Teeth of the Beast is another of the Skinners series.
For centuries, the Skinners have been the protection from the monsters in the shadows but now a pestilence is raging among the monsters. But rather than a boon for the Skinners, they must find the secret of the mud flu. A nightmare of destruction and blood sacrifice is coming, unless the Skinners can stop it, but the Government is busy catching and torturing them - the only people who can save mankind.
This volume appears to be from last year's list so you may wish to combine it with Vampire Uprising.
Pelegramas has created a series of dark urban fantasies that are hard to put down. The protagonists, stressed and under pressure as they are, can function as super-heros who can think on their feet. This is a book and a series that deserves your attention as well as your money. Enjoy. ~~ Pam Allan
