The Cross Country Killer has moved on to New Orleans and FBI Special Agent Heather Wallace is there to find him. Another victim has died by the hands of the CCK, and this time the evidence leads Heather to Club Hell and its resident rock star Dante.

Dante is Nightkind, a vampire. He has little memory of his past, and what he does know has come in flashes. Lucien DeNoir stands by him and helps to ease his troubled mind, but Dante’s friends are dying and a madman has him marked.

Despite Dante’s reluctance to cooperate, Heather continues to issue warnings to the gorgeous young man who has more than captured her attention. There’s more to the case she’s been working than she knows, and now someone further up the FBI ladder wants Heather out of the way. Sticking with Dante may mean her death, or it could very well be the only thing that keeps Heather alive.

A Rush of Wings is an engaging urban fantasy and this author’s debut novel. Heather Wallace believed that the only monsters in the world were the sadistic human killers she tracked down in her job for the FBI, and then she met a vampire whose very existence challenged everything she thought she knew. Ms. Phoenix spins a deliciously dark and seductive tale filled with sadistic serial killers, sexy vampires, powerful fallen angels and secret experiments. The fast-pace and creative twists in the storyline makes this action-packed read one to remember, and the steamy romance will have readers eagerly looking for more of the same.

I just completed this book and it was excellent. I went immediately online to see if there were other novels by this author and alas, this was her debut novel. I now understand this is to be a series and am very glad to know that - I'll be reading more!
