Do you enjoy crime detective novels? How about stories about vampires and werewolves? Imagine a vampire detective and a werewolf detective working together to solve crimes. Intrigued? Well, that’s what you’ll get with the first book in Markie Madden’s The Undead Unit series, Fang and Claw.
What I Liked
Lacey Anderson: She’s the vampire in the detective partnership, and she is one tough cookie. She battles serious trust issues since only she survived a massacre of her coven, a fact that has driven her to reclusiveness. However, she is one of the best detectives on the Dallas Police force and she demands respect from her coworkers.
Colton Scarber: He’s Lacey’s partner and a werewolf. He’s a huge family guy, and the scenes where he’s with his family are my favorites.
The mystery: This is a case of “who dunnit?” There are several twists and turns, and they kept me on the edge of my seat.
The supernatural beings: In this novel’s world, supernatural beings are simply another race in the United States. They interact like humans, with humans.
What I Didn’t Like
I couldn’t read this book at night. It is so well-written and entertaining that it literally invaded my dreams. I dreamed that situations happening to the characters were happening to me! I wanted to read it at night, but knew I better not if I desired peaceful sleep. It was frustrating because I didn’t want to put down the book!
If you are a fan of detective mysteries, vampire/werewolf lore, or you simply want a different, well-written work of literature, then I highly recommended Fang and Claw. You will not be disappointed.
