Being a skeptic is somehow making Sloan Skye one of the best profilers in the FBI's new Paranormal Behavioural Analysis Unit. True, her so-called love life isn't any less tangled, but she's beginning to believe she's found a place where her uber-geek smarts and her more out-there methods fit perfectly. Unfortunately, all the incredible things she's seen can't prepare Sloan ...more

Okay, I realize I jumped into this series, but it took me at least half the book to figure out sloane sky is a 20yo with eidetic memory, has 2 degrees and almost her masters and is an intern for the fbi...oh and she is half elf. She gets called to help solve a case where teenage girls are mysteriously electocuted and drained of blood.
She goes undercover, does some poor acting as a teenager, has alot of boy angst. For someone with 3 love interests, she sure is amazed at kissing.
I had fun reading

I picked up Blood of Dawn because I really enjoy urban fantasy and the jacket copy sounded like it would be within my wheelhouse. I am a total newcomer to this series, not having read Blood of Eden or Blood of Innocence. It has the urban fantasy requisites: kick ass chick, multiple love interests (sigh), and the odd creature or two. However, part of what I find problematic with starting a series that’s already in full swing is that often times, the reader will miss out on the emotional developme ...more
I really enjoyed the first 2 books in the series and was eagerly anticipating this one. Boy was I disappointed. Why was I so disappointed?

Major spoiler alert so if you don't want major spoilers stop reading here.


1. The "bad guys" were both incredibly obvious (unsub2) (view spoiler)
I love this book, it was a type of book that I could not put down! Murder, mystery, & supernatural all wrapped into one!! Thank You Ms. Tami Dane, I can not wait to read another one of your books!!

Something or someone is killing teenage girls from Fitzgerald High School, and the one of the FBI's elite teams of investigators is called in. You see, the weird thing is, these girls die in their bedrooms from being electrocuted. Each time these girls die, there is a lightning storm, but the girls
Blood of Dawn by Tami Dane is the third book featuring Sloan Skye. One thing that urban fantasy series with kickass heroines need less of is some sort of 'love interest bingo.' It's not that people don't get caught up in their romantic lives, but when it's become this predictable, something new needs to be added.

Sloan is a member of the Paranormal Behavioral Analysis Unit, or PBAU, which doesn’t exactly roll off the tongue. Instead of being given a vacation, or even a break from her work, she’s
If you have made it this far, you'll probably enjoy. Actually, this book is possibly the best in the series so far. There's a dose of reality injected - Superintern Sloan gets called out for doing work an intern doesn't and puts the whole team and her position at the PBAU and FBI in an awkward situation when she breaks one too many rules. I really liked that Dane gets her character called out for being overemotional in the moment and charging ahead. Sloan's not out yet though, and there's clearl ...more
I am not much for ever reviewing books, but I have to say that I was most impressed with this series. It kept me guessing right up until the very end. That being said....I was very disappointed with how this book ended. You can tell that more books are meant to be written, but it seems as though the author has just disappeared. If your still out there, I would so much like to see MORE.
Sloan still an intern for the PBAU is put undercover again in the worst place ever, at least to her it is. She is sent back to high school (summer school) when teenage girls are turning up dead. She is fighting her attraction to three different males, trying to get out of being the Slaugh Queen by finding a bride for the king, trying to solve the case of the murdered girls without getting killed herself, and needs a new to place to live since her apartment burned to the ground.

Good story. Lots o
The end of this book was so shocking that my head is still muddled.

The most of the book was very similar to the previous 2. Skye runs around a bit like a headless chicken trying to find the bad guy. All the time her personal life is getting in the way.

JT has finally figure out he wants to be with Hough when she loses the baby but still flirts shamelessly with Skye.

Skye begins to have second thoughts about being a FBI agent.

Teenage girls are being killed by electrocution. Their only link is the
One and a half... this one was pretty trite.
I really like Sloan; she's a lot like me, very sarcastic and not all that trusting so I could identify with her nicely; the story was also well done although I could do without all the romantic situations she puts herself through but when you put that to the side and stick with the story, it's pretty good.
Steve Bradshaw
Another good book in the series. Somewhat repetitive character but that is to be expected in a series of this type. I am looking forward to Sloan finding out what her "power" is, but obviously will have to wait on another book to be written!
Gypsie Holley
this series is just crazy. there is so much that goes wrong or happens to the main character, i seriously don't know hope she copes. but it is pretty good, and it makes you read it cause you want to know what could happen next.
my review will be posted at but in a nutshell:

think criminal minds meets grimm, meets lost girl

very inventive and fun
Dr susan
I like Sloane. Blood of Dawn answered a few questions, raised even more, and ended with an unexpected shock. Hopefully, the wait for Sloane #4 will be short.

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
