Ugh, serialized stories make me completely bat shit CRAYZEEEE, which is why I m extremely picky about whose cliffhanger ish books that I ll read.But Shira reeled me in with her Mermen of Ea series plus, I enjoy a good vamp story, so this series was a no brainer for me.Book two of the Blood series, Blood and Ghosts , made me feel like some manic animal that you see on YouTube videos trying to catch that damn red laser pointer dot.Forever chasing, chasing and chasing.Don t get me wrong, the book w [...]
continuation of buddy read with my girl Deirdre Sheri.ending Talk about a cliffhanger I might have been slightly grumpy if I wasn t prepared to start book 2 immediately And things don t slow down here, nor do they finish all neat and tidy I m stoked for book 3 d this time we have to WAIT Deirdre the waitingGah But I will be planning my calendar around book 3 I did just check on the smartphone that there is not yet a release date for that book yet I shall work on my patience apparently, lol.The e [...]
Book 2 in my Blood Series from Dreamspinner Press Whereas Book 1, Blood and Rain, ends with something of a cliffhanger, Book 2 ends with a happily for now for the main pairing of Adrien and Nicolas Book 3, Blood and Eternity , will be released in early 2016.This book picks up where the first book left off in the lead up to Nicolas s wedding to Rosina Rousseau But all is not as it seems, and a 200 year old secret is revealed that throws the wedding into chaos and will forever change Adrien s life [...]
Note This book was provided to me by the publisher through Hearts on Fire Reviewsin exchange for an impartial review 4.5 starsShira Anthony has created another masterful tale of adventure and intrigue I found it hard to believe, but this story was even complex with intricate subplots, action, drama, and romance than the first in the series, Blood and Rain As the story opens, the wedding of Nicolas Lambert to Rosina Rousseau is set to take place in a few weeks Adrien Gilbert, who has vowed to pr [...]
4 stars Binge reading a series when the last book is not out yet is never a good idea but alas, here I am The story in general was very gripping, I couldn t really put down the book because I just had to know what happens next Every twist and turn comes up with yet another heart breaking scenario for Adrien and I was really feeling for him right up till the end.I honestly enjoyed the first book slightly but that s probably because it was a linear timeline and was just the beginning of the iceb [...]
I really loved this book, even with it s twists and turns with the time travel thing And the ending I wanted it to be a HEA, but I was happy the two MCs were finally together Can t wait to see what happens next.
OMG Shira Anthony is awesomely eeeevil.I want the next book now.
2.5 Stars Meh.Too many time jumps that had me as confused as Adrien was, as to just where he was I like plot twistsbut they need to make sense Ugh.
Review can be read at It s About The BookFirst of all if you haven t read book one of this series I m going to direct you to stop right now and go read reviews from the first book, Blood and Rain You absolutely have to read this series in order I m not trying to spoil but there s really no way to review book 2 without spoiling book 1 so be warned if you continue reading.Book 1 ended rather brutally so couldn t wait to get my hands on this one I NEEDED some resolution However this series is a tri [...]
It s no secret I m a huge fan of this particular trilogy or at least the first two thirds still awaiting the final book drums fingers loudly against desk Warning contains very minor spoilers but nothing other reviewers haven t remarked upon Blood and Ghosts takes us even deeper into Shira Anthony s intriguing world of vampires, hunters, and immortals a world that breaks some of the usual tropes in surprising and delightful ways although I couldn t help but grinning, as a long time Vampire the Ma [...]
Ugh, this was even frustrating than the first book It s not enough that Adrien is plagued by his nemesis Pelletier, instead, for most of this book he s stuck dealing with himself And yeah, that s how I ve been feeling about him for too much of the story stuck with his very unlikable self There s no reason given for his demon s actions it s almost like it has allied itself with Pelletier, which makes no sense.Jean s reasons for the actions he took in the secret revealed at the wedding also make [...]
At some point when I first started this series, I caught a glimpse of a review stating Adrien and Nicolas had their HFN at the end of book 2 so I wasn t too stressed as I read all the twists and turns Boy, what an understatement that review was While I loved this book, the world Shira created, and the complexity and richness of the plot, I wouldn t call that a HFN I have a strong desire to send Shira that SNL clip of dude screaming, FIX IT Lol I ve fallen in love with these characters Watching A [...]
Rating 4 stars out of 5For the full review, visit wp p220KL 506From that review After the death and destruction of Blood and Rain Blood 1 , I was hoping for some resolution to some of the loose ends and ever expanding plot threads but I should have known better as Blood and Ghosts is the middle story of Shira Anthony s Blood Trilogy This book only ups the drama, danger, and multiple timelines these characters seem to exist in And therein lies this story s strengths and weaknesses For reviews, a [...]
Complex plot, very intriguing Can t wait to read the third and last book of the series
One heck of a roller coaster and I loved every minute Definitely a must read series
This book was quite a ride A bit bumpy, a bit winded at times, but It came into the station as promised While I m not truly satisfied with the ending it felt rushed and incomplete, I will hold judgment until I read book three in the series Four Stars.
3.5 heart review by VickiBlood and Ghosts continues the story of Nicolas the ancient vampire, and Adrien the vampire hunter immortal We met the two of them in Blood and Rain, which was split between Nicolas and Adrien, and Francois and Charles One of my complaints about the first book was the sharing of page space between the two couples, so I was happy to see the focus shift to just one couple Another issue I had was the difficult to follow plot Unfortunately that didn t change in this book Whi [...]
There are certain elements in this series I find slightly convoluted the thing with exploring many different timelines is that you end up somehow losing a sense of contact with the characters and end up with a permanent now what Personally I don t like the main characters that much For all his years, Adrian s like a grappling teenager dealing with his hormones and the injustices of the world and though Nicholas shows some spine, his goody two shoes personality is at times too much He was shelter [...]
I didn t like this one as much as the firstere was just too much going on The time travel adds a lot of confusion and unnecessary conflict in my opinion I would have preferred if Shira Anthony would have left out any time travel and would have just left the plot as Adrien trying to find Nicolas for a hundred years and needing to defeat Pelletier The time travel and futuristic changes are just too much for meI ll still read the next book but only because I want to know how it ends.3 Stars
Incredibly well written story however I got confused with the time jumps and the results thereof I m not sure how they, Adrien and Nicholas, got to the end of Blood and Ghosts and how that came about Was I not paying enough attention I thought I was I don t know that I would have wanted a run down of how the time jumps changed the future however a little info wouldn t have been remise I am going to reading the next installment hopeful that will shed light.
I had to write down reminders to figure out which timeline and what was happening.
