As Bad Blood by L.A. Banks begins, we meet Sasha Trudeau and her fellow team members. She is a part of a unique group of 'beings' who are all soldiers for the U.S. government in this fictional world. Sasha and her team members are all connected to one another because they were supposedly attached by werewolves at some point in their lives; thus, becoming contaminated with werewolf virus. Being a Special Ops soldier for the government, Sasha is used to taking orders from her superiors and fully obeying them to contain the level of paranormal activity around the world. When her superiors send her on a mission without her team, Sasha does not understand why she has been separated from them but she still fulfills her duties. What happens on mission in Korea and once she returns home, will forever change her perception of the people she once trusted and obeyed.
Bad Blood is book one in the Crimson Moon Novels by L.A. Banks. Bad Blood is science-fiction meets paranormal and what a great combination the two make! This story continuously builds and lets the readers learn as main character, Sasha Trudeau learns of whom she truly is and of the dirty backhanded deals of the government. If readers are looking for a series that is exactly like Banks' Vampire Huntress Legends, then they will not find it here. The Crimson Moon Novels focus on werewolves, shadow wolves and the government. Though, there is one thing the two series have in common, besides the author, both are equally well-written and stunningly intriguing. Banks pulls the readers into the story throughout the book but towards the end, when certain secrets are revealed, readers will be left on the edge of their seats panting for more. With characters like Sasha Trudeau, Max Hunter, and secondary character currently known as Shogun, they definitely throw in some spice, kick, and punch.
For those interested in reading Bad Blood, which I recommend to all readers, I strongly suggest visiting the website for this book and the others that will follow in this series at [...] The website will explain the terminology used in the series.
