This book is a free read on her website:

A cult. A murder. A curse.
At twenty-two, practicing Wiccan Sophia Parsons is scratching out a living waiting tables in her Rocky Mountain hometown, a pariah after a string of unsolved murders with only one thing in common: her.

Uncaged Review: I’ve read several books by this author, and I really enjoy her style of writing. A very unique look at the world of vampires and weres, in this story they are known as the Cruor and the Strigoi and there are other “elementals” in the magic mix. Sophia begins her journey learning on who she is, and why some very powerful people are after her.
In the beginning, I had mixed feelings on Sophia, I felt she was selfish, stubborn and immature. But what I did see, was a lot of growing up that she did within the story. She got to where she needed to be and I was rooting her on eventually. The romance was a bit on the strange side for me. I knew it was coming, but it went from zero to a well-established relationship without seeing it evolve, maybe because the book is told from Sophia’s point-of-view.
The action sequences were great and Sophia comes into her own and becomes a valued member instead of a handicap and it was fun watching her get there. This book does not leave on a typical tense cliff-hanger, but it sets up well for book two. Reviewed by Cyrene
