Urban Fantasy Review: Bloodlines by Skyla Dawn Cameron

Bloodlines by Skyla Dawn Cameron (Demons of Oblivion #1)

review request from the author

Synopsis from Goodreads
After three hundred years of unlife, vampire Zara Lain has seemingly done it all, and she's now making a living as a successful thief-turned-assassin. Her newest assignment seems simple enough--kill the aging leader of the O'Connor Coven and his only heir, and she'll have another ten million in the bank. But in the dangerous world of the supernatural, few things are ever "simple."
When a massive assault decimates the continent's population of powerful witches and warlocks, and its orchestrator has vampires being hunted down and captured, Zara realizes the tables have turned and now she'll be playing the hero. Forced to join with a smart-mouthed fellow vampire, a demonologist who's also a fan of hers, a recently widowed--and frequently brooding--warlock, and her best friend's mom, Zara's grudgingly willing to do what she can to save the day. If only people would stop ruining all her outfits...

What a riot this book was! I felt like rediscovering what the genre of urban fantasy is about all over again. Loved it!

Zara Lane was a snarkalicious, wonderful, cheeky and at the same time ruthless heroine. She is an assassin for hire with only a few friends, so when an order taken from one of them sends her into a trap and all hell breaks loose, Zara is seriously pissed off.

Enter a gorgeous, rogue warlock, his friend Peter, - a bookish demonologist, and a fellow vamp with no morals. Add an inter dimensional, inter species conspiracy intent on ruling the world of supernatural, a whole lot of shooting and fighting, some sexy times and a great love story, and I was bloody hooked.

A winsome heroine, non-stop action, and a heart-breaking ending with constant stream of snark equals to a great read in my book. Very much recommended!

Очень даже хорошее городское фэнтези! Я читала с огромным удовольствием, ведь так не часто авторам жанра удаётся правильно совместить все элементы.

Книга читается на одном духу с нон-стоп экшн, прекрасными главными героями и непрекращающимся потоком сарказма.

Зара Лэйн - вампир и ассассин мирового масштаба. Когда одна из её немногочисленных подруг нанимает её  для убийства лидера враждебного её семье ведьмовского ковена, Зара соглашается не моргнув и глазом. Только простая работа превращается в кошмар, когда она понимает что её подставили, и теперь разъярённая вампирша, пытается докопаться до сути заговора между измерениями, ккоторый подвергает опасности все виды паранормальных существ. 

Зара, молодой сексапильный ведьмак Ник, его друг демонолог и ещё один совершенно аморальный вампир, - единственные, кто готов бороться против мира и ожидать победить. Классная история, с разбивающей сердце концовкой. Очень советую.

I remember this one, I also thought it was fun. Zara is a different kind of vamp, and I am looking forward to seeing how the rest of the books play out. I think I am waiting for book three, I should see if it has come out yet.

In case of zombie apocalypse

Hey, guys! I feel like I should say this just in case :)
If you'd like to sponsor a fellow book addict who sometimes can't sleep at night worrying that she won't have enough books to read if internet goes down in the event of zombie apocalypse (I'm convinced it's one of the top five ways to go for human race) you can donate through Paypal to olivesandacorns at gmail dot com or buy a book through any of the links provided with my reviews which will send me a small percentage from the sale. All proceeds will go towards my enormous TBR. I will also shelter you on the remote farm in Portugal when zombie apocalypse starts provided you survive getting there. There will be books, yay?
Thank you! Love you all
