Blood Jewel Blog Tour - Midway Review
I'm excited to share my midway review with you as part of the Blood Jewel blog tour. The midway review is just as it sounds, a review written partway through the book.
With the mystery of Chansey Leclaire and Curry Brennan’s connection solved, they are free to explore their newfound love for one another. Or so they thought...
When Marsala uses a witch and black magic to discover Curry’s whereabouts, he and Chansey are left with no choice. The newly engaged couple is forced to relocate away from their families at the new compound in Savannah, which causes some major changes in the plans for their upcoming wedding.
Relocating to Savannah might have saved Curry and Chansey from being discovered by Marsala, but it doesn’t stop her attempts to reach Curry or her efforts to harm Chansey through the use of black magic. As Marsala closes in, Curry faces the decision he never wanted to make. Will he keep Chansey human or condemn her to eternity as the thing he hates most?
As Curry waits for his hand to be forced, a newly turned vampire arrives at the Savannah compound in need of help. Not only is she a fledgeling in transition, she brings reports of escaping from a vampire cult still in possession of her sister, a human. Any attempt to save the captive human from a cult of vampires puts everyone in jeopardy. Can they risk entering a large cult to save one human being? And is so, how could they possibly do it successfully?
Love will grow. New mysteries will arise. A battle will ensue. A Blood Jewel will be found.
Curry and Chansey are back in book 2 of the Vampire Agape series. As fated lovers, their relationship is intense and consuming. Right now I'm about a third of the way through the book and I have a feeling I'm on the verge of something very big happening! Already we've heard from Curry's old lover/foe Marsala and I doubt Curry and Chansey have heard from her for the last time.
I really enjoyed the very beginning of this book, where we got a prologue written from Marsala's point of view. While Marsala seems like quite the monster, I think the prologue served as a great reminder that at one point, Marsala was a human girl, with human hopes and fears. It helps to keep her from being just a boring villian (or jealous ex-girlfriend).
I haven't yet figured out the significance of the term "Blood Jewel," which I'm certain will be revealed later on, but the synopsis hints at some very exciting stuff to come. So far, so good for Blood Jewel!

Gorgeous, just like the rest of the series.
