Devil’s Blood (Volume 1) by B.B. Morgan is an urban fantasy that centers on Alice Malone, who has spent the last ten of her twenty-two years using her blood’s supernatural boost to claw her way through the ranks of Belle City’s thieves’ guild. She has the highest bounty in the guild, an honor among thieves. Her mentor, Seamus Sylvester, takes her along on the heist of a lifetime, and this last job could be her ticket out of the thieves' guild, out of the city, and far away from the authoritative force of PAB. But when the heist goes awry, her future plans are altered in unexpected ways and freedom seems unattainable.

Everything is not as it seems; Malone is about to discover unexpected secrets that the PAB tries to bury. This gives the plot an enjoyable mystery element. It’s interesting to see how Malone’s fate takes a different turn – which I won’t spoil for the other readers. Her internal conflict is intriguing to read, and readers would definitely root for her quest for true freedom. She is a strong, well-written protagonist. I also have a soft spot for Malone’s friend, Tehdi.

The narrative of Devil’s Blood is clear-cut, the concept of the supernatural blood is imaginative, and the intricate plot is fast-paced. The characters, main or otherwise, have sufficient depth and are relatable. All in all, Morgan’s Devil’s Blood is a solid, quick read. I look forward to seeing how Malone and her friends endure in the next installment, Siren’s Snare.
