GENRE: Urban Fantasy
Spook catcher Sierra Fox has paid her debt to the Spook Catcher Council. Life should be easier. Except everything is going to the dogs – or demons, as the case may be. Her boyfriend Jonathan is acting like a possessive jerk. She can’t stop drooling over Jason, her hunky, injured houseguest, who turns out to be a werewolf. To top it off, something seriously freaky is happening to spooks all over Sydney. Prime example: a ghost who wants to hire her fades while inside her office, and soon they’re disappearing all over Sydney – sucked out of existence.
When Sierra finds out who’s behind it, it’s more than just her own life at stake. As the problems continue to mount, keeping her head above water is a daily battle. Add a stalking, feral animal who is determined to take a piece out of her hide—literally – and life is anything but a bunch of buttercups. Especially when those around her start dropping their façades. Eventually, she knows, the dust will settle. Only this time, life as she knew it may never be the same. Warning: Spook catching: Do not try this at home, if you’re under eighteen, or under the influence. Must be prepared to fight off ghosts, demons, weird black dogs and sexy werewolves… Okay, maybe not the werewolf.
I quite like this cover, it has a grittiness to it that makes me think the story is dark too. The model looks fierce. Wouldn’t want to get on the wrong side of her! LOL The title font and colour works well with the overall image and the cityscape just finishes everything off, giving it a real urban feel.
She does look fierce! What awesome boots! With her pose, she’s looks a little bit cat-woman like. The background has a very dark and gritty style. Her outfit is super sexy, but tough at the same time. The knife and the fact she doesn’t seem to care that she’s balanced on the top of a building means you certainly wouldn’t want to mess with her as Carolyn says! The font used is quirky and kind of gothic, slightly comic-book-esque. Very eye catching.
