USA Today bestselling author Jennifer Blackstream unveils a new action-packed urban fantasy series...

As a witch with a dark past, Shade Renard knows the Otherworld isn't always successful at policing itself. Humans don't believe in magic anymore, and their ignorance renders them easy prey. So when an FBI contact hires her to consult on a possible haunting in a missing person case, Shade seizes the opportunity to see justice done.

The investigation takes an unexpected turn when an undead crime lord shows up on her doorstep. A bold thief stole the vampire's little black book of secrets--and he'll pay a lot more than an FBI consulting fee to get it back. To collect, Shade will have to confront a rogue sorceress--or two, a vengeful wizard, and a lethally seductive fey, with only her wits, her growing magic, and a sarcastic pixie familiar. Success means bringing a killer to justice and taking the first step to redemption. Failure means a war between humans and the Otherworld.

No pressure.

Magic, murder, and mayhem will excite and delight you. Expect no sleep until the last page turns...

Blood Trails is a captivating new urban fantasy mystery series that will plunge you into a deadly world of secrets and hidden motives. Let the intrepid PI Shade Renard and her precocious pixie familiar teach you that in a world where the supernatural run rampant, nothing is as ordinary as it seems...

About the Author

USA Today bestselling author Jennifer Blackstream is…odd. Putting aside the fact that she writes her own author bio in third person, she also sleeps with a stuffed My Little Pony that her grandmother bought her as a joke for her 23rd birthday, and she enjoys listening to Fraggle Rock soundtracks whether or not her children are in the car.

Jennifer doesn’t have spare time, but she makes it a point to spend at least one night a week with her sibling binge-watching whatever show they’re currently plowing through (currently Numbers on Netflix), and she ferociously guards quality time with her son and daughter. She cooks when she has the sanity for it—adding garlic to the recipe whether it calls for it or not—and tries very hard not to let her arachnophobia keep her out of her basement on laundry day.

Jennifer’s influences include Terry Pratchett (for wit), Laurell K. Hamilton (for sexual tension), Jim Butcher (for roguish flair), and Kim Harrison (for mythos). She is currently writing the series of her heart and her dreams, the series that has been percolating in her brain for the last decade…Blood Trails. An Urban Fantasy Mystery series that will combine the classic whodunit spirit with a contemporary fantasy setting. Expect mystery, magic, and mayhem, with characters that will make you laugh, cry, and probably stare at the screen with your jaw hanging down to the floor. Well, that’s how they affect Jennifer anyway…

Jennifer just did it again. Hardly can't wait for the next book. Love the story and setting. I was not into Urban fantasy, but I must admit, this is addictive.

Enjoyed this very much! Different heroine, struggling to find her way rather than a super-ninja, with a great sidekick. Off to read the second book now!
