Review: Rogue Alliance

As soon a Shyla Ericson was old enough to escape, she left her hometown far behind.  Now a tough as nails L.A. cop, Shlya is offered the chance to work undercover on the case of a lifetime . . . but she has to return to her hometown to do it.  If she is to have any hope of tackling the demons of her present, Shyla must first confront the demons of her past.  Luckily, she will find a most unusual and unlikely ally.

Michelle Bellon's Rogue Alliance (CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform, 2012) is . . . familiar, yet odd.  Here you have the standard cop (female, this time) with issues obsessively hunting the elusive drug kingpin (suave on the outside, crazy on the inside) to the ends of the earth.  Familiar, right?  Now, throw in a laboratory engineered vampire.  Things just got a little odd.  I wouldn't call Rogue Alliance a great read, but it did hold my interest and keep me entertained through several doctor's office waiting rooms.

I received a complimentary copy of Rogue Alliance to facilitate my review.  No other compensation was received.  For full disclosure, see the sidebar.
