Cheat the Grave
The Fifth Sign of the Zodiac
by Vickie Pettersson
Release date: May 25, 2010
Description from Goodreads
Las Vegas socialite and otherwordly avenger Joanna Archer gave up everything when she embraced mortality—abandoning her powers and altering her destiny to save a child . . . and a city. Now her former allies are her enemies—and her enemies have nothing to fear.
Yet still she is bound to a prophecy that condemns her to roam a nightmare landscape that ordinary humans cannot see and dare not enter. And a beast is on her trail—an insane killer blinded by bloodlust, who's determined to rip much more from Joanna than merely her now-fragile life. Survival is no longer an option in this dark realm where good and evil have blurred into confusing shades of gray—unless she can gather together an army of onetime foes and destroy everything she once believed in.
I stumbled onto this series last summer while scanning the paperbacks in my local library. The first book in the series Scent of Shadows: The First Sign of the Zodiac had me hooked from the first chapter. Before I was halfway through, I tried to order the next book with the library but found out there were 3 other people already waiting. So yep, I went to the store and bought the rest of the series.
I can't wait to get my hands on this new release. For those who can't wait (like me) Amazon is offering the Kindle version of Scent of Shadows for free with bonus material for Cheat the Grave included.
Get your read on!!!
