Blurb: Private detective Duncan Andrews’s best friend Gina is a witch. His dog is a zombie. And his dead boyfriend, Robbie, is a ghost. So it’s hardly any wonder that he uses his connection to the supernatural to help him solve cases. In Pale as a Ghost, Duncan’s on the trail of a serial killer who may not be human, while also trying to move on in his dating life. In Animal Instinct, someone is using the skull of a powerful wizard—Gina’s father—to control animals and attack young Ashton Marsh. In The Scarlet Tide, Duncan’s latest case leads him to Chicago and a band whose members are all vampires. And in Dead End, Robbie’s cousin Jason has moved into a house that’s haunted by a serial killer, and Gina’s on the run from witch-hunters. Through it all, Duncan must solve the case and balance a complicated personal life.

Pale as a Ghost stars private detective Duncan Andrews and his faithful zombie dog, Daisy, his best friend Gina, who is a witch and his boyfriend’s ghost, Robbie, who was killed ten years prior. I liked the story. It flowed smoothly with some humor thrown in. Duncan is able to see, hear and communicate with ghosts hence his ability to see his dead boyfriend. Makes for dating non-existent. He is lonely and wants companionship when he meets Nick. 

The cases he takes on are both complex and simple. Find a missing woman and determine who is killing women. The second case takes on a disturbing vibe as he discovers the person is not actually human. This person is copying the jack the ripper murders once every one hundred years. There is plenty of action, suspense and drama to be had throughout this story. I liked the flow of the book. Very well detailed with a hint of more to come.

Duncan is on the hunt for a stolen skull belonging to a powerful warlock. This skull gifts the human unimaginable powers while at the same time changing them. Several deaths and many attacks later Duncan’s life is at stake to find the culprit. 

A fantastic story with plenty of action, mystery and suspense. I loved the way Duncan left no stone unturned in his quest to find the skull. A television psychic causes Robbie and Duncan problems as well by making Robbie think it’s better for him to move on. I loved it.

In this exciting addition to the series Duncan is on the case of finding a boyfriend who is acting strange only to discover he’s a vampire. Doing away with a band of vampires is not easy. Duncan gets a shock as the leader Dominic bites him. Amid all this is Nick’s request to Gina to allow him to see ghosts and Robbie’s plans to leave on New Year’s. 

I liked this story. Though I do have to say it is getting irritating about the way Robbie and Duncan keep bringing up and pondering Robbie leaving. Either leave or stay already. Make up your minds and stick with the decision.

Duncan Andrews is on the case of an evil ghost hell-bent on destroying lives. Moore was a doctor but also a serial killer. He took the lives of seven young men then his own life. In death he is the embodiment of pure evil. With the help of his team Duncan will attempt to get rid of the ghosts haunting Jason’s, Robbie’s cousin, house. 

In this book a lot is going on. A witch hunting group has set sights on Gina for elimination, an incubi is on the loose, Nick has settled into his ghost helping, Duncan and Robbie come to terms with their relationship. I liked all the new twists and turns as they kept the story interesting and intriguing.

Overall:

All in all, this bundle was absolutely awesome. Each book gives the reader an insight into Duncan and Robbie’s lives. The cases bring about a closeness with each other as they work together to solve each one. The paranormal characters were different and fresh for each story and drew the reader in. Demons, incubi, ghosts, witches, hunters, vampires and a zombie dog made for fantastic well written reads. I truly loved them and highly recommend each one.

Review: This story is part of a series and must be read in order.

After the events in Dead End Duncan has his protective instincts flaring to life as he comes to terms with Robbie’s shocking return to human, Duncan’s worried sick that he will lose Robbie again if Robbie helps him with his investigations. When Duncan accepts a new case involving a young man, Graig, and werewolves he has to trust Robbie knows what he is really doing and set aside his own fears.

This is another fantastic addition to the Duncan Andrews Thriller series where we see Duncan dealing with his fears and accepting that he can’t control everything. The opening scene sets the tone for what we can expect from the werewolves, there’s no sweet little wolfies in this story, instead we have vicious uncaring monsters who will do anything to get their own way.

Duncan and the gang, Robbie, Gina, Nick and Daisy, with the addition of Elton (the demon) and Dave Carson (Duncan’s police Lieutenant friend) face a foe far more dangerous than any they have faced before, a werewolf pack aided by a vindictive witch. A witch Gina knows. It’s the biggest battle that they have faced and… well I’m not gonna say what happens but let’s just say one thing that did happen made my lip quiver and I made a wookie cry face.

Ah the joy of being pulled into a contemporary paranormal story where you never know what you could face next. After the events in the previous stories (so yes reading them all is a must) you’d have thought that you had already seen everything but the investigations just keep coming and where an investigation leads danger surely follows… especially for Duncan and the guys.

This series is fresh and exciting, and Under A Blood-red Moon is no exception. I was drawn in by the story and enjoyed every, well nearly every, minute of it. Not only did we get to see Duncan and Robbie making up for lost time but we also get an exciting investigation and danger and action…. There’s a massive battle with every one of Duncan’s friends throwing their lot in and it’s messy, bloody and hell they’re lucky they have Gina on their side!

I recommend this to those who love a bit of paranormal in their thrillers, who adore love stories that are nearly impossible to believe, who love danger and the thrill of never knowing how things will turn out, and an ending that makes you want the next book now!
