After her career goes up in flames, former investigative reporter Susan Michaels is forced to work for an old friend at a tabloid rag. Sent to check out a wild story about vampires, Susan is coerced into taking home a cat from the local animal shelter despite her bad allergies. To Susan's immense shock, the minute she takes the collar off her new kitty, he turns into handsome and cranky man. Within a few hours, Susan's life turns into a horror movie when her friends are murdered, she is attacked by vampires and her cat turns out to be an immortal vampire hunter.

When Dark-Hunter Ravyn Kontis is nearly eliminated by humans working with the vampire/daimons, he realizes that something is seriously wrong in Seattle. Why have some humans joined forces with the daimons? If Ravyn and the other local Dark-Hunters and their squires don't figure it out quickly, it could spell disaster.

The complex world of Dark-Hunters just got even more precarious in their first hardcover. Kenyon unleashes an abundance of drama and treachery that will have long-term repercussions. Utilizing all the skills in her impressive repertoire, Kenyon keeps the Byzantine storyline humming and the romantic tension sizzling. (Jun., 336 pp., $19.59)
