Blood Work

Rated 5.00/5 based on 5 reviews
Matt Hawkins kills monsters for a living. Slay and pay. Werewolves, trolls, the occasional ghoul that gets a bit too big for its grave; but basically, whatever nasty critter crosses his path. Mostly, he kills vampires. While he’d made something of a living out of it, he doesn't even need the promise of cash to take down a vampire. Sure, it’s a nice bonus, but vampires are his personal crusade. More

This is a great story. Not your typical vampire novel.

This book has been added to my favorites. The characters were well developed, the story was well written with enough detail so I could imagine what was going on and still not be bogged down with unnecessary length. I can't wait for more. I hope for some explanation into what Matt really is in the follow up and why he can do the things he is able to. LJ is the first author I have added on here as a favorite! Great job keep up the good work LJ.

Review by: Idea Twenty-eighth on April 26, 2014 :
The role Erin McRea served in progressing the narrative was well executed and extremely fun to read. Matthew Hawkins was written elegantly with a depth that leaves the reader relating to the conflict we all face in our daily lives (despite the supernatural setting). Mercy, however fell flat in comparison to Erin and Matthew. Matthew and Erin's supporting cast also had excellent dialogue, none we're one dimensional. Beautiful artistic debut. I will be eagerly awaiting her future works (you cannot give up!).

I discovered this novel by chance when, low on pennies to spend on reading material, I happened across this free book on Smashwords. And I'm so glad I did.
It's a substantial read, both in terms of length, plot line and characterisation. Written in both the first person and the third POV, which, incidentally, works rather well, the reader is able to engage with both the lead characters.
Set in Australia, which proves to be a welcome change from most of the urban fantasies/paranormal books which are USA based, there is plenty of action, and the story-line is strong and engrossing. The back story is complex and well-developed,adding richness to the plot, there is a hint of romance, and a seriously unusual take on vampires.
I was also pleased to see that there is a climax towards the end, which although is resolved, enough is left unsaid and undone to warrant another book in the series (which I believe may have already been written but not published yet).
This is a solid, well-written debut novel from Hayward and I hope to see more of her work in the future

Not really a read for a younger audience. But definitely an attention getter and keeper. Read this in one night, was a pretty good blood moon read.
