Book 6, Blood Curse Series
This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
Kagen Silivasi is a powerful, ancient vampire with a unique gift for healing – he is also a son, a brother, and a loner who has survived unspeakable tragedy and loss: Beneath his handsome, well-mannered exterior lies an alter ego consumed by rage and an overwhelming impulse to “kill them all…”
Arielle Nightsong is a brave human, a rebel spirit, and an accomplished healer in her own right. Born into a harsh world of violence, cruelty, and danger, she was enslaved at the age of ten and given as a gift to the most depraved being in Mhier – the infamous king of the lycans. If not for her enduring friendship with a captive vampire, she might not have survived to escape the slave encampment…or to discover her mysterious role in an ancient Blood Curse.
When Kagen and his brothers voyage into Mhier in search of their long lost father, it will take more than stealth and cunning to get out alive: Secrets will be revealed; loyalties will be tested; and an indomitable spirit will fracture beneath the weight of an impossible choice.
BLOOD FATHER ~ where destiny and duty collide.
I thought I was ready....
I thought I was ready....
Little did I know there was nothing that could've prepared me for this story. I've waited with anticipation for this book since the moment I met Kagen Silivasi in Blood Destiny. I felt a connection to him and as the series progressed so did that connection. So when the moment came that we found out just what changed Kagen's life the breath was knocked out of me. I felt the crack in my heart and yelled at the words on the page as I cried. I felt every emotion play out as I read through the pages of Blood Father, the intense hatred, the overwhelming fear of loss and the soul lifting feelings of love. This book has it all. As anyone that has journeyed through the pages of Dark Moon Vale you know these stories are not for the faint of heart, Blood Father is definitely no exception to that. It's dark, violent, gut-wrenching and intense. But, as only Tessa can do, she weaves humor and light through those dark times too. So much so I found myself laughing out loud while shaking my head. And there is a scene that is one of the most poignantly beautiful moments I have ever read on a page. To say the story and author are brilliant doesn't really do either justice in my opinion. From the credits to the very last word I was 100% invested, yes, it really is that good.
There are many amazing reviews that tell you the story, give you a synopsis of the plot and characters, I can't write that kind of review, I truly believe that you as the reader should experience this book (and the entire series) for yourself. Tessa Dawn is such an incredibly gifted story teller you will not want to leave Dark Moon Vale.
Did it meet my expectations after waiting for so long ?, Not only did it meet my expectations, Blood Father blew them out of the water. I knew it would mean something to me to read this book, in the end, it meant everything. Thank you Tessa for delivering one of the most amazing books I have ever read.
Dark Fantasy at its FINEST!!
Over the last 2 days I have tried to write a review worthy of this novel. I've read each book in the Blood Curse series, a couple of them TWICE, and even with my love of Blood Destiny and Blood Shadows, while I have connected to all of the books in some way, none were as intense as Blood Father. This book, this novel, this story...everything...was simply brilliant. There is a shared sense of longing, brotherhood, loyalty and strength among the men of the House of Jadon, particularly with the Silivasi brothers. Until now, I had no understanding of the added pain and angst experienced by Kagen.
It is Tessa Dawn's ability to show those emotions and make the reader feel them that makes Blood Father such an amazing novel! Kagen's journey, both the internal and the external journey with his brother's, is very similar to the conflicts that many of us have experienced. But imagine carrying that conflict for centuries. Imagine carrying it with no true understanding of why it's happening. THAT is the brilliance of Tessa Dawn. The ability to humanize these powerful men, these...vampires...is what makes this series such a delight to read. While each story is a struggle to overcome an Ancient Curse, while each tale involves love, desire, conflict, action and humor...there's that piece of humanity dangling in front of us that helps us identify with each character.
I connected with Kagen and Arielle Nightsong in a much different way than the others. There were moments when I laughed...literally out loud! There were moments when I wished for someone to...well...get what they truly deserved. And there were moments when tears welled and I cheered. That's the ride you take with a Blood Curse novel. And with Blood Father...you will absolutely want to buckle up!
Set some time aside for this one! You will not want to put it down!
Vampires and Lycans in alternate universe...
Tessa Dawn has taken us on another wild and unbelievable (makes you feel it's real when you are reading) voyage into dark fantasy. In this book, The Silivasi's must travel to an alternate universe to find and rescue their long believed dead father, knowing they may not return.
What they find is so much more than they ever dreamed, especially, Kagen Silivasi?
Tessa's intricate details and clear explanations of every thing that is happening makes you feel everything, including wanting to run for your own life. Just plan on staying up all night reading....I absolutely recommend this best seller to all who crave and love dark fantasy!
