I would not want to be the person in charge of how to categorize A MATTER OF BLOOD as it could easily hold its own shelved anywhere in the mystery, urban fantasy or horror sections of your local book shop. In fact this book would likely end up on my list of books of the year in any of those categories. It’s that good.
Joseph D’Lacey is an author who has been on my radar for some time now. I was intrigued enough by his first novel, MEAT, to purchase a copy, but sadly it’s been a neglected member of the black hole that is my to-read pile ever since. After reading BLACK FEATHERS I’m most certainly going to rectify that.
