DPR: MIAMI, Episode 1 : Bloodlines ~ Review

Episode 1: Bloodlines 
by Allyson Gottlieb & Kassandra Kush
Publication Date: August 18, 2016

In glittering Miami, vampires run the nightclubs of South Beach, werewolves roam the streets of Little Havana, and every day, crooked paranormals break the law in ways that would be unsolvable or even undetectable by ordinary police. Solving these crimes falls on the shoulders of a secret branch of the criminal justice system known as the Department of Paranormal Regulation.


Episode 1: Erica Campbell comes from a long line of DPR investigators, and now that she’s finally joined their ranks, she’s eager to prove herself worthy of the expectations that surround her name. Quinn Walker just wants to keep her head down and escape the stigma of her past. Their partnership is tumultuous at best, but when a routine domestic violence incident turns into a web of blood, money, and lies, Quinn and Erica will have to put aside their differences in order to solve the case. And along the way, they might just learn how to get along after all.

I enjoyed getting to know this world & it's characters. Erica & Quinn couldn't be more different, but their partnership isn't up for negotiation. Their contempt for each other & the situation is quite evident, but when they are given no other choice they come through for each other. Dare I call them friends? 

I'm also excited to see what is to come of AJ & West. This is a series to keep an eye on!! It's getting GOOD quickly!

Meet Erica
She regretted it almost instantly though when Quinn smirked. “Is the great Erica Campbell actually asking for my help? Has hell frozen over?”

“No,” Erica snarled. “I just don’t think it’s smart to take on a nest of vampires alone. Wouldn’t you agree?”

Quinn looked like she had another snappy retort on the tip of her tongue, but then bit it back. “Okay, fine. I agree, there’s definitely enough proof of suspicious activity here to warrant checking the place out. Want to go tonight?”

Erica was stunned at how her partner gave in so quickly, and almost said yes without thinking. Then she thought of this morning’s wicked hangover. “How about tomorrow night?” she proposed feebly.

“Need a night off from the partying, huh?”

Quinn’s taunt wormed its way under her skin, and she sat down forcefully and spun around to face her computer. “Fine. We’ll go tonight. Meet me there at nine.

Meet Quinn
"Oh my god!” 
At Erica’s loud, horrified exclamation, Quinn couldn’t help but jump a little. She whirled, checking the parking lot for threats. “What? What happened?”
"I knew you would do this to me!” Erica said, pointing an accusing finger at Quinn. “I knew it!"
"Do what to you?” Quinn asked, mystified and annoyed. Couldn’t they just work the case without the petty drama, for once?
"This! Look at you! We’re going into a club, Quinn.”
"And?” Erica’s eyes seemed to bulge. “So, you don’t wear ratty jeans and three-dollar Wal-Mart T-shirts to a club!”
Pressing her lips together in a thin line, Quinn folded her arms over her chest and glared at Erica. Her partner didn’t seem to notice her displeasure, since she grabbed Quinn by the arm and yanked
her around to the trunk of the Mini Cooper. “I thought this might happen, so I came prepared. Sit down. Oh, your hair is damp. Good, I think I can work with that.”
"Erica, we have a case to—”
"Trust me, this is for the case,” Erica snapped. She yanked the bands out of Quinn’s braids and then reached for a large bag, which was overflowing with makeup. “Since you’re about to tip our hand by walking into a club in combat boots. Haven’t you ever heard of going undercover?”

“I believe my niece needs to eat something. She’s had a few trying days,” John told the guys. 

Understatement of the week, but effective. Both pulled out of her head as they got the hint that John was basically instructing them to leave Cassie alone. Again, she was going to have to thank him.

“Try weeks,” Cassie replied, grabbing for the syrup. Once her pancakes were covered, she reached for her milk first.

“Jared was just telling me that he and some of his friends decided they want to enroll in school in town,” Maria said, starting the conversation up again.

Cassie almost spit out the milk she was drinking. That wasn't a good plan for anyone. The wendigo and the skinwalkers didn’t get along for even a moment. Jared and Nate only tolerated each other because they had to. They were linked together through Cassie. If that wasn’t there, she was pretty sure they wouldn’t be sitting together at the same table.

Jared shrugged. “I was pulled from school eight years ago and want to give it another try. I think my grade level matches up with you. Maybe we’ll be in the same classes.”

Nate’s level of annoyance with Jared was slowly rising.

“Aren’t you a senior like me?” Nate asked.

Jared shrugged again. “I’ve missed a bit of schooling over the past few years. I figure it would be best to go back a grade and make sure I didn’t skip over anything important.”

That wasn’t the answer Nate was looking for. His eyes flashed the sparkly blue of his tiger animal form.

Glancing across the table at Maria, she mouthed the words ‘help me’ to her aunt. There was way too much testosterone in the room for Cassie to deal with. She planned to finish her food and march straight back to bed. She would stay there until the guys went away. It was her day off, and Cassie wanted peace and quiet.

The back door flung open, and Cassie was relieved to see Whitney standing there. Rising, Cassie ran over to hug her friend, but stopped in her tracks when she took a good look at Whitney. Her friend’s tear-streaked face was distraught.

“What’s wrong?” Cassie asked.

Whitney started to cry. Maria jumped up and helped Cassie usher Whitney to the chair she had just been sitting in. Cassie stood by her friend, worried. Something had to be majorly wrong. Whitney barely ever cried. Unless it had something to do with Sam, her little brother.

“What happened to Sam?” Cassie asked. 

She hadn’t thought they would allow someone that young to fight the night before, but she didn’t know how the clan worked. Whitney had explained that Sam had already changed twice into his totem. If you were old enough to marry at sixteen, maybe you were old enough to fight at twelve.

“They’re still missing,” Whitney sobbed.

“Who’s still missing?” Cassie asked. 

John and Maria had freed all the witches the night before. Everyone should have been home tucked in their own beds if they slept like Cassie, or already beginning their day like John and Maria.

“Everyone. My dad. My brother. Six of the witches are still missing. My mother never came home.” Whitney began to cry again.

‘We didn’t touch them the whole time we had them,’ Jared quickly told Cassie even though her thoughts hadn’t drifted there yet.

If the wendigo didn’t do anything, and John had freed them, then where did they end up? Cassie looked up at her uncle, and the spatula was nothing more than a ball of metal in his hand. She turned to Nate, who seemed as confused as Jared did. Why were there six witches missing?
