Legacy of Blood

Book four in the Skye Morrison series, I was desperate to read this book after the cliffy in book 3!

With Skye now turned, this book takes us in a different direction. As we don't know if Skye is s goodie or baddie? So she's to be tested by the faithful, it's not going to be pretty!

Hagan takes on a bigger role in this book and I loved his take no nonsense characther in this book. If your looking for a heart throb then look no further than Archer, his is so cute and caring, but le

Wow Once I started this book I could not put it down I had to know what happen next. Skye Morrison never thought she would become a vampire until she wakes up and wonders what happen to her. She doesn't won't this life but she has no choice. Amun is a bad vampire who kidnapped Skye, and now he is in her dreams visiting her. Soon Skye realize's that Amun was the one who did this. Archer had no choice but to give Skye his Blood he did not won't to lose her. Archer and Skye finally confess their fe ...more

After the cliffhanger ending in book 3, we were left with the decision that Skye made and the choice Archer made for her... Skye's adjustment to her new immortality was at times hilarious... Amun is lusting after his creation and has given her an ultimatum and the final battle between Skye and Amun was pretty heart breaking...well for now anyway...I felt really bad for Jameson - really, really bad...but she made her choice and they all have to live with it...bring on book 5!!!!!

Skye Morrison has learned that vampires and werewolves are real. Since finding all that out, she has fallen in love with one, and secretly has a crush on another one. Being involved with vampires has changed her world, with being kidnapped and the worst that could happen…dying.

After waking up in a casket, Skye is faced with her fear. She is now a vampire and it wasn’t by her own choosing. It was either turn her or let her die, and Archer did what he thought was best and that was to make Skye on

"Legacy Of Blood" by J.L. McCoy is the fourth book in the "Skye Morrison Vampire Series" and it picks right up where the third book "The Original Sin" left off, with Skye awaking to discover she was turned into a vampire, but different as any vampire ever created before, and sired by both Amun and the vampire Archer Rhys. While she is adjusting to her new life, learning all about being a vampire, she also has to prove to the army "An Dilis" (The Faithful) that she is not a monster like Amun and ...more

The more that I read the series the more I get into them.

Skye Morrison is a woman that has found out that the unbelievable is really the believable. She puts on such a strong front but she is really holding deep secrets that make her doubt her true worth. She hates being lied to and having choices taken out of her hands. That is what she felt had been done to her. In th

I am rating this series as a whole and not book by book.

I am always excited when I hear about a new series. Especially a vampire series. My first one was the Night Huntress series by Jeaniene Frost. After that, I was hooked. I find such great pleasure in knowing there are continuations to such wonderful books!!

This series got better and better. From book one, Blood of the Son, to this book, J.L. takes us on a action packed ride that doesn't disappoint.

In this final book, Skye can't seem to catch

I anticipated this book and was so pleased to have the opportunity to have the chance to get my hands on an ARC copy, and I must say yet again J.L.McCoy hasn’t disappointed with this one.

This is book four of a series that has had me gripped from book one, as soon as I finish the latest book, I find myself thinking about the next. After the end of the third book I wanted to find out what would happen next as the ending had me on the edge of my seat, this book

Wow, oh wow!! This book didn’t disappoint me.

I opened to the first page to be induced and transported back into the world of Caleb, Olivia, Jax and Gemma. I started to read and couldn’t put the book down. I wasn’t surprised as I had had the same experience with the first two books, the storyline wrapped around me and enfolded me thoroughly taking me on the journey.

Not only was I taken on Caleb’s and Olivia’s journey I found myself being taken in by the tremendous events that surrounded Jax and G

"Legacy of Blood" is another good installment in the Skye Morrison Vampire series. This time Amun is back causing problems for Skye and the gang.

Skye has been turned into a vampire but us showing characteristics of the dark one. The special squad is brought in to determine whether she is an abomination and should be put to death. Until the determination is made, she is guarded non stop by Oleif from the special squad. He makes it more than clear of his dislike for her.

So after seriously wanting to slap Skye in The Original Sin for her behaviour, particularly towards the lovely Trey, I was relieved to see her back at almost her kick-ass self! Some of Skye's exchanges with Ruarc and Olief had me literally laughing out loud, and I felt this was the part of Skye the reader had missed during her darker times.
In Legacy for Blood there is a transition for all the characters as they adjust to developments and the reader has a different perspective as we view the vamp

Favourite Line “I need you safe, Archer; your family needs you safe. I won’t be able to do what I need to do if I’m worried about you." "I can't lose you to him Skye"

Whew! Man these books have been an emotional roller coaster for our poor girl Skye!! I was heart broken when she left my boy but, wow her and her new love are so adorable and sexy!! Anyway
So crazy guy Amun BLEW HIS ESSENCE INTO SKYE so she was changing into a crazy DarkOne just like him but, Archer couldn't let that happen so he qui

Loved the new book. Wow the ups and downs really suck you in and before you know it - you have finished the book. (of course - this happens with all good books.. ;)) Mrs. McCoy has done it again with LOB - it was everything she promised! My only diliema now is waiting for the next one - ;).

This book is about the struggles that Skye must face with her new life as a vampire. Is she like Amun or Archer's family? Who will she choose - Amun, Jameson, or Archer? Will she survive the tests from the Fai

With my progression through the Skye Morrison series they have always got better and this one continues which is great as my first review was perhaps a bit harsh looking back. It's definitely a series to get into and progress through the books.

This book has a good mix of romance and action, I also loved all the humour aspects too. If you like your vampire stories then this is a must read for you.

I loved the way this book flowed and there is no messing about with un-needed writing this time. You'

Legacy of Blood - book 4 - 5 stars
This has to be my favorite book from the series. The beginning books are very important but this was the most action packed. The changes in Skye are incredible during this story. It was amazing to see how her relationships changed and developed with everyone. She has her hands full evading and finding Amun all at the same time.
I don't want to give anything away but I am super excited to see that there is going to be a book 5. That means more sexy, dominating Ar

*I was gifted this book by the author, in exchange for an honest review*

...I honestly have no clue where to start with this book. I ADORED it.
As an author, it is so hard to make the reader feel what the character feels...fright, anger, hunger...and J.L. totally nailed it! I was anxious with Skye, worried for her, intrigued by her and with her.

Oh. There are no adequate words for my love and adoration.

GREAT cover by the way!

Utter heartbreak

Another great read in the series. Skye is not just your ordinary vampire, she is so much more than anyone thought possible. Archer and Skye finally get together! About time right! Amun is determined to make Skye his mate and during the stand off with Amun someone close to the family is killed. Skye's power is revealed and she makes the ultimate sacrifice in order to save her family from Amun once and for all. The confrontation between Skye and Jameson tore me into pieces. Poor Ja

Wow. Fantastic.

I bought this when it first came out and forgot I had it.
I started reading it this morning and couldn't put it down. Finished at 6pm
I love the way Skye has turned out. (Not saying anything I dont want to give away anything.)

It's a bit more sappier than I like but it's not enough to turn you off.
Has a lot of similarities to Chigagoland Vampire series By Chloe Neill. The way both girls turned out after being turned and being loved by the head vampire (boss).

Can't wait for #5

amazing! but I really didn't expect anything less! I'm super excited that the story is continuing!!! I was kind of sad when I started the book because I thought it was the last.

as always, J.L. is a fantastic writer with an imagination that is out of this world. the cover for this book is beautiful. I was on the edge of my seat the whole book. Skyes trials were so heart breaking but I knew she could overcome. the story flowed and was fly by the seat of your pants exciting! cant wait for book five

J.L. McCoy has outdone herself with Legacy of Blood! The story was fast-paced and engaging from the first sentence. Skye's character has developed so much over the course of the series. While I admit I wanted to choke her the whole last book, J.L. gives us the full explanation for her full on drama queen behavior. LOB gives us an evolving main character that I look forward to continue watching.
