Quick & Dirty: Witty and dark urban fantasy with some unique elements.

Opening Sentence: There are three things I would have gladly given my right arm—and leg—never to see.

The Review:

Sloan Skye has only been on the job for the PBAU (Paranormal Behavioral Analysis Unit) for a little over a week. As an intern, she has already helped solve one supernatural case. There isn’t a lot of staff for this joke of a department which allows Sloan valuable on the job exp

Paranormal procedurals are becoming more and more popular as the demand for supernatural flavored everything increases. In the Sloane Skye series by Tami Dane, the emphasis is decidedly on the procedural aspects of the story, with some paranormal elements rounding out the edges.

BLOOD OF INNOCENCE is an aptly titled book since the primary plot involves hunting a serial killer who preys on pregnant women and abducts their babies. The potentially gruesome

Blood of Innocence is book #2 in the Sloan Skye series. About week after her first grueling case as an intern, Sloan is thrust into another disturbing case. Pregnant women are dying of blood loss and their babies are missing.

The Paranormal Behavioral Analysis Unit (PBAU) is brought in for another grisly case. Women are showing up dead in their beds, drained of all their blood and their babies removed from their bodies. All done without a drop of blood wasted. There is no sign of forced entry and

Dont know whether to even read the third book now, its just all very meh to me.

I feel like some of the clues are so obvious, and others im like thats a bit far fetched.

Like the bird thing, as soon as there was a feather in the room at like the 1st or 2nd crime scene I knew it was a shapeshifter, but it took Sloan at least another quater of the book to come up with it!

The vampire thing is getting pretty old quick as well. There are plenty of other paranormal legends that could have been used, I

This book was a lot better than the first in the series however there are things about it I didn't care for. Again we have Sloan Skye intern for the PABU who is profiling another vampire case. The fact that this was the second book in the series and we had another kind of vampire was kind of annoying, and after reading the synopsis of the next book it looks like more the same. Has the author never hear of werewolf, ghosts, goblins and other thing that creep in the night.

Then there is the fact th

BLOOD OF INNOCENCE by Tami Dane (Paranormal CSI). I read the first book of this series (BLOOD OF EDEN) a year ago and I really liked it. It had the same intensity of the first few Anita Blake series (Laurell K. Hamilton) mixed in with a spunky heroine like Rachel from Kim Harrison’s The Hollows series.

BLOOD OF INNOCENCE storyline was dark and intense (someone is going around and killing pregnant ladies in their sleep) which should have been nail-bitingly-good but with her man troubles, parental

This was my first urban fantasy book. I found it a bit repetitive and wanted more details. (=

Interesting. As it turns out this was book two of a new series so I didn't get a lot of the background of the main character Sloan. She's an intern for the FBI and works as part of a paranormal profiling unit. The case she and her co-workers were working to solve was a strange one indeed! Women found dead in their beds, drained of all blood after just giving birth, without a shred of evidence to go on. I would like to read more from this series. I think it has a lot of potential both as a great ...more

I read Blood of Innocence when it came out in June, but I did not review it. Rereading Innocence before Dawn will give me a chance to write a review. Sloan Skye is an interesting character, but she is annoying at times. The hints of some mysteries in the paranormal life into which Sloan stumbled continue in Innocence. I like the story on second reading, and look forward to Blood of Dawn.

After reading the first book, I had to get this one too and it was very good; I could do without all the romance in it and stick more to the mystery at hand but it was still a good book. The author creates very sarcastic characters and since that is how I am in real life, I have a good connection with the characters and their sense of humour in the book.

I enjoyed this book. But found myself wondering how this self-confessed genius was so dumb! If I could work things out, why couldnt she?!
However, the characters are coming together and the storyline, including Sloane's love life are growing on me. I will read the next in the series.

It ended in a HUGE cliff hanger. What does Elmer want for repayment?

Sloane romantic relationships are in shambles. Every men in her life lied to her, even the new one.

Her professional life is getting better and the case more scary.

Can't wait for the next one.

This was an interesting book. Some of it felt obvious and that Sloan was kind of dumb for not seeing what was in front of her face. She isn't that slow so i feel like she wasn't livin up to her level of knowledge

Outstanding. Great mix of paranormality (new word?), action, romance with a hint of more to come. Really liked this after the first couple of chapters - hard to put doen.

Better than the first instalment. Better paced, written and edited.

I'm enjoying the series. It's almost a couple steps down from a J D Robb series with a paranormal twist.

An okay second book in the series. Good enough to to read the third, but it would not have been good enough if it would have been the first book.

Tami Dane, Tawny Taylor's alter ego, is rarely seen in anything but black sweatpants and hoodies, unless she's in historical garb. And when she's not stomping around in mud, pretending to be someone else, or working on her latest sewing project, she has her head buried in a book or eyes glued to her computer monitor. Not only does she love sewing. She also loves writing. If you’d like to read her ...more
