Purity isn’t going to give up and die again.
She died the first time in 1958, and the devil stole her soul on her front doorstep.
After more than fifty years in Purgatory, she returns from the underworld. Her brother, who saved her from the devil and handed her to Hades, is supposed to be there to meet her.
But he isn’t. Purity has to find her way in a new, overwhelming world she doesn’t understand. But there is still evil, supernatural evil, in the world, and that she understands all too well.
The devil’s work is never finished and the family business is never done.
Hawkings Austin begins his new urban fantasy series with an original and intriguing first tale. Purity Wellman is a fish-out-of-water, but not because of the magic in her life. That she understands. It’s the real world that’s the problem. Buffy the Vampire Slayer meets Sookie Stackhouse in Purity Wellman, who is trying to find her place in a creepy Appalachian American Gods universe.
Can Purity discover what happened to her brother, and deal with Knoxville’s vampire problem? Or will she end up back in the underworld for good? Read Pure Poison today and find out!

Too Christian for Mainstream Publishing, Too Secular For Christian Publishing.
We occupy the space between both. Life isn't simple or free of trials, so why should fiction be?
We're not a "Christian Publisher". You'll find no limp-wristed, sanitized and boring fiction meant to browbeat readers into conversion.
Harkening back to Lewis, Tolkien, we aren't afraid to express our beliefs in the context of the story while keeping the creativity and wonder of speculative fiction. Faith has real power, in our world and in our books, and ignoring or being condescending about it leaves an entire facet of the human condition on the table.
There is no victory without trial, no dawn without night, and to write without that produces flat and uninspiring stories.
So if you're tired of nihilistic fantasy that revels in the worst of humanity, science fiction without the hope and wonder, adventure stories without heroes, Silver Empire is the publisher for you.
