This week I will be highlighting Black Dog Blues by Rhys Ford -it was recently re-released by Dreamspinner Press on February 3rd.
I admit I love every single one of Rhys Ford’s books - from her contemporary series to the supernatural. This is a standalone book, but I hope that it expands into a series.
This is also somewhat unique in her books as it is primarily urban fantasy instead of primarily romance.
Kai Gracen learned all he could from the human Dempsey who won him in the poker game, but now works for the SoCalGov depot tracking down these monsters. It was a difficult life, but one Kai seemed uniquely suited to as he could understand the human side, and the monsters that he needed to neutralize. Kai also has to deal with the daily bigotry of humans. He is an elfin that identifies as human, and most humans hate the elfin race.
In a recent interview for the book Rhys Ford said “I wanted to write about the conflict of self versus social perception.”

If you want an urban fantasy book, that is light on romance and heavy on action, I highly recommend Black Dog Blues by Rhys Ford.
