Are there vampires on the loose? Is their favorite dining spot the local hospital or is there something far less Vlad and far more techno-insane going on? PI Hannah Franklin and technomage Ian Bradley have taken the case in an effort to keep things hush-hush until the case is solved. Face it, how confident would you be in a hospital whose patients end up drained and eviscerated? Who is doing the killing and why? Can people be scientifically given a new lease on life? Is this the future’s version ...more

Hannah Franklin and Ian Bradley are now living together and are partners in a private investigation company, Hacked Investigations. Hacked specializes in technology related crimes, perfect for Ian who is a technomage. When their friend Leon contacts them after the hospital where he works starts receiving mutilated bodies, Hannah and Ian feel there is something "hinky" about the case, but they really can't afford to turn down St. Gregory's so they take the case. It appears the same group of trial ...more

So, in this addition to the Hacked Investigations series Ian and Hannah are pretty much together. They seem to have moved on from their past hurts and work together as a team. They're on the hunt for a murderer which leads them to some unsightly places. Hunting a guy that has no problem getting his hands dirty isn't fun or easy for this couple.

There's a few twists and turns in this one that helps to keep the pace going. It's a quick mystery with some magic and technology elements thrown in to ke

Hacked Investigations has a new partner and Hannah has reunited with her ex which is a good thing because the hospital needs their help with a case that is frankly baffling everyone including the police in this fascinating cyberpunk romance.

Now, they that have a new case, Ian really needs to learn to be able to divide his focus in order to keep their renewed relationship but that won’t be easy with this case because not only is quite a bit from the norm, it is quite disturbing. Lots of passion s

This is book 2 of this trio of mismatched friends, well at least 2 of them are more then just that, I missed more of that crazy gnome Bernard though...LOL

Ian a Technomage and Hannah a private eye are on the hunt for Leon and come up against what they never imagined! It's all crazy, but someone has to do it in this Tech crazy world.

Meanwhile Bernard the gnome is home getting into all kinds of mischief.

Lot's of fun for the reader, had me laughing.

I was gifted this book for an honest review.

Hannah and Ian are on the case again. Hannah is a private investigator and has recently taken on Ian as a partner. Hannah and Ian were recently an ex couple. They have reignited their passion and struggle not to let work get in the way. They also have to dodge Bernard, the wily and rude gnome that lives with them.

Savage Bytes has them tracking down gruesome medical murders. They have been employed to figure out what is happening and keep it quiet from the public.

This book continues the great detective adventures of Ian and Hannah

There's a little bit of magic, a little bit of terror, a little mystery, a lot of horror, a dose of steamy, often interrupted romance, and more interaction with the often annoying but somewhat endearing gnome in this second book in the Hacked Investigations series. Mangled bodies are piling up at the hospital morgue and the hospital bigwigs want to discreetly hire Ian and Hannah for their ability to solve unsolvable crimes. The

Hannah and Ian are back and this time the are asked by Leon, you meet him in the first book, to look into the deaths of patients that have been mutilated and drained of blood. Ian is a little skeptical in taking the case but since times are a little hard they take it. This story is short but it keeps you guessing on who is doing the killing and why. Hannah is still her usual kick butt and take charge self but she is learning to let Ian take over and so his thing when it needs to be done. Also wi ...more

I was given a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.
Although not my usual genre of reading, this book/series has captivated my interest.
As we follow the escapades of Ian and Hannah, we are drawn into the deep, dark mind of a mad murderer who craves power.
Sarah has a wild imagination, of which she also has a wonderful talent of being able to transfer to words, giving us the opportunity to enjoy her exciting, fast paced stories as she sees them. This book is no exception as we are

Very exciting plot that keeps you guessing, fun characters to keep you involved in this awesome SyFy! Ian is a technomage (which I personally love the blend of magic and technology), he along with his partner (and love of his life) Hannah run a private investigative service which has taken off after uncovering the deeds of super giant MAX Security (read Techno Crazed book 1 in the series). As a favor to a friend they take on a case of strange murders that ultimately lead them to the most surpris ...more

This is book 2 in the Hacked Investigations series and I would recommend reading book 1 before starting this one. I enjoyed getting back into Hannah & Ian's world again. This book had a faster pace than book 1 and I had a hard time putting it down to complete other chores. I am greatly looking forward to the next book in the series and hoping to learn more about Ian being a techno-mage and some further information on how he learned to handle his powers and where they originally came from bey ...more

This book is the continuing story of Ian and Hannah. This is their second case for Hacked Investigations involving the hospital that Leon works at.
There are dead people and missing body parts that were bio-organs that the hospital transplanted into 12 people. Now some of these people are showing up dead with the parts removed. Ian also discovers there is someone else who has the same abilities as he does. Very intriguing, sexy, and exciting. The Gnome is a real hoot. Looki

I received this for an honest review.

It is good to see Hannah and Ian still together. Hannah Franklin is a private investigator. Ian and Hannah are hired to work a case of someone killing people and stealing organs. Seems like the killer is always one step ahead of them.

I just love Bernard. He is a gnome. He is truly a handful and always up to mischief. Bernard seems entertained of the murders going around. He is still annoying Ian and Hannah. It is almost funny how he wants to know if they bon

So we are back with Hannah, Ian, and if course Bernard the gnome. We also come across another familiar face from the last book, Leon, who is the one who brings them their next big case. Something is going on with the hospitals patitents who have bio-organs. In a race to try to save not only the patients life but their own, they must use everything they have to stop this killer. Things are action packed and of course some hot scenes together. It was a great read and we get to see more of Ian's po ...more

Very entertaining
Well written self-contained story and yet a continuation of the story theme. Hannah and Ian continue to work on their relationship as well as work together in investigating for others. When a new case come in from the Hospital through Leon about dead people and missing body part that were bio-organ implanted by the Hospital. And of course Bernard is also back in all his gnomish glory and snippy comments. Full of action and adventure as well as some good laughs.

Savage Bytes is a great read. This is a unique look at the future. Hannah Franklin and her new partner Ian Bradley are enticing, funny, strong, and intelligent. Ian is a technomage and Hannah is a private investigator and they join their skills in solving a ritualistic murder. The story moves quickly and Sarah Makela does a great job of building the characters and drawing you into this futuristic world. I really enjoyed this read and think you should give this series a try.

Hannah and Ian are working on another case. Someone is killing people and stealing their bio-organs. Soon it comes to their attention that all the people murdered were patients at the hospital that hired them to find the murderer. Their friend Leon is kidnapped and they are worried that the killer is using Leon as bait. Turns out they are right. After investigating and finding all the patients that were given the bio-organs, only one is a possibility. William Redmoore is the man they are sure is ...more

It was intense and fast paced. It took me less than an hour to read. I just kept turning pages and thinking need to find out what's next. That dude was psycho! I hope Ian can recovery from what he did completely. That has to be a pain to rewrite all that. Bernard does care! He is so cool and his perviness has hit an all time high. Definitely need to read more!

Hannah and Ian are having another adventure. This is a suspence thriller with a little romance thrown in and has that crazy gnome from book 1. This is a book about technology getting into the wrong hands. Although this is a stand alone book I would recommend you read book 1, Techno Crazed first.

Ok that gnome needs to be locked up or something... uhgg I find him to be so annoying. But even with that gnome I am fully enjoying the series. So much action and twists to the plot that leaves you wondering what exactly is going to happen next. I look forward to reading the next book.
