Though not typically the type of book I would read, I thouroughly enjoyed this novel. Hearing about werewolves and vampires featured in it, I was afraid I was going to be reading Twilight regurgitated, again. This was not the case. Mr Sadler had very unique views of monsters. World wide setting and ties to organized crime made this more of an adventure than a horror novel. The pace of the novel was very quick. He was descriptive enough to get the points acrossed, but did not put you to sleep talking about the way the wind blew. I highly recommend this first book in the series and am looking forward to reading the rest!

What if one night you discovered you were a rare breed of warrior meant to be the champion of all mankind? That you were caught in the middle of an age old war between supernatural forces and had no choice but to fight or die? Oh, and that the beautiful predator staring at you from across the room was just dying to have sex with you, or maybe eat you depending on her mood? ¿Secrets of Blood & Bone¿ is a fast paced Urban Fantasy jam packed full of paranormal action, be it on the battle field or in the bedroom! This is the first installment in a series of books which introduces us to a strong-willed hero named Quillen Ware, or just Q to his friends. One night while working in a dangerous inner city emergency room, his security guard duties take him into the parking lot where he attempts to diffuse a gang war in the making. Riding on the heels of the bullet-riddled gang-bangers come a squad of mercenary soldiers accompanied by a pair of supernatural monsters who leave nothing but death and destruction in their wake. As Q's new life unfolds before him, he finds himself fighting for his life with a hell hound, dining with an immortal shape shifter, bantering with a genius gnome, and sharing sexual tension with a beautiful were-tiger all before the first night comes to a close. During his journey, Q has to face some very difficult questions. Was his real father a serial rapist? Who was responsible for his mother¿s death? Why is he so important to the plans of a species he knows nothing about? All of this while fighting for his life and his sanity in a world where sex and violence are regular facets of everyday life. Will Q fully embrace this new life, or will he try to fight his destiny on the way to an epic climax and a discovery that will shake not only his world but that of the entire supernatural community?

The Urban Fantasy book, Secrets of Blood and Bone by Rob Sadler, pulls the reader into the story with vivid descriptions of both the characters and the scenes. I felt like there was a movie screen that played in my head as I read the words. Not the typical Vampire vs. Werewolf book. This book brought out all of the paranormal creatures. The battle scenes kept me on the edge of my seat waiting to find out what happened next. The main character, Q, says aloud what others only think and as the reader, I was under his spell in no time. This is an awesome book and Rob Sadler has an excellent writing style and creative imagination. This book is one that males and females alike will enjoy. My only warning is that it is not suitable for children. On a personal note, I have read more than 3000 books throughout my life and I have always had the same favorite author. Well until I read this book, Rob Sadler is now my all time favorite author!! In addition, despite my house being 65 degrees I still needed to fan my face during the sex scenes!! I just have to say, ¿WOW¿!!

I could visualize everything, which is important to me. I felt like it was a movie playing in my head. I loved the battle scenes, which is usually the most boring part of a book for me. I loved the ending though I wished the book had went on forever, lol. Then there were the sex scenes...and my best response is WOW!!

If you're looking for a book with sex, violence and adventure involving otherworldly characters, this is it. This book revolves around "Q", a character who discovers one night he is not human and thus begins his journey into a new world he never could have imagined. Q finds himself interacting with vampires, shape shifters, ogres and other species as he discovers who he is and what his destiny holds. He is thrown into a war between the Rotu and Skira, two factions battling for control over the human race, and with time you begin to wonder who the bad guys really are as the lines are grey. It is a fast paced story which gives you just enough answers to keep you going, but opens doors to more to be answered later. There are steamy love scenes and intense battles. This book is an action packed, fun, adult fantasy adventure. I'm drawn in and left wanting more. I can't wait for book two in this trilogy and finding out what happens to Q and his band of friends!

Secrets Of Blood & Bone: Book One in the Trilogy of "Q" by Robert S. Sadler ISBN 978-1452850269 DarkSoulLiterature.com The excitement starts immediately in the Secrets of Blood & Bone by Robert Sadler, with tattooed hospital security guard, Q (Quillen), getting involved with a gang banger fight in the ER. The orgy of violence quickly turns from gun toting gang bangers to include werewolves, all fighting against the hospital staff. While doing his job protecting hospital staff and patients as best he can, which is very well, indeed, he is joined by another supernatural, who recognizes an unusual quality in Q. Q is transported to another part of our society, one well hidden for thousands of years, and known by few humans. He discovers a world of light and dark, good and evil, the lines blurred as they are in our lives. Q's unusual abilities come alive, as he traverses a path hidden for years. Follow him, as he makes new friends, and tries to reason between good and evil. Mr. Sadler brings his characters to life with a flair that makes you hunger for more. Books such as the Secrets of Blood & Bone are not my usual type. I read more traditional sci- fi and enjoying a book of this genre truly surprised me. I truly long for the next book of this trilogy. Hurry up, will ya!

Secrets of Blood & Bone is about an ordinary man that never felt ordinary, he never felt like he belonged around regular people and he was right. I don't want to give away any plot but the lead character of Q is great, very realistic, very entertaining. His interactions with the other characters is powerful and holds your attention! Heated combat, steamy sexual tension, tons of plot twists and even a few emotional moments that will surprise you are all held together by very direct and to the point story telling. In a world where some authors tend to over describe a moment to the point of annoyance, his fast paced writing style is refreshing. A fun and simple read that is entertaining and enjoyeable all while keeping your blood pumping. This isn't a paranormal Romance folks even though there are underlying currents of love and sex, no this is more of an Urban Fantasy action adventure. I think anyone that enjoys stuff like, Underworld and Trueblood will enjoy this! It's supposed to be the first in a Trilogy I can't wait to read the rest!
