"gets a big thumbs up from me"
Jace is dreaming one moment and in another reality the
next. Being ripped from her reality isn't easy and before
she can ask enough questions and get satisfactory answers
she finds herself in a hospital bed. It isn't long before
Jace finds out what has happened to her and starts putting
the pieces together, even if the full picture sounds and
looks like she is still dreaming.
The reality where Jace has been sucked into is one where
humans are the minority. David Cassius, the vampire head of
the NSA has brought Jace into their world to help solve a
series of gruesome murders on vampires and werewolves. In a
strange world that is very similar to her own on most
fronts, she still feels lost when asked to profile the kind
of person they are dealing with. After all she hasn't
worked with vamps, lycanthropes and golems before.
The insane serial killer is a threat to the NSA and they
have no past experience to help them. But Jace does.
Stranded in a reality where every full moon is a party,
Jace has to hunt down a fellow human before he brings the
entire planet to the brink of madness. Or she may never see
her own world again.
This first book in the Bloodhound Files is just amazing.
The whole alternative reality thing made me wonder if this
would be more sci-fi than paranormal but the author has hit
my favourite genre right on the head and has left me with
yet another series to add to my must read list.
Jace is a great main character, even though she accepts the
whole vamp, were and golem thing a little too easily for my
liking. Scary, bloody and full of dark humour this has got
to be one of my favourite debut novels this year. This
whole new fresh fun angle on the typical urban paranormal
story gets a big thumbs up from me and I am really looking
forward to the second book, Death Blows, when it comes out.
