The Shadow Keepers series has real promise if When Blood Calls gives any hints. I really enjoyed the organization that Sara got a promotion to work for. She is a really good at getting justice against the evils of the world but she has just an upgrade to fight evil that gives most mortals nightmares; vampires, werewolves, and other night creatures who play by different rules. Sara's first case is against the very sexy, very dangerous stranger she slept with just two nights ago, Lucius.
Lucius is a very misunderstood bad guy. He doesn't see the world in black and white but in shades of gray and I feel that is more realistic. Sara believes the system works but when the system fails and puts murders back on the street someone should take care of that oversite so it doesn't bother me. Lucius is like an advenging angel. He does the dirty work and doesn't care that people think he is the evil one instead of the other way around. Sara and Lucius is a good feisty pair.
Sara Constantine is one of the country’s most tenacious prosecuting attorneys—and she’s just secured a well-earned promotion. At first she’s thrilled. Then she finds out her new job involves prosecuting vampires and werewolves. And nothing prepares Sara for the shock she receives when she meets the first defendant she’ll be trying to put away: Lucius Dragos, the sexy stranger with whom she recently shared an explosive night of ecstasy.
When Lucius Dragos kisses the beautiful woman sitting next to him at the bar, he’s only hoping to blend into the crowd and avoid the perceptive gaze of the man he’s following…and planning to kill. But what starts as a simple kiss to secure his cover ignites into a fierce hunger that leads to an all-consuming passion. Charged with murder, Luke knows Sara will do whatever it takes to see him locked away—unless he can convince her that he’s not the monster she thinks he is. And that might mean making the greatest sacrifice a vampire can make.
