Blood Work is a fun graphic novel and a fast read. I was immediately intrigued by Harrison's use of vampires, witches, and the social dynamics of paranormal societies as they police their own and try to integrate peacefully (well...) with the mundanes.

Although this graphic novel didn't conclude every mystery it raised, it's the first of a series, and also acts as a prequel to Harrison's series of novels about the same characters.

Having caught a glimpse into Rachel Morgan and Ivy Tamwood's investigative partnership, I'm greatly looking forward to reading Harrison's novels about the two. Because while the world intrigues me, I'm fascinated by Rachel and Ivy: their well-rounded, determined personalities; their (sometimes grudging) respect for one another and evolving relationship; and the ways Harrison shows each to be strong without sacrificing character for stereotype.
