Welcome back to the May Indie BLT Spotlight.
This week is a short post, introducing you to Copen’s books and spotlighting my reviews of her work. Next week you’ll get to see her favorite review!
“There was a dead werewolf in the twenty-four hour laundromat just down the street from my house.”
Guilty by Association has, by far the best opening line I’ve ever read anywhere. It hooked me because I needed to know why there was a dead werewolf in the laundromat. Did he drown in the washer trying to clean his fur? Did he shift and overheat? We all know how miserable the laundromat is, and in TX!
Guilty by Association is the first in the Judah Black series. Agent Judah Black works for BSI, the Bureau of Supernatural Investigation, but she’s no ordinary agent. She’s gritty, tough and incredibly independent. So independent in fact that BSI has relegated her to Paint Rock, an uninteresting, two bit paranormal reservation where society’s undesirables; werewolves, vampires and their like, have been relegated to live. My full review for Guilty by Association can be found here.
In the second book, Blood Debt, Agent Judah Black, a gritty, and tough BSI agent, is back. This time she’s leading a murder investigation that might just bring her career and maybe even her life, to an end. Someday’s she’s not even sure who she works for anymore. Such is the life of Judah Black who must simultaneously protect her son, her community of paranormals and humans, herself and her job. My full review for Blood Debt can be found here.
Chasing Ghosts is the third book in Copen’s Judah Black series. Judah Black is a tough as nails federal agent who’s been relegated to the Paint Rock reservation by the Bureau of Supernatural Investigations. She’s between a rock and a hard place as she works to help save a child that shouldn’t even be alive. As she works to find answers for questions she never even knew existed she is forced to decide whose side she’s on and if it’s the right one. My full review for Chasing Ghosts can be found here.
Finally, there is her Fairchild Chronicles, Kiss of Vengeance. It’s set in the same paranormal world as Copen’s Judah Black novels, which are also worth your time to read. The story takes place in Boston on the other side of the law from where Judah Black operates. Dallon O’Connor is a mobster who wants to find out who killed his wife and daughter and take vengeance on them. What he finds in his quest is so much deeper than even he suspected it could be. It takes him on the journey of a lifetime that will forever change his destiny and the destiny of those around him. If you haven’t read one of her novels this is a great one to start with. And you’ll be back for more. I promise!
