#BookReview: Extreme Medical Services (Extreme Medical Services #1) by @podmedic

Synopsis: Read the book described by one reader as "Like Grimm With Paramedics." Follow the exploits of new paramedic Dean Flynn as he gets assigned to a backwater station no one has ever heard of, Station U. He soon learns that his unusual patients are far from normal. They are the creatures of myth and legend. His tough, experienced paramedic trainer Brynne is determined to teach him everything she knows. With vampires, werewolves, witches and fairies as patients, will he survive? Will they?


Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
My Review: 
This is probably my new favorite series. As an EMT I loved this book from the beginning. It's rare to find stories that are so medically correct while being highly entertaining at the same time. The characters are all so different and entertaining in their own respects and while Dean may be my favorite paramedic I absolutely fell in love with the vampire Gibbie. I highly recommend this to anyone who loves medical fiction. 

From the Inside Flap

    Dean couldn't believe what was happening. He was in a darkened bedroom lit only by a single overhead light and the flashlights of he and his partner. A struggle was taking place on the bed in the corner accompanied by grunting, growls and shouts of the two paramedics and their patient. A diminutive dark-haired female was wrestling with a large, snarling, furry creature on the bed.
    "Get me the glucagon,"  Brynne Garvey said. "Right now!" Brynne was a lot stronger than she looks, Dean thought as he struggled to figure out how to reconstitute the powdered drug in the preloaded syringe. She was only about five foot two inches tall and her long, straight brown hair pulled back in a ponytail made her look younger than her 34 years. 
    "Probie. I. Need. That. Syringe." She said through gritted teeth.
    "I'm coming, I'm coming. I've never used one of these prefab syringes before." Deann finally got the syringe assembled and handed it to his preceptor. "Here."
    "I can't do the injection. I'm a little busy here," she said as she grabbed one of the creature's flailing arms and pinned it to its body with one leg. She avoided the claws that had spontaneously grown out of the creature's fingertips. "You do it, Probie! It's time you stepped up your game and showed me why you got this gig to begin with." The struggle on the bed intensified as the snarling creature seemed to sprout more body hair and grew even stronger. "Do it! Glucagon! Now!" The last was almost a whisper.
    Hesitantly, Dean stepped forward and injected the syringe into the hairy thigh of the creature struggling with his partner. 
    As the beast continued to struggle, Brynne muttered under her breath. "Humans are much easier to deal with."
