Blood Pact (Blood Series Book 4) by Tanya Huff

Blood Pact, the fourth book in the Blood series, did not have an episode of Blood Ties (the TV show) based directly off of it. In fact, because of what happens in this book, I don't believe we can have any more books based off of the TV series.

Here is the blurb for this book:

Vicki Nelson has received the call that no daughter ever wants to receive—that her mother has died. Marjory Nelson’s coworkers at the Queen’s University Life Science Department told her that she suffered a heart attack, and that they’d be waiting for Vicki to arrive in Kingston to make the funeral arrangements. But what begins as a personal tragedy turns into the most terrifying case of Vicki’s career, when her mother’s body disappears mysteriously from the funeral home. Someone at the University is determined to learn the secret of life after death…and they’ve decided to make Vicki’s mother part of their horrifying experiments.

This book was better than previous books in this series. The love triangle gets a lot more attention, for one thing, but mostly I think the pacing seemed much better in this book.

I can't really talk about the final couple of chapters in this book without giving away spoilers. I will just say that I had not expected what happens, that what happens is BIG, and I look forward to seeing what comes next in Blood Debt.

Book Rating: 8 of 10

Lifetime still has the episodes up, if you want to watch the TV series, go here. Or, you can follow the links above to buy the DVD's. It is kind of a pain to watch online with the commercials, and having to click between the online "chapters", but it's free.
