Blood Bank by Tanya Huff

Tanya Huff weaves an interesting world full of action, mystery, and a slight bit of adventure. Meet Vicki Nelson, Mike Celluci, and Henry Fitzroy. Vicki is a recently-turned vampire cop who has a streak of bad luck a mile long. Mike belongs to the same police force as Vicki. Henry is the illegitimate son of Henry the 8th and a writer of romances. Together, these three are a crime-fighting, evil-doer-catching unstoppable team. Follow the three as they solve crimes and eventually catch murderers.
Along with nine spine-numbing stories, Tanya also includes the screenplay of her television show based off of her novels. Near the end of the novel, Ms. Huff also includes a short passage about her writing of the screenplay and her feelings and thoughts during the writing process.

As this book is the sixth in a series, the characters and language during the beginning of the novel is slightly confusing. I like how Tanya includes a story from each of the three characters; it's refreshing to read about more than one person. The action scenes are a little short, but the level of mystery and the agonizing thought of danger make up for its loss. Her characters act and say things that make them come to life. Some parts in the book were a little slow, especially the beginning, but the book eventually picks up.

This book contains slight romance and action scenes that contain blood and gore.
