4,5 starsBlood Sins, the 11th book in Kay Hooper’s brilliant Bishop/Special Crimes Unit Series, kicks off just after the ending in the previous book, Blood Dreams, /book/show/4 , where the serial killer had been caught but discovered that he had just been used by a very powerful and dangerous puppet master.The mastermind behind the horrific killings is thought to be a man named Rev Samuel, leader of the Church of the Everlasting Sin, situated in the mountains near the small town of Grace, Nort [...]
Holy crap! I'm hoping I don't dream tonightbut if I do, I just hope this book doesn't influence my dreams or they'll be some doozy of a nightmare. "Blood Sins" is Kay Hooper's second in her 'Blood' trilogy and her 11th starring the 'Bishop/Special Crimes Unit'. This unit is a special FBI unit composed of agents with 'special' abilities--mediums, seers, telepaths, etc. They operate as quietly as possible when crimes seem to have some unusual aspects. I've got all of this series in my permanent li [...]
Sometimes it takes a little while for the fact that a book is terribly written to make itself clear. Other times, the very first page gives you dialogue such as the following: "And the monster who pulled his strings? The cold, calculating mind behind him?""We never saw him," Bishop answered. "Even though we believe he was close enough to watch. Close enough to affect some of us. Close enough to hunt and capture the prey for his pet killer."When the dialogue starts out that clumsy, one might hope [...]
Sheriff Sawyer knows in his gut that Reverend Samuel and his Church of the Eternal Sin is responsible for the deaths of the women who have washed up in his territory but he is completely stymied trying to prove it. Bishop and the SCU also know that Samuel is responsible and this time, they are going to prove it. Bishop has sent Haven operative Tessa Grey to infiltrate the compound. She doesn't read as psychic so she can move undetected. However, she detects Sheriff Sawyer and explains that he is [...]
Blood sins is a continuation of the Blood series of Noah Bishop . This is was one scary and creepy novel about a cult running in the Church of Everlasting Sin.People who go against the cult leader Samuel are getting killed in mysterious ways without him laying a hand on them .Special unit agent Tessa Grey is sent inside the compound to investigate .What she finds is even more scarier with people walking in the compound looking like Stepford wives . Noah Bishop and his team may have found an enem [...]
It was a great book but it is part of a series so i recommend for you to read Blood Dreams before reading this and then after u have read the last book in thew series is Blood Lines
The creepy in this one is excellent: a cult led by a dangerous psychic. And its power is spreading to the entire town. In addition, the leader is not only an old and very, very powerful enemy but also someone who is after the Bishop unit personally.So the plot I enjoyed. A lot. Sadly, and very much surprisingly, the characters did not measure up. Or, rather, they did not get nearly enough screen time to even try. To the point where both Tessa and Sawyer felt almost unnecessary. It wasn't even th [...]
I really enjoy this Bishop series. The book I have enjoyed the less are those with a higher lever of ghost and paranormal activities and with little romance. So, this story, shouldn't really have been a favourite for me. But I have to admit that I read it almost in one sitting and couldn't wait to reach the end.This is single handedly the investigation into a religious organisation and it's preacher - a psychic who keeps his flock under strict control and can actually kill without touch. Hooper [...]
The book wasn't bad (except the ending felt rushed) but I think I've just reached the end of my interest in this series. I really liked the early trilogy, but these last two books have been difficult for me to finish.
I loved this book to pieces! Including the gorgeous front cover I might add. I also love all the characters and the mystery in all the pages of the book. This is a very addicting series to read and I'm glad I am!
Blood Sins is every bit the bridging second book to a story's trilogy, but at the same time, it still managed it's own plot and story. While the story line was fairly straight forward, it had a lot of dragging moments and a lot of confusing WTF moments that gave me pause.While it is probably the weaker of the Blood trilogy books in the Bishop/SCU world, Blood Sins was still every bit as enjoyable as you'd expect it to be.The Story:Blood Sins picks up right off from where the previous book ended.

This is another of the Bishop Files series books. The books are all written as trilogies within a series so they often seem to go together. In this trilogy, this is the second book and it definitely feels like an unfinished story. It was interesting, but the open ended feel left me with an unexcited drawn out feel. It's more than 3 stars, but less than 4.
Just okay for me. Darker than I like, and I never have been able to tolerate anything that even hints at pedophilia. I'm guessing at least part of the reason I didn't particularly care for this book is because I didn't read #10, which must lead into it. Moderate swearing, moderate-to-severe innuendo.
Kay Hooper writes usually in a 3 book series. Haven’t found one that I dislike. This Bishop Crime Series is outstanding, have read them all also. Always awaiting and on a list for the new ones coming.
The serial killer found now who was the mastermind behind him. The SCU is investigating a cult leader who has psychic powers and use them to kill. He also tries to steal psychic powers from those that have them. The second book in The trilogy.
It was a good book, I enjoyed it.
This is not my genre. Blood Sins was given to me as a gift and I felt I should read it before it went out the door. For this type of book it is very well done just not my cup of tea.
I do like her writing.
I am a huge fan of Kay Hooper's, The Bishop Trilogies. Blood Sins is the second in the fourth set of trilogy books that she's written and it was awesome! As usual, Kay Hooper grabbed my attention from the beginning and kept me on the edge of my seat till the very last page! For those not familiar with these trilogies it is centered around FBI agent Noah Bishop and his Special Crimes Unit. The agents working in this unit all have special abilities whether it be mediums, precogs, abilities to heal [...]
Blood Sins is a continuation of Kay Hooper's book series about a paranormal investigative society led by an agent named Bishop. Hooper works in trilogies, and Blood Sins is the second in her Blood trilogy, but all of her books are easy enough to pick up without having to worry about reading them in any order. Yet for a book series centering on Bishop, he's lacking a lot of characterization or personality to give him any kind of precedence over the other characters.In fact, all of Hooper's charac [...]
Middle Part of the StoryBLOOD SINS is an interesting paranormal suspense but readers who start here will have missed a lot. The book continues the story of the Special Crimes Unit of the FBI for agents with paranormal talents and its civilian counterpart, HavenE STORY: After the events of BLOOD DREAMS, Haven and the SCU are searching for the man behind the monster. They believe that it is Samuel, the head of the Church of the Everlasting Sin. Tessa Gray works for Haven and has come to help find [...]

This is probably going to be the worst review I EVER do for Kay Hooper. It's not that she didn't deliver yet another great book. It's because I love her books sooooo much that I bought the first one in the series, Blood Dreams, and read it as soon as it came out. Reading that book was like watching the season finale of your favorite TV show to have it 'To Be Continued' at the end. It was vaguely unsatisfying and not complete. Then since I didn't know if the second book in the trilogy was going t [...]
When I first started reading this book, I was worried that I would be as disappointing as the first book in the trilogy, but it wasn’t. It started off a little slow, but things started to happen and I started to get more interested paragraph after paragraph. I started to see the book building up and shaping into something more interesting and intriguing than I ever thought to imagine. I was so engrossed that I couldn’t put the book down before long, and I was talking to the characters, telli [...]
This is the second in Hooper's newest trilogy, and as usual, a FANTASTIC read!From back cover:"Young, vulnerable, attractive, Tessa Gray made the perfect victim.

As the supposed new owner of property coveted by the Church of the Everlasting Sin, she'd be irresistible bait for the charismatic Reverend Samuel.

It was a very quick and fun read though. Sadly it’s not the first in the series so maybe if I had read that before this one, I’d know more about Haven, a group of civilian psychics who work hand in hand with the Special Crimes Unit of the FBI which, you guessed it is also all psychic. (okay technically there are many books before this, since Bishop had three trilogies dedicated to him and Quinten has two or three books but there might be only one with them all together…)In this, you’re d [...]
Blood Sins is the 11th book about Bishop's Special Crimes Unit and the second book in the Blood-trilogy. I haven't read ANY of Kay Hooper's earlier books, so was somewhat anxious to see how utterly lost I would be, by jumping straight into the middle of the action, so to speak.Fortunately, not much. Granted, there were naturally references I didn't get and background stories I had to guess at, but mostly the important elements were well described, and I had no problems following the plot of this [...]
Do you think you know what evil is? Do you think you could recognize it? Fight it? Resist it? What if you were dealing with a monster that took evil to a completely new level – and looked perfectly normal while doing it?!!? In the second installment of the “Blood” trilogy, Tessa Gray enters the compound of the Church of the Everlasting Sin, in search of the evil (that the SCU has encountered before) that is leeching the life out of Grace and its’ people. Tessa is a member of Haven, the c [...]
Reading this book was a little odd, as I have not been reading the Bishop series in sequence. I already knew the outcome to the setup of this book, having read a couple of the later novels, so part of my disappointment, the flatness of the story, may have been due to that.In this story, Sheriff Sawyer has been trying for some time to tie dead women who have been washing up on the shore to Reverend Adam Deacon Samuel and his Church of the Eternal Sin, and welcomes the help of the Special Crimes U [...]
