Earth’s Lament is a serial that is both fantasy and science fiction. I love it when an author defies convention and writes the way they want not the way tradition demands.
Old Earth and the one with all of the fantasy creatures are somehow conjoined through an inter-dimensional bridge. This joining of the two earths has created a unit called Mirth.
The people from old Earth seem to have willingly had their memories replaced – except for a few rebellious humans like Jazz.
Jazz is a Monster Collector. It would be unfair to say that she does her job on her own. Her helper is a demon she calls Ship because a demon possesses her ship. Without Ship, Jazz would be toast – burned at that in this short story called Crash Down.
When Jazz utters these words:
“Besides, what could be more boring, self-effacing, and eventless than tracking a lost dog for one of the Welmont elite?”
you know something is bound to happen. Guaranteed!
Off Jazz and Ship go on a tail chasing, ship shooting, dragon, and pirate filled adventure.
