[REVIEW] The Sweet Scent of Blood – Suzanne McLeod

Suzanne McLeod
The Sweet Scent of Blood (Spellcrackers.com, Book 1)
Hachette (UK: 9th April 2009; AU: January 2009)

Genny Taylor is both sidhe and vampire, and cracks spells for a living in England. But she can only crack spells or absorb them, and can’t actually cast any herself, a flaw in her magic. Though maybe all those bacon sandwiches are to blame…

Investigating the case of a girl supposedly murdered by her vampire boyfriend, Genny’s bloody side soon reveals itself. Not that this is much of a problem for her suitors, satyr Finn and vamp Malik.

London is a welcome change from the mostly American settings populating urban fantasy, 3V is an interesting concept, and Genny’s cat-like eyes are unique. But my overall feeling is meh. Admittedly, I read this whilst in a shoddy mood, but it had to be read sometime. If you can’t get it from the library, wait for a mass market release, when it will hopefully be more affordable. (I intend to continue the series this way.)
