"The sight of three naked, bloody men wandering into the clearing with moonlight clouding their eyes would probably send anyone else running for their life. I just sighed and watched them walk toward me."

As the first female vampire successfully turned in 700 years, Lissa finds herself in demand by the Vampire Aristocracy. Forced into an unexpected engagement as a result, L...more

OMG!!!!!! This book was better than the first, action wise. I read it in about 4 hours and couldn't tear myself away to even go to the bathroom. WOW!!!!!!!!! The ending.....OMG...what an ending it was!!!!! I don't know how long I can wait until the next one comes out, so hurry please Connie!

I have now read it a second time. This time it took me about 6 hours to complete it. I still had difficulty tearing myself away from the story. It's even better the second go round and will be even better ev...more
The futher adventures of Lissa...

I still liked newbie vampire Lissa and she is satisfyingly powerful in the action parts of the book. But I am finding that I hate the vampire world and how powerless she is within the strictures of their rules, how black and white those rules are, and how much she acts like a child in those scenes.

I also have come to really dislike her 'love' interest Gavin, getting a bit of his POV in the past book (as letters) made him tolerable, unforgivable treatment of Liss...more
Blood Passage suffers of the same disease of Blood Wager: Lissa. I can't connect with her, because she seems schizofrenic or bipolar (in the lay sense of the word). The plot is still good, even if a little bit repetitive (but then they are touring America, so it's going to be some repetition, hotels, meals..)

Unfortunately the coherence is still missing: Lissa behaves as middle age woman towards some, as a child (and is treated as such) with vampires. The problem is vampire are coherent in their...more

This is the second novel in the Blood Destiny series. It continues the un-life of Lissa Beth Workman, an unintentional vampire unlike any you've met before. (Lots of "uns" in that sentence. Maybe I should have an un-cola as I write this review, LOL.)

In Blood Passage, Lissa is officially brought into the fold; both vampire and werewolf. She stands at the crossroads helping strengthen the bond between these two powerful and ancient races that have only recently forged a truce that would end the wa...more
The Bookworms' Lair
Following on from where Blood Wager left off, Lissa is a very rare (obviously) female vampire and has some nifty powers that other vampires don’t have (of course), and she’s not telling anyone she’s got them either.

Some of this novel is very predictable, in her interactions with the vampires the author seems to be trying to isolate Lissa, and granted the male dominated world she has been dragged into doesn’t have a softer side for women, they are used to dealing mostly with men. There was a dece...more
Kitty (I solemnly swear that I am up to no good)

This book was just horrible. It had no cohesion; the plot line, the writing and the character development was totally discombobulated. Every decision Lissa made left me frustrated and often disgusted, Gavin was the least attractive love interest ever ever, and I was left unable to relate or empathise with any of the characters.

In one chapter Lissa would be with the weres baking and generally acting like a middle aged matriarch:

Book two in the series

Lissa Haddon is now recognized by the Council. She has been assigned a Sire (Merrill), and has moved into his home. He is teaching her how to follow vampire protocol and the laws she needs to avoid breaking.

She is also force to attend a gala and meet male vampires. Since she is one of the few female vampires she will need to accept an engagement. She decides to take Gavin's offer (lesser of evils or maybe not).

She feels trapped, so when an offer from the Grand Master Weldon...more

If I thought that the first book in the series was good then the second is excellent.

Lissa is extremely pragmatic and I easily fall in love with her. She makes the best of her new situation while being one mean cookie backing vampire. She has enjoyed the liberty to be a newly turned vampire and now being confined by neanderthal vampires and being engaged to Gavin did not go well. She took her enjoyment where she could get them...which is a long list of close calls but the pacing was well balanc...more

An interesting series (and the end propelled me to buy the next book in spite of my initial decision to stop reading). However, as with the first book, still way too much repetition, too many details (sometimes we don't need to know the exact steps a character took to do an action, like getting to the car; we just need to know the action was finished), too much side information that distracted from the storyline, and characters that told each other things they both already knew to get that infor...more
This book is the best! This series is my new favorite series. Now that I'm finished with book two, and impatiently awaiting book three, I will have to re-read book one and two, I think. They are that good. If you loved Twilight, read these books. If you HATED Twilight, read these books. If you don't think you like vampire books, read these books anyway! I've turned up my nose at vampire books for two years now, and I'm so glad I gave another one (these books) a chance. I would have missed out. B...more
The plot sort of meandered around and I wasn't liking Gavin so much, hence 3 stars. I still enjoyed the book and will continue, but I hope some things get better as we move along in the series.

With Gavin, there's a line between alpha male and annoying (even potentially abusive) asshole. The constant yelling and swearing for 20 mins at a time got old. I could over look it after the werewolf execution, but all those other times? Not so much. I get he was worried about her and all that, but is tha...more

OMG! This book has a serious cliffhanger, so their, I warned you.
The second book in the Blood Destiny series, Blood Passage, starts where Blood Wager left off. Lissa is in Merrill's care as her surrogat sire, teaching her the ways of the vampire rules and what not. Gavin's character also returns, trying to woo Lissa and gain her trust back. Lissa is also discovering new things she can do with her abilities, of course at the wrong time, and keeping most of what she discovers about her vampire po...more
not quite as good as book one but still likeable. instead of having a quiet strength, Lissa came across as a pushover. i did not like Gavin in bk 1 & so really did not care for his role in bk 2. lissa's emotions didnt feel as realistic either. other than my personal character preferances it was enjoyable but i'm not sure if i will continue in the series.
Dreckitude. The moment she was forced into an arranged vampire marriage with a man she supposedly fiercely hated, I was done. There is only so much cookie-baking-vampire-who-is-irresistible-to-men one can take.

Unfortunately this series starts as urban fantasy but it takes a sharp turn to sci-fi.

I finished at book 6, and the whole time I was just expecting our h to explode and give some pay back. Maybe that's why I hung to it for 6 books.

Gavin, the first H, is an abusive bastard. I just cant stand how she just took the abuse.

This book had a lot of plot holes, but it was still enjoyable until you get so passionate about the characters and then they disappoint you and you drop the series.

Another reason I...more

Amazon tends to give away a lot of books that are the beginnings of series in hopes of hooking the reader. In the case of the Blood Destiny series, that hook definitely worked. If I thought that the first book in the series was good then BLOOD PASSAGE is excellent.

Lissa is a character that I found easy to fall in love with. She is extremely pragmatic about the happenings in her life and for the most past just adapts. She isn’t happy with the fact that she has to become engaged so that there isn’...more

Connie Suttle is definitely getting into the author groove of things in Blood Passage, her second book. She made a few noticeable tweaks after Blood Wager and I found this book to be a much smoother read. The only thing that a struggled with was the lack of a refresher on the events that occurred in the previous installment. I read it back in September so a few of the details were a little blurry. This series is meant to be read back-to-back but that's not always possible...more

This is turning into the Perils of Pauline! Or rather, the Perils of Lissa.

This is more like reading a serial than a regular series. They are short, fast reads with excitement and danger.

In series like Anita Blake and Sookie Stackhouse, when the author takes a break and gives a book of short adventures I just curse and spit and call them all kinds of names. But for some reason I give Connie a pass. I mean, I'm halfway through book 4 now: what do I expect to happen? I love this format and I enj...more

I am reading this series back-to-back so no reviews on other books unless they fall from the sky like rain! This author seems to be on my exact frequency! Suttle offers just enough of a variety of different genres to keep me losing sleep over reading her work! The Kindle abuse continues, guys!(It hits my face at 2AM, wakes me up, I go back to reading!). Great recipe right before Christmas. So, why are these so addictive?

You just have to know what happens next.

Blood Passage is the second book in the Blood Destiny series. I LOVED this book just as much as the first one!!
Blood Passage picks up right where Blood Wager leaves off. I absolutely love and adore Lissa! She has an amazing and quirky personality that makes me laugh out loud. She is still trying to make sense of the life that she's been thrown into, unwillingly. She is constantly having to adapt to new situations and new people. And she's had to learn how to accept things as they are because the...more
Couldn't finish it. Made it about 1/3rd of the way through. this series went from a good start of an UF series to a regency romance where the helpless lady is forced to marry her enemy. And forget the fact that he keeps forcing her out of her clothes. ugh. Not my style at all. Read some reviews with spoilers and found out that it only gets worse from her. I think I'll stop now before I get pissed off and frustrated.
I don't understand Lissa. Actually, there are quite a few things about her that I don't understand:

Lissa is now living with an adopted sire among the vampires in England and learning about their laws and society. She is also sent out on some missions, re-encountering some old friends.

I don’t want to go into the plot too much so as to avoid spoiling the story, especially for those who are just discovering this awesome series. This is a fast-paced book and a lot of new characters are introduced – we also learn a lot more about vampire society, which is fascinating to me. I was very happy again...more
This author shows a lot of promise. She is strong at writing action and building intrigue. I struggle that the main character is a Mary Sue. She is perfect and desired by all and claims to love characters but I can't see the connection except on perhaps a physical attraction level. I find Lissa's questionable ethics regarding men and her constant victim or hero status irritating.

That said...the action and intrigue is great! On par or better than many extablished authors. That's what is keeping m...more
Feb 27, 2014 Elizabeth marked it as abandoned  ·  review of another edition
tried to read because I enjoyed book one. Got really bored and abandoned. Put entire series on my abandoned bookshelf.
This is the continuation of Lissa Beth's story as a new vampire. Connie Suttle is a wonderful writer. Her stories flow, and they just have great, lovable, and memorable characters. The only problem with this book is the fickleness of Lissa when it comes to men. Gavin, Winkler, and Tony all show her affection, which she shows back. It's also mentioned in this book that she has a minor thing for her sire. This is the only thing that bothers me about the character of Lissa.

Warning!! This book ends...more

The writing is very basic. Like almost high school basic. Still it is a good story and I like the main protagonist so I'm going to read the next in the series hoping Lissa starts kicking some ass. She is traumatized and timid around other vampires and seriously how does everyone dismiss her when she has so many growing abilities? I understand she finally comes into her own several books down the line but in the mean time she sure goes through a lot of crap. I wish the author was a bit more expre...more
I really liked the ending.
Gavin is an Asshole!!
