Tangled Blood Lines by Deborah Noel
This is not your sweet sparkling vampire story. Old school vampires have resurfaced, responsible for brutal murders and more blood than anyone can cope with. In "Tangled Blood Lines", Cianna Fitzgerald, a young but "retired" crime scene investigator, finds herself back in a world she walked away from some years ago.
She grew up in twentieth century Pennsylvania countryside knowing she possesses superhuman powers from her "Irish pixie" bloodlines. She had retired after a particularly tough case where the victim was her husband's twin brother. After her brief respite from murders and homicides, Cianna witnesses a killing where the murderer is a vampire. Her daughter goes missing soon after the killing. Cianna and the love she had once pushed out of her life, her estranged husband Declan, travel halfway around the world to try to save their child.
As the mystery unravels, she learns that although she is a half breed, the other half isn't "Irish pixie" as she grew up believing weaving her into a more tangled history and frightening future than she had bargained for.
To be honest I’m not a big fan of gore or murder books. It took me a bit to get into but when I did Tangled Blood Lines was a wonderful book. Deborah Noel did a great job writing, the plot was good and the charters where very well written you got to know and understand them and what they went though. I will buy the next one I can’t wait to find out what happens, I will defiantly leave you wanting to know what happens next.
As you read you discover that the main characters Cianna and her estranged husband Declan are not ordinary folk. They powers that are passed down through the family, their daughter Mattie has to be the sweetest little girl and very smart.
When Cianna's work related demons come back to haunt her and as she digs deeper she finds that her world is really a lie, that vampires really do exist and a long with them Werewolves, Witches and outher sups. These vampires are not the nice kind either, they are responsible for brutal murders and more blood than anyone can cope with. When Cianna and Declan’s Daughter Mattie is kidnapped they will do anything to get her back safe. She will learn in the process what she is and what she can do. She was raised to believe she was one thing but the truth comes out and she has to come to terms with what she is. Will she embrace her future or will she rebel against it? Will she get what she loves most in the world back?
