Publisher's Summary

Fans of Kim Harrison, Jim Butcher, and Linda Hamilton will flock to the kick-ass world of Owl, a modern-day "Indiana Jane" who reluctantly navigates the hidden supernatural world.
Ex-archaeology grad student turned international antiquities thief Alix - better known now as Owl - has one rule. No supernatural jobs. Ever. Until she crosses paths with Mr. Kurosawa, a red dragon who owns and runs the Japanese Circus Casino in Las Vegas. He insists Owl retrieve an artifact stolen 3,000 years ago and makes her an offer she can't refuse: He'll get rid of a pack of vampires that want her dead.
A dragon is about the only entity on the planet that can deliver on Owl's vampire problem - and let's face it, dragons are known to eat the odd thief. Owl retraces the steps of Mr. Kurosawa's ancient thief from Japan to Bali with the help of her best friend, Nadya, and an attractive mercenary. As it turns out, though, finding the scroll is the least of her worries. When she figures out one of Mr. Kurosawa's trusted advisors is orchestrating a plan to use a weapon powerful enough to wipe out a city, things go to hell in a handbasket fast...and Owl has to pick sides.

Supernatural meets Indiana Jones!

Loved this book! Great characters & lots of action! You get a wide range of supernatural beings and the archeology and adventure of Indiana Jones! What more could you ask for? A trained, vampire attacking cat? Well you get that too! Can't wait to listen to the next book!

What did you like best about this story?

The story is written in the manner that reminds me of Sam Spade, (if it was written by Darynda Jones). It's gritty, funny, has a few wtf parts and is written so well that I had a hard time putting it down. If you like tough women that have a chronic case of smart-assidness then you'll like this book.


What does Christy Romano bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Christy has the smart-ass tone down pat for this character. It made this story just that much better. She does a pretty decent Russian and Japanese accent but she's got Naga's down pat though


Any additional comments?

Look I took a chance with this author for I had never heard of her and I was very happy with what I read/heard
