The Paramedic’s Angel (Extreme Medical Services Book 2)

Book Blurb:

One Paramedic and His Guardian Angel

Paramedic Dean Flynn is finally getting used to his Unusual ambulance patients. But with werewolves, vampires, fairies, and more as his 911 patients, is he ready for an Unusual in his personal life?

Ashley Moore is not just an ER nurse, she is a heavenly angel on earth. Can she protect Dean and help him stop the hate crime attacks on his patients? Someone is determined to start a race war and only Dean stands in the way.

The story continues on! The more I read this series, the more I see the expertise of its author coming through. The sheer attention to detail is phenomenal.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not a Novel - an installment in a serial.

This is the second book in the Series. The story and premise are good, but this is not a stand alone novel - and neither are the others in the series - nor are they novella's because they do not have any type of resolution. Each book is more like an installment or several chapters in a serial. I read this book in under 2 hours. Because it is a short installment in a serial it gets very annoying to have the Author retelling part of the previous story the same way that must be done for honest to goodness stand alone novels in a series. That retelling takes up a good portion of this part of the series, therefore seems like padding.

* * * SPOILERS BELOW * * *

The story itself is unique and interesting, however it is taking a turn for the 'MarySue' as the hero finds himself the object of an Angel's affection - the highest in the 'unusual' or supernatural pecking order. The author certainly knows a great deal about being a Paramedic, and this twist in the horror/Sci Fi Genre is a new one. But to be honest I could do without all the very detailed descriptions of a paramedic's work - that was great in the first installment of the series but now it seems a little tedious.

Don't expect there to be any resolution at the end of this book, you must move on with the serial. And it's not a cliff hanger either, it 'ends' just like the end of another chapter

Dean is moving along in his probationary status as a newbie. He is learning more everyday. One of the highlights of his learning is delivering his first baby. We also meet some more people in the series. Soon good...some bad. Dean also meets his Endara or angel and also his girlfriend, Ashley. She is instrumental in getting Dean and James to accept each other and become better friends.
We also start hearing more and more about "The Cause". The Cause is a hatred group who are determined to harm and kill all Unusuals. We also learn that Mike, Dean's mentor, is one of the leaders of The Cause. Brynne is finally convinced that Mike is not the person she believed him to be. Towards the end of the book, violence against Dean and Ashley is intensified and James and Brynne convince them to move into James apartment building for their own safety. The author, Jamie Davis, gives us more insight into the life of paramedics and how they do their duties while building up drama in his continuing story. I can wait to read the next book in the series

5.0 out of 5 stars Intrigue

As we get deeper into the series, the medical focus is beginning to give way to intrigue and even murder. This should please those that weren't as happy with all the medical description. I still think that in a time when health care is a national focus that setting these novels against a medical backdrop is nothing short of brilliant. Surely there is some connection between the underserved population and the undisguised hate crimes of the books and the real tensions in our nation. Hopefully, we will choose to be Dean and Brynne and not Zach and Mike during the national tensions. I look forward to seeing how the situation resolves in this ongoing series.

Extreme Medical Services: Paramedics for Supernatural Creatures

More years ago than I care to remember, I read a series about a hospital in space called Sector General. It was fantastic and ran to a number of books in the series. This book greatly puts me in mind of that series. For me, it helps answers a number of questions that run along the lines of how does our government systems cope with the medical needs of paranormal creatures living among us? This author has chosen to call them “Unusuals” and does a wonderful job of explaining what happens if they need to call 911! I’m looking forward to reading more in this series!

Book Blurb:

Tops in his Paramedic Academy training…

…didn’t prepare him for Station U.

What was more dangerous, the supernaturals or his boss?

Dean needed to learn street medicine fast. He’d trained to help humans, but he wasn’t prepared for injured fairies and monsters. Still, he was smart, willing to learn, and more than anything, incredibly curious to learn about this whole new world he didn’t know existed.

Would it get him killed?

She’d been at this job a while and was less than enthused to be given a new probie. There was always a lot going on, but Brynne has something on her mind. What happened to her old partner?

In the dark of night…

…a society few humans know, thrives.

And someone wants to bring them down.

You’ll love this supernatural medical thriller, because the fast-paced life of an EMT is better in the world of vampires and mythical creatures..

Rating: 4 out of 5.

The premise is interesting and different from any other sci-fi fantasy that I've read lately. So good idea. Typical plot - young hero plunged into a new world he didn't know existed. All fine. But for me the book falls short in two areas: it reads more like an EMT textbook that a novel. Way too much information on drugs and procedures. Too little on the characters, their personalities, motivations and plot. And second, I hate cliff hangers! I don't need everything resolved by the end of the book, but don't drop a major plot twist on the last two pages, expecting I'll buy the next book in the series to find out what happened. If the story is strong, and I like the characters I'll buy the next one. If not, I won't. A cliff hanger ending just irritates the reader.

For the most part I liked this book. It has an original and interesting premise and a take on "Unusual" people that I found appealing. The characters are adequately developed, even if Dean seems to some readers to be excessively uncertain. If I had found out suddenly and shockingly that the entire world was different from what I had always believed, I might well be somewhat unsure myself. I also liked the information provided about Emergency Medical Care and the roles of Paramedics and their work in Ambulance Services. I enjoy books that teach me something new while simultaneously entertaining me. And this work succeeded on both levels. Given all of the above, I might have given the book Four Stars, had it not been for the ending.
I should not even call it an ending. This novel does not conclude; it merely stops. Yes, one secret is revealed at the end of the book, but I found that a completely inadequate ending. As a result the entire book reads as Part One of a larger novel, rather than as a story complete in itself. Nothing at all is resolved here, and I very much resent feeling that I must buy the rest of the series to find out anything that results.

The switch in main character from the prequel threw me a bit I will admit. Trying to see all the "weird" from a masculine view of the newest member of the paramedic team was really interesting. The blurb sets up the story perfectly.
Follow along as Dean learns he is not "superman" when something goes wrong. The concepts of emergency personnel needing emotional support for trauma is just now being recognized. It is about time. The author handled this delicate subject with a clear view and honesty that was refreshing. Yes there is a mystery running through the story. I found the interactions of the characters to be adult and realistic.

Did I like the book? Yep, bought the next 2 books. Found myself another really cool author.

Interesting tale but there are some holes in the story. Dane has some problems and contacts his old supervisor for Help. Hes told hes at a convention out of town. But hes actually a part of a Terrorist group. That trying to recruit him. So why send an unknown person to recruit him instead of the guy he already trust. That's a hole. Also if James is such a good guy and why is it ok he's willing to mess with his partner's memory. And why doesn't she care he believes it's so easy. Hes already proven hes going to break his word to her because she doesn't matter. Hes proven his word only matters to other supernaturals. Humans aren't worth him keeping his promise. In the end the book is worth reading but don't expect a masterpiece.

Read the sample chapter for book 2. The book does a 180 on you in book 1 his partner tell him tostay away from supernatural love interested. Now she like go for it it worth it. Shows that james has already reprogrammed her. Or the author changed his mind about were the story should go.
