I want to tell you right off the bat, that one of the BEST things about Raven's Blood by Cassandra Lawson is it can be read as a stand alone story. Its not that I don't mind if you have to read it in order, but it is better getting a story where you don't always have to worry about reading it in order. I really liked Raven's Blood too. Its full of action, suspense, zesty romance and all the things that I LOVE about paranormal. We have vampires and Nymphs and other paranormal activity going on that drew me like a moth to flame. I loved Raven and Connor. Connor is definitely the kind of alpha male any red-blooded woman would desire. He is strong, sexy, confident and exudes sex appeal like you wouldn't believe. Raven is a good match for him because she is feisty, caring, and beautiful.
The story itself was sexy and was a real page turner. I think Cassandra Lawson is a new favorite author of mine, especially after reading Raven's Blood. With that said, I gave Raven's Blood a FINE FOUR AND A HALF SHOOTING STARS!! Its well written with a strong plot, sexy vampires, and feisty nypms! A paranormal delight!
They have formed their own community to fight and destroy the humans and turned vampires meant to do them and others harm. On one of their hunts, they meet up with Raven, who is a wood nymph, and Connor takes as hostage, due to her want to protect the humans she lives with.
There is a lot of adventure and you meet and get to know several of the born vamps. Connor and Raven begin a relationship, after fighting their mutual attraction to each other. This was a well told story, with very interesting characters that leads you through life, good and bad. The adventure continues in her next book, and I definitely want to read and
find out more.
For those who are interested, this book does not have a cliff hanger, and the sex is sensual, not annoying like some books.
Eternally tormented by the loss of her mother and feeling extremely guilty over her unlikely attraction towards a vampire, she feels this violates her mother’s final memory but her desires are strong. The author boldly explores a very dark and powerful theme of contrast and irony in this one which makes it a delightful read.
Connor, the vampire turns out to want Raven too, but on his own terms and the two embarks on an affair that literally sets my kindle fire----ON FIRE. The perils that lie ahead are many and the roads dangerous for these two, and what lies ahead may change their lives forever if they make it out alive. You must read this book.
Closely related to zombie stories, this vampire book could also be classified as post-apocalyptic. Raven's blood starts with the events that led to the creation of vampires. After greedy, selfish humans decided that the poor and the sick were a nuisance that leeched out of society, they plotted a way to eliminate them while staying under the radar. From this stupid mistake two kinds of vampires emerged: turned and born ones. The first are savage killers, the others (and a few exceptions of the first kind) sought the help of humans; yet, both were hated equally. (I'll stop at this in fear of revealing spoilers.)
From the wood nymph, Raven to the born vampire, Connor and everything in between, we learn of their story. What happened between now and a hundred years earlier after the world changed drastically. Reading about how life was altered after the events, how low people fell and what they did kept me turning the pages. Sure, the story itself is about those two protagonists and the first part is just a tiny part, but everything, back story included was so well depicted that I felt I was there with them. The introduction was so well done that I hurt with them, and even cried with them. This was not just 'another' vampire story for me. It was so different from the usual PNR. Sure, there was romance. Nymphs are in fact all about sex, they need it as much as they need to breathe, yet, there was so much more to Raven's Blood than that.
I'd recommend this book to both lovers of vampires and post-apocalypse/dystopian genre alike.
