This one is a keeper…HIGHLY RECOMMENDED for fans of paranormal romances.
Anyone who has yet to experience (read) the Sons of Navarus series by Gabrielle is missing out. I have read so many paranormal vampire romance novels that nothing seems to shock me anymore. However, this author’s entire writing style is distinctive. She does not just toss in a couple of interesting new concepts with a well-worn plot and call it original. She has an unsurpassed ability to take a decent plot twist and manipulate it quite skillfully – generating revelations that are impossible to see coming. As a reader, I thought, “Where does she come up with the stuff?” This entire book from page one, until the epilogue, is an emotional funhouse. I cannot say this is my favorite installment (because it would be easier to pick a favorite donut); each offers something superbly special and the series would not be the same with even a missing chapter. Noele is my preferred type of female protagonist; she is independent, strong, and loyal. Also, the author did an incredible job of pulling the secondary characters into the spotlight without shadowing neither Noele nor Ramiel.

Well written and emotional: BLOOD PROPHECY is the fourth installment in Gabrielle Bisset's Sons of Navarus paranormal series that furthers the storyline surrounding the Prophecy of Idolas, the hunt for the Key, and the battle between the Sons of Navarus and the Archons. Blood Prophecy is Ramiel and Noele's story but it also encompasses plenty of background information and history as well as a little more about Thane.
As this is Ramiel's story, we are privy to his early years as a Visigoth during the Roman uprisings, viewed through dream sequences, memory and recollections. We learn that his childhood was not all roses and sunshine. And Thane's early years as a nobleman in the English countryside is only matched by Ramiel's visions of Tudor England through the eyes of television and movies.
Gabrielle Bisset's vampires are both emotional and colorful. Ancient vampires, each with a history and story, are pulled together to prevent the end of their species at the hands of the Sons of Navarus nemesis-the Archons. But true to form, the evil Archons always seem to be one step ahead of the Sons. As the Prophecy of Idolas is slowly deciphered, the Sons attempt to discover and locate the `who and why' of the ancient scripts. Fate has a way of grinding reality to a halt when betrayal and hatred; love and loss; faith and hope pull the Sons together in an attempt to save one of their own-but they may be too late.
There is a secondary storyline running throughout the series: Vasilije, as the self-appointed head of the Sons of Navrus, remains a vampire of questionable integrity as it pertains to the vampires he sires and Sasa (the woman he claims to love) in particular. The novella THE DEEPEST CUT furthers Sasa, Vasilije and Thane's storyline (released December 2012) and the continued animosity between these three is addressed again in Blood Prophecy. Betrayal, heartbreak and the disillusion of a relationship are difficult but probably inevitable, although one that I hope will see a different resolution in the future.
Gabrielle Bisset is not afraid to address controversy in her storylines: death, betrayal, unrequited love, addiction and infidelity are all part of the reality of vampire life. Her heroes and heroines are not perfect; they are fallible and broken and, because they were all human in a previous life, their troubled emotions and characterstics still retain some definite human qualities. Blood Prophecy is a well-written, detailed and emotional storyline that fans of the series will definitely not want to miss. Gabrielle Bisset takes the vampire genre and puts a twist on the storyline that is all her own.

Another fantastic book by Gabrielle Bisset. I think this one is my favorite by far and maybe that is because it had more of my favorite character Thane than any of the rest of the books. I laughed and I cried and even got mad at some of the characters but I honestly believe if you can not feel emotions of the story what good is the story.....Well done again Ms. Bisset!Was this review helpful?
