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

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

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

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.

Opinião aqui:

Quem me acompanha aqui mais atentamente ou no meu canal sabe que uma das séries que mais me surpreendeu nos últimos tempos foi a série “Laços de Sangue” da autora Jenifer Armintrout. É uma série de vampiros e, eu de vampiros apenas tinha lido a série Crepúsculo. Na altura tinha gostado mas, desde essa aí nunca mais tinha pegado numa história de vampiros. Quando peguei no primeiro livro da série “A Iniciação”, fiquei viciada e percebi que esta

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.

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?

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

Secondo capitolo della saga Blood Ties.
Ritroviamo Carrie e Nathan a distanza di poche settimane da ciò che successe al termine del primo capitolo.
La storia si apre con un nuovo ostacolo. Nathan infatti è posseduto. O meglio, è questo ciò che appare inizialmente.
Abbiamo la possibilità di visitare la sede del Movimento che si trova a Madrid e vedere come da quel momento tutto cambia nel libro.
Nathan è in pericolo, e il Divoratore di Anime è di nuovo in agguato per compiere un suo poano diaboli

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.

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
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.

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.
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.

“Innamorata di un vampiro” è il secondo libro della saga di Jennifer Armintrout, dedicata ai signori della notte. Titolo originale “Possession” e vi posso assicurare che questo rende molto meglio l’idea. Mi è totalmente oscuro il modo in cui le case editrici italiane scelgano i titoli per la pubblicazione nel nostro paese.

Nel primo libro della serie “Il bacio del vampiro”, abbiamo conosciuto gli esseri immaginati dalla Armintrout come sanguigni e capaci

1 - one that is brand new to you that you've never read before, whether the outcome be that you love it or hate it.

2 - the favourites. the ones you can read over and over again and never tire of. you know the story inside out and it's like a comfy blanket.

Every character is so heartbreaking alone. My heart literally ached as I read this book. As usual, Armentrout brings every character to life..everyone can identify with a love lost.

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

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..

Okay, so as I am rereading all the books I enjoyed as a teen, I'm started to find my taste in books has changed a bit. I remember the first time I read this book, I loved it. You couldn't get me away from vampire books, and, hello, added erotica. However, I think that was the perk to me at the time. Vampires are always going to be cool, that's just a fact, but I was biased to love these books so much more than I typically would due to my "hormone goggles."

At this point, I think it's safe to say
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
