Book Tour: Rift in the Soul (A Soulwood Novel #6) by Faith Hunter with an excerpt and a giveaway

Rift in the Soul
Series: Soulwood
by Faith Hunter
Blurb:
Nell Ingram and her team face a dire, supernatural evil in this newest thrilling paranormal procedural in the New York Times bestselling Soulwood series.

Nell Ingram draws her powers from deep in the earth, and uses them to help Psy-LED, the Psychometric Law Enforcement Division, which solves paranormal crimes. When a local vampire calls to report a dead body on her compound, Nell knows she and her team have to be ready for anything.

But the dead body is just the beginning of a mystery that involves supernaturals of all kinds, including some of the most powerful vampires in the country. As Nell gets closer to the truth, she begins to understand that the perpetrator is tracking her too—and that there is something personal about this crime. Something with roots that go almost as deep as those in Soulwood.




Excerpt

Ming of Glass popped across the counter faster than I could see and threw her arms around me, hugging me. I went stiff and still and forgot to breathe until she unwrapped from me and opened the wine fridge.
“You requested my presence,” I said, my voice breathy, not the firm tone I wanted. “About a dead body.”
She flapped her hand at me, pulled out a different bottle from the one Aya had touched, and opened it with vampiric speed using a steel corkscrew I hadn’t seen her pick up. She tilted up the bottle and drank. When she lowered the bottle, she focused on the two men. “Put them away.” She pointed the bottle at their weapons. “You two. Go to the front room. Maggoty Girl. You will come with me.” Ming tottered away and pushed through two doors that swung closed behind her, like doors in an old-fashioned western.
“Ingram,” FireWind said softly. “Video. Now.”
“Oh. Right.” Ming was acting strange. Everyone would want to see and hear. I turned my cell to record and tucked the cell into my upper jacket pocket, giving the camera a good view. We had already checked comms, so we had an audio recording and now video backup.
After a last glance at the bosses, I pushed open the doors, following our hostess, revealing a different small parlor from the one I had seen before. Ming was sitting in a puffy chair in front of a gas fire, the flames turned down low but putting off heat. She tilted the bottle up again and drank. I walked into the room. The doors swung closed behind me.
Ming of Glass pointed at the chair to her side and I sat gingerly, on the edge. There was a thick rug beneath my chair and the chair had no exterior wooden parts, nothing I could draw power from.
“Maggoty Girl. What have you done to my scions. They are walking into the sun. Three burned at dawn today. Two the day before.”
“I haven’t done anything,” I said carefully, remembering the circles on the river side of the property. Walking into the sun was a term vampires used when they killed themselves at dawn, letting the sun burn them to death. “No one in PsyLED knows what’s happening, only that there have been reports of Mithrans across the country acting—” I stopped. Not crazy. Not as if they were all in the midst of mental breakdowns. Either might get my head ripped off. “Acting unlike their usual selves. I did nothing at all, not to anyone.”
