Publisher's Summary

Vicki Nelson, formerly of Toronto’s homicide unit and now a private detective, witnesses the first of many vicious attacks that begin plaguing the city of Toronto. As death follows unspeakable death, Vicki, in an attempt to stop these forces of dark magic, is forced to renew her tempestuous relationship with her former partner, Mike Celluci - along with another, unexpected ally…. Henry Fitzroy, the illegitimate son of King Henry VIII, has learned over the course of his long life how to blend with humans; how to deny the call for blood in his veins. Without him, Vicki and Mike would not survive the ancient force of chaos that has been unleashed upon the world - but in doing so, his identity may be exposed, and his life forfeited.

Not the usual vampire tale.

I enjoyed this book very much. The plot was was good. My only complaint is that this reader's voice didn't show any type of voice change for the flashbacks. I had several listen overs. I came the the conclusion twice that the download from audible.com to computer or computer to iPod got messed up. Due to the number & variety of flashbacks used to explain character's background & such I would suggest a brief music score to differentiate them.

Good characters, good premise

What did you like best about Blood Price? What did you like least?

I liked the characters and the plot or premise. The first 3/4 of the book were interesting.

The last 1/4 Vicki finds out that the girl she works for was the girlfriend of the first victim, close friend and last one to see a later victim common since says if you have no other leads you checkout everything to do with her relationship with the two. Since she was the last to see her friend before she died wouldn’t the police take a statement with everything that happened up to the point of the murder. Another reason to check the lead out is her friend, the victim was “choosen” unlike the others. Instead of this lead they all pass around the lead the murderer wears a black leather coat, really. Vicki is suppose to be the best excop ever?
The vampire gets the message to meet her and who the suspect is and he sits waiting for a phone call for the address or to confirm... for Four hours. He could have found out where the guy lived and went himself, waiting for a call Four hours, really. The world will end at twelve he waits by the phone until10:30.
The last quarter of the story was not good.

Would you recommend Blood Price to your friends? Why or why not?

Yes, it was the best of the last five books I have bought.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

She was good. You could tell the difference in characters. She could work on her men's voices a little. I always compare narrators to Tavia Gilbert, Kirsten Potter and Jennifer Ikeda.

Do you think Blood Price needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

I really liked Viki, Henry and Mike. They could have another supernatural murder to solve.
