Author(s): 

Hunter’s fifth Jane Yellowrock installment takes us on a wild, danger-filled adventure. The worldbuilding includes a perfect blend of seductive romance, nail-biting action, intriguing characters and betrayal from all sides. Well plotted and fast paced, this book contains a satisfying arc of development for our heroine, culminating in two very different conflicts: one that threatens her life and one that threatens her soul.

Skinwalker and vampire-killer Jane Yellowrock is summoned back to New Orleans when her boss, vampire master of the city Leo Pellisier, is threatened. Someone wants war and isn’t afraid to go through Jane to get it. Jane’s investigation brings to light a plague that is infecting vampire masters left and right, making them easy prey. As Jane struggles to discover the plague’s origins — and find the rogue vampire whom she suspects is attempting to take over the city — she also must face the consequences of poor decisions made in the past.
