From the imagination of one of today's most talented authors comes a mesmerizing, darkly disturbing world on the brink of apocalypse. With her new Hunter Kiss series, Liu has created a uniquely tough, yet vulnerable heroine in Maxine Kiss, who's struggling to grasp the mysteries of her heritage. Through Maxine's eyes, readers take a heart-stopping ride where buried secrets could change the fate of the world. Liu is an auto buy!

A terrible gift and destiny
has been handed down from mother to daughter for centuries. The women of Maxine Kiss' line are demon hunters, gifted with five living demon tattoos that both protect them and fight for them. But each woman will die young after the demons decide it's time to transfer to the next generation.

Maxine has had custody of "the boys" for five years and has already done battle with the Queen of the Demons, Blood Mama, for the soul
of her lover. With the veil holding
the demons imprisoned failing, something dangerous has slipped through. To fight it, Maxine has to learn more about her terrible heritage and look deep within the darkest parts of her heart. (ACE, Jul., 305 pp., $7.99)
