Part of the appeal of this series and this book is the characters. Jill is an ordinary woman, but because of being in the wrong place at the wrong time, she is now enemy number 1 to vampires. Her blood is alluring and poisonous to vampires. She could be the ultimate weapon, if she only had that killer instinct... Jill does toughen up a bit in Bloodlust, she is more accepting and understanding of the dark side of the world, and I really enjoyed her character even more. Declan, he was his frustrating yet endearing self. His Dhampir nature starts to cause problems, and Declan has two faces. On one side, he wants to protect and love, and on the other, he is dangerous and just wants to leave. I was frustrated with him for trying to leave Jill all the time, but I felt for his situation. Declan and Jill are such an odd couple, but it when their relationship is on track, it is hot and alluring.
As I stated earlier, there was a lot going on in Bloodlust. The plot turns were well done and unexpected.Read more ›
To make things even more complicated, Matthias, the Vampire King has fathered an infant dhampyr who is in grave danger now. Centuries ago, Matthias and his twin brother Kristoff killed a dhampyr infant in a ritual, giving them true immortality. Kristoff is super evil, and to save the lives of many, Matthias has had Kristoff imprisoned for over 30 years, but as is the game of vampires, someone betrays Matthias and steals the key to free Kristoff, putting Matthias's infant in danger.
But wait! I'm not done with the complications! Matthias, once thought to be really evil by Jill, has proven himself..not so evil. There is definitely a grey area, and Jill starts to put some of her trust in Matthias, especially when Declan starts to go into sporadic dhampyr rages - Matthias may be the only one that can help him.
I know the set-up makes it sound like there are a hundred different things going on in this book. And well - there are. But it will make much more sense if you read the first book (which I highly recommend!!). The name of the game in this book is betrayal.Read more ›
The book is gripping. The characters are gripping. The action is pretty much nonstop. Although this is officially a paranormal romance, the romance definitely is secondary to the thrilling supernatural plot. Jill is a nice girl and we root for her. She truly ended up in this situation by accident and its nice to see her strength in dealing with the fate she has been given. She doesn't wallow and whine 'why me?' like so many heroines seem to. She isn't happy about it but she faces it. I also like Declan.Read more ›
