URBAN FANTASY CORNER: BLOODSHOT!

URBAN FANTASY CORNER: BLOODSHOT!

CHERIE PRIEST

I ENJOYED PRIEST’S STEAMPUNK-ZOMBIE-AIRSHIP ADVENTURE, BONESHAKER, SO DESPITE SOME CLICHÉ RESERVATIONS I’M WILLING TO GIVE BLOODSHOT A TRY . . . PLUS THE COVER IS MEDIUM-COOL . . .

VAMPIRE FOR HIRE

Raylene Pendle (AKA Cheshire Red), a vampire and world-renowned thief, doesn’t usually hang with her own kind. She’s too busy stealing priceless art and rare jewels. But when the infuriatingly charming Ian Stott asks for help, Raylene finds him impossible to resist—even though Ian doesn’t want precious artifacts. He wants her to retrieve missing government files—documents that deal with the secret biological experiments that left Ian blind. What Raylene doesn’t bargain for is a case that takes her from the wilds of Minneapolis to the mean streets of Atlanta. And with a psychotic, power-hungry scientist on her trail, a kick-ass drag queen on her side, and Men in Black popping up at the most inconvenient moments, the case proves to be one hell of a ride.
