Before there was a modern-day town called Dark Moon Vale, there was an ancient kingdom nestled in the Transylvanian Alps. Before there was a primordial species called the Vampyr, there was a celestial race begotten of gods and men. Before light battled shadow, the sacrifice became mandatory, or the first Blood Moon adorned the celestial sky...

There was The Curse.

A punishment.

An abomination.

The ultimate act of vengeance.

And it was placed upon a people so corrupted by their thirst for blood and dominion that they awakened the souls of the slain and became the souls of the damned:

Young, beautiful, and in the prime of her life, Jessenia Groza is not ready to die. Yet she has been condemned by Prince Jaegar's men, slated as a sacrifice to the gods.

Timaos Silivasi would gladly risk everything - his power, his privilege, his celestial heart - to save his one true love, but fate has a plan of its own...

For this couple.

For this civilization.

For this lost race of warriors, who will never be the same.

Every legend has a beginning...

About 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 wasn't through the first chapter yet and my emotions were welling up...I have always loved this series and wanted the back story of the curse so badly. I am just astonished once again at Tessa Dawn's ability to make you feel so much for these characters and this world she has created so expertly. I won't post spoilers(because I don't like them) but please, please if you havent read this series, try it. YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED. Dark Fantasy at its absolute best. Characters you feel for and want to follow. A world of Darkness and Light that will touch your very soul. I look for series that can push the limits of my emotions and imagination and have read many but never one like this. Thank you again Tessa for all you have given us with this series. Look forward to the next with bated breath

If you think you know the story of the Blood Curse, trust me, you don’t…   Long before Dark Moon Vale there was a time of death, betrayal, vengeance and a love so strong that not even a brother drenched in madness could quell it.  Nothing will prepare you for the emotional ride Tessa Dawn takes you on. Rich in texture and beauty with equal parts darkness and pain, this tale is not for the weak, it is no fairytale however, there’s beauty in the pain that is reflected through the story.  As with any book written by the incredibly talented Tessa Dawn, when you read the last page you yearn for more.   If Dark Fantasy is what you enjoy, journey back to a time where Kings ruled, brothers divided, no woman was safe and innocence was lost…forever.   Blood Genesis is the prequel to the Blood Curse Series and is a must-have for devoted readers and new readers alike.   Pick it up today, and get ready to experience what it’s like to know the Blood Curse.

If you thought you knew anything about vampires, think again. Tessa Dawn has taken a whole new spin on the supernatural beings, finally providing a story you can get completely lost in. Blood Genesis is full of emotions you couldn't imagine getting from mere words on a page. Throwing you into a time of chaos, it brings love and tragedy to a whole new level. Tessa Dawn is a different kind of author, an author who brings real entertainment and pleasure to the reading world. Taking you on an emotional roller coaster with every turn of the page, you have no choice but to hang onto every word that is taking your emotions into a tailspin. As an avid reader of the Blood Curse Series, i was excited to see the publishing of prequel. Knowing and loving the series, to have an in-depth look of the beginning was more than i could've hoped for. It gave so much excitement and another fabulous look at the talented writing of Tessa Dawn, still throwing her readers for a loop even on a concept we already know. Tessa Dawn has once again revealed her superior skills of bringing a book to life, leaving a reader remembering why they picked up the Blood Curse Series in the first place.

Tessa Dawn is an amazing, talented and very gifted writer/storyteller. I feel as if I know the characters completely--their weaknesses, strengths, flaws, goodness and badness. I am kept on edge the whole time I am reading--and find that I don't want the book to end.Oh my goodness: one moment you are drawn to tears, and then the next you may be laughing or wish you could jump into the story and grab hold of one of the characters. Talk about an emotional roller coaster!! There are scenes that I found myself literally holding my breath--what is going to happen next?? And, just when I think I may have the answer she takes a turn you did not see coming. It's a dark fantasy book that also has many shades of light and good!! How can that be in one book? Well, she manages to do that and more. I am left wanting to read more and more! It is above exceptional.

Wow! Tessa Dawn does it again with this brilliantly written prequel to the Blood Curse Series. Her words so descriptive the story came to life as I was reading. I don't like to leave reviews that give away to much of the story. I will tell you this one has it all even if it is a novella, showing us the beauty and strength in true love. Come see how the curse started and check out the other amazing books in tbe series.

Blood Genesis was an absolute joy to behold. It had every riveting element I require in a book. Both darkness and light shone brilliantly through this wee gem. It answered lots of questions I had pertaining to the Blood Curse series in regards to the Silivasi family history and emotional set up. It is both a stand alone and prequel to the series. I was completely enraptured with Tomasi and Jennesia's heroic love. Their passion outshone the darkest most depraved moments. The ever heart wrenching doomed relationship of Jadon and Jager and the inevitable after math kept me in a sombre reflective mood throughout. Tessa took me to a very primitive dark world where life was very different than that of the Silivasi brothers I grew so enamored with in the Blood Curse Series. This is quite simply a must read.

Blood Genesis a prequel to the Blood Curse series. If you are an avid Blood Curse series reader, then here are all the major pieces to the puzzle. If you have yet to open the first book of the Blood Curse series, Blood Destiny, then you are about to start a journey unlike any other. Within the pages of this novella, Author Tessa Dawn guides you once again, through the tunnels and chambers of such a detailed and intricate story. Tessa has given her readers, as well as newcomers, the key to unlock the hidden truths behind the closed door. The battle of good and evil, the beginning of an underestimated vengeance, the love that will never die and the sacrifices for the greater good. Sit back and enjoy the beginning of a new world, the creation of a lethal species, and a path to the chosen destiny. Happy reading!
