Blood Money by Chris Underwood

Reading and reviewing the stories in Eight in the Chamber anthology.  Reviewing book #2

Title: Blood Money
Author:  Chris Underwood

Publish Date:  July 8, 2018
Genre: Urban Fantasy

Publisher’s Description:

As Lost Falls’ resident folk wizard, I can track down anyone.

It should’ve been a simple job. Find the girl, bring her home.

Except she’s not just any girl. She’s the bloodslave of one of the most powerful vampires in town.

And I’m not sure she wants to be found.

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

Nervous Nellie says…

This is a review of the second story in the anthology.  I started reading Cunning Devil, so I sorta knew the premise but not the characters.  If you happen to pick up this anthology, don’t worry, there are no spoilers that will ruin anything.  It’s a good intro to the characters, what they do and what kind of trouble they find.

I liked this story plenty.  The writing is good and the protagonist is pretty good at what he does.  The world that the author has built has trolls, vampires and maybe more creatures that I haven’t met yet.  It appears that Lost Falls is a town that is home to quite a few supernatural creatures.  I don’t know the why of it yet.  I’ll probably learn a lot more when I finish book #1.

The author writes well.  I especially liked the risk Ozzy took to save the troll.  And I like the name Ozzy. All in all, the story was really good. I like what I read so I’ll proceed with book #1.  Oh, like I said, don’t worry about reading this story before the others.  It felt very stand alone-ish.  I figured out the character to a degree that I was not lost.
