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 . . . Praise for Blood Oranges'Sly, sardonically nasty, and amusingly clever.' Kirkus Reviews' A fast-paced, profane, and combustive little thriller.' The Black Letters'A pedal-to-the-metal, balls-to-the-wall female antihero.' Amber Benson

This is the sequel to Blood Oranges. If you liked that one you will enjoy this one as well. Pushing the boundaries of what Urban Fantasy is you can't help rooting for Siobhan, just don't call her by her first name! Read full review
