Title: Blood Conspiracy (Brooklyn Shadows #2)
Author: Brock Deskins
I’ve spent the last year cleaning up the mess Percy left after his failed coup. It isn’t glamorous, but it’s a job, and it pays well enough.
Percy altered the Cure in a way to make it easier to create his little vampire army, but his new vampires have attitude problems and are worse at playing by the rules than I am, and they are the mess I’m trying to clean up. No biggie, I’m pretty good at that kind of housecleaning. The only problem is that someone called the cops on Percy’s little house party.
Homeland security got hold of the new and improved Cure, made their own vampire anti-terrorist unit, and dropped them into freaking Yemen. Like most ill-conceived government projects, this one went bad real fast, and guess who has to fix it? Now I have to hunt down and kill these rogue vampires, take on the US government, and destroy all evidence of our existence. And, oh yeah, there’s a freaking bomb in my head.
This story begins with cynical vampire Leo, and we follow him through a whole mess of shenanigans. Since I came into this story on book two without reading the first one, I wasn’t sure what to think of Leo, but even though he can be a bit, I’ll say bold, at times, he was definitely one of those characters you find yourself rooting for.
While it references events from book one, the story was laid out in a way that it isn’t entirely necessary to read the first one to know what was going. I wasn’t crazy about the narration, but it was okay.
I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
