I have reached my breaking point. And now I will not, cannot be stopped. With the Soul Eater on the verge of god status, it's time for me to take a final stand, even if it means losing everything I love. Even if it means losing my life.I've got plenty of power on my side, and some I didn't know I could count on in the first place. But it's nothing compared to the army of t ...more

"No one’s place in this world is guaranteed. Not everyone is going to get a happy ending. But life isn’t about how it ends. It’s about the moments between. It’s about the small things. The way our loved ones laugh. The sight of a butterfly in the sunlight after a year or two in the darkness."

I really don't know what to say about this series. I thought the concept and execution of the first book was so interesting, but the ongoing plot in the rest of the books got increasingly murky and unsatisfying. This final book was very slow, the showdown was anticlimactic, and the book didn't even really tie up all of the loose ends established in the series. I thought that Cyrus' character was completely misused in this book--I got to the point where I really just didn't understand the point o ...more
Rating: 2.5 stars I would have to really struggle to find myself rating this book any higher than this.

All Soul’s Night is the Last book in the Blood Ties series by Jennifer Armintrout. Some won’t be happy with my review, while others who have also suffered along with me through this series to get to the end, will agree with most of what I’m saying. Hopefully ::grin::

So, in summary of the books events since most of it was background noise for what really happens in the end, here is your run down

I really enojyed this book. This whole series was something I actually got into a lot. The only thing that disapointed me was that this is the last book of the series. I really wish we heard for from the characters, I fould Cyrus wasn't finished. I felt I could read more of his story and more of the rest of the characters stories.But all in all I really enjoyed the series...I just hoped for more books. Which isn't bad. I don't not like how the author ended it, I just hoped for more is all. I fou ...more

No quarto livro da série Blood Ties, Carrie vê-se a ir contra os seus limites e descobre que pode perder mais do que aquilo que ela desejaria.
Eu adoraria dizer que uma personagem que muita gente gosta está de volta,, mas como ainda tenho esperança que vá ser editado em Portugal, não vou dizer, a não ser que me peçam muito.
Mas pronto, alguém vai voltar, mais adulta e mais fria e escura.

In this book it's not only good against evil, it's also the good guys wondering how evil they are capable to become to defeat the Soul Eater.

Ziggy's coming back, totally changed by his sire's wickedness, now an adult person, darker than ever, and making you wondering at every single page who's side is he going to be, and yet knowing it from the beginning was awesome.
Carrie, becoming more powerful, dangerous and decided than she's ever been, being capable of things no one could expect from her,

Carrie and Co are back with this last instalment of the Blood Ties Series. When Carries beloved Nathan is kidnapped by his supposedly dead son and took to Jacob the Soul Eater, Carries life dramatically changes for the worst when she rescues him. With the dreaded ritual coming up to make Jacob a god, Dahila locked in Carries head and Carrie receiving her magic power, things are pretty crazy. Will they stop Jacob in time? Or will they be too late?

I was actually rather disappointed in this book. I have been following this series from the beginning and I feel I have taken every twist and turn with Jennifer Armintrout-- even the ones I wasn't ready for...(ie. Ziggy and Bill's relationship....) but I feel like the wrap up for the book was terrible. I don't know if Armintrout got sick of her characters and needed to wrap up the book in such a way as there can be no sequel or what. What was the point of introducing Bill in the series at this p ...more

You would recommend this book to? People who love sex and gore.
Which is practically why this book completely grew on me over night. I really didn't like the ending... it was too fairy tale. I was really getting into the darkness of it. I mean the whole story has been sort of fucked up and not fairy tale, except for the amount of fantasy, but this is a vampire novel, so it works. Those who have read it will know that the gore in this was very different.. in fact.. it was pretty disgusting, but I

Opinião aqui:

Quem me acompanha aqui mais atentamente ou no meu canal sabe que uma das séries que mais me surpreendeu nos últimos tempos foi a série “Laços de Sangue” da autora Jenifer Armintrout. É uma série de vampiros e, eu de vampiros apenas tinha lido a série Crepúsculo. Na altura tinha gostado mas, desde essa aí nunca mais tinha pegado numa história de vampiros. Quando peguei no primeiro livro da série “A Iniciação”, fiquei viciada e percebi que esta

A slow, uneven read that finally picked up some steam with the last fifty pages or so.

What investment I'd found in the characters of Carrie, Nathan and Cyrus disappeared with this installment. Max and Bella seemed to be nothing more than add-on characters this time. Sort of an "Oh yeah, they're in the story too, I should write something about them as well." moment for Ms. Armintrout.

The one bright spot in this book was the introduction of Bill and his involvement with the other characters. I fee

I am so glad this book is the final in the series. I only read it because I had to know how it ended. This seires just wasn't the greatest for me. How many times can Cyrus die and come back to life? I feel like I was watching Days of Our Lives.

A full 5 stars! Out of the darkness of all Souls' Night, comes light
All Soul's Night is the satisfying conclusion to a series that has reinvented itself with every book. Vampires Carrie and Nathan are taking a breather before the final battle to stop the cunning Soul-Eater whose powers grow with each vampire soul he 'drinks, a battle that they are ill equiped to fight. After withholding his love for three books, Nathan is finally ready to love Carrie, but Carrie is now the one holding herself ap

Jennifer Armintrout's Blood Ties is the best contemporary vampire series I've read in recent years. Blood Ties tops out Charlaine Harris' "Sookie Stackhouse" series and also MaryJanice Davidson's "Queen Betsy" series by FAR! Our main protagonist and heroine Carrie has wit and intelligence that the ditzy, annoying and ridiculous females from the aforementioned series above lack considerably.

All Souls Night is the fourth and final book of the Blood Ties series in which Carrie and gang must conquer

Fiendishly Bookish
At long last, Armintrout's edgy and recalcitrant vampire heroine Carrie Ames faces off against the Soul Eater in the final novel of the series.

This time, Carrie has definitely got more than game going for her. Armed with powers culled from Dahlia's blood (and she'll need more), she might finally have what it takes to crush Jacob Seymour once and for all-and she might actually be able to walk away from it alive (read: undead) or somewhere in between (that's a teaser folks)

This is the fourth and final book in the Blood Ties series. Readers who've stuck with the series through each blood soaked page will be either greatly relieved or incredibly disappointed at the happy all wrapped up ending..well except for one major character that I hope is still alive and living a quiet debauched life somewhere safe. Because the books are so connected, it is hard to give a review on this book alone without discussing the entire series. This book begins at about the 6th month mar ...more

Carrie and crew are ready for their final showdown with the Soul Eater. Many people don't escape unharmed and their is carnage and twists aplenty. This story finds a way to wrap up all the loose 'blood' ties and I was completely satisfied with the conclusion. I have wavered with these books and found them to be quite uneven. This book made it worth the entire struggle (sometimes) and joy (sometimes) to get here. Carrie finally gets her head on straight and sees herself and others as they are and ...more

Carrie is a vampire as well as Max, and Ziggy in addition there is Bill and Nathan who are both humans. As much time as Bill hangs out with vampires he will never understand their hunger need for blood. The Soul Eater has rallied up an army of vampires. Carrie always knew this day would come and now it’s here. Carrie is ready to put a stop to the Soul Eater even if it means she has to sacrifice her life to do so.

I would not recommend reading this book without having first read the other three b

As I was reading this book, there were times I thought I would be giving it a 3-star rating, and at other times it had solid 5-star elements. Overall, I'm going to go with 4 stars because I did enjoy it and I think it was a really great end to the series.

The aspects to this book (and the series as a whole) that didn't quite hit the mark with me were the characters' relationships. Sometimes they seemed to know everything about each other, their motivations for doing things, etcetera, despite havi

Ultimo capitolo di questa saga che tutto sommato merita!
Carrie è giunta alla battaglia finale con il Divoratore di Anime e deve ancora una volta salvare il suo amato dalle sue grinfie.
Ho apprezzato questo libro maggiormente rispetto ai precedenti per il semplice fatto che c'è più azione.
Lo stile rimane scorrevole e nonostante in alcune circostanze avrei presto a sberle Carrie, il libro si legge con una certa frenesia per sapere come va a finire.
Punto focale di questa saga sono i vampiri, ma

I loved this finale to the series the most. I thought it was great to hear from Ziggy and i was so glad to see he got some happiness. And i was glad to see Max again, though he was quite distracted. And i liked the new addition of Bill, i quite liked him. But partway though the book it made me quite sad, because it was ending and i couldn't bear to finish it but i was scared to finish it because everything seemed to be hopeless.

This series ended up being such a disappointment. The first book, The Turning, held such promise and was an interesting read with good potential for a series.

Unfortunately, The Turning was a fluke on the part of the author. She really should have stopped there because each progressive book just got worse. The story-lines became more far-fetched and ridiculous with each new book. The end to the whole series was laugh-out-loud absurd. I am glad I listed to the last two books because I was able to

“No one's place in this world is guaranteed. Not everyone is going to get a happy ending. But life isn't about how it ends. It's about the moments between. It's about the small things. The way our loved ones laugh. The sight of a butterfly in the sunlight after a year or two in the darkness. The love and support of an old friend. They might not be with us in body, but they are with us in spirit. The feeling of something we'd thought lost to us forever returned in a single, life-changing moment. Yes, that is simple, even though it might be momentous to us as individuals. Because every day, on this planet, people are born and people die and stranger things happen. But I know my place now, and my purpose. And no matter what trial you have to endure to find that out...
It's worth it.”
