In the second book in the series Juliana ‘Jules’ Norris (27), a Realm Walker for the Agency, who tracks deadly paranormal quarry using her unique ability to see magical signatures, a racing against time to find missing children before they turn up dead. With her mate, Thomas Kendrick (nearly a 1000 years ), a master vampire, still trying to win her back and her boss being difficult, Juliana must do everything to save the kid.

Arc provided by Netgalley.

I liked this book, but less than the previous one. Since I reread the first book just before starting this one, I think that the flaws in the writing were highlighted and more difficult for me to ignore. One of the biggest problems I had is the alternance of POV between Juliana and Thomas, which happens every few paragraphs. We hear both their thoughts about almost everyone of their interactions, which is repetitive and makes their misunderstandings even more annoying.

Death’s Daughter is even better than its debut Realm Walker. It was well written and it had an exciting pace. Ms. Collins did a wonderful job with the world building but what hooked me was the mystery that needed solving and the romance between the protagonists.

Death’s Daughter takes off about two weeks from when Realm Walker had ended. Julianna has yet to talk to Thomas and still unsure of where their relationship stands. However, by the end of this book, Ms. Collins gives them a more defin

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

This is definitely an urban fantasy series I want to continue! I only wish I had read the first book before reading this one.

Juliana Norris is a Realm Walker called to help investigate a number of missing children who are hybrids: half human and half Altered. In a race against time to find as many alive children as possible, this novel demonstrates a great mixture of urban fantasy, romance and suspense with plot twists to keep you intrigued.

Death's Daughter the second in the Realm Walker series is as good if not better than the first. This story twisted me up and spat me out but left me in a much better place than the first book. Take a police drama and mash it with a paranormal romance and mix in a bit of urban fantasy and you have Death's Daughter. ...more

A robust police procedural with hints of gothic romance, DEATH’S DAUGHTER deftly blends magic and murder. Though this investigation is easy to follow on it’s own, most of the relationship baggage (both romantic and professional) will be lost on new readers. But if REALM WALKER is as well paced and entertaining as DEATH’S DAUGHTER, starting at book one will be no hardship.

Juliana is having some issues. There is this huge case going on, but because of politics she isn't able to be a part of it. Not only that, but she has to deal with her boss being a major jerk, and her mate isn't speaking to her. She's unsure what to do next, but when more children go missing she won't have a choice but to join in on the case.

Meh, saw it long coming that Taft was the child thief.
I was also irritated by the bad choosing of names.
The killer was killed the Thief. Well, you go for thinking of that.
Juliana worked at the Agency. James is head of the Gathering. And Thomas is a Warden for the Council.

Pertinent information from my review of Book 1 that is also relevant for my review of Book 2 ~ Juliana Norris is a Realm Walker with mixed heritage: half-dark fae and half-mage. She has a gift that allows her to see the signatures of the various Altered that walk among the humans for tracking purposes and and uncanny ability to spring back to life after being declared dead.

It has been a couple of weeks since the events in Realm Walker. After being demon-ridden and coming out of it alive, Thomas hasn’t been speaking to Juliana. She figures it’s because of the method used to free him of the demon and the secrets about her lineage this exposed.

While she’s wondering about the state of their relationship, it’s not the only thing on her plate at the moment. Someone has been kidnapping Altered children. ‘The Thief’ has been taking

This time around Walker Julianna Norris is put in charge of a huge case involving the disappearance of ‘Altered’ children.

You jump right into Juliana's life off page one. She is still working for the Agency, much to Thomas's dismay. He's moved out of his mansion and into a hotel as a temporary residence. He could not live inside those walls where Juliana suffered so much when he left her. He truly thought that he was doing the right thing and letting her live a life without him hovering and had no idea she would be a target. He's hoping that she will c

"Truth be told, she was terrified. Terrified that she'd let him in and he'd destroy her heart again. She wouldn't recover from a second round."

Death's Daughter is another rather basic book in the Realm Walker series, yet once again I really liked it. I really wish I could define what it is that makes this a compelling read for me, because I'd be a much better reviewer if I could.

WHEW....I sure am glad I went ahead and read the second book in Ms. Collins "Realm Walker" series! From the first few pages I knew I was going to be "all in" with this story.

More background information and power descriptions along with a great setup for the storyline. I now have a better feel for Juliana and her cohorts. The reading was engaging and the characters believable (even in a paranormal way!). Even though I am glad I read book 1 I thin

Reading the Realm Walker series was incredible from the beginning to the end. I loved everything about it and as soon as I was done with one I moved right on to the next! Kathleen Collins has created a great world full of amazing characters.

The story was well written and rarely got boring. It had a great flow too, not to fast but not too slow. Juliana and Thomas are A-FREAKING-MAZING!!!! I LOVE them, her with her badassness and him with his

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

This book blends a crime procedural with a paranormal romance with lots of witchy flair. Yes, there is some child crime, so if that isn't your thing, this might not be the book for you. Even me, a long time crime procedural avoider, however, found this to be a good change of pace to my straightforward paranormal romance reading.

2 Sentence Plot Synopsis:

Juliana is brought in to help a species-ist human police force try to stop a spree of Altered (non-human) children kidnappings.

The only real clue left for her to follow, is that the person responsible can wield wild magic, which means this person is not only dangerous, but incredibly powerful.

This book is, hands down, my favorite one in the series.

The fact that children were the target made me care so deeply about the outcome of the story and that made the tension in the

I am absolutely in love with this series. This is the second book in the Realm Walker series. What I like most is each book has an ending. The books are based on Walker Julianna Norris's life. Her romance with her mate master vampire Thomas Kendrick and her life fighting evil. We get to hang with her co-workers and friends. There is some of Thomas' POV which thrills me.

While Death's Daughter is defiantly an interesting take on urban fantasy, I feel like part of me expected more. I did actually enjoy this book even though I haven't read the first one, which probably lost some of the impact of the story.

I feel like if I had to describe this book without revealing to much information on the plot, I would say it's a cross be ...more

Good, but what got me this time was the sense of emotional disconnect. I just didn't feel like there was enough emotion centered on the gravity of the killer hunting kids, nor was it ever really explained why he went after kids and not adults. The same could be said for the character death that occurred. It seemed out of the blue and there was nowhere near enough grief to be felt, especially from the person who was the character's sibling. I felt like the ending was really rushed and would have ...more

In book one we saw that Juliana was struggling to do her job and keep herself alive, then Thomas came back into her life. Her 7 year gone mate! Thomas was able to help her to stay alive, so what if she stabbed him in the process.... a girl has to do what she has to do!

As I reread this series to refresh myself for the third book it all started coming back to me and I must say that it makes me want to go back and reread a lot of my books. I'm really interested to see where the third book is going and hope that it doesn't end in a cliff hanger because it seemed to have taken so long for this new book to come out. Still kinda hard to believe what happened in the end, cut you would've thought Thomas would be a bit sadder.

Kathleen Collins has been writing since Kindergarten. And while her ability has drastically improved, her stories are still about fantasy worlds and the people who play in them. The rare instances that she actually finds some spare time, she spends it playing with her two boys. Three if you count her husband. She is currently hard at work on her next book.
