The Scent of Shadows
by Vicki Pettersson

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 demons are hunting Joanna, and the powerful shadows want her for their own . . .

my thoughts~
I had read The Scent of Shadows a few years ago, along with the next couple of books, but then I just forgot about the next one since it was so long before it was released. Thanks to Net Galley, I have the opportunity to read the upcoming book, The Neon Graveyard, and I wanted to revisit the series. I'm so glad I started this over! There so many details that I had forgotten! Like almost all of them! But as I read, the details would return just before I would read it! Joanna becomes The First Sign of the Zodiac and exactly midnight on her 25th birthday. Unfortunately, for Joanna it's her last birthday. After her sister is killed by a Shadow agent, Joanna is 'enlisted' into the Las Vegas division of Zodiac Troop, Division 175. It isn't everyday you learn your a superhero.
I can't wait to start reading the next book in the series, The Taste of Night!
