I couldn’t resist grabbing a copy of When Blood Falls by Joshua Roberts after seeing it on Instafreebie. That creepalicious cover did me in!
Cover: Winter Bayne
Defending against the demons of the Deep has long given Tyr Og’s brethren purpose. When Tyr’s mother is robbed from him during childhood, he loses his will to live. Now, filled with rage and regret, Tyr hungers for a worthy death to bring an end to the futility of his life. In a short tale of blood and self-loathing, Tyr seeks the most honorable path to finally join his mother in the afterlife.
Deadline by Jennifer Blackstream is book 1 in the Blood Trials Series. I personally thought it was a great start for a series and cannot wait for book 2. This series has a lot of great potential to be one of my new favorite series. I really liked the main character Shade Renard. I love how she does not always have all the answers, and that all though she is a strong person she is not a strong witch. I love how she learns as she goes. All of the characters in the book were written very well, even the villains. This books was one of those I had a very hard time putting down.
In the book Shade is a village witch, kind of like a healer so to speak as well as taking care of problems in her village. Along with her Familiar a Pixie named Peasblossom they take on the village problems. But Shade also has a dream of being a PI.
An FBI Contact asks her to consult on a case of a possible haunting which includes a missing woman. Shade jumps at the chance. Then Crime Lord Anton Winters, AKA the Prince Kirill of Dacia, and also a Vampire shows up at Shades door to hire her to help find a his stolen black book, she gets her first real case, and can hopefully prove herself as a PI.
Dealing with stronger Otherworld creatures she will have to first survive the case, before she can solve it.
I was given my copy of this book by the Author and Enchantress Design and Promo as part of a book tour. My thoughts on this book are my own.

I’ve missed Ms Ward’s writing. I love the flow of the stories, the characters, the world she has built. Every time I take a trip to Caldwell I recall why I love it so much. Okay now that I’ve fangirled appropriately let’s move on to this story. I’m not sure if I wasn’t paying attention or what but Saxton and Ruhn were at total surprise for me. A surprise I love mind you but I didn’t see it coming. Ruhn story is so complex. He has done so much for his family. I’m glad he has Saxton to comfort him. I was so happy with Minnie’s decision in the end too. Now Novo and Peyton are the perfect smart ass couple. And I think Novo should have let Peyton punch Oscar… after the pictures of course. It was good to see Peyton grow up a bit. I think he and Novo have a fun future ahead of them.
