Hello Hello! How are you?
I’m so excited to be bringing you yet again a blog tour organised by Dave from @The_WriteReads! I was actually lucky enough to be sent a copy of May Day and Killian’s Dead (the series’ short story) a few months ago by Josie, and I enjoyed both of these books so much, so when Dave said he was doing a tour for this book, I knew I wanted to take part and boost this book and author as much as I could! So thank you, Dave, for letting me take part in this tour, and thank you again to Josie for having sent me a free copy of this book to review.
Before I jump into the spotlight, I just wanted to say a little about this book. It’s set in the UK, we have a host of amazing characters, and guess what? They’re all vampires! But that’s not all of it because they are also kind of detectives and they solve loads of mysteries, isn’t that cool? When I read the blurb for this book and saw it was a fantasy mystery with vampires, I knew I needed to give it a go, and I’m so glad I did! If you would like to read my full review of May Day, you can find it here! I definitely recommend you go pick it up as I enjoyed it so much.
And now, time for the spotlight!
If the murderer you’re tracking is a vampire, then you want a vampire detective. Just maybe not this one. It’s not that Jack Valentine is bad at her job. The youngest member of Oxford’s Seekers has an impressive track record, but she also has an impressive grudge against the local baron, Killian Drake.
When a human turns up dead on May Morning, she’s determined to pin the murder on Drake. The problem is that none of the evidence points to him. Instead, it leads Jack into a web of conspiracy involving the most powerful people in the country, people to whom Jack has no access. But she knows someone who does.
To get to the truth, Jack will have to partner up with her worst enemy. As long as she can keep her cool, Drake will point her to the ringleaders, she’ll find the murderer and no one else will have to die. Body bags on standby.
May Day is the first book in Josie Jaffrey’s Seekers series, an urban fantasy series set in Oxford, England.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR – JOSIE JAFFREY
“I have always written stories, but it wasn’t until I started the first book in the Solis Invicti series in 2014 that I really became obsessed with writing. I love to read, particularly where the escapism of the story is enhanced with an element of fantasy or science fiction. For me, writing is simply an extension of that journey, but I get to decide what happens next (though it’s amazing how often the characters seem to decide for themselves what I’m going to write!). I love to hear from readers, so please do get in touch through my website or via Twitter.” – Josie Jaffrey
That’s all for now, I hope you enjoyed this post, don’t forget to check out my review of this book, and definitely give this book and author a go, you won’t regret it! See you soon, stay safe,
