In pure Yellowrock fashion, skinwalker Jane kicks rogue vampire butt in Hunter’s latest. Jane is as strong and fierce as ever and her no-holds-barred attitude is the highlight of the story. A compelling plot filled with plenty of action as well as high-stakes tension will keep readers hooked in. Her vivid images of her contemporary, dark supernatural world and the distinctive, otherworldly beings that inhabit it make Hunter expert at urban fantasy. Once again, fans of the series will not be disappointed.

One night in New Orleans at a high school gym, Jane Yellowrock takes down a revenant — a rogue vampire who has died a second time and risen again — before it kills innocent people. Over an hour later, Jane puts down another revenant in nearby Belle Chasse, one that was pulled from the Mississippi River. Suddenly New Orleans is in danger from the murderous revenants and Jane, enforcer for ancient vampire, Leo Pellisier, the Master of the City of New Orleans, is on the case. Jane and her team's pursuit of the revenants leads them to face a powerful, deadly magic, mutinous European vampires and a pending invasion of New Orleans with Leo’s control in jeopardy. Stakes are high as Jane fights to protect Leo and keep New Orleans from being taken over. (ACE, May, 384 pp., $7.99)
