Publisher Description

Gracie Boswell's got a charmed bullet, a brand new posse, and a pack of outlaw vampires to kill.

The tiny town of Penance has a big vampire problem—and charmslinger Gracie Boswell aims to be the solution. A whole nest of vampires makes for a mighty fine bounty, though, and Gracie is far from the only charmslinger angling for the job. When a charming local layabout and an old competitor elbow their way into Gracie's posse, she's forced to at least pretend to play nice...but trust is scarce in the west, and smart bounty hunters always sleep with one eye open.

But Gracie doesn't have much time to watch her fellow bounty hunters—Penance's vampire nest is bigger and more organized than anyone suspected, and there's at least one traitor in the town's midst. Soon, Gracie finds herself in the unenviable position of leaning on her posse...and at least one of them isn't what he claims to be.

USA Today best-selling author Liza Street continues to thrill with a brand new western gothic series of outlaw vampires, sinister fae, and good old-fashioned treachery. Pick up Blood Bounty for a wild ride through the dark and dangerous west!

Wild West with Vampires

Gracie
Carson
Boone

The first few sentences were so wildly different from what I normally read and so entertaining that I decided a wild west novel with vampires is on the A-list. The story revolves around one bounty, but when Gracie takes it, she has no idea that this would require a posse. The sherif won’t let her take the bounty without a group, and Boone and Carson immediately volunteer.

Naturally, Gracie is suspicious about her companions’ motivations, more than she is about the vampires. After her own father was turned, she has spent a lifetime killing and maintaining a life of introversion.

Boone is also a bounty hunter, but he slowly tries to demonstrate that kindness and social skills help, and she slowly warms up to his companionship. Carson describes himself as lazy but tags along and holds his own. Because, yes, there is fighting…in the town, in the hills.

The plot is not that deep, but there are clever tricks throughout. The magic system helps: any intelligent being can use charms to enhance their skills, heal, or obscure. While I don’t see any rhyme or reason to the magic charms, it does seem to have a system behind it. As a charmslinger, though, a person becomes instantly lower caste. I don’t get that.

I was entertained. It was a different kind of urban fantasy for me. Will I continue? Not really. The pacing was slower than I like, and I also prefer standalones.
