Drawn to Ireland by a vision, Joanne Walker’s life is a mess. She’s quit her job as a police officer, things have really heated up between her and Morrison, her former boss — and she’s been bitten by a werewolf. Accompanied by her friend Gary, she travels to Tara start investigating. Once there, they’re pulled into a slip in time that pits them against the Morrigan and her dark master — as well as the spirit of Joanne’s dead mother. Joanne must battle the dark forces if she is to have any hope of saving her mother’s soul. To do that, she will need to further reconcile the different parts of herself and grow more completely into her power and destiny. (LUNA, Mar., 368 pp., $14.95)
