When Nell Nicholson Ingram met skinwalker Jane Yellowrock, she had been exiled by the cult she was raised in, God's Cloud of Glory. Nell has power, and her connection to the forest that surrounds her Soulwood Farm protects her. After Jane refers her to PsyLED, a federal agency that polices paranormals, Nell gets drawn into the investigation of an antiparanormal terrorist group called Human Speakers of Truth. Joining this PsyLED team will bring Nell back into the world—one full of strangers and possible friends, and the Blood Master of Nashville. When the Master's vassal is kidnapped, Nell and her team are forced to go deep into the heart of the very cult Nell fears.
VERDICT Hunter introduces a new heroine with ties to her "Skinwalker" series that will please fans of those books. Plenty of action, magic, and fascinating characters, both familiar and new, create another terrific urban fantasy from an established author.
