REVIEW – BLOOD SLAVE BY KATHLEEN COLLINS

blood slave
Can she find a killer in a town where the basest desires are allowed to run free?

There are zombies in the Dead Zone and Juliana Norris is sent to take care of the problem. And for there to be zombies, there had to be bodies. When vampires are found to be the culprits, Juliana is sent undercover in the red light district of Kansas City. Lying to her mate, Thomas Kendrick, isn’t something she wants to do, but she’s in another vampire’s territory and Thomas would not be pleased. Besides, she’s more than capable of doing the job and she needs to prove it to everyone. Most of all herself.

Charles Morgan is in control of the Kansas City area, making a rich living off his various enterprises. Juliana goes undercover at the strip club Lust and gets sucked into his dark, decadent world. More victims turn up and the Agency is positive they’ve got their man, but Juliana is not so sure. When the Agency refuses to listen, she reluctantly turns to Thomas for help. He intervenes but finds Juliana unaware of the danger she is in and discovers she may just be too deep for him to save.

Juliana is at it again in BLOOD SLAVE. Bodies are showing up in the Dead Zone and they are rising again as  Zombies along with a Zombie Pomeranian.  They trace the bodies to a town in the Mid West, Kansas City. Now Juliana and Nathaniel are going undercover in Kansas City to see who is involved in these deaths. She will have to do it without telling Thomas, because it is in a rival Vampires town. He would want to follow the rules in dealing with another Vampire Boss, but when things go wrong she has to tell Thomas so she can nab the killer.This will put her in a situation in which might end up turning her into a blood slave. This is such a great series and cannot wait for more.I recommend this book to everyone, and I give BLOOD SLAVE 5/5 STARS.

DEATH’S DAUGHTER BY KATHLEEN COLLINS

I was given a copy of this book by Netgalley

for an honest review.

Book Description

March 31, 2014

Book two of the Realm Walker series

Juliana Norris, Realm Walker with the Agency, is an Altered. A fact that she runs up against every time she’s forced to work with human police officers, and their species-ist commissioner, on cases they can’t solve themselves. Which happens more than they would like to admit.

Her gift—the quality that makes her the best Realm Walker in the business, without boast—is the ability to read magical signatures. Whether the gift came from her father, the dark fae god of death, or the mage mother she can’t remember, is anyone’s guess. And when Altered children start going missing with only wild magical signatures as clues, her heritage is the last thing on her mind.

She can’t afford such distractions, and she definitely can’t afford to worry about the fact that her mate, master vampire Thomas Kendrick, hasn’t spoken to her since she saved him from a demon—maybe it’s because she had to stab him to do so. Because whoever is kidnapping these children must be very powerful to wield wild magic. Very powerful, and very dangerous indeed.

I loved Book 1 – Realm Walker in this series, and Book 2 delivers even more than the first. The story line and characters are very well-developed. DEATH’S DAUGHTER will take you on one wild rollercoaster ride. Realm Walker Juliana Norris with the Agency is called back in early from her suspension from the last case in Book 1, to help find THE THIEF, the psycho who is kidnapping altered children and purifying them. When her niece is taken and one of their own is killed, she must find THE THIEF before anyone else is harmed. Unknowingly that THE THIEF is someone within her own circle looking for the missing children.

When I first started out reading the book I had somewhat of a feeling of who THE THIEFwas, but with a few red herrings thrown in, I was not quite sure until the last. DEATH’S DAUGHTER will have you guessing until the very end. The only part that I did not like was when one of the characters that I liked was killed off, but I know why the author did what she did. When certain characters cannot move a story forward anymore, you have to somehow eliminate them from the story line. This certain character did not move the storyline forward for the character, therefore the death. There is also some resolutions to things from book 1 that help to move the story further along for both Juliana and Master Vampire Thomas, her mate. I really enjoyed the book and cannot wait for the next book in the series. If you have not read REALM WALKER DO SO BEFORE YOU READ DEATH’S DAUGHTER. I give it 5/5 stars.

REVIEW FOR “REALM WALKER” BY KATHLEEN COLLINS

Product Details

Book Description

Publication Date:October 28, 2013

An estranged mate, a mangled body and a powerful demon who calls her by name…

As a Realm Walker for the Agency, Juliana Norris tracks deadly paranormal quarry using her unique ability to see magical signatures. She excels at her job, but her friends worry about her mysterious habit of dying in the line of duty without staying dead. That’s only the first of her secrets.

Most people don’t know Juliana became the mate of master vampire Thomas Kendrick before he abandoned her seven years ago. Most people don’t know the horrors she endured at the hands of the vampire he left in command. Most people don’t know her true parentage, or why a demon on a world-threatening rampage has taken a personal interest in her…

Even as Juliana pursues the demon, it goes after all she holds dear—including Thomas, who is back to claim her for his own. But if she can’t reconcile her past and learn to trust herself again, she will lose him forever.

I received this book from Net Galley in exchange for an honest review.

I really liked this book, it started of with action right from the start. Kathleen Collins really knew how to do world building and character descriptions. The book pulls you in and does not let you go until the last page is read. Then you want the next book to start the process all over again. This book has it all action, mystery, romance , and drama. Juliana and Thomas are great characters and seem made for each other.  I can’t wait for the next book in the series. I recommend this book to everyone. I give this book 5 5 stars.
