Week 51 Reviews: Born in Blood, Blood Assassin

From Goodreads:
In a stunning new series, Alexandra Ivy lures readers into the dark, seductive world of the Sentinels--humans outcast by their hidden abilities, treading the line between life and death, good and evil, pleasure and pain. . .

In The Heart Of Darkness

Sergeant Duncan O'Conner has seen it all before. Beautiful erotic dancer, murdered at home, no suspect, no motive. But there's one clue: she's missing her heart. It's enough to make the hard-bitten Kansas City cop enlist the help of a necro--one of the dead-channelling freaks who live in the domed city of nearby Valhalla. It's a long shot, but desperate crimes call for desparate measures. 

Lies The Kiss Of Death

Unlike the other "high-bloods" in Valhalla, Callie Brown considers her abilities a gift, not a curse. But when she reads the dancer's final thoughts, she senses a powerful presence blocking her vision. This is no ordinary homicide. This is the work of a legendary necromancer who controls souls. A ravenous force that will put Callie's skills to the test, O'Conner's career at risk, and both their hearts on the line. . .literally. 

From Goodreads:
They are the outcasts of humanity. Blessed with power. Cursed by fate. Driven by passion. The Sentinels have returned. . .

Out Of The Shadows

At six-foot-three and two-hundred-fifty pounds, Fane is a natural born guardian. A flawless mix of muscled perfection and steely precision, he has devoted years of his life to protecting a beautiful necromancer. But after she found love in the arms of another, Fane has been a warrior adrift. He swears allegiance only to the Sentinels. And no woman will ever rule his heart again. . .

Into The Fire

Not only a powerful psychic, Serra is that rare telepath who can connect to minds through objects. When the daughter of a high-blood businessman is kidnapped, Serra agrees to help. But when she stumbles onto a conspiracy involving secrets sects and ancient relics, her life is in mortal danger--and Fane is her only hope. Is the warrior willing to risk his body, his soul, and his heart, for Serra? Or will one last betrayal destroy them both?

My Review:
I loved reading these books! We did have the short story as an introduction to this series and world, but these books really let us dive into it! And wow, what the pool of characters, plots and romance was in these books! So great!

Born in Blood was fantastic! It also had scenes that set up for Blood Assassin, which was really great! And it had the mystery of who the bad guy was, and what they were doing, and yeah, it was just so intriguing to read!

Romance was pretty heavy in these books. Not just the physical side, which was strong, but also the emotional side, and the obstacles both within and without that they have to face to get together! And yeah, these couples chemistries were off the charts! Wonderful to read!

Blood Assassin's mystery was really deep and far reaching! So epic and amazing! What with their personal issues, they had a lot to face, overall! And yeah, the action was just fantastic! I really can't wait to read more of this series!

Yeah, this series is off to a really fantastic start, and I loved reading it!
