Synopsis

BAD TO THE BONE
 
Vampire thief Raylene Pendle doesn’t need more complications in her life. Her Seattle home is already overrun by a band of misfits, including Ian Stott, a blind vampire, and Adrian deJesus, an ex-Navy SEAL/drag queen. But Raylene still can’t resist an old pal’s request: seek out and steal a bizarre set of artifacts. Also on the hunt is a brilliant but certifiably crazy sorceress determined to stomp anyone who gets in her way. But Raylene’s biggest problem is that the death of Ian’s vaunted patriarch appears to have made him the next target of some blood-sucking sociopaths.  Now Raylene must snatch up the potent relics, solve a murder, and keep Ian safe—all while fending off a psychotic sorceress. But at least she won’t be alone. A girl could do a lot worse for a partner than an ass-kicking drag queen—right?


From the Trade Paperback edition.

The Ranting Dragon

Written in the first person, Hellbent reads like many other urban fantasy novels—except in a few scenarios where Raylene will mention something along the lines of “if he was reading this over my shoulder, he would disagree.” If this was a deliberate choice of Priest’s, then that’s that.

Grave Tells

Combined with the unusual writing style, the initially slow, meandering pace might have been enough for me to stop reading if I weren’t reviewing it.
