In the third Generation V novel, Fortitude Scott proves that working with family can be deadly…
Former film student Fortitude Scott is finally gainfully employed. Unfortunately, said employment happens to be with a group of sociopathic vampires—his family. And as much as Fort is loath to get too deep into the family business, when his brother, Chivalry, is temporarily unable to run the territory, it’s up to Fort to keep things under control.
So when the leader of a powerful faction of shifters turns up murdered, Fort finds himself tracking down a killer while navigating dangerous rivalries, longtime grudges, and hidden agendas. Even with the help of his foxy kitsune sidekick, Suzume, he’ll need to pull out all the stops to hunt for the paranormal assassin.
But as he calls on fairies, witches, and ghouls for help, he discovers that the problem is much bigger than a single dead werebear. The supernatural community is preparing for a massive shift in power within the Scott family leadership—and Fort has landed right in the middle of the gathering storm.…
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
My first novel, , was published in 2013 from ROC Books, and is a work of urban fantasy. Its sequel, , was published January 7, 2014. The third book in the series is and will be published on November 4, 2014 — and is now available for pre-order!
I cut my baby bibliophile teeth on my older brother’s collection of Isaac Asimov and Frank Herbert, but it was a chance encounter with Emma Bull’s as a teenager that led to genre true love. Today, I’ll read everything from Mary Roach’s non-fiction to Brandon Sanderson’s epic fantasies, but I’ll still drop everything for vampires and werewolves in the big city.
I hold an advanced degree in the humanities, and I am an adjunct professor at several New England colleges. I am currently hard at work on the fourth Fortitude Scott book.

*I was provided a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review.
I have to admit, I jumped the first two books and got straight to book 3 here. Although I didn't read them, I was able to make it through Tainted Blood just fine. I did feel as though I missed a lot of the back story... well all of the backstory but I was able to read through and enjoy right where I was. I met Fort and learned about the business and LOVED the take on it.
Tainted Blood has pretty much everything you want and more in an "other" book. I really liked the take on elves and weres, I am totally going back and reading the first two now!
This is a fast paced story with a lot of detail and it just builds and builds.. I know there has to be a fourth!!
Highly recommend it!
