Review of Urban Fantasy Romance Tainted Blood by Stacey Kennedy

Tainted Blood (The Dark Element Book One)

Title: Tainted Blood
Series: The Dark Element, Book One
Author: Stacey Kennedy

Official Synopsis:
Earth Witch, Sabi, has been gifted with the ability to see premonitions of the darkness that threatens human lives. Safe in the Otherworld, she adjusts to these new visions…which isn’t going so well. Luckily, she’s got the sexy Guardian, Ryker to help her work through these visions. He’s intent to show her how to distance herself from them and help her gain control of life. Not that it’s really helping. The visions are leaving her crippled and unable to help pinpoint the killer’s locations to stop the acts from happening.

If that’s not enough to deal with, she soon begins to see vampires on a killing rampage in San Francisco. Vampires are being born and left to fend for themselves, resulting in innocent lives being taken while they’re in the throes of blood lust. But as Sabi’s visions begin to kick up a notch, personal matters need to be put aside. And as the mystery begins to unravel, Sabi will begin to see that these visions are getting far more dangerous and that humans are not the only ones at risk―she is.

My Review
Tainted blood is filled with heat-boiling romance, heart-racing danger, and twists and turns that will leave you racing through the pages. We are transported back to the Otherworld with this series focusing on Sabi, a witch who has the ability to see premonitions, and Ryker, a Guardian with a playboy past and serious fighting skills who has his sights on Sabi. The two give us one of the most passionate and action-packed books that will leave you breathless and wanting more.

Sabi is having difficulty with her gift/curse of premonitions.The murders are always gruesome and she is always two steps behind them, unable to pinpoint enough information to stop the murder before it happens. Ryker is a Guardian known for his extraordinary fighting skills and his reputation as a playboy. When Sabi finds herself depressed after the gruesome visions and lack of action, Ryker finds that she is means more to him than the other females had, but is it love? When her premonitions foretell that a bunch of newly created vampires are being made, experimented on and left alone to kill innocents, they must put their feelings aside to try to catch the murderer. With each premonition they are one step closer to catching the killer, Sabi is one step closer to getting a handle on her visions, and they are one step closer to danger. Soon Sabi realizes that the visions aren't as distant as they seem and that she just mab be next victem in line.

This book is amazing, passionate, and un-put-downable. It is a must-read for every PNR and UF fan out there.
