This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
Before there was a modern-day town called Dark Moon Vale, there was an ancient kingdom nestled in the Transylvanian Alps. Before there was a primordial species called the Vampyr, there was a celestial race begotten of gods and men. Before light battled shadow, the sacrifice became mandatory, or the first Blood Moon adorned the celestial sky... There was The Curse. A punishment. An abomination. The ultimate act of vengeance. And it was placed upon a people so corrupted by their thirst for blood and dominion that they awakened the souls of the slain and became the souls of the damned: Young, beautiful, and in the prime of her life, Jessenia Groza is not ready to die. Yet she has been condemned by Prince Jaegar's men, slated as a sacrifice to the gods. Timaos Silivasi would gladly risk everything - his power, his privilege, his celestial heart - to save his one true love, but fate has a plan of its own... For this couple. For this civilization. For this lost race of warriors, who will never be the same. Every legend has a beginning... BLOOD GENESIS: prequel to the Blood Curse Series Discover the "Extraordinary Storytelling Talents" of Tessa Dawn, the #1 bestselling author of the Blood Curse Series ~ Dark Fantasy & Gothic Romance at its best. (Quote by Midwest Book Review)
It's all about the curse
If you think you know the story of the Blood Curse, trust me, you don’t…
Long before Dark Moon Vale there was a time of death, betrayal, vengeance and a love so strong that not even a brother drenched in madness could quell it. Nothing will prepare you for the emotional ride Tessa Dawn takes you on. Rich in texture and beauty with equal parts darkness and pain, this tale is not for the weak, it is no fairytale however, there’s beauty in the pain that is reflected through the story. As with any book written by the incredibly talented Tessa Dawn, when you read the last page you yearn for more.
If Dark Fantasy is what you enjoy, journey back to a time where Kings ruled, brothers divided, no woman was safe and innocence was lost…forever.
Blood Genesis is the prequel to the Blood Curse Series and is a must-have for devoted readers and new readers alike. Pick it up today, and get ready to experience what it’s like to know the Blood Curse.
The blood curse series introduction
Blood Genesis is a beautifully--written intro to an amazing series. Tessa really brings the past and the Curse to life in this short but powerful novella. So many emotions in just a few short pages. I'm so glad she's given us an extra glimpse into the one- of-a-kind world she created.
Blood Genesis...Great place for new readers to start!
We always hear about stories that capture the imagination. As readers, we long to come across those fantastic tales that engage our minds and touch our hearts. We want to be pulled into those worlds and feel as if we are just as much a part of what is happening as the characters. After six novels, Tessa Dawn has proven to be a master storyteller by taking us into the lives, hearts and minds of the vampires of Dark Moon Vale and now she has done it again by taking us into the heart of the very curse that brought those wonderful characters to us.
Blood Genesis is a well-crafted short story that allows readers, both loyal fans and new, a glimpse into the origins of the Blood Curse that plagues the lives of the vampires we have grown to love. Through this tale we learn more about the brothers, Jadon and Jaegar, patriarchs of the great vampire houses and the architects of the events that led to the world we know today in Dark Moon Vale. As with all of her work, Tessa’s words allow us to feel the fear, the anger and the love that exists in the world she has created, only this time…those feelings exist in the ancient lands during a time of war and darkness. This prequel is a great starting point for new readers to the Blood Curse series. And trust me, once you’ve finished, you’ll be craving more.
