    an exhilarating fantasy with a great spin

    The world of Thropirelem consists of 99+% paranormal (vampires, werewolves and gloms) and the rest mostly humans. FBI profiler Jace Valcek was dragged from our earth to capture the head of the Free Human Resistance Aristotle Stoker; her NSA handler Cassius the vampire swears she can go back to her Seattle once the mission is done.

    Twice werewolf Dr. Pete saved Jace's life but died in a third attempt. He is back as criminal Tair, which has Jace trapped in the claws of a werewolf mob war. However, in her efforts to keep the war cold, Jace is bitten and becomes infected with the thrope virus. Cassius explains the best way to prevent the Lycan change is conversion to vampire.

    The latest Bloodhound Files (see Dying Bites, Death Blows and Killing Rocks) is an exhilarating fantasy with a great spin. The heroine has choices to make; none that she desires. However, though this is an excellent entry, it is the thought provoking overarching premises of de jure and de facto racism that Jace and other humans face every day and race wars between species seeking ethnic cleansing that makes this saga of an alternate Seattle (and elsewhere) consistently one of the best.

    Awesome! Amazing!

    Have you ever come across an author that totally catches you off guard with something new where you least expected it? Easily my new, absolute favorite urban fantasy author. The way she tells her readers the story just made me want to read more, more, more of this silmultaneously intelligent, hilarious, exciting, & imaginitive rollercoaster of a true urban fantasy adventure. Not to mention the exceptionally cool heroine - Jace rocks! Bottom line? Read this series, you will love it!!!! Unless you're just looking for another trashy paranormal romance novel, you know, the ones with way more gratuitous sex than story, then you should probably read something else...but no worries, bcuz those darn things are a dime a dozen.

    Good Reading

    Interesting story. I like the "off world" adventures of Jace and the interestin combination of vampire and werewolf infection she has incurred. But I hope that Dr. Pete either gets over "himself" or ??? I hope they don't drag that out too long.
    By the way, I'm rooting for the "wolf" .

    Fantastic Series! Original and engaging! A real "must read"!

    I have read all the books in this series (The Bloodhound Files) and each one has something new to offer the reader. The heroine, Jace Valchek is both engaging and likable; one of my criterias for any book. Jace, a FBI profiler is magically transported to an alternate earth where vampires and werewolves are real and humans are a small minority of the population. I can't wait for the next installment in this series!

    It was a roller-coaster ride

    But, I absolutely loved the whole ride. And that ending? Oh Cassius. How I've loved him from the beginning.
