THE TASTE OF NIGHT
One unique element of Pettersson's amazing supernatural series is that
the battle between light and shadow is chronicled in comic books sold to average humans as soon as the events occur. This places critical decisions in the spotlight and forces the heroine to confront the consequences of her actions. While filled with magical action, danger and violent emotions, this dazzling series is primarily a woman's journey of discovery of herself and her growing powers.
It's been six months since Joanna Archer learned she was a Zodiac Light Warrior and was forced to take over the identity of her deceased sister, Olivia. Since her father is the evil Shadow leader Tulpa, that makes Joanna the legendary "Kairos," who is made of both light and shadow.
While Joanna vows to fight for the light, she has yet to gain the full trust of the rest of the Light Warriors. When the Shadows release a toxic virus into the Las Vegas valley, their evil plan becomes apparent. But can Joanna put aside her quest for personal vengeance in order to fight for the larger good? If she isn't careful, her burning quest for revenge will get her killed. (AVON, Apr., 448 pp., $6.99)
