Product description


The Sweet Scent of Blood is one of my favorite reads of the past month. The fast pace of the plot and the fascinating cast of characters will give you a happy little vacation between two covers. (Charlaine Harris)

"The central mystery keeps you reading and promises some satisfaction." (Rhian Drinkwater SFX)

On the whole I found this debut novel was surprisingly assured and pleasingly engaging. Good fun on the whole though and nice to read a British style ¿Dresden¿ or perhaps a Rachel Caine. If you like those books and want a similar-yet-different perspective, this might be one for you. (SFFWORLD.COM)

The Sweet Scent of Blood is a strong start to the Spellcrackers.com series and an impressive debut novel. I can't wait to read more from this author. Afterall, with vampires in Leicester Square, trolls in New Scotland Yard and a surfeit of blood and magic, what¿s not to like? Fang-tastic! (LOVE VAMPIRES.COM)

"A refreshingly original debut novel in what promises to be a series worth following. As the details of the world unfold, it only grows more compelling, and it provides an excellent backdrop to a convoluted mystery plot, riddled with twists." (Ross Sutcliffe SCi FI NOW)

"[A] darkly comic spook show. This is funny, frothy and expertly set up." (Calum Waddel DEATHRAY)

Fun and pacy, the book's strong lead, particularly likeable policetroll, and array of twists and turns help to thoroughly immerse the reader into the superb and full-realised supernatural society. (LINCOLNSHIRE ECHO)
