Like all the books in "The Mark of the Vampire" series, I loved this short story by Laura Wright. I've been wanting to learn more about Gray Donahue and this helped shed some light on his character and his relationship with the intriguing Dillon. The next book in the series, "Eternal Beast" , is about Gray and Dillon. It's due to be released in August and I for one can't wait! ( Note:It would be a great birthday present for me that month!!!)
If you haven't read any of the books from the series y...more

เล่มนี้เป็นเล่มอยู่ตรงกลางระหว่างเล่มสอง และสามในชุด (ดังนั้นขอนับว่าเป็น 2.5 แล้วกันนะคะ) เล่าเรื่องของคาแร็คเตอร์ที่จะเป็นพระเอกนางเอกของเล่มสี่ ดังนั้นทำใจเลยนะคะว่า เนื้อเรื่องค้างคาไม่จบในตอน ทิ้งท้ายแบบให้ติดตามอ่านกันต่อไป

Ever since Eternal Kiss I've wanted to read more about Gray and Dillon. I think they might be my favorite couple, and they're not even a couple yet!

This short story takes us into the life of Gray, Sara's brother, after Eternal Kiss. Not to be missed as there's a big revelation about Gray and what he is. And not to be missed because we get another taste for what Dillon and Gray can be together! Plenty of sexual tension between these two!! When they finall...more

For a short story I felt this book was pretty great, I felt that Laura could have turned it into a full novel with all the potential the story had but she did a good job keeping me emotionally involved with Gray and his struggles.

This very short read was intriguing, sexy, & a bit scary.
You get some great scenes in this one especially with Gray & Dillon. But the best enlightenment comes with the information Gray receives about himself & his birth right. Which sets him on a path of more danger but one of purpose. Gray gets a true sense of his destiny. Making the choice of leaving his self destructive behavior behind. And I can't wait to see how this plays out in this series.

Awesome short read.. I do wish it co...more

Aimless Gray (and thus the reader) gets to experience what being an Impure is like when the Order grabs him for the blood castration ritual. He finds out more about his father, Jeremy, and a question is raised regarding the fire that put him in a coma so many years ago. Of course, he is saved by Dillon, whom he lusts after (but she likes his sister Sara who is Alex's mate - what kind of love polygon is this?). His experience fuels his drive to save the Impures in the Paleo and he ends up more fo...more

It was ok, I was a little disappointed though. I liked the little bit of background that we got for Gray, but I was looking for a little bit more interaction in the episode with Dillon. I am assuming it is just the build up for when they actually do get together in his book... but we could have gotten a little more. I've gotten little add on books like this from other authors, with double the content and for only 1.99 instead of 3.99. This was actually about 35 pages as opposed to the 85 or so p...more
Amie
Even though this is a short book it gives a look at what Gray is up to and peek at what maybe between Gray and Dillon.
Victoria
Nice quick read. I'm looking forward to a full length Gray book. After this we need one. Laura lets a few secrets go in this novella. Like what Gray and Sara really are ;). I'm still trying to figure out what Dillon has going on in her head. There has to be a reason why she's there for Gray. Can't wait for ETERNAL CAPTIVE maybe Laura will give us more Gray info :).
Brandy
I have always had a soft spot for Gray. The life he's had, the hard times he's endured. I am interested to see where his life goes from here. This was an excellent short story! It grabbed me from the very first page, lots of action and leaves you wanting more.
Sheila Grindatti
I absolutely didn't get this book.... it's like I never read the others in the series...
I like the first two book, I'm sure the third book will be good, but this one.... left me confused as to what the heck did I misread, cause I don't know these people...

Eternal Blood grabbed a hold of you right away, no easing into the story just "Wham, Bam and almost Thank you Mam'm". Laura Wright always delivers, her writing is gripping, the romance is scorching and the characters are vibrant. Definite 5 stars!
Dee Adams
Eternal Blood starts with bang and gives us a great look at Gray and his tortured soul. Laura Wright knows how to kick up the steam and keep the reader wanting more. I can't wait for Eternal Captive and look forward to seeing more of Gray and D.

Barely any story here, I thought this was going to be about Grey and Dillon, but it was only a tease. The tease was not at all fulfilling. 50% of this ebook is a sneak peak at the next book. Don't bother with this one.
AngelLeah
I loved this tease of a short story! I find Gray very interesting and I love where Laura Wright is going with his character. This was a super short read, but now I am more than interesting in his book!
Emily
I loved what this novella added to the MOTV series, definitely think it was worth reading. Warning though, it will make you wish Gray & Dillon's book was coming out sooner than August!
Mel
What a great way to spend my lunch hour. Eternal Blood is made of awesome and has me itching to learn more about Gray and the Impures. Can't wait to see what happens next.

Novella:...a do not MISS...you will be lost when it comes to further books. Furthers the plot. Great intro to new character and answers some why questions about the plot.
Glynda Roy
This short story really has me wound up for the next book. This is a great new series. Ms Wright is a very talented writer with a wonderful imagination.
Tamran
Love it!! Please read Laura's books! She's just so great & love her vampire world! Can't wait for more Gray! This was a great little read :)
BJS
Not the usual for a short novel, but nether the less it was a brilliant little book to wet the appetite for the following storys.
Mandy
Man, he went from vegetable to buff pretty fast...must be his blood making him recuperate physically faster than any human.
Jancy
A fantastic glimpse into gray world. Gives you a real taste and leaves you wanting their story to continue. very intriguing

So good, but to short!!! Just when I am getting into the story it was done.. Uggg Can't wait so see more of Gray...
Tamara
A disappointment from Laura Wright, More of a Prologue for a novel than an actual novella, full review to come
