Outfoxed (The Fox Witch #1) by R.J. Blain
ABOUT THE BOOK
Death is a way of life outside of the safety of Inner Tulsa, and Jade means to keep flipping Mother Nature off until old age claims her. With one eye always on the sky, the last thing she needs is a pack of bounty hunters out for her living head. With no idea of why anyone would want her, her wits might keep her free, assuming she can resist the charming lures of Sandro, one of the men out to claim her as his own.
Left with the choice of being the evening snack of a tornado or taking shelter with the bounty hunter, she does what she does best: she lives on the edge.
Striking a bargain with the handsome bounty hunter buys her another day of life, but it also dumps her into the heart of a sinister plot, one meant to enslave the residents of the storm-tossed city—and the others brave and foolish enough to call the Alley home.
Magic is afoot in 2043 Tulsa, Oklahoma. Jade Tamrin, a fox shifter and a witch is running from deadly tornadoes that will take her life and determined bounty hunters who will take her freedom. Armed with her vixen-like savviness and cunning, witchy scavenging techniques, and a sword of justice named Peace, she is on a mission to find out who is behind the tornadoes and destruction and who wants her bad enough to pay $100,000 for her bounty.
Jade is resourceful and clever and apparently very trendy for a fox. Most people don’t even like vixens, but she’s smart and her reputation for evading bounty hunters has caught someone’s attention back East. They want to auction her off as an uncontested courtesan to a wealthy family to secure an heir for the family line. So she makes a deal with an ethical bounty hunter named Sandro who saves her life and will do anything to keep her safe.
So the series begins with a strong and independent heroine, a mysterious and protective hero, and a whole lot of twisters and turns that kept this reader reading into the night. If you like dark and magical worlds with lively and intriguing characters, give this book a try.
Thank you to Ms. Blain for giving me the opportunity to read this book with no expectation of a positive reivew.
