Slade Donovan has only been a vampire for about a decade but is one of the best Shyeld's (vampire guards) that the Cascade clan has. Though Slade's specialty is explosives, he's the best tracker they have as well.
Raina Ravenwing is a game warden who has been investigating the disappearance of a teenage boy from her tribe. It's been reported that he was taken by wolves. Raina is in need of Slade's help in order to locate one of the unusually large wolves that have been spotted in the area so that she can tag it and track it.
Slade's commander, Achilles, orders him to help Raina with her mission to locate the wolves. Although he's reluctant (he dislikes cops), Slade won't go against orders. Slade has been dealing with what the clan doctor has termed 'moon sickness', but while he's out tracking the wolves with Raina, he experiences the worst case of moon sickness that's he's ever had. He just doesn't understand what's happening to him, and it's only getting worse.
With the time that he spent with Raina tracking the wolves, Slade not only learns more about Raina, but he learns about his past, a past that he could remember nothing of. Slade learns that he has the Were virus in his blood, which means that although he is now a full-blood vampire, he could transition into a wolf at any time, thus the term 'half-breed' vampire. The only problem is, Slade is afraid of what would happen if that occurs.Read more ›

So Slade is a full vampire. He was once a boy, and after a couple of years on the streets with no memory of his childhood years, he was taken in by the vampire clan. Allowed to become a Shyeld (basically part of the vampire army or security), Slade was eventually granted the gift of becoming a vampire in every way. Having nothing to lose and no hope of the type of life many dream, of, he is content with his job and happy with the only family he has ever know; the clan. But Slade is not as he seems and only a few suspect his true lineage. A lineage that could forever destroy his bond to the one thing he values - his clan. But sometimes destiny comes at a price and in those rare instances, that price reaps rewards never imagined.
At a young age Rains was chosen as the whisperer of her tribe. Other than the title, the role holds little value for Raina. She tries to live her life responsibly to avoid disappointing her tribe, but beyond all of the folklore and tales not to be believed, Raina hold little stock in the history of her tribe. Of course she loves her family and knows about her history, but to believe in all of the unlikely myths and legends would be foolish. Except last year vampires became very real when they introduced themselves to the public. One myth marked as true - is it possible that the legends of her ancestors are actually viable? Raina is not so sure until she hooks up with Slade to track a pack of wolves terrorizing an area of land. As a game warden she needs to know the pack habits, but Slade quickly disabused her of the notion that these wolves are an ordinary species.Read more ›
The Half-Blood Vampire was an okay read. I liked the spin on what causes vampirism and weres. The idea of it being a virus that needs to be activated is a new and fresh idea. Most of the plot was interesting yet predictable. I enjoyed Slade's character and his struggle to find out who he is. Raina was difficult to like due to her close-mindedness regarding supernatural beings. Even though she was working with a vampire, she refused to acknowledge what was presented to her -- that other beings exist. I also hated how she trashed her tribe's lore and traditions by calling it "mumbo jumbo." I felt her attitude was disrespectful and really didn't understand why she felt that way.
Overall, I thought The Half-Blood Vampire was just okay. Nothing about it wow'd me. My problems with the heroine ruined the book for me but Slade was great as the hero. His sweet tooth and affinity for candy won me over immediately. Even though it's the third book in the series, it was somewhat easy to follow. I think reading the first two books would help give the whole picture about the vampires and the clan.
