My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Please note that my review of this book is subjective to my likes and dislikes.
Blood Heavy: Ascension continues the story from Blood Heavy. Shortt continues the adventure with his over the top paranormals, making it an entertaining read.
The characters you came to love from the first book are still there; the main characters of Jerry and Goose are exaggerated even more in this story (which makes it fun).
Joe still plays a role as well as Claire, Cassandra, and the rest of the vamps from the first book.
There is a high body count in this story, including the killing off of some characters that I thought were key. Additionally, you are are introduced to a new bad ass character with intentions on Jerry.
The pace of the story is rapid, complete with the humor and sarcasm you will have come to expect after the first book. Plus, You finally find out who the red headed woman at the end of the first book is.
Jerry and Goose have become hard core paranormal hunters, the problem is that they have come to the attention of the FBI. Jerry’s “protector” is still there and killing potential enemies and remains a major concern for Sophinia and the rest of the vamps trying to keep Jerry alive.
We still don’t have a clear idea of why his blood is so important, but Shortt started giving us a glimpse of the reason.
If you like paranormal it is worth a read.
