Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
A reluctant monster's dangerous quest for redemption in water-starved postapocalyptic America shapes the gripping sequel to August 2011's Bloodlands. Mariah Lysander's werewolf side is increasingly uncontrollable and her blood-bonded vampire companion is still angry that she killed his former lover. Mariah leaves behind a hidden were-creatures' sanctuary in a desperate search for self-control that leads her from desert tent camps to a necropolis filled with still-living disease victims. Meanwhile, her fellow were-creatures are hunted obsessively by an ex-government Shredder. Cody proficiently deploys moments of horror: gory slaughters by bloodthirsty monsters, the more subtle terrors of disease, and government-run lunatic asylums rumored to contain a cure for lycanthropy. Developing a well-extrapolated dystopian future of urban hubs surrounded by chaos and a wildly creative collection of preternatural creatures, Cody offers a compelling glimpse into the varying aspirations and potential future of monsters and monstrous people. (Sept.)
-Susan Sizemore
"A great, edgy fresh twist on paranormal romance. Brilliant!"
Library Journal
When the were-creature Mariah meets Gabriel, the vampire, she attempts to forsake the sins of her past and journeys with Gabriel into a haunted landscape in search of a cureā€”and Gabriel's love. This sequel to Bloodlands should find fans among followers of Kim Harrison and Patricia Briggs.

    Nightmare to Scourge

    "May. I. Join!" She hissed fiercely, her pitch black fur on end. The scarlet red tufts of fur bristled. The stich like pattern that looked as if her mouth was sown together quivered.

    Put it Down and You Won't Want to Pick it Back Up

    Gabriel and Mariah are having relationship issues. Their bond isn't enough to overcome Abby's death. The peace Gabriel is able to give Mariah isn't working, her changes uncontrollable and Gab's bloodlust is becoming less and less manageable. They need a solution to their darker natures. A cure. So the paranormal duo set out on a quest to the hubs to find a cure. But what they find is so much more transforming and terrifying then anyone could have imagined.

    Christine Cody returns with Blood Rules the second installment of her Bloodlands series and hits a stumble in her stride. While I thought Bloodlands was interesting for the mix of genres Blood Rules gets bogged down by an overly taylored world. Sure the whole wild west meets a dystopian post apocalyptic sci-fi world sounds cool and was for a while but it just got to be too much. Everything was so stylized it was starting to sound like a bad science fiction flick. There were these complex descriptions of future technology that bored me. Way too much filler. The whole book felt flat. There was quite a bit of action toward the end but it was too little too late by then.

    With an increasingly strange world and even stranger storyline Blood Rules is the kind of book you put down and have a hard time picking it back up.

    This exhilarating return to the post-apocalyptic American Bloodlands is a super action-packed entry

    Her werewolf has increasingly tried to take control of Mariah Lysander. At the same her vampire bond mate Gabriel loathes Mariah for killing his beloved Abby though the latter challenged the former for her place in the secret werewolf community hierarchy. So fearing she is becoming out of control and knowing how her mate feels about her, Mariah leaves the safe were-species habitat.

    Mariah hopes to control the beast. She travels the American wasteland where water is the most precious commodity. At the same time she enters a dead zone necropolis of the diseased and meets 562, a former government Shredder Johnson Stamp who stalks the Were and Vamps with one mission: kill them.

    This exhilarating return to the post-apocalyptic American Bloodlands is a super action-packed entry as readers will ponder just who the monsters are. Angst-laden with Mariah feeling guilty for some of her deeds and Subject 562 seeking redemption of sorts, fans will enjoy this exciting thriller. Rotating perspective mostly between Mariah, Gabriel and Stamp, readers will see how the trio agree that Christine Cody's color of choice is a gory landscape from sea to bloody sea.
