    Opening LineHe had been almost aware for some time Nothingness had shattered when they removed him from the chamber BLOOD LINES is the third offering from Tanya Huff s Blood Ties series As a fan of the TV show I was thrilled to discover these books which now have the added bonus of visual references for our 3 main characters and their ongoing love triangle I particularly enjoy romance writing, bisexual vampire Henry Fitzroy Who as the bastard son of King Henry VIII also comes complete w Opening LineHe had been almost aware for some time Nothingness had shattered when they removed him from the chamber BLOOD LINES is the third offering from Tanya Huff s Blood Ties series As a fan of the TV show I was thrilled to discover these books which now have the added bonus of visual references for our 3 main characters and their ongoing love triangle I particularly enjoy romance writing, bisexual vampire Henry Fitzroy Who as the bastard son of King Henry VIII also comes complete with flashbacks from his 450 year long existence and remains my favourite character Private investigator Vicki Nelson continues her struggle with degenerative eye disease while also battling the supernatural and a revolving door love life And blue collar Cop, Mike Celluci just tries to keep up with the events taking place in his ever broadening paranormal world OnceI was impressed by Huff s writing as she weaves together multiple POV s and here gives us a unique story and great antagonist with one regenerated Egyptian priest wondering around Toronto as a modern day mummy, absorbing Ka s souls and hypnotizing people in a quest for Canadian and eventually world domination.The Royal Ontario museum is thrilled to obtain a mummy the only issue being the sarcophagus they receive is empty, or is it Staff members are suddenly dropping dead as the newly awakened Anwar Tawfic begins to feed Absorbing life forces and growing stronger with each victim as he prepares for his new reign on earth Mike is sent to investigate the museum deaths and soon realizes that this is no normal case so he enlists ex partner Vicki s help Meanwhile Henry is being haunted by dreams of the sun which is not a good thing for a vampire to be dreaming about Fearing for his sanity and afraid he is being driven to suicide Henry also goes to Vicki for help Tawfik soon takes to the streets and discovers that the younger the victim the better and in a couple of very creepy scenes we witness Anwar recharging on children and even a baby Soon our evil Mummy has taken over the police department, turning Vicki and Mike into fugitives and becoming obsessed with obtaining Henry s immortal Ka.One of the creepiest parts of this book was witnessing Vicki s time locked up in a special needs prison abused, drugged, beaten and blind without her glasses I was surprised at the level of violence involved here I ve also noticed that all the books seem to stall out in the middle section and as much as I m enjoying this series I generally struggle to get through to the always exciting closing chapters Another unfortunate factor is that the love scenes remain fade to black I find this is a damn shame because with Henry and Tony s continued relationship and Vicki bouncing beds with both Henry and Mike sometimes in the same day I wanted details And lastly you gotta love the fact that this takes place in Canada How much fun is it hearing Yonge street, the Leafs and the CN tower mentioned in a paranormal Cheers

    If you enjoyed the first two books, this isof the same, and that s not a bad thing at all I find them fairly comfortable reads, though some of the themes may be fairly harrowing the effects of the curse on Henry, Tony s fear, the attempt to torture Vicky But it s also classic it s basically a mummy with a curse, and it s fun to watch the characters running around trying to cope with that.Of course, in terms of character development, the book also throws Vicky, Mike and Henry together If you enjoyed the first two books, this isof the same, and that s not a bad thing at all I find them fairly comfortable reads, though some of the themes may be fairly harrowing the effects of the curse on Henry, Tony s fear, the attempt to torture Vicky But it s also classic it s basically a mummy with a curse, and it s fun to watch the characters running around trying to cope with that.Of course, in terms of character development, the book also throws Vicky, Mike and Henry together to work with one another again And naturally, that doesn t go one hundred percent as any of them would hope Mike and Henry still have to learn to work together, because Vicky won t put up with their pissing contests And Henry s relatively civilised in general, but I still feel like if Mike Celluci wanted to have a dick measuring contest, Henry could be provoked And don t get me wrong, I like that byplay between them I like the ending a lot not just Vicky firmly telling Mike and Henry not to baby her, but also the larger plot though I don t know if it gets used later about the three of them knowing of the existence of a god who thrives on pain, who could worm his way into their minds and use them, someday Vicky s way of dealing with that fact is great.Originally posted here

    This is the first time that I have re read this after visiting Toronto It was very cool to read about the ROM and the CN Tower after visiting there Huff s UF stands out simply because of Vicki and her lack of angst.

    I liked this book Not as well as I liked the previous two books, but it was still pretty good The premise reminded me a little of the Brendan Frasier movie the Mummy , but I liked the movie too, so that s okay.It was a little grittier than the previous two books, which I always find disturbing spoiler ahead The prison scene, especially, was disturbing I realize that prisons are supposed to be disturbing, but it seemed like a real departure from the series, and was a little jarring and un I liked this book Not as well as I liked the previous two books, but it was still pretty good The premise reminded me a little of the Brendan Frasier movie the Mummy , but I liked the movie too, so that s okay.It was a little grittier than the previous two books, which I always find disturbing spoiler ahead The prison scene, especially, was disturbing I realize that prisons are supposed to be disturbing, but it seemed like a real departure from the series, and was a little jarring and unexpected In addition, we never really find out why the prisoners have it in for Vicki so much I understand that she s a former police officer, but there really wasn t enough back story to explain the violence.I recommend it if you re reading the series, but I also recommend that you skip over the whole womens prison scene It doesn t advance the story, and doesn t really add anything Otherwise, good luck

    This 3rd volume in the Vicki Nelson series was again a re read, but I found I enjoyed this onethan the first two, having found them a little disappointing this time around The villain in this story, a weak point in the other volumes, was farconvincing it isn t a spoiler to say he was a pre dynastic Egyptian sorceror, sealed with spells into a sarcophagus which has been in the private collection of a aristocratic British family for the last couple of centuries but is now sold to the This 3rd volume in the Vicki Nelson series was again a re read, but I found I enjoyed this onethan the first two, having found them a little disappointing this time around The villain in this story, a weak point in the other volumes, was farconvincing it isn t a spoiler to say he was a pre dynastic Egyptian sorceror, sealed with spells into a sarcophagus which has been in the private collection of a aristocratic British family for the last couple of centuries but is now sold to the Museum in Toronto Before his arrival, the disturbance to his sarcophagus gives him increasing freedom to send forth his ka the Egyptian life force personality to influence the museum curator who has bought the sarcophagus for the museum in the correct belief that it is unsealed and therefore contains a mummy And before long, he is feeding on the life forces of modern day people and beginning to establish a power base, in the service of his god but also ultimately to try to gain sufficient power to become godlike himself.I enjoyed the Egyptology background and the idea that, in contrast to ancient Egypt where sorcery was believed in and the gods were real and most people were dedicated to a god from birth and had protections which kept them safe from the villain s machinations, the modern world has such a lack of religious belief that he is able to overpower and recruit without opposition.I also liked the fact that Henry played a much bigger role in this story than the predeceding one and that he and Mike, Vicki s other lover in their love triangle, have to start to work together and to develop some mutual respect Although it was never spelled out to him, since the events of the previous book which occurred a few months previously, Mike seems to have accepted the notion that Henry is a vampire Possibly though, Vicki has a bit too much baggage in this novel and going forward in the series not only is she suffering from the progressive eye disease which may render her blind and is the reason she had to leave the police force and is now a private investigator, it seems that her inability to commit to either man or any man is because her dad abandoned her and her mother when she was a child.One continuing oddity is the way Vicki seems quite happy to share Henry with Tony, the young man who grew up on the streets but now has a steady job etc thanks to Henry As Tony s former mentor who tried to look out for him, it is a bit strange that she thinks it OK for them both to have a sexual relationship with Henry entailed in the blood drinking for a vampire, if a regular relationship is in place as opposed to hunting strangers Henry isn t exactly exploiting Tony, but he is obviously a mature character at 450 years old whereas Tony is just around 17 The whole issue is dealt with very much as a casual side mention and Vicki seems to feel that open relationships are great all round not an attitude most people can handle in practice even if they subscribe to it in theory.The end of the story implies that there might at some point betrouble with the god who lay behind the mummy s predations, but I don t know if that was ever followed through in a later volume.As I enjoyed this onethan the two preceding volumes, it rates 4 stars

    This is third in Tanya Huff s Blood series that still has the three protagonists in a love triangle no less Vickie, ex detective now private eye ironically with an eye disease Mike, presently a detective and formerly Vickie s partner and Henry, a 450 year old vampire It also has a Mummy who was is a wizard and megalomaniac As in the previous two books, our heroic trio have to outwit and overcome the evil said Mummy who has invaded Toronto Tanya Huff continues with the three, strong This is third in Tanya Huff s Blood series that still has the three protagonists in a love triangle no less Vickie, ex detective now private eye ironically with an eye disease Mike, presently a detective and formerly Vickie s partner and Henry, a 450 year old vampire It also has a Mummy who was is a wizard and megalomaniac As in the previous two books, our heroic trio have to outwit and overcome the evil said Mummy who has invaded Toronto Tanya Huff continues with the three, strong, main characters that have the deductive investigative abilities and the wise cracking repartee She also includes interesting sub plots surrounding Vickie s mom, Henry s hunting habits and Mike s police legal dilemmas As I read this novel, I found it charming how the characters interact so naturally, while undercurrents of sensual, sexual and suspenseful moments continually surround them I do recommend it if you like the paranormal, urban legend and fantasy genre in a contemporary setting

    It s an entertaining read, but I didn t enjoy it as much as the first and even as the second novel in the series The characters don t seem to develop and the end feels rushed.

About the Author: Tanya Huff

Born in Halifax, Nova Scotia Although I haven t actually lived down east since just before my fourth birthday, I still consider myself a Maritimer I think it s something to do with being born in sight of the ocean Or possibly with the fact that almost no one admits to being from Ontario Raised, for the most part, in Kingston, Ontario It was the late sixties, early to mid seventies Enough said for those of us who lived through it and those who didn t seem to be getting another chance to fall off platform shoesSpent three years in the Canadian Naval Reserve I was a cook They d just opened it up to women and I figured it would be the first trade that would send women to sea I was right Unfortunately it happened a year after I left No tattoosReceived a degree in RADIO AND TELEVISION ARTS BAA from Ryerson Polytechnical Institute The year I graduated was the year that the CBC laid off employees in Toronto alone We were competing for jobs with people who had up to five years experience The cat threw up on my degreeSpent eight years working at Bakka, North America s oldest surviving science fiction book store Change Of Hobbit in California was actually a very little bit older but unfortunately it was a casualty of the recession in During those eight years, while working full time, I wrote seven books the first seven, except for the original draft of CHILD , and nine short storiesIn , after living in downtown Toronto, a city of nearly three million, for thirteen years, I moved with two large cats, one small psychotic cat, and my partner out to a rented house in the middle of nowhere In the years since, we ve purchased the house, buried two of the original cats, replaced them with threefelines and, unintentionally, acquired a Chihuahua You re probably wondering how two reasonably intelligent adults can unintentionally acquire a Chihuahua Please don t askI love living in the country, writing full time, anything by Charles de Lint, Xena, Hercules, and email I dislike telephones, electric blankets, and bathroom renovationsI always expect catastrophe as a result, I m usually pleasantly surprised Huff lives with her wife, Fiona Patton.
