I so enjoyed this book. Mr. Taylor is an incredibly creative writer that I have so much respect for. His vampire tales are so very different than what I have ever read or could ever create. His use of time, scenery, truth, and fiction, blend together in such a marvelous way, the story begins to take a life of its own; making it hard to put the book down. I loved "Blood Pressure" more than "Bite Marks", and I think it's because his tale took place in a past that I have read so much about and is v ...more

This was like eating a bag of cookies: enjoyable but not filling.

There was a large span of time between me reading Bite Marks and Blood Pressure. I had only a vague memories of the plot to Bite Marks going into Blood Pressure. That in my opinion was because the first book in this series didn't really stand out in any special way. I remember simply having mixed feeling about it.

I am glad I decided to read Blood Pressure though because it was drastically better. This second book in the series definitely left a memorable impression. With the addition of the high

This seems like just an extension of the other book that this book references extensively - Bite Marks. The references make me feel like I'm missing out by not reading Bite Marks, like all the action happened in this other book and this book chronicles the aftermath of that.

I'm not even entirely sure what the climax was; the rescue, the cure(s), or a few other things that happened in between and after. The book was thoroughly anti-climatic, but did have a few interesting scenes. The chapters ju

Terence Taylor, you sick dude, you've done it again! Where do you come up with this stuff?!

Blood Pressure picks up 20 years later from where Bite Marks left off. While it started a little slower than Bite Marks and didn't quite have the gore and creepiness, once it took off, it took off and there was no stopping it! I appreciated the characters that returned from Bite Marks and loved the new characters, especially Turner Creed. I can't wait for your next Vampire Testament!

Thank you Goodreads Fir

a sequel that is not disappointing....just finished it! I enjoyed the storyline and will probably read the next one (assuming there is a next one). A weaver of sorts, I loved the way Taylor wove Zora Neale Hurston and the Harlem Renaissance throughout the novel. I have to admit, I did fall in love with Turner Creed and hope he appears in later books. Clean Slate was not clear or satisfying, but sufficed for its purpose. Now onto another summer/supernatural/vampire novel...what should it be? Pass ...more
