“ONE TASTE IS ALL IT TAKES
For those who feast on blood, Jillian Conrad is a fatal attraction. After being injected with a serum that made her blood both irresistible and deadly to vampires, she was used as a pawn to assassinate the vampire king. Now, the vampires want her eliminated.
Hunted and unable to return to her old life, Jillian desperately seeks to prevent the poison in her veins from killing her. And she must find a way to help her dhampyr protector, Declan, whose exposure to the serum has split his personality into one part uncontrolled desire, and one part stone cold killer.
But an even greater danger is rising. The Amarantos — a secret society of vampires — is seeking the infant daughter of the slain king to complete their quest for true immortality. And if they succeed, no one, living or undead, will escape the darkness.”
What can I say but , “WOOT WOOT!!”. I read the first book two months before the release of this one, so I didn’t have to wait as long for this books publication (Sweet :P). My two new favourite protagonists are back in action in the second volume of the “Nightshade” series. Between the two books only one week has passed, but the characters circumstances have changed. Being on the run is one thing, but with the poison inside her blood slowly killing her, Jill’s week keeps getting worse. Declan, her protector becoming bipolar doesn’t help ease her tension either. In these stressful times Jill has to make several sudden and life altering decisions that will affect more than just herself.
While it did take me a couple of days to read it, meaning I could put it down, I still enjoyed the book. A couple of times during Bloodlust, I stopped and thought, “I wasn’t expecting that to happen!” It is moments like that, those unexpected scenes that keeps a book interesting. and makes me realize I’m never going to be able to become a detective because my deductive stills seem to lean towards the obvious. While really good books have twists and turns that all make sense in the end.
