Book Two in the Skindancer series.
Dakota Frost is back, and the ink is about to hit the fan-again.
Graffiti comes to life in the dark heart of Atlanta's oldest cemetery, slaying one of the city's best-loved vampires before the eyes of his friend Dakota Frost. Deadly magick is at work on the city's walls, challenging even the amazing power of Dakota's tattoos to contain it. The hungry, graffiti magick loves to kill, and the Edgeworld is no longer safe from its own kind.
Dakota begins a harrowing journey to save those she loves and to discover the truth behind the spreading graffiti - even if that truth offends the vampires, alienates the werekin and creates police suspicion of her every action.
Saving Atlanta may cost her everything, including custody of her "adopted" weretiger daughter, Cinnamon. But failure is not an option. If the graffiti isn't stopped, Cinnamon could be the next victim.

I am a voracious reader (average about 4-5 Audible books a week, in addition to those I "eyeball".) I have been hooked on recorded books since the time of cassettes/CDs and was thrilled when I became an Audible member in 2007. I find reader reviews good guides to spending my credits, so have finally decided to write a few (although, I would rather be reading!)
In this 2nd book of Anthony Francis's Skindancer series, we find Dakota Frost (skin dancer/tattoo artist) combatting magical graffiti in Atlanta. We are re-introduced to the wonderful world of vampires, were kin and wizards. Wonderful premise and setting. Unfortunately, the writing is still uneven (as in the debut novel, "Frost Moon.") I never really felt engaged to any of the characters (but, I am becoming fond of Cinnamon, Dakota's adopted were kin daughter, even though her speech sometimes reminds me of a fowl-mouthed Jar Jar Binks.)
The book drags a bit and got too informative on graffiti and tattoos. The action scenes are good, though. This is a good read if you are looking for some escapism.
Again, Traci Odom, the narrator, delivers with distinct characterizations.
I listen to many books and this series drew me in and made me excited.
great 2nd book in the set! great pick up from the 1st book!
I love the growth of the story a
she was good
its to long for that
this is a great author cant wait for more! i would love a 3rd book with frost and freinds
I heart scifi, and have become addicted to listening instead of reading, or even watching tv.
I liked it. It was really long, which I typically like longer books, but it seems like a lot could have been cut out without losing anything. Some of the dialogue was forced and repetitive or maybe redundant. And some chapters seem like they could have been cut altogether, like having lunch with her father. We could have learned what we learned there from any source... Like cinnamons school. Otherwise, I think I liked it better than the first book. Cinnamon turned into my favorite character, there was real growth in everyone and big changes happened. It's setting its self up to be an interesting series.
