Staff Pick

Turquoise Draka has come a long way, appearing as a strong young woman whose mental stamina will be challenged and her will tested.

Set in a vampiric subculture, this is a dark book — both psychologically and physically. Turquoise is a controlled hunter whose present assignment, though lucrative, challenges her to face previous images of herself. We get to know Turquoise through these flashbacks, including points where she is innocent. Midnight Predator explores various points of view in the slave/master relationship, as well as the weight of manipulation in these roles. Midnight Predator reminds us that experience creates who we are and also affects who we seem to be and how we view our environment.
