Lissa, the main character, is a reluctant vampire, and I bonded with her immediately, always wanting to see what happened next to her. She has an unusual and wry sense of humor that somehow gets her through all the intriguing things life constantly throws at her. I'm not the usual vampire fan, but the author has such a great skill of world-building with a unique take, that I would come out blinking, thinking vampires did exist. There's a great deal of unpredictable action and a slow building romance that doesn't make for any slow spots in this book. I feel extremely lucky to be one of the early discoverers of this prolific author on the rise!

Lissa's husband had just died, and she decided to go to a bar and get drunk. Since she never drank, it didn't take her much. She noticed the two men who came in, of course, since one wanted to buy her a drink, but she refused and after her 4th glass of wine she went out to her car. That's when it happened - as it turned out, the men were vampires and they had decided to turn her and see how long it took her to rise. It was a game to them - the wager was £ 1,000,000 that she would rise within 9 days. Of course, they would then have to kill her, because otherwise they'd have to take her in and take care of her and they had no intention of doing that. Once Lissa realizes that she is probably going to die at the hands of the vampires, she flees and this book - "Blood Wager" - is about how she survives the first few months as a vampire. There are certainly some plot holes - how, for example, did Lissa suddenly just know she was a vampire? But these certainly do not detract from the overall story, which is very well written, flows smoothly and has a nice, tight plot. The characters are all well-defined and interesting and I enjoyed reading it very much. In fact, I loved "Blood Wager" so much that I purchased the next two books in the series, "Blood Passage" and "Blood Sense." Connie Suttle plans 9 books in the series (at this time) with the 4th book - "Blood Domination" - due out October 15, 2011 and the 5th - "Blood Royal" - due November 15, 2011. I suggest that those who enjoy a good vampire novel check out Suttle's books - they are very enjoyable!

If the scale could reach 1,000 that would be my rating! From the start I was captivated. This author has the ability to make you feel like you are a part of what is happening to each and every character. The depth of emotion that you feel is something that I can’t remember experiencing in a long time. Very few authors have the talent to paint you a picture of the environment in which they have placed their characters and actually make you visualize it in your mind. I don’t know when I have felt so many different emotions for so many different characters! I also have to say that Connie Suttle’s writing is a true example of my favorite type of writing; kind of a “ Heinz 57” if you will! Action, paranormal, adventure, thriller, mystery, sci-fi, a bit for the teen reader, romance,horror and the all important humor. I will never deny that my (author) first love is and always will be the Great Stephen King, however I love the written word in many genres; I have added a new author to my family of favorites! Please write more! I for one will be happy to have your work on my book shelf and in my e-book collection!

Great fresh look into vamps and werewolves. Lissa seems like she will be strong, but I can't help thinking the men around her abuse her terribly.

I thought this series was one of the best i've read. I have all eight books and could not stop reading them. The characters were well written and the story flowed smoothly. I felt for lissa and all she went thru. Would recommend this series to anyone.

This is the most unusual book I've read in a long time, in a very good way. It grabs you at the begining and you think you're reading another vampire book. Then it changes to include warewolfs, ok, I like them too. From there it goes to all sorts of supernatural beings with different skills and powers, involving Lissa in all of the exciting travel, back and forth in time. Truly one of the best written books I've had the pleasure of reading. Highly recommend it to people with a little imagination and want to open your mind to different beings living together in a caotic harmony. Connie Suttle you rock.

I just finished with the 5th book - reading a book a day, they were that good. The story is great and I really like Lissa and hope the story doesn't go where it sounds like it is going.

I am so thankful that I found this series when there were already 5 books available. The wait might have killed me. The characters are wonderfully full and complex. The dialogue believable and engaging. The storyline gets complicated at times but if you are used to scifi/fantasy in addition to your paranormal romance - this will work for you. I have laughed out loud, have had to grab the tissues and have gotten very little done for several days because of these books. I can't wait for more!
