I have reached my breaking point. And now I will not, cannot be stopped. With the Soul Eater on the verge of god status, it's time for me to take a final stand, even if it means losing everything I love. Even if it means losing my life.I've got plenty of power on my side, and some I didn't know I could count on in the first place. But it's nothing compared to the army of t ...more

"No one’s place in this world is guaranteed. Not everyone is going to get a happy ending. But life isn’t about how it ends. It’s about the moments between. It’s about the small things. The way our loved ones laugh. The sight of a butterfly in the sunlight after a year or two in the darkness."

I really don't know what to say about this series. I thought the concept and execution of the first book was so interesting, but the ongoing plot in the rest of the books got increasingly murky and unsatisfying. This final book was very slow, the showdown was anticlimactic, and the book didn't even really tie up all of the loose ends established in the series. I thought that Cyrus' character was completely misused in this book--I got to the point where I really just didn't understand the point o ...more

Rating: 2.5 stars I would have to really struggle to find myself rating this book any higher than this.

All Soul’s Night is the Last book in the Blood Ties series by Jennifer Armintrout. Some won’t be happy with my review, while others who have also suffered along with me through this series to get to the end, will agree with most of what I’m saying. Hopefully ::grin::

So, in summary of the books events since most of it was background noise for what really happens in the end, here is your run down

I really enojyed this book. This whole series was something I actually got into a lot. The only thing that disapointed me was that this is the last book of the series. I really wish we heard for from the characters, I fould Cyrus wasn't finished. I felt I could read more of his story and more of the rest of the characters stories.But all in all I really enjoyed the series...I just hoped for more books. Which isn't bad. I don't not like how the author ended it, I just hoped for more is all. I fou ...more

In this book it's not only good against evil, it's also the good guys wondering how evil they are capable to become to defeat the Soul Eater.

Ziggy's coming back, totally changed by his sire's wickedness, now an adult person, darker than ever, and making you wondering at every single page who's side is he going to be, and yet knowing it from the beginning was awesome.
Carrie, becoming more powerful, dangerous and decided than she's ever been, being capable of things no one could expect from her,

Carrie and Co are back with this last instalment of the Blood Ties Series. When Carries beloved Nathan is kidnapped by his supposedly dead son and took to Jacob the Soul Eater, Carries life dramatically changes for the worst when she rescues him. With the dreaded ritual coming up to make Jacob a god, Dahila locked in Carries head and Carrie receiving her magic power, things are pretty crazy. Will they stop Jacob in time? Or will they be too late?

I was actually rather disappointed in this book. I have been following this series from the beginning and I feel I have taken every twist and turn with Jennifer Armintrout-- even the ones I wasn't ready for...(ie. Ziggy and Bill's relationship....) but I feel like the wrap up for the book was terrible. I don't know if Armintrout got sick of her characters and needed to wrap up the book in such a way as there can be no sequel or what. What was the point of introducing Bill in the series at this p ...more

You would recommend this book to? People who love sex and gore.
Which is practically why this book completely grew on me over night. I really didn't like the ending... it was too fairy tale. I was really getting into the darkness of it. I mean the whole story has been sort of fucked up and not fairy tale, except for the amount of fantasy, but this is a vampire novel, so it works. Those who have read it will know that the gore in this was very different.. in fact.. it was pretty disgusting, but I

The Soul Eater is about to become a god. The Oracle took out the vampire headquarters and no help is coming from that quarter. It is down to a ragtag team consisting of Carrie Ames, a baby vampire, Nathan, a vampire with a connection to the soul eater, Max, a vampire-werewolf hybrid, and Cyrus, who is once again human. What a merry band of misfits to go against a god.

Overall, I

A slow, uneven read that finally picked up some steam with the last fifty pages or so.

What investment I'd found in the characters of Carrie, Nathan and Cyrus disappeared with this installment. Max and Bella seemed to be nothing more than add-on characters this time. Sort of an "Oh yeah, they're in the story too, I should write something about them as well." moment for Ms. Armintrout.

The one bright spot in this book was the introduction of Bill and his involvement with the other characters. I fee

I am so glad this book is the final in the series. I only read it because I had to know how it ended. This seires just wasn't the greatest for me. How many times can Cyrus die and come back to life? I feel like I was watching Days of Our Lives.

So. The end of the series.

omg. so much going on......yet the big battle takes 10 mins of reading - if that.

I have to say anti climatic......

it would have been sooooo much better if they could STOP BRINGING PEOPLE BACK TO LIFE!!!! It kinda takes the whole dying thing shock out of the equation.

First Cyrus died. Resurrected as human. Turned vamp by Carrie. Killed. Resurrected. Turned vamp.

Then it was Ziggy turn to come back from the dead. I have to admit that one surprise

Ok, so I read the 4 books in the series because I wanted to know how it ended. I have to admit the books were ok, but not more than that. There was a lot of crude sex and an annoying and dislikable head character and yet I couldn't stop myself from wanting to continue reading. There were some really good, new ideas around vampires I did like. I also got fond of some other characters like Max and Ziggy. So, I'm not saying don't read the books, just saying don't get your hopes up too high. It's ju ...more

I was disappointed with this book. I thought the first book was so interesting that I was ecstatic to find out there was more than just one. (Yes, I thought there was one book for years!)

I absolutely hated this book.

I was very unhappy by how many times she brought people back from the dead. This whole book felt incredibly forced like she was grasping at straws to make the "perfect happy ending". When in reality this is my least favorite of the series. I give this a 1.5 in total.

Excellent final instalment of the "Blood Ties" series. A bit of a schmaltzy-romantic ending but a good read all the same.

A full 5 stars! Out of the darkness of all Souls' Night, comes light
All Soul's Night is the satisfying conclusion to a series that has reinvented itself with every book. Vampires Carrie and Nathan are taking a breather before the final battle to stop the cunning Soul-Eater whose powers grow with each vampire soul he 'drinks, a battle that they are ill equiped to fight. After withholding his love for three books, Nathan is finally ready to love Carrie, but Carrie is now the one holding herself ap

Jennifer Armintrout's Blood Ties is the best contemporary vampire series I've read in recent years. Blood Ties tops out Charlaine Harris' "Sookie Stackhouse" series and also MaryJanice Davidson's "Queen Betsy" series by FAR! Our main protagonist and heroine Carrie has wit and intelligence that the ditzy, annoying and ridiculous females from the aforementioned series above lack considerably.

All Souls Night is the fourth and final book of the Blood Ties series in which Carrie and gang must conquer

Fiendishly Bookish
At long last, Armintrout's edgy and recalcitrant vampire heroine Carrie Ames faces off against the Soul Eater in the final novel of the series.

This time, Carrie has definitely got more than game going for her. Armed with powers culled from Dahlia's blood (and she'll need more), she might finally have what it takes to crush Jacob Seymour once and for all-and she might actually be able to walk away from it alive (read: undead) or somewhere in between (that's a teaser folks)

This is the fourth and final book in the Blood Ties series. Readers who've stuck with the series through each blood soaked page will be either greatly relieved or incredibly disappointed at the happy all wrapped up ending..well except for one major character that I hope is still alive and living a quiet debauched life somewhere safe. Because the books are so connected, it is hard to give a review on this book alone without discussing the entire series. This book begins at about the 6th month mar ...more

Carrie and crew are ready for their final showdown with the Soul Eater. Many people don't escape unharmed and their is carnage and twists aplenty. This story finds a way to wrap up all the loose 'blood' ties and I was completely satisfied with the conclusion. I have wavered with these books and found them to be quite uneven. This book made it worth the entire struggle (sometimes) and joy (sometimes) to get here. Carrie finally gets her head on straight and sees herself and others as they are and ...more

“No one's place in this world is guaranteed. Not everyone is going to get a happy ending. But life isn't about how it ends. It's about the moments between. It's about the small things. The way our loved ones laugh. The sight of a butterfly in the sunlight after a year or two in the darkness. The love and support of an old friend. They might not be with us in body, but they are with us in spirit. The feeling of something we'd thought lost to us forever returned in a single, life-changing moment. Yes, that is simple, even though it might be momentous to us as individuals. Because every day, on this planet, people are born and people die and stranger things happen. But I know my place now, and my purpose. And no matter what trial you have to endure to find that out...
It's worth it.”
