Purchased/Winnings/Gifts:
I'm excited to have received this package! I have a new bag to carry books in at Balticon. Eep! These are going to be books I take to get autographed. :D Can't wait! And I so love this bookmarker. It's a plastic, so it won't rip on me. Eeep! Too cool a package!
And the book....Oooo, so much love!
Goodreads Synopsis:
Jessica arrives back in town to find her best friend missing and the most powerful witch in the country is blaming her for it. But before they can move to save her, the group is attacked.

On the run, Jessica and Rourke head to the mountains. Several surprises await them, but in order to save her father they are forced to leave for New Orleans early.

Arriving on the Vampire Queen's doorstep unexpectedly, and bringing trouble on their heels, the Sects are thrown into an all out war. The vicious
skirmish ends up forcing the vamps and Jessica to fight on the same team.

The Vamp Queen ends up owing Jessica, but what Jessica doesn't realize is just how soon she'll have to cash it in...
