5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Detra Fitch TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 25 Dec 2003
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This time the setting is Chicago. Selena Crawford is a Chicago homicide detective. She is the unwilling companion of Istvan, Chief of the Enforcers. Istvan is considered "the Enforcers' Enforcer." He is the dhamphir. Due to the bond between vampire and companion, they cannot help but come into contact with each other. But they try their best to meet as rarely as possible.
The Law of the Blood states "A companion is a vampire's property. They may do with their companions as they will." It is a law that many companions want changed. But for a companion to even think of changing things is like an act of treason, with a high punishment. Even so, there are a few brave ones. They have an elite chat room where they secretly speak with each other and plan what they will do differently once they have grown fangs. None of them knows the real names of the others or where they reside. The ID of each is gender-less. No one speaks of what they do for a living. They vent about their "Friends" and make plans.
Selena and Istvan must join forces to investigate the murder of a vampire and maintain the secrecy of the vampire race. But when they find the killer and learn her motive, they find out that there is an even bigger threat and it hits even closer to home! Things are about to get very, very personal.
***** Outstanding! Author Susan Sizemore has outdone herself in this one! The story is well written, believable, and the main characters are so wonderful that I could not help but like them. There are even a few cameos, which I did not expect to happen so soon in this series. Highly recommended! *****

Format: Mass Market Paperback
The first two books in Susan Sizemore's Laws of the Blood series are quite good, but Companions is really something special. The dual protagonists are as dynamic as they are fascinating, the expanded commentary on Sizemore's unique fictional universe of vampires and companions is impressive and illuminating, and the action-packed storyline is a true page-turner. Mention of Istvan has been made in the previous books - whispers of his unparalleled prowess among the Enforcers of the vampire laws - and I must say he lives up to his reputation in spades. In Companions, we learn his remarkable story, but even Istvan, with all of his might, wisdom, and power, pales somewhat in comparison to Selena, the most unusual of vampire companions.
Istvan is a dhampir born over five centuries ago - he actually worked for Count Dracula for awhile. He hates vampires and has killed many over the centuries; even though he was turned into a vampire himself (a dangerous mistake rectified in the laws soon thereafter - there is no more formidable vampire killer than a dhampir who has been turned) and works ceaselessly to defend vampire law, he has always kept himself apart from a traditional vampire lifestyle. That includes the taking of a companion, a practice virtually all vampires engage in. A bit of deception, though, brought him together with Selena Crawford two years earlier; he has fought the bloodbond that was forged between the two, however, and pretty much left Selena alone. She herself both hates and likes the situation; while she wants nothing to do with Istvan, the bloodbond is a powerful force that cannot be defeated by even the strongest of personalities - and Selena happens to have one of the strongest personalities you will ever encounter.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is the first book in the series and it is very enjoyable. It is part of a series and the format is a little unusual in that each book has different protagonists, the main characters in one book are likely to get just a passing mention in the others.
This does take a little getting used to, but it is well worth perservering with. The proof is that the books are just as enjoyable when being read for a second time, and I have no doubt this will hold true for future readings as well.
This particular book tells the story of Istvan, The Chief Enforcer for the vampires. For Enforcer read Cop he ensures that the local vampires obey the Law, this is not human law with courts and jails, break vampire law and you will die.
The other main character is his human companion Selena who is a human cop, a homicide detective who comes from a family which possesses pyschic abilities in abundance, yes really. Their two worlds collide when a vampire is murdered and they both end up investigating the crime
This story is intriguing, because it stays away from all the usual vampire stereotypes, no silver bullets, they like garlic, and sunshine does not kill them. It is entertaining on both the fantasy and detective story levels, I thoroghly enjoyed it and I look forward to reading more by this author.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
This book is a juicy and tasty novel that whets the appetite for more works in this dynamite series. Susan Sizemore has created a believable new universe of the supernatural set in modern day America that will appeal to readers who like the works of Laurell K Hamilton and Tonya Huff. This supernatural romantic thriller is guaranteed to leave the reader hungering for the next work in this series. Also recommended: The Price of Immortlaity.
