For centuries, the werewolves of Toronto have managed to live in peace and tranquility, hidden quietly away on their London, Ontario farm. But now, someone has learned their secret - and is systematically massacring this ancient race. The only one they can turn to is Henry Fitzroy, Toronto-based vampire and writer of bodice rippers.
Forced to hide from the light of day, Henry can’t hunt the killer alone so he turns to Vicki Nelson for help. As they race against time to stop the murderer, they begin to fear that their combined talents may not be enough to prevent him from completing his deadly plan.

Must read for vampire lovers

Urban supernatural mystery thriller about a partially blind detective and a vampire romance author. It is a series which can be read as a s stand alone without t a lot of the repetitive background. Henry Fitzroy is the illegitimate son of Henry the VIII and Vicki is a former Toronto, Ontario police detective. She was great at her job and loved her job. If is was not for the retinosa pigmentosa. She is going blind; she has lost her night vision and most of her peripheral vision.

With her night vision disability and Henry's day light disability they make the perfect detective team. Supernatural creatures are not the norm in Toronto so there is a learning / teaching curve between the vampire and detective. There is romantic tension between Henry, Vicki and Mike Celluci; Vicki's former police partner and sometime lover.

When Henry friends (wearwolves) need some detective skills, Henry gets Vicki to help out. The Blood Trail series formula is a mystery (initiated by one of the main characters), introduction of a supernatural event / character and rivalry between the guys over Vicki and a sexual triss to add spice.

Different era, Brings back Memories and good story

Let me start by saying that I Like this narrator. Other reviews are hard on her, but I think she fits the personality of Vicky, the main Hard nosed ex-cop trying to cope with being a private eye personality. I think she is an asset to the books, rather than a hindrance. When you first hear her, she comes off as tying to hard to be a sexy voice, but that settles down within a minute or so to be the "edge" of Vicky. She does the French Vampire that turned Henry very well, so well in fact that I had Goosebumps the first time I heard that Vampire speak. I think she fits the personality of the series.

About the books - and as I don't want to give away the story - I do believe that people need to realize that this book was written in the 1980s, before cell phones, when phones were mounted on a kitchen wall attached to a cord. The longer the cord, the richer you were. The days when a quarter would pay for a payphone call, and there were payphones everywhere. When most people only had 1 car per family. That brought me back to my childhood and the frustrations that went along with it. And My, how times have changed!

The author does a great job at bringing the werewolves to life as not only persons/wolves within the pack but also delves a great deal into the psyche behind them, making it very clear that werewolves are NOT humans. They may look like humans, but the wolf is the most important character of them. Nor are they animals. They are uniquely themselves. Even the minor werewolf characters were well developed.

I'm not going to say anything about the plot, but I'm glad the author didn't give her characters anything. They had to really work to accomplish what they achieved. I'm also glad that unlike so many vampires, that Henry doesn't have millions in the bank, but has a job just like the rest of us to make ends meet. It makes it a bit more realistic.
