HEART OF THE DEMON
Garner is back with another installment of her Warriors of the Rift series, revisiting her distinctive brand of characters, including vampires, demons and fey alike.

Add to that the sizzling chemistry between Keira and Finn, and Garner’s latest definitely heats up the pages.
Keira O’Brien, a fey with a criminal record, is summoned by the Council of Preternaturals, an organization designed to keep the peace among the supernatural beings inhabiting Earth. She could be the key to fighting off a catastrophic threat from a group of human-hating preternaturals. Finn Evnissyen, a demon and hired assassin, wants to stop the threat, too, in order to gain his freedom. When Keira and Finn meet, sparks fly, but with the danger around them spiking in a pending war, it’s hard to tell who can be trusted. (FOREVER, Mar., 368 pp., $7.99)
