If you could sum up Daywalker - The Beginning in three words, what would they be?

Fast , fun, emotional .........wow

What was one of the most memorable moments of Daywalker - The Beginning?

When Lacey came to terms with what she is and what she wanted to do......she knew the truth and she knew what she wanted to do!!!

Have you listened to any of Emily Beresford’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

First time and I am very very impressed ....she WAS Lacy .

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

Make me laugh and smile that this little girl found her way into a world of night walkers where she was a Daywalker and she wanted IN!

Any additional comments?

I sure hope we make a series out of this......Tessa u rocked it again.

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.

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

I would recommend this book to all my friends...Even if you have read or listened to any of Tessa's books in the Blood Curse Series Blood Genesis really brings out raw and powerful emotions.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Jessenia, so scared, so noble and so in love .... Oh my gosh I felt here every emotion.....

Which scene was your favorite?

Without giving spoiler...in the end when Jessenia realizes Timaos is there with her...I actually feel her relief!

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

Laugh no, cry yes but also I have more understanding of the blood curse and I enjoyed seeing a young Napoleon and seeing Marquis and his brothers thru Jessenias eyes.

Any additional comments?

Considering this was not a full length audio book it packed in a whole lot of emotion !!!

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.

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

A Rollercoaster Ride .... Tessa brings out every bleeping emotion there is, if I wasn't laughing at Ramsey's " me Tarzan you Jane" antics or REALLY disliking Salvatore ( sorry Amy ) ... I had the tissues out crying my eyes out! So.....3 words "OUTTA THIS WORLD".

What was one of the most memorable moments of Blood Vengeance?

Well suffice to say my favorite line was " A Blood Moon trumps all other Protocol" but most gripping was when Goddess Andromeda showed up, I have literally reread it at least 4 time .... Gripping is putting it mildly !

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

Eric brings so much more emotion to everyone, so much more than when you read the book, just close your eyes and you are there, you are part of Dark Moon Vale.

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

Not giving away any spoilers but I'll just say "in the park"

Any additional comments?

Tessa's Blood curse series in the books and ebook are amazing but when you listen to them narrated by Eric G Dove you are living them, it's great.........

Kagen Silivasi is a powerful, ancient vampire with a unique gift for healing - he is also a son, a brother, and a loner who has survived unspeakable tragedy and loss. Beneath his handsome, well-mannered exterior lies an alter ego consumed by rage and an overwhelming impulse to "kill them all"....

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.

Mina Louvet is a fighter, a human with a powerful will to survive in a world dominated by warlocks, soul-eaters, and shifters. Identified by the king's witch as one of the rare, invaluable females in Dragons Realm who can give birth to a dragon's son, she was stolen from her parents as a child and taken to the Keep to be reared in the ways of the Ahavi. As one of the few, the elect - the Sklavos Ahavi - Mina is expected to feed her master's fire, reanimate his blood, and above all else, give him strong dragon offspring: children who will one day rise to power.

I love Tessa Dawns Blood Curse Series so of course I had to get Dragons Realm in Audio and am I ever glad I did! Mina and Dantes story was AWESOME...from start to finish ( and I didn't want it to be finished) it was thrilling and filled with so many twists and turns and at one point a literal jaw dropper! I just hope Tessa has a sequel to this wonderful book and as for Mikael Naramores narration of Dragons Realm he brought so much emotion and realism to an already awesome book. So as I said Tessa hit a new level of AWESOME !!!!! Thank you Tessa as always U ROCK the Gothic/Dark Fantasy world!!!!

Napolean Mondragon is more than an immortal vampire. He's the sovereign lord of the house of Jadon, the very heartbeat of the race, and a fearsome leader who rules with wisdom, integrity, and strength. Even as Napolean carries the blood of every vampire in his veins, he also carries a dark secret of shame in his heart...a secret that will soon be used against him by his enemies.

A dangerous game of life, blood, and survival.... Marquis Silivasi is a loner, an ancient vampire known to be merciless, harsh, and unforgiving. He has lived to see his dark twin sacrificed, his parents hunted, and the one soul he was sworn to protect destroyed by his enemy. When a mysterious female with a secret past shows up in Dark Moon Vale, her presence sets off a strange set of events: It is as if she has awakened the sleeping soul of the valley... and the curse of Marquis's birth.

I knew after reading Tessa Dawns first Book in the Blood Curse Series that I was hooked. Not only does Tessa give a new and unique twist to the Vampire legend she draws you into a world that is not only dark and dangerous but still has a chance of redemption.
Blood Awakening is Marquis's Story and I have to tell you that right from the start of the book ***** possible slight spoiler***** where he is at the grave of his brother and he feels the weight of his loss and he just cries out in such raw pain.....well from that point on you just can not stop...and I have to say listening to his story in audio book as told by Eric Dove is amazing, he just brings such passion in all ways......you feel Marquis pain, devastation, hope, love , loss and every possible emotion.....Mr Dove you rocked and you did this awesome series proud, thank you and as alway Tessa THANK YOU you are the Queen of Dark Fantasy / Paranormal ....
