Handsome, brilliant, and surrounded by good friends, twenty-three-year-old medical student Miles Fox has a secret—and it’s not that he’s gay. Though he harbors a crush on his straight best friend, Luke. Miles, like his grandmother, Anna, possesses the healing gift, an ability she’s made him swear never to use or divulge, lest horrible things befall those he loves. It happened to her when Nazis butchered her family.

But it all goes to hell when Miles heals a terminally ill man on a New Orleans cancer ward and wakes locked in the psych unit. Worse, news of the healing miracle spreads. For millennia, its carriers have been hunted by those who would steal it. Dr. Gerald Stangl and his teenage son, Calvin, know what Miles possesses. They, like their predecessors, will stop at nothing to take it, including kidnapping, torture, and murder. As the Stangls' noose tightens, Miles and Luke are trapped in a death match with stakes higher than they could ever imagine







Review
You know the saying never judge a book by its cover? Well it applies to this book, honestly the cover did not make me want to go out and read this one. The storyline to Dark Blood by Caleb James that however is something worth reading. I would classify this one as a paranormal mystery with sensuality. I love a great storyline this one has it.
Miles is a 23 years old medical student. He has a gift to heal. Sounds cool humm? But what happens when the bad guys want you for that gift? He also has a huge crush on his best friend Luke who he thinks is straight. Ahh unrequited love. Makes for great angsty reading.
Luke he is the rock on Miles new and freaky world. He rolls with all that Miles throws his way. He even risks his life for him, and a whole lot more. I think we have just scratched the surface to Luke in this book.
Over all intensely angsty storyline that I could not get enough of. I really do want to read more in this series. I liked new and original takes on some old paranormal favorites in this story too.
