The Phantom Universe is a collection of companion book series. Each title represents a single day in the lives of interconnected characters; some are friends or co-workers, others are lovers, but most are family.
Throughout this saga, each day leads into the next and the lives of the characters will crossover and interact creating what the author hopes will be a rich and vibrate world. A world where humanity’s future unknowingly relies on early Victorian era steam-powered technologies to protect humanity from a wide range of unseen mythological creatures, and man's own self-destructive nature.
Phantoms exist. They have existed since before the dawn of man. Unseen parasitic constructs created for the sole purpose of distorting our perceptions, clouding our minds, influencing our decisions, and compelling mankind to destroy itself.
Fortunately, a secret organization fights for humanity’s survival. Members of The Phantom Service wage war on our behalf, crossing over to the Etheric Plane; a realm beyond human perception, a place where the laws of physics are different and deadly.
Limited to Victorian-era technology, members of The Phantom Service, utilize airships, copper-clad insect-inspired craft, wingsuits, spectrum shifting goggles, and plasma based weapons to battle mythological creatures, sin infecting shrouds, killer clouds of mist, and things that inspire nightmares.
That’s the good news; the bad news is the tide has turned, and the Phantoms are winning again.
What do a mermaid, a fire-walker, and someone who can see the future all have in common? They all work behind the scenes at Locke and Keye Studios, trying to save humanity from an unseen enemy, and from man’s own self-destructive nature.

She feels a strange kinship and attraction to the Smith family’s new housekeeper, Leah, a woman haunted by her past, desperately trying to keep her family together by any means necessary.
They are all destined to become Phantom Guardians.
