The Kai Gracen Series: Book One

Ever since being part of the pot in a high-stakes poker game, elfin outcast Kai Gracen figures he used up his good karma when Dempsey, a human Stalker, won the hand and took him in. Following the violent merge of Earth and Underhill, the human and elfin races are left with a messy, monster-ridden world, and Stalkers are the only cavalry willing to ride to someone’s rescue when something shadowy appears.

It’s a hard life but one Kai likes—filled with bounty, a few friends, and most importantly, no other elfin around to remind him of his past. And killing monsters is easy. Especially since he’s one himself.

But when a sidhe lord named Ryder arrives in San Diego, Kai is conscripted to do a job for Ryder’s fledgling Dawn Court. It’s supposed to be a simple run up the coast during dragon-mating season to retrieve a pregnant human woman seeking sanctuary. Easy, quick, and best of all, profitable. But Kai ends up in the middle of a deadly bloodline feud he has no hope of escaping.

No one ever got rich being a Stalker. But then few of them got old, either, and it doesn’t look like Kai will be the exception.

Loved it.

having read all three, i must admit to being stupid.--i should have stopped at the first book. these are trying to be either gothic in the idea of decriptive or the idea of a new world - either tolkein or rowlings. none of which measure up to either. the glossary at the front of each does nothing to explain any back story; ooh the haunting of the mysterious father and subsequent siblings is just......not coherent. while i have enjoyed this author in other series, this just soured my mind.

I really enjoyed this book. It made me think of something that would come on the Syfy channel. It has elves, monsters, battles and little romance. Most label it as M/M, but I would say the lead is bisexual. Things don't get to the erotic level, but the main character seems interested in both female and male partners. The storyline is leading toward him being with a certain male character though. I'm looking forward to book two.

I absolutely loved this book. Fantastic, detailed work - building, exciting chase sequences and narrow escapes, terrifying monsters, a compelling and mysterious protagonist, and a touch of romance. (Yes, only a touch of romance. I would classify Black Dog Blues as less an M/M romance, and more as an urban fantasy with an M/M romantic subplot.) I really, really, really want the next book. Right now. Highly recommended to fans of Zoe Archer, Thea Harrison, Jordan L Hawk, KJ Charles, and Ginn Hale. -- lyradora
