Meet Siobhan Quinn--half werewolf, half vampire, and completely screwed.
After successfully transitioning from being a notorious junkie demon hunter into a notorious werepire hit man, she's become a full-fledged member of the world of horrors.  But her initiation into the underbelly of supernatural society hasn't earned her any friends.  Not only is she being hounded by a former priest with a vendetta against the undead, but her boss, Mr. B, has no qualms about sending her on missions pretty much guaranteed to end her life . . . again.
When the daughter of a prominent Rhode Island necromancer goes missing, Quinn is given the thankless job of tracking her down before her father finds out and raises (literal) hell.  The only problem is that the girl is caught up in something much bigger than a sample vanishing act.  Something related to an ancient magical totem so powerful that a host of distinctly unsavory folks in three dimensions would kill to get their hands on it.
And Quinn's the lucky monster caught in the cross fire . . .

Not quite the shine of the first but I'd give it 3.8. Intrigued by the ending. I'm sorry for the parting of the ways at the end. Read full review

User Review  - Izzy - Goodreads

I've enjoyed Caitlin Kiernan's other novels over the years, so I'm not sure why it took me so long to pick up these two (possibly because now I have to wait?), but I'm glad I finally did. I think Red ... Read full review
