BLOODSHIFTED by Cassie Alexander

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Edie Spence urban fantasy series is one of my faves. So I've been putting off reading the last book. Don't ask me why, but I do this all the time. O_o

Anyway. This week, I decided it was time to find out how her tale ends.

After almost dying on the cruise from hell, Edie finds herself tied to a vampire. She'd rather not be, but it was the only thing that would guarantee her survival. The only way to give her unborn baby a chance at life. Only problem is that she's now a daytimer. She's got Raven's blood in her, and while it makes her stronger, it also means she's hidden away in the catacombs beneath a nightclub in LA.

Edie is basically a slave, but to make the time go faster, she throws herself into the work of cleaning and serving and trying to stay out of trouble. But with a few Shadows tagging along, an ancient vampire invading her dreams, and the other daytimers to compete with, she has to keep her wits and be willing to do whatever it takes to survive. Even if it means she has to surrender to a darkness she never expected...

Wow. I knew this book would be good, but I didn't expect to be so captivated by every page that I didn't want to put it down. Oh, okay, I did expect that. LOL.

Edie has been through a LOT, but what she goes through in this book is heart-wrenching. In order to keep her baby safe, she's separated from the man she loves, her family and her friends. And although she finds herself sinking fast into darkness, she fights it all the way. That's one of the best things about Edie. That no matter what she has to do or how far she's pushed, she never forgets she's a nurse and her need to help others always wins.

I really enjoyed this last gruelling adventure, but I'm sad to see her series end. I would've loved to find out what happened to Anna, and to her latest ally. Plus it would've been awesome to meet her baby. But I had a great time reading this series and all five books will permanently have a place on my keeper shelf.
