Outbreak (Nightshades #3) Reviews
This entire series of novellas would easily translate to film, and I’d definitely want to watch.
Shades (aka vampires) are out of the closet and known to humanity. Shades don’t need or even generally want to hurt the humans they feed on, but the FBI has created an offshoot, the Bureau of Paranormal Investigations, to investigate crimes perpetrated by them.

Action-packed, fast paced read, finished in a few hours. Third title in a series which I would probably have enjoyed more if had read books 1 & 2 first. Some confusion regarding relationship between a few characters and motivation behind actions of others.

Review originally published at Vampire Book Club and based on a copy provided by the publisher.
Outbreak overlaps with the end of the previous Nightshades book Switchback, and revisits the same events from a different point of view. Lindy and the Chicago BPI pod are being blamed for the shade jailbreak, which is covered in more detail. The whole team is suspended and a SWAT team is sent to bring Lindy in. But Alex and Lindy escape and go on the run, planning to take down the real villain, Hector, ...more
