A vampire vendetta, a mysterious murder and a too many deadly cocktails. This urban fantasy got me hook line and sinker.
If the murderer you’re tracking is a vampire, then you want a vampire detective. Just maybe not this one.
It’s not that Jack Valentine is bad at her job. The youngest member of Oxford’s Seekers has an impressive track record, but she also has an impressive grudge against the local baron, Killian Drake.
When a human turns up dead on May Morning, she’s determined to pin the murder on Drake. The problem is that none of the evidence points to him. Instead, it leads Jack into a web of conspiracy involving the most powerful people in the country, people to whom Jack has no access. But she knows someone who does.
To get to the truth, Jack will have to partner up with her worst enemy. As long as she can keep her cool, Drake will point her to the ringleaders, she’ll find the murderer and no one else will have to die.
Body bags on standby.
Thanks to Josie Jaffrey for the ARC for an honest review.
Jack Valentine our leading lady is a temperamental seeker who is out for vengeance. She has penance for overindulging in deadly cocktails and is utterly stubborn when it comes to the person she wants reek vengeance on.
I found Jack to be a really refreshing character, she is good at her job but her personal life is all over the show. Which many of us can relate to. The supporting characters are a delight, I can’t wait to see how their stories evolve.
Urban Fantasies have been a hit or miss for me at time, but this one was everything I wanted. Strong character development, an interesting story line that isn’t predictable and not to mention the quality of right is superb.
Go on, you know you want to read it.
