Bloodstone

A Deadtown Novel, #3

Victory Vaughn, Deadtown's official demon slayer, has had her share of dangerous situations and this time is no exception. Boston's South End is being haunted by a grisly killer known as The Reaper, who uses a curved blade to carve markings into its victims. While Vicky is hunting The Reaper, she is also trying to protect her vampire roommate, Juliet, from ancient vampires called the Old Ones. The Old Ones are century old vampires that want Juliet for experiments to prolong their immortal life.

When they infect Juliet with a similar version of the Deadtown Zombie virus, Vicky has to hide Juliet away until she can find a cure to help her friend. On the hunt for a killer and to save her friend, Vicky enlists her boyfriend, Kane, and her aunt, Mab, to help save the citizens of Boston. What she doesn't know is that an old enemy has resurfaced to finish what he started and is out to make Vicky his next victim.

I started reading the Deadtown series a few months back and I'm happy to say that I love this series. Vicky is a kick-ass heroine that you would want on your side in any situation. One of the best scenes in this book was the bar scene involving Vicky and a werewolf bridezilla that still has me laughing to this day. This is a fantastic series with well-developed characters and action-packed scenes that will leave you holding your breath until you discover what happens next. It was nice to see that a couple questions regarding Vicky's aunt and sister were finally answered in this installment and I'm looking forward to seeing what Nancy Holzner has in store next for the citizens of Deadtown.


Book Blurb for Bloodstone

They call it Deadtown: the city's quarantined section for its inhuman and undead residents. Most humans stay far from its borders - but Victory Vaughn, Boston's only professional demon slayer, isn't exactly human...

Boston's diverse South End is known for its architecture and great restaurants, not its body count. So when mutilated human corpses begin turning up in the area, the entire city takes notice. The killer-dubbed the South End Reaper-uses a curved blade for his grisly work. And even though there's no real evidence pointing to a paranormal culprit, the deaths are straining the already-tense relations between Boston's human and inhuman residents.

As the bodies pile up, Vicky, her formidable aunt, Mab, and her werewolf boyfriend, Kane investigate, only to find that the creature behind the carnage is after something much more than blood...
