Buy This Book:
Vicki Nelson, formerly of Toronto’s homicide unit and now a private detective, witnesses the first of many vicious attacks that are now plaguing the city of Toronto. As death follows unspeakable death, Vicki is forced to renew her tempestuous relationship with her former partner, Mike Celluci, to stop these forces of dark magic—along with another, unexpected ally…
Henry Fitzroy, the illegitimate son of King Henry VIII, has learned over the course of his long life how to blend with humans, how to deny the call for blood in his veins. Without him, Vicki and Mike would not survive the ancient force of chaos that has been unleashed upon the world—but in doing so, his identity may be exposed, and his life forfeit.
Okay, so I need to clarify a little bit something I discovered which is the fact that the original books and the tv tie in books are just a teensy bit different.
The changes aren't drastic but they are noticeable to those who have read the original prints. I didn't know there was a difference when I got my copy of Blood Price but once I discovered the tv series I was curious and found out about the different books.
Both I want to say after reading the different editions are great books both for their own reasons but if you prefer the tv series the tv tie ins will probably appeal to you more with the minor changes they included to follow more closely to what viewers saw in the show and those who didn't care for the show or watch it will probably favor the original book.
Blood Price original is much slower to gain momentum when it comes to plot and character relation between Vicki and Henry which is supposed to be a main focus since they mostly drive what's taking place in tv tie in but its not that way in the original.
It becomes more complex in the original but its more passionate as far as attraction in the tv tie in. For me personally I liked both versions and I thought they all had their own merits but if you want to be more focused on the plot I'd go with the original version but if you're more interested in the character development then I'd suggest the tv tie in.
I read Blood Price after receiving a recommendation from Chris' Fish Place.
Until next time book lovers...
