Ms.Tolles latest addition to her Blood Series, Bloodstone, takes us from Oregon to California, to Connecticut. Josh, a friend of Darby's, searches for help against an evil vampire.
Josh Brennan is a loner, a young man with the unusual ability to hear others thoughts, and has to either go out into the night where it is quiet or wear earphones to drown out the noise. One evening Josh bumps into Darby's old friend Melanie, causing her to slip. He grabs her arm and peace along with quiet calms him. Melanie is able to read people through touch, and finds that Josh is able to read people's thoughts. Intrigued in spite of her normal shyness, Melanie allows Josh to walk her home then gives him her phone number.
On the way back to his apartment Josh notices something small glittering at the end of a dark alley. He stops to pick it up. Thoughts from a distraught and evil vampire bombard him, and before Josh realizes it he is attacked and dragged into the alley. A vampire throws Josh onto a wooden pallet but as the vampire falls onto Josh, he cannot avoid the broken piece of wood Josh is holding. The vampire is impaled and dies while Josh runs for the safety of his home. Josh realizes he now will have to deal with the knowledge that vampires are real, but will soon face a future that will bring more vampires and werewolves into his and Melanie's life.
As with the first three books in this series, I have enjoyed this book as well. I will admit there were a few details that caused the flow of the writing to become out of sync. One was some of the characters would say "et al" at the end of their sentences. Maybe this is a local thing? Then there is a reference to a television show from the 70's, Alice, when Melanie goes into a diner named Mel's Place.

I was alittle confused at the beging with a new charaters but, I was quickly drawn to them and loved the new gift that was brought into this 4th book. I was even more excited to hear the news of Darby and Devan later in the book had to say I actually cryed. The only disapointment I have is that the next book isn't out yet and I am biting at my nails waiting for it's release.

T. Lynne Tolles does it again with book four. In this delightful tale we get to meet two new wonderful characters, Josh and Melanie. Two very unique characters with some very different abilities. I fell in love with two new members that added depth and intrigue to this wonderful series. Miss Tolles herself has a wonderful ability in creating characters that have you routing for them from the moment they appear. I highly recommend this book to fans of vampires, werewolves, witches and other supernatural beings. Sequel, Please for these new characters! :)

Josh Brennan is a loner, he can also hear others thoughts, he does his shopping at night and also wears his ear phones to drown out the noise. One night at the corner store Josh runs into Melanie. Melanie almost falls and Josh grabs her arm to keep her from falling, when Josh makes contact with her skin they share a connection and every time Josh is with Melanie he experiences peace and quiet. On the way back from Melanie's apartment Josh has a run in with a vampire. He kills this vampire and stays in his apartment for days with out leaving. When he does venture out again he runs into another vampire looking for a lost object. Josh runs into Melanie and she convinces him to come to her apartment and talk.

After the Vampire comes to Melanie's apartment and trashes Josh's house Melanie jumps on the back of Josh's motorcycle and they head to California to visit Melanie's friend Darby. When they get to Darby's house they learn that Darby leaves on the East Coast now. But Rowan and Blake offer to help them. The evil vampire does not give up, He even blows up the book store with Josh in it.

Melanie takes off in the hopes of leading the vampire away from Josh. She drives cross country for over two weeks, finding and helping people along the way. Josh and Melanie spend most of this book apart. When Melanie is trapped by the evil vampire Darby, Devon, Blake, Dean, Dominic, Anton, Sally, Rowan, Mark and Alyssa go after her.

This book left off on a cliff hanger that has me wishing for the next book. I did enjoy the new characters. I hope to hear more from Josh, Melanie and Alyssa in the near future. This book is almost always non stop action with a few curve balls thrown at you. Ms. Tolles has a real gift of creating great novels that keep you routing on the characters and falling in love with them. Keep up the great work T. Lynne Tolles.

I was vastly dissapointed with this series of books. They had much potential, and reviews looked good. Which is why I am writing this one. I didn't finish the first of the series. I started reading this one as my supply of books to read until my next payday is dwindling. (Did not realize it was the 4th book of the series as it wasn't labeled as such by Amazon).

The story between Josh and Melanie started out ok. Thought it was better than the craziness I read in the first book where everyone was falling in love with each other upon sight...Though it was much of the same for Josh and Lanie even if they weren't admitting to it. Their dialogue wasn't as ridiculous and the other characters' dialogues. Until of course, they came into contact with the original characters from the first book. Ugh. Here we go again.

I couldn't even finish reading some of what they were saying. People don't talk like that and I found it annoying as heck. Then the story ventures away from what gave it any appeal. Josh and Melanie are forgotten and we're lead into other character's "adventures"...ummm...stop it. Don't introduce me someone you will expand on in your next book because there is no way I am ever reading another book by this author.

Just horrible.
