Shadows and Dreams (Kate Kane #2)
Riptide / June 16, 2014 / $16.99, print
My name's Kate Kane. And right now, I don't know which is more dangerous: my job, or my girlfriend. My job makes me the go-to girl for every supernatural mystery in London. My girlfriend's an eight-hundred-year-old vampire prince. Honestly, I think it's probably a tie.
A few weeks ago, I was hired for a simple missing person case. Next thing I know, I'm being arrested for murder, a vampire army is tearing up London, and even my dreams are out to get me. Something ancient, evil, and scary as hell is on the loose and looking for payback. The vampires are in chaos, the werewolves are culling everything, and the Witch Queen can't protect everyone.
Which means it's down to me. And all I've got to hold back the shadows is a stiff drink, a quirky sidekick, my creepy ex-boyfriend, and the woman who left me for a tech startup. It's going to be another interesting day.
Shadows and Dreams is the second book in Alexis Hall's Kate Kane, paranormal investigator, series. Kate has, as you may know, a love life that is more complicated than a Gordian knot, but she manages to keep the entire ordeal spinning, as she tries to keep London from ruin and different supernatural factions from getting killed and/or killing each other.
