God Touched by John Conroe
Publisher’s Description: Chris Gordon is a rookie with the NYPD – one with a secret. In his spare time Chris is an exorcist without equal with a gift from God.
But when he saves a beautiful girl from a demonic attack, he discovers there is more to fear than just demons. Finding himself surrounded by vampires, were weasels, and facing a giant short-faced bear, Chris struggles to stay alive, all while protecting his deadly new girlfriend. And then there’s her over protective vampire mother!
Nervous Nellie’s nervousness necessitates knowledge of the novel (in other words, SPOILERS!).
Main characters: ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ Chris Gordon, 23, (another dang youngster) NYPD rookie officer trained as a demon banisher. Alex Gordon, Chris’s grandfather and man who raised Chris. Tanya Demidova, (another 23 year old), “Young Queen” of the vampire race. She is born of two vampires (only one known to exist) and thus placed on a pedestal as royalty. Okwari is my favorite. He is a tough spirit tortured by demons to do their bidding and ends up being Chris’s protector.
World: ♥ ♥ ♥ The world is the same one I am in except filled with vampires, werewolves and demons.
Story: ♥ ♥ ♥ Chris is a family trust fund child with a couple cool million stashed in the bank. He doesn’t have to work, but he does anyway. The plot wasn’t all that big. It was basically a power struggle within the vampire world. The bad guy vampires want to take Tanya’s blood (It’s special since she’s born of two vampires, not made.) The drug they create is called N’Hance. Chris happens upon Tanya being attacked and she (of course) falls immediately for him. No graphic sex.
Overall: ♥ ♥ ♥ It’s SOP with the vampires again being massively possessive except this time the female is doing the possessive stuff over the male. How come when males are possessive it’s romantic and when females are possessive it’s “Fatal Attraction”? Anyway, Chris finally found a place to belong and are very protective of him. The lines between good and evil are drawn clearly and there is no cliffhanger.
