Vampire Queen and demon son - together they will wreak havoc and total destruction. Or at least, that's what the prophecy says. When a sex-seething succubus focuses in on Ella Grey, a half-breed vampire and her Shadow Hunting partner, Micah McGregor, a power is released neither can control or comprehend.
A chain of events is triggered, forcing Ella and Micah down a shadowed path riddled with unrestrained passion, violence and betrayal. The truth of Micah's demonic origins will reveal a heart-breaking conspiracy within the Shadow Agency that once swore to protect humanity from vampires and demons. Ella and Micah are proof that nothing is as it appears.

Busy mom who loves to read but doesn't always have the time. I enjoy YA, Romance and the occasional Best Seller.
This is a non-stop thrill ride from the moment the story starts. Ella and Micah have so much chemistry!! Their fighting and back-and-forth banter was not only entertaining, but down right sexy. I was immediately drawn into the story from the very beginning and couldn't put this one down. I was all too disappointed when it came to an abrupt stop. I want more!!! This is a great paranormal romance book that reminded me of the older Anita Blake books (back when the series was good). I loved this one and can’t wait for the next installment.
I'm proud to be a bookaholic...addicted, obsessed, passionate!!! My favorite way to relax & escape reality....
Blood Lust Rising is hot, fast-paced, enticing, intense but also fun and full of vampire and demon action! From the very beginning the book pulls you into this fantastic world from the very first chapter and doesn't let you down until the last. Blood Lust Rising has a unique plot and good world-building, a good romance story line and realistic characters. I really fell in love with the characters of this book.
Ella and Micah are demon/vampire hunters. They have to work & train together. Ella is convinced that Micah is out to get her kicked out of the agency they work for. Micah thinks Ella is dangerous. Both are all ways picking at each other and fighting. The tension between them is intense. Ella and Micah kick some major ass in some cringe worthy fight scenes. The characters came to life on the page. By the end of the first chapter I was already a little in love with Micah and Ella both. I would be hard pressed to say which one I liked better. The chemistry between the two of them was sizzling; seriously tingle worthy. I refuse to divulge any more info so I can ensure I don't spoil the book for you.
Overall this read didn’t let me down one bit and met my expectations, I can’t really think of any negatives comments except that I wish it had been longer, but that is just me being greedy for more steamy Micah and Ella action! I hope audible picks up book two of this series soon!
I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again
Right from Chapter 1 - it's BANG and you're transported headlong into a thrilling, action-packed listen that'll have you spinning, reeling and cringing at the awesome storyline that contains a multitude of paranormal entities, intrigue, mystery, secrets, plot twists and a hot sexy romance between the likeable H/H whose chemistry was 'off the charts' right from the start and only got more and more intense.
You'll find yourselves drawn, or should I say thrown, into all the well written action as Ella and Micah's bitter-sweet love/hate relationship begins and you'll be entertained by the funny banter between the two uncompromising enemies. Then, throw in a 'supposed' Succubus coupled with 4 missing days of sexual pleasure and they awake on a blood (and other bodily fluids) soaked bed and absolute chaos follows the H/H as their worlds, lives and beliefs have been changed forever.... along with some soul shattering news.
A wonderful cast of characters inhabit the well developed world set around a Prophecy about Ella and Micah, and together they must fight - fight for their lives, the lives of loved ones and their love. It's an unpredictable, non-stop, fast-paced, roller-coaster ride that'll spew you out at the end panting and exhausted but having been thoroughly entertained and desperately ready for more, more more and not just because it has an ongoing storyline but because it's just soooo YUMMY.
Worth a credit? If you're a PNR fan then this is an unmissable 'must have' beginning to a new exciting trilogy that's got Vampires, Werewolves, Succubus, Shape-Shifters, Demons and, of course Hunters so you get plenty of fangs for your bucks and it's a WELL WORTH IT credit score.
I've always been a avid reader so now I'm a avid listener. I prefer the paranormal genre but I do like to switch things up. It's boring if you don't have variety. Of course I do love the romance and the hotter the better. Also, you can't beat a good thriller filled with suspense and a ending you can't even guess at until the very end.
Just prepare yourself for this one because it's HOT. The chemistry between these two main characters is scorching. I do love a story when the characters cannot control their sexual desire and Micah and Ella are loaded with it. Then lets throw in the continuous battles with the bad guys. This was a paranormal story just the way I enjoy it and I'm looking foward to more from this author. For me this was a credit well spent.
I'm a grad student with very little time to edit reviews because I'm editing research papers. Forgive the typos. They're made with love.
This is basic story writing. Two people start at a point in their journey where something happens and they have to deal with the consequences, even if they don't like it.
Instead of actually showing a developing relationship, what we get is the heroine and the hero being forced to want to sex each other up all the time and, since we were told what we missed (or what was simply left out of the book), we know they train for combat together. Apparently the idea of being together repulses them and they do whatever they can to avoid each other. But that doesn't work because they just have to have sex. All the time.
It's weird... like coming into the story after half of it has already happened. The back story seems interesting enough that I feel like I missed something. Like a prequel, or what should have been the first book. We just jump headlong into the pre-climax and soon, climaxes are all we are given. See what I did there?
I'm not gunna lie, I kind of wanted to give this book a 2. The sex scenes aren't even very hot, they're just descriptive enough to be scandalous but with book seems to suffer with trying to figure out what it wants to be.
I will listen to NO boring book. Old Fav's,Card, King , Hobb. New Fav's, Hill, Scalzi, Sawyer, Interested in Lansdale, Crouch, Konrath
OR WAS IT BECAUSE I WAS COVERED IN BLOOD.
This is some kind of psychedelic dreamy writing. Devlin is like interpreting her dreams, her sex dreams. Like a dream, it does not follow any pattern. It is easy to see why Fayth Devlin does not use her real name. I would not want to claim this either. The language is all descriptive and flowery and includes visions of her getting laid. She often wakes up in places she has never been before and she does not know how she got there and then she remembers, oh yea, I was screwing this demon and his hard on was big and he filled me, ramming me harder and harder, but ...
THE ONLY PERSON IN MY HEAD WAS ME.
WAS I INSIDE HIS MIND?
The narrator talks in a whispery voice, as the script calls for.
World altering love
Ella and Micah
Never have I had an audiobook have overlaying of the reading. What an amazing touch that was soooo cool! She adds a great twist to the characters giving them life and their pieces really came together how I imagined when I had read the book.
It was very good
I read this book and was sooooo in love with the book thy when Fayth gave me the audio I was very excited to hear it. It made my work days pass very quickly and my workouts exciting lol!
All I need is tea and a good story.
Blood Lust Rising is one of the best novels that I have read in a while. Fayth Devlin has created an amazing story of vampires, demons, lust, jealousy, sex, nail biting suspense, humor, and did I mention sex? I could not put this book down and I loved every minute of it. I want more of this story. It was excellent
Story needed to move along faster. There was a lot of sex between main characters but not many questions answered.
Narration was good.
The world building is badly done. We never get a sense for the rules governing vampires and demons, or even how the organization to which the main characters belong functions. The characters lack intelligence, can't prioritize and hold pointless inner monologues about self-hatred and self-recrimination. Most of the book is taken up by sexual tension, but it is not well integrated in a story. All in all, a disappointment. The performance is well done, however.
