Concise Book Reviews by Michelle
In Blood and Whiskey, the saga continues with Lissie, Tucker, Lenny, and Dad, and even the Blue Heeler dog Rex. There is lots to do dealing with the International Assembly of Vampires descending upon Lone Pine (Tiny town in Wyoming). This part of the politics, reminds me of the True Blood (Sookie Stackhouse series) to a certain extent, and having the manufactured blood too. BUT, these authors use plenty of quirky dialogue and many twists, to keep it from being too much like it. I will say, I do like the part of this world that the Vampires are able to "smell, sense" evil, and are encouraged to help purge us from these Evil humans, they are supposed to "taste" better too. That I like, kindof like vampire vigilantes, lol
The storyline I noticed is very fast paced, and keeps you interested, It was hard to put the book down, once I started. I was surprised at the unique combination of genres. Kathleen McFall and Clark Hays create a great paranormal romance that is full of drama, action, romance and danger, but they still keep a charm of the Western genre. It's very unique, nothing I have ever seen before.
They make it where we can really relate to the characters. I found myself really liking Lizzie, and Tucker. I can see the struggles she has, and feel for her.
She has so much to deal with, one being pregnant, and that's a first as far as they know, and being Queen, since her father is dead. She also is pressured to prove herself by turning a human into a vampire, as in this book, not just any vamp can do it.
This book really is good, and I do not want to spoil anything, so wont say too much about all the twist and turns, and non-stop excitement that takes place. Just know, if you like some paranormal, and adventure, action, and suspense, you will love this book. I had not read the first book yet, but I was able to catch on really quick, so it's not necessary, but I will go and read the first too now, as I loved this one so much.
A cute teaser here for you:
A knock at the door interrupted. "Lizzie, you all right?" asked Dad.
"Yes, Mr. Bates, I'm fine. Thanks for checking."
"You thinking about coming out of there soon? Are you feeling sick or something?"
"I'm good. Do you have any glue out there?"
There was a long pause. "Is this some sort of Vampire thing I don't really want to know about?"
"No," she said with a laugh, looking at the letter in her hand. "It's more of a scrapbook kind of a thing. I need to add something important."
"Let me see what I can rustle up," he said as his footsteps trailed off into the kitchen.
Give it a try, its first rate writing. You won't be sorry
