Blood Unleashed (Blood Stone)

 

Blood Unleashed. Book 3 of the Blood Stone series. Tracy Cooper-Posey
Review from Jeannie Zelos Book reviews.
I’ve read several of Tracy’s novels now, and they share a common theme of paranormal and m/m/f ménage. Its done in a sensual, seductive way though, and not the tacky, cringing, stomach churning ways too many authors write scenes like these. It takes a special talent to gradually get the reader so involved with the characters that they feel real, and when things go wrong you want to cry for them, hoping for something to go right. Tracy’s people too usually start out with some kind of dislike or suspicion of the one they’ll eventually partner with. Its clever stuff how she makes all that so believable.
Anyway, that’s general substance I’ve found from her books that I’ve read overall but this one – and this series – is pretty complex. Thankfully there’s a compendium of who’s who and how they fit in the story, which is useful because by now there’s a pretty complex cast, and I did need to refer back a time or two. The plot began fairly simply in book one, expanded in book two and by now has become deeply solid, with the romances and side plots all slowly solidifying into the main story. I really enjoyed the way its all come together, and in fact as I’ve learned more its made the earlier books clearer. Now I’ve all three and know the story, at some point I’ll re read them all. I like to do that with series, reading back to back while each still fresh in my mind brings out another side to them, and I really enjoy that. Complex novels like this also have so much that could be missed on first reading, when you’re still coming to grips with the story that’s unfolding, and second readings bring out those sections.
As always a cracking story, with all the scenes from earlier novels coming into play alongside the romance between Marcus, Illaria and Rick. That’s some hot and steamy sections, and they work well with each person bringing out facets of the other two that’s needed. Its a kind of trust thing too – they all have the skills needed to prevent the disaster threatened, but they need to learn to trust and work together, and the romances have engendered that.
Each of these novels is quite long, some solid reading in them, this one is a huge 436 pages for £3.14, so a real bargain. Though the romance part could be read as a standalone I wouldn’t recommend it, the overall plot spans all three novels and they are best read in order.
Stars: five – definitely a keeper series. .

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on amazon.co.uk for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
