About Of Scions and Men
Geopolitical babysitting while arresting preternatural killers, it’s just the daily grind for Scion Rowan Brady. Brash and sarcastic, Rowan has sold her life, her career and her very blood to the controlling paranormal ruling class of America, all to make sure her kid brother can eat. Now she uses her powers as a scion to kick the ass of any preternatural creature idiotic enough to break the rules and prey upon humanity without a license. All it costs her is her freedom and a pint or two per week to her new Master.
But juggling her job and duties becomes even tougher when she is tasked with keeping a contingency of diplomats from Canada from getting gnawed on. However, negotiations for an International Blood Exchange are interrupted when bodies start showing up.
Now Rowan must rely on her talent and wit to defend the society she despises to save the lives she’s sworn to protect. But as she stumbles into the truth, she chances becoming a target of not only these killers, but of her own government. With shifters, ghosts, vampires and psychics all watching her, can she stop the killings before she is silenced?
Reviews for Of Scions and Men
I would like to thank Curiosity Quills Press for a free ARC of this book in exchange for an open and honest review.

Vampires are a tricky subject. On the one hand, they are the classic monster, all inhuman and brutal. On the other, they are a form of rape fantasy and loss of control for the victim. On the gripping hand, you have the insane modern takes, from pretty boys to sparkling statutory rapists.
And sometimes they take over the world. In Courtney Sloan’s debut novel that is exactly what happened. Humans were too close to wiping each other out, and the world’s vampires stepped up to save us. You know, the food. While the world is not fully fleshed out in this [...]
I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. Except for a few grammatical errors, there was nothing wrong. I really liked this take on a Vampire/Dystopian society, where vampires ruled and humans learned to live with, more or less. Some vampires had scions and those scions usually worked in some way for them in different capacities. I also liked the relationship between Rowan and Devon and how each of them interacted, not just with each other, but other people as well. No spoilers from me; just a really good book and I'm looking forward to the [...]
