Publisher's summary

Let sleeping dogs lie...

Don't stir up the past.

Especially when that past is an ancient, feral vampire sleeping at the bottom of an aged cobblestone well, one who is famished for blood, determined to claim you, and haunted by mystical shadows...remnants from the past.

Long ago, in a Romanian castle, the last females of a dying race called him Nanaşule. Godfather. One who wields the powers of the gods, yet behaves as Father, one who is both respected and beloved...at least before the Blood Curse.

One who hails from a long line of powerful mages who served the monarchy faithfully.

But something is different about Fabian Antonescu. He is haunted by visions of a golden hawk and a copper-eyed raven - cryptic vials of blood - and he will do anything to remain one step ahead of his memories. For the secrets shrouded in the fog could change everything.

Gwendolyn Hamilton, as strong as she is, has already survived the unthinkable. She didn't ask to be thrust into a predatory world of vampires, warriors, and ancient mages. She didn't ask to be taken by Fabian.

Yet one touch of a stone, one electrical current, one fateful moment when a vampire's eyes met hers were more than enough to set off an explosion - and cause a thunderous Blood Echo.

If she hopes to survive, she must answer back...

To the call of the wild - to a savage vampire.

To the demands of antiquity in a modern world.

To the threat and promise of a looming Blood Moon - and the destiny that awaits her.

Awesome!!!!

I read Blood Echo when it first came out but I still had to listen to the audio version. I just love the way Eric G. Dove brings the books to life. It was worth the wait for the audio version. It made the story even better to hear Eric read it to me. I felt this book was more of a precursor to things to come than just Fabian and Gwen's story. As a couple Fabian and Gwen were truly meant to be. The book was packed with a lot of backstory from when the curse first originated. It filled in a lot of unanswered questions I had personally. There was less romance than in previous books. All in all, I would say this book is a setup for the things that will occur in the next book. Fabian and Gwen's story was highly anticipated and I must say this book did not disappoint. What else could one expect when you awaken a powerful wizard who has been sleeping for over 2800 years?

Great Series and Narration!

I love this series! It's so good.

There are great characters, stories, dialogue and action. There was some LOL moments in this book as Fabian was 2800 years + old and didn't quite understand the new generation. Gwen was great too, and funny explaining Fabian.

If you haven't read this series you are missing out.

I am very excited this book left us with a teaser for Braden's story so it is not the end. YAY

As for the narration, it was great. I love Eric G. Dove, he does such a great job on the voices, especially the female voices. He has a great reading voice too.

So many emotions!

Gwen Hamilton has no idea that her life was about to change. Her blood called to an ancient Vampire that has been asleep at the bottom of a well. She has no clue about the curse or about the mating. How is she supposed to fall in love with someone who demands her blood, demands her love, and demands her soul? A nightmare from the beginning, she is not prepared to be or to fulfill her duties as a Destiny.

Fabian Antonescu has been asleep for hundreds of years. Vowing to protect the Ancient Princess’s from certain death, he made sure they were tucked away in their slumber and did the same for himself. Her blood awakened him and feeling her near, he took what was his. A language barrier makes it difficult for him to communicate with his Destiny, but the Blood Moon is upon them and time is of the essence.

The Good: As always, Eric G Dove brought such life to this story with his narration. I could not stop listening.
The Bad: This Series has broken my heart yet again, with the Destinies being oblivious to the curse and how their lives have to change in such a short time.
The Ugly: The Dark Ones and their deviousness. Always plotting and planning to destroy the happiness within the House of Jadon

I thoroughly enjoyed this next book in the series. So much angst, drama, and of course steamy sex. I was so unsure of Fabian in the beginning and my heart broke for him when he had to deal with the reality of it being so many years since he awakened. Tessa Dawn has once again brought Dark Moon Vale go life and gave a story of hope for love to prevail. My emotional grid while listening was off the charts and the prologue has me itching for more. I need the next book right now. A Solid 5 Stars!

Blood Echo. Exciting and so Entertaining

This book was so good I have already read it twice. One twist after another. Exciting and Intriguing. It had me clinging to the book from the very first chapter.

My Favorite One yet!

I loved Fabian’s story. He and Gwen were awesome. He is one hell of a Vampire. He was so intense. I especially loved that he could go toe to toe with a best of them. The narration was spot on and the book was everything I hoped for. Five Fangs on this one. Worth the wait, let me tell you. ⚰️⚰️⚰️⚰️⚰️
