As a coroner, medusa Seremela Telemar has always felt more comfortable chatting over a dead body than over drinks. But when her wild niece, Vetta, runs off to Devil's Gate, a lawless town that has sprung up overnight in a modern-day gold rush, she knows she has to extricate her before the rebellious girl gets into real trouble. Though she's confident in her head snakes' ability to defend her against attackers, Seremela is still a bit nervous about braving this modern-day Wild West by herself.

Also, you see the fates of characters met in prior books. Always a satisfying read.

Alice Clark, a Wyr and schoolteacher, has had two friends murdered in as many days, and she's just found the body of a third. She arrives at the scene only minutes before Gideon Riehl, a wolf Wyr and current detective in the Wyr Division of Violent Crime - and, as Alice oh-so-inconveniently recognizes at first sight, her mate. But the sudden connection Riehl and Alice feel is complicated when the murders are linked to a serial killer who last struck seven years ago, killing seven people in seven days. They have just one night before the killer strikes again. And every sign points to Alice as the next victim.

When Grace Andreas's sister, Petra, and her husband are both killed, Grace inherits the power and responsibilities of the Oracle of Louisville, as well as her sister's two young children - neither of which she is prepared for. Then Khalil, Demonkind and Djinn prince of House Marid, decides to make himself a part of the household, both as guardian and counterpoint to Grace's impudence towards the Elder Races.

Grace is a human mortal, albeit The Oracle of Louisville. Khalil is Djinn. What could possibly go wrong with this encounter?

Everything... as evidenced by their 'date'. But the chemistry between the two is both combative and passionate.

Enjoy another story in the Elder Races Series.

T-Rex was thought dead, but some men are harder than you think. At least Tank knew something wasn't right.

I will not give any spoilers, but I am sad that I have no more Sinner books to listen to. More... please.

Mercy is having difficulty with her bond with the pack. And of course someone is out to hurt too, as usual.

Sam is having problems of his own. (Recommend reading the novella 'Silver' in 'Shifting Shadows' prior to this novel)

All of this combines to harm those around her... Adam, the pack, even some of the humans.

But as always, Mercy will fight to protect those she deems as "Hers". Enjoy the roller-coaster ride that is the life of Mercy Thompson.

As always Lorelei King brings to life the world which Patricia Briggs has created.

Hear the conclusion of this trilogy surrounding the 'unusual' residents of a tiny 'strange' Texas town.
