Ient Denver’s newest drug lord just put out a contract on her The sinister Athanate want her to come in for a friendly chat And it’s only TuesdayEnter Jennifer Kingslund rich gorgeous a tough businesswoman who’s known for getting what she wants in the boardroom and the bedroom Someone’s trying to sab Slight of Hand is the first of many many books aboutstop me if you ve heard this before a former military woman who s bitten by a vampire and now works as a PI in a world where vampires are known to exist but are viewed with great suspicion Geezwho knew this Urban Fantasy theme was being addressed by so many different authors with several building near empires with their book line In the case of Amber and the Bite Back series there are currently four books on audible with a preuel and Book Five already in the can In total the author projects doing 10 12 books for the seriesThere is no sex nor real romance but there are several bits of flirting throughout the first book Whether MC Amber turns the series into lesfic remains to be seen After all on Twitter author Mark Henwick describes himself his having been disualified as a lesbian on a technicality so perhaps nothing is certain about his characters Finally Jen glanced at the clock Oh God look at the time I promised myself I would have you in bed by nine at the latest She stood and looked down at me Are you okay Amber Ah Yes I think I just snorted some wine I gasped I had slightly misinterpreted her comment mid swallow In addition to Amber and her teasing new employer Jen we are introduced to a variety of other interesting characters the military folks who want to study control and perhaps imprison Amber local police her friend who is actively on the path to becoming vampire witches vampires from competing political houses and werewolves Jen herself has been infected by a vampire and appears to be helpless to stopping her own progressionAmber and the other characters interact with each other throughout the story which is essentially a mystery who is trying to kill whom and why than it is a vampire story The pace of the story and the author s creative details are fantastic and the narrator does an excellent job bringing Slight of Hand to life Apparently the narrator withdrew from the series just as Book Two was beginning production The author speaks well of her replacement as one would expect but since he s now worked with her on six other books I believe him when he says he likes her narrationBook One only teases with the vampiric link between blood and sex and I imagine that the next books in the series will address both topics as Amber continues her inexorable slide to becoming fully vampire not just infected Definitely recommended 4

Sleight of Hand

Librarian Note This a previously published edition of ASIN BRJXPM “Vampires are the flickering illusions of Hollywood They don’t exist We do We are Sleight of MOBI #180 the Athanate”For Amber Farrell post military life as a PI has its ups and downs She’s been hit by a truck She’s being sued by a cl Amber is a private investigator After discovering a drug and gun running operation in her client s business she calls in the cops and turns the screws on Denver s criminal underworld Unfortunately for her Denver PD have shut down the business while they investigate and her client is refusing to pay her With a serious cash flow problem when Jennifer Kingslund shows up claiming one of her staff has been kidnapped and someone is trying to ruin her she has little choice but to take on the job She uickly discovers the job is much bigger than thought Adding to her problem the vampire infection that has tainted her blood is taking over and if she isn t careful her government minders will throw her into a padded room where military scientists will control her every move Loved this book It s a bit of a cross between those great hard boiled detective novels of the 1930s and 1940s and modern Urban Fantasy by authors like Jennifer Estep and Faith Hunter Amber is a great heroine and this book is filled with secondary characters I can t help but like It took four or five books before Jennifer Estep s Elemental Assassin series won me over Not a problem with this one I m already hooked There is a novella which precedes this book called Raw Deal Well worth starting there to get some background on the charactersaddedI have to say Kimberly Henrie who narrates this book in the audio edition isn t really right for it Julia Motyka who narrates all the other books is much suited for the series

Otage her new resort and destroy her company and she wants Amber to find out whoThe answers lead Amber past Were and Adepts right back to the Athanate and a centuries old war that could threaten not just Denver but the nation that Amber swore to protect and serve And all sides want to claim her for their own My rating keeps changing from 35 to 4 stars For some reason I feel like the protagonists is bi Idk the whole Jenn relationship felt like it had some sexual undertones My reading material is pretty limited to female authors female protagonist it may be possible a male author writing a female protagonist makes friendship feel sexual Idk I think the fact she is saying she s straight but acting as if she s sexually attracted to Jenn is disturbing At the very least she seems curious open to exploring My confusion on this topic is endless Lol I also don t like the cliffhanger with Alex That was just thrown in the end with no resolution Oh the whole multiple personality disorder with her twin That was a mental issue Especially bc the twin was still born It s not like she died while they d aged developed any type of relationship So the whole missing her twin sister aka confidant doesn t work for me For those reasons I m undecided on the star rating Putting the sexual confusion aside I really enjoyed reading the story As far as the vamps I don t trust them however I do like David He seems genuine I believe I ll continue the series if for no other reason than to see what side of the fence she plays in If I m lucky she straddles the fence Lol

    I rarely do this but I am actually willing to compare this new author to my favorites The team of Ilona Andrews and their Kate Daniels series and Patricia Briggs and her Mercy Thompson novels as well as Faith Hunter's Jane Yellowrock are a hard act to follow Intense storylines fully developed realistic characters exceptional world building the list goes on and on And so far the author of Sleight of Hand fits right in there with

    I think I'm in love I officially declare I have a new heroine to root for As soon as I finished Sleight of Hand I wanted the second Pity I'll have to wait Pro A strong heroine with a military past that makes the ass kicking pretty believable Not that common Good world building No info dump that's uite good for a first book a series Plenty of interesting secondary characters Not all of them are fully rounded maybe but there are no cardboard

    This was an enjoyable read though rather generic Urban Fantasy in a lot of waysI liked the heroine Amber a lot She's got a great backstory with a lot of good inertia that let me find her both believable and sympathetic I liked that she has special ops training and that she has an on going relationship with the Army though

    My rating keeps changing from 35 to 4 stars For some reason I feel like the protagonists is bi Idk the whole Jenn relationship felt like it had some sexual undertones My reading material is pretty limited to female authors female protagonist it may be possible a male author writing a female protagonist makes friendship feel sexual Idk I think the fact she is saying she's straight but acting as if she's sexually attracted to Jen
