Her tattoo parlor, Stained, on Berkeley’s quirky Telegraph Avenue draws clients from all walks of life. Her work is also in high demand from the supernatural community and the undead.

With her raven familiar, Thorn’s been on the run all her adult life. Only she knows of the horrors in her past. Thorn only wants to practice her art of tattooing in peace.

"This is a great second book in the series. I love our heroine, she is tough and bad a**, just the way I like them! Se is just as kind, devoted and sweet in this one as he ended up being in the first. We find he has some "powers" as well and that makes him seem to mature before your eyes. Ready for the next!"
