Great Story & Addition to an Awesome Series🎧📚🎧

I loved the first book of the series, “My Blood Runs Blue” which should be read and/or listened to before starting this one. This short story is the history of Kristin’s life and her link to Calista. I was rooting for Julian and Kristin in the first book but now I see why she did what she did. I am being as vague as possible because I do not want to spoil anything for those who did not read/listen to the first book. This book is a great addition to the series, giving details about an incident in the past that forever changed Julian and Alex’s life. Stacy Eaton fit a lot of story into this book, it is fast moving paranormal romance that includes drama, a touch of angst, heartfelt and heartbreaking moments. I loved that this story adds more depth to the wonderful characters of this amazing series. Stacy Eaton, thank you for this great story.

Alex Black continues to bring these characters and their story to life. He does a great job portraying and humanizing the characters. He is best at performing the male character roles, his child voice was great too. He is an entertaining storyteller and a pleasure to listen to. Thank you for another great listen🎧

The backstory

◦ I've received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review ◦

The 2nd book from "My Blood Runs Blue" brings you the back story from Calista to the present day. We’re transported to the past when Calista and Julian where together and had a happy family and a 5 yo daugther.

Alexander, Calista and Julian where all pretty close together, until Calista and Julian mated and they broke Alexander’s heart. After years of not speaking or being together, a strange incident brings Calista and Alexander under her own roof while Julian is away on a business trip. This meeting and time spent together makes Calista confused of her own feelings.

The audiobook is action packed and gives you an insight on Calista’s life until the present day. Even back then she loved them both but has chosen Julian, but when she meets Alexander her whole feelings take a different turn and you can see the internal conflict she’s dealing with.

This audiobook as the first one has really descriptive sexual moments that for sure will make you blush, its steamy, hot and really nice narrated. However, I wasn’t really a fan of the narration of the kid, I found those moments a little bit annoying and forced.

Overall the book has been nice to listen to and get you prepared to what’s coming next. This audiobook should be listen to before the 1st one because then you’ll understand why Kristin has chosen Alexander at the end of the 1st book. The story is twisted and complicated, love triangle and very steamy!

take a look back to see where she is going

If you wanted to know more about Calista, this was your chance. You see what took place in the past and what lead up to the disaster that was the end of Calista's life. You will see each of the three men from the first installment. This is short but I think it lends more insight to the series beginning.

I very much enjoy Stacy Eaton's works. She gives me new details and more to experience. While Alex Black brings to life the voices of each character with clarity. I have enjoyed all of Alex narrations. This one was no different. Thank you for the vivid imagery created by his voice and Stacy's words.

Reasons I enjoyed this book:

Great Read

The Pulse of Blue Blood: The Back Story of Calista (My Blood Runs Blue #2) was a great read by Stacy Eaton. This book is the back story of Kristin and Calista. You learn about the decisions that Calista made between Julian and Alexander. You also learn about Calista's life with Julian and her untimely death. This was a great quick read and I can't wait to read more in this series.

Much Needed Answers

This novella was appreciated to answer the questions I had about Calista and her life. It helped explain the meaning of half breeds in the vampire community and her relationship with Alex and Julian.

The narrator, Alex Black voiced Calista well.

Great Addition!

This is the second book in the My Blood Runs Blue Series, an emotional paranormal vampire romance. The back story of Calista is a great addition to the Series. You have to listen to the first book before this one. This book gives us more information about Calista, Alexander, and Julian past. I enjoyed it. Alex Black did a great job with the narration. I can't wait to listen to the next book in the Series, Blue Blood for Life.

interesting insights into a complex character

Definitely read this story after the first book - My Blood Runs Blue. It provides interesting insights into the Kristen/Calista's character. If you wondered why she made the choice she did between her men in book 1, this book provides some good background into why.

I received an advanced reader copy of this audiobook and voluntarily provided this review.

Great addition to the series

I had never read or listened to anything Stacy Eaton had written before I started this series and now, I am addicted. Yes, this is only book 1.5 but I am already craving book 2. Calista is a character with spunk, with emotion, and with heat that pulled me in as she found her way in life. She made decisions that made me cringe, she did things that made me respect her, and she had a way of making me just want the best for her. I knew how this book would end since I had already listened to the first book and this was a prequel to book 1 but made to be listened to after book one.
The narrator that Stacy choose were perfect. He brought this short but powerful story to life with their tones. I could feel the attractions, the emotions, and the fear as the story was read to me. I enjoyed that this story was told by a male narrator even though the character was a female.

Of course, you need to start with book one, My Blood Runs Blue, and then continue on with The Pulse of Blue Blood. But I can guarantee it will be time well spent listening to this wonderful paranormal story.

Interesting to see another side to the story

I enjoyed this book (#2), you need to have read the first book in the series or this won't make sense and will spoilt book 1 for you.
The story is the lead up to book 1 and it was great to see the story from a different perspective. It shows Callista's life with Julian and their daughter and how it has affected Alex.
The narrator was good, easy to listen to but I didn't like his voice for Anastasia (child), but she's not speaking much in the book.
