Even the purest of bloodlines can begin in darkness.
Kory has never been afraid to walk down a dark, decrepit street at night for two reasons. One, she can see the villains lurking in the shadows, hear their footsteps as they approach, feel their malicious presence closing the distance. And two, on any given day or night she’s more dangerous than them. Or so she thought.
When the rebellious teen discovers the true evil underbelly of Bishop City, Kory’s life and all she’s ever known is irrevocably shattered. She’s caught between simply surviving and following the path she never knew existed. Rex becomes her teacher and the chemistry between them is both undeniable and forbidden.
Relationships and loyalties are tested and, as Kory falls deeper into this new supernatural world, dark secrets arise, hinting that her destiny might be more than she bargained for. Is she simply another demon hunter? Or is her blood the key to something darker?

Blood In Iron by J.N. Colon (The Iron Series #1)
Kory’s life is as gritty and raw as any living nightmare can be. She has always known she is different, darker and more dangerous than those around her and she fears nothing, because she has the edge of preternatural ability to sense the evil that is lurking in the shadows. Kory is also a teen in crisis, orphaned, living with a drug-addict aunt, keeping it all buried inside, because no one can break down her defenses, until one day, someone did. That someone knows the truth of who and what Kory is and he will be her teacher. Kory’s world has just taken a turn of demonic proportions and she is destined to be the hunter that keeps humanity safe from the evil that lurks in the shadows and Rex will be the forbidden fruit she craves.
BLOOD IN IRON by J.N. Colon will feed your need for that special heroine with attitude, a need to protect and care for others, (but good grief, do NOT acknowledge that), an unbridled mouth and the strength that far surpasses a normal human.
Dark and brittle, J.N. Colon’s style brings Kory’s world to life as she etches each scene with bold clarity and creates characters that are emotionally riveting. Looking for something bold that shouts off the pages at you? BLOOD IN IRON is a strong cornerstone for what looks to be one heck of a series and it is all because of Kory.
