Publisher's Summary

A werewolf killer. A paranormal murder. How many times can Emma Bellamy cheat death?

I’m one placement away from becoming a fully fledged London detective. It’s bad enough that my last assignment before I qualify is with Supernatural Squad. But that’s nothing compared to what happens next. 

Brutally murdered by an unknown assailant, I wake up 12 hours later in the morgue - and I’m very much alive. I don’t know how or why it happened. I don’t know who killed me. All I know is that they might try again. 

Werewolves are disappearing right, left, and centre. 

A mysterious vampire seems intent on following me everywhere I go. 

And I have to solve my own vicious killing. Preferably before death comes for me again.

A solidly interesting series from Helen Harper

This, the first of a new series from Helen Harper, is an interesting and engrossing fantasy 'whodunit'. The lead character is likeable and is supported by numerous interesting characters from both the normal and paranormal worlds. The lead character's situation (a resurrection!) is unusual and it will be interesting to follow her through her self discovery. In good 'whodunit' style, the plot keeps you guessing right to the end. The narrator/actor does a fine job.

The only downside for me was the frequent glib use of the 'f' word. Despite this, I've pre-ordered the next volume in the series and expect to get subsequent ones if this standard prevails.

So good!

I love it! I pre-ordered Brimstone Bound because I trust the author. Everything I have listened to from Helen Harper has been fab and this story didn't disappoint. I'm excited for more to come! The narrator did a good job. I do have to set my listening speed a little faster with Ruth because she slows down when she's reading a character that's speaking and it's a little too slow for my liking, but that's just me.

I want to strangle the main character

I like Helen Harper's book, but I suffered with this one. Emma is a trainee, but she acts like she is the only one that can solve the case. I hope the next book is better.

Something different

I started listening to the story and found the British accents refreshing, even though it took me a while to get use to it. The story itself was different and I loved the fact that there was magical realism embedded within the story.

Interesting concept

The overall story was a bit repetitive and a tad predictable but the potential is there and rather intriguing. I'll definitely give the second book a listen.

Really Enjoyed This Book

Totally enjoyed this book, liked Emma, Tony, and sup squad. Lucas was very likable, and Emma and Lucas worked well together.

Pre-ordered book 2, can hardly wait to listen to the next installment.

A spark of a romance, which I really like, but no sex scenes, which I totally love.

Narration was excellent.

Good book

It’s a interesting twist for a crime novel. Plenty to keep you listening. Book is well written, the inter play of the supernaturals not overly complicated and comes out in the story as part of it as a posed to a lecture. Looking forward to trying another.

Enjoyable Read

I enjoyed this Urban Fantasy detective novel. Emma and Lucas were enjoyable characters, neither were annoying. The story tripped along at a good pace. The conclusion was satisfactory but with some unanswered questions that encourages you to read the next book in the series.
I liked it enough to get the next book.

Excellent start to new series

I am always excited when I get an e-mail that new Helen Harper book is available for pre-order. OK, I am kidding, I am stalking her on facebook. I have been also known to get up very early just so I can start listening as I always pre-order. Helen did not disappoint. We have an idealist and capable heroine who can be a bit slow on the uptake in human/monster relationships and we do cheer for her all the way through.
As always entertaining and one for best spot on my virtual library shelf. Can not wait for next one in series!!!
