With hexes in their holsters and spells in their saddlebags, Gracie Boswell's posse is on the hunt for supernatural outlaws. Ornery as a rattler, and just as dangerous with her charmed pistol, Gracie is settling into a cautiously friendly routine with her new partners, Sam Carson and Levi Boone. When Carson's hometown sends out word begging for bounty hunters to handle a calamitous shapeshifter, Gracie knows they're doomed to accept the job. The bounty is everything they usually handle: it's personal, it's dangerous, and no one else in their right mind would ever go after it. Gracie's posse soon ends up in the business of sorting truth from lies, however, as the local shapeshifters and fae fling accusations at one another. A supernatural gang war is brewing—and they've accidentally inserted themselves right in the middle of it. USA Today best-selling author Liza Street adds a thrilling new installment to her western gothic series. Pick up your copy of Blood Beast and join the posse for another wild ride through the dark and dangerous west!
