Nicole D. Peeler does not have any cats, kids or husbands. Instead, she vexes literature in her new role as an assistant professor of Popular Fiction at Seton Hill University, Pennsylvania.
The fourth Jane True installment (after Tracking the Tempest) brings even more sass, snark, and supernatural action. Jane and her lover, Anyan, get just one day of resting at home in Rockabill after a life-threatening, life-changing adventure before being attacked again. Using all her powers to save them, Jane falls into a coma for a month, awakening to a transformed Rockabill: its inhabitants fall into zombie-like trances, graffiti is everywhere, and strangers are lurking about. Jane and her friend Blondie must find a mythological force hidden in the town and open the four locks guarding it before it falls into the wrong hands. There's enough plot to make a satisfying novella, padded out mostly by Jane's frequent asides and scenes of sexual tension between her and Anyan. (Aug.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
