I had the opportunity to read an ARC (Advanced Reader Copy) of THE BLOOD OF OTHERS by C.L. Stegall. Simply put, I consumed the entire novel in one sitting, it was that gripping. While some might raise an eyebrow at another title in this particular sub-genre, these Vampires don't lurk or swoon... they strike. There's a rich lore woven throughout the story, chapters flipping back and forth between the present dangers and flashbacks to the past. We are treated to the tale of how young Paris (a chosen name) rose from runaway child to her position among the High Guard in the secret Vampire society. Fortunately, Stegall has created a mythos that is more inspired by films like "Underworld" and "Blade" than by any sparkling teen romance. That's not to say there isn't an element of romance contained in the story, only that it comes with equally healthy doses of action, mystery, and horror. The character development unfolds in a wonderful fashion, and it's fascinating to see how Stegall allowed the main protagonist to grow over her Vampire years. The details of the Vampire society are intricate and unique, and more than once I found myself chuckling at the ways he portrayed some of the complex relationships. The action/adventure aspect of the book is essential to the tale, and every fight scene was brilliantly scripted. Perhaps the only issue I had with the novel was the abundance of supporting characters, of which I occasionally got confused on. THE BLOOD OF OTHERS is an excellent dark fantasy, adventure-horror novel, with an exceptional female lead. It's dark, sexy, violent, and most of all, engrossing. Highly recommended.

I AM IN LOVE with this book!! I'm not a fan of flashbacks, but C.L makes it work big time!! He makes it work soo well that I just can't put the book down because I HAVE to know why things happened in the present. I am hooked! I love the detailed descriptions that are  given throughout the book. I feel like I am Paris, I feel like I'm there and I'm finding myself wrapped up in her world.  I am going to have a hard time waiting for the next book in the series!  This was incredibly well written and one of the BEST books I have read!

I picked this book up on my Nook over the weekend, and had real trouble putting it down.  The characters were superb, and I really enjoyed Stegall's writing style.   There was nothing here I did not thoroughly enjoy.  An interesting take on the typical vampire, great storytelling, fantastic action, with a great love story woven through.  It was bloody and violent and sensual.  Everything I wanted it to be.    This is the second book of Stegall's that  I have had the pleasure of reading.  It definitely will not be the last.

I received a copy of this book through an ARC (advanced reader copy) program. I was pleasantly surprised by this book. I was concerned it was going to be a teenage vampire story with your standard teenage angst but instead I found it to be a fast paced story with intrigue and a strong female lead. The story skipped around in time, going from the present day to various times during Paris' life. While normally I find stories that skip back and forth between time periods to be harder to read, I found the way this story handled those transitions to be clean and easy to follow. Rather than detracting from the story, they added to the mindset of Paris. I would read additional stories from this author related to the Lloranan.

I received The Blood Of Others as a ARC ( Advanced Reader Copy) I really enjoyed this book! I could not put this book down, it drew me in making me want to know more. The story goes between past and present from chapter to chapter, which I found very easy to follow. I loved the great detail throughout the book. The characters were well developed and pulled me in. I can not wait for the next book in the series, I'm hooked!
