 Since the night of her brutal attack and unwilling transformation to vampire, Merit’s stood as Sentinel and protector of Chicago’s Cadogan House. She's saved the Windy City from the forces of darkness time and again with her liege and lover, Ethan Sullivan, by her side.

When the House is infiltrated and Merit is attacked by a vampire seemingly under the sway of dark magic, Merit and Ethan realize the danger is closer than they could have ever imagined. As a malign sorcery spreads throughout the city, Merit must go to war against supernatural powers beyond her comprehension. It’s her last chance to save everything—and everyone—she loves.

“Forever.” Enter the final chapter to the epic journey we have been taken on with The Chicagoland Vampires...

When we left Ethan and Merit, they were preparing for their nuptials, and forever loving one another. The night before the big “night” Merit is attacked by a crazed vampire in her own home. This is no ordinary or small incident, and it opens up an old problem to the soon to be newlyweds. Instead of happily ever after, Ethan and Merit are about to face a big fight that is threaten to destroy Chicago and all it's residents. Magic is a fickle bitch and Mallory along with her cute as ever hubby Catcher come charging in for the rescue. What better way to close out this series than to have Merit fight side by side with her bestie witch Mallory? As Cadogan House prepares for battle, they are pleasantly surprised who comes out of the wood works to help. All the while, Ethan and Merit struggle with Gabriel's vision of them baring a child. Without a gleam of hope of that ever happening, they must face the reality that the prophecy Gabriel once told them would never come to pass, and that they may not survive this new threat.

Coming in knowing this was going to be the last book, every sentimental scene I read had me in tears. Sharing the special moments between friends, and lovers, ones that I will never read about anymore felt like home but had me on edge knowing we were going to part ways. The story line and plot were well done with wrapping up the series, the ending fell flat for me as far the battle. The build up to the challenge was so gripping but then it just ended with a poof instead of a BANG! But I do have to say the epilogue was tremendously adorable, and I think maybe even made up for the lack of strike in my bite.

Audiobook Review On Blood War, Blood Destiny #8

Rated it

 Death has come to Le-Ath Veronis. A would-be assassin, aiming at Lissa, kills someone close to her instead. A price has been placed on Lissa's head by Black Mist, an assassin's guild who have been paid by a reassembled Solar Red. Throw in a spin-off religion, betrayal, a misguided kidnapping and the Five-Year Conclave for the Reth Alliance, and you have the seeds of war.

Queen Lissa is in for a bloody and emotional war, is she prepared?

Situations have been building up to an impeding war, and something more with Lissa, and now the other shoe has finally dropped. With so much conflict spanning over many different planets, how is Lissa supposed to keep order?! Her power is mighty but she is only one, the one that was meant to calm all the chaos...but how?

From the moment we found out Lissa was more than a vampire and had a seriously outrageous destiny, I knew nothing but trouble was coming. From the time Lissa was born she has had nothing but heart ache, pain and suffering at the hands of “loved ones”, even now, as Queen, she is still forced to eat shit. I've had to suffer in silence over the injustice that has befallen my friend Lissa over the eight books in this series so far and my heart has just about given up on hope. Lissa's father is at the heart of all her woes, and he is on everyone's shit list now a days. When Lissa finally reaches that emotional point of despair, that is when she will discover and unleash the ultimate power she's been capable of, and that is when all the wrongs will be righted, or she'll just say fuck it and be gone! Either way, look out enemies of my enemy.

The upcoming war, and Lissa's future has me on pins and needles, and if it wasn't for life getting in the way, I would be binge listening to the very last book. I can't even begin to imagine how Lissa's story will end, but man ol' man, if I know this author, it will be a doozie! Strap on your big girl panties, cause heads will roll!

Narrator Review

Traci Odom continues as the narrator for the Blood Destiny Series, and I am still in love with her :) She is the most amazing and talented performer that I have thoroughly enjoyed listening to. There are narrators then there are story tellers, and Traci will just blow you away with the way she delivers this story of a lifetime to you.

Have you ever fallen in love with a book boyfriend? 
Naomi Douglas did.
From the moment Naomi met Joe, she claimed him as her own.
Depressed and lonely, Naomi’s fascination with Joe quickly turns to obsession. 

Naomi Douglas lives a sad and mundane life, divorced, distant from her parents and her only sibling lives in another country. She has no one but the books she edits for a living, and Joseph her fictional boyfriend. As Naomi continues to get deeper into this author's world, Joe is becoming more and more real to her. Is she going crazy or has Naomi stumbled onto something magical and beyond her wildest dreams?

Naomi has fallen into a fantasy trap that we all have from time to time, wishing that the man in a romance novel we were reading was real. They are always written to fit the heroine like a glove. They know just what to say, when to say it, and are unbelievably gorgeous. But Naomi's broken and lonely heart allows her imagination to take it further than ever before. She begins re-writing another authors work for her own personal happiness. She writes herself in as the heroine, and Joe is her lover. At first she tells herself that it's just to help her start writing her own work again, but we all know that's not what's going on here. When her desires begin to collide with reality, that is when the real fun begins.

Naomi is a truly relateable character. I can't tell you how many book boyfriends I have fantasized about, and wished that they were real, or that they could be real. In my case that would be never because they are always vampires or shifters, lol. At times I felt like I was walking in Naomi's shoes! The similarities were uncanny, which made parts of the book hard for me to read. Joe's character was designed to be ideal and he was. He could melt the panties off of any woman! The conflict between Naomi and her mother and sister were spot on for how most mothers and daughters get along, that's for sure. Each character involved played a crucial role for Naomi's story and they played them very well.

The story was fantastic! It was original, and God help me it was too close for comfort at times for me. Sometimes I did feel like the author had jumped into my brain and plucked out my deepest darkest desires. The only “spoiler” I will reveal is that it has a cliffhanger. I loath cliffhangers, but if I didn't then that would mean I didn't enjoy the book, and I loved it!
