“Fire Baptized” Kenya Wright (book one of the habitat series)

       Since the dawn of the understanding of the preternatural presence of creatures who have evolved in a supernatural sense, those who have relentlessly taken on the mantle of eliminating them from our world, unwilling to share the terrain with these rather menacing, yet formidable crawlers of the night, have through the years countered such forces with an emissary of warriors, well-educated in the lore and legend of such monsters. When these perilous threats to our society as we know it are controlled, forced to live under our domain by force, the tide shifts in our favor. Caged within the walls of a catacombed city with identifiable physical strands of silver buried in their foreheads, each species is exposed for what they truly are, vampire, shifter, fairy and the rest. As second class citizens in society, they are openly shunned, and yet “Lanore” merely wants to go to school and give up a life of thievery in order to survive. However, life does not remain with such a simple will  after she witnesses a murder before her eyes and becomes embroiled with a supernatural killer. Her dream is now changed from wanting to learn in school to a release from the building body count. Carrying the full weight of such a burden upon her shoulders, all she sees is blood and more blood spattering the sky. Will the pathological murderer be destroyed or will she herself be thrown on the funeral pyre?

       “Kenya Wright” has laced her book with a well orchestrated, well written series of events penetrating the genre of the supernatural. The fiery characters and their attitudes expel more than a need to survive, they wish to dominate. And with that comes great responsibility. Especially if the gamble is kill or be killed…
