Review-Blood and Bite by Laken Cane


 Shiv Crew is back in book two of the Rune Alexander series. 

Rune and the crew--some of them a little healthier, some of them a little more battered--take on new monsters and unbelievable surprises in Blood and Bite.
While Rune is keeping her promise to Ellis and trying to get her mind fixed, the berserker goes away to take care of some business--mysterious business he doesn't share with Shiv Crew.
What he brings back with him knocks the wind out of Rune and makes her question everything she thought she knew about Strad Matheson.
But the worst is yet to come.
With a mad vampire master she must destroy, a child she must save, and unimaginable screams from a past she has to ignore, Rune has her hands full. But there is always something new and terrible waiting in River County--waiting, it seems, just for her.  Because just when she thinks she can't possibly handle one more terrible thing, she discovers a shocking truth about herself, her blood, and her bite

 I am officially addicted to this series! These stories are just so interesting, gut-wrenching, and wonderful, it is impossible not to fall in love with shiv crew! Just when I thought they could not possibly get any better, book two in the series blew my mind. If you try to guess what will happen next, you are wasting your time. Each time I thought I knew what was going to happen, I was completely wrong. I love the unpredictability of these books. I did find myself wondering what took me so long to find this amazing author.
As Rune is adjusting to her life as a known Other and getting treatment for her mental health, back home, shiv crew is changing as is the leadership in law enforcement. Plus, the berzerker has been gone. When he returns, Rune's world gets turned upside down. He came back with more than she could have expected. She had just started to accept that she felt strongly for him, and then he brings his wife and child into their world. Llodra, the master vampire of the town, has begun the decent into madness. And he is going to destroy Rune's world as he goes. He has decided to kill as many humans as shiv crew destroys vampires. And he wants to hurt her personally. When little Matthew is abducted, they are turning the town upside down to find him. But that's not the only thing going on, far from it. It looks like the Church of Slayers is getting bold and setting up shop a little too close to Lexi, Denim and Levi. But wait, there is more! Turns out, Rune's healing abilities and feeding comes with a very high price. One that might just get her killed in the long run. When Ellis gets taken, time is running out. Can Rune save everyone? Is she even supposed to? When even more things get thrown in the fire, Rune will face her biggest fears and have to dig deep to make it out of this one. With her crew being everything to her, she better make the right choices, or face losing everyone, maybe even herself. This read will have you gasping for breath as you go down this journey with the shiv crew. Hang on tight, it is a heck of a ride!
