A very interesting take on vampires, shifters and humans; T.A. Chase delivered an enigma of characters that left me with more questions than answers. Bulls and Blood is the first book in the new vampire-cowboys series, The Blood and Thorn Ranch. Six vampire brothers—by choice— the men run the ranch; one where rules are to be adhered to and if they’re not, the punishment is swift and deadly.
Wesley, the youngest Thorn is the most rules conscious and slightly introverted. Never truly mingling with the help—those he considers beneath him—he is the behind the scenes brother, yet the most deadly.
Mino is a human ranch hand and has had his eyes on Wesley for some time-which breaks rule number two.
Ms. Chase’s spin on the vampires was ingenious and refreshing. The brothers were holier than though creatures that looked at everyone—shifters included—as subpar. This attitude resonated throughout the story and Ms. Chase’s writing. Although the Thorn brothers took care of their own, the callousness in which they regarded others blurred the lines of my like and dislike for them. I never truly connected with the characters yet I felt Ms. Chase hit the mark in creating a new world.
Wesley was deadly and overbearing and Mino bold, for a human, especially in a world where I gathered humans are considered mere fodder.
If Ms. Chase’s idea was to keep us guessing and coming back for more, then sign this reader up. The author peeked my curiosity with many more unanswered questions and the need to know about each brother and this new spin on the vampire world.
Kudos to T.A. Chase for developing and delivering something totally different. An HEA with room to grow, Bulls and Blood ended abruptly with the knowledge I’ll be back for book number two.
