    4 1/2 BLOWN AWAY stars!!!WOW! JUST WOW! I freaking LOVED this book.After being disappointed with the last book Blood Awakening, I almost didn't give this story a chance. Boy, am I glad I did. I would have missed out on a fantastic book, as this is definitely my favorite thus far. I have been intrigued from the beginning of the series with the vampire king, Napoleon. He is a very powerful, magnetic, yet elusive character and is, frankly, the main reason I decided to give this book a chance. I think what surprised me the most was the love story and how good it was considering this series is not strong in the romance department. Brooke, the heroine, was the perfect mate for Napoleon (swoon) and I loved them together. The sensual chemistry between these two characters was tangible and authentic. We saw a soft and vulnerable side to Napoleon that was simply dazzling. For me, where this book really shined, though, was when the author spared the reader from experiencing an atrocious event that happened to our much loved hero and heroine through brilliant writing. I can not express enough how much I appreciated that.This series is definitely NOT for everyone. It's dark, edgy, brutal, and very violent. However, if you can handle or even like this type of storyline (and shakes head wondering what is wrong with me), you might want to give this story a try.Warning: This series is NOT FOR THE FAINT OF HEART! It is much more HORROR than romance (just think of the gore in the movie Saw). These books are full of explicit violence, bloodlust, and mayhem. Please use discretion before reading this series.

    Hey, Tessa Dawn, Marilyn Manson called and asked if you could tone down the darkness a bit!Wow, that was thoughtful of you!Yeah, so these books are dark. Like, It-the-Clown wet his pants dark. There is: Torture - a lot of torture. Rape - a lot of rape - male and female. Fight scenes - a lot - bloody and brutalMurder - again, a lot. Dismemberment - yeah, a lot more than you would expect.And, blood - well, not too much blood for a vampire series. There was a reasonable amount of blood.But, they are also Paranormal Romance novels in which a different vampire finds his mate in each book. In the last book, I really didn't care for the couple, so that kind of sucked. But, I liked both of them in this one.We have Napolean, the good-vampire king, and Brook, a marketing executive with a horrible childhood. She'd been kidnapped before (not a spoiler), so she didn't exactly take too kindly to being grabbed by Napolean when it is revealed that she is his mate. For some weird reason, human women aren't big on the whole 'I'm kidnapping you, turning you into a vampire, and impregnating you with twins - one of which I will have to kill because it's evil' thing. But, Brook and Napolean are both pretty awesome, so it seems like it might just work out. Problem is that Napolean gets possessed by an evil demon (as opposed to a good demon) and their honeymoon turns into a torture fest. Aww, memories of my own honeymoon.... True, I was a lovely bride!Outside of each 'love story' is a larger-scale story going on in this world as the good vampires and evil vampires war. The evil vampires are so twisted, sick, and psychotic that you really do have to love them. Even more so when they are kind of funny. A look at one of their evil meetings:After Mr. Bad Vamp is ordered to perform an evil spell: "Magick spells are not like McDonald's hamburgers," he ranted. "You can't just get another one around the corner.""McDonald's hamburgers?" Milano echoed. "Dude, you really need to chill."Oskar slammed his gavel down..."Are we going to hatch another plan?""Sure," Salvatore snarled. "Would you like that plain or with cheese? Perhaps I should hold the pickles!"Milano shook his head and rubbed his temples. "Do you eat food or something now?" he asked, perplexed.Somebody wants McDonald's! Maybe a Happy Meal toy would cheer him up!Just pick whatever creepy doll you want to haunt your dreams. Would you like fries with that?So, all in all this is a fun series. I am excited to read the next one because we left someone in hell to be tortured endlessly. I can't wait to see what they have in store for him next!

    This is one -- one of those series that you never heard of before. You read the first book and are impressed as you think "hey, not bad; not bad at all." You immediately read the second book because now you are pulled into the story and the characters and you want to know more. You finish the second book and think "damn, why haven't I ever heard of this before? That book was even better than the first book." You immediately start the third book because there is no way in hell that you can stop yourself -- especially since the third book will be about the character you find even more fascinating than all the other characters. You think to yourself, "yay, I can't wait to see what this 'bad ass' can do." Yep. Tessa Dawn (again, I never even heard of her before) is a GENIUS! This series is "over the top" good. Its interesting, has characters that are intriguing and really pretty damned scarry. Well, now that you've read this review, do yourself a favor and get these books. I dare you to stop at the first book!

    I am speechless right now. I just finished and can't quit thinking about this book! Fabulous !!!Update 6-9-2014You know those stories that stick with you? The ones that invade your thoughts, sometimes haunt your dreams? Blood Possession is that story for me. After Blood Destiny and Blood Awakening I didn't think things could get more intense in Dark Moon Vale...boy was I mistaken! Let me start off by saying that Napolean Mondragon is one [email protected]#$ Vampire. He can harness the sun! Now that is no ordinary parlor trick. He's also been alone for so long he was sure there was no way the Gods were going to grace him with a love of his own. So when Brooke finally arrives as his Destiny I was so happy for him. I should've known better than to think his claiming her, turning her and impregnating her with the future King would be less cumbersome than it turned out to be.Napolean harbors a guilt that he doesn't let show for a father that he loved so dearly but could not help when the curse came to call. Of course the Dark Ones figure that out and use it to their advantage to taunt him, to try and break him. They use any means necessary to try and take down Lord Mondragon including using a human to transfer the most evil of evils. Through everything is his destiny, Brooke. She has no idea what is happening, she's scared (who wouldn't be).And just when she is learning to trust Napolean,the rug is pulled out from under them both.Without giving everything away I will say that in Blood Possession we see families devestated, lies told, unspeakable acts done but, even in the darkest of hours there is a strength from our Males of the House of Jadon that could never be rivaled. I screamed, cried, had my heart shattered and then slowly "almost" mended during this book. Yes, it is that good and if you haven't taken the trip to Dark Moon Vale, I'd say it's about time you did.

    "My name is Napolean, but my enemies call me Justice."In this book, the moon turns blood red for Napolean, the King of the House of Jadon. He has weeks to convince his destiny that she was chosen by the Goddess Andromeda to be his mate and to bear his twin boys. If he fails to sacrifice one of his twin sons (the evil one) he will die a horrible death due to the blood curse.This is the best book in the series by far. Even though they are all amazing, this one blew me away. I felt so attached to the characters, and I was thrilled to discover this book is more of an ensemble. The characters from the previous books are involved and so much happens to all of them. The powerful Silivasi brothers once again unite and try to save their king. There is plenty of action, thrills, blood, horror,love and romance. The characters come to life and make you smile, laugh, and cry. There are several laugh out loud moments. Tessa is a very unique and talented writer. Her books should be six stars.

    My ThoughtsFantasy novels aren’t supposed to be so thought provoking that it makes one think about the universe and the meaning of life in a different way, are they? The latest in Tessa Dawn’s Blood Curse series, Blood Possession, has me doing exactly that…thinking about things in life that I’ve never considered before. I kid you not! You are probably thinking I’m crazy or at least that I can’t be talking about a paranormal romance novel. But I’m not. Crazy, I mean and I am talking about my favorite genre, PNR…I swear it!Blood Possession is very much a Dark Fantasy novel about good fighting against evil in our beloved paranormal romance genre. Tessa Dawn manages to incorporate into her tale of Vampyrs a philosophy on how we are deeply connected to the universe through our life’s energy and how we make cosmic imprints by our actions and thoughts even. Interestingly, it adds depth and originality to the often over-used Vampyr origin histories and puts Dawn's idea in a class above the others. Tessa’s Vampyrs are descendants of Celestial Beings that live in a place where spirits and souls can exist away from a physical body - a nonphysical realm so to speak and this idea is instrumental to this particular tale. My own novel rating system advises me to award 5 stars to a novel that is enjoyable, well structured, has compelling characterization and plot, great tone and pace for the genre and is brilliant in its delivery. Also, I would have no misgivings about recommending it to my friends. Seriously readers, in my opinion, Blood Possession meets all those elements and more, surpassing what I’ve ever given in another review. It’s truly above and beyond any other PNR novel I’ve read. So it’s more like a 5+ or 6 star read.It took me days to gather my thoughts and calm my emotions in order to write this review. And that is in no way a bad thing. It just took time for me to sort out what I liked most and figure out why it resonated with me on such a deep level in order to communicate my experience to you. This novel stirred intense feelings and emotions. There is one scene in particular where, at the same time as I was feeling overpowering love and respect for the hero/heroine, i was feeling an equal measure of loathing for the villain. I guess this is customary; however, this particular scene was so well written that it took my breath away. When I was finished reading that scene, I realized that i was crying so hard, it could only be called "ugly crying". Wiping tears away, I actually hugged my Kindle (so glad I was alone when that happened). I wanted to bow down to the brilliance of this author in how she handled such a delicate event. There were a few scenes in the novel like that and some will impact different readers in different ways. However, I guarantee, if you have feelings, you will be affected by at least one of them. I can never do this novel justice in such a short review; however, I’ll give it a go for you so you can consider reading this masterpiece of work that is The Blood Curse series. ________________________________________About the story…________________________________________Tessa Dawn’s series has an entire backstory explaining the origins of Vampyrs and how & why they were cursed. It’s explained well in the novel, however for your benefit, here is a summary from the author…In 800 BC, Prince Jadon and Prince Jaegar Demir were banished from their Romanian homeland after being cursed by a ghostly apparition: the reincarnated Blood of their numerous, female victims. They belonged to an ancient society that had sacrificed its females to the point of extinction, and the punishment was severe.They were forced to roam the earth in darkness as creatures of the night. They were condemned to feed on the blood of the innocent and stripped of their ability to produce female offspring. They were damned to father twin sons by human hosts who would die wretchedly upon giving birth; and the first born of the first set would forever be required as a sacrifice of atonement for the sins of their forefathers.Staggered by the enormity of The Curse, Prince Jadon, whose own hands had never shed blood, begged his accuser for leniency and received four small mercies -- four exceptions to the curse that would apply to his house and his descendants, alone.• Though still creatures of the night, they would be allowed to walk in the sun.• Though still required to live on blood, they would not be forced to take the lives of the innocent.• While still incapable of producing female offspring, they would be given one opportunity and thirty-days to obtain a mate -- a human female, chosen by the gods (their destiny)-- following a sign that appeared in the heavens.• While still required to sacrifice a first born son, their twins would be born as one child of darkness and one child of light, allowing them to sacrifice the former while keeping the latter to carry on their race.And so... Forever banished from their homeland in the Transylvanian mountains of Eastern Europe, the descendants of Jaegar and the descendants of Jadon became the Vampyr of legend: roaming the earth, ruling the elements, living on the blood of others...forever bound by an ancient curse.They were brothers of the same species, separated only by degrees of light and shadow.________________________________________About Blood Possession (Book #3)________________________________________In the previous novel, the Vampyrs of the House of Jadon delivered a devastating blow to the Dark Ones (descendants of Jaegar) slaying many of the dark brothers. Since then, thoughts of vengeance have consumed Salvatore (a sorcerer) leading him to devise a plan to kill the King, Napolean, thus endangering the continuance of their House. The plan Salvatore devised was actually quite ingenious, if he could pull it off. His logic was surprisingly simple but held great possibility - start killing humans in Dark Moon Vale to keep the sons of Jadon so busy cleaning up the mess, that they wouldn’t notice the gradual changes in their King as dark magic started to influence his behavior and actions. Salvatore knew that Napolean is too powerful to try and kill physically in combat, so the use of dark magic was the only way. Killing the King will allow Salvatore to regain his lost respect of the council members after the last humiliation and hopefully regain some political standing with the council.Salvatore counted on the House of Jadon being unprepared after their earlier success and he was right. As powerful as the lighter sons are, they underestimated Salvatore’s cunning and desire for vengeance to their detriment. Salvatore’s plan was deadly and unfortunately for Napolean, well thought out and executed. The threats built and became even more dangerous as the novel progressed and the sons of Jadon were constantly taken unawares and could only deal reactively to new threats. There was no opportunity to go on the offensive and plan a proactive strategy. The House of Jadon learned some hard lessons in this novel and has come to realize that the old values they hold to are no longer valid and new tactics for protection of their race have to be made. ________________________________________In the midst of all the danger and conflict, Napoleon Mondragon, the King and Leader of the Vampyrs of the House of Jadon, suddenly is shown his Blood Moon - the sign from the Gods that the time has come for him to meet his destiny (life mate). At 2,800 years old, Napoleon had pretty much given up on the idea that he would have a true destiny like his brethren. He’d accepted the fact and was content with ruling as Vampyr King. But now that his Blood Moon has appeared, he has one month to convince his destiny, Brooke, to accept him as her mate and provide the sacrifice or he life will end. As is the Blood Curse. As a human, Brooke has no idea about the existence of this other world of Vampyrs, Destinies and Blood Curses. And to say she’s unhappy to find out that she is someone’s destined mate is an understatement. All was good in her world. She was just starting to break into the “old-boys network”, moving up the corporate ladder and slowly starting to get recognized for her achievements. Then Napolean pops up out of nowhere and turns her world upside down. After many escape attempts and the destruction of many pieces of priceless art, she slowly starts to realize that this is all truly happening. The path to ‘happy ever after’ for Napolean and Brooke is not a pretty one as conspiracies unfold and enemies endanger their fated union. And their enemies are many - Dark Vampyrs from the House of Jaegar, powerful sorcerers, the ultimate Dark Lord Ademordna and now even human vampire hunters. ________________________________________The Characters…Characterization in a romance novel is key. In this novel, each main character and supporting character is well thought out and developed so that just the right amount of detail is given to complement their role in the story. We see good sides to the Vampyrs so that we can fall in love with them. However, we are never brought too far into the warm and fuzzy that we forget the truth…that Vampyrs are powerful and vicious killers. I’m dying to say more on this but alas I cannot or I’ll be going into spoiler territory. I will say that there’s a scene with Nathaniel that will put the true Vampyr nature right back into perspective for you.Napolean is the ultimate Vampyr King - strong, capable, regal, proud, the ultimate protector of his people and of course sexy as hell. He is a little old-fashioned in his propriety and expects complete obedience from his people. But saying that, he does not rule with tyranny and has the unwavering loyalty of his people. Although he shows the upmost tenderness and compassion to Brooke while she’s coming to terms with her new life, he has certain expectations of her since she is to be queen. He doesn’t have the luxury of wooing her slowly like other Vampyrs. Brooke is a very strong character. Not kick-ass strong like some of our favourite Urban Fantasy heroines but more courageous than most. She’s stood against terrible odds in her life and came out with a dignity and grace becoming of a destined queen. (Well, except the minor incident when she ends up spread eagled and bare-assed on the floor during a presentation to her employer...but you’ll read all about that early in the novel). Its hard for her to accept how she is the one chosen as Napolean's queen and I love how he convinces her of her worthiness of her fated position. She’s also funny as all get out! There’s one scene in particular, after she becomes a vampyr, where she stands in front of a mirror looking for her fangs and claws, and practices saying “I vant to drink yer blood”. She has many of these “private” moments, however, I wonder how “private” they really are given vampyr powers of telepathy. The villains in this novel go from bad to worse. Salvatore is a powerful and twisted sorcerer, however, the Dark Lord (Ademordna) he calls on to help exact that vengeance is so bad that even Salvatore runs for cover in his presence. We see a lot of the formidable Silivasi brothers and their destinies that we fell in love with in the last two novels again. Marquis is in fine form acting and reacting to situations in his typical way. Smiling at the thought of getting to kill something. It pretty funny when he starts bringing his 4-week old baby son to warrior strategy meetings thinking its fine because he figures the baby will understand what’s going on because its his son. Marquis is still my favorite hero in the series!Nachari Silivasi plays a huge role in this novel. As the only Master Wizard in Dark Moon Vale, he is essential in fighting the Dark Lord’s magic. I can’t say any more about what happens to him (again the spoiler thing), but let me just say that Nachari carried many burdens in this novel and it was to his detriment. The next chapter in this series will be his.Tiffany is Brooke’s best friend and she adds a lot to the story. She is instrumental in Brooke’s life being her entire support system and tries to save Brooke from her assumed captivity. I really hope she sticks around and Tessa finds a place for her in the series. And this review couldn’t be complete without mentioning Braden - the 15-year-old fledgling Vampyr wizard training under the supervision of Nachari. He is coming into his own powers now that he’s getting older and those powers are surprising to say the least. His role in the series is like a 'coming of age' story, and the scary thing is, he has taken quite a liking to Marquis. Hopefully he’ll find lessons in what not to do. Last but certainly not least are the new sentinel brothers of the King & Queen. Ramsey, Saxson and Santos Olaru. We get to hear a good deal about Ramsey as Tessa warms us up for his future in the series. So as you can see, character development is a definite strength of Tessa’s work as she continues to incorporate old ones and introducing the new.________________________________________Bottom LineSo, bottom line is that I cannot recommend this novel enough. Tessa Dawn’s Blood Possession is a 6 star read. Gods, it’s even a 10 star read!! The backstory on the origins of Vampyrs is original and well thought out, the characters are beyond compelling and each one is developed perfectly according to role in the story, the overall pace and tone is appropriate for the genre and the way the events unfold is perfection. Blood Possession is a dark fantasy paranormal romance and is therefore intense at times. There may be scenes a reader may find exception with, however, Tessa is brilliantly delicate in her delivery of sensitive events. There is no doubt in my mind that you will find this novel unforgettable and you will find a connection with at least one character. Marquis is mine though…just saying! There is a little background from past novels worked in so this novel could be read out of sequence and before the others. However, if you do choose to go that route, be prepared to want to go back and read the first two as well.Happy Reading!!6 Bad Boys – An Outstanding Must Read!!!!!!

    This book def deserves 5 out of 5 startsBlood Possession in my opinion is the best book of this series.The story it's so emotional, intense, dark nd really cruel that sometime i find it hard to read how well Tessa Dawn described it.I am very impressed by Napolean Mondragon nd Brooke Adams story just the right one for a king.Napolean Mondragon is not just a vampire he is the king of the house of Jadon. Brooke Adams is a senior account rep for Primar company, she is in dark moon vale for a business conference but little she knows that this trip will change all her life.Napolean abducts Brooke from the cab when his birth constellation Andromeda appears and finds out that Brooke it's his destiny.Even before they have time to know each other and to convert her into a vampire the "dark ones" are planing to kill Napolean by possession and rape Brooke.This was the best part of book and the most intense when Mackari and the rest are making a plan to save they king and his mate.When the dark one takes possession of Napolean body he converts Brooke in a cruel way but before he rapes her nd leaves her pregnant Napolean spirit take's her with him so she dosen't feel the pain when she is being beeten and rape by the dark one.after they saved Napolean Nackari remains stuck in the other life with the dark one not finding the power to fight to come back.Brooke Nd Napolean heals bk just in time for the birth of they twins when Napolean has to sacrifice the dark one and Brooke ask him to put her to sleep not 2 see it and feel anything.After the birth Brooke realise that all she wanted was a family and some one to protect her and that's wot she got now.Nackari's family is stugules with the pain that he didn't come bk yet when Brooke's friend comes to rescue her friend with a team which hunts vampires and the wifes of marquis nd Nathaniel get's hurt and they kill the hunters and captures Tiff. She has a gift by seeing in her dreams the future nd the past so they can't erase her memory.Brooke meets with her friend and all it well apart of Nackari not being back yet.

    Blood Possession by Tessa DawnMy rating: 5 of 5 starsSpeaking of amazing series, the first book in this series was ok but not great but each book has been a bit better and now I am frustrated since I have read the last of the 3 books that have been released Blood Possession (Blood Curse Series) and since it was just released in April, I have to assume book 4 will be a long time coming and she leaves the most "I gotta get the next book" teasers at the end of each book, its maddening :) I would have to say these 3 books taken together have been about a 4.5 Star reading for me, make no mistake, the bad guys in this book are E V I L and the Blood Curse is a horrible curse that the books are based around but I have enjoyed them immensely and they do have a lot of heart wrenching moments (that usually get all better of course). I would highly recommend them but be warned, these are not light hearted reading and book 1 might leave you cold but it has a lot of the world building and background so don't base the series on that first book, it gets much better from there.View all my reviews

    Review posted here: http://offbeatvagabond.blogspot.com/2012/04/book-review-blood-possession-blood.html Book 3 in the Blood Curse series, Blood Possession, follows the one and only Napoleon. Not only is he the leader of the House of Jadon (Light Vampires), he is the most powerful of all the vampires. But given that the House of Jaegar (Dark Vampires) want revenge on Napoleon after he single-handedly killed 88 of their evil brethren, they are intent of destroying the King. The death of the King would bring the House of Jadon crumbling. But after trying to manipulate Napoleon with the guilt of his father, they find that his destiny Brooke has been revealed. And the Dark Ones come up with a plan that not only put the King and Brooke in danger, but has devastating consequences on the entire House of Jadon. Dawn has once again written a story so intriguing, so passionate, and so emotionally draining. It truly is a wonder where she comes up with this stuff. Napoleon's story is full of so much guilt, triumph, and vulnerability. It is hard to not to be head over heels for him. Even though he is scary, very very scary, he is surprisingly warm and lovable. Nothing like Marquis who I also love, but the guy comes off as a block of ice. I loved the destiny that was chosen for Napoleon. Brooke was incredible. She had her head on straight and was brilliant. She is a master at her job even though she is the only woman. She is quite a fighter and has a dreadful past. I love how Napoleon handles this. The justice system didn't do anything and he took matters into his own hands without physically moving a finger. Man, that scene gave me chills. And of course the Dark Ones do everything their power to kill Napoleon, so Brooke is instantly a pawn. This brings forth some horrific events that were just so heart wrenching torturous. We get plenty from the other Brothers as well. Marquis is still he mean self, but he still saves his smiles for his wife and child. Nathaniel and Jocelyn are great as well. What I loved most was Nachari and Braden. They always make me laugh when they are together. Braden is once again testing the limits of his powers with his experiments. I love that we are beginning to see how Braden may be the only human turned vampire in existence, but the powers that he possesses may be bigger than any of the older vamps realize. I also love that we finally get to know Kagen. He is definitely more emotional compared to the other Brothers and that makes him scarier than the rest. I love that even though his profession isn't warrior or wizard, he is the Healer, he is still a force to be reckoned with. And even after all of that, Dawn still gave us more with Tiffany, Brooke's best friend. After her mind had been wiped, her memories come back in her dreams. She becomes desperate to save Brooke. The band of vampire hunters she hires though are less than honorable and definitely have their own agenda. But what was worse was when they attacked and who they attacked first. Bad move guys, very very bad moves. You don't know blood and gore until you have read this. Damn Nathaniel! He really is the "creative one". We are getting the beginnings of Nachari's story which I have been dying for. Nachari is perhaps my favorite of the group. He gives up everything to save Napoleon and Brooke. I am trying hard not to spoil here, but Nachari is definitely in for the battle of all battles. I loved the epilogue in the book. Honestly, I wish Dawn didn't put it in the book because I am too excited for more as it is. Wow, just wow. Why is it so hard to review a book you love so much? This is truly one of the best series I have come across. Dawn's imagination and no-holds-barred writing always leaves me breathless and in awe. All of her characters are so rich and just out of this world incredible. Goodness, why can't I have one of these guys?! Dawn's worldbuilding is so amazing and unique. I love that this is a vampire story that truly stands on its own. And I must say it for those that don't know, this is an adult book. It is very graphic and dark, so read with caution if this is not your sort of thing. It isn't for everybody. Nonetheless, start this series today. It is a must-read.

    Solid 4.5 StarsAnother wild rollercoaster ride of fear, intense emotions & the like.I really, really loved this one. The only thing that kept this from being a 5 star read for me, was there was a crucial occurrence within the story concerning our hero & heroine. One that I felt was EXTREMELY vital within this story, but it was greatly glossed over. Therefore leaving the plot concerning the H/h a bit unbalanced, IMO. Given the author's track record with this series in terms of pushing the envelope, it just didn't make sense to me why she held back with this particular event. But...Whatever.. Moving on.This read was still a very dark, just flat out frightening read. But there was a great love story here as well. With Napolean & Brooke as well as with Silivasi Brothers. Between the unyielding strength, love & unity among the brothers as well as their "destinies", I was a sighing, tear snot nosed mess. There were some great moments here.I would HIGHLY recommend this read/series. Please read in order. This one ends with an HEA. The Epilogue has me GREATLY intrigued about book 4, though.*WARNING*This is a brutal series in terms of gore, blood, guts & many types of depravity. This book was no exception, so please proceed with caution here.

    3.5 starsI entered the world of Dark Moon Vale again binge buddy reading with my pal, Princess Nhya, and this time, the good vampires' beloved king got his chance at destiny.But nothing is to be smooth, for his enemies, rivals of Sons of Jadon, cannot let a blood moon pass without cooking up evil schemes to gain power and dominion.Part of what's kept me interested in this series is its attention to the enemy's side, the characterization and motivation that is shown. While I ultimately root for the good vampires to be alpha, woo their destined mates, and save the day, I also want the bad guys to be diabolical, make it a challenge and have some bad guy charisma. What can I say, I like a good villain. I even like to be offhandedly sympathetic towards him.In book 2, the story of the villain was balanced out with the story of the hero. Even in book 1, where the backstory and details of the good and bad ones had to be laid out, I got a hefty glance at the villain and believed his cunning and resolve to be sometimes more profound than the brotherhood of heroes. Tessa Dawn can make a good villain; however, in this book, I was teased with a scene of the evil-doers evil plans, and then their PoV takes a backseat. There's some extension of their plight, represented in another, equally evil, character, but after the action happens, the reader gets a noticeable silence and isn't given information about what is happening on the other side, with the Dark ones.I had many questions: (view spoiler)[Why do the good vampires fall so easily into the set-ups? Why didn't they check? Why am I reading repetitive explanations when there's still problems to solve? If telepathy is so acute, why does it take so much time for them to sense something major just happened. (hide spoiler)] I could go on and on with questions, but I know this is PNR, a genre in which I usually suspend belief (more), and though Tessa Dawn is good at details, sometimes she misses the boat on timing and cohesion, maybe because she either adds to little or too much in certain places.Speaking of details, just when I was getting used to a copious amount of them, Dawn chooses to pull back and gloss over the details of a pivotal scene in the book. I felt cheated; I felt like she took my candy after having provided it to me in abundance. Like the TV was stolen and there's nothing to look at but the walls. On the one hand, she might have done it to focus on the couple more, give them more development. On the other hand, who cares? None of the books has been particularly steamy or steeped in just one couple's relationship. The plots have been stories of several characters wrapped together: mostly the good vamps, one bad vamp and then the heroines. The more poignant stories involve brotherly love, deep hatred and ambition to survival and rule. I'd rather keep reading the action, the plans, than get unequal tidbits of the heroine and hero's dance around each other, especially when it's... kind of boring.Don't get me wrong, the action is still worthy to be stamped as "good PNR entertainment", I was rounding my eyes in anticipation at time, and the hero vamp, Napolean Mondragon, says and does some pretty awesome things,“Should the gods allow it—and should you give me even the slightest opportunity—I hope to spend every ounce of my considerable power making you happy.”He even breaks into verse, the a poet king.“I’ll be your moonlight in the night; I’ll make everything all right. I’ll give you love; protect your heart; fulfill your dreams… Can’t you see I’ve always been that imaginary friend, the knight who still defends his treasured queen…”BUT he doesn't save the story,((view spoiler)[ another vamp does! Heck, even his heroine inadvertently gets him out of a close one. (hide spoiler)]. He is rendered vulnerable by his enemies who aptly use his arrogance, the unpreparedness of him and his men, against him. He made grand gestures, offered some heavy truths, but not enough for me to be wowed by him or feel he lived up to my anticipation of him as a hero. He's supposed to be the most powerful one, and this power was displayed awesomely in the previous book, but here I guess the author wanted to paint him in a different light, (view spoiler)[and/or show him to have subjects willing to go the distance for him because of his celestial importance. This way, it showed the good vamps were willing to fight to keep a symbol of divinity (through their king), but (hide spoiler)]meh...I wasn't buying it all the way, or at least it left me wanting. Furthermore, his heroine, Brook Adams, is even more insignificant than the two previous ones. Oh she gave me a couple of laughs. She starts off as quirky and ambitious. Then when she becomes the Napolean's destiny, her spunk is absent, somewhat understandable, but still her reactions were a little off and her initial characterization doesn't come back until the end. So, I maintain that I'm gonna need more development in the heroines of this series. Ciopori, book 2's heroine, has some power, but it's too wrapped around "soothing" to be badass, and Jocelyn, book 1, may be the only one to show some steel in her spine and her fists. After all she has been the most stubborn and exasperating one so far. LOLThis may seem like I didn't like the story, but I did. I just didn't find it as smooth as the second book when it came to focus on characters individually and their purposes within the plot as a whole. The misbalance is owed to that and inconsistencies in development. I think Tessa Dawn may need to hold back on some of the repetitive explanations(intentionally aimed to lessen confusion but cause yawning) and not worry so much about ending the book with a premature dive into "who's getting the next story" to incite reader's interest. I'm already interested, damn it! Now dazzle me. Book 2 remains my preferred book in this series so far, yet I still say everything so far has been darkly entertaining and good, if you are into dark fantasy.["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>

    Blood Possession is the third book in the Blood Curse series. Napolean Mondragon, the 2,800 year old Vampyr leader of the house of Jadon, is the only remaining male from the time of the blood curse. He has just met his destiny, Brooke Adams and he only has 30 days to complete the blood curse. Previously, Napolean was a bit of a mystery to me but he came alive in this book. He's powerful, respected, proud, and feared. It was great to see all the Brothers and their destinies. I love how they all came together to save Napolean. Of course Nachari stole the show.One of the drawbacks was the length of the book. I felt it could have been a bit longer. I wanted to see more of Napolean in his element, possibly leading his people and more of Napolean and Brooke. I also would have liked Napolean and Nachari figuring out what Salvatore was doing to him concerning the visions he was having. I felt this story line was rushed a bit. I have mixed feelings about Brooke. She is portrayed as an intelligent business woman but at times she seemed like an immature girl to me. Although, it was great to see her childhood connection to Napolean. I also didn't like Tiffany's part in this. I'm not really sure I see the point of her being such an integral part of the story. I would have much rather seen more of Napolean's story. I always love being in Dark Moon Vale and back with the Silivasi Brothers. Man did they kick some ass! We could clearly see each of their distinct personalities. Nathaniel is strong and ruthless. Marquis, is the elder brother who exudes authority, and Kagen is calm yet deadly. I really want more of Kagen. I hope he gets his own book. Last but not least and my favorite is Nachari. Nachari, the Ancient Wizard makes the ultimate sacrifice for his King and people. I can't gush enough about him. I loved every moment. He's sexy, witty, and confident. I wish we saw him battling with the Dark Lord before he was captured but hopefully we'll see it in his book :)It was great to see the women play such a big part. I loved Napolean's decree at the end demanding the women learn to defend themselves. I was hoping this wouldn't turn into a series where the women would end up at home raising the kids and were forced into the background. My favorite part was after the possession where Napolean and Brooke's souls merged. It was beautiful. Nachari suffering in the Valley of Death and Shadows hit me hard. My poor Nachari. Hmmm, and what can I say about Salvatore? Salvatore was chilling in the possession ritual. He is fantastically evil. The only thing I didn't like was Ademordna taking the form of a worm. All I kept thinking about was Chekov in the Star Trek movie Wrath of Khan. I guess the fact that Ademordna took a literal shape threw me. My favorite quote: "Hear me, Brooke," he purred, his voice a sultry promise of his commitment to their union. "You must understand who-and what-you are destined to mate. I am the sovereign king of an ancient race, begotten of gods and man. I-am-justice."I can't wait for Nachari's book!

    Well I finished the 3rd book Blood Possession from the Blood Curse series.  First I must say that I completely misinterpreted the title of this book!  And I believe this was deliberate on Tessa’s part as she has proved herself to be every bit as fiendish as her created characters!!Now for the book itself.  I think I can safely say that each book has taken it to the next level.  I read this as a group read and I know some of my fellow readers found the first half of the book to be boring.  Happily I did not have that issue; I thought the story moved along and flowed at a nice pace.  As for the main couple Napoleon and his destiny Brooke I have to say that out of the 3 couples so far theirs has been the most difficult journey and painful one.  As it became apparent what was about to unfold my first reaction was HELL NO this cannot be happening quickly followed by how in the world can this EVER be fixed!  But of course Tessa weaves the perfect counterweight to the horrific events!  I should have known she would given her previous 2 books, but because of the profound destruction that she weaves so well, you just cannot comprehend how on earth this will ever be fixed!  Think of a forest fire and the complete destruction left in its path………………now think of coming back 6 months later and finding the most exquisite  flower rising up and blooming from the ash.  THAT’S BLOOD POSSESSION!And just when you think the next book is going to be impossible Tessa gives you at the very end the most delicious tantalizing glimpse of what’s to come!My ONLY complaint is that I would have loved a little more couple time with this book.  While it was emotionally satisfying I found myself wanting more in that regard.

    **3.5 stars**I was eagerly anticipating this book about Napolean, the lord of the house of Jadon, and I hate saying I was disappointed. The first half of the book was sooo slow and the only reason I continued was this insane need to know what happens! Thank goodness things pick up in the second half.I think part of my frustrations is that so many things are going on in this book and it switches back and forth between so many different POV's. I really wanted more of Napolean and Brooke and I really feel like they got gypped! Especially with the intensity of everything that happens with them and they didn't even get mentioned in the Epilogue. In fact, the Epilogue is a preview of what's going to happen in the next book. I did like seeing the softer side of Napolean and I was a bit surprised at who his destiny was since it had seemed like it was going to be someone else. Brooke was wonderful and I think she handled everything exceptionally well. I really like how they came together as a couple. It was great seeing all the other couples coming together and helping each other. I also enjoyed the ongoing story line and am very curious as to how things will work out with Nachari.Favorite quote:♥ The truth is: while it may have been rough getting here, I’ve awakened to a dream. The most incredible man in the world came into my life and gave it back to me.”

    Wow! Talk about a dark and emotional read! This installment is fang-tastic, action-packed, fast-paced and most definitely twisted! I am addicted to this series. It grabbed at page one and kept me until the end. If I could have read it in one setting I would have. So hard to put down.This is Napoleon Mondragon's story and how he came to know his destiny - Brooke. Napoleon is the sovereign lord of the house of Jadon. The very heartbeat of his kind. He has been through so much and waited for a long time for his Blood Moon to come along, when it does happen, he claims his destiny and opens up one hellacious can of worms in the process. He has a dark secret he has carried with him since he was a child. Will the Dark Ones be successful in their plans or will they be thwarted? I don't use spoilers, so all I can say is Oh My Gawd! This is a very well written, deeply emotional, and OH-SO-HOT installment. The world buliding is consistent and multi-layered, the twists and turnns are so incredible and unexpected. The ending blew me away. Tessa Dawn is an amazing and talented author.#GoGetYaSome Silivasi Brothers! They are loyal, lethal, and intriguing characters.

    Napolean Mondragon is the head of the House of Jadon. For twenty-eight hundred years he has always put his duty above all else. He has given up on finding his Destiny the one created for him, his other half. Brooke Adams comes to Dark Moon Vale for a work meeting. She never thought she would be caught up in a Vampire War. Or that she would be used so horrendously to take down Napolean that will lead to his eventual death. Wow!! Had my sitting on edge of seat throughout the book. We find out just how far the House of Jaegar will go to take down 1 Vampire.Very intense and graphic scenes. Just Like a Good Dark Fantasy will have!!This Series Blood Curse has become one of my all time Favorites!5 STARSPatches

    I have to be honest and say that I wasn't really looking forward to reading Napoleon's book. I don't know why, but I just had this thing in the back of my head. Maybe it was because he's their king? You just assume he's going to be this stuffy "I am God" type. How wrong was I?I loved it, devoured it. Yes there is still things in the book that are so difficult to read. Very dark, sensitive subject matter. It's just part of the series as a whole and not for the faint hearted.Narcarhi's book is next and I'm so excited for it! It can't come soon enough.

    Wow...words cannot describe this series (Blood Curse series). I read all 3 books in the space of, like, 5 days. And these aren't small books, either. I COULD NOT put these books down!My co-workers said I should read this series. I am SO glad I did! They were definitely a new spin on vampires. Any woman who can get pregnant and have a baby in 48 hours, definitely piques my curiosity. These vamps can control the elements, nature, can teleport to other places within a blink of an eye, can compel others to do their bidding, whether a person wants to or not...what CAN'T these vampires do? OMG...and when the male vampires find their "destiny"...that one special woman meant for them, they will move heaven and earth to be with them, almost literally. Wow...if you haven't read this series, PLEASE do not hesitate to get all 3 books (Blood Curse, Blood Awakening, Blood Possession) at one time. I guarantee you, you will want to start the next book as soon as you finish the previous one. I am waiting with baited breath on Tessa Dawn's next book in this series. OMG...just...WOW...

    Rating: 4.5/5Heat Rating: 3/5Narrator Performance: 5/5Dark Possession is what I would consider a dark paranormal romance. There's gruesome yet imaginative violence but also compassion and love. The vampires of Dark Moon Vale are fiercely loyal and have immense power. I love "reading" about them!Reasons to read this book:- The ongoing battle between the Dark Ones and the Sons of Jadon.- Braydon's antics.- Nachari's bravery.- Nathaniel's creativity.- Jocelyn's downright badassness.- Napoleon's compassion, love & power.- Tessa Dawn's fantastic world building.Reasons to listen to this book:- Eric Dove's singing. -- I've always enjoyed Mr. Dove's performances but this one is my favorite by far. I loved that he sang Napoleon's song.* While I guess technically, due to Dawn's writing style, this can be read as a standalone I don't advise it. Part of the enjoyment is knowing the full backgrounds of the characters and their world.

    It really takes a great, talented, and brilliant writer to make me feel & wish I was one of the characters in his/her books. That is exactly how I felt while reading this third chapter in the Blood Curse series. A very unique story about the most powerful vampire and his journey to finding love. My anxiety levels were to the roof! I almost made a path on my living room floor as I paced and paced and paced. The knots in my stomach did not go away until the very last word. I was glued to my Kindle like a moth to the flame. I highly recommend these books to paranormal, dark fantasy & gothic horror lovers... I guarantee you that will not want to do anything but read until the wee hrs of the night... So what are waiting for? You know you want to...

    This was good and like the 2 previous books in the series, they are not for the faint-hearted. Even though these books are about the 'good' vampires I would never want to meet them in a dark alley. At one point one of the vampires compels a human to hack his limbs off one by one until he dies. Yup, pretty brutal. But that's what I love about this author, she doesn't shy away from anything. My only complaint would be that I thought the climatic ending happened too soon, I would have liked it closer to the end because the last 1/3 of the book seemed to drag out and I kept waiting for something else to happen. However great addition to the series.

    It is strange that I am such a paranormal romance fan yet I had never heard of this series before a few weeks ago. I follow a few authors on Facebook and saw that Lara Adrian had asked her fans what they were reading and loving so I read the responses and saw that someone was reading this series. A few people had replied and agreed that it was a great series so I looked it up. I downloaded the first book because it was free and it turned out to be a short prequel. It was so complex that I had to jot down notes to keep everything straight. I think more people should know about this series and it should be in the top 20 vampire or paranormal romance series, if not the top 10. The series is about a curse that began in 800 BC in Romania after a psychotic prince, Prince Jaegar Demir, had executed all the females of his race, a race that was descended from celestial gods. After slaughtering all of the females, their blood rose up and cursed the prince and his descendants with being evil vampires, never to walk in the sun again. The CurseThey shall never know the love of a female.They shall never produce a female offspring.Their sons will be born in sets of twins, both born of darkness (evil) and the firstborn son of the first set of twins shall be sacrificed for atonement. Failure to sacrifice that son will lead to horrible and agonizing death.The human host who carries the child will die painfully upon giving birth.They shall be creatures of the night never entering daylight lest they be killed.They shall have to ingest blood in order to live.The mad prince’s twin brother, Prince Jadon Demir, who had tried to save the females but ultimately failed, begged for clemency so he and his descendants received 4 mercies from Blood Curse. They still be able to walk in the light.Although they still have to drink blood to live, they do not have to take the life of the person who they feed from.They shall receive one opportunity to receive a mate and the sign will be shown in the heavens.They shall still have sets of twins but the first set will have one born of darkness and one born of the light. The twin born of the darkness will have to be sacrificed. Any set of twins born afterwards will both be born of the light. The Blood Curse is pretty complicated…and a bit cruel. Those dead women were really blood thirsty and angry. They cursed all the males of the race, not just Jaegar and Jadon’s descendants. They cursed their followers too. There are four brothers and a king who are key characters in this series.Napolean Mondragon was only ten years old at the time of the Blood Curse. He watched as Jaegar viciously killed his father. He ran but the Blood Curse caught him and transformed him into a Vampire. He became the king of the house of Jadon…the good Vampyrs or Light Vampyrs. The descendants of Jaegar are known as the Dark Ones and are evil to the core.Napolean meets his chosen destiny, a human who his mate. Brooke has a tortured past but has pulled herself up in the corporate world and is one of the best in her field. She is at a conference in Dark Moon Vale in the Colorado mountains when Napolean kidnaps her and tells her she is his destiny. She thinks he is crazy at first.The Dark Ones have a plan to destroy Napolean, thus destroying all of the descendants of Jadon. Salvatore Nistor, a powerful Wizard for the Dark Ones, conjures up an apparition who looks like Napolean’s father. He thinks he can use the ghost to shame Napolean for not trying to save his father when Prince Jaegar killed him but his plan backfires when Brooke steps in and saves Napolean.Salvatore and the council of the Dark Ones decide to summon Ademordna, the evil twin of Napolean’s celestial goddess Andromeda by sacrificing first born sons (well, actually the second born since all Dark Ones are born in sets of twins and the first born son is always taken by the Blood Curse) until the god appears and asking him to possess Napolean. They come up with an elaborate scheme and it works.Now the brothers have to figure out a way to save Napolean but their plan involves actually killing Napolean and one of the brothers just for a few moments at the most but it could fail. It’s a very dangerous plan.The bad guys in this series are REALLY bad. This author does not shy away from describing torture and rape which makes my stomach turn but she does evoke my hatred towards the bad guys with it. I have already read the next book. I didn’t even stop to write the review on this book because I was so anxious to get to the next book in the series. Shame on me! www.paranormalromanceslut.com

    Napoleon King of the house of Jadon gets his mate. Goosenumps. I had goosebumps almost through this entire book. "My name is Napoleon but my enemies call me justice" I love that line as well as these vampires. They are a brotherhood, they have ceremonies and rituals, very dark ones and their enemies are very strong and evil. They vampires in these books are very powerful they live up to the word vampire and they deliver biting, blood, death, vengeance and everything else associated with vampires. I especially like the old cant cross the threshhold without invitation vampire side of them!Napolean finds and kidnaps Brooke his bloodmate with the help of Silvisi brothers (shivers) and then convinces her she was born to be their Queen by the mark on her arm. Deep down she knows it. Napoleons enemies invade his body claim Brooke and change her to vampire using his body to rape her while all he can do is try to erase her memory of it. The wizard and youngest brother Nachari sacrifices his life for the king by taking on the dark magic and is now in a state of eternal punishment and torture and there is nothing anyone can do. This was a great part of the story and I cant wait to see what happens to this brother that lost his twin in the beginning of this series. The Queen becomes pregnant and goes on to fulfill her destiny with Napoleon who has so much power and I love that in this series especially over other books I've read that the vampires actually USE all the power they possess as well as their vampire instincts such as mind control, biting, dematerializing and all other things associated with them, it was so enjoyable. My one problem with the book is very specific. I loved it untill Napoleon started singing. I cant stand when males in books create a song or sing. So it says a lot that this book still managed to get a great rating from me. Also there was a great story building that just sort of disappeared. The book did not have a steady pace, sort of up and down but when it was good it was GOOOOOOOD. The Silvisi brothers made this book. Eaqch one made a great appearance and was brooding it was amazing. I really love the dark side of this series its vampires at their best.

    As passionate as I was for the first two books in this series, Blood Possession was an huge disappointment. After reading 78 pages, I started wondering if I was going to be able to finish this book and after finally reaching 322 pages, I had had enough. It came after this sentence... "...while Nathanial leaned against the high countertop containing a sink, a soap dispenser next to a jar of small cotton balls, several unopened syringes, and suture materials." Really? Do I need that much detailed inventory? Of course, this was just one of so many issues I had with this story. Sounds petty to pick this apart, but as I said, this was my last straw.Spoiler:This story was loaded with integrity flaws and IMO, there was absolutely no relationship development between Napolean and Brooke. None! He kidnaps her because he learns she is his destiny. She "...wasn't thrilled with her predicament..." was unaccepting of the relationship, wanted to go home and really feels no draw to him whatsoever. Then after spending a platonic week with him, Napolean is attacked by Ademordna aka Gabe (how was he even able to find Napolean's home when protcted by a spell is unclear), who takes possession of his body wherein he brutally attacks and rapes Brooke AND turns her into a vampire! Miraculously, Napolean is able to remove all memories of this vicious attack from Brooke's mind. However, when she awakens, she doesn't question how she happens to be pregnant. She, what, remembers that she can't remember the attack?! I was not buying the fact that both Napolean and Brooke were accepting of the babies as if the two of them had, in fact, mated. After all, it was Napolean's sperm that impregnated her, not Ademordna's. Really? The fact that Brooke could so easily accept that was ridiculous! I was thoroughly disappointed by Napolean's reaction to all that Brooke went through, even leaving his destiny's bedside to go to the clinic to check on Nachari. Bottomline, he failed miserably at protecting Brooke but hey, not to worry, all is forgiven and, let's move on, shall we?I had major integrity issues throughout this book, but forced myself to keep reading until I just couldn't take it anymore. I remain hopeful for the next book in the series.

    Great Series! Exciting, Entertaining and Eric Dove can Sing! Fantastic Narration! (audible review)This was a very good story. I really enjoyed all if it. These vampires are so awesome and bad a$$! I really liked Brooke she was pretty funny, smart and beautiful. Napoleon was awesome. I am glad the king found his destiny in the 3rd book. The chemistry between the two is good. There is a sex scene, nicely written not BDSM or erotica at all. Actually it was mildly written. The story line and plot were very good. The story flowed very nicely and was very exciting, you just wanted to know what was going to happen next. I like that these Vampires are so powerful. There is quite a bit of dialogue throughout the book. I love lots of dialogue. This is a great series. You really need to start with the first book. And I highly recommend them all so far. Book Two is still my favorite. I really like Marquis's story! As for the narration. It was amazing. I love Eric Dove! He is such a good narrator. All the women sound like women. All the characters have their own distinct voice. He reads with emotion. His reading voice is so soothing and easy on the ears. He actually sang in this book! I swear, it was awesome. This guy can sing too! It was awesome! Loved it!

    Way too complicated for me. Unusual amounts of events based in information not actually shared previously to the reader or explained either. Mostly it just seemed a jumble of stuff without order or sense. Then again I didn't read any of the previous novels so that might be why I was feeling so left out. The romance though...I mean what romance? Where was it? Guy kidnaps girl, enters her mind, finds out her secrets, gets possessed and rapes girl. Girl gets pregnant, falls in love, gives birth and they marry. All in less than a week. Seriously? SERIOUSLY??
