Blood Slaves by N.L. Hoffmann

Book Description

In the vampire world the Covert has been around for hundreds of years. They take girls off the streets and then sell them to vampires who are looking to “collect” women for unpleasant purposes. It is a nasty business, but vampires see humans as objects. Buying one from the Covert is like adding another car to your collection. It wasn’t uncommon to hear another girl go missing off the streets, but when girls from well-known families begin to disappear, the Supernatural Crime Division begins to take notice.

Blake Noble is assigned, by her superior, to investigate the disappearance of his niece and to take down the Covert. Blake, being the daughter of Lucifer and a famous vampire mother, uses her abilities to survive through the investigation. Between demon lessons from her father and falling for the Deputy Director, she tries to find a way to take down a several hundred year old business. Only she soon realizes people she trusted are involved.

Book Review

After reading this I couldn’t believe it was her first book! I couldn’t put it down… I needed to find out what was happening and this book kept me guessing throughout its pages. N.L. Hoffmann has an amazing talent that kept me enthralled and I can’t wait for her second book!

The book opens up with Blake Noble in the middle of a vision. She is trying to figure out who took Carter, her superior at the SDC’s, niece. He is also the man who raised her after her mother abandoned her and her father wasn’t anywhere around. During her vision she discovers that the Covert had taken his niece. The Covert were basically rogues who were organized by someone who chose to deal with them. The Covert would steal girls normally from the street so they wouldn’t be missed but lately they have been taking high society girls, girls that would cause a problem for the vampires were the Covert to become known to the humans around them.

Carter sends Blake to investigate Nick Black one of the Directors since evidence seems to point to him. For her to do that she has to become part of his Guard. Blake herself is a kick ass vampire/ demon hybrid, so she shouldn’t have a problem getting in right? When Blake attends a dinner where she is supposed to save Nick so she can impress him enough to be put on his guard everything goes to hell. First, when his second in command Eli demands to know why she is there because he isn’t buying her excuse and secondly while she is being politely interrogated on the dance floor by hot Eli rogues crash the party and attack Nick. Though this wasn’t the set up planned by Carter, Blake takes advantage of it and does her badass thing and takes care of business. Nick doesn’t offer her a job until Eli suggests it would be a good to have Lucifer’s daughter on their side.

Eli has quite a few secrets and has kept them for many years. When he meets Blake he immediately wants her. He works with Blake to find out who is framing Nick and investigating a dead body. Blake is trying to resist Eli while Eli does his best to make her give in.

N.L. Hoffmann has quite a few interesting characters in this story you just don’t want to miss them. Michael, Nick, his brother, and Lucifer, those are just a few I could name!  This book has so many twists and turns you just have to love it! I am looking forward to the next book in this series!!
