Seremela’s niece, Vetta, has run off again, but this time she has run into the anarchic and dangerous mining zone called Devil’s Gate. Luckily for Seremela, hand- some Vampyre lawyer Duncan Turner is not about to let her venture into Devil’s Gate alone. It’s a wise move: Upon their arrival, they learn Vetta is about to be executed for a murder she didn’t commit. Saving her may be tricky indeed! (SAMHAINPUBLISHING.COM, dl $3.50)
