"a new name to add to your must read list, Vivi Anna!"
There has been a ritualistic murder in Necroplis and the
Otherworld Crime Unit (OCU) has been called in to solve
it. The head of the unit, Cain Valorian, realizes right
away that this investigation is going to be different than
any he has ever seen. The young woman that was murdered
was human; Cain and his unit are not.
When it became known that lycanthropy and magic are real
the government decided to make the Otherworld city,
Necroplis. The city is well guarded behind a facade of a
military base that does not show up on any map. Cain is
ordered to work with a human, Eve Grant from the nearby
San Antonio crime lab to help solve the case. Every member
of the OCU has been wronged by a human before and
therefore do not trust humans. Cain realizes that he needs
Eve's help to solve the case and stop any turmoil between
Necroplis and the humans.
Eve is scared and wondering why she volunteered to work
this case as she is entering to meet the chief of OCU, a
vampire. Once she sees Cain, she is instantly attracted to
him and has carnal thoughts about him. She had read about
the OCU before she came, but was not prepared for what it
meant to meet and work with vampires, witches and a lycan.
While Cain and Eve try to fight their growing attraction,
Eve and the rest of the OCU team must learn to work
together and trust one another in order to find the killer
Fans of Laurell K. Hamilton (early work), Kim Harrison,
and Charlaine Harris now have a new name to add to their
must read list, Vivi Anna! She has composed a fabulous
world in Blood Secrets with a smooth flowing story line,
excellent primary and secondary characters, action and
romance. After reading this book it will have you asking
Vivi Anna to please write more about the OCU. I for one
would love to read about Lyra (especially more about her
grandmother) and Jace.
