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.

Brilliant Masterpiece with Fabulous Narration

Blood Echo is book 11 of the Blood Curse Series. I am not even sure I have the correct words to describe this book. In all honesty, the word brilliant, comes to mind. I did not think it possible for this author to carry this series any higher than she already has. Yet here we have it, the best book so far, in my humble opinion, of the Blood Curse series. Tessa Dawn is truly a gifted storyteller. Dawn’s ability to create such a unique world where her scenes are so detailed that you find your very being within the story itself, as if you can see, hear, taste, feel, and experience firsthand every aspect of the story. You begin to know each character as if you’d personally met each one of them. You feel their pain, their defeats, their triumphs, and their deep love for their own. The magic spells Dawn casts over, under, around, and through this book are utterly enchanting. This story, filled with lethal and absolutely stunning Vampires, dangerous Wizards, and supernatural Beasts alike will completely captivate you to the very end. It is a page turner, one you cannot put down. I absolutely give five stars to this magical masterpiece and I strongly recommend it. Each of these books carry their own story but I do suggest you start with book 1, Blood Destiny, of the Blood Curse series, as all of the characters evolve through each book as they were written. Either way, I promise, you will not be disappointed.

First-class narration of spellbinding story

“Blood Echo,” Tessa Dawn’s latest installment of her Blood Curse Series is simply magnificent. A compelling storyline, complex characters and lush descriptions make for an unforgettable read AND listen. What I have done with previous books of the BCS is to purchase the eBook first, sit down for a big read and then listen to the audible version. The reason I enjoy this is because it creates a fully immersive experience, where I can literally hop into Dawn’s world and experience the story in a multi-faceted manner. “Blood Echo” centers around Nanaşule, a vampire and Gwendolyn, his human ‘destiny’. Characters from past books also made an appearance, which was a lovely addition to this evocative tale. I absolutely LOVED this installment and will both re-read and re-listen.

Blood Echo is another great addition to the Blood Curse series. Every book leaves you wanting more the stories are so enchanting you are spellbound from beginning to end.....Eric G Dove is perfect for these books also.. These characters are so well developed they end up being people you know well even though it is fiction it seems so real. A sign of a great writer, one that leaves you wanting more and more....The next book is going to be just as great..and hard to wait for it's release. Thank you Tessa !!!!!!!!!!!

OVER THE MOON

Blood Echo was just amazing. Everything I hoped it would be and more. I can’t believe that a series can just keep getting better and better!

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!

Perfect..


First of all, I love the cover. Secondly, I loved the book. Third, I love Gwen and Fabian. He was completely different from all the others in all the other books, having been buried deep in a well for thousands of years. It was a great story where he went from a mad vampire, lost in a “fog,” to one of a tamed and wonderful vampire. And, oddly enough, it took Gwen almost the entire book to come to care for Fabian. No insta-love here.

The worst part, or the best, depending on how you look at it, was what he did to Paul McNeil. Ewww.

There was explicit sex in this, and the F-bomb was used 17 times.

As to the narration: Doesn’t get much better than Eric G. Dove.

Wow! Loved it!!

An absolute masterpiece. I honestly can't think of the words to express how much I loved this book. Action. Danger. Suspense. Love. Hope. Triumph. Struggle. It's all there in living color and as well-written as we have come to expect from Ms. Dawn. Bravo!
