    When a human is murdered in the otherworldly city of Necropolis, vampire Caine Valorian and his Otherworld Crime Unit (which also includes a lycan and a witch) are on the case. Joining them from San Antonio is human crime scene investigator Eve Grant who is sent to Necropolis to help the investigation. While working together, a forbidden attraction develops between Caine and Eve.The premise of the book sounded interesting, but this book didn't work for me at all mainly due to the heroine. Eve was so naïve and totally ill-prepared for the job and the otherworldly city she was working in. She didn't seem to get that Necropolis had a different set of rules and that she needed to exercise caution since she was a human. She was a hindrance to the team because she constantly needed to be looked after, was always getting herself into trouble because she didn't use common sense, and then she always ended up in tears. Eve seemed more like a child that needed to be coddled instead of a grown-up woman. I also found it ridiculous how at the drop of a hat she wanted Caine to turn her into a vampire and how she wanted to stay with him in Necropolis without sparing any time to think about the consequences that go with it.

    Think CSI with vampires, werewolves, etc.The whole giving the Otherworlders their own [closely guarded] city smacks of apartheid but get past that and the story is a good one. It’s a fairly fast read.I loved the characters, especially our hero, Valorian, who spends a lot of willpower trying to resist his attraction to Eve – after all, she’s new, she’s his subordinate, and she’s human. All these put her firmly on the ‘Do Not Touch’ list. Of course, we all know how well that’s going to work…The plot has the same scientific nitty-gritty feel as the CSI shows, and the same blurring of the details so the non-science-oriented readers don’t fall asleep in their chairs. The crime is grim, the possible repercussions are dire for all concerned, especially the paranormal community, and the need for answers is urgent.

    I loved this book! It shows the United States living in a different way with the supernaturals known as the others living in their own cities with their own rules. Caine Valorian who is chief of Otherworld Crime Unit and the rest of the team are working to solve the ritualistic murders before human become aware of them. Eve is the newest recruit to the team and human. The tension and chemistry between Caine and Eve is electrical. I really devoured this book and have read it several times!

    This is definitely the best book I've read from this author thus far - I look forward to more of this kind of work. Definitely recommended. Great storyline

    I am loving this new series. This is the perfect mix of crime drama, paranormal and romance. This starts with the team working a homicide of a human girl in Necropolis. The team consists of vampires, witches and lycans. However, when they learn they have to work with a human lab tech, it is not a happy place. Caine Valorin is the vampire team leader and Eve Grant is the human lab tech. Working together is a new experience for them both and they both are fighting an intense desire for the other. I loved it when Caine shared his dream. Team member Lyra's grandmother is a hoot also. This was such a great story and I laughed so hard in some spots. I finished it last night, dreamed about it and still woke up thinking and laughing about it. If you like crime drama, paranormal romance, with humor sprinkled throughout, this is for you.

    Blood Secrets is one of those books that, when searching for something memorable in a used bookstore, might drop from a rack high above and strike you upon your head. This book is rather thin but perhaps it could cause you enough brain damage to want to take it home and read about vampires and sex and vampires and sex and then some crime with vampires and sex. Forgetable, blah, nanana! I don’t remember much of this at all and I think I was drawn entirely by the title which isn’t always a good way to go when choosing a book. I bet others would enjoy it (others have judging by the ratings) and I respect it as a work of art, even though vampire books in general are starting to seriously offend me. This book just made me hate vampires a little more but it was still a nice little time waster and I give it some stars for that.

    This is my first book from this author. I really enjoyed this story and I’m not even big on crime books. There’s some romance toward the end of the book because the characters are constantly fighting their feelings. I wish the books would continue with the Cain and Eve though....because of this case that happened...the author just made it sound like the next book would continue what happened to eve...But the next book is Jace’s turn so that should be interesting..

    A young human woman is found ritualistically murdered in a downtown Necropolis hotel. It is up to Caine Valorian, a 200-year-old vampire, and his Otherworld Crime Unit to solve the unusual crime, and quickly before the human press can jump onto the story and cause a panic. To add to their already tough case, a new member, Eve Grant, transfers to their lab at the request of the mayor. Not only is she green and eager to impress the boss, but she's human. The first human ever to work in an Otherworld unit. The mayor thought it would be great press especially now with the strange human murder. Caine has his work cut out for him, especially with his unruly team who don't appreciate any help from a human. Not only is this the toughest case of his career, but he's unusually attracted to the new girl, which can only cause trouble for them all. However, as they sink deeper and deeper into the workings of the case, Caine and Eve become closer and closer. So close that neither of them can see past each other and at the real happenings behind the scenes. The more they poke and prod at the case, the more they realize that something is going on, that this murder is only one step toward a greater purpose. Someone in the Otherworld community is calling on dark forces, in a plot to wipe out the entire human population.I bought this as an ebook ages ago because I found the idea of CSI crossing over with vampires to be an intriguing idea. It then sat on my PDA while I read other things. I found that I wanted something short and hopefully relatively simple to help me come down after the high of Kage Baker's Company series and remembered this. It fit the bill perfectly.It's a Silhouette Nocture book, meaning it's a little shorter than your average single title, but Anna packs a full story into her word count. I did find the forensics aspect of the case to be rather on the light side - this is a story about the characters, and mainly Caine and Eve at that, not the science. So if you're looking for a crime thriller, you'll need to find another book.All the same, it was the pleasant and easy read I was wanting. The world set up is interesting - I find that idea of a whole, fortified city of supernatural creatures - which at this point means vampires, werewolves and witches - that the world doesn't know about to be a little hard to swallow, but I'm willing to suspend my disbelief on that aspect.I found Caine to be a more realised character than Eve (often the case in romances it seems, as if the author spends all their creative energy on the hero and doesn't have a lot left for the heroine). He had a past, a history and a solid personality, whereas she seemed to spend a lot of time rushing in to volunteer for things unwisely in order to prove herself. All the same, she wasn't annoying and her actions might have occasionally been reckless but they didn't go as far as being all out stupid.The presence of a shadowy villain whom the reader knows exists, while the characters are not so sure, suggests this is the first in a series. And indeed, Dark Lies comes out in October. I'm still deciding if I'll buy it. If I want another "pleasant and easy read" I'm sure it will qualify. It will just depend on my budget.Blood SecretsVivi Anna7/10[Copied from LibraryThing.]

    In the Black Heart Hotel, downtown in Necropolis a dead body was found, a young woman Lillian Crawford with her throat sliced open, but the strangely there is almost no blood at the crime scene. The otherworld Crime Unit is called in to investigate the murder, the team consisting chief the vampire Caine Valorian, werewolf Jace Jericho, witch Lyra Magic and vampire Kellen Falcon. They soon discover the killer has to be a vampire because the found some bite marks on the body, but the amount of blood missing is inexplicable, no vampire can take that much of blood.Because the victim is human and found in an otherworld city, the human police insist on bringing in their own investigator to help them catch the killer. So Eve Grant volunteers for the job, not knowing what she get her into. The crime team isn’t happy to add a human investigator to their team; they all have bad experience with humans. But Eve proves to be a fabulous investigator with some great contacts.Caine has another problem, he is attracted to Eve and he knows a relationship between the two species is never going to work. But when the killer sets his eyes on Eve, Caine is determined to keep Eve safe.Blood secrets by Vivi Anna is the first novel in her Valorian Chronicles and I have to say it was definitely a surprise how I enjoyed reading this book. The storyline is a mix of vampires, werewolves and witches and one of the best TV series of all times CSI, well what more could a girl ask for.The captain of the Crime unit is the vampire Caine Valorian. When his team is called in by department captain Mahina Garner, a werewolf herself, they didn’t have a clue what to expect. Not only will the find out that the victim is human, but they will have to work with a human investigator to catch the killer. Well none of the team members were looking forward to that, but Eve Grant turns out to be a fabulous investigator with some great hacker’s skills. The moment Caine and Eve meet, there is a vibration between them. But they both know the relationship cannot work, the human world isn’t happy living with paranormal creatures. Eve is determined to convince Caine otherwise and let him see they belong together, no matter what species they are. Because CSI is one of my favorite TV series, I know now why I loved this book. Caine Valorian is exactly the Grissom of his unit, calm but determined to get the job done. I cannot wait to read Dark Lies and see what will happen with Jace Jericho.

    It's the first novel in V.Anna's Valorian series. The chief of Otherworld Crime Unit, Caine Valorian, has a new case on his table. In order to solve this case, the OCU team has to work with a human, the member of the species none of the team members is willing to cross path..Interesting and complicated conflict between humanity and the 'Others' is one of the main reasons which makes this novel compulsive. Nevertheless, somewhere in the middle of the book it started to fade.Then fast but consistent evolution of the plot should this novel admirable for the readers who like not only nice love stories but also intrigue and mystery. But again.. Vivi lost this somewhere.. at some point of reading I felt like romance took over the mystery.Not to mention that I missed some integrity among characters (they act as individuals, there is no friendship or even partnership), the tpyes of characters (vampires, warewolves, withches) are not clearly developed. However, for me the main characters with thier inner issues and challanges are strong and fascinating enough.Unfortunately, Vivi's writing style is not so fascinating and amusing as J.R.Ward's or J.Frost's but I found it easy readable and enjoyable.At the end of the day each reader with his specific needs and delights will see this novel differently :)Have fun reading it!

    The Otherworld CSI team consists of two vampires (Caine and Kellen), a werewolf (Jace), a witch (Lyra) and a human liason (Eve Grant). The sparks fly immediately when Eve is introduced to Caine and boy do they fly. The romance between these two almost eclipses the murder they are investigating. Though, of course, the team does solve the mystery and rescue Eve from the bad guy.This is the first book in the Valorian Chronicles and what a terrific start to the series. I really like Valorian, Jace, Lyra and even Kellen (though he's a bit of a prick). #1 The Vampire's Quest#2 Blood Secrets#3 Dark Lies#4 Veiled Truth

    Blood Secrets is the start of a paranormal series about crime scene investigators in Necropolis, a modern-day city of vampires, werewolves, and witches, closed off to the rest of humanity and situated smack-dab in the middle o' Texas. The closed-off city, the mutual mistrust and prejudices of the humans and the paranormals reminded me of the television series about those aliens with spotted heads with names like San Francisco. I liked this book more than I expected myself to, and look forward to reading more in the series.

    This book was pretty good. I liked the mystery aspect, the emotions, a little suspense, a good steamy scene thrown in, and the cast of characters. All of the characters were interesting and would be great to read about, hopefully in the rest of the series. I would enjoy reading this again, but it wouldn't be a go-to book. More for passing the time in a more exciting way. Some parts were page-turning, the ending was great. HEA, *sigh*. Hope the former-boyfriend jerkwad gets whats coming to him, bad vibes man, bad vibes. Enjoy!

    The concept of a crime lab run by 'others' is intriguing to me. I'm not sure I like the idea of all the supernaturals living in a city apart form humans - I prefer ther to be more interaction between the species.I'm marking Vivi Anna on my list so I can read the next story in The Valorian Chronicles.

    It was okay for a quick read. The focus was mostly on the crime and solving the crime. It is about a human assigned to work with a crime team made up of non humun characters. The human females falls for the vampire in the group. I just wish that they would have went a little further into the story and show whether she was turned or not.

    Not a favorite, but it was worth a one time read. After I read the author's note at the beginning, all I could picture was Grissom as the lead male. It kept ruining my visual of the romance scenes!! The writer did well in letting the romantic tension build in a natural way, nothing about soul mates, but still got the feeling they were meant to be together.

    This is the 1st book in the series, I must have read book 2 first a while back. Good set up for the series, and an interesting take on vampire, werewolves, witches. Internal conflicts were a little light, but the characters and plot are so woven together it didn't bother me
