Review - When Blood Calls
Sara Constantine is one of the country’s most tenacious prosecuting attorneys—and she’s just secured a well-earned promotion. At first she’s thrilled. Then she finds out her new job involves prosecuting vampires and werewolves. And nothing prepares Sara for the shock she receives when she meets the first defendant she’ll be trying to put away: Lucius Dragos, the sexy stranger with whom she recently shared an explosive night of ecstasy.
When Lucius Dragos kisses the beautiful woman sitting next to him at the bar, he’s only hoping to blend into the crowd and avoid the perceptive gaze of the man he’s following…and planning to kill. But what starts as a simple kiss to secure his cover ignites into a fierce hunger that leads to an all-consuming passion. Charged with murder, Luke knows Sara will do whatever it takes to see him locked away—unless he can convince her that he’s not the monster she thinks he is. And that might mean making the greatest sacrifice a vampire can make.
Wow. It is a great start to a new series. Sara is a fast rising prosecutor who gets offered a great promotion. It just involves some slight changes in what she has always believed. Vampires, werewolves and the like so exist and those are now the cases she has to deal with.
Luke is a vampire Sara had a one-night affair with and who she now cant get out of her head and just happens to be in deeply involved in her first case.
The story had action, suspense, and romance. And they all blended together perfectly. Its a very interesting world that was created here. Very similar to what we consider normal but with the added effect of what type of creature really did commit those crimes we see everyday on the news.
I really enjoyed reading this and finding out about Sara, Luke and the world they live in and am looking forward to more Shadow Keeper books.
Its released today, August 31, definitely go and pick this one up. I really cant wait for When Pleasure Rules, I only wish it was coming out before September 28th.
