My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Kansas City Sergeant Duncan O’Conner’s murder investigation solicits the help of necromancer, Callie Brown, to help solve the paranormal case. What Callie discovers is the work of a powerful necromancer who should not exist. Working together they need to stop the murderer and try not to become the next casualty.
The world they live in has a lot of trust issues between the supernatural community, better known as high-bloods or freaks and humans. They need to overcome prejudices in order to work with each other.
I enjoyed that the characters discovered things about themselves throughout the novel that enable them to grow as individuals and accept details about themselves.
Alexandra Ivy is off to a great start with this new series. She does a good job at making the story seem believable. Born in Blood has fast pace action that will keep you guessing.
