    I am so sad to have read the last page of "Blood Vow"

    I am so sad to have read the last page of "Blood Vow" because now I know it is has officially ended the trilogy of Falon, Lucian, and Rafe.  I have fallen in love with this trilogy since the moment I read the first page of "Blood Law".  I am saddened that it has ended, but now I am intrigued even more with the last page of "Blood Vow".
    Karin Tabke, you know how to write a book that makes my emotions go haywire...I went from about to cry, to smiling, to squirming in my seat (or actually bed), to about to go through the book and knock some sense into Rafe and Lucien's heads...and to back to ecstatic again.  I LOVE YOUR WRITING!!
    I also must say I STILL am in LOVE with Lucien!!!
    "Blood Vow" picks up where "Bloodright" left off.  Falon has been taken by Fenrir, who is helping the Slayers kill off the Lycans.  The Blood Moon Rising is coming and Fenrir wants Falon on his side and as his.  She of course knows that Lucien and Rafe will come for her.
    Falon finds out the truth when she is with Fenrir and that she has lycan blood and slayer blood in her as well.  She finds out who her father is and she is determined to not tell Lucien and Rafe because it will break their heart and they will forced to kill her since they vowed to take revenge on their parents.
    When Lucien and Rafe rescue Falon...Falon has terms that both the alphas have difficulty coming to terms with.  She wants both of them...not just one of them.
    Lucien and Rafe must decide if they can handle sharing Falon with each other, as well as prepare their packs of the fight that is coming to them.  Fenrir wants war and wants the Lycans dead for what they did to them hundreds of years ago. It is up to the power of three to kill Fenrir...but Falon knows the truth on what is supposed to happen and how to kill Fenrir...but she is not ready to spill her secret.
    Oh boy...."Blood Vow" has a lot going on and I definitely do not want to spoil this book for anyone who has read the other two books and is waiting to read this one.  Or for the readers who are wanting to read the trilogy and haven't.
    This book opened up a huge secret and it definitely put Falon in a bind.  When the truth did come out...I could have beat the crap out of the two alphas.  GRRR!!
    Although, in the end one of them comes to terms before the other.  Can you say TRUE LOVE?!  =)  I knew he would in the end.
    Rafe was a complete jerk in this book and I hated him for certain things he did.  I would have rather Falon fallen for one of the characters, but I could see why she wanted both.  She made them both stronger Alphas and they also helped her.
    I swear every chapter left me hanging and maybe move onto the other chapter to find out what happened next.
    I love how Karin switches back and forth to all 3 characters so we know what is going on inside their heads.  (LOVE her writing style)
    Falon has been one of the FAVE strong female characters throughout all 3 books.  Karin definitely wrote the perfect character to carry the trilogy.  Falon grew so much in each book and this book, she proved how strong she is and how stronger she could be compared to Rafe and Lucien.
    Also....the steamy threesomes between these characters were definitely HOT!  You will take cold showers after each one, which is saying a lot since there were many.  Oh my GOODNESS!  =)
    Falon does have her happily ever after  in this book and so do the two male characters who have stolen her heart, as well as mine.
    This trilogy will be a re-read in the very near future because I know I will miss the characters a lot.
    If you have not read this trilogy yet, what are you waiting for.
    If you love the paranormal romance genre with erotic elements...and well menage trois elements as well....READ this book...but first read the other two...otherwise you will miss out on some fabulous books.
    Karin Tabke has closed out an amazing trilogy that definitely will be missed....but in the end, she leaves us asking ourselves...is that truly the ending?  Darn you, Karin!  =)  Much love to a fabulous Author who knows how to make us fall in love with her characters and the world she has created.
    I love how she came up with this trilogy and I definitely look forward to her future books.  She has a fan for life.  =)

    Definitely 5 stars.....

    So i finally finished this last book in Tabke's series and i'll be honest that i was a little apprehensive at first because i want Falon to just choose one of the brothers already! And as much as i tried to dislike Raphael, he worked right back into my heart with Lucien.
    There were a few times when Falon got a tad annoying with all her drama and blah, blah. But it was soon overcome by the suspensfulness of the book.
    And i was a little iffy about the whole threesome theme, but the book probably would have suffered greatly if it weren't incorporated.
    I definitey recommend though. It was a fantastic heartwarming and creatively sad ending.

    Glad it's over

    Since the first book I have always been batting for team Rafe. In the second book I wanted to pull my hair out over bad boy Lucians pity party and Now in the final book I am supposed to believe that a female can dictate a m/f/m relationship uggh. I would recommend the triology for the story premise alone. I must admit I would have preferred in this final installment more story line regarding the rising and the final battle then reading 3/4 of the story focused on a three way. Just my opinion.

    One of my favorites

    A must read. I highly recommend reading Bloodlaw and Bloodright first. Blood Vow is the perfect ending to an impossible situation. This series is one of my favorites.

    Speachless

    Each book in this trilogy just built off the one before it! Emotionally invested from book 1 page 1 until the very last word of this book. Karin is an amazing storyteller, its a special gift to be able to create such a world that when you are reading you actually feel apart of an dnot just like you are reading words on paper. This book starts immediately where book 2 ended (thanks Karin) no rehashing of the previous 2 books just kept going! Obviously all is laid out in the open and destiny plays out, but the things that transpire along the way will thrill you, shock you & even pkeasantly surprise you! Happy reading!

    Good read

    I enjoyed this series very much. I will miss Luciens character ! It was his unconditional love for her that should have made him the # 1 choice :-)

    This review was first posted at Reading Between the Wines!

    It's the conclusion to Falon's journey! While I'm sure we all knew that Falon would end up with both Rafael and Lucien, we did have quite a few factors up in the air. For instance, readers were left off at the end of book two with Falon being kidnapped by the grotesque Fenrir. Not to mention all of the hints dropped about Falon's paternal heritage. And let's not forget the questions about the paternity of her unborn child. Your wait is over readers! Tada! Blood Vow is OUT!

    The book picks up right where you were left off, and kicks into high gear right away. Rafa and Luca are fighting on multiple fronts, all of them leading up to the prophesied war. Everything was pretty fast paced, but for me a little predictable. That being said, it was still a very enjoyable read, and needless to say we finally get our all important HEA! I give it a four wine glass toast, and I'm sure readers will enjoy finally getting their happily ever afters for the heroine and the two brothers.

    There’s plenty of action and a lot of the book felt like a movie to me. Vivid descriptions and dramatic writing definitely set the overall tone for this book. ~ Under the Covers

    In the finale of the Blood Moon Rising trilogy, Karin Tabke wastes no time in getting to the good stuff. BLOOD VOW dives right into the action where BLOODRIGHT left off. Falon discovers something integral about herself in this book – she is the daughter of the Master Slayer who murdered Rafael and Lucien’s parents. This makes her a Lycan and Slayer hybrid, a forbidden mix that is sure to cause the shifter’s hackles to rise. Tempted to tell both Rafa and Lucas of her identity, but afraid that they will shun her, Falon is at a loss of what to do.

    Meanwhile, Rafa and Luca are pitted against each other as they try to take Falon for themselves. Not one to share their woman, both alphas will have to decide if Falon’s desires of having them both together is enough for them to manage. For most of the book, Falon tries to persuade the guys into this threesome relationship. However, it seems that Falon has her work cut out for her because the men are not willing to budge.

    I enjoyed this last installment to the series. There’s plenty of action and a lot of the book felt like a movie to me. Vivid descriptions and dramatic writing definitely set the overall tone for this book. There are even some great “what the hell just happened?” moments that made for a crazy fun reading experience.

    I was most interested in the matter of whom Falon will end up with. In the first two books, Tabke has created a great romance between Falon and both Lucien and Rafael. The choice would be difficult. However, I liked the way the author ended it. It brought a sense of satisfaction in knowing the right thing happened.

    But perhaps the best thing about this series is Falon and her strength. Juggling two, possessive, alpha men is a hardship, yet Falon seems to have the inner strength of a thousand men. The author needed a heroine who could carry this series and I think she accomplished that very well in Falon. Falon is one lucky girl!
