First things first. Here’s the excerpt:
“The cats aren’t trackers,” I said. They’re sight hunters. We don’t have our own K9 paranormal dog. We don’t have a werewolf on the team, and that would be the best nose were-critter.”
“If I flew a werewolf in, could it—could he track this shooter?”
“I doubt it. Too many scent patterns.”
“You have thought of something,” Ming said.
“Maybe.” I frowned. It would be against regulations. But PsyLED didn’t always go by regs. And Jane Yellowrock had a tame werewolf… “Hmmm.”
“Tell me what you are thinking,” Ming said, her voice full of velvet persuasion, a vampire mesmerism.
I looked her in the eye. “Really? You’n gonna try that on me? ’Cause it don’t work.”
“So I see.” Ming sat back against the leather, making it sigh like flesh still alive. She motioned to Yummy. “Go with her. Provide assistance as needed. PsyLED will bring you back before dawn.” Ming looked at me, her eyes intense, giving a final little push with her voice and her mind. “You will bring her back before dawn.”
“I’ll be glad to give Yummy a ride, but if traffic stalls us on the highway and she burns up, you’un’re paying to have my truck fumigated. I hear it’s mighty hard to get out the burned vamp stink.”
Yummy made a strangled sound that might have been laughter.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Thoroughly!
It begins as just another PsyLED case, tracking down a mysterious supernatural killer. What none of the team can know is just how tough this case will be.
An invisible assassin targets a powerful senator, burning down the house he was visiting. What seems a simple enough case has many disturbing elements. A supernatural foe more powerful than any PsyLED has encountered before may destroy them all.
The best part of the story for me was the interplay between Nell and the rest of the team, especially Occam, as she works on figuring out where she fits in.
Things get a little more serious between Nell and Occam, and there’s some serious competition for Occam coming from the church people that Nell just can’t seem to stay away from.
The relationship between Nell and her sister, Mud, who is different in the same way she is, deepens in a very satisfactory way.
Nell also finds out more about what she is during the case. The question is if she will lose her humanity in the process.
I recommend this book wholeheartedly. It is a great addition to the Soulwood series and the Jane Yellowrock universe.

Nell Ingram has always known she was different. Since she was a child, she’s been able to feel and channel ancient powers from deep within the earth. When she met Jane Yellowrock, her entire life changed, and she was recruited into PsyLED—the Homeland Security division that polices paranormals. But now her newly formed unit is about to take on its toughest case yet.
A powerful senator barely survives an assassination attempt that leaves many others dead—and the house he was visiting burns to the ground. Invisible to security cameras, the assassin literally disappears, and Nell’s team is called in. As they track a killer they know is more—or less—than human, they unravel a web of dark intrigue and malevolent motives that tests them to their limits and beyond.
