Review quote

"Choice and control are major themes of the newest Bloodhound Files outing. Despite humans being an extreme minority, FBI profiler Jace Valchek's pugnacious personality won't let her back down, even in the face of long odds. Barant continues to explore themes of persecution and discrimination with outsider Jace struggling to find her place. For Jace, events come to a life-changing crossroads, giving readers a true emotional punch. A steller addition to an already outstanding series." --RT Book Reviews (4 1/2 stars! TOP PICK!) "Snappy writing, a page-turning story and fresh world-building make Dying Bites a satisfying meal of a book." --Kelley Armstrong, New York Times bestselling author of Men of the Otherworld and The Awakening "Dying Bites is wacky, unpredictable, fresh and amazing. I would kill to write as well as D.D. Barant. Seriously." --Nancy Holder, author of Pretty Little Devils "This engrossing debut adds another captivating protagonist to the urban fantasy ranks...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 (starred review) "A heroine with plenty of guts, moxie and a sense of the absurd. [A] fresh and original take on urban fantasy...Huge kudos to Barant for spicing things up with a story that expertly integrates detective work, kick-butt action and a wacky sense of humor. Make sure you get in early on the outstanding new Bloodhound Files series." --Romantic Times "D D Barant builds a strong world and fills it with fascinating characters that will delight and entertain.

I'm looking forward to seeing more in this captivating world." --Darque Reviews (starred read) "Five stars. An exciting new series. It has humor, mystery, and adventure.
