Short Review - I would have given this a 3, but the last 2 pages completely broke the series in my opinion. I really wanted to give this a 1 for how bad the ending was, but that would be unfair to the previous pages. The bulk of the story is mainly about her political life, and the toils of creating a society. If you enjoy reading about Lissa and her mate’s life this is the book for you. If you preferred the danger/action/ and risk of the first books then you’re probably going to be a little dis ...more

this series has made a sharp turn after book five, and now it is very hard to keep track of all the things that are going on and all the people that are in it. there are too many characters, it would have been better if they were less but more of the interaction between them was shown. But most importantly i was kind of annoyed at Lissa, i mean she's a queen who saved the world and she still allows everyone to tell her what to do on her own planet. moreover, she acts like a teenager disappearing ...more

I honestly friggin' loved these books up until book 6. Book 6 was okay but honestly we were treading too close for comfort into Anita Blake territory. And when I say treading what I really mean is slapped upside the head with it...out of nowhere. Unfortunately the same thing happened with the Anita Blake series. It was going along strong, I was loving it and then BAM total change of direction for the series and I just wasn't feeling it. I'm not in to slut shaming, two consenting adults can do wh ...more

update to my previous rant -- I can Not believe I finished this book. I don't know if I'll bother writing a real review... Maybe later. For now just a rating, 2.5

...frustrated!!! I'm going on a rant, but maybe somebody can tell me if it's even worth continuing this series... I'm no quitter but I just don't know.....

We went from Urban Fantasy with book 1-5, which I really enjoyed, to a Sci-Fi Series with books 6 and now 7. I don't mind sci-fi at all bu

Normally I do a plot summary to start reviews, but really what’s the point? Lissa is awesome, faces absolutely no conflict or difficulty and is now ruling an entire functioning planet by wont of her Sueishness. Everything works out because it just does, there’s no conflict or complications and Lissa is just totally awesome and super powerful all the time.

Oh dear gods it gets worse. It actually gets worse

See, Lissa, the worst person of in the universe, Supreme Queen of Mary Sues is now in charge
I'm a huge fan of this series and have been waiting for this book and wishing the time would go faster so i can get my hands on it.
I love Lissa's world but that world has been expanding at a rapid pace so much so that I'm finding it hard to keep track of all the different characters and their interdependent relationships. The major shift introduced into the plot during the last couple of books such as the reincarnation of many old characters who are now the parent/child/niece/nephew/husband or
FABULOUS! I just love this series. In my top ten favorites of all time. I love the world that has been created and feel so attached to the characters. One of my favorite things is the witty banter and I love the sarcastic nature of Lissa, such a kindred spirit! I will read this whole series again once it is complete and that is saying alot since I rarely read a book twice. The imagery is so detailed I feel like I have visited le ath veronis. I am anxiously awaiting the high demon series as well

Blood Rebellion, the seventh book in the Blood Destiny series by Connie Suttle, rises to new heights in the development of the characters, especially Lissa. Having quelled the subversive elements that surrounded her as she ascended to the throne in Blood Queen, Lissa now finds herself discovering even more about her past and her family.

Lissa faces the massive undertaking of creating a new society on the vampire planet, Le-Ath Veronis, from building entirely new cities, establishing representativ

Most difficult of the series emotionally; lots of character flaws and tragedy here.

This novel opens seven months into the re-habitation of Le-Ath Veronis and covers roughly a two year period of time. Lissa and her mates are dealing with the multitude of issues that arise from building a society from the ground up - laws, infrastructure, entertainment, etc. It's overwhelming sometimes just reading about it. This novel has so many personal issues, though, that I think it may top the list of the mo

Lissa is having issues with her new world. Being Queen is not all it's cracked up to be, and now she's facing issues with her mates, and people who may betray her. Things just aren't looking up for her, and she doesn't know how to deal with it.

This book was actually sad at times. I felt really bad for Lissa, and it was difficult to read about her issues she was having. And I really didn't like how her planet was changing. I liked this one, but it wasn't

Ok, so now that Lissa has somewhat of a handle on her current situation, with being a Queen of a whole freaking planet, things begin to look familiar, with plots to kill her. Other than the betrayals and attempts on her life, nothing is the same and Lissa is trying to find her place in this new world and time.

I, for one, was very excited about this new turn the series had taken with Lissa, until now. Three hundred years ago on earth Lissa was in her own element, but here on Le-Ath Veronis, she i

3.5 Not bad but not as good as the.others

I think it may be because just touching on and most of it kind of skimmed over because It was done from afar I guess you could say. I loved that pancake back but I think I liked more of the hands on fights instead of bam! every one is dead and gone. Still interesting in the parts with relationships like with Haven or whatever his name is....yea so many people to keep track of, which usually in books I can handle. I could here too honestly I didn't have a

Oh boi so much has happen where to start.

First off I must say I enjoyed every book I feel like I don't want Lissa's Journey to end.

Lissa has lost 2 loves but has gained a new one at the end this book. I want her to have children I think she deserves it more than anything. She has done so much for the universe and I think that should be her reward with being able to have children for her 13 now 14 mates including the one that doesn't remember her.

This series started in a refreshing manner. Now after plugging away through book 7 I am not sure what I think! What started as a great urban fantasy series is quickly spinning off kilter in to way out there sci-fi. As I keep my spiral beside me so I can keep track of who is who and who has been reborn as what, and let's forget about remotely pronounceable names, at the end of the book I can't help but smile and feel basically good about life. I am on to book 8. A series that started at five star ...more

After book 6, the series have come out of urban fantasy and gone a sci-fi route.
My hugest complain about the series is the number of characters, planets, and races to remember.
When book 7 came out I only read chapter 1, til I realized that I could not remember most characters. So I waited until book 9 and re-read everything. The experience was much better.
As always Lissa has her heart broken by those closest to her. Her enemies don't do as much damage.

Insane, but somehow addictive. I still read it in one go, but first 5 books are my favorite before the mess with multiple mates started. Lissa still saves the world (in this case, multiple universes) while managing to bake cookies under any conditions. She still has to deal with multiple betrayals and heartbreaks. In that regard not much changed. I find I can't judge these books harshly, as they turned from a simple urban fantasy in such a wild sci-fi they stand on they own.

This book sucked. Too many people to keep track of. Too many places she folded in and out of. I hate Lissa- she's whiny and indecisive, and falls to pieces too easily. When I started rooting for the (far too many) main characters to die, I knew I had to give this book 1 star. Last book got a 2 stars rating. I bought the first 8 books all at once instead of buying one at a time as I finished them, and I'm really sorry that I wasted my money.
Jan 05, 2012 Beth rated it liked it
I like her story telling but there are way too many characters to keep up with. In some spots she goes into great detail about what everyone was eating and who they are sitting by but then there is some sort of battle scene and she glosses over the events and all the enemy are suddenly dead. What I'm trying to say is that she needs to focus more on the story telling and less on adding a million new characters. I liked it though.
This is review is for books 4-7. I think I may have a problem.... I have found a series that I am seriously having trouble putting down. I stayed up until five am to finish two of the books. Man, they just have everything. The story just tugs at your heart and I love all the action. I just honestly cannot stop reading this series. I am so glad I came across it!
Jan 16, 2016 Vermillionice rated it it was ok
I sometimes feel this series could have been half the size if the author had no decided to just shove more drama into the protagonist's lives.
Almost everyone betrays her and Lissa gets to show us how special she is by being so forgiving and resilient as she shoulders the guilt for everything as well as feeling betrayed by those that "love" her.

This is a great addition to the Blood Destiny series. Lissa is now Queen of the Vampire Planet and is dealing with setting up a planetary government. The hardest trial she faces in this book is the betrayal by one of her inner circle. Anyone who enjoys Vampire books will enjoy "Blood Rebellion".
I think I am going to have to stop reading this series because I am getting confused about all of the men. I can't remember who is who anymore which is really bad because I read a lot and usually don't have problems remembering who the characters are. It especially bad when there is only a month or two between releases with this series.

Much as I have enjoyed this series, I can no longer keep track of all the personalities who take care of Lissa, and make love to her, treat her like a very fragile flower ... which she is not.
