Blood Descent by Marie Treanor

Blood Descent is book three in the Blood Hunter series, and before I start the review I want to urge you to read the first two books before reading this book, I don’t think this book works all that well as a stand alone, you really need the backstory in order to fully appreciate this book. This book follows Konrad and Maggie. Konrad is kind of a jerk, okay he’s totally a jerk (he deserves stronger language when you consider that he blew up a bar in the last book). Konrad is on a mission in this book, he wants to find the device that harnesses the power vampires. Much like in the prior two books this is once again a story that involves a hunter and a vampire, and this book is no different, Konrad being the hunter and Maggie being the very young vampire. It’s completely understandable that Konrad (being a hunter and all) is really against having feelings for Maggie, something he totally hates that is developing with him. For me Konrad in this book is not my favorite, I actually kind of border on hate him. He’s abusive to Maggie and she just takes it, which is really hard for me to read over and over. I really don’t like women who take any kind of abusive from men, so between me not liking Konrad because he’s a jerk, I also really didn’t enjoy reading Maggie at certain points because she came off as too much […]

Blood of Angels by Marie Treanor

We are back for the second book in the trilogy, Blood of Angels. For me this book was much more romance, or rather paranormal romance than it was urban fantasy. I felt like the first book felt more urban fantasy than paranormal romance. So just a heads up, in case you go into this book looking for a heavy urban fantasy book, this one is much more character/romance driven than urban fantasy story. So Istvan is recovering from being seriously injured in a recent fight, and he is looking for answers to some things that he thinks will help him as a hunter. In order to get these answers he has to seek out Angyalka, who of course becomes the love interest in this story. Treanor really likes to put together Hunters and vampires, so this is just another example of this. The two of them have a lot of chemistry together, or at least that’s the read I had one them. They trade a lot of jabs with each other, but there is definitely a sexual component to their relationship. The problem for them really comes down to one of them is a Hunter and the other is a Vampire. The two of them have to come together in order to get their the answers they both seek. Since this book is very character driven, there is a lot of inner problems, like trying to deal with internal issues, both of them seem to be trying to find acceptance as […]

Blood Guilt by Marie Treanor

So this book is the opening book to a trilogy that from what I gathered is connected to another series, and as always, full disclosure, I have not read the other series. If you have read the other series and are reading this review, I might be missing out on some of the background information you have, but this book definitely stands on its own without reading the other series. It’s been a while since I have read a vampire book, they were really my first love when I got into the urban fantasy genre, so it was nice to kind of get back to it. This particular vampire book focuses mainly on Miheala, who is a vampire hunter, which can definitely make things tricky when you start getting involved with vampires. I liked Miheala, she was definitely a character who was a bit more on the damaged side than most, but in spite of having a past, she is strong in the sense that she moves towards her goals and doesn’t back down. I always enjoy a character that is a bit on the tortured side. As for Max, well he is kind of like Miheala in some ways. He too has the whole tortured soul (or non-soul) thing going on. And when Miheala and Max come together because of a third party, the definitely have some kind of attraction going on. I think what made this pairing work, at least in this book was that there was a […]
