This was a very interesting story while I thought it was going somewhere, certainly dncan to the big twist halfway through. References to homosexuality, rape. An alcoholic with a horrible past, she becomes an overly promiscuous man-hater, never bringing a man home unless she is too drunk to remember anything the next day. When it starts to affect others, she has to think about things a bit more. Cross-genre appeal is a good thing, but the waters get a little murkier when you have the fortune of becoming popular.

This review was originally posted at Vampire Book Club. Not a completely awful book, but I couldn’t make myself care for the characters. And it worked there because Chess was never hurting anyone but herself with drug use. Jackie is six kinds of emotionally messed up and hard to like because of it, deadworkd then character development happens.

I’m too darn picky It’s a good beginning to a new urban fantasy series. Well, at least, someone did something to Nick as his family lay dying. So anyway, on to the actual book.

No, of course not. A misty rain swirled down into the darkness between the two brick buildings.

I also have to add in that there’s a pretty big twist towards the end of the book that I totally didn’t see coming. We use this revenue to keep the blog afloat. Before starting “Deadworld”, I was expecting the usual run of the mill paranormal romance, where the big brooding alpha male would end up saving and falling for the tough as nails female, who ends up as putty in his hands due to the usual plot devices that are thrown into the growing dedaworld of books in deaxworld genre.


Nick is the prime suspect in the case until it becomes apparent that he and his partner Shelby are the only ones strong enough to fight and defeat Cornelius Drake. He comes across more as a stern, caring dad. Where his family was killed by a vampire, Cornelius Drake. Jackie is supposed to be tough but I think she’s just self-destructive view spoiler [ she drinks a lot, which in and of itself doesn’t bother me but it’s the constant one night stands she has which culminates into her almost killing a man after her partner does.

The DA wants her head on a platter. You weren’t sure if they were good or not. We finally get to see how Cornelius became so powerful.

Early Review: Deadworld by J.N. Duncan

I gave it 4 stars based on originality, true grit and believable characters. If you would like a book reviewed on this site please request a review. Want to Read saving…. An old vampire has been playing games with Nick Anderson for well over years now. In all honesty, there was really no reason for me to buy this book, but since I had connected with the author through Twitter, I wanted to support him. The secondary cast fleshes out much better then our protagonists.

One of the main jj points of this story are these murders, 5 in total, happening every 36 years, and this is the 5th and final set put in play by one Cornelius Drake, a vampire who can apparently do more than the average vampire can.


Return to Book Page. Jackie and her partner Laurel wanted to come across as the next Rizzoli and Isles. However, this could be more than they can handle. Full Review on bookchickcity. The other characters I wasn’t sure what to think about dncan Nick and Shelby. This behavior has finally escalated to the point that her partner, Laurel, has had enough.

Deadworld was an okay read. All in all a nice noir fantasy debut series that shows promise.

J, Deadworld isn’t partially exciting and mostly unoriginal. Duncan takes the supernatural and mundane and twists them together to give us a unique prospective on vampires, ghosts, and the mortals who exist with them. Writing in the Dark.

The novel was a refreshingly different look at vampires and the world of spirits. Flawed and annoying at times, their emotional make ups are realistic in correspondence to the events of their past. Plot wise there were a lot of holes why could the vampires feel the pull of the dead? It was kind of a neat idea in a lot of ways, but it kept shooting itself in the foot.

Deadworld : J. N. Duncan :

The first is that Laurel, one of the two FBI agents is a psychic. Sorry, your blog cannot share posts by email.

Nick h the head of Special Investigations Inc. Deadworld is a debut urban fantasy that is steeped in police procedural. I like my heroines to be a little angsty but I don’t need full blown psychotic.
