PACK OF STRAYS: a look at the cover art and what to expect from Dana Cameron’s next Fangborn novel

April 8th will see PACK OF STRAYS, the second book in the Fangborn series, land in stores.

Archaeologist Zoe Miller has only recently learned she is Fangborn, a secretive race of werewolves, vampires, and oracles dedicated to protecting humanity. But after she discovered and opened Pandora’s Box, the fabled item has lived up to its myth, and for Zoe and her friends, all hell has broken loose. Now she’s on a double mission: to prevent a politician from revealing the existence of the Fangborn and to foil the diabolical plans of the powerful Order of Nicomedia, a group dedicated to eradicating her kind.

But Zoe is also noticing disturbing changes in herself—new and unique abilities. Her visions are intensifying too, drawing her to faraway places to find more artifacts like the bejeweled bracelet embedded in her wrist.

In a world of dizzying shifts, who can Zoe trust? For while her former lover wants to turn her in, her former adversary seems dedicated to helping her mission succeed…

The second novel in Dana Cameron’s Fangborn series, PACK OF STRAYS takes the fast-paced adventure of SEVEN KINDS OF HELL to a whole new level.

I asked author Dana Cameron to tell us about her work on the book and what was her favorite things about writing it.

“Here’s what I love about writing the Fangborn: I get to mess with time and space and human history. Those are very big no-no’s when it comes to academic archaeology, but in fiction, especially urban fantasy? It’s practically a requirement. In exploring the world of the Fangborn vampires, werewolves, and oracles, I have so much fun interweaving their history with human history.”

What can readers expect this time around?

PACK OF STRAYS picks up where SEVEN KINDS OF HELL leaves off, with Zoe dealing with new, unreliable, and unexplained powers. She’s on a quest to find more Fangborn artifacts, but unfortunately, so is the Order of Nicomedia (who first appeared in “The Serpent’s Tale”). The Order’s mission? To learn the secrets of the Fangborn and use them to wipe them from the planet. With Fangborn politics escalating, alliances shattering, and an increasingly complicated love life, Zoe’s got more than just the Order to worry about as she digs into the Fangborn past.”
