Blood Moon: A Rowan Gant Investigation by M. R. Sellars © 2008 WillowTree Press eBook $2.99 (U.S.)
I began reading the series several years ago and got hooked from the very first installment. And that is why I have a dislike for books series. If they are any good (and this series is better than good) they take what seems like forever for each new book to come out. I had the good fortune to find this series in 2005, when I had the pleasure of reading six books in very short order. After that I had to be satisfied with one excellently written book per year, and I am not a particularly patient individual.
Rowan Gant, along with his wife Felicity, is a practicing Witch in St. Louis. He is a computer consultant and she is a professional photographer. And he “feels” dead people, often at inconvenient time and very strongly. He has a friend, Ben Storm, who is a full-blooded Native American and happens to be a homicide detective on the Major Case squad of the police force. Can you spot a trend here?
Rowan has dealt with serial killers in the past, including at least one who wanted him dead, as well as one who wished the same for Felicity. He has dealt with ritualistic killers, witch hunters, and Vodun lwa. But a vampire? Even Rowan has trouble with this one.
There are, as you would expect from a well-written mystery, twists and turns, red herrings, good guys and bad guys (who sometimes are hard to tell apart), and solutions to mysteries. However, as you would expect from a well-written series, there are questions unanswered, and circumstances unresolved at the end of the book.
We learn more about one of Rowan’s major antagonists on the police force, get a glimpse into what is to come when he confronts his wife’s half-sister, and are left waiting to see where all of this is going.
If you enjoy mysteries; if you enjoy books with an occult theme by people who know what they are talking about; if you enjoy well-written books, you don’t want to miss this book, or any in the series.
