Laid back werewolf Ozzie had his world turned upside down one horrible night.  It’s been a year and he has yet to adjust to what he now is – both werewolf and vampire.  His former pack will kill him if they find him and if Ozzie’s going to go down, he’s going to go down in flames, taking out one of the most dangerous vampires ever to walk the earth while he’s at it.  To do that, he needs to get a hold of the Drone Vampires’ most prized weapon – sunlight grenades.  To that end, Ozzie captures Micah, a member of the team that developed the weapons.  What Ozzie doesn’t expect is the soul-deep attraction he feels for Micah, which could be his saving grace…or his doom.

Stephani Hecht brings back Ozzie, one of the original characters from the Drone Vampire Chronicles, and gives him a much-deserved happily ever after in Reborn in Blood.  I admit, Ms. Hecht had me wondering over Ozzie’s fate, and while I was pleased to see him find love with Micah, Reborn in Blood fell a bit flat for me.  Ozzie has done a complete one-eighty from the character he used to be, which makes sense in some ways, but is a pity in others because he’s lost the personality that made him unique.  Micah is endearing, but the tortured past he has doesn’t affect me as strongly as it should since nearly every hero in the series has been through trauma and none of the events are different enough to stand out.  Still, I found Reborn in Blood an interesting, if predictable read and those who are new to the Drone Vampire series will be able to follow along with ease and will likely be more entertained than those readers who have read the previous stories.  All in all, Reborn in Blood wasn’t my favorite book in the series, but I look forward to the next Drone Vampire tale in the hopes that Ms. Hecht recaptures her earlier magic.
