Editorial Reviews

Review

PRAISE FOR INFERNAL AFFAIRS:
"Infernal Affairs has everything that's best about the paranormal mystery genre, and it continues to get better. Battis may not be as well known as some other authors, but these books are just as good as the more popular series, if not better."—Owlcat Mountain Reviews

PRAISE FOR A FLASH OF HEX:
"A Flash of Hex is wonderfully detailed, easily visualized and overflowing in paranormal crime scene action. The aspect most likely to capture the reader’s attention is the author’s talent in developing charming characters who are passionate in both their professional and personal lives."—Darque Reviews

PRAISE FOR NIGHT CHILD:
"Compelling new urban fantasy which mixes equal parts forensic investigation, modern science, and down-and-dirty magic to create something new and different...a great start to a new series."—The Greenman Review

I have been following this series and I loved it.

Whether he continues to write Urban Fantasy or in some other genre, I think that he is an Author to watch.

The characters are unusual, the on-going intermingling of the characters is exceptional.

All i can say is wow. What a fantastic finish. This book was fantastic. I could not put it down. Family has been a strong theme throughout and this really shows that family is who you make it. I love these characters and hope to see them again.

This story just wasn't as good a read as the earlier books in this series.

I think it was the long sections of inner monologue. I also thought the ending was a bit meh. Your mileage may vary.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
In Victoria, Occult Special Investigations squad agent Tess Corday is on medical leave recuperating from on the job injuries (see Infernal Affairs). With time on her hands, Tess follows up to what she learned about her paternal roots to find out more about her origin. On her way to buy cigarettes, Tess notices an anomaly, a stoned vampire.

OSI Detective Selena Ward calls Tess to ask her and Derrick to help her for a few hours investigating the murder of Lord Nightingale the ruler of the necromancers and governor of Ttrinovantum who died at the Simon Fraser University Bennett Library. The pair head to the crime scene. Soon Tess and her "family" (Derrick, Miles, Patrick and Mia) make inquiries into the homicide while she also looks into a drug that leaves vampires dazed and the whereabouts of her father.

The last OSI urban fantasy (see A Flash of Hex and Inhuman Resources) is a great finish to a strong paranormal police procedural. Tess is at her best as she works three cases (one authorized) with each different yet dangerous. Fans will enjoy the heroine's curtain call and hope for her to return one day soon somewhere else in Canada like Toronto.

The osi series has been one fun ride. One twist after another jes battis has shown great growth for his characters. I loved this book but there was some bumps in the road that didn't make it go as smooth as I would if liked it too gone.

I have been following this series and I loved it. I hated to have it end. Night Child was the 1st one, then A Flash of Hex, Inhuman Resoures and now Bleeding Out. I will miss the gang. But I liked the ending. Bleeding out really surprised me about Tess' Father. It's a fun story. I do recommend it!

Thank you Mr. Battis for a wonderful ride. So what are your writing now?

This book is the ending to a series I really liked. I think it is too bad that he decided to end it here. The story is not a bad one, but bleeding out is just that. He is having a language hemorrhage and he just can't stop the mind dump, depressing description after depressing description until you are ready to scream. If he ever went to a sad/bad poetry open mic night with this stuff he would win. I guess he needed to get it all out of his system to let this series go and he did that. There is nothing left to say about letting a loved one go. What is left to say is what happens next to all these characters, people we grew to care about over the years, but I guess we are never going to know.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Jes Battis' 'Bleeding Out' is the fifth, and final book in the OSI series featuring Tess Corday, a woman in touch with the earth, if not her own feelings.

This final installment sees OSI Detective Selena Ward calling Tess and Derrick in to deal with the investigation of a high profile murder, that of Lord Nightingale, who is the highest ranking necromancer and the governor of Trinovantum.

When an author wraps up a series, particularly if it's a lengthy one, there are a lot of loose ends to check off. Sometimes, making sure that everything is neatly taken care of can make the book feel like it's a list of events, with characters explaining what's going on. At other times it gives the reader a feeling as if they've shut the door after a long visit with old friends that they can remember fondly.

In some ways, Bleeding Out does exactly this very well. No character is left hanging, but at the same time, the pace of the book is so comfortable that the reader doesn't feel any urgency. Yes, there are some vampires 'juiced' and acting kind of freaky, but they lack any true menace. It feels more like the neighborhood kids got a little uppity, and OSI has to step in and remind them that there's no feeding on people without their consent.

Although there isn't any imminent peril to Tess or her little family, issue of her past, as well as that of her necromancer boyfriend Lucian do come to light. Among those is the truth about Tess' father, as well as some things that her mother has been concealing from her.

In short, Bleeding Out is well written, but at times almost too neatly done; the kind of final chapter that leaves readers satisfied, and won't annoy anybody who's been hoping for a few more answers to lingering questions in the OSI series.
