I love reading/listening to series which is why I brought this book hoping I had found a new one. There are so many good reviews but I not sure if I will be buying more in the series.
At the start of the book we are introduced to Jocelyn Levi who is an agent for Homeland Security. She must have been very poorly trained as she doesn't seem to fight back and she has very little backbone. There is a scene where is is rescuing a child, where I wanted to shout ' don't be a wimp what about using your training'.
She cries too much for my liking - I need my heroines to be assertive and strong not ineffectual and weepie.
This book has yet another explanation as to how Vampires were created and the overall story line is quite strong.
The narrator Eric Dove does a very good job a good variation in tone and accent. I might lookup to see what else he has narrated.
Considering the next book in the series which I see is 'Blood Awakening'. It may be wrong to let one character stop me from read more in the series when she is likely to be just a background character in Blood Awakening.
I bought this thinking I would listen to the series . I won't be !
The heroine is a highly trained law enforcement officer but spends all her time making ' poor' decisions , regretting them( with paragraphs of angst ) and then needing rescuing ... Repeatedly.
A very frustrating book I had to listen to the end but it was a struggle .
What did you love best about Blood Destiny: Blood Curse Series book 1?
I really like the new twist on how the Vampires with the "Blood Curse" and how you were just drawn into the story and not just Jocelyn and Nathaniels story but ALL of Dark Moon Vale....Blood Destiny opened a whole new world of Dark Fantasy to me....LOVED IT!
What other book might you compare Blood Destiny: Blood Curse Series book 1 to and why?
If I had to I would compare it to Dark Prince by Ms Feehan, but Blood Destiny is more intense, raw, passionate ..... more story less fluff..
Which scene was your favorite?
so many....so so many...ok, when they go after Jocelyn .......I cant say more because I will give way to much away...but I like the friend of my enemy part....AND I have to say Braden comes thru in a big way!
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
"The Blood Curse" The True Vampire, Good & Evil ( i leave the writing to the experts like Tessa Dawn..)....
Any additional comments?
Reading this book was Great but Listening to Eric Dove Telling the Story was AMAZING.....

i so love this series, Blood Destiny is about Jocelyn and Nathaniel and their Blood Moon and having to do their part to fulfill the Blood Curse! this book is gripping and intense, Dark and just downright fun!!! The Narrator does an awesome job on this book! His voice is sexy and I love the way he changes pitches to do different characters!! I would recommend this to anyone who loves their vampires with a little bite!!!!! I can't wait to hear the rest of them on Audio!!!
