I like the groups of books that talk about a group of people who find both love and a mission in life and this series fits the bill. Vasilije and Sasa are the first of the pairs in the series but each story, unlike some of the other series, is quite different. There is no immediate falling in love, and in some instances the Sons are reluctant to feel anything toward the women they find themselves intertwined with in one way or another. This builds the intrigue and the plot in a whole different manner from many other series. And when I moved on to the second and third books I found that this same pattern is carried on. I never grew bored and finished the series as far as I could get books from it wondering what I would do now!
All of the characters in the books seem to have very different philosophies except for their devotion to the Navarus legend and while this very different, main plot keeps developing in ways the reader does not expect, other plots emerge and your mind is kept busy as you move through the details.
I loved the series as far as I have gone with it and will find the rest of it as it becomes available and will, no doubt, find it is one of my favorite set of books. DEA
Vasilije is a vampire that does whatever he pleases and he has sired many. He takes being a sire very seriously and some of his vampires that he has sired have become favorites of his. When he feels a pull one night that one of his vampires has been killed, he is determined to find the killer of his vampire and bring him to justice.
Vasilije travels to New Orleans, where his vampire, Teagan was staked in his own home, but when he gets there, he meets an alluring female human who he grows fond of like no other female he's ever met.
Sasa, who happens to be there in Teagan's home, when Vasilije appears. She has her own reasons to be there and those reasons Vasilije might not like. Vasilije maybe sneaking revenge on Teagan's death, but another vampire is sneaking revenge on him...and that vampire is using Sasa to help.
My thoughts on "Blood Avenged" because I really do not want to spoil the storyline of the book and give away too much is that I loved Vasilije in this book and loved who he hooked up with. =)
Vasilije is one vampire that definitely is not one to mess with. When it comes to his vampires he's sired throughout the years, he loves them no matter what. He was really harsh at times, especially when it came to the character Sasa, but the girl has sass. She was able to be harsh at Vasilije at times. I love the part where she plays up to another vampire just to get Vasilije jealous. You naughty girl, Sasa. Don't you know not to taught sexy, Vasilije. =)
Sasa had so much going on in her life and she had reasons to help the vampire out that wanted Vasilije dead. Sasa though learned quickly that the person she was supposed to be helping was nothing, but a jerk and only was thinking one thing and that was the "past" issues the vamp has with Vasilije. Sasa has another secret she's trying to keep from Vasilije which actually has helped in the past to work.
This definitely was a great full-story to the series, "Sons of Navarus". I loved the epilogue because it explained more on what is to come in the second book and the author even explained just a little bit on what Vasilije belongs in. I was also introduced to other vampire characters that I definitely want to know more about. =)
There is some serious business coming at Vasilije and the Sons of Navarus and if you plan to read this book, pay very close attention to everything in the book...especially when it comes to the person who wants Vasilije dead. There's another motive on why Vasilije is being hunted down.
I really loved Gabrielle Bisset's writing style and I definitely plan on reading many more books from her. She had been flipping pages like crazy to finish this book so I could read the next book and find out what happens next.
I recommend this book to paranormal romance readers, erotica readers, vampires lovers, and fans of Gabrielle Bisset books.
Fore warning, be prepared for some steamy moments in this book between the characters. You may want to read this book alone away from prying eyes....especially from family and friends who may interrupt you when you are reading a good part. I don't know how many times I snapped at my husband when I was reading a sex scene. He will never understand that when I'm reading...that I'm not to be interrupted. He's just asking for trouble.
Blood Avenged is a dark and sexy story. Sasa and Vasilije have exceptional chemistry especially in the bedroom. I really liked Sasa and Vasilije's story and the plot line that brought them together. However, I felt a bit disconnected with the epilogue. At the end of the story the reader is introduced to the Sons of Navarus. While I think the Sons aspect could be a very interesting story, it felt out of place to me.
