The Blood is Love by Karina Halle is now live!!! + My Review

True love never dies

The Blood is Love by Karina Halle is now live!

From the fog-shrouded bay of San Francisco to the dark cobblestone streets of Helsinki and all the hidden places in-between, The Blood is Love takes the reader on a sensual and twisted journey deep into Lenore and Solon’s lush vampire world in this thrilling sequel to Black Sunshine.

When Lenore Warwick turned twenty-one, she expected lots of bar-hopping, parties with friends, and the occasional hookup. What she got was the realization that she’s both a witch and a vampire, and that there are things in this world that want her dead. Thank god she has her enigmatic vampire lover, Absolon Stavig, to help show her the ropes. But while Lenore struggles to fit into her new topsy turvy world, full of blood, sex, and magic, she also has to contend with her messy and complicated love for a vampire who isn’t always what he seems.
To make matters worse, her real father, Jeremias, a powerful warlock from the dark side, has professed an interest in her, while Solon’s father, the depraved vampire king Skarde, is intent on destroying everything she loves. When Solon and Lenore have to travel to Finland to work alongside Solon’s charming and vicious brother, Kaleid, in an attempt to defeat Skarde once and for all, the two of them enter a bloody new world that neither of them are prepared for. Even if their love survives the carnage to come, the chances of them getting out of there alive are slim. Good thing they like to take their chances.

Terrific follow up to the first story in the thrilling series. I love the exciting world this author has created full of scary creatures and sexy love. Vampires, witches, devils, beasts and more. The heroine Lenore is a vampire/witch hybrid learning how to be a vampire. It’s all about blood and sex. Hot blood and hotter sex! Her source for both is her cool hunky boyfriend Solon. He’s a centuries old vamp with a hidden beast. This story picks up where the first one ended with Lenore and Solon hot and heavy until an encounter with the beast causes a problem. We get some answers to questions from Black Sunshine and Lenore’s real father the evil dark witch Jeremias makes an appearance. We meet Solon’s estranged brother Kaleid. Not a good relationship and he wants something from Solon. We see the beginning of their father the devil Skarde. Scary stuff! All the old favs from the first book are here. Amethyst and Wolf avoiding their feelings and the sorta awful and sorta hot Ezra. There’s tons of action, danger, intrigue and hot love. Love this series and I can’t wait for more. Absolutely fabulous!
