Image of Tainted (Blood Lily Chronicles, Book 1)

A charismatic heroine with sassy wit makes this apocalyptic story of good
vs. evil entertaining. Kenner's first in the Blood Lily Chronicles skillfully brings Lily's first-person narrative to life. The plot is fast paced and contains some
violence, but this is urban fantasy with appealing characters, solid dialogue and an unpredictable storyline.

Lily Carlyle's younger sister is brutally attacked by Lucas Johnson. When Lily goes after him, he kills her, and Lily awakens in a new body with a new name, Alice. She wants revenge, but that's not why she's been given a second chance at redemption. A group of demons is preparing to open the last of the nine gates to hell. That's where prophesied super chick Lily comes in. Now she's an assassin for the forces of good, and all she has to do is stop the demons and lock the gate. (ACE, Nov., 320 pp., $7.99)
