IN BLOOD WE TRUST
Genre: Paranormal/Urban Fantasy, Urban Fantasy
The third and final title in the Bloodlands series is a major disappointment. The direction that the last book pointed readers (monsters reclaiming the stunted human world) is barely addressed and the focus instead is on disagreements between the “Reds” (blood-drinking creatures) and the “Civils” (non-blood drinking creatures). While this is much of the book’s focus, an abrupt turn then moves things in a new direction, following were-creature Mariah and her vampire lover Gabriel to their relationship’s conclusion. This is an unfortunate and convoluted finale to a series that started out so promising.
Monsters have taken over the human hub, but infighting and mistrust abound between the Reds and the Civils. Things come to a head when a group of young vampires attack and kill a Civil and no one knows who struck the first blow. With suspicion high, Mariah helps Gabriel run away.
