Jane Yellowrock is a shape-shifting skinwalker…and the woman rogue vampires fear most.
Jane walks softly and carries a big stake to keep the peace in New Orleans, all part of her job as official Enforcer to Leo Pellissier, Master of the City. But Leo’s reign is being threatened by a visit from a delegation of ancient European vampires seeking to expand their dominions.
And there’s another danger to the city. When she hears reports of revenant vampires, loose in NOLA and out for blood, Jane goes to put them down—and discovers there’s something unusual about these revenants. They never should have risen.
Jane must test her strength against a deadly, unnatural magic beyond human understanding, and a ruthless cadre of near-immortals whose thirst for power knows no bounds…

He is a better fighter than Leo and is always first on the battlefield.

Grégoire is blond, prettier than a girl, delicate, gorgeous with dark blue eyes. He appears to be fourteen or fifteen and is 5’7”. Weighs about 100 lbs. He carries himself with an elegance that puts the other vamps to shame. The color of his scent a pale green, the honey gold of spring flowers, the perfume of freshwater streams and summer gardens. A pale green, the honey gold of spring flowers, soft, like the seashore.
Grégoire looks fragile, but his file suggests he likes a good war, battle, or barroom brawl . He has fought in many wars. He can handle silver and had been silver poisoned recently.
