Emily was a great choice for this story. I love how you're kept in suspense until the end before you learn the meaning of a Daywalker. Hope the story continues. Love Tessa Dawn's work.

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.

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

Eric G. Dove is an amazing narrator but without Tessa Dawn and her wonderful story this audible wouldn't be possible. It's amazing to hear such stunning voice bring Tessa's book to life.

Which character – as performed by Eric G. Dove – was your favorite?

I enjoy all the characters because he can bring out the personality of each one.

Any additional comments?

There is so emotion put into all of Tessa Dawn's books that it's not enough just to read them but to be able to listen to them brings the book into a whole new light. Eric and Tessa have done it again and knocked it out of the park. BRAVO!

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.

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.

What did you like best about this story?

As much as she drives me nuts I love how Mina is so determined to understand how things have to be done and why. She's thrown into something she never wanted but grows to want the one thing she's been fighting.

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

Any additional comments?

Mikael Naramore's voice for Dante is amazing and hot. With a voice like that I just don't understand why Mina was fighting it so hard.
Tessa wrote another amazing story and is one of the best authors out there.
I 100% recommend this story.

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.

Tessa Dawn is an extraordinary writer and does a terrific job at bringing us this wonderful series. The details that are put into the story and the history she offers into the characters life is astounding. It is wonderful to read and hear Napolean Mondragon story. To hear that he found his destiny after all that time he's been alone. Even through their tough beginning true love prevails. Can't wait for the next story.

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.

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

Worth the wait!

What other book might you compare Blood Awakening to and why?

No other book can bring you the suspense and emotions that Tessa Dawn's Blood Curse Series does.

Have you listened to any of Eric G. Dove’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes. He has done an amazing job at Blood Destiny and Blood Awakening. He has an amazing voice and brings out the personality of all the characters. *Great Job*

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Dark Moon Vale presents "Blood Awakening"..............

Any additional comments?

I absolutely loved reading this series. I have never been able to listen to someone else read to me but when I heard the first book I couldn't wait to hear Blood Awakening. It's a terrific story and an emotional rollercoaster. Can't wait until the next one is released. Love the Blood Curse Series and love Tessa Dawn for bringing the characters to life. Thank you Tessa!!!
