The Review:

Honesty from the outset~

I like stories which are a bit out of the ordinary bordering on quirky. The Very Bloody Marys is definitely that. I mean seriously 'a marauding gang of Vespa-riding vampires'?!? You gotta love that concept.

First things first~

This book is written in the first person from the point of view of the main character, Valentino. As I've said before this is a POV that I have mixed feelings about. In this instance, however, it worked for me for a couple of reasons.

Valentino, a daylight hemosapien, is training to become a vampire cop for the Le Counceil Carmin. He has been training for over a century and his boss/trainer, believes that he is worthless. Valentino readily agrees with him...

For the entire review please go to the Best Paranormal & Urban Fantasy Review site on the web, Bitten By Books for the review of The Very Bloody Marys in it's entirety. You won't be sorry.

Definitely not near as good of a book as Running Dry. If it was not for the action and a pretty good story plot, I would have given up and not finish reading this book. When Valentino’s boss goes missing he is charged to investigate, involving 3 queenie vamps on Vespas, one psychotically upset faery, and The Boy. Can Valentino survive solving this case?

It isn't very often--in fact I can't remember the last time I read a book and thought, "Well, that was a waste of time!" But that's how I felt about this one. Opaque in plot, irritating in style and a waste of a good premise.
