Her Magic Will Get Under Your Skin. Her Story Will Fill Your Imagination Dakota Frost's Enthralling Saga Begins . . . In an alternate Atlanta where magic is practiced openly, where shapeshifters party at the urban clubs and vampires rule the southern nights like gangsters, where demure witches sip coffees at the local cafes and mysterious creatures command the dark caverns beneath the city, Dakota Frost's talents are coveted by all: She's the best magical tattoo artist in the southeast: a SkinDancer, able to bring her amazing tats to life. When a serial killer begins stalking Atlanta's tattooed elite, the police and Feds seek Dakota's help. Can she find the killer in the dark fringe of the city's magical Edgeworld? What kind of enemies and allies will she attract among the powerful outcasts and tormented loners, who see her as a threat, a seduction, an unexpected champion . . . or as delicious prey. FROST MOON is Book One of the SKINDANCER fantasy series by debut author Anthony Francis. Filled with unforgettable characters, spine-tingling action, scenes of sheer wonder, kinky rebellion and edgy love, FROST MOON is storytelling at its most classic, and Dakota Frost is an irresistible new star of fantasy fiction.

I can't say that I was overly keen on this book. It had some good places, but equally I did feel my mind wandering. I think mostly it's because I didn't really gel with the main character, this is really really important to me.
The first chapter was fine, but I found I didn't really feel that the story flowed enough after that. The plot and the synopsis sounded great, but the actually delivery was not up to my expectations.
I did at times have to put down this book and then pick it up again at a later date. I did feel about giving up on it about halfway but persevered. I'm pleased I did as I don't really like giving up on books; they have to be really dire for me to do that. It did pick up pace a little toward the ending, even that left me with a luke warm feeling. Things did get a little predictable in places too, not many surprises for me or plot twists.
As I said earlier I wasn't keen on the main character Dakota, but there were the odd few characters in the story that I did like; such as Cinnamon the Were-Tiger.
I don't honestly think I will be carrying on with the series. Shame really as it was such a promising book.
I was given a copy of this book for review purposes.
