My Rating for Deep Blues Goodbye-4.5 Stars and a recommended read
The world was stunned when they found out that vampires do exist especially since for Detective Travis Boudreaux, letting the world know-and your police captain-know you are a vampire, well let’s just say it wasn't all sunshine and roses. But now two years have passed and supernatural beings are the norm and the humans are on the side of civil rights for them until a killer decides that isn't acceptable. Now Travis has to partner up with Detective Sam Garrett, a man who hates all things supernatural, and work together to find a killer, one who kills vampires and humans alike. But for these two detectives, there are lessons to be learned in life and in death as they race against the clock to find a killer before he strikes again.
Deep Blues Goodbye is a story that draws you in, captures your imagination and doesn't let you go until the very last page is read. TA Webb & Laura (L. E.) Harner are a formidable writing duo and I was enthralled from the beginning as I tried to figure out plot twists and the ‘who done it’ surrounding the killer of vampires and humans. This story has its dark moments, humor and some major tension-sexual and otherwise-between the characters. This is a tough, gritty story-line and it’s about two characters who find themselves learning new lessons about life and death and that second chances are not always what they are made out to be. These two create a story that is enjoyable and quite intriguing. I loved the characters and found myself falling for Det. Travis Boudreaux in a big way. He just had something about him that called to me. The writing was tight, story flowed smoothly and the characters are very well-rounded.
There is a prequel of sorts by LE Harner called Altered States if you care to read that before this one but it doesn't have to be read in order to enjoy Deep Blues Goodbye. I do have to say this had the potential to be a full length novel and would have loved to have seen this as a longer story but overall this worked just as well as a novella too. The authors make no bones that their werewolves and vampires like to kill things and the vampires do not sparkle (thank the goddess lol). I can not wait to see what happens next for this series and am eager to see what these two authors create next.
Deep Blues Goodbye is a dark, gritty tale that leaves you gasping for more as the last page is read. I do caution you, the ending alone will leave you stunned breathless. These two wonderful authors weave a spell around you as you read this new chapter in the Altered States series and the reader is completely captivated from start to finish. I just hope we won't have to wait long for book two.
