Synopsis:

Jazz Dent has never been closer to catching his father.

Jazz has been shot and left to die in New York. His girlfriend, Connie, is in the clutches of Jazz's monstrous father, Billy--the world's most notorious serial killer. And his best friend, Howie, is bleeding to death on the floor of Jazz's new home.

Somehow, these three must rise above the horrors and find a way to come together in pursuit of Billy.

But then Jazz crosses a line he's never crossed before, and soon the entire country is wondering: "Like father, like son? Who is the true monster?"

From New York City to the small town of Lobo's Nod, the chase is on, and this time, Jazz is the hunted, not the hunter--while Billy Dent lurks in the shadows.

And beyond Billy? Something much, much worse. Prepare to meet...the Crow King.

From acclaimed author Barry Lyga comes the shocking conclusion to the bestselling I Hunt Killer trilogy.

I don’t remember exactly when I started the Jasper Dent series, but it is definitely one of my favorites.The main character is an unlikely mix between hero and villain that I have never encountered before. Jasper wants to be a hero  in order to prove that he is nothing like is psycho of a father so he does heroic things. But in the not too deep recesses of his mind, Jasper also wants to do some very bad things that he learned from dear old dad.

 

It is his creepy inner battle between good and evil that has made him one of my favorite characters. I also love his hemophiliac best fried Howie, and is sassy black girlfriend Connie. (I mention the fact that she is black because–well because I’m black and I don’t reads about a lot of characters who share my skin tone so I felt it deserved a mention. lol)

 

And while the characters are what keep me coming back to this series, the Mystery and Thrills that took place in the first two books, insured that I have to read the third. Unfortunately, Blood of my Blood is the finally book in this trilogy. I hate that Jasper’s story is coming to an end, but I have to respect the author for not dragging the story out over the course of ten or twenty books. Honestly, he could have kept it going for at least five books before I became bored.

I plan on getting this one next month, and the synopsis makes it seem like I will be getting one heck of an ending to this series. Keep an eye out for my review! I would also love to hear about some of the books on your wishlist so hit me up in  the comment section below! 🙂

 

Until next time…
