The Scent of Shadows

By Vicki Pettersson

The first book of a refreshing new urban fantasy series from ex-Las Vegas showgirl, Vicki Pettersson. For fans of the hit tv show Heroes. Two groups of superheroes – one light, one shadow – fight for control of sin city, Las Vegas.

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 shadows are hunting Joanna, and they want her for their own . . .
