Blood of the Sixth by K.R. Rowe
In the quaint Southern town of Port Bella Rosa, something sinister lurks beneath the cobblestones. When hunger stirs a centuries-old evil, a demon awakens, releasing its hunters in search of prey. Jackals swarm from the mist, seeking out quarry, sating their master with offerings of human flesh.
Allie Kent catches a glimpse of the first victim: a corpse with its organs, muscle and bone all consumed, leaving nothing more than skin behind. While police work to solve the unexplained murder, more bodies are found mutilated. Finally convinced the killer isn’t human, Detective Phillip Chambers is desperate to shield Allie from harm.
But something haunts Allie: shadows spill through her darkened window; nightmares invade her sleep while visions confuse her waking thoughts. With Phillip her only protection, Allie struggles to keep her independence in check while treading a thin line between reality and insanity. But is the evil dwelling beneath the stones her only true threat—or will the demons in Allie’s head have the strength to destroy them both?
K. R. Rowe is a multi-genred author who spent her childhood in the scenic city of Chattanooga, TN and still resides there today. Her father was born and raised near Tellico Plains, in the heart of Tennessee’s tract of the Appalachian Mountains. With her mother’s South Carolina heritage, her southern roots run deep. From a very young age, her overpowering love of the mountains continues to draw her to them. When not tied to her desk, her free time with her family is often spent enjoying any activity that can take her far from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and into the peace of the mountains.
An ancient demon has awakened and is starting to kill humans. Allie Kent has her own demons to deal with but stumbles upon the first body. Detective Phillip Chambers is investigating the deaths but soon realizes that the killer is not human. Phillip is trying to protect Allie but she is going to have to go to battle herself to stop the demon.
This is a great story filled with lots of action and a great bad guy. Allie is kind of off from most people but that is what makes her special, I could help but cheer her on. I love how Phillip is trying to protect her. It’s such a change from the hard-nosed detective you usually read.
This is a quick read with lots of description. I easy fell into this story and didn’t want it to end. I will be adding K.R. Rowe to my watch list for her other books.
I received Blood of the Sixth from Sage’s Blog Tours free of charge. This does not influence my review in any way.
