Review of Crossroads of Bones (Katie Bishop Series #1)

Katie Bishop would have taken her secret to the grave, 

but . . .

a bunch of fat cat society folks smelled her out and made her an offer she couldn't refuse.

Katie just wants to run her tattoo business quietly under the radar. But when a man walks into her shop and hands her a drawing of the same tattoo she's been dreaming about for weeks, things start to spin out of control. The last two people who tried to apply that tattoo are dead.

Only half human, it's her other half that an elite group wants to hire-a group of Savannah's more privileged citizens, including the city's reigning coven of witches.There's a rogue god on the loose, and Katie is the only one who can send him back to hell before he breaks open the crossroads and lets the underworld waltz right in-if he manages to get that deadly tattoo inked onto his back.

I had never heard of Luanne Bennett, but you can bet this won't be the last I read by her!

The main character, Katie, is a dragon shifter, which is not a new premise in urban fantasy, but the author somehow brings something fresh to it. It's a quick read with characters of dimension and complexity. She gives you enough of their history to peak your curiosity. 

She sets the world in Savannah, rich with characters of all manner of talents and abilities. The book ends with a big reveal and a bit of a cliffhanger to draw you into the second book. Can't wait to read it!

Disclosure: There is some violence and instances of non-consent that may not sit well with some.
