Publisher Comments:

Nothing says "home" like being attacked by humans with very large guns, as Jane and Anyan discover when they arrive in Rockabill. These are professionals, brought into kill, and they bring Anyan down before either Jane or the barghest can react. Seeing Anyan fall awakens a terrible power within Jane, and she nearly destroys herself taking out their attackers.

Jane wakes, weeks later, to discover that she's not the only thing that's been stirring. Something underneath Rockabill is coming to life: something ancient, something powerful, and something that just might destroy the world.

Jane and her friends must act, striking out on a quest that only Jane can finish. For whatever lurks beneath the Old Sow must be stopped...and Jane's just the halfling for the job.

Review:

"The fourth Jane True installment (after Tracking the Tempest) brings even more sass, snark, and supernatural action. Jane and her lover, Anyan, get just one day of resting at home in Rockabill after a life-threatening, life-changing adventure before being attacked again. Using all her powers to save them, Jane falls into a coma for a month, awakening to a transformed Rockabill: its inhabitants fall into zombie-like trances, graffiti is everywhere, and strangers are lurking about. Jane and her friend Blondie must find a mythological force hidden in the town and open the four locks guarding it before it falls into the wrong hands. There's enough plot to make a satisfying novella, padded out mostly by Jane's frequent asides and scenes of sexual tension between her and Anyan. (Aug.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC.

I actually liked this installment of the series.....while it did end in somewhat of a cliffhanger I am still planning on reading what happens to Jane.
