Friday Memes: Blood Cross by Faith Hunter

Happy Friday everybody!
Book Beginnings on Friday is now hosted by Rose City Reader. The Friday 56 is hosted at Freda's Voice. Check out the links above for the rules and for the posts of the participants each week. Don’t dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.

This week I am spotlighting Blood Cross by Faith Hunter which is the second book in her Jane Yellowrock urban fantasy series. Here is the description from Amazon:
Jane Yellowrock is back on the prowl against the children of the night...

Leo Pellissier, head of the Vampire Council, has hired skinwalker Jane Yellowrock to hunt and kill one of their own who has broken sacred ancient rules. But Jane quickly realizes that in a community that is thousands of years old, loyalties run deep, mythos have real power, and the past often has more force than the present.

When the witches and blood magic--black magic--become involved, Jane Yellowrock needs new weapons and friends at her side to fight the malevolent evil that stalks New Orleans.
Beginning:
Molly and the kids and I were eating a big lunch when the lightning hit. 
Friday 56: 
Rick LaFleur, former undercover cop, now on administrative duty, led me down several flights of stairs to a room with no name, only a number: 666.

"Cute," I said of the numbers.

"Yeah, cop humor. we keep the weird-shit cases and the woo-woo files in here."

  4. I love the cover and the snippets. Maybe I will give it a try. I am always on the fence about vampire stories since I scare easily. Happy Friday!
