Overview

Blood Life is a vampire/witch thriller full of blood, magic, love, violence, and sex. The witches and vampires of the fictional world of the Spectrum have united and created a race of half-breeds called the Combined. These are very powerful entities, but their race has been threatened by a rogue vampire with very old, powerful blood named Lokee, son of the Great Witch, Devendra. This story is about letting Fate play out, but in all its turmoil, trying to save one woman who will be the key to saving the Combined.

Can the Combined's strongest adversary form an army to defeat them, or will the power of three keep the race on top? Centered around the lives of four integral characters, Blood Life is a fresh and unique paranormal adventure. Meet Devendra, a powerful witch descended from one of the first lineages; Lokee, her son and worst enemy; Roman, her friend and companion; and Alethea, the key to it all...

I stalked Gianna Perada during her blog tour because I fell in love with the story and reviews. There was just something about the storyline that resonated with me. Many times a story sounds interesting, but there are few times that a story "speaks" to me. This was one of the rare ones that spoke to me. Thankfully my tenacity paid off; I won a copy of the book, and I can say it did not disappoint! This is a very dark love story spread out over the centuries. There are moments of triumph, moments of despair and moments of horror. Ms. Perada put her own unique twist on vampires and witches and told a story that was original and far from other novels with similar characters. Not everything is what it seems in this book and the ending just may shock you! Is there a sequel in the works? If so, I would buy it!

A refreshing take of vampires more in the realm of older Anne Rice than any of the modern day accounts. She's thrown in witches for good measure, and lots of intensity. I could not put this book down! I hope there will be more stories from the Spectrum!

ok kids, this is going to be an on-the-fence review. Let me say that I didn’t love the book, but I didn’t dislike the book either. So I’m going to try something a little different in my reviewing process for this one. I know I’ve said before I don’t like to give bad reviews-not that this is a BAD review, just not GREAT review either. But I would feel very wrong not to give a review if I have promised one-I KEEP MY PROMISES First, I really liked: -I really like how the story started back when, with kings and queens and princesses and the ruling culture of bloodlines and all those crazy rules. -I really liked that the story progressed to give the background as if it were happening now, it made it seem so much more real. -I really enjoy the characters. Roman, Alexandria, Devendra, even the big meanie King Morgan, and her maid, which I thought was the sweetest -I like that I got to see how things progressed into the NOW quickly, after that traumatic event-sorry no spoilers- it skips years with little snippets so you aren’t dredging through boring time periods. -I really like how Althea and Roman accidentally met, and how things progressed between them -I really like the writing. There is nothing bad to say about the writing style -I really like the prophecies those are so fun. -I REALLY like that big secret from Devendra Second, I didn’t like: -I was a little disappointed in the ending, and I’m not really sure why. -The in between of Roman meeting Althea and then the in between until the big climax was a little boring. I’m not saying it wasn’t well written. I think that because I usually like action type urban fantasy, I wanted maybe some more sword fighting, or fireball throwing, hissy-fit pitching. LOL this is not the author’s fault but my own As you can see, there’s definitely more “likes” than “dislikes”, so I was serious when I said that this wasn’t a bad review. I’m just still on the fence. I am not trying to be difficult, lol but usually I’m more dissapointed in the beginning of the book than the end LOL. I did like how turned out, and the conclusion. I know, it’s hard to explain without give very specifics away, and that’s so spoilery, which would just ruin it for you. SO… my advice it to make your own opinion about it when you read it LOL I know that not everyone likes the same things, so someone may seriously love it, while someone else may not like it at all. I’m the in between *sigh* And I’m sad about this, as I feel like I didn’t do justice to the author who so nicely did all of that work to make this book! So, thank you for writing, and for letting me read this book for review, even if I’m probably one of your non-favorable reviews. I received this book from the author for an honest review.

Love reading new authors! I think this is a wonderful first novel that will launch this author into stardom. Enjoyed the book immensely. I've heard that there is a second and indeed a third novel. Cannot wait! When??
