Nell’s News, Gossip and Book Hunt 3/26/17

News and information at One Book Two.  Author cover reveals, author news and upcoming book releases.

This Weeks News:

I would like to extend my heartfelt sympathies to one of my favorite authors, D.B. Reynolds.  She lost her husband on March 17, 2017.   Please, say an extra prayer for Ms. Reynolds.  Sadness is hard to overcome.

New Releases:

Craig Schaefer is one of my top favorite authors.  He is releasing book #3 in the Harmony Black series.  Glass Predator will be released March 28, 2017. I won’t be able to review it for a couple days after, but check back in with me.

Title:  Glass Predator
Description:  For Harmony Black, practicing witch and government agent, defeating criminal masterminds and eliminating supernatural threats are all in a day’s work. She’s ready to fight, as long as she can count on her partner, Jessie Temple; her team at off-the-books special FBI unit Vigilant Lock; and her magic. But her latest case threatens it all.

A high-profile bank robbery reveals thieves with the same unnatural strength and turquoise eyes as Jessie, who was touched by the King of Wolves. Jessie becomes unstable, struggling with her inner Beast, and Harmony’s magic is threatened by unexpected interference. Even worse, the women uncover a secret their own handler may kill to protect, forcing Vigilant Lock to go off the grid.

From the smoky back rooms of Washington, DC, inhabited by the crooked elite, to the astonishing high-rises of corrupt upper-crust Manhattan, Harmony and Jessie fight to uncover and halt a mass conspiracy threatening US soil in a race against time—and hell.

This is a series Ruby Lee got me hooked on a couple of years ago.  I stopped reading because it made me nervous.  The endings weren’t exactly cliffhangers, but they weren’t always happy for the protagonist.  Anyway, Amanda Stevens is releasing #6 in the Graveyard Queen series, The Awakening, on March 28, 2017.  Ruby has promised to tell me what happens so I can start on book #3.  I know, I know.  I’m ridiculous.

Book Description:  Shush…lest she awaken…

My name is Amelia Gray, a cemetery restorer who lives with the dead. An anonymous donor has hired me to restore Woodbine Cemetery, a place where the rich and powerful bury their secrets. Forty years ago, a child disappeared without a trace and now her ghost has awakened, demanding that I find out the truth about her death. Only I know that she was murdered. Only I can bring her killer to justice. But the clues that I follow—a haunting melody and an unnamed baby’s grave—lead me to a series of disturbing suspects.

For generations, The Devlins have been members of Charleston’s elite. John Devlin once turned his back on the traditions and expectations that came with his birthright, but now he has seemingly accepted his rightful place. His family’s secrets make him a questionable ally. When my investigation brings me to the gates of his family’s palatial home, I have to wonder if he is about to become my mortal enemy.

Warrior Unraveled releases March 29, 2017.  This is a crossover between series.  Tina Folsom writes the Scanguard Vampire series (if you haven’t read them, the first one is Samson’s Lovely Mortal and it’s free on Kindle) and she writes the Stealth Guardians series. Wesley, Haven’s brother (see Yvette’s Haven) is kind of a liason between Scanguards and the Stealth Guardians and this is his story.  I have always favored Scanguards Vampires over the Stealth Guardians, but I can’t give a good solid reason. Again, I am ridiculous.

Book Description: Scanguards witch Wesley Montgomery’s attempt at forming an alliance between his group and the elusive Stealth Guardians meets with resistance and suspicion from Virginia Robson, council member for the Guardians. The fiery redhead who gets Wesley’s heart pumping thinks that he was sent by the demons to infiltrate them, a belief that is reinforced when the Stealth Guardians are attacked in their stronghold.
Despite her better judgment, Virginia is drawn to the handsome witch who offers his assistance. But can she trust the stranger of whom she knows nothing, even though his touch and kisses ignite a need in her that she’s never before experienced?

What will prove more difficult for the pair: finding a future together, or battling demons that threaten them at every turn?

Ivana (here’s her review of Bound) got me hooked on the Alex Verus seriesBenedict Jacka releases book #8 on April 4.  Check it out.

TitleBound
AuthorBenedict Jacka
SeriesAlex Verus, Book 08
Publish Date: April 4, 2017 by Ace
Genre: Urban Fantasy

Publisher’s Description: Mage Alex Verus is caught between a rock and a hard place in the eighth urban fantasy novel from the national bestselling author of Burned.

Alex Verus is still haunted by his time apprenticed to Richard Drakh. He’s been free of him for many years, but now the only way to keep his friends from being harmed is to again work for Richard and his deadly ally. Even worse, he’s forced to bring the Light mage Anne into this servitude as well.

After weeks of being hunted and finally cornered into what he thought was his last stand, Alex never thought his life would be spared—and never anticipated at what price. This time, the diviner can see no way out…

Here’s reviews of the others in the series…

Viola Carr is releasing #3 in the Electric Empire series on April 18.  I am so excited because I LOVE this series.  It’s fun, it’s steampunk, it’s Jekyll/Hyde with a spin.  Be sure you have no appointments when you sit down to read this series because you will miss them.  The pages will just fly!

Title:  The Dastardly Miss Lizzie
Book DescriptionDr. Eliza Jekyll must turn to her dark side, Miss Lizzie Hyde, to stop a madman targeting London’s most important scientists and sorcerers terrorizing the city with dark magic in this third Electric Empire novel—a dazzlingly original steampunk fantasy set in the gritty world of alternate Victorian London, with echoes of H G. Wells classic, The Time Machine

Being two people in one body isn’t easy. Metropolitan Police crime scene physician Eliza Jekyll is trying to maintain a semblance of control, even as her rebellious second self, Lizzie, grows increasingly wild—threatening the respectable Eliza’s reputation and her marriage to Remy Lafayette, the Royal Society investigator and occasional lycanthrope. With England on the brink of war, Remy’s away in sorcery-riddled Paris on a secretive mission that grows ever more sinister. Has he been an enemy agent all along? Or is coping with Eliza’s secret divided self finally driving her mad?

Eliza needs her mind clear and sharp if she’s to catch an evil genius who is killing eminent scientists. The chase uncovers a murky world of forbidden books, secret laboratories, and a cabal of fanatical inventors whose work could change the world—or destroy it—and who may hold answers to Eliza’s past.

As sorcery-wielding terrorists attack London, Eliza discovers her own enemies are closing in, driving her to desperate measures—enlisting the aid of the wily, resourceful, mercurial Lizzie—to thwart the killer. But Lizzie’s got her own life now, and true to her nature, will resort to the devious and diabolical to keep it. Even if it means throwing Eliza to the wolves, and letting the world burn. . . .

1B2’s reviews of book 1 & 2:

The last two on my list really need no introduction.  They even probably don’t even need an announcement because everyone already is waiting impatiently for their release.  I would be amiss to leave them out, though, so here is:

Title:  Blade Bound
Author: Chloe Neill
Series: Chicagoland Vampires #13
Release Date: April 25, 2017
Book Description: The thrilling final installment of Chloe Neill’s New York Times bestselling urban fantasy series sees a sinister sorcery advancing across Chicago, and it may usher in the fall of Cadogan House…

Since the night of her brutal attack and unwilling transformation to vampire, Merit’s stood as Sentinel and protector of Chicago’s Cadogan House. She’s saved the Windy City from the forces of darkness time and again with her liege and lover, Ethan Sullivan, by her side.

When the House is infiltrated and Merit is attacked by a vampire seemingly under the sway of dark magic, Merit and Ethan realize the danger is closer than they could have ever imagined. As a malign sorcery spreads throughout the city, Merit must go to war against supernatural powers beyond her comprehension. It’s her last chance to save everything—and everyone—she loves.

Title: Snared
Author: Jennifer Estep
Series: Elemental Assassin #16
Release Date: April 25, 2017
Book Description:  The sixteenth book in the New York Times bestselling Elemental Assassin urban fantasy series that RT Book Reviews calls, “An extraordinary series…[containing] one of the most intriguing heroines in the genre.”

If you don’t know Gin “the Spider” Blanco, you don’t know dangerous female heroines.

Irony 101—The Spider herself snared in someone else’s web…

Another week, another few clues trickling in about the Circle, the mysterious group that supposedly runs the city’s underworld. Gathering intel on my hidden enemies is a painstaking process, but a more immediate mystery has popped up on my radar: a missing girl.

My search for the girl begins on the mean streets of Ashland, but with all the killers and crooks in this city, I’m not holding out much hope that she’s still alive.

A series of clues leads me down an increasingly dark, dangerous path, and I realize that the missing girl is really just the first thread in this web of evil. As an assassin, I’m used to facing down the worst of the worst, but nothing prepares me for this new, terrifying enemy—one who strikes from the shadows and is determined to make me the next victim.

Nell’s Gossip and Sunday Book Hunt 3/19/17

Sunday Book Gossip! I love gossip and what gossip is any better than book or author gossip? Normally, I’m not one to spread rumors, so be sure you listen close the first time.

This Weeks Gossip:

Exciting news on the Jenn Stark Immortal Vegas series front.  Wilde Child has a release date of May 17, 2017!  Yay!  If you like action/adventure with magic and a bit of romance/tension added in, this is the series for you.  I totally love it.  Here’s reviews from the previous additions to the series.

 

Fans of Kevin Hearne…PAY ATTENTION!  Oberon is going to release his sequel to the Purloined Poodle.  It will be called The Squirrel on the Train.  It’s #2 in the Oberon’s Meaty Mysteries series.  Purloined Poodle is a tale from the view point of Atticus’s best canine friend, Oberon.  Check out 1B2’s review and check back for the release date when I finally hear it.

 

Got a note from another fave author this week.  Lisa Shearin, author of SPI Files and the Raine Benares series says:

Ruins & Revenge: I finished writing Ruins & Revenge last Friday. It’s in editing now (content, then copy editing, then production), and will be released on May 2. I’ll let you know as soon as it’s available for preorder.

The Ghoul Vendetta audio book: My agent contacted Audible, and they said The Ghoul Vendetta is in production. As to a release date, they said “less than three months.” As soon as I know something more definite, I’ll let you know.

New paranormal thriller series: While I wait for the content edits to come back on Ruins & Revenge, I’m plotting a brand new paranormal thriller series. It’s gonna be so freakin’ cool!

Three books a year/three series: Before anyone freaks out that the new series will bump any of your favs, rest assured that my three-books-a-year writing schedule will include one book each from Raine Benares, a SPI Files, and the new thriller series.

Next book I’ll be writing: I may be plotting a new series now, but the next book I’ll write will be another SPI Files, *then* I’ll do the first book in the new series. I want to allow enough time for the new cast of characters to come together in my head.

 

 

I’ve found a new series that I’m interested in.  Actually, a couple – so let me share.

Title: Mark of Cain
Series: Immortal Mercenary #1
Author: Conner Kressley
Description: My name isn’t Callum Coldwell but, for your own sake, you should probably call me that.

They say someone is murdered every minute…and I’m the reason why.

When I killed my brother, the Big Guy burned a mark into my skin and set me to wandering until the end of time. That was a while ago, and I think I’ve used my forever pretty well. Bagged a few women, saved a few lives, and gotten myself into and out of more trouble than I care to remember.

But something’s happening now. Evil forces are circling the wagons, and something sinister is getting ready to make a play for the big time. And, of course, it has me in its crosshairs.

When I said I wasn’t my brother’s keeper, I had no idea how wrong I was.

By now you’ve probably figured out my name. But don’t say it.

Bad things happen when people say my name.

AND

Title: Calling All Angels
Author: John G. Hartness
Series: Shadow Council Files #1
Description:  They are humanity’s defense against the supernatural. They are the light in the darkness. They are the guardians that walk in the night. They are The Shadow Council.

Joanna Harrison is a freelance editor, working mother, and loving daughter. She is also the great-granddaughter or legendary steel driving man John Henry, and she has taken up his hammer to fight against the monsters that threaten her family and her world. She is Jo Henry, and she packs one hell of a punch.

Jo is fighting like the devil, looking for an angel. She’s on a mission to find the Archangel Michael, give him back his hold sword, and bring his memories back. But first she has to stay alive. Through underground cage fights and demon hunts in the desert, Jo will need all the help she can get to wake up the angel. And when a demon kidnaps her mother and daughter, it’s time to come out swinging.

 

I went to Book Expo America last year in May.  It was AWESOME! If there is a chance to go again, I’m all over it.  This year it’s in the Big Apple.  I know there will be tons more publishers and authors that I would love to meet, but it’s in NYC.  The major drawback is having to ship all the free books home.  Luckily last year I had a car to pack full, so it wasn’t an issue. I’m thinking it’d be a huge issue in NYC.  I’m also thinking it’s going to be 25 times more busy.  This year it’s from May 31 – June 2, 2017.  Any authors out there need a roadie?

Blood Deal by Brad Magnarella

How can one man find so much trouble? It’s not even when he’s looking for it?  Professor Croft gets pounded, spelled, glamoured, beat on and even has the blood sucked from his own body – with his permission! Talk about a glutton for punishment.

Title: Blood Deal
Author: Brad Magnarella
Series: Professor Croft #2
Publish Date: October 17, 2016
Genre: Urban Fantasy
Narrator: James Patrick Cronin
Source: Purchased through Audible.com

Publisher’s Description: Everson Croft here, professor of mythology and … nervous as sin.

Tonight’s the night I tell Caroline the truth: about my feelings, my magic, everything.

So why am I surprised when Detective Vega calls me to a new case? An elusive creature is chewing up residents in a housing project run by rival gangs. One more mangled body and the place will explode into warfare.

Problem is, someone’s protecting the killer. All signs point to the vampire Arnaud—who’s just upped the stakes. If I don’t send Detective Vega down a trail of bad leads, he’ll snatch her child. But is Arnaud trying to derail the investigation or twist it to his own ends, ones that could reshape the city?

Worse, Caroline has disappeared, and I’m under suspicion. No one believes I last saw her with Angelus, a mysterious hunk and full-blooded faerie. Dangerous no matter how you slice it.

Two cases: one personal, one professional, and both going to hell in a hurry.

Time to wizard up.

Nervous Nellie’s nervousness necessitates knowledge of the novel. In other words…spoilers.  *BEWARE*


Nervous Nellie says…

This is an urban fantasy, no sex, lots of violence that comes in various forms and though the ending is good, I believe it will be a very dangerous step for our beloved professor to take.  ALSO, I want to warn those nervous readers like me, Everson’s relationship with Vega is very rocky.  I have all the faith in the world that Author Magnarella will make everything right again.  If he doesn’t then….well…us readers will just have to set him straight. 😉

I will admit that I was drawn to the fact that Everson Croft reminds me of Indiana Jones and Harry Dresden wrapped all up in one.  I mean, really? Who could refuse that face? Check out the cover – it’s fantastic.  Anyway, Everson thinks his life is quiet for the moment and wham! he is pulled into not one, but two separate investigations.

**SPOILERS AHEAD**  I want to say that Everson was trying to be a good guy and Vega took his actions way to the extreme end of the reactionary spectrum.  I learned that Vega’s nickname or maybe even real first name is “Ricky”.  I learned she grew up in a neighborhood that was not known for it’s white picket fences and block parties.  I also learned that she is one tough broad.  She takes a gut shot and she powers her way through it enough to tell Everson how to stitch her up.  Incredible.  I also learned that if she trashes this relationship with Everson, she is making a huge mistake.  It feels like he’s the only one that will back her up and help solve the murders that no one else can touch.  Also, I think Caroline is very selfish to put Everson in the difficult spots that she is putting him in.  She could have at least checked in with him to tell him – “Hey, I know I left the party before you got back, but I wanted to touch base with you.”  That would be the considerate thing to do.  Anyway, it is what it is and that’s why it makes for a good story.  Oh, and one last thing.  Everson should have took the ring option instead of the information about his mother.  He just should have.***END OF SPOILERS***

This series is great to read but even better to listen to.  The narrator does a very good job and he fits my image of the voice for Everson Croft.  Grab the book or the audio – you won’t be sorry.  Oh, and for those of you up to book #3, like me, Mr. Magnarella assures me that the audio will be out by the first week in April and book #4 will release in print and audio closely to the same time together.

Our reviews in this series…

Other recommendations…

…you might try  Yancy Lazarus series by James A. Hunter, Cisco Suarez/Black Magic Outlaw series by Domino Finn or Immortal Vegas series by Jenn Stark.

Hell Night by Matt Kincade

What a fun book! Zombies! Running for your life! Necromancers! Oh my! I enjoyed my introduction to Alex Rains, Vampire Killer, even if there were no vampires in sight!

I received an ARC or review copy of this book from the author/publisher. All opinions are my own.

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000039_00021]TitleHell Night
AuthorMatt Kincade
Series: Alex Rains, Vampire Hunter, Book 02
Publish DatePrint – March 15 | Kindle – March 21
Genre: Urban Fantasy
Cover: J. Caleb Design
Source: Provided by the author

Publisher’s Description: Alex Rains knows all about hunting vampires—after all, that’s his job, and he’s the best at what he does. But when he follows a lead to the tiny desert town of Prosperity, Nevada, Alex quickly learns that vampires aren’t the only things that go bump in the night. He’s just as surprised as the town’s residents when the dead start walking the streets of Prosperity . . . and they’ve got a bit of an appetite.

Together with a ragtag group of survivors, Alex will have to dodge undead horrors and small-town drama as he digs into Prosperity’s darkest secrets and macabre Wild West heritage to figure out why the dead aren’t staying dead, discover what–or who–is responsible, and put a stop to it . . . before the whole mess gets out of hand.

After dealing with the undead in Prosperity, Alex Rains is going to have to update his resume.

It’s sunny with a chance of apocalypse in Hell Night, Matt Kincade’s eagerly anticipated follow-up to The Devil’s Mouth. With Hell Night, Kincade once again delivers fast-paced, gritty pulp action, engaging characters, and delightfully grim humor.

Possible spoilers beyond this point.


Percy_Procrastinator_100Percy Procrastinator says…

Even though this is book two of Alex’s story, and I don’t prefer to read books out of order, this was still a great introduction to Alex. Alex obviously just had a big adventure, perhaps book one, and is looking to take a break. Quite quickly, I learn Alex is a fan of the 50s, especially of Elvis, and wants to go sight seeing to a place where the King himself visited.

Enter Prosperity.

It’s got all the standard tropes of a dying town. The main business closed down and recently even the national park that it had is closed. The residents know they will have to leave but haven’t been able to do so just yet. Alex comes to town to find out where Elvis was and perhaps flirt with the cute waitress at the diner.

Then the body is found. And gets up and walks again. In a well-handled twist, Alex goes from suspect number one to hero number one as the zombies arrive in Prosperity. The rag-tag group of survivors has to find a way to get across town without being eaten alive. Most make it.

Soon, Alex finds himself trapped in a building, holding off zombies while trying to save as many survivors as he can. And Alex is a vampire slayer, not zombie slayer. He doesn’t really know much about them other than finding that the zombies can be killed permanently and he’s good at that.

Alex has realized that these are not typical zombies. They ambush. They concentrate their attacks at weak points. They even let a few of the group survive. Whoever is controlling them wants something from the group. Alex also knows that when that happens, they won’t be needed anymore.

badge5v5All of this leads up to a fun ending that had me reading as fast as I could. I really enjoyed meeting Alex and Prosperity’s people. The bad guys motive made as much sense as an insane person can. And Prosperity’s history and hidden secrets were all so much fun to read! I’m glad I have a book one I can read and look forward to more. This was a solid five for me.

 

Nervous Nellie says…

Damn, that was good!  I bought this book because it was recommended.  If I would have known it involved zombies, I probably would have declined spending the whole 99 cents.  Zombies are not my thing.

This is an urban fantasy – not apocalyptic, so don’t panic.  There is a tiny bit of sex – not enough to make me blush BUT it’s definitely not sweet either.  There is a zillion bloody scenes – gore, splatter and grossness.  It’s “ew” factor was pretty high, but the quotes in this book nearly broke an all time record.  If I put in this review every quote I highlighted, I could fill a chapter alone.

Alex Rains is a vampire hunter that is refreshing in the fact that he doesn’t know anything else supernatural other than vampires.  He didn’t even know zombies existed until he stumbled into a little offbeat town called Prosperity.  The super villain in this book was pretty easy to see right off, but that’s not the point of the book.  The point of the story was the same goal as all of the evil villains we’ve ever read with the twist of the machinations of an even more evil villain.  That’s the part that set this book apart.

Matt Kincade is a brand new author to me – like I said – recommended.  I enjoyed this book a lot and I’m looking forward to the next one.  I would say that this book is better than the first, so I can’t imagine how blown away I will be with the next.  Oh, and by the way, for those of you that may have read my review of The Devil’s Mouth?  No, Carmen isn’t in this book.  I said I’d hunt down the author for not including her, but this story was so good, I’ll give him a pass this time.  😉

Nell’s Gossip & Book Hunt 3/12/2017

Welcome to One Book Two. I love gossip and what gossip is any better than book or author gossip? Normally, I’m not one to spread rumors, so be sure you listen close the first time.

This Weeks Gossip:

*Top of the list for today’s gossip is the fact that Steve McHugh, author of the Hellequin Chronicles has signed a 3 book deal with 47 North.  That means we’ll still get to enjoy Steve’s fantastic writing but it sounds like it’s possible that Nathan is growing more powerful.  Maybe in these next three books we’ll see the Hellequin fall away and Nathan become something totally different.  I don’t know.  All I know is that Scorched Shadows is the last book in the Hellequin Chronicles & the new series is a tie in with Hellequin Chronicles.  No release date yet of Scorched Shadows, but when I hear it, I’ll let you know.  Oh, and just so you know, Crimes Against Magic has now sold over 100,000 copies.  Is that not AWESOME?!!

 

*We, here at One Book Two, are all a fan of Jennifer Estep’s Elemental Assassin series.  Nice Guys Bite is a novella featuring Silvio Sanchez, Gin’s assistant.  This book will only be released as an ebook and audio book.  No “real” printed pages on paper for #15.5.

Title:  Nice Guys Bite
Author: Jennifer Estep
Series: Elemental Assassin #15.5
Released: December 12, 2016
DescriptionThe Elemental Assassin urban fantasy series continues with a novella starring Silvio Sanchez, the vampire assistant of Gin Blanco, as he goes on a holiday date that turns out to be more deadly than romantic.

Working for Gin Blanco (aka the Spider, the assassin who runs the Ashland underworld) doesn’t leave much time for romance, especially with Gin’s holiday party planning in full swing. But when he catches the eye of a charming gentleman, Silvio finds himself going out for coffee.

All’s fair in love and war, though. Just as Silvio is starting to enjoy himself, he realizes he’s being watched. His nice guy date doesn’t sense the danger, and Silvio wants to keep it that way (and, well, keep the guy alive) so Silvio ends the date early—only to be abducted by some villainous giants.

Will Silvio survive the night and make it back to the Pork Pit in time for Gin’s holiday party? Only if he decks the hall with bodies…

 

*Seriously, this is an awesome series.  I kept putting off reading it because I knew it would pull me in and I wouldn’t surface until it was finished.  I was right.  My review of book #1, The Devil’s Mouth, is below Ivana’s on this post.

I finished just in time because Hell Night, Alex Rains, Vampire Hunter #2, will be released March 21, 2017.  Woot!

*Sonya Bateman, author of The Deathspeaker Codex, released a new series that looks very interesting.  Check it out.

Title:  In the Shadow of Dragons
Author:  Sonya Bateman
Series: Aftermagic #1
Released: March 10, 2017
DescriptionA Knight who’s losing faith, a doctor who’s losing hope, and a rebel who’s losing the war may be the world’s last chance for survival.

Six years after dragons came to the earth, the magic they left behind has become an insidious infection, gradually turning people into elves, goblins, dwarves, trolls … and worse. A drug called HeMo, produced by the powerful Bishop Corporation, slows this process. But once a year, a worldwide Eclipse and an intense surge of magic puts everyone at risk for Changing completely — with deadly results.

Teague Harlow is a Knight, one of an elite team employed by BiCo to protect the people from themselves. Only the Knights are permitted to use magic, to slay the monsters that used to be people — but not everyone believes in BiCo’s vision of order. The Darkspawn, a small group of magic-using rebels, fight to destroy HeMo and allow magic to take hold naturally. For better or worse.

When Teague is sent to join the Darkspawn as a spy, she begins to realize the conflict isn’t as straightforward as it seems … and BiCo may not be the heroes the world believes. Because HeMo isn’t curing people. It’s changing them.

And what it’s doing could be far worse than infecting them with magic.

*TA-DAAAA!  New cover reveal for Soulwood #3, the series from Faith Hunter.  Isn’t it gorgeous?!!

Title:  Flame in the Dark
Author: Faith Hunter
SeriesSoulwood #3
To be released: December 5, 2017
Description Nell Ingram has always known she was different. Since she was a child, she’s been able to feel and channel ancient powers from deep within the earth. When she met Jane Yellowrock, her entire life changed, and she was recruited into PsyLED—the Homeland Security division that polices paranormals. But now her newly formed unit is about to take on its toughest case yet.

A powerful senator barely survives an assassination attempt that leaves many others dead—and the house he was visiting burns to the ground. Invisible to security cameras, the assassin literally disappears, and Nell’s team is called in. As they track a killer they know is more—or less—than human, they unravel a web of dark intrigue and malevolent motives that tests them to their limits and beyond.
