I am very happy to host a blog tour stop for Faith Hunter's latest book, Flame In The Dark....
About FLAME IN THE DARK:Nell Ingram has always known she was different. Since she was a child, she’s been able to feel and channel ancient powers from deep within the earth. When she met Jane Yellowrock, her entire life changed, and she was recruited into PsyLED—the Homeland Security division that polices paranormals. But now her newly formed unit is about to take on its toughest case yet.
A powerful senator barely survives an assassination attempt that leaves many others dead—and the house he was visiting burns to the ground. Invisible to security cameras, the assassin literally disappears, and Nell’s team is called in. As they track a killer they know is more—or less—than human, they unravel a web of dark intrigue and malevolent motives that tests them to their limits and beyond.
FLAME IN THE DARK (Soulwood #3)

Excerpt FLAME IN THE DARK: Part Thirteen
I looked at Occam and crossed my arms over my chest. Yummy was watching the byplay with the same kind of amusement that a human might display when watching monkeys in a zoo.
Occam looked around. Sighed. “Right. Okay. I see.” He handed me a camera. “Try anyway.”
I threw the blanket back at him and sat on the cement edge of a planter. Placed the camera on the ground prominently in front of me as if it had a purpose. I dug my fingers through six inches of mulch and stuck them into the soil. It was good- quality potting soil mixed with top soil. There was a nice concentration of nutrients. One spot where some stupid human had dumped in a cup of coffee. I boosted the tree, just in case the winter was long and cold, and withdrew my hand. “Nothing. But why do they think the shooter stood here? The rounds probably popped off the roof.” I looked up. So did Occam and Yummy, who pursed her mouth.
She laced her fingers together, bent her knees, and said, “Come on, cat. I’ll boost you up and you can pull me up. Maggot can wait down here.”
I spotted Rick in a group of suited men and women, mostly Secret Service and Ffeds. “I’ll be eavesdropping over there.” Occam didn’t acknowledge my comment. Without looking, he took a running start and bounded into Yummy’s hand. The vampire tossed him up and forward and he touched down on the roof with cat grace. In his cat form that leap would have been easy all on his own.
Yummy backed up and raced in, leaping onto the planter and pushing off with one foot. Occam reached out over the edge and grabbed her arm, pulling her up. They collided, fell out of sight, and hit the roof.

I love Faith Hunter's Jane Yellowrock books and I am becoming a huge fan of this series as well. Nell Ingram kicks butt in a different way than Jane does but it is no less powerful and in the end I think it is safe to say you don't want to mess with Nell Ingram. Fans of this series will be pleased to hear that several of the more troublesome problems Nell is dealing with are resolved while the romance angle continues to develop. Like the Jane Yellowrock books, I have found the rich character development to be a huge plus. Team and family continue to grow in this one and the powerful and stunning conclusion will leave you breathless. The element of mystery is strong and I didn't anticipate the revealing of that mystery at all. I give Flame In The Dark 5 stars.
