Publisher's Summary

Sergeant Duncan O'Conner has seen it all before. Beautiful erotic dancer murdered at home, no suspect, no motive. But there's one clue: She's missing her heart. It's enough to make the hard-bitten Kansas City cop enlist the help of a necro - one of the dead-channeling freaks who live in the domed city of nearby Valhalla. It's a long shot, but desperate crimes call for desperate measures. Unlike the other "high-bloods" in Valhalla, Callie Brown considers her abilities a gift, not a curse. But when she reads the dancer's final thoughts, she senses a powerful presence blocking her vision. This is no ordinary homicide. This is the work of a legendary necromancer who controls souls. A ravenous force that will put Callie's skills to the test, O'Conner's career at risk, and both their hearts on the line...literally.

I don't have much time to write reviews but I couldn't miss telling you how much I loved this book! It may have been helped by the talented Mr. Frangione but this seemed so much like a book by JR Ward. THe story was great! I can't wait to see where it leads us! I don't want to give anything away but if you have histories like mine don't let this great read pass you by...

First Thoughts when Finished: Born in Blood was my first time reading Alexandra Ivy and it won't be my last.

Story Thoughts: Incredible world building and an interesting mystery. I was really impressed by how much I enjoyed the case at the center of Born in Blood. It was well though out, executed well, and had me hooked from beginning to end. I wasn't really invested in the romance part of the story though. I think that had more to do with the characters than the story though.

Character Thoughts: I am going to admit it took awhile for me to warm up to both Duncan and Callie. I didn't dislike them but they didn't make me want to root for them either. About 3/4 of the way through the book though I began to really start liking them. I did like the side characters though and can't wait for the BF/Guardian story. That is a couple that I am already rooting for! :)

Audio Thoughts:

Narrated By Jim Frangione / Length: 10 hrs and 56 mins

Jim's voice is sex on a stick! I love his male voices and his pacing is wonderful. It always takes me a minute to warm up to his female voices but once I do they flow really good too.

Final Thoughts: I am looking forward to book 2!
