Epidemic: An A'lle Chronicles Mystery–Book 2
In the early 1700s, an A'lle generation ship crashed in the woods of Lower Canada. Survivors stumbled out of the wreckage to find French settlers working the land. While many of the colonists sheltered the injured A'lle, some reacted with fear and loathing. Two centuries later, nothing much has changed.
Two months after the events in Backli's Ford, Constance A'lle, first A'lle investigator for Lower Canada, and Chief Investigator Desautel still haven't identified the cabal responsible for the kidnapping and murder of so many A'lle.
While they pursue their investigation in Montreal, Constance is sidetracked by her sister Gemma's arrival in town. The investigation is further hindered by rumours of an epidemic—an epidemic for which the A'lle might be responsible. As the citizens of Montreal deal with their dead and dying, anger grows against the immune A'lle.
When Gemma experiences first hand the simmering resentment against the A'lle, Constance finds herself fighting to keep her sister safe while dealing with attacks intended to kill her.
With A'lle hostility against the humans growing, it's only a question of time before the two clash and the fragile relationship between humans and A'lle shatters.
