Review: Tainted Blood
Tainted Blood by Karen Greco
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Nina and her crew are back in this installment and it is filled with love triangle drama, crazy vampire attacks, demons being really evil, and soap opera like surprises. If you enjoyed the first book (which you should definitely read before this one), you’ll love getting even more in this wild and crazy world.
In this book Nina is trying to reconcile her two lives: one as a developing witch and another as a vampire Blood Ops agent. Oh, and she’s walking on eggshells around her kind-of-ex-turned-Berserker. Nobody can fault her for feeling a little out of sorts. Add on the fact that she is now forever linked to her vampire partner Frankie, and it’s like a soap opera playing out before our eyes. Don’t get me wrong – Nina kicks some serious butt. Unfortunately, it appears she’s not the best at the interpersonal junk, and that’s what ultimately gets her in trouble (and out of trouble, sometimes). The characters are unique and cleverly written, keeping me guessing and hooked from start to finish.
This book had everything from rock star riots to sizzling sexy paranormal chemistry to witchy spell casting. It ranges from gritty urban fantasy to paranormal action read all mashed into one. As a paranormal romance junkie, I was happy that we get a little taste of that thrown into the mix, too.
