After reading book 1 in this series, Nightshade, I was hooked and I had to see what happened next. Bloodlust picks up just a few weeks after Nightshade. Jill is on the run, charged with protecting the former Vampire King's (Matthias') daughter, who was in danger from a society that would kill for her blood. Declan, a Dhampir again under the influence of a serum that curbs his emotions, is with Jill, trying to protect her. Jill's poisonous blood is slowly killing her, and a terrible enemy is about to be freed. There is so much going on in Bloodlust that I became fully absorbed in the story. I read this book very quick, and I fully enjoyed every minute.

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.

I read the first book in this series, Nightshade earlier this year and really enjoyed it. Michelle Rowen set up a very engaging, action-packed vampire world. Bloodlust starts right where Nightshade leaves off. Declan has been injected with a serum to control his dhampyr abilities. This leaves him unable to love, or feel any emotion. This is a problem since Jill thinks she is in love with Declan, but he can't return this sentiment. Jill is still struggling with the poisonous Nightshade running through her veins. Although it is useful to kill vampires (one drink from Jill's vein and the vampire poofs into ashes) it is also slowly killing her. Jill is desperate to find a cure.

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.

(Four and 1/2 stars) I just found out that this series is only planned for two books "Nightshade" and its follow up "Bloodlust". That is truly disappointing because these books have both been exceptional and original. The plot is unique and that is pretty difficult in the paranormal genre. The story is about a normal blonde woman named Jillian who accidentally ends up being injected by a poison called Nightshade that makes her blood irresistible to vampires. Unfortunately the minute a vampires samples Jill's blood, it dies in a blaze of fire and ash. In the first book Jill transforms into a dark haired vampire killing machine and comes to terms with all the things that are now a part of her new existence. She meets Declan, a dhampyr (half human/half vampire) who is involved in the Nighshade plot, and Mathias, a very old Vampire King. In this book, Mathias's evil twin brother Kristoff is rising to power after a long time locked away by his brother. And he has his eyes set on kidnapping Mathias's infant daughter to sacrifice her in a bid for immortality. Can Jillian find a way to save baby Sara? Will she and Declan be able to make a relationship against all odds? Is the Nightshade formula that flows through her veins really a fatal timebomb?

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.
