I literally had to stop a few times and remind myself to breathe during this story. Another amazing tale written by Tessa Dawn and brought to life by Eric Dove. This book is full of action, suspense, mystery, action, heart breaking and heart warming moments and some serious sexy on the side. If you are a fan of the Blood Curse Series you NEED this in your library.
And the ending??? WOW!! Can't wait for the next one, I think I will listen to this one again.

In the decades since an innocent human slave was taken to Castle Dragon against her will, for the sole purpose of bearing a son for the monarchy, much has changed in the Realm: Alliances made in secret have flourished; sons born of veiled paternity have grown to adulthood; and dangerous warlocks, seasoned witches, and cunning shades have risen to powerful positions. Yet all is not as it seems. Beneath the shadow of an eerie double moon, a dark, tormented evil is rising....

I was so excited to get this second installment of the series. Just when I thought things couldn’t get more intense I was proved wrong. There were twists and turns around every corner. The story is so engaging I felt like I was there with the characters. If you’re into dark and dangerous you will love this book!

Marquis Silivasi is an ancient master warrior in the arcane house of Jadon: a clan of lethal vampires living in the Rocky Mountains.

The beautiful, ancient princess can bend Marquis's will - and melt the vampire's heart - with nothing more than a crook of her finger. She owns the keys to his soul. Only this year, at Christmas, she has gone too far...she has meddled in vampire-human affairs.

Fans of the Blood Curse Series will not want to miss this! We are used to our friends in Dark Moon Vale being a bit serious. Well, this is the other side, it's laugh out loud, "I can't believe this is happening" and some "YOWZA" thrown in.

So much fun! We get to see our favorites enjoying a holiday with some serious mishaps along the way. Tessa Dawn's unique gift of storytelling shines through and our awesome narrator Eric Dove does amazing as always.

Don't miss out on what will soon be a favorite!

As a ruthless sentinel sworn to protect the ancient Vampyr king and the house of Jadon, he has "HOJ" literally inscribed on his heart: a heart that was tragically broken centuries earlier, when human hunters slayed his mother and Dark Ones murdered his father. Having survived the unthinkable, he never dreamed he would come this close to another human predator, let alone a female pretending to be his destiny.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Absolutely! I recommend the entire series. The books build on each other, the characters are fantastic and the story line is engaging.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I love them all but, my oh my that Saxson had me at hello!

What does Eric G. Dove bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Eric is dynamic as the voice of Saxson. The dimension he gives all the characters is wonderful, he can bring you right into the story and hold you there.

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

I cried, cringed, laughed and screamed in fury. It has it all, the relationships are incredible so I felt the emotions of all of the characters. Bring your Kleenex and prepare to have your jaw hang open a few times.

Any additional comments?

Don't skip this book, it's everything you've come to expect from a Tessa Dawn book and more. She ventures into places that you would not think of and it leaves you wanting more. Brilliant!

I'm a huge fan of Kristen Ashley and her stories so I loved the book when I read it. I was anticipating this one in audio. To my utter surprise I hated the narrator. Sometimes Amy sounded like she was sophisticated and other times she sounded like a thug. It wasn't cohesive at all. Too monotone and just boring. So while I loved the story , unfortunately the way it was read ruined the enjoyment for me.

What made the experience of listening to Zanaikeyros - Son of Dragons the most enjoyable?

The suspense and intensity of the story. There are so many "edge of your seat" moments that I was just so drawn into the book.

What did you like best about this story?

There are so many things that I love about this story but, I have to say that the bad guys were so captivating. The not knowing of what was coming made this story awesome for me. The sons of dragons and their world was also so descriptive and interesting that I just wanted more.

What does Eric G. Dove bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

His ability to bring each character to life. Each with their own unique personality. Everyone is distinct.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

There were several but, I'd have to say when Jordan finally understands what it means to be reborn.

Any additional comments?

Tessa Dawn is my favorite author so when this new series came out I knew it'd be amazing. I was not disappointed by this first book. For anyone that enjoys dark urban fantasy, exceptional storytelling and lots of intense and suspenseful moments, this book is for you. Can't wait for the next one!!!

Julien Lacusta is a troubled soul, born into tragic circumstances, and raised in a violent time. Despite being a Master Warrior in the house of Jadon, and one of the most elite trackers the Vampyr have ever seen, he is damaged to the core: tormented by endless shadows, haunted by unseen ghosts. And he knows - by all the celestial gods he knows - that if he ever releases those demons, the beasts that lurk within, there will be hell, fire, and brimstone to pay.

Half-Moon Hollow's supernatural social event of the season - Zeb's Titanic-themed werewolf wedding - is coming up, and Dick Cheney (not that Dick Cheney!) needs a date. But Andrea's had enough of clever, handsome, and rakish to last a lifetime, and Dick Cheney is certainly not the sort of man you bring home to mom (not that Andrea's deadist parents are speaking to her ever since she dropped out of college and became a blood surrogate).
