Holy smokes what a ride that was Loved Julien and also loved Rebecca The book starts off with a bang and sucks you in immediately Although it was tough at times I enjoyed seeing the story of Lucien and Rebecca unfold Both having experienced such evil and pain during their lives they both seemed to find a way to beat their demons together Was thrilled to see Nachari oh how I love that wizard and several other of our favorite characters Can t wait to read the next one, crossing fingers it won t be too. This one has non empathetic me shedding tears or it might have been low blood sugar Truly one of the best in this awesome dark vampire series. I just finished this story and I am so disappointed Don t get me wrong, I loved this book just as much as all of the others in the series I am disappointed because now I have to wait for the next one The great thing about discovering an amazing author is that you get to binge read the whole series without waiting in between, but then the high wears off when you get to the end and you want the next book but it s not out yet I can honestly say Tessa Dawn is one of my favorite authors in this genre I love that every single book had it s own unique story I also love that she is not afraid to go down a dark path She doesn t write a wimpy vampire. Do you want to know the first time our hero and heroine met She on her free day doing door to door walk to ask donation for her charity work, when she arrived on hero s house front door, no one answer her knock but the door open and lovely music play inside.So, of course she invited herself and there he is, sat down on the sofa, one hand wet with blood, the other hand holding a glass of whiskey, close to his feet unconscious female lie down on the floor with bleeding neck.Oh, he high on heroin Bloody vampire addicted to heroin Gosh And he won t let his little mouse get away from himBut you know what After I read Julien s life story, I love him than Saber This series just getting better and better. The good outweighed the bad..Overall, this was a really good addition to the Blood Curse series BUT I m so tired of the author using the word baby, baby girl, or babe It s like she gives the heroine a name then forgets all about it The baby word was used 47 times Really And when that wasn t enough he called her little mouse 22 times And Angel 33 times Her name was REBECCA, for pete s sake I just hate that And let s talk about Julian s heroin use Yuck I know he couldn t get addicted to it but the fact that he ran for it every time the sounds got too bad in his head was pretty disgusting, IMO Seeing the hero stoned out of his mind was not all that attractive.Now that I m done with my rant let s get down to it It was soooo easy to hate Julien s twin brother Ian What an evil bastard he was, but he got all that he deserved As to Rebecca s stalker, Trevor, of 5 years Well, what Julien did to him was pretty gross And the end of the book was what I was waiting for ALL the abused women that Rebecca worked with, all the husbands, boyfriends and stalkers were taken care of by Saxson and Nachari So, that was nice.And speaking of Nachari he s always been my favorite, the Master Wizard I did like the others, too Napolean, Ramsey, Braden, Saxson, Saber, and Santos Great secondary characters There was one sex scene in this book It wasn t the usual kind but it fit with the story There was no swearing to speak of, which I still find strange in a vamp book.As to the narration Eric Dove is fantastic His male and female voices and emotions are awesome AND his singing is wonderful, too. Wow Another fantastic story in the series Fantastic Narration by Eric Dove audible review He sings again Loved it If you haven t read listened to this series you are missing out They are all fantastic Absolutely love this series and the world building and characters.Loved Julien he was big, strong, handsome and just cool I really liked his Destiny, Rebecca too They made a great couple She was strong and sick and tired of being a victim of a stalker Enter Julien right on time They did have some good chemistry together There was attraction but really not much sex written, but this story isn t about that So it was perfect The story line and plot was great Loved that Julien had some demons he had to deal with from his back story Rebecca had a good back story too There is so much wonderful dialogue throughout the entire book The constant action and things happening is fantastic These stories are NOT full of filler nonsense and I love that Always look forward to some great battles in these stories too.As for the narration, IT WAS AMAZING And OMG Eric Dove s singing is so great He does such a wonderful job as a narrator, all the women sound like women His reading voice is great and he reads with emotion which includes singing Nice addition to the series I liked both Julien and Rebecca I liked Julien s background story but wish there was of something interaction, etc with Ian and Julien but it was still good Lots of action I really liked how Julien and Rebecca s story unfolded.Rebecca Only pet peeve with her and some of the other female characters in the series is that she fell real quick into calling him by Warrior It is a term I can easily see Ciopori Vanya also using When Rebecca used the term my brain automatically wanted to Historicalize the book long fancy dress, upper class manors, using titles, etc Plus I felt it just didn t go with a woman raised in the 21st century With that said I am super nervous where Tessa is going to go with the next book I read the teaser and not sure what to think about it, not particularly fond of books that have betrayal like themes But we shall see because I most definitely am going to read it. Rating5 out of 5 Hearts OMG What a Raw, Emotional Rollercoaster Ride This eighth installment of Tessa Dawn s Blood Curse Series is Absolute Genius.The world is dark, psychologically thrilling, mysterious, horrifying, and full of angst, betrayal, lust, and danger With picturesque, heartpounding turns and insane twists, this installment brought tears to my eyes, giggles to my soul, and also touched me deep inside on an, I can relate level.The characters OMG Julien is a force to be reckoned with He is so messed up inside I found myself drawn to him even as the story unfolded before my eyes Rebecca is a stong character in her own right She has had her own demons to battle then enter Julien Mind blowing This is a story of Good vs Evil that grabbed me at Hello and kept me there dispite life s interruptions until I finished it I Love that in a book If you like vampires who bite then check out this series It does not disappoint.
