Description - Blood Oranges by Caitlin R. Tiernan
My name's Quinn. If you buy into my reputation. I'm the most notorious demon hunter in New England. But rumors of my badassery have been slightly exaggerated. Instead of having kung fu skills and a closetful of medieval weapons, I'm an ex-junkie with a talent for being in the wrong place at the right time. Or the right place at the wrong time. Or . . . whatever. Wanted for crimes against inhumanity that I (mostly) didn't commit, I was neatly a midnight snack for a werewolf until I was saved by a vampire calling itself the Bride of Quiet. I was already cursed by a werewolf bite, and then the camp took a pint out of me too. So now . . . now, well, you wouldn't think it could get worse, but you'd be dead wrong. Caitlin R. Kiernan has created a pedal-to-the-metal, balls-to-the-wall female antihero who doesn't give a damn if you like her or not . . .which totally made me love her.' Amber Benson 'Deeply, wonderfully, magnificently nasty.' Neil Gaiman 'Caitlin R. Kiernan draws her strength from the most honourable of sources, a passion for the act of writing.' Peter Straub 'Caitlin Kiernan is a master of dark fantasy.' New York Times bestselling author Holly Black

Book Review: Blood Oranges by Caitlin R. Tiernan - Reviewed by Sheepcoate (06 Mar 2013)
Blood Oranges is a non-typical Urban Fantasy book, but one thats a challenge to get through. The book starts with a warning from the author about the violence and about the fact that this is not a typical teen paranormal romance story.
The plot follows Siobhan Quinn who is a monster hunter but she is also a Junkie which they place allot of emphasis on and also she has been bit by a werewolf and a vampire which is an interesting combination. The author has tried to write a quirky different book and if you care about the protagonist you may enjoy the book.
