Today, I am very excited to announce the release of Taken (Blood Trails #3), Jennifer Blackstream’s third book in her exciting new urban fantasy series, Blood Trails.
After reading book 1 Deadline (read my review here) and book 2 Monster (read my review here ) – I couldn’t resist the opportunity to find out what happens next to our heroine, Shade Renard, as she continues to follow her dream of becoming a private investigator and help spread to the word about this fantastic new urban fantasy series.
You will be able to read my review here or on Amazon UK and Goodreads once I’ve finished writing it. 😉
Bye for now.
ABOUT THE BOOK
Taken (Blood Trials #3) by Jennifer Blackstream
A cold case puts Shade on the trail of three teenagers who disappeared from a homeless shelter the night before a charity art auction. The cops think they left willingly, but Shade knows some of the most frightening monsters from the Otherworld can be as seductive as they are dangerous.
Talented artists vanishing without a trace. Willing participants in their own disappearance.
Shade knows exactly what fate has befallen the teenagers. But what will she risk to get them back?

USA Today bestselling author Jennifer Blackstream is…odd. Putting aside the fact that she writes her own author bio in third person, she also sleeps with a stuffed My Little Pony that her grandmother bought her as a joke for her 23rd birthday, and she enjoys listening to Fraggle Rock soundtracks whether or not her children are in the car.
Jennifer understands that it is customary for authors to talk about how they started writing, and how they’ve been coming up with stories since they were children. But Jennifer is a rebel, so she’s not going to talk about that. Instead, she’s going to share a quote from Terry Pratchett that she feels best describes where authors get their inspiration:
“Little particles of inspiration sleet through the universe all the time travelling through the densest matter in the same way that a neutrino passes through a candyfloss haystack, and most of them miss. Even worse, most of the ones that hit the exact cerebral target hit the wrong one. For example, the weird dream about a lead doughnut on a mile-high gantry, which in the right mind would have been the catalyst for the invention of repressed-gravitational electricity generation (a cheap and inexhaustible and totally non-polluting form of power which the world in question had been seeking for centuries, and for the lack of which it was plunged into a terrible and pointless war) was in fact had by a small and bewildered duck.”
All of that is to say, that authors are what happens when a falling particle of inspiration strikes someone insane enough to think spending their life arguing with imaginary people about how their story should be written is a grand idea.
Jennifer doesn’t have spare time, but she makes it a point to spend at least one night a week with her sibling binge-watching whatever show they’re currently plowing through (currently Numbers on Netflix), and she ferociously guards quality time with her son and daughter. She cooks when she has the sanity for it—adding garlic to the recipe whether it calls for it or not—and tries very hard not to let her arachnophobia keep her out of her basement on laundry day.
Jennifer’s influences include Terry Pratchett (for wit), Laurell K. Hamilton (for sexual tension), Jim Butcher (for roguish flair), and Kim Harrison (for mythos). She is currently writing the series of her heart and her dreams, the series that has been percolating in her brain for the last decade…Blood Trails. An Urban Fantasy Mystery series that will combine the classic whodunit spirit with a contemporary fantasy setting. Expect mystery, magic, and mayhem, with characters that will make you laugh, cry, and probably stare at the screen with your jaw hanging down to the floor. Well, that’s how they affect Jennifer anyway…
