    Michael Warren isn't your ordinary detective, he's a werewolf. With his partners, Tabitha and Sam Edwards (she's a witch and he's the I.T. guy), Michael takes on cases where the supernatural is the norm and it pays to be more than human. When his partner's niece, a talented witch named Samara, is kidnapped, Michael must journey to England to try and save her. He discovers more than meets the eye as a fanatic tries to use Samara's special magical abilities to bring an ancient goddess back into the world.

    If you could sum up Blood Sacrifice in three words, what would they be?

    Witty, intelligently written


    What other book might you compare Blood Sacrifice to and why?

    Jim Butcher's "The Dresden Files". Sort of the same style with a different take and perspective.


    Did Wyntner Woody do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    I was a little hard on Mr Woody at first and I feel bad about that. I cannot decide if he got better as the story progressed or if I was engrossed in the story. Either way I felt when the London Wolf Pack entered the picture he did a fair job. The other reviews on here are, in my opinion, a little rough on the guy. So to answer the question, YES.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Sure, I was engrossed in the story.


    Any additional comments?

    I met Nic Brown at a Lexington Comic Con in 2013, He was trying to push his book and I thought "oh great more junk". I asked if this title was on Audible, thinking it would not be, and he answered it was. I did have a few credits so I told him I would pick it up. As you can see I did and I am really glad I did. This story has a lot in common with Jim Butcher's books and I ate those up. I thought Nic Brown did a fantastic job and Wynter Woody did fine as well.

    Rachel Morgan is a runner with the Inderland Runner Services, apprehending law-breakers throughout Cincinnati. She's also a witch, one of the many Inderlanders who revealed themselves after a genetically engineered virus wiped out 50 percent of humanity. Witches, warlocks, vampires, werewolves: the creatures of dreams and nightmares have lived beside humans for centuries, hiding their powers. But now they've stopped hiding, and nothing will be the same.

    What about Marguerite Gavin’s performance did you like?

    She seemed to flow effortlessly between characters and scenes


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Ivy's reactions and efforts to control and addiction


    Any additional comments?

    This book was great. I was turned on to these books by a co worker since I loved the Dresden File Books by Jim Butcher. Please check out this series. I think you will enjoy them.

    Former bounty hunter Rachel Morgan has it pretty good. She has left the corrupt Inderland Runner Service and started her own independent service. She's survived werewolves, shape-changing demons, bad-hair days, and sharing a church with her vampire roommate, Ivy. She even has a cute (if human) boyfriend - what more could a witch want? But living with a reformed vampire isn't all it's cracked up to be.
