A surprisinly good short story. At least short for me. Another tale in the world of the bloodkin. This time about vampire and witch. A little bit different from the ones we tend to find in other authors. Great job. Please keep writing. MR.

An entertaining aside in the Bloodkin realm between a clueless witch and a despised spider. It's a bit quick, but doesn't feel horribly rushed despite that, and is an enjoyable short read. Worth checking out if you enjoy that realm! Copy received in exchange for honest review.

It was a very short read, almost too short. The story moves along well until Judith and Calvin arrive at Lady Fane's residence. Once they are in his cabin things move too quickly. I would have loved for things to continue at a bit of a slower pace, or at least have the writing longer if not the time frame of the plot. Once they give in to their passions it is like wam-bam-thank-you-ma'am. There was no finesse, no details, it was just quick. After that his struggle to not harm her and how she protects herself was good, but then when he arrives to speak with Lady Fane after Judith has left it is back to being rushed. I needed more from the relationship, more interactions, more emotion, and more passion. I just needed more. This story could have been really good, the concept was great, the set up for the emotional tension of the situation was great, but the writing was rushed. I love Erin's writing and the Bloodkin series is great, I just wanted more out of this novella. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader’s Copy of this book.

Hot, Quick, Fun & Highly Entertaining! “One night. May the best witch win.” Until Dawn by Erin Kellison is a novella in the Bloodkin world of the author’s fabulous Dragons of Bloodfire series! I read it as part of the Taming the Vampire boxed set. Now it’s available on its own! Even though it’s labeled as #2.5 in the series, it can be fully enjoyed as a standalone read, if that is your preference. This is the story of vampire Calvin Blake and of rookie witch Judith Kress. Calvin serves Bloodkin Lady Evangeline Marguerite Beatrice Fane. As a vampire, his choices are limited within the Bloodkin universe; to serve or to prey; He elects to serve Lady Fane, an elderly dragon who sustains him with her powerful blood. Lady Fane and Calvin are fans of a reality television show, Witching Wild, in which Judith is one of a trio of the show’s newbie witch stars. While watching the latest installment, Lady Fane and Calvin witness a devious act of magic committed against Judith, their favorite cast member. Worried about Judith, Lady Fane tasks Calvin with saving her and taking out whoever had targeted her. Of course, things are never that simple. I loved Calvin and Juidth both! Calvin is a knight-in-shining-armor to Judith’s up-and-coming witch. I enjoyed watching them learn, trust and grow individually - and as a couple - as they worked through multiple life-threatening crises. Their off-the-wall sex scene was something I won’t soon forget! LOL! I think I’ll go read that part again! Following please find a few of my favorite quotes from Until Dawn: “Oh, the envelope did contain magic,” a strange, low voice said from the doorway. Judith looked over. She forgot her cut and her coffee. And how to breathe. The tall, broad man filling up the door frame looked like a warrior angel with gold hair falling into his eyes, a pale-gold undertone to his skin, and ‘heartbreaking’ green eyes…. “Any magic that involves blood is a grave threat,” he continued. “And death by paper cut would be a long and tedious way to go. I can help.” --- Apparently, she was going to visit an evil witch with a scary poet vampire. --- “Vampires aren’t noble?” “No. We serve or we prey.” “Like monks?” He frowned, confused, and then gave a soft chuckle. “Prey, as in hunt. No God would hear our prayers.” I loved this story! It was everything I have come to expect from Erin’s Bloodfire books except the primary characters are not dragons. Vampires and witches with dragons on the side totally work for me! This tale was hot, quick, funny and highly entertaining. I would highly recommend Until Dawn to anyone who enjoys imaginative, fast-paced, action-packed paranormal romances! My full review is posted at Reading Between The Wines Book Club. Please check it out there! Suggested Reading Order: Dragons of Bloodfire series Tempted by Fire (Book #1) Awakened by Fire (Book #2) Until Dawn (Book #2.5) Seduced by Fire (Book #3) – coming soon!

The witch and the vampire! Will a paper cut and a curse kill a star of a reality show or will a stranger save the day? I read this previously in an anthology. Another wonderful read by Erin Kellison! A fast paced tale! Loved the characters and the storyline! I enjoyed this short story full of action and romance!

Erin never fails to write intriguing stories and this one is no exception. Judith and her two friends are regular cast members on Witching Wild. Judith is a witch, who has been trying to learn her craft on the show, but she knows nothing about channelling her natural abilities. Elizabeth’s dream is to be on the show next season, being brought in as a fourth cast member. As a real witch, Elizabeth intends to challenge Judith, but instead a simple papercut creates a blood bond between the two; now only one can live. Bloodkin Lady Fane and Calvin, the vampire who serves her, have a special fascination for the show and the three friends on it, and Calvin is ordered to kill Elizabeth for putting Judith’s life in danger; if he doesn’t he will be defying Lady Fane’s orders, thereby breaking his oath to serve her. Judith cannot believe she is visiting an evil witch, accompanied by a scary vampire; she cannot condone killing any person and hopes Elizabeth will co-operate. Elizabeth tries to impose her power over Calvin, but cannot because of his dragon blood, and instead she receives an ultimatum; alter and impose a time-frame on the curse or he will kill her immediately. Judith and Calvin have been given until dawn. The way Calvin looks and speaks to Judith makes her feel powerful; she suddenly feels energised, as if she has finally crossed into the world where she belongs, the witch she knew she has been born to be. It would be one night to overcome whatever it is Elizabeth has planned for them; but what will that be and who is Elizabeth really targeting? For Judith and Calvin, this will be a night neither will forget, a night where they discover each other as equals and so much more. I enjoyed reading this book and would have no hesitation in recommending it. A copy of this book was provided to me with no requirements for a review.

I read Until Dawn as part of the Taming the Vampire anthology. Judith is a reality TV star/witch who happens to be a real-life witch. It appears that someone is trying to do her harm though, which really doesn't go down well with Lady Fane, a Bloodkin Dragoness. She sends her 'spider' to find out who is trying to harm her favourite, and to also put a stop to it. This is a short story, but is packed full of the detail and description that you would expect from an Erin Kellison story. Well written, with no editing or grammatical errors, and a smooth pace, this story is best read as part of the Dragons of Bloodfire series, but can standalone if you really want. Definitely recommended by me. * A copy of this book was provided to me with no requirements for a review.

Vampire Cal is on a mission. Find out who’s trying to harm reality tv star (and witch) Judith and eliminate the threat if necessary. This author kept the illusion that it was going to be a simple tale but the story was so neatly told and full of surprising turns that before it was over it was obvious it was nothing I thought it would be. I liked her different take on vampires and how they ranked among the other beings in this world. For such a short story it had plenty of action, drama, and a sweet ending. I hope there is more from this couple or at least from Judith's “coven” because they sounded like fun. 3.5 stars rounded to 4. *A copy of this book was provided to me with no requirements for a review.
