NIGHT SHIFT
by Lilith Saintcrow

Genre: Paranormal/Urban Fantasy, Urban Fantasy

RT Rating

The first book in Saintcrow's new urban fantasy series is a gritty, violent and utterly compelling twist on a now-familiar trope. Jill Kismet is, above all else, a survivor, and it is her story that will haunt readers long after the blood, gore and demons have faded into memory.

Jill is a hunter. Instead of
animals, though, she hunts hellbreed and other things that go bump in the night. Possessing superhuman strength and sight thanks to a deal with the local hellbreed in power, she finds
herself pulled into a maelstrom of
violence and gore -- over and above the usual, that is.

Fortunately for Jill, she has good people at her back -- including
the enigmatic Saul Dustcircle, a werecat who's not only able to keep her grounded, but who's also one heck of
a good cook. With Saul's help, Jill
is able to track down the hellbreed
and rogue Were who have wreaked violence upon not only the civilian
population of Jill's territory, but on
the police department as well. (Orbit, Jul., 352 pp., $6.99)
