[ARC Review] - In the Blood

Title: In the Blood
Author: Adrian Phoenix
Series: The Maker's Song
Genre: Urban Fantasy
Year: 2008

I received this book for review from the author.

Summary: While still struggling with nightmares and seizures, vampire rock star Dante Baptiste continues to search for the truth about his past. And when he and his band Inferno come to Seattle on tour, FBI Special Agent Heather Wallace can't help but be drawn back to the beautiful, dangerous nightkind even though she knows the extent of the Bureau corruption that surrounds them. But what neither realize is that new enemies lurk in the shadows. Shadowy government forces are eliminating loose ends from Project Bad Seed--and Heather and Dante are first on the list. Elsewhere, the Fallen gather, intent on finding the long-awaited savior. And a damaged and desperate adversary, with powers as strange and perilous as Dante's own, plots to use Dante as a pawn for violent revenge. But only one of these lethal forces holds the key that could finally unlock the secrets of Dante's birth and the truth of his existence... or destroy him completely

Thoughts: This is the second book of the The Maker's Song series. I enjoyed it just as much as the first, A Rush of Wings. There are really three story lines going on that all lead to Dante.... The Bureau/Conspiracy, The Fallen and then the relationship between Heather and Dante. At first I wasn't sure I was gonna read the second book. But I was really captivated by Heather and Dante in the first book, things were kinda left open at the end. I had to to find out what happens to them. They are what will keep me reading the books to come. There were a few parts that were hard to get through, but other than that it was a good story.

Score: 4 Stars

  1. Congrats on winning the ARC!

    I'm glad you enjoyed the book :).

  2. Oooh an ARC! I have only one ARC, but it was given to me by someone else who had it first. (So, I guess that's not too cool, lol.)

    I'm happy to hear you enjoyed it :)

  3. And, BTW, I like the new layout! I love pink ;)

  4. Well, now don't I feel like sh*t! I didn't even realize you changed the colors to pink!

  5. LOL! Thanks! Yeah I switched it a few days ago. The last one I had you couldn't change much of the colors and the orange banner was bugging me.


  6. I am always looking for more Urban Fantasy books! That is some cover. Wish I had that body.

  7. I really need to read the first book that you sent me! Arg - so many books! :) This sounds great.
