Author Jordan Summers is queuing for another hot series on bookshelves. Scarlet, the second book in her "Dead World" series, follows closely on the heels of Red. Blending romance and urban fantasy genres, this release brims with tantalizing animalistic activity and entertaining paranormal action.

Alpha is always a big role to play, but for someone filling in, the shoes can be a might too big for a proper fit. The Sheriff—one particularly favored Morgan Hunter, a.k.a. Alpha Werewolf—must go on a important undercover mission and has made Gina Santiago acting sheriff until his return. For a new werewolf and Nurian citizen, this new job can be more difficult and problematic than being stranded in the desert without food, water, or shelter.

Gina’s nose starts to twitch when mysterious bloody occurrences begin taking place around Nuria — and all evidence and insinuations point the finger of blame at her. Why would someone want to frame her? With the population eagerly siding against her, the possibilities appear to be limitless. Obviously being in favor with the Alpha werewolf means nothing to these underlings determined to string her up by her neck.

Unfortunately, a great enemy is waging war against Gina and systematically knocking her to pieces. Throw in the emotional traumas between Gina and her Alpha, and there won’t be much left when the smoke clears. Gina’s strength is caving under the pressure; it's only a matter of time before the fatal blow is struck.

Summers brings her superb plot to life with a whole slew of unique characters and a degree of viciousness that would even make the famed fictional Professor Moriarty quail. The many characters’ emotional and psychological issues and the ceaseless external dramas combine for one heck of a tumultuous ride. Scarlet finishes off with a pronounced projection as to the direction the third installment of the "Dead World" series, Crimson, is headed for its kick-off point.
