I can't begin to tell you what a pleasant surprise "Blood Slave" was. It was more than I ever hoped for and has now sent me on a path to explore other books in this series and by this author.

Blake is half demon and half vampire. She has been working for the equivalent of the supernatural police ensuring humans are blissfully unaware of the supernatural world and the crimes some of them commit. When her boss and adoptive father, Carter's niece goes missing by a rogue vampire blood slave cartel kn

4.5 stars. *May contain spoilers*

I was a little wary of this one. I'm not a big fan of this new kidnapping/rape "erotica" bullshit that's floating around. In fact I think it's outright disgusting and sets women back a few decades, and I can't figure out why women find it "hot". That shit happens in real life-hello! What.The.Fuck?!?

I decided to give it a chance since a friend asked me to read it. While it touches on the aforementioned topics, this book is paranormal, so I said OK. Luckily it's a

I enjoyed certain aspects of this book, while other aspects annoyed the hell outta me. The plot was very strong and the pace of the story was pretty good, except for near the end, it felt a bit rushed. I loved all of the characters, they were all pretty cool and served a purpose. My only problem is with the heroine, I didn't understand how she's brutally against being in a relationship, but then the very next page she's cool with it, but then near the end she's back to panicking about it.

Wow what a book!

From the first chapter, I was hooked! This book is full of action, and awesome characters. I kind of want to read it all over again, even though I just finished reading it!

Blake is one bad ass. I really loved her personality.
The fact that she is half demon, made the book even better! I love the fact that she will let everyone know who was boss, and she wasn't afraid to challenge them.

I was absolutely obsessed with Eli. He is a match for Blake. He is so powerful. He took over his

The cover of the book is spot on with snarky, witty Blake! Half-vamp and half-demon on a mission to save the slaves, with help of course. Incoming! Hot vamps,werewolf Electra, and a few traitors! In the start of the book I loved the badass, witty, and sarcastic herione. But the author does not let us forget she is a woman, with needs despite her demon side. Blake's perfect match, Eli, compliments the mission with a twist I did not see coming! How deep is Carter and why did he just write her off? ...more

N.L. Hoffmann's debut paranormal romance is superb. Blood Slaves is the first in The Daughters Of Darkness series, and the book is definitely worth reading! With unique characters that are just downright yummy, plot twists and steamy sex scenes this book deserves recognition, so I'm going to give it some!

Looking at all the high reviews on Goodreads made me wonder what is was that I blinked and missed in this book, as I thought it was pretty poor in every area!

I noticed with interest that the author mentioned having a proofreader. It might have been an idea to save some money by not hiring one as this book was riddled with bad spelling and grammar, strange sentence structure, weird punctuation etc. If this was the proofread version I dread to think what the previous versions looked like.

I have to say this, I loved the character Blake she is fearless and outspoken it makes into a great story line. She is essentially a woman that doesn’t take crap from anyone; she makes you laugh and fall in love with her character. Blake is an investigator for the Super Natural Crime Division and is trying to find a way to infiltrate the Covert, which has been around for quite some time. Girls are disappearing

This comment might be veering off on a bit of a tangent but I would really have liked this series to have followed Eli's business, with a POV from both Blake, and whatever other member of the team is involved in a romance. This way, I believe the series would have kept a better continuity whilst maintain the prime characters which are both good val

Hoffmann's debut paranormal romance is superb. Blood Slaves is the first in The Daughters Of Darkness series, and the book is definitely worth reading! In this story we follow Blake Noble, a half vampire and half demon. She's feisty with a take no prisoners attitude when it comes to her job. She works for the Supernatural Crime Division. The humor is dark and sarcastic but spot on, and nothing is free from being made fun of including Jack the Ripper, so settle back and prepare to enjoy a new ...more

I absolutely adored this book!! The characters and storyline were great! It was cool that the author associated some of the characters with criminals from our past (AKA: Jack the Ripper).
In the beginning of the book I felt a bit overloaded with the amount of names and people were thrown at me so quickly, but after about 5 more pages it was over and worth it!
Blake is awesome, and absolutely freaking hilarious!

When I purchased this book I wasn't sure what to expect. However I was quickly drawn in and loved the sarcastic and witty sense of humor from the main character Blake. The storyline is well written and keeps you on the edge of your seat! I enjoyed seeing a strong willed woman who can take care of herself. There is definitely something to be said when an author can bring new ideals to the table in paranormal writing. The characters are well developed and each play an important role in t

Blake is assigned to find her bosses niece. She will be taken in to a very dark investigation with blood slaves and sex slaves. She must go in under cover to find out what is going on and who is behind this. She finds herself attracted to the second in charge Eli, who has secrets of his own.

I really liked this story, its jam packed with action and kick ass heroines. There are numerous different supernatural involved and with the main character being half demon and half vampire, not to mention Lucifer's daughter, things are definitely interesting.

This is a faced paced book and the only down side I can say about it was that some times I was scratching my head trying to work out what just happened in the plot. There wasn't enough time to savor the story.

That isn't much of a complaint

New-to-me as well as an up-and-coming new author, a genre that is out of my comfort zone, with saying that.... I was very impressed this read as well as this author! Lots of twist and turns that you don't see coming, as well as being full of romance and vamps! But be AWARE.... This is one heck of a good read!
