Never promise a life that isn’t yours to give.
New York City is decked out for the holidays, and Special Agent Patrick Collins is looking forward to a reunion with his old team when he gets assigned a new case. A human child is missing, and the changeling left in her place causes a prominent witch family to demand justice from the fae.
Meanwhile, continued harassment from the New York City god pack forces Jonothon de Vere to formally establish his own with Patrick. Doing so will mean a civil war within the werecreature community—a war they risk losing from the start without alliances. Making bargains with the fae is never wise, but Patrick and Jono have nothing to lose when a fae lord comes asking for their help.
The Summer Lady has been kidnapped from the Seelie Court, and if they can find her, Patrick and Jono will cement an alliance with the fae. But the clues to her disappearance are found in Tír na nÓg, and the Otherworld has never been kind to mortals.
Venturing past the veil, Patrick and Jono risk losing territory, time, and their very lives while searching for answers. Because the Queen of Air and Darkness knows they are coming—and the ruler of the Unseelie Court has an offer for them they can’t possibly refuse.
A Crown of Iron & Silver is a 107k word m/m urban fantasy with a gay romantic subplot and a HFN ending. It is a direct sequel to All Souls Near & Nigh. Reading the prior books in the series would be helpful in enjoying this one.

“You helped that undead fucker take over a Night Court?”
Gerard twisted around in the front passenger seat so he could glare at where Patrick sat in the back of the Mustang with Keith. Jono glanced at Patrick in the rearview mirror, the other man having crossed his arms defensively over his chest.
“I didn’t have a choice, okay?” Patrick said.
“There is always a choice with that asshole—you shoot him in the heart and cut off his head, or you set him on fire.”
Jono nodded agreement. “Yeah, mate. What Gerard said.”
Patrick glared at him. “I don’t know why I thought you two meeting would be a good idea.”
“Why? Because we won’t let you sod off and do something stupid?”
“We’re already doing something stupid by asking Lucien for help. I’m going to need a shower afterward to feel better about myself,” Keith said.
“I thought you lot fought with him in the Thirty-Day War?”
“Yeah, but that doesn’t mean we had to like it.”
“Lucien’s Night Court was an ally during the Thirty-Day War that everyone likes to forget about. Being an ally doesn’t mean we liked working with the asshole. The undead can’t feed off the dead, and that’s all the food they’d have left if the Dominion Sect succeeded in releasing the hells into our world. Demons don’t make good meals, so the mother of all vampires told her children to fight with us,” Patrick said.
Jono took a breath but couldn’t get a read on Patrick’s scent. He knew Ashanti was a sore subject for the other man, and Patrick’s guilt over her death had never left him.
“It’d be nice if the dead stayed dead,” Keith said wistfully.
“If that were the case, I might actually get a vacation.”
