Best Book I've read in a while!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dying Bites (Bloodhound Files) (Mass Market Paperback)
I have to confess that this has been sitting on my bookshelf for a while. I can't even remember when I bought it but I recently was recommended the second book by Amazon and realised I hadn't actually read this. I read the back, and glanced over the reviews and reminded myself that if I'd previously started and abandoned it I could do the same again. I started it, yesterday and have just finished it. I haven't been able to put it down!
This is essentially a cop story, we've all read a few of them before. There are werewolves and vampires, nothing new about that. This book also has golems, which is a bit more unusual. But the real brilliance of this novel is that the heroine, Jace, is from our world, but the world the books are set in is a parallel universe where all these creatures and magic are out and about. The alternative history is very interesting and the fact that humans have ended up the minority species. This is such a completely new way of doing the paranormal cop story that I was completely thrilled to find it, even a bit late!! I'm just about to order any others in the series, what a find!!!!
