Vampires Don't Drink Blue Blood, paranormal, supernatural, Lily Luchesi, Paranormal Detectives Series, book review
In 1988, Angelica Cross worked with a mortal detective to take down a werewolf pack who were feeding on children at a local school playground.

In 2008, the killings begin again, and Angelica is called in to work the case alongside her old partner's nephew, who likes Angelica as much as she likes garlic.
They need to put their animosity behind them, before more people are murdered.

Vampires Don't Drink Blue Blood is a really cool short novel that delves into Angelica's not-so-distant past. If you've followed the "Paranormal Detectives Series," then you know Angelica partnered with the Chicago PD before she met Danny, but the partnership wasn't discussed in great detail.

In this prequel to PDS, readers will discover that, beneath Angelica's snarky and cynical exterior, is a multi-faceted character with a heart. The particulars of the case she's helping CPD with really brought out her humanity, and it's interesting to see beneath her vengeful exterior to discover how she is motivated by grief and loss.

The plot itself is pretty straightforward and to the point, without any tangents to pull readers away from the main plot. I was relieved by this as I figured out who was behind the attacks before the end, so I wasn't seething with impatience while Angelica put the pieces together. The fact that I was able to solve the case early on didn't bother me because the story wasn't written as a mystery, it was written as a prequel to a paranormal action series.

Vampires Don't Drink Blue Blood by Lily Luchesi is a great introduction to Luchesi's writing style and one of the series' protagonists, Angelica.
