Dying Bites -

Just finished this book -
It was ok - It had a slow start - but once I got towards the end - it got a little more exciting.
I kept hoping she would hook up with Cassius or Dr. Pete, but maybe next book :)
I am starting Death Blows tonight - it's picking up pretty well where it left off in Dying Bites - So I'm excited to read it.
Dying Bites is a pretty good book that leaves you guessing - I had thought of maybe 10 other different things that could have happened - but it always surprised me. Maybe some of the reading was little over my head.. scienctifically - or maybe because D.D. Barant left a lot of details out when writing this book.
Jace Valcheck did a lot of running around and solving crimes - and I had a hard time keeping up with how she figured everything out - but it was a good run

Here is what the back of the book says ...
Her job description is the “tracking and apprehension of mentally-fractured killers.” What thisreally 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 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…
The 3rd book - Killing Rocks comes out in December - I'm not sure if I will read it or not - but I have it on hold at the library just in case :)
