4.0 out of 5 stars Blood Awakening Review August 5, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Blood Awakening is a short story that works as a prelude for Wenona Hulsey's upcoming novel Burden of Blood. The silly banter between Nichole and Kat is hilarious, their friendship is one that you can admire and relate to. There is so much foreshadowing! Between the stranger in the dark, Nicole's dream and the intriguing ending, the story does a fantastic job of building as you go. Did we mention the love interest? For a small vacation crush, the relationship was done tactfully and not pushed too quickly. And who doesn't want to know who the mysterious man lingering in the shadows is? I know I do.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Back Story July 15, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
Blood Awakening is a back story into the beginning of Nichols powers. This short story gives you insight of what is to come for Nichol and Kat in "Burden of Blood" Wenona Hulsey's upcoming debut novel. It was a great short read and I look forward to the release of "Burden of Blood".

4.0 out of 5 stars A taste of things to come... July 20, 2011
By Emme
Format:Kindle Edition
I'm looking forward to the further adventures of Nicole! This short was light-hearted but had some ominous elements, as well-- that's the combination I like in my paranormal romance stories. I'm wondering, though, how this short story fits into the larger one that is coming out in the novel Burden of Blood. Guess I'll have to wait and see!

4.0 out of 5 stars I am intrigued. December 1, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Nicole is still healing from the loss of her mother. When she and her best friend Kat travel from their sleepy Alabama town to Panama City for a short getaway, Nicole encounters a mysterious man. As a result of this encounter, Nicole develops a strange ability. What will this mean for Nicole's future?

This book was a novella prequel to a new paranormal romance series, and I must say, it did an excellent job of pulling me in. Within the short story, we learn a lot about Nicole's character, and because the reader endures the traumatic encounter with Nicole, there is a connection, an interest sparked. I instantly felt like I wanted to see where Nicole's path would lead.

I liked that the story started off a bit light, as the young ladies are looking for some eye candy at the beach. When the story takes a darker turn, I find the timing perfect, and that it is this timing that really helps to hook the reader. I really enjoyed the writer's style, the dialogue seemed believable, and I liked the overall tone of the book.

So far, I am more than a little intrigued about this series, and am excited to read more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book! October 27, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Blood Awakening by Wenona Hulsey is the short story prequel to Burden of Blood. This is a fun and entertaining short story about 2 best friend and their vacation to Florida. Not only does Nicole meet the smart and handsome Nick, but she discovers she is being watched by a chilling dark stranger. Even in her dreams, she can not get away from this shadowy mystery man. After an unusual encounter Nicole is left with a unique ability. Something has awakened inside of her, but what? I can't wait to read Burden of Blood to find out more.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice intro to the series December 29, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was a pretty nice intro to the series. I think this prelude has done its job because I'm now interested to read the first book. I like Nicole so far. I'm curious to find out what exactly was awakened in her, other than the obvious. She must have more abilities than what we see in this prelude. I can see there will be some kind of relationship wih Nick and her friendship with Kat is fun. Lastly, I've got to find out who the mystery man is who "awakened" her.
