Taking a break from her Paladins, red-hot talent Morgan kicks off another supernatural series, the Talions. In setting up the challenges and unique characteristics of her protagonists, she ensures that there will be more adventures to come. This is great stuff!

For centuries Grand Dame Judith has commanded the warrior Talions, who eliminate members of the Kyth society when they turn rogue. The Kyths' unique adaptation allows them to feed off the energy of humans, normally with no harm to anyone, though some do turn murderous.

Former Viking Ranulf has been Judith's enforcer for so long that the darkness threatens to overwhelm him. While tracking a rogue, Ranulf discovers Kerry Logan, who despite her power is unaware of her heritage. But when Kerry saves some victims during a rogue's arson fire, she's brought to the rogue's attention. (POCKET STAR, Aug., 384 pp., $6.99)
