this story, a weak point in the other volumes, was farconvincing it isn t a spoiler to say he was a pre dynastic Egyptian sorceror, sealed with spells into a sarcophagus which has been in the private collection of a aristocratic British family for the last couple of centuries but is now sold to the Museum in Toronto Before his arrival, the disturbance to his sarcophagus gives him increasing freedom to send forth his ka the Egyptian life force personality to influence the museum curator who has bought the sarcophagus for the museum in the correct belief that it is unsealed and therefore contains a mummy And before long, he is feeding on the life forces of modern day people and beginning to establish a power base, in the service of his god but also ultimately to try to gain sufficient power to become godlike himself.I enjoyed the Egyptology background and the idea that, in contrast to ancient Egypt where sorcery was believed in and the gods were real and most people were dedicated to a god from birth and had protections which kept them safe from the villain s machinations, the modern world has such a lack of religious belief that he is able to overpower and recruit without opposition.I also liked the fact that Henry played a much bigger role in this story than the predeceding one and that he and Mike, Vicki s other lover in their love triangle, have to start to work together and to develop some mutual respect Although it was never spelled out to him, since the events of the previous book which occurred a few months previously, Mike seems to have accepted the notion that Henry is a vampire Possibly though, Vicki has a bit too much baggage in this novel and going forward in the series not only is she suffering from the progressive eye disease which may render her blind and is the reason she had to leave the police force and is now a private investigator, it seems that her inability to commit to either man or any man is because her dad abandoned her and her mother when she was a child.One continuing oddity is the way Vicki seems quite happy to share Henry with Tony, the young man who grew up on the streets but now has a steady job etc thanks to Henry As Tony s former mentor who tried to look out for him, it is a bit strange that she thinks it OK for them both to have a sexual relationship with Henry entailed in the blood drinking for a vampire, if a regular relationship is in place as opposed to hunting strangers Henry isn t exactly exploiting Tony, but he is obviously a mature character at 450 years old whereas Tony is just around 17 The whole issue is dealt with very much as a casual side mention and Vicki seems to feel that open relationships are great all round not an attitude most people can handle in practice even if they subscribe to it in theory.The end of the story implies that there might at some point betrouble with the god who lay behind the mummy s predations, but I don t know if that was ever followed through in a later volume.As I enjoyed this onethan the two preceding volumes, it rates 4 stars Des Vampires, Des D Mons, Des Loups Garous, Passent Encore Mais Des Momies Se R Veillant Au XXIe Si Cle Pour Se

Brendan Frasier movie the Mummy , but I liked the movie too, so that s okay.It was a little grittier than the previous two books, which I always find disturbing spoiler ahead The prison scene,

than the previous two books, which I always find disturbing spoiler ahead The prison scene, especially, was disturbing I realize that prisons are supposed to be disturbing, but it seemed like a real departure from the series, and was a little jarring and unexpected In addition, we never really find out why the prisoners have it in for Vicki so much I understand that she s a former police officer, but there really wasn t enough back story to explain the violence.I recommend it if you re reading the series, but I also recommend that you skip over the whole womens prison scene It doesn t advance the story, and doesn t really add anything Otherwise, good luck This is third in Tanya Huff s Blood series that still has the three protagonists in a love triangle no less Vickie, ex detective now

Toronto Tanya Huff continues with the three, strong, main characters that have the deductive investigative abilities and the wise cracking repartee She also includes interesting sub plots surrounding Vickie s mom, Henry s hunting habits and Mike s police legal dilemmas As I read this novel, I found it charming how the characters interact so naturally, while undercurrents of sensual, sexual and suspenseful moments continually surround them I do recommend it if you like the paranormal, urban legend and fantasy genre in a contemporary setting Blood Lines is the third in a series that I read years ago and really enjoyed Recently I got the chance to pick them up again and am glad to find them as enjoyable as I did the first time around.Author Tanya Huff has created an inventive and fun

triangular dynamics make for a muchinteresting book that a simple duo would.In this novel, the Toronto museum Egyptology department is the focus and inexplicable crimes and mysterious deaths center around you guessed it A ancient mummy.Now, I will admit an embarrassing fact The last time I read these books I never twigged that each one was based around a different mythological concept, demons, werewolves, vampires This time, here at number three the light finally went on The first time I read this, I remember it was not my favourite of the series, but I was reading them out of sequence, this time around I found the mummy theme really engrossing The slow plot development worked for me really well, I felt that the characters were all progressing and events outside the main plot line helped develop the theme.Thoroughly enjoyed itNext So not as great as I thought it would have been Yes, there was an ancient mummy loose in the city Mike and Henry band together to fight it off Vicki

finds a girl who he might like and asks her out to dinner in the first few chapters but then she wasn t mentioned again till the end of the book where it was just him asking her about rituals what happened to them This book just didn t live to the last book It just didn t have the pace, suspense, or same feel that the other books prior had You can findreviews Mademoisellesnow Blog It s an entertaining read, but I didn t enjoy it as much as the first and even as the second novel in the series The characters don t seem to develop and the end feels rushed. If you enjoyed the first two books, this isof the same, and that s not a bad thing at all I find them fairly comfortable reads, though some of the themes may be fairly harrowing the effects of the curse on Henry, Tony s fear, the attempt to torture Vicky But it s also classic it s basically a mummy with a curse, and it s fun to watch the characters running around trying to cope with that.Of course, in terms of character development, the book also throws Vicky, Mike and Henry together If you enjoyed the first two books, this isof the same, and that s not a bad thing at all I find them fairly comfortable reads, though some of the themes may be fairly harrowing the effects of the curse on Henry, Tony s fear, the attempt to torture Vicky But it s also classic it s basically a mummy with a curse, and it s fun to watch the characters running around trying to cope with that.Of course, in terms of character development, the book also throws Vicky, Mike and Henry together to work with one another again And naturally, that doesn t go one hundred percent as any of them would hope Mike and Henry still have to learn to work together, because Vicky won t put up with their pissing contests And Henry s relatively civilised in general, but I still feel like if Mike Celluci wanted to have a dick measuring contest, Henry could be provoked And don t get me wrong, I like that byplay between them I like the ending a lot not just Vicky firmly telling Mike and Henry not to baby her, but also the larger plot though I don t know if it gets used later about the three of them knowing of the existence of a god who thrives on pain, who could worm his way into their minds and use them, someday Vicky s way of dealing with that fact is great.Originally posted here This is the first time that I have re read this after visiting Toronto It was very cool to read about the ROM and the CN Tower after visiting there Huff s UF stands out simply because of Vicki and her lack of angst.
