The sweet scent of blood by Suzanne McLeod (VO), Book 1

Synopsis : Genevieve Taylor is a sidhe – one of the noble fae – and she’s unusual even in a London where celebrity vampires, eccentric goblins and scheming lesser fae mix freely with humanity…

Genny is a rising star at, where she finds the “M” in magic – which can mean anything from mischief to malice to murder. The spellcrackers are run by the Witch Council, whose ancient tenets prohibit any contact with vampires. And that’s just fine with Genny, who wants as little to do with the bloodsuckers as possible.

But when a sinfully sexy vamp is accused of killing his lover, an old debt forces Genny to help prove his innocence, risking her job, her safety – and the exposure of her own dark secrets. Genny soon realizes that she and her client are both unwitting pawns in a centuries-old power struggle. And it’s not just her own neck at stake but the lives of all of London’s supernatural beings.

Review : After hearing great stuff about this book by an author, I was very curious to read it. And I can tell it was great !

Genevieve is the daughter of a sidhe and a vampire, which is a very weird and impossible fact, but here she is. She carefully keeps her secrets from others and she does whatever she can to not be in presence of a vampire.
She works in a witch company which gives her a protection against the vampires. She is hired to absorb, destroy some spells.
But, one day, the father of a vampire asks her to help him to prove his son’s innocence with an old debt. With no other choice, she has to face a big story where everyone is after her, despite of the fact she doesn’t even know why. And of course, every vampires are here !
Genevieve is a reserved person who tries to not get involve in a relationship but it’s not that easy. She finds herself with a lot of problems and with an unsettled situation. She has to trust people who have hidden motives to help her.
I’m very curious to learn more about Malik, this mysterious vampire who helps her but also wants something from her. I would like to know everything about the Genevieve’s story because finally, we don’t know a lot.
On the other side it was a little difficult to remember every characters, and I was sometimes a bit lost. But maybe, it is just me who don’t have enough memory.
