This short story needs to be read after the first book and while is quite short it provides additional and pivotal information that gives insight into the whole Calista / Kristen life and the romance with Julian and Alexander which help understand her character better and why she feels the way she does about both of the men while ensuring that readers can fully understand and enjoy the following books.

You need to read the first book in this series before reading this book. Even though I read the first book, this story made me happy and also broke my heart. I could see how much Calista loved her daughter with Julian. Her daughter was such a refreshing breath of air. I felt bad that Calista still loved Alexander and also her husband Julian. Alex and Julian are looking for Damon as he is killing vampire women and their children. I wish Julian had told Calista more about what was going on before ...more

The Pulse of Blue Blood: The Back Story of Calista
My Blood Runs Blue, Book 2
By: Stacy Eaton
Narrated by: Alex Black

I loved the first book of the series, “My Blood Runs Blue” which should be read and/or listened to before starting this one. This short story is the history of Kristin’s life and her link to Calista. I was rooting for Julian and Kristin in the first book but now I see why she did what she did. I am being as vague as possible because I do

I had never read or listened to anything Stacy Eaton had written before I started this series and now, I am addicted. Yes, this is only book 1.5 but I am already craving book 2. Calista is a character with spunk, with emotion, and with heat that pulled me in as she found her way in life. She made decisions that made me cringe, she did things that made me respect her, and she had a way of making me just want the best for her. I knew how this book would end since I had already listened to the firs ...more

The Pulse of Blue Blood: The Back Story of Calista
My Blood Runs Blue, Book 2
By: Stacy Eaton
Narrated by: Alex Black

After listening to book 1 of this series, I am so glad Stacy Eaton has given us the back story of Calista, Alex and Julian. I love to learn history about couples, and this really lets us understand the choices that were made and the feelings that each one had prior to having Kristen come back. Getting to know these three better cleared up so many questions I had! I also enjoyed gett

If you wanted to know more about Calista, this was your chance. You see what took place in the past and what lead up to the disaster that was the end of Calista's life. You will see each of the three men from the first installment. This is short but I think it lends more insight to the series beginning.

I very much enjoy Stacy Eaton's works. She gives me new details and more to exp

The Pulse of Blue Blood: The Back Story of Calista by Stacy Eaton is the second book in the My Blood Runs Blue series.
It is a short story that goes in more detail about Calista, Julian and Alexander's relationship and how her decisions ultimately lead to her early death.
You definitely don't want to miss this story if you love paranormal romance.
I'm looking forward to reading more books in this series!

I was given an ARC from the author/publisher. All conclusions are mine and mine alone.

This is the second book in the My Blood Runs Blue Series, an emotional paranormal vampire romance. The back story of Calista is a great addition to the Series. You have to listen to the first book before this one. This book gives us more information about Calista, Alexander, and Julian past. I enjoyed it. Alex Black did a great job with the narration. I can't wait to listen to the next book in the Series, Blue Blood for Life. ...more

Calista is married to Julian and they have a gorgeous little girl. Calista feels something is missing in her life with Julian. She loves him deeply, and sparks fly whenever they touch. She hasn't seen Alex since he found her and Julian together. Julian works for Alex now as he is head of the VMF. Someone is killing mothers and daughters. Throats torn out. A vampire. OMG. Another terrific book in this series. ...more

I enjoyed this book (#2), you need to have read the first book in the series or this won't make sense and will spoilt book 1 for you.
The story is the lead up to book 1 and it was great to see the story from a different perspective. It shows Callista's life with Julian and their daughter and how it has affected Alex.

Book two in the series is the perfect story to fill in the blanks. This gives us the first book in an abbrevitaed format as told from Calista's perspective. It gives us the backstory that really helps us to understand the ending of the first book. It is a fast read but totally worth it so that the reader gets the full picture. I love it. Now for more of this world! ...more

This novella was appreciated to answer the questions I had about Calista and her life. It helped explain the meaning of half breeds in the vampire community and her relationship with Alex and Julian.

The narrator, Alex Black voiced Calista well.

This is a prequel to book 1 of the series. It's about Calista and her relationship with Julian and Alexander! Even tho it's about her life before she becomes Kristin, I do not recommend reading it until after you read book 1 of the series! It's a quick but great read! ...more
