Chosen By Blood- Virna DePaul (book 1)

Leader of an Otherborn clan, half-breed vampire Knox Devereaux would do anything to find a cure for the anti-vamp vaccine slowly starving his people into extinction. When the FBI contacts him about leading a team of hand-selected Others on a mission to reclaim the stolen antidote, Knox accepts. His new assignment places him in direct contact with Special Agent Felicia Locke, the beautiful human he’s craved since their very first meeting.

Five years after the Second Civil War ends, humans and Otherborn—humanlike creatures with superhuman DNA—still struggle for peace. To ensure the continued rights of both, the FBI forms a Para-Ops team with a unique set of skills.

This book starts off with FBI agent Mchone wanting to start up a special group called Para-Ops. This team will have human and otherborn. He has asked a Wraith, Hunt-were, Lucy-mage, Knox-dhampire, Felicia-human, and Caleb-human/medic. They have all agreed to do it for a price. Knox is doing it to get the antidote to help his vampire clan. The antidote will reverse the effects of the shot that the humans were given to keep the vampires from getting the nutrients from human blood to survive. Of course taking this mission puts him with Felicia who is his soul mate. Felicia has stayed away from Knox because she doesn't want to be his woman on side while he marries a vampire bride.The story is interesting and I like to see the characters interact. Will Knox throw away his love for Felicia for his duty and his clan? Or will he forget his duty and be with Felicia? My Rating 3-4    Sandy

  1. I just found this series and got the first book. It sounds really good. Thanks for sharing your review.

  2. Sandy, I had a bit of a problem connecting with the book and actually started a couple times, but after talking with Dawn, who recommended the series, I pushed through and ended up really enjoying this series. I'm already half way through book two!! Happy reading.
