About the Author

Vicki Pettersson is the New York Times bestselling author of the Sign of the Zodiac novels, a six-book urban fantasy series set in her hometown of Las Vegas. Though she'll always consider that glittering dust bowl home, she now divides her time between Vegas and Dallas, where she's learning to like good Tex-Mex (easy) and the Dallas Cowboys (easier than you'd think).

Reviews

"From the one-damn-thing-after-another school of unputdownable books, The Scent of Shadows rockets into the air and explodes like fireworks, with nonstop bursts of action and imagination."--Diana Gabaldon on The Scent of Shadows
"The Scent of Shadows is a bold concept, skillfully developed. The ugly grit and intoxicating glitter of Vicki Pettersson's world of Las Vegas is the perfect mirror for her character, Joanna Archer, whose hard past flows into her unimaginably chancy future."--Kim Harrison on The Scent of Shadows
"Exceptional. Mystery, crime scene drama, and more than enough romance to keep the heart pumping blend seemlessly into an enthralling read that kept me glued to the pages. I can't wait for the sequel."--Kim Harrison
"A stylish, atmospheric mash-up of rockabilly and angelic affairs quickly reveals itself to be so much more: THE TAKEN proves that Pettersson is not afraid to explore the darkest corners of the human heart - and that her gift for redemption is unsurpassed."--Sophie Littlefield
"A delectably dark paranormal thriller. I've always been a fan of Pettersson's work, but she knocks it out of the park with this one."--Kelley Armstrong
"Pettersson's amazing new series is off to a rocking start with this compelling read."--RT Book Reviews (top pick)
"Intriguing mix of paranormal, romance and mystery with just enough suspense!"--Suspense magazine
"A sure bet for urban-fantasy readers of all types, but especially fans of Carrie Vaughn, Jim Butcher, and P. N. Elrod."--Booklist
"Pettersson hits every note in the familiar duet of a 'reticent, complicated, darkly sexy man' and a luscious, plucky 'girl reporter'.... The resulting irresistibly good yarn proves that there's still plenty of room for brilliant innovation in urban fantasy."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
