Overview

Kagen Silivasi is a powerful, ancient vampire with a unique gift for healing – he is also a son, a brother, and a loner who has survived unspeakable tragedy and loss: Beneath his handsome, well-mannered exterior lies an alter ego consumed by rage and an overwhelming impulse to “kill them all…”

Arielle Nightsong is a brave human, a rebel spirit, and an accomplished healer in her own right. Born into a harsh world of violence, cruelty, and danger, she was enslaved at the age of ten and given as a gift to the most depraved being in Mhier – the infamous king of the lycans. If not for her enduring friendship with a captive vampire, she might not have survived to escape the slave encampment…or to discover her mysterious role in an ancient Blood Curse.

When Kagen and his brothers voyage into Mhier in search of their long lost father, it will take more than stealth and cunning to get out alive: Secrets will be revealed; loyalties will be tested; and an indomitable spirit will fracture beneath the weight of an impossible choice.

BLOOD FATHER ~ where destiny and duty collide.

Meet the Author

Tessa Dawn grew up in Colorado where she developed a deep affinity for the Rocky Mountains. After graduating with a degree in psychology, she worked for several years in criminal justice and mental health before returning to get her Master’s Degree in Nonprofit Management.

Tessa began writing as a child and composed her first full-length novel at the age of eleven. By the time she graduated high-school, she had a banker’s box full of short-stories and novels. Since then, she has published works as diverse as poetry, greeting cards, work books for kids with autism, and academic curricula. The Blood Curse Series marks her long-desired return to her creative-writing roots and her first foray into the Dark Fantasy world of vampire fiction.

Tessa currently splits her time between the Colorado suburbs and mountains with her husband, two children, and “one very crazy cat.” She hopes to one day move to the country where she can own horses and what she considers “the most beautiful creature ever created” -- a German Shepherd.

Writing is her bliss.

    I am in awe of Tessa Dawns writing skills. She is a masterful story teller. A Bard or Seanache or Raconteur would easily fit Author Tessa Dawn.

    This Dark Fantasy book is so well written it leaves the reader in a Jumble Of Feelings. Thoughts all woven together. Feeling so overwhelmed and lost as the story is done. You have no idea what to do, say, think, feel.
    So here I am the day after finishing this book, and all I want to do is re-read this wonderful story. Yet trying to write a review. Expressing myself, trying to put the words together as to make a coherent review.
    Yet I am stumped. I am not an Author, I don't know how to put words together so that they make you feel such strong emotions as to why you should get this book or start this series. I can only try as a reader to get all this across.

    I came across this Author and Book 1 when it was first published. This was so not my usual genre. I was thinking okay another Vampire Book. I will give it a try as it sounded different, from such an overly populated subject.
    Was I ever glad I did! Despite the very graphic scenes I was hooked. I will tell you this I turned on every light in the house , made sure all doors and windows were locked. Didn't go out after dark for a very long time!!

    Book 2 came out. I had liked her Author Page and clicked on release notice, as well as liked her on Goodreads. I was in awe, this author was not a 1 hit wonder. Her characters were so well rounded, the plots so well laid out, and all that hotness from the males!! The women were strong & independent. Not the wishy washy insecure females that so many others seem to write about. You will need a strong constitution, to read these books. Very Graphic in all ways, not for anyone just wanting a Love Story, G or PG or R. Rating.
    I became a devote Tessa Dawn follower. As each of her books came out I was right there in front of the line!

    Now we are at Book 6 "Blood Father" in the Blood Curse Series.
    There are so many reviews giving you everything about this book.
    I can not be one of them. This book is a roller-coaster of emotions of epic proportions. See beginning of review, I wrote that, right after reading this book. If you are looking for a story that will take you in and not let you go till finished the story, this is not this book for you. "Wait,What, Why??" This story stays with you even after you have read it. If you are going to read it till bedtime, you will dream about this book and all the characters. Waving hands in air wildly!!

    To bring this review full circle. A Master Story Teller. A different take on Vampires, Hot Males, Strong Women. Plots so amazing that they stay with you long after you finish reading the book. I Highly Recommend this Book, "Blood Father"

    Blood Father is the epic story of the Blood Curse Series. 480 years have gone by since the Silvasi brothers experienced tragedy like no other, losing both their beloved parents to the Lycans, the vampires biggest enemies. Not until Saber enters the house of Jadon does the most important information the SIlvasi brothers will ever hear come to light, that their father was taken prisoner by the Lycans 480 years ago…Coming together for the most epic mission in their lives, the Silvasi brothers must muster the strength and courage to try to rescue their father. Filled with chaos, emotion, love, and of course a blood moon, Blood father takes you into the soul of Kagen, the master healer who has been a mystery to us all, the bond of a family, giving you a much needed in-depth look at the dynamics of the Silvasi brothers connection, and into the life of a slave turned warrior, a woman whose courage and heart has stolen the love of a father she never thought she could have. Tessa Dawn once again straps you into an emotional rollercoaster, taking you loop for loop through heart ache, pain, fear, and joy that could only be deserving of the purest souls. This page turning novel will have you wanting to laugh, cry, and even put the book down, which I had to do countless times, just to remember to breathe while riding along with the Silvasi borthes through the most critical, dangerous, and rewarding mission of their lives.

    Little did I know there was nothing that could've prepared me fo

    Little did I know there was nothing that could've prepared me for this story. I've waited with anticipation for this book since the moment I met Kagen Silivasi in Blood Destiny. I felt a connection to him and as the series progressed so did that connection. So when the moment came that we found out just what changed Kagen's life the breath was knocked out of me. I felt the crack in my heart and yelled at the words on the page as I cried. I felt every emotion play out as I read through the pages of Blood Father, the intense hatred, the overwhelming fear of loss and the soul lifting feelings of love. This book has it all. As anyone that has journeyed through the pages of Dark Moon Vale you know these stories are not for the faint of heart, Blood Father is definitely no exception to that. It's dark, violent, gut-wrenching and intense. But, as only Tessa can do, she weaves humor and light through those dark times too. So much so I found myself laughing out loud while shaking my head. And there is a scene that is one of the most poignantly beautiful moments I have ever read on a page. To say the story and author are brilliant doesn't really do either justice in my opinion. From the credits to the very last word I was 100% invested, yes, it really is that good.

    There are many amazing reviews that tell you the story, give you a synopsis of the plot and characters, I can't write that kind of review, I truly believe that you as the reader should experience this book (and the entire series) for yourself. Tessa Dawn is such an incredibly gifted story teller you will not want to leave Dark Moon Vale.

    Did it meet my expectations after waiting for so long ?, Not only did it meet my expectations, Blood Father blew them out of the water. I knew it would mean something to me to read this book, in the end it meant everything. Thank you Tessa for giving me one of the best books I have ever read.

    Blood Father Book #6 of Tessa Dawn¿s fabulous Blood Curse series

    Blood Father Book #6 of Tessa Dawn’s fabulous Blood Curse series

    This was the most anticipated book release. What did it mean “Blood Father”, and the one line in this epic read “May the rivers run crimson with their blood” literally set the entire stage for this book. This one line when I read it in a teaser gave me the goose bumps and stole my breath. I could only imagine what it meant.

    This read is Kagen Silvasi and Arielle Nightsong’s book. But there is a little surprise with their story. A lot was explained or revealed and the puzzle pieces fell into place.

    When Blood Father begins it’s with the Silvasi brothers gathering for a meeting called by Saber Alexiares and his destined one Vanya Demir. You will remember Saber from Blood Redemption. Raised as Saber Alexiares of the House of Jaeger “The Dark Ones.” Born Sabino Dzuna of the House of Jadon and taken from his parents as a newborn, has been trying to redeem himself and adjust to the House of Jadon as best he can. So when he meets with the Silvasi brothers it’s to give them a piece of information he remembers while he was in the House of Jaeger. This only came to fruition when Vanya was telling Saber of her dream about a dragon that burns her but she can’t stay away. She feels in her dream and I quote “he is guarding something so precious, so valuable to the house of Jadon. A Treasure. One that had to be returned to the people” unquote. Saber tells the Silvasi’s about a ledger he had been keeping of the Dark Ones taken by the Lycanthrope and were presumed dead. He also told them of another dimension where the Lycan lived. A realm parallel to theirs. In a footnote of one of the entries it mentioned a name of a vampire, a slave still living in Mhier. So when Saber told them it was their father Keitaro Silvasi’s name he read, the information he revealed was earth shattering and puts the brothers in an emotional tailspin not to mention just plain shock. For 480 years the Silvasi’s assumed their father dead and to hear he could still be alive shook them to their core.

    And so the tale begins. Arielle Nightsong a Rebel Warrior/healer an escaped slave from the throngs of an evil, wicked, sadistic King Thane who was totally obsessed with the fiery redhead and vowed to make her his wife and her life a living hell. How she would sneak back into the King’s territory to the slave hut where Keitaro Silvasi was kept, drugged and starved to clean him up and use her herbs to heal him the best she could after he fought in the arena. She was the daughter of his heart, and he the father of her heart. To Nachari researching and using his magic to open a portal to Mhier to rescue their father. To the Blood Moon and celestial constellation Aurgia the Charioteer, Kagen Silvasi’s ruling blood moon that appeared after the Silvasi’s had entered the portal into the realm of Mhier, and Napolean trying to telepathically contact Kagen to no avail. To the undeniable attraction and protectiveness Kagen has towards Arielle. She is his destined one but in Mhier the mark would not show up confusing him. To the trigger that takes Kagen back in his mind to the horrible night he saw his father taken by the Lycan and the series of events that followed. This was really tough to read but you finally understood what was going on with Kagen. Blood Curse is a must have/must read series and you really want to read the previous stories before you dive into Blood Father. You will not be disappointed. Each read is a page turner and a can’t put down book. Blood Father I believe is my new favorite of the Blood Curse series and I totally fell in love with Kagen. On a side note when will Saber put on his ring, or will he.

    Tessa has done it again. This book is an excellent addition to the Blood Curse series. As soon as I started
    reading I couldnt put this book down. This series just consumes me while reading. I was aniticipating Kagens story and couldnt wait to see who his destiny was. I think she picked the perfect destiny for him. I think Kagen and Arielle are a perfect match and I enjoyed watching thier story unfold. At times I found myself
    laughing and crying. I couldnt stop laughing about Narcarhi and the spiders, in fact i still find myself
    giggling. I never thought we would see the day when thier father returned. The end of this book was the most
    touching I have probably ever read. What a fantastic book and I cant wait to see whats next. If you have read
    all the others, make sure you pick up this one as well. you defintley will not be dissapo

    REVIEW: TESSA DAWN'S BLOOD FATHER (BLOOD CURSE SERIES,#6)

    Rating: 5 Hearts

    OMG! What an Emotional Rollercoaster Ride! I went from laughing, to crying, to rooting for their desired outcome to happen, and then just when I thought I had my emotions in check, I went through them again and again. I almost devoured this sixth installment in one sitting. I could not put it down.

    Miss Dawn has an extremely talented gift for writing, when she puts pen to paper, it turns out to be a well wriiten, dark adventure of intensity that will leave you breathless and wanting more. I LOVE THIS SERIES!!

    The characters are so well developed that I have fallen for them ALL hook, line, and sinker. They are not your sparkly vampires either. Their back stories are written with raw emotion, I like that in a book, it grabbed me from page one and kept me riveted to wherever I was sitting.

    The world? WOW! Dark and Fantastical, Vampiric in nature, and full twists and turns that will blow your mind as well as touch your heart.

    If you Love an action-packed, steamy, dark fantasy, vampiric paranormal romance, look no further, this series has it all.

    Book 1 - Blood Destiny
    Book 2 - Blood Awakening
    Book 3 - Blood Possession
    Book 4 - Blood Shadows
    Book 5 - Blood Redemption
    Book 6 - Blood Father

    Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    This review is from: Blood Father (Blood Curse Series Book 6) (Kindle Edition)

    Spoilers-
    Wow I love this series! Even through all the battles, fighting, tension, hardships and sorrow of this series I still come away in awe of Tessa's writing! It speaks to me somewhere below the surface and deep into my heart! I feel the emotions and best of all the feelings of love of family. Honor and duty!! I connect with it somehow!
    For years I have loved Nathaniel but, I believe he will have to step aside now that we have had Kagen's story! Wow- sweet and charming, caring, a healer, freed from his demons now he and Rielle will be able to heal each other. Even in all the misery he found it in his heart to hold and comfort Rielle to bring her a small amount of peace. I love the fact that she will be able to acquire all his knowledge and not have to stress over being thrown into this realm in present day.
    They were able to find answers to her demons and bring the healing to the now, by naming their baby after a brother and a father!
    I was not so freaked out this time by the demon child having to be sacrificed... somehow I knew it was all going to work out.
    Arielle faced all these new challenges with a brave, warriors heart and now has the comfort of family and home.
    I believe she has finally come home!!!!!! I cant wait to hear more about her and their father, of there struggles and all that they overcome as family, together! Both free to heal and move on in love!
    Tessa you Nailed it!
    You are one of three of my top, favorite authors of all time!
    Thank you for you stories and Vampires that BITE!
    Cant wait for the next installment.......

    I wasn't sure how I'd like the new twist the series, a new dimension? Being a die hard Tessa Dawn reader I had to see where she was going with this. I am soooo glad I did! The book was perfect. Tessa treats us to an inside to the Silivasi Brothers we had yet to see as they venture into the Mhier to find their lost father, learning Kagen's deep dark secret along the way.
    If you have not read this series you are seriously missing out!!! I could read these books over and over and never get tired of the Silivasi Brothers & Dark Moon Vale.

    Blood Father is now officially my favorite book in what has been my favorite series since I picked up Tessas first book Blood Destiny. BLOOD FATHER is filled with so many different emotions it's amazing, you or at least I Laughed, actually cried, I even cringed a bit but most of all I got to read a book that really pulled me in and didn't let me go till the last page and even then you get pulled right back in. I am not going into detail on the story line because I would probably give away the best parts but I will say you see all the Silivasi brothers in action and meet another member of the family .......and you absolutely will not be disappointed, this book ROCKS .....as always Tessa AWESOME BOOK I WANT MORE PLEASE.

    I LOVE all of Tessa Dawn's books. One of the main reasons is for her villains. There is no kinda bad bad guy in her books. Then, when I saw there was a new group of bad for this book, not gonna lie, I was scared. I adore the house of Jaegar. Mainly Salvatore. I mean I knew the book was going to be awesome because Tessa Dawn wrote it. Her style of writing is always, always awesome. Right away I was drawn back into the world of the house of Jadon. And boy, what a wonderful, sometimes heartbreaking place to be. This book honestly had everything you could want, and it totally surpassed my expectations. Also, can I finally say, werewolves were awful in this book!! I hate werewolves. This was perfect!! It made up for lacking the Nistors. If you're looking for a nice love story, you've come to the wrong series. But if you're looking for a dark, gritty, well written journey, this is the series to read.
