Publisher's Summary

If there is one city that Scarlett Bernard hates, it's Las Vegas. But when the cardinal vampire of Los Angeles convinces her to go investigate a new vampire-themed stage show, Scarlett quickly finds herself shoulder-deep in sequins, slot machines, and Old World intrigue.
The show's creators are vampire celebrities Arthur and Lucy Holmwood, who once inspired characters from the original Dracula. Now, however, they have no qualms about announcing their true status to the human world, endangering the secrecy of the Old World and Scarlett's mission to keep it hidden.
But before she can begin untangling the Holmwoods' motives, Scarlett also discovers that their new production has attracted more than just fans: Las Vegas's many vampires are suddenly disappearing, and rumors are flying that actual vampire hunters may have followed Arthur and Lucy to town.
Now, without her allies, her bargest, or her frequent partner Jesse Cruz, Scarlett must navigate a new underworld of secrets and murders in a city where nothing is ever as it seems. And the stakes have never been higher.

Good but I miss my friends

We find Scarlett and Molly living together again. Scarlett has free time now that her and Eli are no longer a couple. She works freelance as a null and has the bragast, Shadow. Shadow did not get sufficient storytime. Not fair!

If you have been following this series from the beginning, you can see Scarlett has grown a back bone, developed her nulling skills and acquired fighting skills. She meets Dashiell as an equal, even makes demands. Her strength of character is demonstrated when meeting Silvo, the cardinal vampire of the city of Los Vegas, she does not back down and even calls him a wimp.

Scarlett reluctantly finds herself in Los Vegas, far from her cohorts. Dashiell needs someone to check out a Vegas show. Scarlett goes with her sister-in-law and her friends. She is pissed in how Dashiell forced her to do it and like child is going to stick to the letter of what was asked for her to do. After reporting her findings getting mouthy with Dashiell, he thanks her for scouting the area and leaves her to resolve the vampire problem in Los Vegas.

While in Vegas, the paranormals come to her for help, there are missing vampires and with a wimpy vampire cardinal for Vegas, people cannot get help. Scarlett is the famous null. She has to help, right? Despite the need to keep her traveling party safe, her loyalty to an old friend is the catalyst that gets her in the fight. She puts together a fighting group and kick ass.

There is a void from the characters we have come to enjoy; the snarky back and forth conversation with Jesse, the talks and rescues from Will and evenings with Molly. That turn out to be okay because we get to see how Scarlett can handle herself.

Even though many of my favor characters are not in the story, it was good to see how strong Scarlett has grown and how she takes down Vegas.

Good listen!

Scarlett once again finds herself involved in vampire politics, corruption, murder, & mayhem. We meet a few additional characters whose overall support was well written. The book does end with a surprise (which I wondered if it would happen :)). The narrator did a great job!

You never see it coming till it arrives

A really good follow up story with plenty of excitement and action and a story line that kept me guessing all the way through, ending in a block buster last sentence. Wow . Highly recommended both books and the narration is top class

Blood gamble

People from Scarlett's passed just keep popping up, plenty of action and intrigued all the way through, and what a cliff hanger can,t wait for number three. Amy McFadden has again done an excellent job of narrating Melissa F. Olson' s Blood Gamble. She kept me hooked , an excelled series all round. please both of you keep upon the good work.
