I was a bit hesitant about "Bloodshot" as it seemed like another predictable novel in the urban fantasy/paranormal genre. Even though it contains all the cliches I normally hate in the genre and the plot got just plain ridiculous by the end, I really enjoyed it. Our heroine and narrator, Raylene, is crude, funny and charismatic. "Bloodshot" had some serious flaws, but I was willing to overlook most of them for the hilarious and revenge-laden ramblings of Raylene. The other characters are equally silly, yet likable, including foul-mouthed children squatters, a blind vampire, and a ex-Navy Seals drag queen. The major problem with this novel is there are some major plot holes. I'm assuming these holes will be filled in when the sequel is released, but it was still annoying. Overall, a silly, fun, yet violent urban-fantasy read.
