Death Be Blue by Katie Epstein is the first book in the Terra Vane series. This book is set in an alternate world named Portside City that can be accessed from Earth via a magical portal. The main character of the book is Terra Vane who works as a police detective for the PCA (Portside City Agency). It follows Terra’s path as she tries to do her job as the token human working as a PCA agent in Portside. This book is a dark urban fantasy that is full of paranormal creatures that live in their own world but have access to that of regular Earth through a portal. This story is an enthralling ride from start to finish. I couldn’t put it down. I definitely recommend that anyone looking to read a great book.
