The PPD keeps growing by leaps and bounds. This entry we meet Wren a thief with a code of who can be stolen from and who can't. Better watch out if you happen to be a rich jerk who takes advantage of their employees because Wren will be happy to liberate your prized jewels from your collection. Too bad that very code is what gets her caught by the New Orleans PPD chief. The Chief offers her a way out and we are off to the races as Wren has a bumpy transition from thief to partial law enforcement. Throw in a Greedy Vampire out of her past, running a casino that is supposed to be for Supers only and the chief has the perfect first task for his private thief to not only test her ability but also her allegiance. Too bad things blow up in a big way pretty quick. This is a great start to this branch of the PPD. It sets up many stories to come. The only thing against it is that I wish it had been longer. Definitely worth reading as are all of the PPD books
First book in a new Paranormal Police Department series. Wren Cooper is a Shadow walker, among other things. A thief who steals from the stupid privileged people, Karma against bragging. With a crow familiar, who talks to her, it makes for amusing banter. As a look out, the Crow is useless, getting Wren caught by the P.P.D. Who instead of arresting her, recruit her to work for them. A bit more tame then the usually P.P.D. books, it still provides enough action to satisfy the loyal readers. I am looking forward to reading more about Wren and her adventures in New Orleans.
I’ve read many books in this universe and quite enjoyed every single one. They were fun, well-written, entertaining, and great plots, and this entry is just as good. I don’t know why exactly, but this new series in the universe has been my favorite so far. Wren is an interesting character, and I found her fellow sidekicks (accomplices?) just as enjoyable, especially Becky and her Dimensional Box. I relished every single second, and I can’t wait to read more adventure with these characters. I highly recommend this action-packed adventure!
Enjoyable story in a new part of the PPD universe. How can you go wrong with a tale that references Buffy the Vampire Slayer! Wren is a likeable character whose heart is a little tarnished. Her sidekick, Rico, is well developed and entertaining. This is the first in a series but those you familiar with the PPD world will recognize some of the other players. Another awesome addition to the world that lives in John P. Logsdon’s mind.
This is the latest entry into the PPD world and well worth the read. Wren is a white witch who can hide in shadows, but her free and wild lifestyle is soon cut short by Lambert the new head of the PPD in New Orleans, who been chasing her for years. Throw in some eight-foot vampires, and thieves guild of a sort and you have a great story, cannot wait for the next book in the series.
Another great adventure in John Logsdon Urban Fantasy world. Completely new characters, although characters from other books make appearances, and all the rules of the world stay in place. This one has believable characters & lots of action in a well thought out adventure. Biggest problem: it ended way too soon, and right in the middle of the action. I want more SOON
John Logsdon and Lorelei Logsdon have created a fresh, exciting, and magical addition to the Paranormal Police Department series. Wren is not your typical heroine. She overcomes obstacles with strength and unusual magic and has a snarky familiar by her side. Venom Scourge caught and held my attention through to the end. I cannot wait to dive into another adventure featuring Wren and the New Orleans PPD.
I really liked this introduction to Wren Cooper and the New Orleans PPD. She is an unusual character and a fun way to expand the PPD series. The story was interesting and I wanted to read more. I liked her supporting cast very much and I am quite looking forward to the next book in the series.
The blackbird familiar is a stitch. Wren is spunky and capable. The remainder of the supporting cast is engaging and the world building is good. You get to the end and they won a battle but they definitely did not win the war. Everything was pretty up in the air. I have a lot of questions which future books will probably answer.
This husband and wife writing duo is a forced to be reckoned with. Their heroine Wren is the opposite of every other PPD officer. She is a criminal first and a officer second (or third). With the help of her trusty familier and her computer wiz friend she takes on a family friend out for power. Or is he?
