Synopsis

Bloodshot by Cherie Priest

Raylene Pendle (aka Cheshire Red) is a vampire and world-renowned thief. When the infuriatingly charming Ian Stott asks for help, Raylene doesn't bargain for a case that takes her from the wilds of Minneapolis to the mean streets of Atlanta. And with a psychotic scientist on her trail, a kick-ass drag queen on her side, and Men in Black everywhere, the case proves to be one hell of a ride.

Reviews

Praise for Bloodshot

Even if you've been experiencing some vampire fatigue lately, Cherie Priest's smart-mouth, sticky-fingered protagonist is still worth spending 350 pages with. Instead of trying to reinvent the vampire genre, Priest just gives it new life and potency...This book only needs one thing to be fantastic, and that's Raylene's voice. There's an entertainingly aggressive wackiness about her... She's witty and sharp and excellently lecherous. -- io9 Witty, fast-paced, and fabulous, Bloodshot is a refreshing addition to the urban fantasy genre. Priest's darkly hilarious tale will leave readers anxious for more adventures with the charmingly neurotic Raylene and her unlikely entourage. A vastly entertaining read! -- Jeaniene Frost, New York Times bestselling author of this Side of the Grave A 100-year-old vampire thief runs afoul of secret biological experimenters--first of an urban fantasy series from the versatile author of Boneshaker...Brutallyn
