FAN-FREAKING-TASTIC!!! I couldn't put this book down b/c I wanted to know everything that was going to happen and at the same time I didn't want to see it end...I am in withdrawals right now b/c I finished it...NEED THE NEXT BOOK NOW!!!

I am so in love with this series!! More importantly, I am in love with Elliot! He is so wonderful and funny, and the love he has for Michelle is mind-blowing...

When I finished reading Pulse of Heroes, I could not wait to get my hands on Of Blood and Pulse. As much as I hate leaving spoilers, this review will have them because I can’t express what I think without talking about some scenes.

First of all, this book is pure and simple, an epic story of when people are literally made for each other. Elliot and Michelle are made for each other physically and this doesn’t always mean that they will get along emotionally.

Wow...what a thick book with so much inside! A. Jacob Sweeny is definitely moving into a new class as she writes these first novels. I liked "Pulse of Heroes", but I must say that I really enjoyed this second book. There was more of everything in this story: myths, history, biblical references, adventure, romance, and once again the teen angst that this author continues to nail on the head.

It was refreshing to see the characters evolve and interact as the adventure of being in a relationship unf

When I was 16 I had just finished reading all the books in the Twilight series. They to me were the absolute greatest things. I thought to myself, there can't be anything better than this. Moving on a few years, and reading many more books since then, I found that they were all lacking the same feeling. Then one day, I saw rave reviews about a new book I had never heard of. I was skeptical at first but I decided to snatch it up.

I’m a fast reader but was determined to drag this baby out!!! I savoured every chapter, and dragged it out for days... longer.... I know you say why if you loved it... I just didn’t want it to end!!

Well A. Jacob Sweeny did it again! This series just gets better with each book. If your looking for a book packed full of action, history, high adventures plus an epic love story then this is the book for you. With a great story line and loveable characters A. Jacob Sweeny has a series that will reel you in and have you begging for more. The story starts off exciting and ends in the same way. The Twilight Saga doesn't hold a candle to this series.

This book is an amazing continuation of Pulse Of Heroes! Just when you think that the story couldn't get any bigger and deeper, A. Jacob Sweeny takes us on another thrilling ride/s through history and mystery. Only this one is much grander in scope. It's like if you loved the first book then you graduated and can now be allowed to read the second. The history and the amazing travels we go one is EPIC! The depth of character just opens up for the reader a whole new world. Getting to know so much ...more

I love Pulse of Heros, meeting all the characters and learning about them, but the second book is where you get into so much more adventure and learn secrets that will make you never want to put your book down, I know I didn't:) READ THIS BOOK BECAUSE IF YOU DON'T YOU WILL BE MISSING OUT, i know people say that all the time, but you really WILL MISS OUT! SO JUST READ so you don't! well that was my great advice of the day

An exceptional read!
Aspiring novelist A. Jacob Sweeny has delivered another romantic endeavor with Michelle and Elliot on a dark crusade for love, but at what cost?

Hello y'all Anne here and I've just devoured the last pages of AJ Sweenys' work of art Of Blood And Pulse and let me tell you that again I am completely blown away by this book. The amount of riveting history and jaw dropping scenes of past places, times, and events is amazing and very indicative to Pulse Of Heroes hence why I love book 2 just as much if not a little more than book 1. In Book 2 you will pick up right where Book 1 left off and see how now back in America and struggling to stay to ...more

I can't find enough good things to say about this book, without giving away some key spoilers, so I'm going to do my best to keep things simple without giving anything away...

First and foremost, there are so many twists and turns in this book, that you truly are on the edge of your seat the entire time. I thought I was in love with Elliot and Michelle before, but after this heartbreakingly beautiful book I have to say that they are competeing for the number one spot in the part of my heart that

Oh my god this is a big book. With SO much going on - where to begin??
One thing I love about A Jacob Sweeny is the way she can twist and turn on you - one minute you're feeling the terror, then the pain and crushing heartache, then laughing as the characters make their observations about life. All those things are woven together flawlessly.

I believe all the people who are so crazy in love with Pulse of Heroes will appreciate this book even more! The new characters, the exotic locations, the dept

This is an amazing book. I loved Pulse of Heroes, but Blood and Pulse is even better! It has grown into a historical, romantic, suspenseful saga of epic proportions. This book has everything I love in a good story, adventure, romance, travel, history, humor and the characters are very well written and continue to draw you into their lives, past and present. The climactic scene close to the end, was so exciting, I had to keep taking breaks to get my heartbeat back under control. As you can tell, ...more

Spoiler alert !!!!This is the second time I read this amazing book. But below I am posting an argument against the person (Christine)who gave this book a one star.
(caution spoiler alert)I have to write this because I have no idea if we even read the same book. I read Of Blood And Pulse twice. Once in kindle and once in print. To say that nothing happened in the book is very strange to me.

First, not once is there a mundane thing about Michelle waking up and going to bed. But we find out that El

I loved this book as much as the first!
In Pulse of Heroes we get to meet the main characters and in this book we go deeper into their minds. and wow, we go to so many places and meet some very interesting new faces. The adventure part was dynamic, I couldn't breath at all the last two chapters. Loved all the guys interacting with one another. We really get to follow them around and it's so much fun.
The historical flashbacks were great and kept me wanting to know more. It really narrowed it for

First off, let me say that I have NO IDEA why it took me so long to finally pick this book up off of my shelf. I have learned my lesson though, and I will definitely be starting book 3 as soon as it arrives at my door.

My mind has been blown!

Of Blood and Pulse is the epic and exciting continuation of The Pulse Myths series and I enjoyed every second of the phenomenal adventure.

This book is rich with history that has been researched tediously and it not only does it make the series even more out
ARC For Review ~ I also bought the Kindle Version of this installment, in support of this very gifted and hard at writing author.

OMG EPIC! This second installment is even better than the first.. it picks up right where Book 1 left off, an emotional roller-coaster ride, Michelle is insecure about her feelings for Elliot, so much so that she over-reacts to certain events causing herself more than enough pain for both her and Elliot. Elliot has issues of his own to deal with, the emotions are inten

Again another amazing book!!! I could not wait to get my hands on this book, and when I did wow. I had my emotions all over the place with this book!!! I could NOT believe some of the things that happened, and it tore at my heart strings but in the end I calmed down and tried to see some reason, did I still feel a little put out by what Elliott did, yes and I don't think I can forgive him anytime soon.

There was a lot of OMFG moments for me in this book. Again Michelle kind of pisses me off, her

As always this author surprises me and stuns me and excites me with her writing. What another fantastic story with so much amazing history. The story of Michelle and Elliot always make me smile, they have such a connection its just too cool they way they fit so well together. If you like history and don't mind hearing it from some amazing guys this is for sure the book for you. The flow of the book, the excitement, the on your edge

Of Blood and Pulse was a disappointment... In the first book of this series the writing style was so natural and the story flowed well but in this book the story felt forced.

Like in Pulse of Heroes, this book has a lot of historical facts and myths interwoven in the story.
The only thing is that in this book sometimes the old stories and myths seemed forced in and it didn't feel like one of the Ancients telling a story about their past. I had the feeling of being back in a class room, listening t

If you thought that the first book was good, this one will blow you away!! Not only do you get the romance between Elliot and Michelle, but the suspense and the drama that tries to pull them apart. I read this book in like two days, it is one of those books you dont want to put down. I also loved the amount of history that is tied into the story, how you can look into Elliot's life before Michelle. Everything in this book is beyond awesome, and I would recommend it to anyone, but especially teen ...more

Another amazing book! This book is huge (600 pages) but I still wanted more. I actually decided to re-read book #1 (pulse of heroes) before reading this book. Glad I did because I had forgotten some stuff that was important to this book. Let's just say I haven't been very productive this past week! Thanks again A. Jacob Sweeny....Love your stuff!

Of Blood and Pulse by A. Jacob Sweeny is the second book in the Pulse Myth Series and did not disappoint. It picks up where Pulse of Heroes leaves off and Michelle and Elliot continue on their journey together. Sweeny’s descriptive writing put me right back into the story without a missed beat. The lands, the history, it just comes alive! I am still in awe of the way the author manages to make the story flow while teaching me all about history.

Michelle may be back from Europe but the events that took place there are fresh and vivid in her mind. Suffering from nightmares, Michelle is struggling to cope, and has only let Elliot into her confidence so far...even with his abilities, does he know everything Michelle is feeling?

Elliot is also keeping that could have devastating consequences for both himself and Michelle, if he doesn't find a solution and fast. Just when it seems that things cannot possibly get any worse for Mi

Let me start off by saying that I really liked this book. I love Elliot and Michelle, Also, even though he has just a small section of this book, I really liked Jason. I also, still feel like something is amiss with Jessica, I felt that way since she was introduced.... But again, I felt like the history could've been reigned in a bit. I only say this because, I would get to a point where Elliot would describe something in history and it would last a while and when we finally get back to Elliot a ...more
