Vicki Nelson, ex-cop and now a private eye, is asked by her friend Henry Fitzroy, vampire and illegitimate son of Henry VIII a historical character, who died at age 17 , to save some friends of his from a sniper. The Heerkens family live on a sheep farm outside the town or city of London, Ontario - it was This was a re-read of volume 2 of a series that I remember enjoying, and I had remembered that this was one of my favourites so it was a disappointment that it fell a bit flat this time around.
The Heerkens family live on a sheep farm outside the town or city of London, Ontario - it was unclear in the book how big the place was. They are wer, which - as a nice twist - are a different species - werewolves are born, not made in this world. The author does a nice job of making them sufficiently inhuman in their focus on the present, inability to back down when their dominance is challenged - they simply have to go and guard the sheep at night making themselves a target - and dislike of crowded human spaces as smelly and noisy.
Given Vicki's night blindness caused by her progressive eye disease, Henry drives her there and stays in a sealed room during the day, emerging at night to provide the cover needed when she is unable to operate. Yet he is quite ineffectual, becoming a target himself at one point.
Meanwhile, Mike Celluci, Detective and Vicki's friend and partner in more than one sense, investigates Henry's background, becoming convinced he must be involved in organised crime, and eventually turns up to tell her so, but becomes embroiled in the investigation into the two previous deaths of Heerkens family members. My disappointment with this book is that it seems awfully dragged out and Vicki rather dim frankly - it wasn't too difficult to determine who the initial killer was, although the water was eventually muddied with another villain operating for different motives.
But although Vicki obviously does not have the resources she had as a police officer, I kept wondering why Celluci couldn't have checked whether anyone had a military background which would have made this a much shorter book! Also, Henry is very much in a back seat role - he does play a key part in the denoument but is quite a minor character otherwise.
A minor issue I had was that it got rather confusing as to who was who with the adult wer characters, given that every character has two names, one for human form and one for wer form. I could keep the main younger characters straight, but the relationships of the adults were not easy to follow. The eventual solution relies on very old tech - reading through paper records - although at least the plot did not hinge on whether or not people could get through on landlines as in book 1 - I accept that the books were written in the late s to early s, but I think that aspect would deter younger readers.
As with book 1, we do have sections in the viewpoints of the villains, but the second one to join in with the killing spree was not very convincing. The denoument does rely on a character acting stupidly but at least it wasn't one of the protagonists and was acceptable for that particular person. As such a relationship - as opposed to Henry going out and hunting someone who is not a consenting adult - involves a sexual relationship, it is a bit strange that this has been going on for months while Vicki hesitates about following through on her attraction to Henry and Henry has been waiting for her to make the first move.
It isn't the prior relationship between him and Tony that seems to bother her either, but the fact that Henry has been able to get Tony off the streets, something she couldn't do - she is more jealous of that than anything. I found it a bit 'dodgy' that someone, presumably vulnerable, has been brought into such a role, even though he has been fed and clothed well as part of the deal: as a Tudor royal, Henry feels responsible for "his people".
And view spoiler [ when Vicki and Henry finally do get together the whole thing is rather a damp squib, based purely on a need for blood, and doesn't really gell with the love we have been told he feels for her hide spoiler ]. So on balance given those issues I can only rate this as a 3-star read. I did enjoy this book, to an extent. H I did enjoy this book, to an extent. She first met Tony when he was 15, and has used him as her eyes and ears on the street, while also trying to look after him. For one thing: Tony and Henry having a sexual relationship before Vicki and Henry sort of deflated the sexual tension for me.
Vicki has been looking out for Tony since he was 15, and Tony has likewise looked up to Vicki as an icon of sorts. Not cool! This feels great. Sure, four hundred years may have hardened him to the world and being undead would certainly impact his personality… but this scene just felt so mechanical and unemotional. I know vampires are cold, but that is just ridiculous. I think this book really would have benefited from some descriptive sex scenes. Vicki only wants Henry for his body. And if it is… then why do I care about these characters and their relationship?
To be fair, I am only 2 books into this series. Henry is still very much the mysterious vampire — though we do garner a few more bits and pieces of his life like his time as a spy in WWII.
"Sydneyn satamapoliisit" Blood Trail (TV Episode ) - IMDb
Typically vampire characters fall into one of two categories — monster or lover. Writers either go the route of blood-sucking fiends, or neck-sucking Lotharios. I can appreciate that Huff is writing in Henry a vampire who is a bit more grounded in reality. The werewolf mythology is wonderful and unique, and I enjoyed the introduction of some new secondary characters. But the big pit-fall for me lay in the development or lack thereof of Vicki and Henry, both as individuals, and as a couple.
Jan 24, Deborah Ideiosepius rated it really liked it Shelves: supernatural , reading-challenge , fantasy , urban-fantasy. This is the second in Tanya Huff's 'Blood' series that I am currently re-reading. In this one, our leading lady Vicky Nelson, PI in Toronto, ex cop, is called upon to help a family living in a rural Canadian town with the dubious name of London.
I don't don't you Tanya; Canada has some interesting names, and I am Australian so no judgement from me The difficulty with this case is that the family are being shot at when they are not looking too human and they are unwilling to go to the police. It is kind of difficult to tell the law that they are werewolves and were shot while in canine form, you see. This was a really enjoyable book, I loved the amount of detail that went into making the wer family real so much from canine behaviour and pack mentality was integrated in the story which was well written and had a effortless feel to it.
It seemed to me as though the author really loved and understood dogs and had enjoyed meshing canine and human together to make a fascinating suite of characters. I would recommend that reading the first in the 'blood' series would enhance one's enjoyment of this novel if you plan on reading it. The characters and situational tensions between them rely heavily on the first novel. It was lovely to not have to read through pages of recapping previous books, like some of them insist on doing, but the reader who has not read the first one will lose a lot.
A very fun, quite well written supernatural fiction. May 22, keikii Eats Books rated it it was amazing. To read more reviews in this series and others, check out keikii eats books! Vicki Nelson and Henry Fitzroy travel to a family farm to investigate who is killing members of a family. A family of werewolves. They cannot go to the police, because they do not want anyone to know what they are.
And, the only real suspects are people close to the family. Seriously, this was so cute. I love this family of werew To read more reviews in this series and others, check out keikii eats books! I love this family of werewolves. They aren't human, they've never been human. They don't exactly act human, though they can fake it for a bit.
They act like wolves who can be human. It is just so cute. The supernatural creature is not the bad guy in Blood Trail. The supernatural creature is the the cute thing you have to protect. I love it. Once again, it is more about the people than it is about the story. It is about what a human will do when they find out about the supernatural. It explores the human conditions: religion, brotherhood, friends, and duty. It explores what a family would do to preserve the life of someone they love, while also trying to preserve their way of life.
It also shows what someone feels when they have to stand with your family, even if it goes against what you believe in. Blood Trail also has some of the most "real" characters I've read in some time.

It isn't just Vicki and Henry that feel real. No, the entire family of werewolves do, as well as their friends and neighbors.
Every single side character feels like they have their own personality, their own backstory. This is for characters we will never see again in the series. The center isn't on the main characters, and the reader is left to fill in the blanks. I love the people in this book the mostest. Vicki continues to be awesome, and she is starting to explore the limits of her visual disability.
Henry and Mike got on my nerves though. Oh my god the male jealousy, more on Mike's side than on Henry's. Henry is mostly okay with sharing, Mike just keeps poking and poking at Vicki's relationship with Henry.

It is super stressful, and I feel a bit sorry for Vicki over it all. It must also be said that Vicki slips into the supernatural life incredibly easy, like she is made for this type of life. I do enjoy this. The way she straddles the line between normal and supernatural, Henry and Mike do make for an enjoyable book. The story itself wasn't anything I haven't seen before. Again, that isn't the fault of the author, just the fact that I have read a lot of this genre and this came first. I enjoyed the writing more, though. It skips around a lot less.
There are still multiple perspectives and time periods, but it is much easier to follow and get into. This is just a better book than Blood Price. Definitely looking forward to seeing again just where this story takes me. Shelves: fantasy-and-sci-fi , ebook , crime-thriller. I liked this book better than the previous one.
The supporting cast was more present and interesting. In this story Vicki finds herself heading out from Toronto to rural Canada. Henry is asked to help in uncovering who killed a few of his old friends from a family he has been in contact with since WWII, and he asks Vicki to go with him. Mike gets into the mix too about half-way through, and messes things up a bit. A fun thing about the story was that it takes place in the high heat of the summer, I liked this book better than the previous one.
A fun thing about the story was that it takes place in the high heat of the summer, August. I read it in August, beginning it just as I was waiting for the bus, trying not to faint from the heat. The detective story was interesting, and the ending reminded me a bit of the kind of stories I saw in Japanese detective dramas. It was slightly bittersweet.
Again, about half-way through, we were told who the killer was, and got to see it a bit from their perspective. I'd really prefer it if Tanya Huff hadn't done that, but maybe it was a thing in the 90s. I mostly read historical fiction back then. It did give another perspective though, however briefly. In the story we do see some progression in Vicki's and Henry's relationship, but not a lot, which is a bit disappointing at times. It's not really the sizzling vampire romance, but I don't mind all that much, since I'm not a fan of romance.
In fact, Henry is not present a lot in the story at all, just at some important points. The focus is more on Vicki, and the other family. As can be expected, it's not an ordinary family. Without trying to spoil it, I'll just say that I enjoyed learning about their way of life, their habits.
I also grew to like the whole family, especially the twins. This lead me to care for them, and the situation they were in. Overall, the story was entertaining, and a quick read. I recommend it to people who like a simple detective story with a supernatural twist. If you like a lot of romance, this is not for you. It can be read in a few days.
The only reason it took me so long was that I read another novel at the same time. Cross-posted at Unapologetic Reviews This is the second Vicky Nelson book I've read and have to say that I didn't think it was as good as the first. Throughout the first half of the book, Mike and Henry were barely mentioned. One of the reasons I enjoyed the first book so much was because of the dynamics between all three leading characters. Missed it this time. Had plenty of Vicky present, but got a little tired of all the werewolf stuff.
Not only that, but I found the cast confusing - each werewolf had a 'wolf' name plus a 'human This is the second Vicky Nelson book I've read and have to say that I didn't think it was as good as the first. Not only that, but I found the cast confusing - each werewolf had a 'wolf' name plus a 'human' name. There were so many introduced I couldn't keep them straight and just gave up figuring out who was who and just kept reading. Much more action instead of shlepping back and forth following a paper trail, plus Mike and Henry join in the action. Oh, one more other thing, there was the expression 'Vicky slid her glasses up her nose' over and over again.
Either get this girl to an optometrist for a better fitting set of glasses or just tape them to her head! Story was interesting enough, but it felt like each day Vicky was on the case, it was the same old, same old. I'm looking forward to reading the next in the series to see what plays out. Sep 15, Carolyn F. I was on the fence of who the bad guys were but I did have it narrowed down to two when their characters were introduced, so pat myself on the back.
I like that the heroine isn't perfect. Towers over most men, including one of her love interests, and is slowly losing her sight. This book has both. A very small amount of romantic encounters. Most of the fade-to-black kind with lo I was on the fence of who the bad guys were but I did have it narrowed down to two when their characters were introduced, so pat myself on the back. Most of the fade-to-black kind with lots of unrequited passion. Vicki is asked by Henry to help some werewolf friends who are being assassinated or murdered, both words work. They can't figure out who is doing it and need her help.
Henry thinks this is his chance to have some alone time with Vicki. For someone who professes that he wants a closer relationship, he sure pushes her away a lot. It's a good thing she has her ex-partner around. She's not a one-woman gal. I'm going to read the third book, but I'm going to put it at the end of my library request list. View all 3 comments. Jan 21, Amy Grossman rated it really liked it. This is the second novel from Tanya Huff's Blood Ties series, and it keeps getting better and better guess it usually works that way! I'm glad I just watched season 2 of the Blood Ties television series, because this book mirrored one of the episodes within that season I love comparing the details between the two!

However, the family mem This is the second novel from Tanya Huff's Blood Ties series, and it keeps getting better and better guess it usually works that way! Danger and mystery ensue, as the reader, along with Vicky Nelson, try to figure out who the killer is. Her longtime ex-partner in law enforcement, Michael Cellucci, follows her to the farm because of his jealousy of vampire Henry Fitzroy, which is definitely warranted.
Great read all around! I reread Blood Price relative recently, and after watching a few more episodes of the Blood Ties TV series, I wanted to go back to the source material again. Hooray for books sitting waiting on my Kindle. I really enjoyed this all over again. I had forgotten a lot of the detail, and it was lovely to revisit with Vicki, Mike and Henry. I find the books relatively timeless - except for the cell phone thing - so every now and then a reference will surprise me, but I find that to be part of the fun.

When I read these books originally this was my least favourite, but it grows on me with each re-read. So often in supernatural tales vampires and werewolves go hand in hand, it has almost got to the point where it is a requirement, but Huff does well here in that her werewolves are different to those so often portrayed in other books.
I also like that Huff doesn't really string out Celluci not knowing what Henry is well, at the least knowing he is not-human , nor does she give us a typical love When I read these books originally this was my least favourite, but it grows on me with each re-read. I also like that Huff doesn't really string out Celluci not knowing what Henry is well, at the least knowing he is not-human , nor does she give us a typical love triangle.
These books seem more grounded and adult without the usual angst that follows love triangles - a welcome departure in my opinion. I enjoyed this book. It is fluff but enjoyable fluff. I like the fact that this is a brake away from the usual soft vampire porn that most vampire books are. Nov 18, Corinne rated it it was amazing Shelves: fantasy , to-rebuy-as-ebook , crime-murder-sleuthing , vampires-a-o-upyrs , werewolves. This was by far the best book in this series. I thought the werewolf-sharpshooter was original and the way Tanya Huff described the group dynamics within the werewolf clan were original.
Oct 06, Midnight Voss rated it liked it Shelves: supernatural , vampires. Blood Trail was my least favorite installment of the Vicki Nelson series. I'm not sure if that's because the precepts of the series work less well with this plot or because I have such high expectations for werewolf stories. In this book, Vicki and Henry go out to London, Ontario to solve the murder of some werewolves.
Henry Fitzroy happens to be a friend of the family! Instead, Huff establishes werewolves as an independent species. The moon isn't the ruling factor in their lives. They aren't cursed. Silver means nothing. The wer are what they are all the time and they are very capable of being killed by mundane means. They just happen to turn into wolves, y'know, and have heightened senses. As always, it's fun to see werewolves going without clothes, but it's clear that if they are wearing ANY clothes, they cannot change I'm not sure that's realistic.
But it does lead to their neighbors thinking they are nudists. Some of the details surrounding wer life are deeply uncomfortable, however. Read the rest of the review at my blog. Jul 12, Amber rated it really liked it.

With that in mind, I see all characters as those portrayed in the TV show which is really only trouble when it comes to Vicki as in the show she's in her mid 30's and not blond. As it's own, the book isn't much of a standalone--yet it is at the same time. There is a lot of references between Vicki, Henry, and Celluci that if you didn't read the first novel, you may scratch your head in confusio I admit straight away that I'm reading this novel because of the Canadian TV show, Blood Ties There is a lot of references between Vicki, Henry, and Celluci that if you didn't read the first novel, you may scratch your head in confusion.
Yet I'm fairly confidant to suggest that if you can't read the first book, you'll get along fine with this one. The mystery is fairly well covered and it feels like a dime-crime novel, so it's quite fun and easy to breeze through. I can't say it's aged very well in one category--Vicki's age. She's 29 or 31 in the book if I remember correctly but berates herself on being "so old" that I want to kick her butt myself. Apr 30, Alexis rated it really liked it Shelves: fantasy. I'll round this up to a four. I wish Goodreads let you put half stars. I enjoyed this more than the first book, which was a lot of fun to read, but I had also thought the conclusion was a little anticlimactic.
This book did not have that problem. The plot is straightforward, but well paced. I thought the solution to the mystery was a little predictable, but it was fun watching the characters get there. As with the first book, I really enjoyed how the main character is struggling to come to terms I'll round this up to a four. As with the first book, I really enjoyed how the main character is struggling to come to terms with disability, something that gets even more fleshed out here.
