Frost Moon – Spotlight & Review
Frost Moon by Anthony Francis
“In an alternate Atlanta where magic is practiced openly, where witches sip coffee at local cafes, shapeshifters party at urban clubs, vampires rule the southern night like gangsters, and mysterious creatures command dark caverns beneath the city, Dakota Frost’s talents are coveted by all. She’s the best magical tattooist in the southeast, a Skindancer, able to bring her amazing tats to life.
When a serial killer begins stalking Atlanta’s tattooed elite, the police and the Feds seek Dakota’s help. Can she find the killer on the dark fringe of the city’s Edgeworld? Among its powerful outcasts and tortured loners, what kind of enemies and allies will she attract? Will they see her as an invader, as a seducer, as an unexpected champion … or as delicious prey?

I recieved this e-book through LibraryThing Early Reviewers. FROST MOON is the first book in the Skin Dancer Series by Anthony Francis. I really liked this story! I have to say that I had some “heavy” stuff to deal with while I read this and I had a hard time putting it down to deal with being there in the moment. Does this make me a bad person or just a total book addict? What can I say, I’m a sucker for an engrossing book. I was still there to do what I could, so don’t go thinking that I completely shirked my responsibilities, but I definitely picked up my e-reader to keep reading whenever I got the chance!
Dakota Frost is a kick-a$$ character and unique in a genre filled with kick-a$$ protagonists! I was drawn in to the story and impressed by the great details involving tattooing as well. Anthony Francis has created a fascinating underground supernatural world that I’m looking forward to immersing myself in Blood Rock, book 2 in the series! A dark and gritty Urban Fantasy with rich characters, a great “hair-pin turns” plot, and enough tension and danger to keep you on the edge of your seat madly flipping pages to find out what happens.
