by J.C. Daniels (Shiloh Walker) is the start of a new urban fantasy series with another of those kick-butt heroines who is determined to rise above the horrors of her past and stand for those who are weaker and oppressed. I like characters who are able to use the 'that which does not kill us makes us stronger' mentality and hone themselves into a well-tempered weapon and Kit Colbana fits that description perfectly. Thanks to another reader's review, I discovered that there is a short story on Tor.com which sets the stage for Kit's world and is actually referred to in this book. It is titled Stroke of Dumb Luck and available at this link. The action never stops and the strong characters make these both wonderful reads.

I was provided with a copy of this title in return for an honest review.
