Blood and Blade by Lauren Dane
It’s been only days since Rowan and her friends eliminated the immediate threat to magic users and Vampires, but they’re already back on the hunt. Rowan’s out for vengeance, and she’s never been more driven—or angry.
Publisher’s Description: But she’s up against a being stronger than any she’s ever fought. To bring it down she’ll need more than the powers the goddess Brigid gave her…
This time she’ll need her friends, too.
She knows her husband will always have her back. As an ancient Vampire and Scion of North America, Clive has more clout and dominance than almost anyone. Rowan’s small but trusted inner circle insist they’ll join her in the thick of the battle, even as she argues it’s too dangerous for them. She’s also got a new dog. Familiar. Whatever. Star is a magical being put in Rowan’s path to help and protect her.
The hunt for ancient evil takes Rowan and her team to London and back to Las Vegas, bringing with them an unexpected alliance. Fortified by their rage, grief and determination, Rowan and her friends will stop at nothing when they track their enemy to the high desert in a final, deadly showdown.
Nervous Nellie’s nervousness necessitates knowledge of the novel. In other words …SPOILERS. *BEWARE*
Nervous Nellie says…
I like this series. The last book was a little on the lame side, but this one brings Rowan back with a vengeance. She’s ready to do battle with the thing that killed Carey and her friends.
Carey is not forgotten as he is mentioned a few times in this book. He does have a replacement, but he will never be forgotten. Genevieve the witch is back lending a hand as well. I wasn’t sure about her but she’s working her way into my good guy list.
The Blood Front is rearing it’s ugly head and in a place that is not the best political position for Clive. I know the First is cold and heartless, but he is so volatile that Rowan has to tread carefully to keep her husband alive. Which she does, so don’t worry.
The ending of this story took a surprising end for me. I really didn’t see it coming. With that being said, I’m not really sure that Rowan has had many dealings with this kind of creature, so maybe I can use that as an excuse.
Rowan does get the ever living stuffing beaten out of her as does Clive and others. The Dust Devils make an interesting appearance witch is pretty darn cool. It was a good story all in all and not at all like the last book. Whew. I was worried there.
