Blood Destiny is the first book in Tessa Dawn's Blood Curse series and the start to an exciting series.
I have to say, I was pretty excited to find out about this series because I adore vampires but they've been done to death and I'm pretty sure I've read them all. Blood Destiny is edgy, fast paced and sexy, with vampires, shifters, mages, gods and goddess making up this unique world and complex characters. The writing isn't perfect in that there were some moments of cheesiness and the telepathi...more
This was a pretty good first book in the Blood Curse series. I read this with my friend, Sharon, and i agree with her that there are some similarities with Christine Feehan's Carpathian series...and it's mostly because of the way these vampires carry themselves/act and speak to their woman...very old school vampire novel.
I would have to say that the one thing i didn't care for much was the romance between the two main characters..well...at least in the 1st half of the book...ac...more

The mythos: the Blood Curse which is put on the vamps, who are human descendants of an ancient royal family. One concession of this curse is that some of these descendants get to have a destined mate, and has to convert-her-or-die. Yet, while reading this cumbersome tale of these descendants, divided by two brothers, two houses, good and evil, and twins begetting twins, I couldn't help but hope for an injection of cleverness of dialogue and character.
From the ancient royals, twin broth...more

HOLY SHIT! That is all I can say about this book. I am going to say something only because it is absolutely true; this is one of the BEST books I have read in my life. It is everything I ever wanted my vampires to be, scary as hell and yet too sexy for your eyes...more
This is a fresh look into a world of vampires. It's definitely got some dark moments. (Please, be warned that some of the scenes in this book are very dark and disturbing!) But it has it's fair share of humor! It's full of passion and emotion. It has a lot of suspen...more
Ms. Dwan puts a new and creative twist to the ancient vampire warriors tale. I loved the concept of the cursed vampires bloodlines, and oh my the execution is just masterful and unique. The plot has all the elements I love in a good vampire history. It's all romantic, humorous, unpredictable, dark, disturbing & gory and un-put-down-able.
Yes! Un-put-down-able!!! If you love all these elements into a bo...more

You would think that with all the vampires books I've read over the past several years that I would be burned out. You couldn't be more wrong. Whenever I find a dark fantasy novel with vampires and lycans I gobble them up like turkey on Thanksgiving Day.
Blood Destiny, by Tessa Dawn, is the first book in the Blood Curse series. It is a really interesting book. I love the differences between the vampires that Tessa Dawn has created. I eve...more

While there are vampire tales a plenty, I find that these vampires are enough different that it makes them intriguing in of themselves. Add the story, the antagonist, and the (at times) extreme challenges that they must face and it makes this a must read for me.
