Brei, did you read Adrian Phoenix's other book? new series she is working on starts with Black Dust Mambo. I LOVE it almost as much as Makers Song!!!!

Carolyn F. | 182 comments Unholy Ghosts is a series that gets better each book and is pretty dark.

Omi | 9 comments I have not read the Makers Song/Night Huntress series but think that Diana Rowland has a very dark/gritty writing style and they are fantastic books that I really recommend. She has written the Kara Gillian series which has 4 books out so far. There is also the White trash zombie series which has 1 book so far.

The author has worked in the police and in a morgue as well as some other interesting jobs so when she writes about the darker side of life it is really believable.
