Rarely surprised, I was utterly stunned when a glance at the end of the book revealed that "Blood Law" was actually Jeannie Holmes first novel. Not written like a novice, Holmes pens absorbing plotlines and smoldering characters like a pro in "Blood Law". Working as an Enforcer for the FBPI (Federal Bureau of Preternatural Investigations) in a tiny Mississippi town, vampire Alexandra Sabien has fought to thrive beyond her family history and her race to develop a tentative relationship with the humans. Maintaining order-in a town where the human to vampire ratio is almost equal-is noticeably complicated and the challenges are aggravated by the obvious contempt of the local Sheriff. Disturbed and discouraged by her inability to solve her current case-a serial killer hell bent on staging gruesome crime scenes featuring headless vamps-Alex makes the call to FBPI headquarters to request forensic backup. She might have sided with her human counterparts had she known that her past and former fiancé would arrive to haunt her. The words virtually drip with sexual tension as Alex and Varik reunite in the search for a killer and Holmes, although new to the scene, never lets the temperature drop. The race to finish will make any fan of dark urban fantasy stand in line for the next installment. Reviewed by Suspense Magazine www.suspensemagazine.com

I saw the reviews & almost did not get this book... but I am glad I made up my own mind & read it. It was really good. I will get the next book. Maybe I was just in the mood for a darker book like this. It just worked for me!

Federal Bureau of Preternatural Investigations (FBPI) field enforcer Alexandra Sabian resides in Jefferson, Mississippi; a town in which half of the six thousand residents are vampires to include forty-something Alex. She relocated to the quiet town six years ago for some needed respite from her internal issues. An unknown predator begins serial mutilating and killing vampires that remind Alex of her father's brutal homicide forty years ago, which haunts her. Nassau County Sheriff Harvey Manser makes it clear at the latest murder scene that his belief that the only good vampire is a truly dead vampire. The remains are horrific with fangs and heads removed amongst other vicious mutilations. The FBPI provides Alex with backup sending in retired agent Varik Baudelaire; her former fiancé and mentor whom she detests for his betrayal. This is an entertaining urban fantasy with a fascinating premise that does not always work. Four decades ago the vampires came out of the coffins demanding equal rights and legally received them within seven years of protesting, but de facto racism remains strong. The story line is at its best when the focus is on the taut dysfunctional relationship between the investigating FBPI agents. When the tale takes a moral species rights stand, it becomes too obvious a metaphor that pales compared to the realities of the Civil Rights Movement. Still readers will enjoy the opening gamut of the FBPI as Mississippi's Burning. Harriet Klausner

This book was just OK. It resembles so many other books in this genera that it came off as not original and a rip off to better books. This book was well written just has the same old same old feel.

Jeannie Holmes has created a story that crosses multiple genres. Fans of UF, crime thrillers, paranormal romance and vampires will all find something to love about Blood Law. Holmes puts a new twist on the vampire mythos and yet pays homage to it. Like Bram Stoker's Dracula, her vampires can walk in the daylight and require blood to survive. They are not 'undead', but a separate species from humans altogether. Alex Sabian is a strong, complex female lead equally balanced by her smoldering ex-fiance', Varik Baudelaire. Besides dealing with Varik's re-entry to her life, Alex has to juggle catching a serial killer, small town prejudices, and oh yea, ghosts. The multiple threads of the story are expertly and tightly woven. The action is a non-stop adrenaline rush. The ending is satisfying, yet leaves you wanting more. You won't find anything else quite like it, at least until the sequel.

WOW! For a 1st Novel this was an exceptional read! I loved it! In fact, I sat down intending to read the first chapter & found myself up until 3 am trying to finish the book! It was a great suspense, action, mystery & a touch of romance that was very well written! I would have given it a 5 star review if there would have been some more romance in it (which is my personal pref) I highly suggest ANYONE who LOVES VAMPIRE novels buy & read this book. You won't be sorry! I cant wait for the 2nd in the series to be delivered & hope Ms. Holmes contines with it for a long time to come!! KUDOS TO THE AUTHOR!!

PB/Paranormal Fantasy: I really wanted to like this. I gave it two stars b/c I did finish it. It is an easy read, but I did skip through a lot of the scene settings and only read the dialog. There were so many problems. I am a big fan of fantasy, but the heroine, Alex, is a unlikeable hothead. She is so poorly written and one dimensional. The setting of paranormal beings being in a human world is feasible for me, but this setting did not work. The romance did not work for me either; why would Varick want her? She is obnoxious. The bad guys are dumbasses, with no whittyness. The murder plot was formula. The only character who had any depth, and I liked, was a secondary named Tasha. I pictured her as a serious Wanda Sikes. Her character grew through the book while everyone else was static.
