Ah, New Orleans! Jazz, witches, beignets, vampires...
Jane Yellowrock has remained in New Orleans after finishing her initial job (Skinwalker) because she has been hired by the Vampire Council to find one of their own - hunt and kill a vampire who has been changing young ones and releasing them upon the world as rogues. Jane, unbeknownst to all but her best friend Molly, is a Cherokee skinwalker, which allows her to be one of the best vampire hunters in the country. But Jane has two problems – well, more than that – to deal with immediately: first, Molly has brought her two children to New Orleans to stay with Jane despite the knowledge of the vampires and the violence taking place. Second; as soon as her task is complete, the master vampire of New Orleans will kill Jane in vengeance for killing his son in her previous job (see Skinwalker). Will she even be able to make it out of town?From official release/information:
