In the first novel in this m/m young adult paranormal series, all supernatural creatures are governed by the IPO, a secret police force that ensures vampires, zombies, and others follow all required public safety regulations. Among the officers is seventeen-year-old Lorin, the IPO's most skilled cadet. His co-workers distrust him, however, and in extreme cases barely tolerate him. As a vampire, he must follow the rules--iincluding turning a blind eye to the IPO's practice of torturing prisoners--or face death by sunlight exposure.

On one intense dragon-hunting mission, Lorin encounters Lex, a handsome but flesh-eating paranormal who is quickly intrigued by the young vampire. Lorin fears this hunter, but as an unexpected friendship unfolds between the two, an even more unlikely romance blossoms. The problem is Lex is on the IPO's radar, and when they capture him for scientific experimentation, Lorin must risk his life to overthrow the organization he's always feared in order to save his love.

Venomoid, The Night Code Saga: Book One, J.A. Kossler Review from jeannie zelos book reviews I thought this sounded interesting, have a weakness for vampires... but sadly it wasn’t one for me. The premise is good but the execution is very Young Adult, both the language and the plots. I’ve read and loved some YA, Twilight of course, Richelle Meads fabulous Vampire Academy and Bloodlines and some Kellie Armstrong novels etc... so that wouldn’t necessarily put me off, but this was just too far in the YA model for me. I’m sure early teens will enjoy it but I just couldn’t take the characters seriously. There’s little to no world building to explain what was going on, and what the agency did, and then we soon meet Lex – a flesh eating zombie –who falls for Lorin, a vampire working for the protection agency to kill law breaking paranormals. Lex tells him that, yes zombies do eat humans alive, and he does that but he’s not like that other awful group of zombies? What?? He eats people alive but we’re supposed to see him as a good guy? Maybe that explanation came later as I got to just over a third of the way through and just couldn’t read simply didn’t appeal and didn’t make sense to me Sad smile but maybe a younger audience would be more accepting. It really needs to be made clear its a YA novel though. Stars: sadly just two, didn’t work for me. ARC supplied via Netgalley and publishers.
