Most people don’t know Juliana became the mate of master vampire Thomas Kendrick before he abandoned her seven years ago. Most people don’t know the horrors she endured at the hands of the vampire he left in command.

Even as Juliana pursues the demon, it goes after all she holds dear—including Thomas, who is back to claim her for his own. But if she can’t reconcile her past and learn to trust herself again, she will lose him forever.

*5 fangs*

Intriguing urban fantasy. Juliana, half dark fae and half mage, is a secret person. None of her friends know a lot about her. They do not know she is United with a vampire who left her seven years ago. They also don’t know that his leaving almost killed her. They also don’t know how she keeps dying in the line of duty and never stays dead. Juliana is a Realm Walker, a very rare Altered that tracks other paranormal beings that are causing trouble among the human population and relocate them. Thomas returns in her life and Juliana isn’t sure how she feels about that. He pops up without any warning, just like how he left. Thomas is not happy that she is working for the Agency. But he can only push her so far or he will push her away forever. This feisty, independent woman has made it on her own for seven years and isn’t willing to open her arms wide for him as she’s uncertain why he left in the first place. Just when Thomas, her mate, returns someone decides to conjure demons. Demons are rarely seen because their power diminishes when they in our world. Juliana is the only one that has interacted with demons and her record isn’t great. One of these demons knows her name and seems to be after her. Higher level demons are the only ones capable of thought and speech and this worries Juliana. What does this demon want with her? Who has sent him after her? Since the demon is conflicted about killing her, he starts attacking those she holds dear. Juliana has her work cut out for her to overcome this before it’s too late, she has to push herself harder than she ever has before.

Death’s Daughter

Realm Walker Series

Book 2

Kathleen Collins

Genre: urban fantasy, paranormal romance

Publisher: Carina press

ISBN: 9781426898112

ASIN: B00GKBIR80

Word Count: 68,000

Book Description

Juliana Norris, Realm Walker with the Agency, is an Altered. A fact that she runs up against every time she’s forced to work with human police officers, and their species-ist commissioner, on cases they can’t solve themselves. Which happens more than they would like to admit

Her gift—the quality that makes her the best Realm Walker in the business, without boast—is the ability to read magical signatures. Whether the gift came from her father, the dark fae god of death, or the mage mother she can’t remember, is anyone’s guess. And when Altered children start going missing with only wild magical signatures as clues, her heritage is the last thing on her mind.

She can’t afford such distractions, and she definitely can’t afford to worry about the fact that her mate, master vampire Thomas Kendrick, hasn’t spoken to her since she saved him from a demon—maybe it’s because she had to stab him to do so. Because whoever is kidnapping these children must be very powerful to wield wild magic. Very powerful, and very dangerous indeed.

*5 fangs

You jump right into Juliana’s life off page one. She is still working for the Agency, much to Thomas’s dismay. He’s moved out of his mansion and into a hotel as a temporary residence. He could not live inside those walls where Juliana suffered so much when he left her. He truly thought that he was doing the right thing and letting her live a life without him hovering and had no idea she would be a target. He’s hoping that she will come back to him and they can look for a new home together. Even as rigid as she has been, he is a patient man and is waiting her brain out while she works her feelings outs. She finally comes to realize that his motives were not selfish like she had convinced herself for so many years.
Juliana’s suspension from the demon case is cut short as her presence was requested on a human case. Hybrid, half-human half-fae, children are being kidnapped. The police have no clue why these children are being targeted. Once the first bodies are found, Detective Taft calls her in on the scene for a first look. Juliana is glad, but she doesn’t understand why. Public opinion forces the police chief to form a joint task-force. During the first meeting, Juliana discovers that the chief has known there were more children involved and spread over several states, meaning that it’s an Agency case. The detective’s actions make sense to her now. He knew it would be hers. Juliana also realizes that Taft is a witch, still human, but able to use magic. At each scene, Juliana uses her gift of sight and can ‘see’ wild magic in play. Wild magic is dangerous and unpredictable and worries Juliana. Her heart breaks as children are involved and she begins to run herself ragged. Thomas wants her to ease up, but knows she can’t and he helps her in any other ways that he can. Juliana is trying so hard to connect the dots before more kids are taken by the Thief. Every step that she takes closer to the Thief, he throws several more road blocks in her way. Can she solve this before more children die? Or will this case be the death of her?

4.5 fangs

Short about how Michael was turned into a vampire. Michael Bishop ends up being Thomas’s second in command, the one that he trust with everything including Juliana. This glimpse allows you into Micheal’s soul and his roots. He was a timid man who was a bastard child that his father never had use for. His father uses his love for his mother to make Michael do things things that he doesn’t want to do. One of those things is feed a vampire the bishops have captured and make sure the creature eats. The creature ends up escaping and taking Michael with him. He turns Michael against his will and ends up being no better than his father, as far as forcing him to do things that he doesn’t want to do. On this path of death and destruction, he meets his salvation, Thomas, who sees potential in him and gives him a choice.
