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!
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.
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!
I really enjoy the world of books! Narration just add layers to that world... don't u think? :)
This book was anything but cute... intense is more like it... but the whole vampire queen and a demon son prophecy was cute.
Nice story that follows to partners of the Shadow Hunters, who fight like cats and dogs... come across a succubus that awakens their locked powers. Our heroes are soul mates and literally go into mating frenzy for like 4 days...
This is bad for all kinds of reasons... so they try to be apart...but that don't work either...
Secrets are revealed and walla... Good o'l vampire fight, demon battle and re-claiming a mate ensues! Great... Can't wait for book 2!
Narration was really good. No complaints.
Great Credit or sale..I wouldn't buy unless you plan to invest in all the book in the series and since only one book is on audible... I would just wait for credit.
Nurse, mom, loved to read....but now I love to listen. When I retire I hope to hear waves crashing in 1 ear and audible in the other!
See above....Sexy, hot and great!
Micah and Ella...As a team they are fun..as a couple they are fierce! Love 'em!
This is a first listen for this narrator and she did a great job!
The sex scenes were awesome....you could really feel their love.
Waiting impatiently on 2 and 3!
I really didn't expect much from this book, so I was pleasantly surprised by my inability to stop listening! I can't say that it is the most polished book I've ever read, but any faults are forgivable due to the captivating plot.
Based on the book's description, I was a bit worried that the Shadow Agency would turn out to be a police force type of thing and the book might be a bit like a crime novel (which I personally detest), but this is not the case. So, if you too share my fears of boring police talk, fear not!
Another thing that's a book killer for me, is when the main couple gets too sweet. You start to feel like the awkward third wheel with an overly cute couple, and frankly it makes me want to gag a bit. This didn't happen either! I really liked the couple, especially since they were balanced. There wasn't one who was oh so super special compared to the other. They could both kick ass.
Basically, this was a fun, sexy, action packed, paranormal romance. It's not perfect, and sometimes things seemed to happen to easily for my taste, but in the end it's more like untapped potential rather than an annoyance. So, if you like paranormal romance you will undoubtably enjoy this one too!
WARNING: if you don't like sex in books, stay away from this one. Also, there's a cliffhanger at the end. Why are the book gods so cruel!
Reading is a must-have ESCAPE...
The story between the two half-human paranormal characters, Ella & Micah, evolves from delightful squabbles into full-on lustful chemistry fairly early on. Once past their internal struggles over their unexpected bonding, they then have to deal with outside conflicts as well. Namely, Ella's sire and gran-sire, play major antagonists. During a time when the paranormal genre is flooded, "Blood Lust Rising" was refreshing, engaging, and titillating. Have to agree with an earlier reviewer, I would have happily grabbed the next edition had it been available. Truly a fun read... see this on my re-read/listen list.
Liona Gem's narrative was impeccably done save Castro's character. Gem's interpretation really enhanced the audio.
Hot romance/Sci Fi we're so lucky to have Audible to feed our book addictions. I love walking my precious dog Sydney & listening to my books
I'm loving Demons and Vampires a whole lot with this very Steamy listen. Lot's of action and Hot Sex throughout the entire book. I would of given a 5 star but all though I found the Narrator good I feel with a more enthusiastic Narrator the story could of been told so much better. This book is only the beginning with the story ending abruptly so it leaves us waiting for the next book to see what happens next. I will be grabbing it as soon as it comes out :)
