Full of imagination, wit and random sh*t flying through the air, this high-octane adventure from an irreverent new voice in genre fiction will blow your tiny mind.

FOR TEAGAN FROST, SH*T JUST GOT REAL.

Teagan Frost is having a hard time keeping it together. Sure, she's got telekinetic powers - a skill that the government is all too happy to make use of, sending her on secret break-in missions that no ordinary human could carry out. But all she really wants to do is kick back, have a beer, and pretend she's normal for once.

But then a body turns up at the site of her last job - murdered in a way that only someone like Teagan could have pulled off. She's got 24 hours to clear her name - and it's not just her life at stake. If she can't unravel the conspiracy in time, her hometown of Los Angeles will be in the crosshairs of an underground battle that's on the brink of exploding . . .

Full of imagination, wit and random sh*t flying through the air, this insane adventure from an irreverent new voice will blow your tiny mind.

Like Alias meets X-Men in a grimy LA setting. Full throttle from the opening page, this book gives urban sci-fi fans everything they could want with a spiky heroine, shady government agencies, high stakes and a diverse cast of characters. I loved it! — Maria Lewis, author, journalist and screenwriter
Furious, frenetic, fun, and 'f*ck you': All equally valid descriptions of this book and its punk rock chef/psychic warrior protagonist. It's like the X-Men, if everybody was sick of each other's sh*t, they had to work manual labor to pay rent, and Professor X was a sociopathic government stooge. A drunken back-alley brawler of a book — Robert Brockway, author of THE UNNOTICEABLES

One step into the Dark-Hunter world and you'll never turn back 'Brisk, ironic and relentlessly imaginative. These are not your mother's vampire novels' Boston GlobeBorn the beautiful daughter of a poor cobbler, Valynda Moore learned early in life that beauty was its own form of a curse in a world ruled by ruthless men who would use any means to take what they wanted. And the stakes were never higher than the night when one man went so far as to steal her very soul and condemn her to live eternity in the body of a living straw doll.Now she has one chance to be human again. To have her soul restored to a flesh-and-blood body. But only if she betrays everyone she holds dear, and breaks every vow she's made.To her, the choice is simple. She'd never hurt her friends. Besides, what use does she have for a human body? Until her enemies use the one lure that even she cannot resist. Now, like Eve in the Garden of Eden, Valynda has a choice. She can be selfless and alone in her cold, doll's body for eternity. Or she can pluck the one piece of fruit she's always longed to taste and become human in the process. But there's just one small catch. Not only will her friends pay the price for her humanity, she will damn all of humanity in her place.The latest gripping instalment in this sensational, rip-roaring Historical Fantasy series, set in the Dark-Hunter World from #1 NYT bestselling author Sherrilyn Kenyon, 'arguably one of the most in-demand and prolific authors in America' Publishers Weekly'Kenyon boldly goes where no author has gone before and claims yet another genre as her own.
