BLOOD IS THICKER THAN SLAUGHTER Con artist-turned-radio-station-manager Ciara Griffin hopes to settle into a normal un-life as a fledgling vampire, with the help of her immortally hot fiancé, grunge DJ Shane McAllister. But she has bigger problems than finding a sane blood donor and a new home for those boxes of mac ‘n’ cheese. Ciara’s best friend mourns her like she’s dead instead of undead, and her own maker clearly wishes she’d never been born (again). Worst of all, the WVMP crew calls a Code Black: hippie vampire DJ Jim has murdered a pair of humans—humans who share Ciara’s true last name. That’s when trouble rolls out the red carpet, straight into Ciara’s life. At Shane’s first live concert, Ciara finds herself face to face with her Irish Traveller cousins, a not-so-welcome family reunion that might hold the key to Ciara’s anti-holy blood. Jim’s spiral into madness makes Ciara an unwilling prize in his deadly feud with Shane. As Ciara clings to what’s left of her humanity, she’ll need her new vampire strength—and old con artist cunning—now more than ever.
Review: I hadn't intended to read this, not because of dislike for the series, it's quite the contrary I really like the series, but due to time constraints. To many books and not enough time. The thing is when I started reading Lust for Life they were talking about this happening and that happening and I go wait... hold the phone, who did what now. So I went back and read this and I'm so happy that I did. It's a great in between to keep the story rolling.
Lots of interesting stuff going on, we see more of Ciara's "Traveller" family and learn there maybe more than meets the eye going on. Jim who was never really balance in my opinion goes off the deep end. True to form Ciara does her best to kill herself multiple time.
Compared to the books this moves very fast and is full of seat clinging action. All the familiar characters are present with some new ones who I wouldn't mind seeing again.
