Synopsis: “Alex McKenna is the new Special Agent in Charge of the Chicago office of the Bureau of Paranormal Investigations—the division tasked with investigating crimes involving shades.
“Or vampires, as they’re more widely known.
“Children have been going missing, and agents are routinely being slaughtered. It’s up to McKenna, and some unlikely allies, to get to the bottom of the problem, and find the kids before it’s too late.”
Review: A fantastic beginning to what I hope is a new series. Nightshades introduces us to a world in which vampires exist among humans, a fact which has only fairly recently been revealed to the wary humans. The Bureau of Paranormal Investigations has been created to deal with vampire (or shade as they are called) crime. The story follows new agent Alex McKenna as he investigates a series of disappearances and murder. While rather short, it’s really a novella not a novel, Nightshades introduces readers to what has the possibility to be a deep and well thought out new world. My hope is that future novels in this series will be longer and give the characters more depth.
