Blade to the Keep. Lauren Dane
Review from Jeannie Zelos Book reviews.
As this is the second in a series, and I hadn't read the first I downloaded the Amazon sample as usual in this situation, so I could get some background info. What I hadn't bargained on was getting so hooked on the book I simply had to buy it, and read it before getting to this ARC. It was a fabulous read, and though I could have read this without knowing all that was in book one, it certainly heightens the enjoyment and understanding having that background. The price is excellent too for such quality writing and story line.
Anyway - on to this book. It picks up where book one leaves off, with Rowan now made the Liaison between Vampires and Hunters, and trying to get through an amendment to the existing Treaty. The last book brought forward a problem where the Vampires held some important information which Rowan, needed but they were not obliged to share, so she had to wait until permission was granted. That meant a very dangerous vampire was on the lose for longer than needed. She wants essential information to be mandatorily shared. As always though there are dissidents, and Rowan being they person she is, she makes enemies easily :) though she also has some really good and strong friends. This novel is set in her childhood home, the residence of The First, the man who brought her up and taught her to be what she is. He's also the person who killed her parents, and who she has seen only on occasions since she found that out.
The story is full of twists and turns, double dealing, danger with Vampires and Hunters alike harbouring a grudge against Rowan. Her vampire boyfriend ( can I call him a Boyfriend when he's 450 years old? Can't really think of another term though...

She is the vessel of a Celtic goddess. She is also a hunter and liaison between the vamps and humans. Clive who is the scion of Vegas accompanies Rowan to her first meeting to make changes to the vampire agreement. Fangs, magic, mayhem and dramatic spoiled humans abound.
A very good read, good balance of hot, intrigue and action. New book due Autumn this year. Am off to pre-order!

This second book in this gritty urban fantasy romance series is even better than book 1 “Goddess With a Blade”. Heroine Rowan has an important role to ensure the Treaty between the Vampire Nation and Hunter Corp, is accepted and she certainly is well suited for the job; not only is she the mortal vessel of the goddess Brigid and a Hunter, she has a unique insight into vampire life as the adopted daughter of The First (the original vampire). Yet there are humans and vampires alike who do not want this new Treaty accepted and some are tricky and powerful enough (or sometimes cleverly manipulated) to attempt to stop these negotiations by targeting Rowan.

Rowan’s relationships with The First and her vampire lover Clive are explored further, and more insight is given into Rowan’s rather brutal past as she revisits the home she was raised in and interacts with characters that impacted her formative years. There are also new enemies; one in particular that Brigid clearly knows and hates, from powerful vampires to petty human bureaucrats.

There are some great moments of action (usually involving Rowan smashing her fist into someone’s face) but the romance between Rowan and Clive; although passionate, is fleeting and definitely takes a back seat to the negotiations taking place. There is a good level of dry humour, which offsets the level of violence and resulting bloodshed quite well, and a smart mouthed strong heroine that is determined to get her job done. The finale is dramatic and tense, and sets the scene well for book 3 “Blade on the Hunt” due for pub. this autumn.

This is the follow up to the popular Goddess With a Blade and yet again is set to delight fans if Ms Dsne. A paranormal series that is based around vampires and the humans known as Hunter Corporation who try to police them. War is brewing and it's vital that a treaty be signed between the a Vampire Nation and Hunter Corp but when it comes to vampires nothing is straightforward. After all unlike humans they have all the time in the world!
Rowan was raised at the Keep by Theo known as the First and oldest vampire. He's by nature hard and cruel but possessive of the young woman he sees as his adopted daughter. Rowan fled the vampire stronghold nearly fifteen years ago and has no real wish to return but her duty to humanity and Hunter Corps places her back there. Rowan is no ordinary human though as she carries the essence of a Goddess within her as well as strength and speed from vampire blood but more importantly she understands the vampire mindset and is a formidable opponent .
Many oppose the Treaty and Rowan seemingly treads in a minefield . The only bright spark on the horizon is her gorgeous man Clive but Clive is the vampire Scion of a North America and his first duty is the safety of his brethren. That doesn't mean he won't try to steer Rowan safely in the right direction though and sometimes that direction is in his arms!
Rowan will need her wits about her though as vampire politics can get very nasty, full of complicated rules were no slight goes unpunished. It looks as if Rowan has walked into a hotbed of treachery as intrigue is all around her. Some are openly antagonistic to the changes proposed but there are those who play their cards close to their chest. One thing is clear though death is coming to visit the Keep!
