Black blood is awesome.
Not the book, I mean actual black blood. It's cool because it can either harden or liquify immediately, it can be used as a weapon, whoever's blood it is can use it even after it's out of their body. Black blood can harden so much that someone who has it can't get wounded. Watch any battle between Crona and Maka.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Marvelous Noir Crime Fantasy
I was enthralled by this dark fantasy crime fiction sequel to "Bone Song". The sophisticated, fast paced, multi-threaded police-crime plot tempted me to read it in a marathon sitting; but the wondrous macabre imagery, bizarre denizens, creepy technology and mysterious zombie physiology caused me to savor each page. Resurrected police detective Donal Riordan is compelling as he, (with help from cops, mages and various non-humans including wraiths), attempts to break up a conspiracy to discriminated against, disenfranchise and kill all resurrected zombies, including Riordan himself. In the process, Riordan hopes to track down and kill the remaining members of the "Black Circle" responsible for his lover's murder and his own death. This thrilling novel is a haunting and fascinating combination of solid police procedure, compelling mystery, and gothic science-fiction/horror. I can't recommend this book enough and await the next installment of this simply marvelous series. If you have a fondness for macabre fantasy and/or unique crime fictiion, then you can't go wrong with this book and its predecessor "Bone Song".Was this review helpful?

BLACK BLOOD is a compelling tale that places a gothic horror inside a police procedural fantasy
Tristopolitan police lieutenant Donal Riordan saw Senator Blanz kill his beloved Laura with a shot to the head just before the legislative official murdered him. However, Donal awakes from death with Laura¿s black zombie heart beating inside his chest; put there by paramedic mages. He returns to work with one goal in mind: a vendetta to take down anyone associated with Laura¿s death to include the top secret invincible organization, the Black Circle.<BR/><BR/>There is trouble brewing in Tristopolitan as the powerful Unity Party incites normals to go after undead and inhumans including zombies and revenants. This group is infiltrating every level of power, private and government, in a campaign to disenfranchise the undead. As Donal investigates Laura¿s death, he finds a connection to a foreign government with a diabolical plan to all non-human beings regardless of sentience. That nation is harboring Laura¿s killers, which means if Donal is to enact vengeance, his only reason to live, he must travel to a place that might become his tomb.<BR/><BR/>This is a dark futuristic urban fantasy noir set in a world that uses bones as the prime energy source. Wraiths abound as the police solve paranormal murders and everyday people wear sunglasses inside while never venturing outside which is perpetually dark and dangerous. Zombies are citizens with the same rights as the normals, but the Unity Party wants that revoked while also pushing a final solution of extermination mindful of Hitler. With that background in a free society, readers can imagine what Donal will face if he follows the investigation to its foreign roots. As with BONE SONG, BLACK BLOOD is a compelling tale that places a gothic horror inside a police procedural fantasy.<BR/><BR/>Harriet KlausnerWas this review helpful?
