They are humanity's defense against the supernatural. They are the light in the darkness. They are the guardians that walk in the night. They are the Shadow Council. Joanna Harrison is a freelance editor, working mother, and loving daughter. She is also the great-granddaughter of legendary steel driving man John Henry, and she has taken up his hammer to fight against the monsters that threaten her family and her world.

I have been waiting for the next installment in this great series. The characters feel like old friends. While I miss Quincy, I appreciate this deeper look in Jo’s background. I felt like I had a good basic introduction but really enjoyed the deeper look. When stress is running high in real life, it is with a welcome happiness that a new story is on the horizon. It provides a break and I find myself rooting for these characters. Kudo’s to the author, you have brought to life characters, that while certainly not always good guys, they would be the people I would want on my side. Keep the stories coming.

College. A time of transition from youth to young adulthood. New lessons, new responsibilities, new distractions. A period of life treasured by most. Unless you happen to attend an institute of higher learning where the bullies are werewolves, the teachers are sadists, and the pretty girls are all deadly. A school like that demands a special kind of student, someone with the skills and power to survive. Someone like Declan O'Carroll.

I was at first like others who started this book. I was unsure whether I would enjoy a book that did not totally focus on Chris and Tanya. It was a great storyline. The ever expanding world of Chris and Tanya is memorizing. Each book has fresh ideas and new storytelling that ultimately lead to Chris and Tanya. I am already getting worried because there are only a few more books in the series. One of my favorite things about reading is when I can immerse myself in a series where the characters and storylines are rich and provide the much needed diversion from life that I seek. Hopefully, more stories are in the works.

Chris and Tanya have been assigned as Coven Rovers, travelling the country and troubleshooting the supernatural community. It's a job that's part cop and part auditor, one that should be long periods of boredom mixed with small parts of action. But this is Chris and Tanya, so a sudden assignment to check on a rogue vampire leads to a run-in with a hostile master vampire, a hit squad, monsters straight out of Native American folklore, black ops teams, and, worst of all, vampire politics.

If you are looking for diversion from all the headlines in the papers, this is the answer. I always enjoy when there is a series of books that have great characters and storylines. It gives a reader a chance to get to know the characters in depth. I am always looking forward to the next book in the series because I can’t wait to see where the characters are going to next.
