Blood Ties Book Two: Possession

My father always said fear was a weakness. Well, that's easy to say when you don't have to worry about vampire slayers or holy water. I hate fear, but undead life goes on.

Publisher's Summary

My father always said fear was a weakness. Well, that's easy to say when you don't have to worry about vampire slayers or holy water. I hate fear, but undead life goes on. In the two months since I was attacked in the hospital morgue and turned into a vampire, I've killed my evil sire, Cyrus, fallen in love with my new sire, Nathan, and have even gotten used to drinking blood. Just when things are finally returning to normal (as normal as they can be when sunlight can kill you) Nathan becomes possessed. And then he slaughters an innocent human.

Now it's my job to find Nathan before the Voluntary Vampire Extinction Movement does, because they're just waiting for an excuse to terminate him and anyone foolish enough to help him. But it gets worse. It turns out that Nathan's been possessed by one of the most powerful and wicked vampires alive: the Soul Eater. And who knows what vile plan he's concocted?

With the Soul Eater and my possessed sire on the loose, I have a lot to fear. Including being killed. Again.

Don't miss the rest of the Blood Ties series, including Book One, The Turning, Book Three, Ashes to Ashes, and Book Four, All Souls' Night.

    "Blood Ties Book Two: Possession"

    Second in Jennifer Armintrout’s contemporary vampire series, Possession, was read by Elena Stauffer. First, Elena did a good job. She has a pleasant tone, natural inflection and good pacing. She made the book enjoyable to listen to.

    A blend of perspectives, Carrie, Max and Cyrus; I most enjoyed Cyrus, once vicious, uber-evil, much feared vampire, now resurrected mortal, as he regained his humanity. I felt his confusion, his fluctuating between monster and remourseful man was well done. One would assume he’d be conflicted.

    Max, Nathan’s closest friend, was fun, and rather sexy in a thwarted bad boy kind of way. His mission, find Nathan, before the gorgeous female werewolf assassin did. His problem, beyond Nathan’s situation, was that the assassin wasn’t falling for any of his attempts at distraction, and to make matters worse, he wasn’t able to seduce or joke his way into her good graces. Poor Max.

    As for Carrie’s part. Yes, she was the protagonist, but I found some of her adventure was a little pointless, especially in the face of Cyrus’ inner turmoil and Max’s sexual/humorous misadventures. I would have liked to have seen her encounter more resistance, or something... I did appreciate her ongoing love/hate feelings toward Cyrus and Nathan though. Anyone would find her situation gave them mixed signals.

    To summarize. One could read this as a stand alone I suppose, although, having enjoyed Blood Ties - Book One: The Turning so much I would suggest they be read in order.

    I also intend to pick up Book Three: Ashes to Ashes when it's released. I hope you try and enjoy this series as well.

    "The first one was better"

    This book was good enough to move on to the third book. I really expected more. I was afraid it would just be an intermediary book that really went no where and it was. In the end, I was really glad I read it. She captured the essence of the characters' struggles and segued nicely into the next book. These books read like vampire books, not romance novels. Some other authors I've read have little more than mushy emotional nonsense with fangs. I am really impressed with this author's ability to build complex and likeable characters. An author has succeeded when he or she generates an emotional response. She was successful.

    "Friends dont let friends..."

    well, as in the first book, it gets a bit silly and the high pitched mickey mouse voices of the enemies make it hard to take them seriously. I dont have the heart, ears or wallet to read book 3. You read it and tell me the painful events I missed.

    "It was Ok..."

    The story line was ok but I felt the dialog was repetitive and not particularly interesting.

    There were really few surprises after listening to the first two books in this series.

    I chose to not listen to any of the other series books, as I can't imagine that I would feel much different.

    But I would say it is an OK read.

    "Blase..."

    I should have known that this would be more about relationships between the characters than about action, since this is a Harlequin published book, but really. The characters seem to want to talk out their problems more than fight them out. Who knew that vampires and werewolves were so "human"?

    This book tries to redeem "Cyrus", one of the self-loathing villains from the first book, but turns him into a sappy, new-age foo-foo, from the dangerous, sexy, but amoral vampire that he was.

    The book leaves you with a lot of unresolved plot lines, and quite openly leaves you waiting for a sequel for resolution. I was kind of reduced to listening just to know how it turns out, rather than actually enjoying the book itself.

    "Unusual"

    Lots of twists and turns in the plot and left me wanting to read book 3.

    "Love It!"
    What did you love best about Blood Ties Book Two?

    This is a great series. I am really enjoying the story of Carrie and how she's interacting with the other characters that are introduced.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This book had it all: funny, sad, and all in between.
