URBAN FANTASY REVIEW: Deadtown 3: Bloodstone - Nancy Holzner

Release Date: 27/09/11

SYNOPSIS:

Boston's Back Bay district is known for high society, not lowlifes. So when mutilated human bodies begin turning up in the area, the entire city takes notice. And even though there's no real evidence pointing to a paranormal culprit, the deaths are straining relations between human and inhuman residents. As the bodies pile up, demon-hunter Vicky Vaughn investigates, only to find that the creature behind the carnage is after much more than just blood...


REVIEW:

The third and latest offering in the Deadtown series and one that brings not only the community closer together but throws some of Victory’s relatives into the firing line. As usual with Nancy’s writing, it has a cracking pace, the characters grow and when you add to this a touch of snark that for me really brings it to life, it’s a series that I really can’t wait for.

Add to this a whole host of evil denizens, double dealing and of course a police force that doesn’t want anything to do with the matters other than to bury their heads in the sand. It’s magical, it’s frightening and when you add to this a real sense of danger and threat to Nancy’s world, and it’s one that you really can’t let pass you by. Storming.
