Alexandra Ivy's BORN IN BLOOD Tour & Review

 Inline image 1 

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.

AVAILABLE 12/31/14

Hello Alexandra Ivy! Welcome to my list of yes books! Finding new series that have a sense of family and connection can be hard. Honestly it’s not at all what I expected to find here. But lo and behold I did! I was reminded a bit of the BDB series, which is always a nice comparison in my opinion.

It’s a story of mortals and Sentinels. Sentinels are humans that were born with special abilities or powers. Freaks, to the more narrow minded. They live in a cloaked city called Valhalla, but from time to time both worlds must interact with each other, especially when crimes are committed. (namely murder)

It’s when police officer Duncan O’Conner and necromancer Callie Brown get together that people start to notice. Although they must work together, the prejudices are propionate.  The living style of the “non-humans”, the writing style and the changing of the story’s POV to the side characters point of view periodically is what has me making the BDB comparison.  I am intrigued and ready for more.

My only negative was the cover. Uh - that’s not Cassie. It looks more like a hoe side character that was described. It had me flipping to the cover and asking why while I was reading.

Giving Born In Blood a solid 4 STARS

Part Three
At the moment, his disconcerting silver gaze was locked on her pale face as he came to a halt directly in front of her.  Instantly Jayne could catch the scent of clean, male body and some delicious cologne that made her think of hot tropical nights and even hotter sex.
Now was not the time to indulge in her very X-rated fantasies of Anton Valik.
“Looking for me, sweetheart?” he murmured, his husky voice rubbing over her skin like a physical caress.  “I knew you couldn’t stay away.” 
A portion of her terror was replaced by embarrassment at the snorts of laughter from the watching soldiers.
Okay, she was in the wrong, but he didn’t have to make her sound like a crazed stalker.
“Actually, I was looking for the Justice League,” she mocked, waving a hand toward the gathered men.  “And I found them.  Well, except for Aqua Man.  I assume he’s in the lake.”
She swiftly regretted her taunting words as a prickle of heat filled the air.  Shit.  When would she learn to keep her big mouth shut?  It was the reason she’d recently been laid off from the law office.  Then again, she wasn’t going to tolerate sexual harassment, even if it did cost her a job.
A mysterious smile curved Anton’s lips as he lifted his hand.  There was a short, startled pause before the lethal warriors silently melted back into the night.
Jayne released her breath on a low hiss, deeply relieved she wasn’t about to be fed to the wolves.  Or in this case...the Sentinels. 
But her relief was cut short as Anton took another step forward, his sexual potency a gravitational force that threatened to suck her under.
No man should be so freaking gorgeous.
He reached to tuck a stray curl behind her ear.  “You didn’t really think you could sneak past our defenses, did you?”
