This sequel to Blood Oranges does not disappoint! Quinn (don't ever call her Siobhan) is still the same in-your-face cantankerous werewolf/vampire who can't seem to untangle herself from Mean Mr. B's dirty work. She is developing a persona not unlike Sam Spade and other hard boiled detectives: super cynical and an...
