Deep in the heart of Louisiana resides the Evergreen Plantation and on it lives a most heinous malevolence. Voodoo Priestess, Madame Lilly is beckoned to the slave quarters to perform an exorcism on a young girl. It’s been ages since this type of ceremony has been performed and it’s one that should never be practiced again.
Lilly must face horrendous peril in order to survive the path she journeys. She quickly finds out that she is far from the most powerful and that there is a much greater force at play, one that will do anything to rid Madame Lilly.
I’ve followed Madam Lilly’s story from the very beginning. The journey has been fantastic and the unraveling gut-wrenching at times. Along the way, I’ve formed a love-fear time of friendship with Lilly. She has grown into a powerful priestess, and I feel as though she needs protecting from herself. For one wielding such immense powers, who am I to feel sorry or want to protect her?
Dormaine G knows how to spin horror. This series is unique and a must read for horror fanatics with a hunger for drama in with a well-written series.
Victor pushed back the curls that fell across her face.Then his hands read her figure as if braille. Octavia held her palms up at her sides and braced herself for the wrath that came in the form of this man.
“You are mine to take,” He nuzzled against her ear. She uttered no words of disavowal as he spoke seductively, for he was indeed serious. “If you are my damnation then I say let both heaven and hell come for us for I will never let you go, Octavia. Not even in death.” He kissed her with all the held back emotions imposed upon him when he was not able to touch her.
Victor, once a faithful vampire, must flee America in order to protect his love Octavia, a woman that should have never been. They are being relentlessly hunted by the elite members of the Cabalistis under the direct order of their eldest vampire, Ciprian. Through their world-wind travels, Victor must protect Octavia, even though neither has a clue of what she truly is. Yet in shielding her, Victor’s past resurfaces and with it comes the tainted mindset that gave him the long forgotten title of Barbarian.
“I swear to you that I will never let anyone harm you, Victor. I will die for you,” Octavia promised and with those words. Victor fell to his knees, placed his face on her stomach and held tightly to his soul.
Though Victor will do anything to keep Octavia safe, can he truly trust her? Will Octavia’s creator force her into betraying Victor? Above all, will Victor’s past come back to haunt him?
Blood Thirst 2 picked up as 1 left off – which I loved! The author didn’t hesitate or hold back on giving readers what they so desire: passion and gore. I love Victor & Octavia’s twisted relationship, as well as their fight to belong to one another even in the face of opposition. Moreover, the flash into Victor’s past allowed me to better understand.
Great follow up & ending! I’m ready for another series by this talented author.
