With the silver murders solved and her training as a mage underway, Sunaya figured her life would get easier. But between the Chief Mage's packed schedule and the grunt work demanded of her as an apprentice mage, magic lessons are few and far between. Worse, her apprenticeship leaves little time for her job as an Enforcer, and without bounties Sunaya's money pouch is drying up - fast.
Even so, when Shiftertown Inspector Boon Lakin asks for Sunaya's help digging deeper into the murder of a fellow Enforcer, Sunaya has no trouble making room in her life to help him. The trail leads them to a series of crimes victimizing shifters for the entertainment of vicious humans. Sunaya and her friends race to identify the perpetrators and free the survivors, and the stakes are heightened when she discovers one of the victims has a connection to her. But if Sunaya is not careful, she may end up a very dead shifter herself.

The story is good, but I'd like to address a trend I see going on in this Audible/Kindle/Amazon world. Have you noticed how we aren't being sold books. We are being sold portions of books. This second portion did not even attempt to end with a slight inference of a sequel. It ended with one of the main characters coming up missing on the last page. So we pay full price for portions of a full story. Something not right about that... or at least not truthful. Now we have to wait until portion three comes out, otherwise known as Book 3...
I read the first book in series and decided to try the audio version of the 2nd. Glad I did. Laurel Schroeder was very good and really enhanced the book. I enjoyed this book as much as the first. Though Sunaya seemed more hot-headed than snarky here. The initial mystery was solved but the book ended in a huge cliff-hanger. A plot device that many times make me less tempted to pick up the next book. I do like the characters and this world the author has created so I will get book 3 if it has the same narrator.
