Overview

For centuries, the werewolves of Toronto have managed to live in peace and tranquility, hidden quietly away on their London, Ontario farm. But now, someone has learned their secret—and is systematically massacring this ancient race.

The only one they can turn to is Henry Fitzroy, Toronto-based vampire and writer of bodice rippers. Forced to hide from the light of day, Henry can’t hunt the killer alone, so he turns to Vicki Nelson for help. As they race against time to stop the murderer, they begin to fear that their combined talents may not be enough to prevent him from completing his deadly plan.

Editorial Reviews

Locus
"The novel [has] an unexpected serious theme that helps raise it above the crowd. It may be funny, often lighthearted and highly entertaining, but it's more than just another 'light' fantasy."
RT Book Reviews
"A yummy concoction of equal parts fantasy and mystery, throwing in a splash of humor and a dash of romance to beguile the palate quite delightfully.... Ms. Huff manages to develop all her different plot threads to marvelous effect. How could anyone resist this vastly entertaining pastiche?"
Science Fiction Chronicle
"A fine mix of the detective story with the supernatural, and easily Huff's best novel to date.... A rousing adventure tale with likable characters and an interesting setting."
SF Site
"Huff tells a great story, but never takes herself or it too seriously. She consciously borrows elements from other books as well as movies, comics, and mythology and combines them with her own great imagination to make a thoroughly satisfying story."

Meet the Author

Tanya Huff may have left Nova Scotia at three, and has lived most of her life since in Ontario, but she still considers herself a Maritimer. On the way to the idyllic rural existence she shares with her partner Fiona Patton, six cats, and a chihuahua, she acquired a degree in Radio and Television Arts from Ryerson Polytechnic—an education she was happy to finally use while writing her recent Smoke novels. Of her previous twenty-three books, the five—Blood Price, Blood Trail, Blood Lines, Blood Pact, Blood Debt—featuring Henry Fitzroy, bastard son of Henry VIII, romance writer, and vampire are among the most popular.

    Vampires

    Excellent series, especially if you are a fan of the Anita Blake Vampire Hunter Series, and the Sookie Stackhouse Series.

    A Werewolf Hunting Sharpshooter...

    This is the second book in the Vicki Nelson/Henry Fitzroy series. Vicki's life is just getting back to normal after her demon-hunting escapade in the last book when Henry, a 450-year old vampire, gives her a call. He introduces her to two of his friends, who just happen to be werewolves. They need her help to find the person responsible for shooting two members of their family while they were in wolf form. Vicki cannot say no and travels out to the countryside with Henry to take the case. There she struggles to find someone with the skill to shoot the wolves while learning about werewolf culture and exploring her relationship with Henry and her sometimes boyfriend Mike Celluci. <p> I enjoyed this book more than the first book as I felt that the characters were more fully developed. Vicki and Henry become more three-dimensional and the werewolves are simply delightful to read about. The twins, Peter and Rose, and Daniel, their younger cousin, provide touches of humor and playfulness to the plot. <p> It was interesting to see how Tanya Huff differed in her description of werewolf culture compared to other authors in her genre. She brought out much more of the wolf in their character than the human aspect. First of all, werewolves are born that way and you cannot be turned into a werewolf. The werewolves stay in packs with a dominant alpha male and female, who are the only two allowed to breed (just like wolves in the wild). Many werewolves are born as twins and find it very difficult to be separated from them. They have a hard time going to school as they find it too confining to wear clothes and to be apart from others of their kind. There are many other interesting aspects of their culture, as well. <p> I gave the book 4 stars because, although I really enjoyed learning about werewolf culture and loved the werewolves themselves, there is still not a lot of depth to the plot. It was pretty obvious who the murderer was as the author only introduces you to a few characters so that was a little disappointing because I love a good mystery. Still, this book was very enjoyable and most readers who read this genre will find it a pleasant way to pass the time. I look forward to reading the next book in the series to find out if it keeps getting better...

    Victoria ¿Vicki¿ Nelson became a private investigator after her

    Victoria “Vicki” Nelson became a private investigator after her eye disease (Retintis Pigmentosa) forced her off the Metro Police. Her best friend of over four years is Detective-Sergeant Michael “Mike” Celluci. Though Vicki is no longer with the Metropolitan Toronto Police Department, she and Mike still help each other blow off steam. Doing so often leads them to the bedroom. Their relationship is loose. They each see other people. Recently Vicki met Henry Fitzroy. Mike has no idea that Henry is a vampire or that the creatures even exist. Mike only knows that he does not like the man.

    When Henry asks Vicki to help some of his friends with a problem, she knows that the problem may not be what most would call normal. Vicki and Henry travel to a sheep farm just north of London, Ontario. The sheep farm belongs to a family of werewolves. Vicki’s job is to find the person, or people, involved in trying to kill them.

    Between Vicki investigating during the day time and Henry during the night, good headway is being made. But then Mike shows up unexpectedly. Mike has been doing some background checking on Vicki’s new boyfriend and he is convinced that Henry is involved in organized crime. Vicki is furious of course, but before she can get him to leave Mike learns what her clients are. Mike world not have believed it, except that he had seen a demon trying to kill Vicki only a month or so prior.

    **** FOUR STARS! This is the second title in the Blood Series. Last story had a demon in it. This time it has werewolves. The love triangle finally finishes forming during this case. Mike and Henry realize that they both want an exclusive relationship with Vicki, and that neither are willing to give her up. As for Vicki, she is learning not to judge her clients by human standards, no matter how human they seem most of the time.

    Huff has another winning story in this book. There are many typos (in the Kindle version that I purchased), but not as many as in the first story. Well done! ****
