Read the review by Darque Reviews

I love the cover! Tough chick, wearing leather on a low, slung bike with a big-ass gun, who could resist that? Yes, book covers can attract me, just like honey attracts a bee. I pre-ordered this book, after I read Kimberly's review (Darque Reviews), a couple of weeks ago. It grabbed me hard and I've been thinking of this book ever since, maybe because I'm reading the Mercy Thompson series right now and Mercy is walker.

A year ago Jane nearly lost her life taking down an entire blood family of deadly rogue vampires that preyed on the helpless local populace of an Appalachian town. Now, after months of recuperation, she’s back and ready to fight again. Except this time, she’s hired by those she’s trained to kill—vampires…

Jane Yellowrock is the last of her kind—a skinwalker of Cherokee descent who can turn into any creature she desires and hunts vampires for a living. Back from hiatus, she’s hired by Katherine Fontaneau, one of the oldest vampires in New Orleans and the madam of Katies’s Ladies, to hunt a powerful rogue vampire who’s killing other vamps.

Amidst a bordello full of real “ladies of the night,” and a hot Cajun biker with a panther tattoo who stirs her carnal desire, Jane must stay focused and complete her mission—or else the next skin she’ll need to save just may be her own…

Hi Michelle G! I can't wait to get this book! I hope it ships early. ;)

Kimberly Swan said...

I do hope you'll like it as much as I did! There's a short story from the same world in the Strange Brew anthology too. :)

Hi Kimberly! I pre-order Strange Brew several days ago, since Charlaine Harris and Patricia Briggs have stories in it. Glad to know Faith Hunter is in it too, triples my happy factor on buying the anthology now. Plus, I'll get both books at the same time since they share the same release date! :)

Hi Dottie! You and me both! After reading the book blurb, seeing the cover and Kimberly's review, I'm sold! Can't wait to get this book.
