Santos Olaru is a seasoned vampire-warrior and an unforgiving mercenary who protects the descendants of Jadon against all enemies, preternatural or human. He is also a whiz with technology and computers - a virtual ghost in any machine - who uses his unique set of talents to make problems disappear. Until now, Natalia Giovanni has flown beneath his radar, even though she has been following him through cyberspace for years

Blood Web may just be the best book in this series yet. It was gritty, fast-paced, and so unpredictable. I loved every minute of this wild ride!

Marquis Silivasi is an ancient master warrior in the arcane house of Jadon: a clan of lethal vampires living in the Rocky Mountains. Known to be harsh, unyielding, and socially inept, he and his iron core yield to only one person - his destiny, Ciopori Demir. 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.

When you think of Dark Moon Vale and Tessa's vampires, you think suspense, darkness, and plots that leave you on the edge of your seat. Vivid Gothic storytelling. Well now we're getting a glimpse into the author's sense of humor, how versatile her vampires really are, and a wacky Christmas holiday that leaves you craving for more. I love everything about this book!

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.

If you could sum up Blood Betrayal in three words, what would they be?

Pure magical synergy!!It is rare when both an author and a narrator can draw you into a world, bring it to life in fullliving color, and hold you there on the edge of your seat. Cringing. Gasping. Wanting more and more. The characters are 3 dimensional and seem so real. The scenes are stunning. And the story belongs on a big screen in Hollywood, although I wonder if any movie director could bring all this tension, beauty and surprise to life! Hats off to both Eric and Tessa - pure magical synergy.

Would you listen to Zanaikeyros - Son of Dragons again? Why?

Not sure what I was expecting when I picked up this new book, but what I got was action, intrigue, suspense, danger, and some incredibly powerful characters. Wow! The world building in this new series is phenomenal. That alone would suck you in. But it's the great characters, the constant edge of danger and darkness v. light that kept me on the edge of my seat. I will be making this series an auto buy! Loved it!

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.

What made the experience of listening to Blood Ecstasy the most enjoyable?

Phenomenal Storytelling!!!

A phenomenal storyteller does it again with the 8th book in her dark ORIGINAL series. From the first page to the last, I was riveted by this story, seeing, hearing, and feeling everything these characters experienced. I honestly don't know how Tessa Dawn manages to make each new book so fresh and unique and suspenseful, but she does! Another favorite that I will read again and again.

Would you consider the audio edition of Daywalker - The Beginning to be better than the print version?

Daywalker was such a fun and pleasant surprise, watching such a talented author shift from her usual series to a completely new world and character. I wasn't sure what to expect in a new adult story, or to hear it told from first person (instead of third), or to watch the author shift from vampires and dragons to nightwalkers!!! But all I can say is WOW! What incredible talent. I loved every laugh out loud minute of this story! And the narrator did a great job bringing all of the characters to life. Well done.

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.

I enjoyed reading and listening!

Who was your favorite character and why?

Blood Genesis is a bit different from the other Blood Curse Series books because it’s the prequel. It tells readers about the origin of the world Tessa has invented and how it came about. It is poetic, heart wrenching, vivid, and powerful! And Eric Dove does a wonderful job bringing it to life. Kudos to a master storyteller!

Ramsey Olaru is a bona fide bad-ass: a lethal vampire, a seasoned warrior, and a ruthless mercenary in the king's Sentinel Guard. He's accustomed to taking what he wants, ramrodding his way through obstacles, and silencing anything - or anyone - who gets in his way. So when his Gemini Blood Moon reveals Tiffany Matthews as his long-awaited destiny, he sets out to fulfill the demands of the Curse, claiming her as his own, swiftly and definitively.

What did you like best about this story?

Just when you think Tessa Dawn cannot throw you for another loop or make your heart beat out of your chest one more time, she does just that! And boy does she ever. This story has it all. Danger, intrigue, passion, fear, love, loyalty, heartache, character growth and development, you name it. I was glued to my audible app, hanging on every word. And when Eric Dove sings House of the Rising Sun at the end. Oh, be still my beating heart! These two have created an epic experience in the Blood Curse Series, and I for one am hooked!!!

I thought Blood Redemption was my favorite...until now. This story just has it all. A troubled hero whose wounds run deep, a strong female lead who has survived the unimaginable and a game changing battle between species that has been brewing for a really long time. Heart break. Revenge. Self-discovery. Brotherhood. Edge of your seat suspense...and family, family, FAMILY. WOW! Blood Father is nothing short of a masterpiece, and the narrator does it justice.

Saber Alexiares is no ordinary vampire. He is like a cruel, fire-breathing dragon. Reared in the bowels of the colony by Dark Ones, he has no conscience, no compassion, and no saving grace. Captured by the enemy, he is sentenced to execution by sunlight only to discover that his body will not burn - he isn't who he thought he was. He was stolen at birth. He was reared by the wrong house. And the sunlight isn't going to kill him because he does have a soul.

Where does Blood Redemption rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I love this Blood Curse series!! They are all incredible?

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

The battle for good versus evil is intrinsic in this book. The story grabs you and never lets go from the very first page. Wow! Just wow! The author takes you so deep into the characters minds, hearts and struggles while moving the action so seamlessly that you almost forget to breathe. This is an absolute keeper. I will listen again and again.
