Author Stacey Jay (Dead on the Delta) releases the second book in her successful Annabelle Lee series, entitled “Blood on the Bayou”.  The fantasy series centers around a world where a terrorist attack has resulted in mutations in the Fey population.  The fairies who have always lived in harmony with humans have now turned deadly and are infecting people with their venom.  Most of the population is confined to cities behind iron gates, which the Fey have a tough time penetrating.  Annabelle Lee, who is one of the few people who is immune to fairy venom, works as an agent for the Fairy Containment and Control Bureau.

In “Blood on the Bayou”, Annabelle is called upon by her ex-lover, Hitch, to help him solve a murder and find a secret lab deep in the bayou which is producing chemical weapons and might have ties to the FBI.

“Blood on the Bayou” is witty and fast paced, with a heroine who is just this side of wrong, but wants so badly to be right.  The main character is relatable and funny and the story is peppered with action and romance.  Fans of the Supernatural fiction genre should be absorbed in this book that offers something for everyone.
“Blood on the Bayou” is currently available in paperback from Pocket Books and retails for $7.99 U.S.  Check with Amazon or your local bookseller to order.
