Waiting on Wednesday (#2) - Shadow Rites

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly feature hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine where bloggers can showcase upcoming books they are excited about with readers and other bloggers. 

I’m really excited about this week’s showcase, it’s the next book in a series I’ve been following since it started, and which I've finally caught up reading with.  Ms. Hunter is also one of my auto-buy authors.

Shadow Rites
By Faith Hunter
Jane Yellowrock, Book 0
Release Date: April 5 , 2016

Jane Yellowrock has her hands full in the latest novel in theNew York Times bestselling series that captures “the essence of urban fantasy” (SF Site).

Slaying vampires is child’s play for skinwalker Jane Yellowrock. But handling the complicated politics of New Orleans’ supernatural players is another story...

Jane is keeping the peace between visiting groups of witches and vamps in the city, but then trouble comes knocking on her doorstep. When her house is magically attacked, the wild chase to find her assailants unearths a mystery that has literally been buried deep.

A missing master vampire, presumed long deceased, is found chained in a pit...undead, raving mad, and in the company of two human bodies. Now it’s up to Jane to find out who kept the vampire hidden for so long and why, because the incident could tip already high supernatural tensions to an all-out arcane war. 

What's your "waiting on" pick this week?
