil. With Alpha Paytah unable to step outside the bounds of his new position as Violet Marshall of Chicago’s Purple Door District, Tess takes the reins to plan a rescue attempt.

Meanwhile, Nick and his fellow wolves find themselves in a world of battle and bloodshed. The Hunters have set up an illegal fighting pit where the strongest survive and the weakest are traded or killed. It’s all Nick can do to keep up the spirits of his packmates and help them escape. Or survive long enough until they’re rescued.

Unfortunately, Tess’ rescue mission fails spectacularly, leading to her capture. She finds herself the unwilling guest of a local Hunter named Arjun. Handsome, charming, and deadly, Arjun tries to convince Tess that not all Hunters are the enemy.  He even offers to help her find her packmates. But is he true to his word, or does he have his own wicked plans in mind?

Blurb: Bianca was supposed to attend art school in Chicago, not run for her life from Hunters. The only chance she has to survive is to find The Purple Door District, a safe haven for a parahuman like herself. When she stumbles upon a magus named Gladus and a fellow avian named Carlos, she thinks she's found safety. But the Hunters are relentless, as is the dark force driving them.

Vampire, werewolf,avian, magus—

It's up to the parahumans of the Purple Door District of Chicago to put their differences aside to save Bianca and stop a dark threat from destroying their peaceful community. 


In a crowded fantasy market of vampires and werewolves, Casey brings a refreshing perspective in the form of a werebird protagonist, Bianca, who is on the run from paranormal operatives hunting her for her burgeoning, mysterious powers she’s only beginning to realize herself. Yes, vampires and werewolves (and magi and other magical folk) are present in the Purple Door District (PPD) (a code for safehouses for parahumans like Bianca) set in present-day Chicago, but the originality of Casey’s universe resides not only in the relationship between Bianca’s human form and the caracara she can shift into, but in the telepathic communications she has with the other avians and parahumans she (sometimes) co-exists with.
— Amazon Review
The world Casey has built in The Purple Door District is full of interesting, diverse characters that are instantly relatable.
— Amazon Review
For me, the book was so engaging that after I purchased the paperback, signed by the author, I also purchased the digital copy so that I could read it on the go. Author, Erin Casey, discusses having a community as being important to her and through her fiction, she creates a sense of community.
