"The sight of three naked, bloody men wandering into the clearing with moonlight clouding their eyes would probably send anyone else running for their life. I just sighed and watched them walk toward me."
As the first female vampire successfully turned in 700 years, Lissa finds herself in demand by the Vampire Aristocracy. Forced into an unexpected engagement as a result, Lissa feels trapped and stifled as she continues training with her surrogate sire. When a request comes from the Grand Master of the werewolves, Weldon Harper, Lissa leaps at the opportunity to work as his bodyguard once more.
Wlodek, Head of the Vampire Council, in an effort to solidify vampire/werewolf relations, allows Lissa to provide protection for the Grand Master during his yearly travels across the U.S. The only vampire ever named Pack, Lissa is permitted to work with the Grand Master without supervision from others of her kind.
Things become complicated and then downright deadly as old enemies reemerge. Intent on exacting revenge for a failed coup against the Grand Master, rogue werewolves join with new and perilous allies. Now, Lissa must find a way not only to keep the werewolf race alive, but the vampires as well.
OMG! This book has a serious cliffhanger, so there, I warned you.
The second book in the Blood Destiny series, Blood Passage, starts where Blood Wager left off. Lissa is in Merrill's care as her surrogate sire, teaching her the ways of the vampire and what not. Gavin also returns, trying to woo Lissa and gain her trust back.
Lissa discovers new things she can do with her abilities, of course at the wrong time, and keeps most of what she discovers about her vampire powers a secret for fear of what the vampire counsel might do to her. On top of that, the werewolf pack she was honored into calls upon her for another security detail as the grand master tours the U.S. on business. This is when all hell breaks loose in the book and the action doesn't stop, even at the very end, hence, the cliffhanger.
I felt serious concern for the characters, multiple times. This is how involved I am already and it's only book two of the series! Lissa's character means a great deal to me. When the friendships she develops with the other characters become harmed or threatened, it feels so real, it's as if I was a part of their world too.
So, if you like the first book and are getting ready to read the second one and are reading my review, know that you should just go ahead and buy the third book now, because when you hit that cliffhanger, you are going to want to start the third book right away! Happy reading! Enjoy cause I sure as hell did!
