Stormwalker Janet Begay, proprietor of the Crossroads Hotel, a place where the paranormal stop for a safe night’s rest, discovers the hard way that a slayer is targeting Ansel, a Nightwalker who’s become a more-or-less permanent resident.
When Janet and her boyfriend Mick intervene to save Ansel’s un-life, they find that the attack is the beginning of an oncoming storm. Janet has her hands full already with the upcoming marriage of her father, her crazy half-sister, the return of a woman who claims to be Coyote’s wife, a couple dragons on her back, and her worry about Mick, who’s behaving strangely again.
But it seems that everyone is after Ansel, who fears he killed the woman he loves in a Nightwalker frenzy. Janet must choose between protecting Ansel or facing the most powerful magical beings in the world, who are willing to destroy Janet, Mick, her hotel, and everyone she cares about to get to Ansel and his secrets.
Uncaged Review: This is a solid urban fantasy, and an action-packed novel that had me furiously flipping pages to see what happened next. Even though it’s book 4 in a series, I hadn’t read the others before this one, and I had no problems with the storyline. Janet is a Stormwalker, with magic that can harness the powers of a storm, and her boyfriend Mick is a dragon, and a powerful one at that. When a woman goes missing, and the resident vampire, Ansel is hunted and blaimed for the disappearance, Janet and Mick go on the hunt for the truth.And they get a lot more than they bargained for.
I really enjoyed the book, it took a few twists and turns into this complicated story and kept me on the edge of my seat at times. Even with all the tense action, there is humor to lighten it up before it thrusts you head first back into the action.
I’m sure as I get time, I’ll continue this series.
