This is book two of the series and I really enjoyed this book. It was full of action and drama and I loved it. Can't wait to read the next book.

I have enjoyed the first two installments of PABU serues by Ms. Dane. I like the characters, the plots, the mystery/suspense, and the humor. I am rather puzzled by how quickly the "men" in Sloan's life fall for her. She has only been with PABU for a few weeks but judging by JT's feelings for her it should have developed over more time than the first week they meet. I realize this may be one of Sloan's unknown powers but it is strange nontheless. I really hope that this series doesn't turn into a "romance" series as there are more than enough of those out there and not near enough(in my opinion) of true urban fantasy without the romance angst and stupidity of the typical relationships found in the romance genre. I would also hope now that her parents are married that her mother will play less of a role in future books. She is very irritating and I have gotten to the point that I skip her parts of the book. All in all I like the fact that there are more supernatural species other than typical vampires, werewolves, etc. in the storyline line which brings more interest and variety to the series. The characters are well developed and I do look forward to finding out what Sloan's "powers" are. The heroine is smart and funny and very likeable. I would like the focus to remain on her role in the PBAU and less on her love life (three men vying for her attention in just this book not counting the Sluagh prince). I do plan on purchasing the next book coming out in December and I look forward to reading another chaoter in Sloan's life

Ms. Dane has found her footing. Great installment. Blood of Innocence is book #2 in the Sloan Skye series. About week after her first grueling case as an intern, Sloan is thrust into another disturbing case. Pregnant women are dying of blood loss and their babies are missing. The Paranormal Behavioral Analysis Unit (PBAU) is brought in for another grisly case. Women are showing up dead in their beds, drained of all their blood and their babies removed from their bodies. All done without a drop of blood wasted. There is no sign of forced entry and most of the time; the fathers are sound asleep right next to them. Sloan is also learning about the other side of her family tree. Since discovering she is part elf and that she has been betrothed to the Prince of the Sluagh’s, she is on a mission to find him a different more suitable wife. She has a year and she hits the ground running. If she doesn’t have enough trouble with her so called fiancé, she is also attracting two co-workers and another prince. What is a girl to do? Why help her mother plan a wedding to her father, of course. Sloan’s life just keeps getting crazier and crazier and the only thing she really wants to do is focus on stopping this perp before another mother and baby is lost. This story was a slow burn. Was there heart pounding action? No. Was there hot steamy sex? No. Or what about the usual paranormal suspects? Nope not really. What you do get is a steady story that I personally couldn’t put down. Blood of Innocence really held on and I found I had to force myself to put it down at 4am. I just couldn’t find a good stopping point and eventually had to say – ENOUGH! Another aspect I enjoyed was that this story didn’t give you ordinary vampires. The usual vampire; has fangs, can’t go out in daylight and is evil. Ms. Dane’s plot dove deeper. She is taking the paranormal into folklore. You are meeting creatures that can be labeled as vampires, but are different creatures all together. There are no standard paranormals making visits in her novels, no indeedy. Ms. Dane is making Urban Fantasy all her own and she is owning it. Ms. Dane also keeps you on the edge of knowing Sloan. You can feel that Sloan is on the cusps of something remarkable and there are many signs that pop up. But Sloan still has no idea who or what she really is and neither do you. I kept expecting and wanting Ms. Dane to slip and tell me. Well she doesn’t, but I’m not too terribly disappointed, I think a little mystery makes all the more fun. If you want a unique Urban Fantasy novel that still gives you a touch of paranormal, but with a folklore twist, pick up Blood of Innocence. It is a really nice change of pace from the norm. I personally can’t wait to see what she has next in store for Sloan Skye!

Blood of Innocence By Tami Dane Copyright June 2012 Publisher Kensington Urban Fantasy Gifted profiler Sloan Skye joins the hunt for an elusive serial killer--and discovers a breed of criminal few know exists . . . A cynic by nature, Sloan Skye wasn't thrilled when she was assigned to the FBI's Paranormal Behavioral Analysis Unit. But her doubts are slowly easing, especially when she sees that working on the fringe allows her to use some of her more unconventional tactics. Most of all, Sloan's grateful her career is on track--because her love life, if you can even call it that, is in shambles. Sloan is searching for a suspect who slays his female victims at night, and bizarrely drains their bodies of blood. Bad enough, but when Sloan learns what the killer is really after, she can barely sleep at night. When the suspect guns for someone very close to Sloan, it's time to throw out the rules and face her deepest fears . . . Sloan is not sure going to keep her lunch down at the new crime scene she and the team she’s summer interning with have been called to. The victim (a woman) appears to have been exsanguinated and all her blood somehow removed without a drop of blood spatter at the scene. . All they have is a small puncture wound in the groin area. On top of that the woman has been tucked back into her bed with the covers drawn up around her neck. The team begins their own investigation of the crime scene, and the only thing Sloan can find is a hole in the window screen. How the heck does someone or something enter and leave a room without leaving a single bit of evidence behind? As they are finishing up, JT the other summer intern voices an observation that stuns the group. “I think she was pregnant” causing Sloan to lose it, she races to the window, flings it open and loses her lunch into the garden below. This is the second book in Tami Dane’s new Blood series. Sloan Skye and the members of the FBI’s Supernatural Profiling Unit handle any case that has even a whiff of strange to it. The characters are well founded and 3 dimensional both in their actions, and their backstories. I highly recommend this to anyone who love a good CSI type story and a paranormal setting. This is an Urban Fantasy you can really sink your mind into. FTC Full Disclosure: I received this book from the publisher who only asked for a fair and impartial review.
