Not all vampires are bad and not all blood suckers suck blood!
Issala was my favorite character. Warrior woman. Ancient vampire. Lesbian. She uses silver injections to inhibit her bloodlust, but there is no cure for her obsession for revenge until she meets a human who gives her a reason to live. Her lover, Lorelei Renfield comes from a bloodline that serves vampires. The Renfield blood is more addictive than chocolate and more powerful than a wooden stake.
“Trembling leaf on a tree, are you so afraid to fall?”
As you can tell from the book quote above, Jen Ponce does an excellent job at describing the sadomasochist relationships between her vampires and their blood-bound slaves. Since the blood-drinkers derive pleasure from pain -- their own and others -- most of the torture scenes digress to intense sex. In contrast the relationship between the two main characters is expressed as tender lovemaking. It’s quite beautiful. Well done, Jen!
This author writes fiction in a believable way. Her characters have a depth that made me fear some, and fall in love with others. This novel is an emotional roller coaster of blood-draining terror and blossoming love.
I hope there is a sequel to this beautiful, bloody love story!
I’ve read two other books by this author. The Devany Miller series: Bazaar and Slip Song are excellent, urban fantasy novels. Also, Jen announced her newest book, Bug Queen, will be released soon! I highly recommend the books written by this talented writer.
The battle for good against evil wasn’t clearly drawn. At times it was a choice between evil & a lesser evil.
The protagonists were fully fleshed & strong, likable women, although one was a vampire warrior named Issala. The other a young woman named Lorelei Renfield who’s family had served vampires for generations as blood servants. Issala took regular doses of silver & did not partake of blood.
The villainess, Catherine, who had killed Issala’s former lover & had a broad streak of madness is also well drawn. Catherine had a vicious, cruel streak & her nightmarish behavior will haunt me. I would not recommend this book for young readers. Her “Pet” Morganna Renfield, Lorelei’s twin sister is a character easy to dislike.
Tessa, Logan’s wife was driven mad by his imprisonment of her in an attempt to cure the vampire virus with which she was infected.
The love story & love-making scenes between Issala & Lorelei were tender & sketched with a delicate, but still strongly erotic touch. Bravo Jen Ponce! I look forward to reading your other books, especially Blood Drunk (Blood Tetralogy Book 2). I just added it to my wishlist.
I received a complimentary paperback copy of this book in a goodreads giveaway. That did not influence my opinion for this review.
