Move over, Buffy, there's a new vampire slayer in town. Ready to take on one of the most legendary and brutal vampires to ever walk the earth, Turquoise Draka is the gutsy hunter in goth author Amelia Atwater-Rhodes's action-packed fourth novel, Midnight Predator.
An up-and-coming star mercenary in a world of shadowy creatures and naive humans, Turquoise has been offered the task of eliminating a bloodthirsty vampiress named Jeshickah. As a bounty hunter, Turquoise is ready to accept any challenge for the right price, especially when Ravyn -- her competition for the leadership of an important Bruja guild -- is given the same offer. To accomplish the job, Turquoise and Ravyn must do something unheard of: enter Midnight, a treacherous domain where vampires rule over human slaves, and act as servants until one of them can finish the job. When the two are sold into Midnight, Turquoise is given to the realm's protective master, Jaguar. But while Turquoise moves closer to him and looks for the right time to complete her assignment, she unexpectedly comes face-to-face with a horrific part of her past -- Lord Daryl, an evil vampire who killed her family and was once her master. Now, as Turquoise faces the dark creatures before her, she must deal with the ghosts in her own mind and make a decision that could change her life.
With a fast-paced plot and strong characters, Atwater-Rhodes serves up another delicious novel for her fans. Turquoise is a rocking heroine who isn't afraid to stick up for herself, and the book's wicked characters keep us on the edge of our seats with their surprise appearances. Readers will savor the emotional connection between Turquoise and Jaguar, and although we're left begging to know what happens next, there's a feeling that this isn't the last we've read of them.
