Review:  My Blood Runs Blue by Stacy Eaton

Officer Kristin Greene has always felt that something was missing from her life. Although her job with the Fawn Hollow Township Police Department keeps her busy, she still feels like there is something else out there for her.

She soon finds herself investigating a homicide where a young woman has had her throat ripped out. When she has to give the death notification to the family, her investigative nature comes out fast and strong when the parents seem too accepting of their daughter's death and make comments that just don't fit.

When the family requests the assistance of the VMF Securities, Kristin is confused that they would think a security company could assist with the murder investigation. When Julian and Alexander arrive she quickly finds herself being pulled into a love triangle that has been going on longer then she has been alive. Why do they look at her as if they know her? And why do they keep talking about Calista?

Join Kristin as she fights to learn the truth about the recent murder, the seductive and blood drinking men that have entered into her life and the real truth about herself.

I received this book for free from Publisher Gifted in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

We here at Fang Freakin Tastic Reviews are also on Net Galley because well lets be honest, there are awesome books on there, both by traditional publishers and indie.  Well in my perusing the other day I found this book.  It looked interesting and I am so glad that I did.  Mind you that my entire net galley has 5 books and one was so badly formatted that I couldn’t read it.

~~Andi’s Review~~

 

Kristen is a police officer who lives in a sleepy town that usually has no violence other than the occasional teenager smoking a joint.  Well along comes a call that has the entire town reeling.  A young girl with her throat torn out in this sleepy town turn the entire future of Kristen and the town upside down.

 

Julian and Alex are two of a large group that make up the VMF, a group dedicated to maintaining vampires stay in the dark and those who go rogue are probably handled.  They were best friends, are best friends, will never be friends because of a young half vamp by the name of Calista.  This case that Alex sends Julian on brings up hard feelings that may tear the two apart in more ways than one.

 

This is a good book, there is one thing that really irks me about the book.  It is written in in first person that has different narrators, so each chapter is a different narrator.  Well one of three main characters alternate telling the story.  This is not a bad method and there have been a lot of books lately that have this writing style.  What is “bad” is that there is a lot of repetition between the  story lines because each person is giving their side of the event.  I think that it could have been done with less repetition and the story would have moved along a little faster.

 

The story line itself is really good and it is has an element that is completely different than most vampire stories which I really like.  I also like the personality that the author gave to the characters.  Overall this is a good story and I look forward to the other ones.
