Death, like love, has many subtle and varied layers.
Lost spirit Tamsin West learned that the hard way after a group of Soul Eaters sliced up her soul like birthday cake and doomed her to dust. Only dust is not really the end. Spiritually speaking. By finding a body at the point of death, Tamsin can live again. Live to hunt her killers.
There's just one catch: that body can have no soul.
Jumping into the body of a murdered royal Prime Vampire is everything a lost spirit on the vengeance trail could hope for. Princess Angelique Duprey, make that ex-Princess, has all the occult strength of the Damned plus a Prime's ability to manipulate the earth's elements.
Just the sort of edge Tamsin needs to track a murderous band of Soul Eaters. Unfortunately, as a person, the Princess' only power seems to have been to piss people off. Dangerous people. The kind looking to start a lethal turf war with the Prime's clan for a cut of Chicago's Dark Side.
Reanimating the body puts Tamsin right in the line of fire. But paranormal politics won't matter much if she can't convince the handsome Fae Hunter holding a knife to the Vamp's throat not to kill her all over again.
