What is it about?

(Blurb from GoodReads)

He saw her. He wanted her. And he paid for her.

Vampires aren’t real. That’s what Tela has always believed. Always known. But everything changes when the violent blood drinkers take over her home of Seattle and cut off the city from any outside help. Without any food or supplies she has only one option: Cooperate with the new regime and offer her blood in exchange for a comfortable life for her and her sister.

John came to Seattle for an escape. For freedom. For the possibility of a future. Policing the humans should be easy. They’re smaller, weaker and, well, prey. But when he Tela is assigned to him, things are different. He isn’t satiated by the taste of her blood. He hungers for so much more. More than she can give him and more than she can ever give him. Not while she’s been bought and paid for by him.

Thoughts on Blood Price

This book takes the common myths and fables about Vampires and turns it in its head. They are actually aliens and a group of them have invaded Earth, holding the city of Seattle hostage behind a magically created wall. But what if the humans left behind?


  • Inventive.
  • FMC is realistic. This woman is NOT a hero, nor dies she want to be. She’s truly a victim of circumstance, doing the best she can.
  • Lore shake up. Few things new can come out if the vampire myths, but this does it.


  • Little too fast.
  • Need a bit more at the end, the conclusion is abrupt without answers or culmination, and this is a meta series with individual stories.
