Jaz Parks 2: Another One Bites the Dust

This one had all the requirements for a sequel that I like. It was as action-packed and bum-kicking as the original AND it added a new race of "others" to the list of bad guys. This time Jaz goes after a few reavers in her search for Samos. And they do some pretty cool things. They have shields that only Jaz can see with her new sensitivity.

She basically has to time her attacks to slide between the reavers' shields. The term reavers makes me think of the creepy things from Firefly. These are not exactly similar. But, they are soul-eaters who lick souls with their studded tongues and slurp them into the third eye on their forehead (eww!). So, Jaz has to deal with these guys while trying to thwart a terrorist attack by vampires that could trigger a world war.

Heavy, right? This is a great fun read. If you're into urban fantasy heroine-focused series, this is a great one to get on your ereader to-read list.

Definitely a good time! Next up, Jennifer Rardin's Jaz Parks series book three: Biting the Bullet.
