Description"Addictive, sassy, sexy, funny, intense, brilliant." Praise from Bitten By Books for FROST MOON, Book One in the Skindancer series. Book Two in the Skindancer series. Dakota Frost is back, and the ink is about to hit the fan-again. Graffiti comes to life in the dark heart of Atlanta's oldest cemetery, slaying one of the city's best loved vampires before the eyes of his friend Dakota Frost. Deadly magick is at work on the city's walls, challenging even the amazing power of Dakota's tattoos to contain it. The hungry, graffiti magick loves to kill, and the Edgeworld is no longer safe from its own kind. Dakota begins a harrowing journey to save those she loves and to discover the truth behind the spreading graffiti-even if that truth offends the vampires, alienates the werekin and creates police suspicion of her every action. Saving Atlanta may cost her everything, including custody of her "adopted" weretiger daughter, Cinnamon. But failure is not an option. If the graffiti isn't stopped, Cinnamon could be the next victim. Epic Award winner Anthony Francis writes the Skindancer series while working fulltime for "that famous search engine whose name begins with a 'G'." Visit him at http: //dakotafrost.com.

Reviews for Blood Rock
Excellent Urban Fantasy!
Wow, this was a quick read! Fast moving, quirky and so much fun to read - this book can definitely be a stand-alone one. I read "Frost Moon" few weeks ago, but I can say it's not necessarily to read it beforehand if you don't want to. And look at the Cover - I love it! Sets the mood so well for the book!
I still love seeing Dakota handle Cinnamon, it's probably my favorite relationship throughout the two books. Her "becoming" a mother for self-proclaimed were-tigger is so much fun to read!
Don't get me wrong I love seeing her in a more romantic mood as well with not one but two interests! Of course that can never last which makes reading the book even more fun.
And the suspence and invetigating well I'm a sucker for well written mystery getting resolved, and adding vampires, weres and magic to that - sold!
Francis has a way about his writing that is just refreshing and intriguing, he has created a world of unique vampires and weres and isn't shy about making Dakota appreciate the female form as well.
I love Dakota and definitely liked this book! So wither you want to check out "Frost Moon" first or just read Blood Rock, I recommend them both. by Niina C
Not as exciting as the first book, but still a great read
Having really enjoyed the first book in this series, I was keen to read more about Dakota Frost.
On the whole, I was pleased with this second instalment. I still enjoyed Dakota's character and I still think the ideas behind the world she lives in are original and fresh. On the negative side, I also still found Cinnamon annoying - but I think that's just my reaction to her grammar more than anything else.
For me this book didn't quite have the spark of the first one though. In Frost Moon, I was riveted and couldn't wait to turn each page and read on. With Blood Rock, there were sections where I found my attention drifting and I wasn't as involved in the story as I had been previously.
That said, this was not a bad story, it just didn't hold my interest quite so much as the first book. Still, I was keen to see how it would end and I liked the general story arc and the conclusion. I thought there was a nice balance between continuing characters and new additions and the world-building remained strong.
If you enjoyed the first book, then I think you'll appreciate this one. For those new to the series, I would recommend starting with Frost Moon before moving on to this one.
I received this book as a free e-book ARC from NetGalley. by Nicola Markus
