But I just rolled with it really!

Part of this amazing story is going along with Jace on this rollercoaster of a case so, like usual, I’m not going to summarize or spoil the story. So what more can Jace do as human from another dimension? Also, if you’re going to bring up something as serious as child trafficking, you really need to follow through.

Barants adding in aspects of the Shinto religion is a wonderful break from the usual Christian aspects to get in a lot of sci-fi stories. It’s not just vampire children, it’s vampire orphans who were cruelly abandoned by their parents in a world where vampire reproduction the pregnant kind, not the bite-to-infect kind is highly valued because not every pregnancy is successful and there’s a magical price on the parents.

Having a large focus of Back from the Undead be Shintoism, udead led to the inclusion of characters of colour, including the return of Tanaka.

Back from the Undead (The Bloodhound Files, #5) by D.D. Barant

How is she, a mere human, supposed to penetrate the dark heart of a child-trafficking ring of pire orphans—one that turns out to be part of a blood-farm operation, in the crime-ridden border city of Vancouver, British Columbia? Open Preview See a Problem?


But most of all I missed Jace’s ever loyal and funny golem Charlie, who pulled me through this series. I’m amazed that Mr. But a message from the man she was brought to this universe to apprehend has her traveling with her bodyguard, Golem Chalie Aleph and NSA’s resident shaman and WereBear Damon Eisfanger to Canada, which on this parallel Earth, is a nation hard to enter froom lethal to try and leave.

He is the villain the vampires and the lycanthropes fear like the bogeyman and Jack the Ripper and Hitler combined. uncead

I love my angels and uhdead, my vampires and werewolves, but it can get stale sometime. There was definitely something different in this book; something that differentiated it from the others in the series. In the course of this book she has a lot to deal with and a few loose ends from previous books are even tied up, but quite a few remain loose, with the addition of a cliffhanger ending.

I read an excerpt of the next book and boy was I confused. Although there was a little of him and some weird dreams, it just didn’t complete it.

I hated the part with all the gods, have a hard time believing Stroker’s change unddad heart. I am so happy that Charlie’s presence here is as strong as ever. The temporary partnership with Stoker is kind of nice, bacck I spend most of the times worrying that it’s just another trap.


Except Ahaseurus has captured Cassius in another dimension at the cliffhanger of an ending. What could possibly go wrong?

The dream sequences were detailed and felt like you were in the dream with Jace. Not with a gallon jug of tequila. Our heroes are attacked, kidnapped, assaulted, tricked, trapped, and have to deal with surly bureacrats.

Unfortunately, the characters of colour were all evil in some way with the exception of Tanaka. How about throwing an ex who betrayed Jace and left her to die in book 2?

I picked this one up again. In this world, the Canadian police are corrupt, Vancouver is a haven for drugs and gangs and so dangerous that the Americans have built a wall to keep Canadians bback.

Feels like the ants are crawling around inside me now, which is exactly as disturbing as it sounds.

Back from the Undead

The fact that Mr. And barran villain was not very scary. Our beloved Jace has finally connected sexually with David Cassius, and it rocks her world and his.
