O meu pai sempre me disse que o medo é uma fraqueza. Ora, isso é fácil de dizer quando não temos de nos preocupar com caçadores de vampiros e água benta. Detesto o medo, mas a vida, ou melhor, a morte continua.Nos dois meses que passaram desde que fui atacada, na morgue do hospital, e transformada em vampiro, já matei o meu amo malévolo, Cyrus, apaixonei-me pelo meu novo a...more

Meh. This series started with so much potential. Possession had a decent beginning and the writing and characters were consistent with The Turning, unfortunately the novel very quickly delved into the realms of paranormal soap opera. In a matter of days, people fall into the sort of lourve that makes them plead, “I’ll kill my own granny to save you! Your hemorrhoid pain is my pain! If you die then I will eat nothing but boogers until I also succumb, because not only can I not live without you, b...more

"A Possessão" é o segundo livro da série "Laços de Sangue". Depois de um primeiro livro, "A Iniciação", muito bom e original, este segundo foi simplesmente impossível de largar. Uma narrativa cruel, mas apaixonada, com um ritmo estonteante, deixa-nos presos à leitura desde a primeira palavra à última.

Carrie anda com pesadelos. Quando acorda, Nathan está sentado a olhar para ela... O facto de Nathan andar a vigiar o sono dela é mau sinal. Nunca nada de bom advém daí. É como se ele conseguisse pre...more

Okay I didn't really like the first book in this series much but I already had the second book downloaded on audio so I figured I might as well listen to it. I guess I can't say it was a waste of time because I was driving while I listened to it, but I can say I won't be reading any more of these books.

In this book Cyrus is brought back to life as a human and Nathan runs around mad possessed by something. There you have the majority of the book. Many pages are spent on Cyrus angsting about how h...more

Wow! And now for something completely different....

The Possession, unlike its predecessor is a character study and it is very well done. Back again from The Turning (Blood Ties, Book 1) are Carrie, Nathan, Cyrus (yes, Cyrus) and Max. There have been a lot of complaints from other reviewers about the shift between Points of View in the book, but the view used here for Cyrus and Max allowed the author, Jennifer Armintrout, put us into their heads. Instead of getting just what the characters perce...more

This book had me hooked the moment I opened it up. Dr. Carrie was attacked by a former patient. While checking on her patient in the morgue, she was attacked by something "inhuman", and was turned into a vampire.

Flash forward to book two, The Possession, and the drama, lust and loyalty come into play. Something horrible takes hold of Carrie's sire Nathan and their good friend Max, has been hired to kill him. These are direct orders from The Movement. Max knows that he has a hard call to make. Go...more

When vampirehood finally seems calm and settled for Carrie Ames, her lover and sire gets possessed, or so she thinks. Nathan is out of control and even murders an innocent woman, which grants him a death order from the Vampire Execution Movement. When things seem bad enough, Carrie’s former sire is brought back to life as a human. These shocking events add up to a bigger plan; the Soul Eater and his desire to become a God. Can Carrie save both Nathan and Cyrus?

From the first book I gathered thi...more

i thought that this book was great! I actually thought that possession flowed better and i really enjoyed seeing the story from other characters point of view. It was great to have more characters and to get to know them, and not just Carrie's perception of them. And I was glad that Carrie herself grew a little and unlike some other readers I do like Carrie. what do some people seriously expect of her? To be super emotionally strong and bulletproof? What you have to realise is that people are no...more

Book Two in the Blood Ties Series and I want to really like this series, but keep feeling there is just something missing. I know exactly where that something is: the romance.

It's really not working for me, BUT the story still is. So, I'm in a difficult position. Read on because the story & plot is good and just hope the romance side starts to make sense OR give it up now. Blood Ties is on a precipice for me, teetering over the edge, but not quite completely lost.

The story this time included...more

Synopsis: Cyrus is somehow brought back from the dead by his Soul Eater father, and is now human. He is forced to rely on a human girl who he names "Mouse" and they end up falling in love and doing the horizonal mamba. Thanks to Carrie, "Mouse" is left behind and killed which makes Cyrus want to kill Carrie all over again. Cyrus is the only character in the book that you truly want to root for, and that is just plain sad after everything that happened in the previous book.

Carrie, a former MD, ha...more

I really enjoyed the first book. The writing was solid, the plot was solid, and it flowed well with minimal editing needing. The characters were all engaging, and though I saw hints of the Anita-Blake threesome going on with the love triangle, I hoped she'd move away from that crap and take the high road.

She didn't. Not only is the only AWESOME character in the trio mostly absent, what little time he does play in the book is...meh. There is far too much time spent with the jerk character (you kn...more

grrr there was nothing at all redeeming about this book. i tried so hard to give it a chance i wasted hours of my life reading it but in the end it was just awful. on the bright side this one was way less traumatizing. on the down side it ended up for the most part just being plain boring. i found myself skimming pages because they just had so much unnecessaryness. the writing in this one was just plain awful. a pretty substantial portion of the sentences were so poorly worded i could barely tel...more

The highlight of book 2 of the Blood Ties series is Cyrus' transformation back to a human. He's human now and is initially ready to fall back into the evil ways. Cyrus had a vulnerability and neediness that made a somewhat sympathetic character despite the fact that he shouldn't have been at all likeable. We are made to understand the loss and seeking of love and approval that warped Cyrus in his previous life. He finally develops the ability to love, he finally gains the loves he has always sou...more

Yes, it is really cheesy, but I am a cheesy person.
I like cheese.

I like it because it is not predictable...people aren't perfect, relationships don't always end well, and it can be pretty damn violent.
I guess it fits into the romance novel category because of the sex, but it seems like something else to me. Vampire fiction...vamp-fic. Yup, that should be a category at the bookshop.

Will this story ever END? OMG it was dragged out...I was thinking 2.5, but it wasn't bad, it was just...there.
The first book in this series was really good. I've read a lot of authors that write plot building books in their series, and I am assuming this is hers. I'll have to see how book three goes.
Rhi
I enjoyed it! I don't have much more to say.
I like Armintrout's writing style, I think she creates great dialogue between her characters. Actually, I think she creates great characters in general!
Is it a life changing read? Nah. But so what, not everything has to be.
Maria
I loved this book even more than the first of the series!I don't have a lot to say,only that it has a lot of OMG moments and scenes that make you cry!I like the writing style of the author and the development of the main characters.

This is so much worse than the first book, which I didn't have a high opinion of to begin with. I just. . .

Okay. (view spoiler) I loved that, and his story was way more interesting than Carrie and Nathan's. Still, he spends a lot of his time back whining and it just wasn't that great to read. I loved watching his change though and I definitely get what Armintrout was trying to do.

Carrie and Nathan, though.. I mean, finding out at the end that (view spoiler)...more

Der zweite Band setzt etwas zwei Monate nach den Ereignissen von Band 1 ein und direkt auf den ersten Seiten erfahren wir, dass Cyrus von den Toten zurückgeholt wird. Nur ist er kein Vampir mehr sondern ein Mensch. Doch warum geschieht das und wer hat Interesse an seiner Wiederaufstehung? Noch dazu als schwacher Mensch..

Dann wechselt die Erzählperspektive und wir sind bei Carrie und Nathan. Während Carrie ihren Schöpfer aufrichtig liebt, wird Nathan noch immer von der Schuld am Tod seiner Frau v...more

É mais uma série que defenitivamente vou continuar a seguir.
Tem uma história/enredo bastante criativos, e uma nova abordagem ao já vasto assunto Vampirico.

I wasn't that impressed with this book, although I loved the first of the series. This books plot moved slower, and wasn't as interesting.

All of the favorite and not so favorite characters are back. While the back of the book talks a lot about Nathan, his character does have much to do with this book other than to serve as a catalyst for many of the events that take place. Nathan begins behaving erratically, goes off a on bit of a rampage, and disappears. Max and Carrie, after looking at the evidence, determine that Nathan's behavioral changes are somehow connected to the Soul Easter. They fly to Madrid to seek a stay of execution...more

Jessica (Taking It One Book at a Time)
Following the first book in the series, The Turning, Possessed was slightly all over the place for me. In the first book every thought, scene & emotion came from Carrie, in this book they came from Carrie, Max, Bella, almost every other character in the book as well. I can understand to make a story come together and make the bigger picture work you need to P.O.V. of all some of the characters, but not all of them. Jennifer still did a good capturing my attention with Carrie & Nathan's r...more

I have been reading Jennifer Armintrout's blog for a few months now; I stumbled across it when I was searching to see if Thomas Hardy quotes were used completely out of context in a certain book about abuse and selfishness, oh wait, true love and "BDSM". I love her blog, and decided I wanted to read one of her books. My local bookstores do not have any of her books, and I was waiting until I could afford to make an online order when I found this one in a thrift shop. I hesitated for a moment bec...more

Having covered the whole "becoming a vampire and figuring out the workings of the vampire world" thing in Book 1, this book finds Carrie already established and having survived her first battles as a vampire. Things seem to be going fairly well, when suddenly her boyfriend/vampire sire, Nathan, is possessed by some entity or other and vanishes. He kills a mortal, so the "Movement," or vampire enforcers, issue a death warrant. Meanwhile, Carrie must travel to Death Valley to find the one person w...more

My review of the first book "The Turning" was less than stellar. I had qualms about whether I would like this series. I can say that I am extremely glad that I went on to read "Possession". Here we meet up with Carrie and Nathan, cozy and content until Nathan becomes possessed. About the same time, miles away, Cyrus, Carries evil and dead first sire, is pulled from a deathly limbo to find himself in this world again, and human. Human Cyrus is maybe even more interesting the cruel, pshyco vampire...more

I mean that truly and sincerely, from the very core of my being. But I'm tired. Please imagine what it's like to be raised from the dead by a deranged vampire-motorcyle-gang-religious cult, only to be dragged across the country in a van driven by your ex-lover and fledgling who hates you and no longer sympathizes with the human need for waste elimination. I have neither the energy nor the inclination to write a ten page statement officially apologizing for the evils of my past, and if you expect me to, kindly throw yourself beneath the wheels of a moving train.” 9 likes
