The Scent of Shadows

The Scent of Shadows

Book 1: The Signs of the Zodiac

When she was sixteen, Joanna Archer was brutally assaulted and left to die in the Nevada desert.

By rights, she should be dead.

Now a photographer by day, she prowls a different Las Vegas after sunset – a grim, secret Sin City where Light battles Shadow – seeking answers to whom or what she really is … and revenge for the horrors she was forced to endure.

But the nightmare is just beginning – for the demons are hunting Joanna, and the powerful Shadows want her for their own…

What people are saying...

“[It] came out of nowhere and slapped me silly. Then it lingered days after I closed the cover….Vicki Pettersson is a new voice that needs to be heard.”

– NYT Bestselling author Kim Harrison

“From the one-damn-thing-after-another school of unputdownable books, [it] rockets into the air and explodes like fireworks, with nonstop bursts of action and imagination.”

– NYT Bestselling author Diana Gabaldon

“The forces of Light and Dark battle over Las Vegas in this very exciting series debut … read at your own risk – it’ll keep you up past your bedtime.”

– NYT Bestselling Author Charlaine Harris

“Moody, fast-paced…blends fantasy, comic book superheroism and paranormal romance, but holds no promise of a happily-ever-after…. Imaginative…. [Readers] will embrace Pettersson’s enduring, tough-as-nails heroine and anticipate gleefully the next volume.”

– Publishers Weekly

“Combining comic-book adventures, astrology and a war between light and shadow, Pettersson’s stunning debut is an attention grabber. Original, with a tough and tormented heroine, it delivers a complex new mythology as well as emotional drama and action galore. Pettersson is definitely a hot new star on the rise!”
