Review: Releasing the Demons

Releasing the Demons Releasing the Demons by L.D. Rose
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

One of the things I love most about blogging is being introduced to an author who is new to me and falling in love with their writing. L.D. Rose has accomplished the near impossible with this book because it has catapulted her to my list of favorite PNR reads with the first book!!

Five years ago, Blaze was tortured by a powerful vampire named Cyrus. He was held and drained in order for his own power to be absorbed. He's only now getting his life back on track for the last two years, but Cyrus has returned and he's out for Blaze's blood. Why? That's because Blaze and his brothers are genetically engineered human/vampire hybrids with extraordinary powers that Cyrus wants to harness for himself. Cool, right? Blaze sees in infrared and can manipulate fire, traits that Cyrus is hungry for. Valerie is an NYPD detective and in this dystopian NY, she and her fellow cops work together to eradicate the vampire threat. She has no idea that the hybrids even exist beyond rumors until Blaze asks for her help in defeating Cyrus and the threat to humanity once and for all.

I positively loved the world building in this one. It was easy to imagine the desolate and abandoned boroughs of NY by the way it was depicted. I could picture the humans scurrying for the safety of their homes before nightfall. I also loved watching Blaze and Val fall for each other. Their wants, needs, and fears were made to feel even more powerful because of the danger that loomed around every corner. The pall of death and depravity hung heavy throughout this story and gave it a tang of darkness that was almost tangible. Each character had such depth and clarity to them that I couldn't help but clamor for more and as much as I want to learn about each and every one of them, I'm finding it hard to let go of the main ones of this story, especially Blaze. Dude totally captured my attention from start to finish! He was a remarkable human for a man who was half leech.
