Dakota Frost is back, and the ink is about to hit the fan-again.

Graffiti comes to life in the dark heart of Atlanta's oldest cemetery, slaying one of the city's best loved vampires before the eyes of his friend Dakota Frost. Deadly magick is at work on the city's walls, challenging even the amazing power of Dakota's tattoos to contain it. The hungry, graffiti magick loves to kill, and the Edgeworld is no longer safe from its own kind.

Dakota begins a harrowing journey to save those she loves and to discover the truth behind the spreading graffiti-even if that truth offends the vampires, alienates the werekin and creates police suspicion of her every action.

Saving Atlanta may cost her everything, including custody of her "adopted" weretiger daughter, Cinnamon. But failure is not an option. If the graffiti isn't stopped, Cinnamon could be the next victim.

Epic Award winner Anthony Francis writes the Skindancer series while working fulltime for "that famous search engine whose name begins with a 'G'."

I loved this book more than I can say. Fill this spot with me blathering on like the fangirl I am. One of my very favorite bits is that this is Science Fiction that actually has some science in it. Well done. Read full review

About the author (2011)

Trisha J. Wooldridge reviews dining establishments in Faerie for her local paper, much to the natives' confusion. She often gets injured while trying to ride her horse, save the planet, interview famous movie and music people, or wear heels. She swears she loves her Husband-of-Awesome for more than his health insurance (he's also pretty cute). Her work has been in two EPIC Award-winning anthologies Bad-Ass Faeries and UnCONventional. Her debut novel, The Kelpie, comes out in December 2013.
