LISA'S REVIEW: Sanguinary (Margo Bond Collins)

Sanguinary, by Margo Bond Collins
A Night Shift Novel


October 8, 2014



fifty years left before vampires rule the world.


Dallas police detective Cami Davis joined the city's vampire unit, she planned

with the help of a disaffected vampire and an ex-cop addict, Cami is going

undercover, determined to solve a series of recent murders, discover a way to
overthrow the local Sanguinary government, and, in the process, help win the
war for the human race.

along with the rest of the world, pulled under a darkness she cannot oppose?

protection and death. And I wanted to dance to it, almost as much as I wanted
to escape it.

with a vampire for anything more than the most superficial of connections.

I could walk out at any time.


I wouldn't. He'd help us find and stop whoever was killing these women.

That's why I'll stay in this.
