Blood Dreams is a continuation of the series of books about a Special Crime Unit made up of people with psychic abilities. They work as a group within the FBI. This is a great series and this book continues the fight against evil with the main character, Dani Justice learning to control her abilities while being hunted by the killer. The plot is tight, a hunter, killer who has killed eleven women in Boston and gotten away with the crimes makes his first mistake by killing the daughter of a US Senator. The killer then moves out of Boston and is followed by the Special Crime Unit and it's civilian counterpart, Haven. Now the hunt is on for the killer and all the while he is hunting Dani and he can do this because he too is Psychic and can get into her mind.
The pace of the book is fast and it is a real page turner. But, I could not give this book five stars because I think that the violence is too graphic. This was not true in her other books and I think they were better for that.

when this series first started many many years ago, it was enthralling. we were introduced to Cassie in "stealing shadows" & Miranda now Bishop's wife in "out of the shadows". these were the beginning of the Bishop paranormal series, and some were very good, but i feel that the last couple have just become a bore.
In "blood dreams",i thought the characters were just plain boring, these people are supposed to have the best paranormal abilities on earth, yet in this book, no-one can quite get their act together. some characters were just a waste of time & some were just not played out enough.
And overall, the storyline of this serial killer always getting away is just plain annoying, - this special crimes unit are not really that special any more are they! - they've been after this guy for ages & i quite frankly am sick & tired of him.
Can we please get back to the way this series started out, with a good fashioned thriller, with the added element of the spooky please.

Kay Hooper produces unbelievable monsters and makes you believe in them and wouldn't a physic task force such as Bishop's be wonderful here? When you start reading you soon find that you know the little town and you feel for the residents who all seem so familiar. You find yourself begging that victim not to go to the door, or leave the house or look out of the window, whatever, as you know what is likely to be waiting for them. Fortunately the goodies win in the end and another monster meets his Nemesis.
