URBAN FANTASY BOOK REVIEW- DEAD SPOTS BY MELISSA F. OLSON

DEAD SPOTS
Book Description
Publication Date: October 30, 2012
Book 1 of the Scarlett Bernard series

Scarlett Bernard knows about personal space: step within ten feet of her, and any supernatural spells or demonic forces are instantly defused—vampires and werewolves become human again, and witches can’t get out so much as a “hocus pocus.” This special skill makes her a null and very valuable to Los Angeles’s three most powerful magical communities, who utilize her ability to scrub crime scenes clean of all traces of the paranormal to keep humanity, and the LAPD, in the dark.

But one night Scarlett’s late arrival to a grisly murder scene reveals her agenda and ends with LAPD’s Jesse Cruz tracking her down to strike a deal: he’ll keep quiet about the undead underworld if she helps solve the case. Their pact doesn’t sit well with Dash, the city’s chief bloodsucker, who fears his whole vampire empire is at stake. And when clues start to point to Scarlett, it’ll take more than her unique powers to catch the real killer and clear her name.

BOOK DESCRIPTION COURTESY OF AMAZON

DEAD SPOTS is a great start to this urban fantasy series. I has great character development an world building. It also has a love triangle thrown into the mix. Scarlett is a null, which means that magic does not work around her. When a werewolf is in her bubble they shift back to human if they are in wolf form, and vampires can age, breath and step out into the sun without frying. Jesse Cruz is a cop who just made Detective and came upon the crime scene at the same time as Scarlett. He sees a werewolf in wolf form suddenly turn human again, and when Scarlett leaves the area he turns back into a wolf. Scarlett has to find the murderer or she dies. I cannot wait to read the next book TRAIL OF DEAD. I liked this book and give it 4/5 stars.
