Killing Rites (The Black Sun's Daughter #4)
Author M.L.N. Hanover
Source: Publisher request
Genre Urban Fantasy
Length: Novel
Release date November 29,2011

Jayné Heller has discovered the source of her uncanny powers; something else is living inside her body. She's possessed. Of all her companions, she can only bring herself to confide in Ex, the former priest. They seek help from his old teacher and the circle of friends he left behind, hoping to cleanse Jayné before the parasite in her becomes too powerful.
Ex's history and a new enemy combine to leave Jayné alone and on the run. Her friends, thinking that the rider with her has taken the reins, try to hunt her down, unaware of the danger they're putting her in. Jayné must defeat the weight of the past and the murderous intent of another rider, and her only allies are a rogue vampire she once helped free and the nameless thing hiding inside her skin.

I don't normal take in a request for UF but I have been wanting to try this series for a while so this gave me a good chance to try it.

This is my first Urban Fantasy in a long time and I did enjoy reading it. I just wish it would have been a bit more kick butt action, but this book is where Jayne is in the crossroads between finding herself and dealing with the rider inside of her. So, it’s a bit more on the emotional side. I just wished the stinking priest would have left her and the rider alone and that goes for all of them, Grr.

I was very surprised that the fact this is a man author. I wouldn’t have know unless I looked it up so kudos goes to the author for writing a fabulous heroine.

This is book fourth book in the series although you can get by with reading as a stand alone I would  suggest that you start at the beginning especially if you really like UF but if you grab this one and start it the author make is easy to understand where Jayne is at this point.

I would recommend this to Urban Fantasy readers unless you really get into the kick butt action because this one is very slow in that area. As for paranormal romance reader I wouldn't recommend it.
