Blood and Bullets by James R. Tuck

He lives to kill monsters. He keeps his city safe. And his silver hollow-points and back-from-the-dead abilities help him take out any kind of supernatural threat. But now an immortal evil has this bad-ass bounty hunter dead in its sights. . .

Ever since a monster murdered his family, Deacon Chalk hunts any creature that preys on the innocent. So when a pretty vampire girl "hires" him to eliminate a fellow slayer, Deacon goes to warn him--and barely escapes a vampire ambush. Now he's got a way-inexperienced newbie hunter to protect and everything from bloodsuckers to cursed immortals on his trail. There's also a malevolent force controlling the living and the undead, hellbent on turning Deacon's greatest loss into the one weapon that could destroy him.

My Thoughts:
Blood and Bullets was a great urban fantasy novel. I got very emotionally involved in it. Deacon's dark sarcastic humor had me cracking up laughing quite a bit. Beacon was a strong male character. He went through a lot that would make most people curl into a ball and give up on life. However, he didn't let that stop him. After his family was killed, he avenged their deaths by killing the monsters that killed them. I really hope to see a relationship bloom between him and Tiffany in the future. They seem like they would make a great couple. The plot was written fairly well. I found a few punctuation, grammar, and spelling errors. Not very many though. I liked that the plot was mostly non-stop action. It held my interest the whole way through. I got a little bit confused when Deacon was talking about the different types of guns because I have no gun knowledge. I am excited to start the second book in the series and see what kind of monsters Deacon runs into next.

I give Blood and Bullets : 4/5
