This book was so captivating! The author really has a way with words and imagery. I've always been interested in the paranormal and not so much in romance, but this storyline put the two themes together so fluidly that I may just be a romance convert after this. I can't wait for the next books in this series!

I don't, generally, read vampire stories. They tend to be rather predictable, since the raging success of 'that other' series. Maybe it's just the nature of the beast, as it were. Blood of the Son is definitely a page-turner. I just couldn't wait to see what would happen next. And Irish Vampires? Fascinating change from the traditional Vlad-the-Impaler types. For a self-published, first novel I can honestly say I've read much worse. And, like other such novels, this one could have benefited greatly from pruning and proofing. The daily minutiae was beyond excessive; the errors, off-putting. McCoy has a solid storyline, with some interesting characters. But I didn't need to know the make, model, and VIN number of each vehicle or the minute details of every meal and outfit. And I certainly would, given the chance, burn that messenger bag. It feels as though this novel is a 23-chapter set-up for the rest of the series, which leads me to hope that the pace will pick up, and the excessive details will thin out, in subsequent books. Either way, I was hooked enough to keep reading. The synopses, alone, indicate an exciting ride, as Skye is dragged deeper into the world of The Faithful. ~*~*~ Disclosure of Material Connection: I received a complimentary electronic copy of this book as part of an 'Around the Universe' Blog Tour. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

Skye Everliegh Morrison has just graduated college Magna Cum Lade, but she has a massive student debt to repay and no job prospects in the offing. She's also looking forward to the opening of a new Goth/Industrial club, The Mausoleum, but a chance meeting with the new owner opens the chance of a fabulous job opportunity, which she grabs with both hands. Soon, Sky learns she's now part of a vampire culture, but one far different from the legends she's known all her life. J.L. McCoy's tale of human/vampire interaction moves very well. The reader is caught up in the lifestyle of a twenty-three-year-old college graduate looking for a job, in addition having a great time while avoiding a stalker style ex-boyfriend and spending time with her dog. Each page is packed with action, and not one but two attractions she finds hard to ignore. I couldn't stop turning the page, and I am definitely looking forward to reading the rest of this series.

I was immediately fond of the main character, Skye. She’s an easy character to like and cheer for. What was really refreshing about her character in particular was her reaction to the situations that she found herself in; it’s exactly how I would like to react; however, I don’t think I’d show so much self-control around Archer *purr*. Yes, I did indeed purr, Archer is that delicious! In fact, both key male characters, Archer and Jameson are such lovely, sexy characters. J.L McCoy developed their relationships and characters very well, and between these two gorgeous men there’s a healthy balance of testosterone. The novel progressed at a good pace, with lots of lovely action and second guessing. I did however shout out loud (at 1am much to the displeasure of my poor hubby) when I reached the cliff-hanger ending. And what an ending! It successfully made me eager to read book two ‘Sins of the Father’. I really enjoyed Blood of the Son and highly recommend it to readers who love paranormal romance and urban fantasy, especially those who love a healthy dose of sexy. 4 stars.
