Gabrielle Bisset truly knows how to deliver an outstanding story, laced with emotions that make you laugh, fall in love, sympathize and sob from a broken heart. She is one of the very few authors in which her characters remain true to themselves, even if it makes us uncomfortable and their actions leave us less than thrilled. I love that she unapologetically does what needs to be done in order to bring out the true nature of those characters and create a story in which we actually see growth, both within the character and their interaction with others.
Ramiel, a Visigoth, and the Son who never felt he belonged, was taken from his mother at a young age to become a slave in a Roman household. He never believed that his destiny was his choice; it seemed always to be decided by others. As part of the team that was assigned to work on the "Prophecy of Idolas", he never got why he was chosen as he hardly contributed to any deciphering or gleaned true understanding from studying it. Then he is sent, along with Thane, to retrieve a child who is a `born' vampire and is tied into the Prophecy as a key to defeating the Archons. The Archons are also vampires, but they want to annihilate all the Sons and their kind. Ramiel is not happy that, once again, he has to do something he is told to do, especially when it involves taking care of a child. To make matters worse, her mother informs him and Thane that one of them must sleep with her so that she can fulfill her part of the prophecy. This news throws both Sons into a tailspin as they look at the mother and think she has lost her mind.
Noelle is a born vampire, and she is only 5 years old, but has aged rapidly into the body of a young woman. All her life she has been told that her purpose in life was to fulfill the prophecy by bringing a child into this world that would be their salvation. And, her partner for this would be a member of the Sons of Navarus. Noele has pretty much given up on the idea of finding love since she has a destiny to fulfill. However, when she meets Thane and Ramiel, all that changes. She is drawn to Ramiel and begins to believe that just maybe, she will get the man of her dreams.
As Ramiel and Noele find their way to each other, both finally begin to think that fate has given them a true gift. Then a clarification in the prophecy proves that fate is truly cruel and leaves both of them reeling. As the team searches for the `key', Noele and Ramiel have to find the strength and the love to overcome the obstacles which are pushed upon them. They will indeed get their HEA, but at a very precious cost.
If you have read the previous books in The Sons of Navarus series, you will be torn by this one. It was, in my opinion, a very hard book to read as there are major changes that will leave your heart in a vice. It was not neat, and it wasn't tidy. It was raw and beautiful. It was also necessary for the stories natural progression. I can only imagine how difficult this was for Ms. Bisset to write, and as I said before, I applaud her for her courage and her ability to bring the Sons to life. Blood Prophecy is an emotional rollercoaster; brace for impact!
I was introduced to Gabrielle Bisset's work through a facebook book group I was in. I was looking for a good read and the Sons of Navarus came highly recommended. I have to be perfectly honest with you I have a tendency when reading a series to continue nonstop so it's like one huge book. I can't tell you where one ends and the other starts. That's a sign of a truly good read. The story line is so intense you just can't put it down.
I promised myself I would definitely review Blood Prophecy. I just feel Gabrielle Bisset deserves kudos for her work.
In my opinion (and I'm just a reader) Blood Prophecy is the beginning of the Sons war with the Archons who want to control the Vampire population and do away with the Sons. It is up to the chosen Thane and Ramiel to find certain people and the key to cracking the Idolas Prophecy. I don't like using the word cracking let's say understanding and solving the prophecy. After months Kali, Thane and Ramiel (who really wasn't much help) working the ancient scrolls and Kali trying to decipher and make sense of everything they feel they have enough of the clues figured out. Blood Prophecy takes Thane and Ramiel in search of a child, an old vampire and a key. While Ramiel and Thane are in search of the Key to the Prophecy Vasilije orchestrates a plan to pull the Dragons and Werewolves into an alliance to help fight against the Archons. Ramiel and Thane's first destination is to find Tarquin who was believed to have more of the prophecy deciphered then them. Okay I have to give up a spoiler here, when they find Tarquin the hunters have gotten to him first and murdered him. Not staking him but decapitating him so his body would be left for the Sons as a message. As the quest progresses they find the child (a born vampire not created) Noele (another spoiler) who is supposed to be 5 years old but because she is a born vampire her aging is accelerated so she has the body and mind of an adult. Noele is the first female who breaks down the iron barrier around Ramiel's heart. No give aways here. Sasa betrays Vasilije big time crushing his heart and soul in a way he never thought possible. One of the Sons is killed by the hunters; the prophecy reveals another son (not Ramiel) has to impregnate Noele. This is revealed after she's fallen in love with Ramiel and vice versa. Declan's (Saint) wife is kidnapped by the Order Marc Verrater who is obsessed with her blood and her. He wants to duplicate her blood (like a feel good addicting drug) so he can control the vampire population and rise to power. He's a sadistic bastard. Then we see Magistrate Consera meeting with Marc Verrater regarding the synthetic blood and mass producing and marketing it. I have a really really sick feeling that Kali's sire is the Magistrate Consera (she's missing) because of something he said in the meeting. But I guess I need to wait and see where Gabrielle takes this. A baby is conceived, the dead Son (not giving up the name) ends up in the Underworld, and Hades reveals his plan with the Archons and the Prophecy. A new character is introduced Nyx, Goddess of the Night. Appears to be with Hades.
There is so much emotion in this story and the different unexpected twists the reader will have a difficult time putting it down. This is what I found with the entire series.
Gabrielle has a way of writing back story within the main plot that doesn't make the reader feel like its jumping around. Everything has a purpose for being told and blends perfectly. Gabrielle I give your entire series 5* and I plan to re-read slower this time. I can't wait for the next installment "Blood Craving" to be released.
I really want to applaud Ms. Bisset for keeping the previous couples and characters in the forefront in her series, I like the continued updates and interactions. I like that its a continuously moving forward series that doesn't leave any characters behind.
