Blog Tour: Review & Giveaway: Blood Eternal by Marie Treanor

Blood Eternal is the third installment in the Awakened By Blood series by Marie Treanor and a Paranormal Romance from Signet Eclipse.

Book Blurb:

Everything comes to light someday...

Elizabeth Silk is struggling to reconcile her passion for the vampire overlord Saloman and her allegiance to the vampire hunters.  When a shocking vampire revolt calls Saloman away from her, she refuses to follow him.

To make matters worse, Saloman’s beloved cousin Luk has been found and awakened by one of his greatest enemies.  Frenzied with bloodlust, Luk embarks on a killing spree and prepares to expose Saloman’s biggest vulnerability: Elizabeth.

But under Saloman’s regime, vampires have become less concerned with secrecy, no longer willing to hide their power.  Rumors are swirling about attacks on humans.  After Saloman joins forces with the vampire hunters to consolidate his power, Elizabeth begins to understand her role in the inevitable collision of the two worlds.  She could bring resolution between vampires and humans - if she can manage to stay alive long enough to play both sides...

My thoughts:

Elizabeth Silk is a descendant of Tsigana, who hundreds of years ago helped stake the vampire Saloman.  The fact that Saloman loved Tsigana - and now feels much the same for Elizabeth - is a bit ironic. 

Elizabeth has joined the vampire hunters because she feels that it is her duty to help hunt down and eliminate the rogue vampires that see humans as prey.

This has caused her to have conflicting feelings - because she is in love with Saloman - and he is the oldest living vampire in the world.

Now Saloman’s cousin Luk has been awakened and he is not a happy camper.  When alive, Luk was jealous of Saloman - and his years of ‘sleep’ have not changed those feelings.

The vampire hunters have unearthed a prophecy that originated with Luk - and they think that the  prophecy is talking about Elizabeth.  If they’ve interpreted correctly - Elizabeth may die or be turned vampire.
When the battle between vampire and hunters takes place - they all witness the fulfillment of that prophecy.

And Elizabeth is forever changed.

Blood Eternal is my favorite book in this series so far.  

I give Blood Eternal 4 out of 5 stars.
