Présentation de l'éditeur

The Blood books center around three main characters: Vicki Nelson, a homicide cop turned private detective, her former partner Mike Celluci, who is still on the force, and vampire Henry Fitzroy, who is the illegitimate son of Henry VIII and makes his living as a writer of bodice rippers. Not only are the three of them caught in a love triangle, but they are, time and again, involved in mysteries with a supernatural slant—from demons, to werewolves, to mummies—and inevitably must join forces to solve crimes and defeat supernatural enemies.

Now all of Tanya Huff's short stories about Henry, Vicki, and Mike are being released in this collection entitled Blood Bank. As an added bonus for fans of the TV series, Blood Bank includes the actual screenplay for "Stone Cold," the episode Tanya herself wrote for the Blood Ties series along with a special introduction by Tanya, detailing her own experiences with the show.

Biographie de l'auteur

Tanya Huff may have left Nova Scotia at three, and has lived most of her life since in Ontario, but she still considers herself a Maritimer. On the way to the idyllic rural existence she shares with her partner Fiona Patton, six cats, and a chihuahua, she acquired a degree in Radio and Television Arts from Ryerson Polytechnic—an education she was happy to finally use while writing her recent Smoke novels. Of her previous twenty-three books, the five—Blood Price, Blood Trail, Blood Lines, Blood Pact, Blood Debt—featuring Henry Fitzroy, bastard son of Henry VIII, romance writer, and vampire are among the most popular. Tanya can be contacted via her website,

"Blood bank" et "Blood debt" font partie de la même série, série qui a commencé il y a plusieurs années (avant la mode déferlante des vampires), ce sont à la fois des livres policiers mélés à des histoires d'amour (non mièvres), j'avais lu les premiers livres il y a longtemps et j'ai retrouvé ces héros avec plaisir, on en redemande!

Series of short stories based on the Blood Books series 5 juin 2008
Par SciFiChick - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
Most of the stories take place around Huff's Blood Pact and Blood Debt. Also included is a proposed script for the Blood Ties tv show. Exciting, short mysteries laced with humor, made this a fun and easy read.

"This Town Ain't Big Enough" is a sequel to Blood Pact, where Vicki has to deal with another vampire encroaching in her territory. Suspenseful and intense, this was probably my favorite short story.

"What Manner of Man" takes place in Henry's past, where he tries to track down a spy. This was another fun one with plenty of intrigue, in the Regency era setting.

"The Cards Also Say" is another that follows Blood Pact. This time, Vicki hears an ominous message from a psychic.

"The Vengeful Spirit of Lake Nepeakea" follows Vicki and Mike to a remote lake that the locals say harbors a monster. This story had plenty of humor surrounding the mystery.

"Someone to Share the Night" stars Henry who begins to feel a little lonely, so he takes out a personal ad.

"Another Fine Nest" involves Vicki and Mike tracking down blood-sucking underground bugs. This was very suspenseful, with a high "ick factor."

"Scleratus" is a darker story, where Henry remembers his bloody past.

"Critical Analysis" involves Vicki and Henry trying to solve an impossible murder. These are always my favorite kind of murder mysteries.

"So This Is Christmas" throws Vicki into the role of Scrooge for this entertaining holiday tale.

In the "Stone Cold" screenplay, readers can compare this script to what eventually made it on the actual television episode.

With a wonderful arrangement of diverse stories, from humorous to more dramatic, this was definitely one of my favorite books of short stories. And Blood Bank is a wonderful addition to the library of any fan of the series.

It was nice to revisit some old friends... 30 novembre 2008
Par V. Dalpe - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche Achat vérifié
I have been a huge Blood Series fan for years, and this was a nice reminder of why I liked them so much. After reading the stories in this collection I dusted off the old books and re read the series. It was nice for a brief instant there to see Vicki Nelson resurrected from the growing mountain of urban fantasy heroines.

But, in my opinion, she still glows as one of the brightest as a strong, believably flawed, and smart lead character. So many of these Victory Nelson/ Anita Blake/ Sonja Blue knock offs lack the flavor and presence as main characters. Vicki is a believable character adapting to unbelievable situations, and I loved that.

I will say if you can swallow your pride and truck over to Lifetime Channel, the show was not half bad. A lot of the story lines are little more than standard paranormal cop dreck, but the actor's that bring these characters to the small screen do a darn good job.

**** Over the years, there have been several short stories following the further adventures of Vicki Nelson and Henry Fitzroy, and readers have had varying levels of success in tracking them down. Now, they have been collected in this anthology that will prove itself to be a great favor for those of us who had just about given up on locating the tales. Henry's past, how he and Vicki cope with life, or unlife, after they part, and how Mike copes with being in love with a vampire are the main focus. An added bonus is the shooting script to one episode of Blood Ties, the series. Blood Bank is a must read for Henry/Vicki fans. There's humor, angst, and passion on every page, making this a worthy continuation of the full length novels. ****

Good to have old friends back 4 juillet 2009

I was disappointed when Tanya Huff ended the Victoria Nelson series. It was so nice to see another book, even if it was just short stories. I wish there had been more with Henry in them. I would have liked to see Henry and Vicki come a little closer to conquering that whole "vampires can't share the same territory" thing. It's a much better read for me when all three characters are playing off each other.

I did not realize this was an old collection of short stories, so it really is not #6 in the series. The plots and twists are clever, but I think Nelson had lost interest in this series by the time she finished these. Fortunately she has moved on to better characters (the Valor books, for instance).
