I was so excited when I saw this cover reveal on Facebook a few weeks ago because it meant that Adrian Phoenix finally had a new book coming out. I enjoyed her Maker's Song series and the sixth book just kept getting pushed back. I think her Hoodoo series has a lot of potential but the third book in that series seems to have been postponed as well.
Thinning the Herd looks like it's completely different from either of those. It sounds kind of like Ghostbusters with werewolves. It's either going to brilliant, or really bad. But it's only $1.99 to pre-order on Kindle right now so I definitely think it's worth taking a chance on. What do you think of this blurb?
Release: January 4, 2015

From the New York Times bestselling author of A Rush of Wings and The Maker’s Song series, a humorous, action-packed urban fantasy about a werewolf pack and an animal control officer in way over his head!
Someone is picking off fortune tellers and hippies in Oregon, snatching them out of their Birkenstocks mid-stride. And when the legend himself, Hal Rupert, Animal Control Officer, gets a whiff of the mystery, he knows he’s the man to solve it. In between proudly wrangling out-of-control cats and dogs, he’s noticed a peculiar uptick in another sort of animal…werewolves.
Hal infiltrates the country fair to investigate the disappearance of the flower children. But his real priority is protecting the love of his life, Desdemona Cohen, whose long purple tresses and black-glossed lips captured his heart the moment he first saw her standing behind the register at Hot Topic. Desdemona may have nicknamed Hal “Creep,” but he’s determined to win her heart. And, you know, save everyone else, too.
