Bloodtrail is an enthralling book. This is one vampire that does not continuously look for her next victim, have romantic entaglements, terrorize the neighborhood or create a bunch of new vampires. This is a story of a detective who also happens to be a vampire. She is a bit limited by her inability to operate in the daytime, but doesn't let that stop her. She does have to have human blood, but doesn't go out an massacre the first person she sees. I really enjoyed this story. It seems there is a ...more
In Bloodtrail (A Kathryn Desmarais Gothic Mystery), Kevin Paul Tracy breaks the mold when it comes to vampires.

I read the first book in this series and loved it, the end leaving me excited to see what the next book had in store. The story itself was completely different than the first but all of the characters and scenes developed just as well so that the reader almost felt as if they were a part of the story as it unfolded. And, again, the author finished with a cliffhanger leaving me wishing the next book was ready. Hopefully it'll be released soon!!!
