Sent to retrieve experimental body armor, Jaz and Vayl find themselves undercover at the Corpus Christi Winter Festival. Cassandra, Cole and Miles Bergman round out the team as their plans to eliminate Chien-Lung and recover the item take shape. Bergman has more emotional connection in this case than the rest of the team; it’s his armor that’s been stolen.

There’s an added complication, Reavers, who rip away and steal marked souls. Worse still, they may be connected to Edward Samos, the Raptor, who the team continues their hunt for. Lucky for Jaz, her emerging gifts enable her to see their shields and ultimately help in finding a way to stop the murderous creatures long enough for them to finish their assignment.

The bond of sverhamin and avhar grows ever stronger for Vayl and Jaz. Their talents strengthen, and for Vayl his latest change is something to behold.

Another One Bites the Dust is the second installment in the Jaz Parks series. Packed with paranormal beings and high-tech weaponry, Ms. Rardin weaves a marvelous tale filled with tension and non-stop action. The added humor, especially when Cole and Jaz are involved, is too laugh-out-loud funny to resist. The ‘welcome mat’ just did me in laughing.

Funny, paranormal, soul-stealing...I think Katie may already have this one on her nightstand. :D

Sounds very tempting right?

Wouldn't you just love to see Katie's TBR pile? *grin*
