Publisher's Summary

FBI profiler Jace Valchek was pulled into this parallel realm to hunt for Aristotle Stoker, a human serial killer who preys on vampires and werewolves. Now she works for the National Security Agency of the Unnatural States of America - and her boss is a vampire.
At a bizarre crime scene, Jace finds a bloodsucker murdered by magic, fried to the bone, and dressed in the costume of the comic book hero The Flash - a character who isn't supposed to exist here. Comic books have been outlawed for their powers, including crossover spells like the one that transported Jace to this world. Soon, she's following a trail of dead bodies into the sinister underworld of black-market comics - where a deranged madman gives new meaning to the term "super-villain."

Very Creative Thinking

Any additional comments?

This book is one of my favorites in the series. Relationships are evolving, and new characters are being introduced (including a dog). And be aware: Don't get too distracted or you'll be playing catch up during the big reveal. There's a lot of creative concepts packed into this one.
The narration seemed a bit rushed at times. I didn't notice this during the last book, and it won't stop me from downloading the next.

Just as good as the 1st!

What made the experience of listening to Death Blows the most enjoyable?

Johanna Parker's vocal talent continues to blow me away! She has a real gift for narration and story telling.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I really liked Dr. Pete. He turned out to be a complex character, yet still very likable.

Which character – as performed by Johanna Parker – was your favorite?

Of course Jace is my favorite and Gretchen is a close second. I love Jace's humor and introspection. It is a perfect balance to Gretchen's refinement.

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


Any additional comments?

Death Blows took my emotions on quite a roller coaster ride. I laughed, cried, got angry, and experienced a good chunk of nostalgia. That's how you know a book - especially an audible one - has done its job :)
