Rating: 5 Cups
Lucius “Luke” Dragos is a vampire on a mission. When he gets caught and imprisoned, his only hope is to protect the innocent and hide the truth.
Sara Constantine has just earned a promotion and is now working for Division 6 as an attorney. What is so unusual about this job is she will be trying all sorts of paranormal beings versus the very human monsters she usually tries.
When Sara finds out she will be trying Luke she must put aside her emotions and memories of their one night of heated passion. Finding out that she slept with a man who has murdered someone is hard for her to come to terms with. But it is even harder for her to find Luke did not have ulterior motives and she is determined to find the truth. What will happen when Sara and Luke find that their passion will not be denied, even as the clock ticks away toward a trial that could very well mean his life?
What a fantastic tale this was! I love how intertwined all the characters were; not only Sara and Luke but the others as well who play such an important role in this novel, as well as what I hope to be future roles as well. J.K. Beck takes the paranormal genre one step forward by introducing the law side of things, including the intricate details of how justice is served for creatures not of the human kind. When Blood Calls is the first in a trilogy and it will have you craving more. I can only hope I can get my hands on the remaining books in this outstanding series.
Caution: While this tale does not go into the graphic details, rape is mentioned within this novel.
