When times are darkest, some vampires desire more than blood …
Vampire prince, Severian Pearce, fears the revelation of the immortal clans to humankind should King Henry fall from power. While in pursuit of Henry’s enemies, Severian comes to the aid of Meridian Neville, a human woman he craves—and not for the scent of her blood …
is torn between honoring her father’s dying wish and
her unexplainable yearning for Lord Severian. But as Severian and Meridian Meridian work together to protect a relic hunted by mortals and immortals alike,
the red veil descends over them. This all-consuming attraction can drive
immortals to the brink of madness. Will the existence of this powerful bond
between a human and a vampire be enough to unite the immortal clans or is the
red veil a scourge set on destroying any chance they might have of happiness?
When all hope is lost, one vampire will fight unto death for his forbidden love.
I am a huge fan of historical romances; I have been ever since I read my first one and that love has not subsided since. However what first drew me to reading and that thrill of new discovery was paranormal romance novels.
Author Elizabeth Marx gives us a wonderful mixture of both in her novel, Descent of Blood, the prequel in the Red Veil Series.
I loved this! It wastwo of my favorite genres together in one book, combining that old world feel, dialect, and ways of the time with vampires, war, lust, and blood. The only thing that could have possibly made it even better is if the men were Scottish and were kilts. LOL
Descent of Blood drew me in from the very start, capturing my attention with
and then with Severian and knowledge of the vampires
and the war that is going on. Meridian
While at times bloody Descent of Blood is the start of an extremely detailed and intriguing world and race of people. I can only image where this series is going to go, but if the prequel is anything to go by then it is going to be amazing.
Overall I really enjoyed Descent of Blood and look forward to picking up book one, Ascent of Blood and seeing how the Red Veil series continues! I would recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a good paranormal romance read and likes historical romance.
