I’ve not read anything by this author before, mainly because his previous books are more in the epic fantasy genre, which I’m not really too fond of. However, this one sounds more like it’s in the urban fantasy genre, and it’s about angels… I do think the cover’s a bit crap though – for such a successful fantasy writer he really should have been given something better!
Mina can’t afford his interest, however. Horde blood runs through her veins, and becoming Rhys’s lover would destroy both her career and her family, yet the investigation prevents her from avoiding him.

To save them, Mina and Rhys must race across zombie-infested wastelands and treacherous oceans – and Mina discovers the danger is not only to her countrymen as she finds herself tempted to give up everything to the Iron Duke.

I do like books about shifters, I think it’s probably because I love the Mercy Thompson books so much. But, I came across this one and thought that it sounded like a good one.
