After Kit and Rachel rescue a half-vampire, they work to protect him while searching for a way to stop the reaper.

I read and reviewed the first novel in the Lost Soul series; The Stubborn Dead (click to read my review) and loved this new urban fantasy. Fans of the hit television show Supernatural are sure to love this paranormal hunter series. Protagonist Rachel Miller is a supernatural hunter, she is strong, opinionated and takes her job seriously. What book are you waiting on?
