The Breaking is part of The Skinners series.
The Skinners are a hidden group who have battled monsters for centuries. They are not happy about being targeted by the "good guys" for prison, torture and virtually dissected to study their abilities. The bad guys have infiltrated the Skinners and the survival of mankind is poised on the edge of apocalypse. But what is the terrible force powering the monsters and hunters alike? If they don't find out and stop the carnage, it is lights-out for the world.
The action is non-stop and bloody. The monsters are unique, the characters well-drawn and mystery abounds. Will humanity survive? Will horror fans survive not reading the series? If they like Jim Butcher and Laurell K. Hamilton, they'll have to have the series. So get the plastic out and enjoy. ~~ Pam Allan
