Review Courtesy of Dark Faerie Talesuick Dirty Down and dirty first person narrative that follows a “madam” vampire and her troublesOpening Sentence I’m told that it’s an oddity that I still sleepThe ReviewIn a market flooded with vampire stories I was not expecting much from debut author Dennis Sharpe I have never been so happy to be wrong Blood Spirits the first book in The Coming Storm series is as gritty as it is captivating I am also pleasantly surprised at how well a man portrays a realistic woman’s point of view Very few can obtain such insight into the opposite sex I know that I have NO idea what guys are thinking just ask my husband Anything I found lacking or obtuse will most certainly be touched upon in the next two books That is part of the reason this book catches my attention we learn along with V and her companions in a first person perspectiveVeronica “V” Fischer is a madam in a brothel house in Middle America If you don’t know what a “madam” is then this book might be a little too risué for you Just remember I warned you She has employees a go to man and spirits that she relies on to take care of day to day affairs She is also a vampire Found by her sire Jules at a young age V has always used her “assets” to her advantage She is smart and runs her house like the business it is Now there is someone out there trying to tear down all that V has built up one brick at a time Rachel an eight year old ghost that V has grown attached to goes missing “Patrons” of her establishment are telling police that they are being blackmailed by her Someone keeps trying to blow up her brothel house Can’t she catch a break here The that happens the we see V lose her cool façade Anyone vampire or human can only take so much in so little time I do so appreciate a character that responses in a realistic way V is then forced to admit she is in over her head and calls on her sire for helpJules is an old vampire He is V’s “father figure” and has long ago left her to fend for herself Jules is truly like a dad in this novel I mean what adult do you know wants to admit to needing their parents to bail them out of trouble No one that’s who He is strong and invincible in V’s eyes So surely anything that’s going on here he can fix rightThe love interest here is an unknown vampire named Garrett He blows into to town just when things are getting out of control and saves V from some “unuiet” spirits that are attacking her But is his help as altruistic as he wants us to believe V is certain that whoever is trying to kill her must be one of her own kind a vampire So is this sexy new player on the field a good guy or a bad guy Can V truly resist him either wayFrank V’s right hand man is an ex cop He relies on his old contacts on the force to investigate things for V Frank stays with V not only because she is his boss but also his friend His ex partner David Lewis refuses to understand why he would leave the force and go work for someone they both used to think of as a “bad guy” There is a lot of sexual tension between the two that is never fully addressed I enjoy the by play though Dave helps Frank track whoever is causing problems for V and her girls even though he would rather see V behind bars instead The loyalty Dave shows toward Frank is commendable and the fact that he refuses to give up on his old partner is comforting I believe everyone should have someone looking out for their best interests whether you want them to or not Dave’s feelings are evident in everything he does Will these two work it out Will they get together or not Will the difficulties V is having be the final straw that breaks this long time friendship Or will it turn into the catalyst that changes their relationship foreverOne of my favorite characters to hate in this story is Paco the zombie Nasty looking inside and out The maggots hinted at below his skin are a perfect metaphor for the rot in his soul He is a magic user and holds sway over the spirits around him Being one of the less desirables of the little town of Pekin few choose to go to Paco for assistance Unfortunately V is left with little choice if she is going to find out what is going on in the spirit world How can she help those ghosts that mean so much to her without a guide Will he help her or use her toward his own advantage I mean what’s in it for him Will she ever get the smell of him out of her carV is a wonderful anti hero; full of vulnerability and cunning street smarts mixed in with naiveté I have grown to adore her and her lackadaisical attitude shining in at the oddest of moments A diamond in the ruff Blood Spirits exceeds many of my expectations from a self published work I will be looking forward to future Dennis Sharpe books Notable SceneI can see the shadows have fled but I’m not alone There he is standing in the center of the room outlined in red from the light of the emergency exit signs How did he get here so fast Why didn’t I sense his presence How did he even know I was in trouble Nothing is making any sense I stare trying to wrap my mind around what I’m seeing and then I gasp audibly drawing attention to myselfHis head snaps in my direction and he takes a defensive posture His head cocks slightly to the side and I know his face and the motion of what he’s doing I’ve been through it before he’s reading me“Jules” So small my voice is hardly than a sueak“Who”The Coming Storm Trilogy1 Blood Spirits2 Distant ThunderFTC Advisory The author provided me with a copy of Blood Spirits No goody bags sponsorships “material connections” or bribes were exchanged for my review I only get paid in hugs and kisses from my little boys

Small town life can be hard for a dead girlFor Veronica Fischer the night to night life of a bloodsucking madam in Middle America is tough enough before she adopts Rachel Gregory an eight year old ghost After her. Um did you read that synopsis A vampire madam ghosts and gasp my fav ZOMBIES Sounds super awesome rightRight from the get go I freaking LOVED Veronica She's sharp funny and has a totally killer attitude and she's a madam Is it crazy strange that I loved this little idiosyncrasy about her Maybe soI HAVE to say that I am absolutely astonished that a man wrote this book and I don't mean that in a bad way at all Sharpe made Veronica undeniably real I've read awesome books written by men featuring male protagonists and I've read amazing YA books by men featuring adolescent chicks but never have I read a book written by a man featuring such a well written adult womanThat being said there is a freakishly shocking and dare I say gross sex scene in chapter 9 and you guys know me I like fictional sex of any kind I'm not all that particular about it and I'm generally fairly difficult to catch off guard but whoa After the 'zombie sex' I was completely ready to recant my theory about his writing women so well because no woman would do that THEN I thought about it for awhile and realized this Sharpe guy is a freaking genius Because ONLY a woman would do that to get her child back Well playedA few words of caution Blood Spirits is pretty gory and graphic sometimes 45 Stars and lacking the additional5 only because I would've liked to see relationship building with Veronica and Garrett They have this totally intense relationship with nothing backing it so I was convinced he was a bad guy throughout the entire thing
