Grace Linwood has carefully constructed a life for herself as a schoolteacher in the frontier town of Crystal Springs. Archer is from the Bloodhound Guild and is sent to save the town. He arrives just in time to catch Grace trying to run away from the vampires and ghouls that stalk the town. After Archer destroys a vampire nest, he becomes the town hero but really doesn’t want the attention. They form an uneasy alliance to aid the remaining townspeople but are drawn closer together by forces beyond their control. Their investigation reveals more than they’d bargained for, but it might be the only avenue from betrayal to redemption. (SAMHAINPUBLISHING.COM, dl $4.50)
