This is the 10th book in the series and I haven't read any of the previous, so I had no idea what to expect.

I broke a rule and read this book out of sequence. It was the only one my library had! Shameless of me but I'd heard such good things about the books that I was compelled to try it anyway! If it was easier to find the earlier books, I would read them all in order because this book was well worth the effort to understand everything that had happened before. The vampire myth is very old-school but that is understandable given that the series isn't part of this "new wave" of paranormal.

Absolutely awesome. It's not even about the plot - which admittedly wasn't as twisty or mysterious as usual - but all about Jack's character development. The story was so intense that by the time the end came around, I honestly had no idea what he was going to do that hadn't already been done. Cold Streets did not fail to deliver another tense ending, with serious repercussions that aren't so easily dismissed. Very excited to see what this means for the next book!
