Joanna Archer knows all about darkness. Raped at age 16, she's spent the last 9 years watching the dark side of humanity. By day she's an heiress and photographer in Vegas. By night she prowls the forsaken streets looking for revenge...and the chance to exorcise the demon within. Until a chance date turned horrific reveals a world beyond the bright lights and big action of Sin City - an otherworld filled with supernatural forces where Light and Dark war with each other. Only the brave members of the Zodiac - twelve men and women endowed with magical abilities - can keep evil at bay. And with a mysterious legacy from her mother and preternatural fighting skills, Joanna could be one of them...if she survives long enough. Because the demons are hunting Joanna, and the powers of darkness want her for their own. (bookcover)
First sign of the zodiac.
I really really liked this book. There is a lot of action and you don't get the usual overload of background information.
For me the character Joanna was very likeable. I liked the way she is a strong female with flaws (the kinda flaws you can understand)
This is a real good vs. bad story aka the good guys against the bad guys and Joanna is the person stuck in between. She is both and has to choose.
The plot of this book is (in my eyes) good and makes me want to read the next book.
