#1, Soul Dance
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
1700s Egypt is a melding pot for magic-wielders of all kinds. Vampires hold court, staying one step ahead of the priests and priestesses who want them dead. Shifters keep to themselves while gypsy caravans roam the Nile from north to south and back again telling fortunes, casting Tarot cards, and stealing from the gadjos.
Tairin Jabari was born in a caravan and has always believed she's Romani. Why wouldn't she? Her mother and father never suggested otherwise. The Rom have harsh rules. When Tairin's first shift catches her unaware at thirteen, her father disappears, and the elders move with deadly speed to punish her mother for mating outside the blood.
Hurt, lost, confused, and fearing for her life, Tairin runs away, leaving her mother's smoking funeral pyre behind. Desperately unprepared for life outside her protected caravan, she and her wolf face hard choices.
This is the first book in the Soul Dancer series. The book should not be read as a standalone as Tarin's story continues in the next book. There is violence.
The book blurb adequately describes the storyline so I'm not going to repeat that info here. The author did a great job of explaining both Romani and shifter culture and how Tarin finds herself traveling alone. The storyline will keep you guessing what twists and turns will be revealed next. It definitely kept me riveted.
I look forward to reading the rest of this series!
