Blurb for Blood of the Earth:
When Nell Ingram met skinwalker Jane Yellowrock, she was almost alone in the world, exiled by both choice and fear from the cult she was raised in, defending herself with the magic she drew from her deep connection to the forest that surrounds her.
Now, Jane has referred Nell to PsyLED, a Homeland Security agency policing paranormals, and agent Rick LaFleur has shown up at Nell’s doorstep. His appearance forces her out of her isolated life into an investigation that leads to the vampire Blood Master of Nashville.
Nell has a team—and a mission. But to find the Master’s kidnapped vassal, Nell and the PsyLED team will be forced to go deep into the heart of the very cult Nell fears, infiltrating the cult and a humans-only terrorist group before time runs out…
Misty’s review of FLAME IN THE DARK
My decision to read Blood of the Earth is because I read Faith Hunter’s Jane Yellowrock series and loved it. Blood of the Earth is the start of a new series.
Although I received a free advanced reading copy for review, my opinions are my own.
Nell draws her magic from the earth. Jane Yellowrock sent PsyLED to her for help. At first Nell is reluctant to help because she would have to go into the cult that she escaped. She didn’t want anything to do with this cult.
Nell helps PsyLED agents and is recruited to become an agent. Now Nell is no longer alone and she not only has her team she also has her family back. She is working on reconnecting with her family that she was isolated from by her own choice. She is happy to have her family back in her life.
Do I Recommend?
Yes I do recommend this series. Especially to the ones that have read the Jane Yellowrock series. This is one series that I will be rereading in the future.
My Rating: 5 out of 5 stars (A)
