Midnight Predatorby Amelia Atwater-Rhodes
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.

Though she was once a happy teenager with a wonderful family and a full life, Turquoise Draka is now a hunter. In a deadly world of vampires, shapeshifters, and mercenaries, she’ll track any prey if the price is right. Her current assignment: to assassinate Jeshikah, one of the cruelest vampires in history. Her employer: an unknown contact who wants the job done fast. Her major obstacle: she’ll have to hide her strength and enter Midnight, a fabled vampire realm, as a human slave. . . .
When an unknown client sends her out to destroy Jeshikah, one of the most powerful vampires of all time, Turquoise Draka, finally accepting the fact that she will never be a normal teenage girl again, is prepared for anything that will come her way. Reprint.
Turquoise Draka, a mercenary trained to fight vampires, witches, and shape-shifters, infiltrates a vampire stronghold, but ghosts from her past and new possibilities for her future threaten to distract her from the work at hand.
