Publisher's Summary

Her job description is the "tracking and apprehension of mentally-fractured killers". What this really means in FBI profiler Jace Valchek's brave new world - one in which only one percent of the population is human - is that a woman's work is never done. And real is getting stranger every day.
Jace has been ripped from her reality by David Cassius, the vampire head of the NSA. He knows that she's the best there is in the business, and David needs her help in solving a series of gruesome murders of vampires and werewolves. David's world - one that also includes lycanthropes and golems - is one with little knowledge of mental illness. An insane serial killer is a threat the NSA has no experience with. But Jace does.
Stranded in a reality where Bela Lugosi is a bigger box office draw than Bruce Willis and every full moon is Mardi Gras, Jace must now hunt down a fellow human before he brings the entire planet to the brink of madness. Or she may never see her own world again....

Critic Reviews

"Barant's well-developed world offers intriguing enhancements to mythology and history. Jace is remarkable, strong-willed and smart, and she sets an unstoppable pace. Look for the Bloodhound Files to go far." ( Publishers Weekly)

Not a yawner!

A nice new twist to the old recipe. Not a romance book no sex scenes to speak off but a really good story. Had me giggling a few times which is always a plus in a book.

Johanna Parker does a fantastic narration. It was her narration that encouraged the purchase of this book.

Worth the credit, looking forward to listening to the rest of the series.

3 stars is not a reflection at all. I tend to rate pretty tough since I read a lot of this genre. I realized that I would have to get tougher in my ratings so the really really good ones didn't miss out.

5 STARS = Really really fantastic, has me laughing and crying and I stalk the author waiting for the next book.

4 STARS = Leaves me feeling good about every aspect of the story, Authors website is in my favourites and I look for the next story they put out.

3 STARS = Good book, good story, not a waste of a credit at all. Enjoyed it.

2 STARS = Mediocre story or bad narration, not really going to look for the next book and will think twice before using a credit on it.

1 STAR = Sucks, won't waste my time on this again and may not have finished it.

Great Series

Jace is a special FBI agent who is recruited by the authorities of a parallel universe to hunt and capture a sociopathic serial killer. In this new parallel world humans make up the minority of the population, with the majority consisting of vamps, weres and gollums. As mental illness is almost exclusively a human condition, this world finds itself ill equipped to deal with the problem of a human serial killer targeting the other races. Jace, a specialist in this field, has been recruited from earth and cannot return until the killer is caught.

This was a great read with equal amounts of action and fantasy and just a dash of romance. Jace is a witty 'bad ass' heroine who kept my interest in her story right through out. The narrator did a decent job and there were no annoying distractions or odd quirks which detracted from the story. All in all it was a good audio and, as the second book in the series has been published in book form for a while now, hopefully the series will continue in audio soon.
