Sequel News: The Burning Bush (Santeria Habitat #2) By Kenya Wright

During the spring, I had a chance to read a really amazing darker urban fantasy, which put the urban in fantasy, for sure. This book was FIRE BAPTIZED by Kenya Wright. I'm totally behind on my not-tour-related reviews, but I fully intend on sharing my feelings of this book before the end of the autumn. Why? Did I mention this book was amazing? It had not-white characters! It had shapeshifters! It had a protagonist that was college-age! Basically, some of the things that I have been craving in a good YA/adult cross-over urban fantasy. Not only that, the voice (that illusive voice) was compelling and real.

Kenya Wright has just announced that the sequel, THE BURNING BUSH, is available. I definitely intend to continue with this series. Haven't heard of FIRE BAPTIZED or read it yet?

Since the 1970s humans have forced supernaturals to live in caged cities. Silver brands embedded in their foreheads identify them by species: a full moon for Vampires, a crescent moon for Shifters, a pair of wings for Fairies, and the list goes on, for each supernatural species has been tagged and categorized by humans.

Lanore Vesta is marked with a silver X, the brand of Mixbreeds, second-class citizens shunned by society. She stays to herself, revealing her ability to create fire only during emergencies. All she wants to do is graduate college and stop having to steal to survive. But when she stumbles upon a murder in progress, she catches the attention of a supernatural killer. Now all she wants is to stop finding dead bodies in her apartment.

Enlisting help from her Were-cheetah ex-boyfriend MeShack and a new mysterious friend named Zulu, she is steered through the habitat’s raunchy nightlife. But their presence sometimes proves to be more burden than help, as they fight for her attention.

While the corpses pile up, and the scent of blood fills the air, Lanore is left wondering: will she find the psycho or die trying?

Then go check out THE BURNING BUSH (SANTERIA HABITAT #2), now available.

After Dante Bottelli’s slaughter of Vamp-owned Mixbreeds, Lanore and Zulu execute a well-planned attack that hits Dante where it hurts the most—his pockets. But their attack triggers a chain of unfortunate events, and allows Detective Rivera to blackmail Lanore.

Rivera forces Lanore to investigate his case, the Burning Bush Murders. Someone's been tying girls to bushes and setting them on fire. Lanore must find the killer, or Rivera goes public with his information.

Meanwhile, Dante won't take his defeat without a fight. He counterattacks and the Santeria habitat, as well as Lanore’s and Zulu’s lives, are changed forever.
