Publisher’s DescriptionSometimes the price of magick is your eternal soul.

After tracking down an occult serial killer, Wizard and “fixer” August Creed almost dies while fighting the killer.

He wakes up to two shocking discoveries: no one remembers who he is anymore, and he has just three days to break a spell that will ultimately end in a fate worse than death. Determined to catch the Wizard who cursed him and reverse the spell, Creed makes a deal with an agent of the “Division”, a top secret government organization that polices the supernatural. He sets out with the gun-toting and sexy-as-hell Leona Lawson to catch the killer and save his own soul, along the way using his magick to fight demons, ghosts and a slew of other supernatural beings that try to get in his way . But the closer he gets to the truth, the more he discovers things are a lot more dangerous than he realized, not just for him, but for the whole world.

Blood Sacrifice is a dark, thrilling journey into a world where the line between living and dead isn’t nearly as solid as it appears…

Nervous Nellie’s nervousness necessitates knowledge of the novel. In other words…spoilers.  *BEWARE*

Those who restrain desire, do so because their’s is weak enough to be restrained.

The cover is what attracted me to this book. Once I started reading, though, the story pulled me in. There are some typos, which I hope the author will fix. I won’t lie, I did think of putting this book down a time or two because of the editing, but the interest in the story made me plow on.

badge3v4The protagonist was a combination Harry Dresden/Yancy Lazarus. A rogue cowboy mage that takes on anything evil except he is already fully grown into his power. He knows how to wield it and though he isn’t loved by local woo-woo law enforcement, he is necessary to their closing cases.

The end isn’t a cliff-hanger but it does lead into the next book. There is a LOT of gory death sacrifice but no blatant sex scenes. The premise is somewhat a new spin which I appreciated. I would bet that I will find myself searching out the next book in the series because the characters were engaging.

Other recommendations…

…you might try  Yancy Lazarus series by James A. Hunter, Cisco Suarez/Black Magic Outlaw series by Domino Finn or Immortal Vegas series by Jenn Stark.
