Five years after the Second Civil War ends, humans and otherborn – humanlike creatures with superhuman DNA – still struggle for peace. To ensure the continued rights of both, the FBI forms a Para-Ops team with a unique set of skills.
Leader of an Otherborn clan, half-breed vampire Knox Devereaux would do anything to find a cure for the anti-vamp vaccine slowly starving his people into extinction. When the FBI contacts him about leading a team of hand-selected Others on a mission to reclaim the stolen antidote, Knox accepts. His new assignment places him in direct contact with Special Agent Felicia Locke, the beautiful human he’s craved since their very first meeting.
As most of you know I am more of the historical/contemporary fan and Heather tends to stick to the paranormal/contemporary side. Although occasionally we just need a change and will cross into each other’s genres, this happened to be one of those time.
It is not often that I pick up a paranormal book but is seems that when I have I quickly get wrapped up in it, to the point that I can’t put it down – forget sleep or homework, shhh don’t tell my teachers. I even went so far last year that my top two favorite books happened to be new paranormal series. Well, I have found one for this year also. Chosen By Blood is one you have to run out and get! If you like books that include: Vampires, Wraiths, Weres, Psychics, or Others of any form. Than you will want to read this as it has just about everything in it.
The book is about a Para-Ops team who is put together to help the FBI locate a vampire antidote. The Vampires are withering away since a vaccine was created tainting human blood so it has no effect on them. Come to find out the vampires are not the only ones who are affected by this vaccine and the testing being done to find an antidote.
This is mainly Knox and Felicia’s story, and let me just say HOT! Knox knows his duty, which is to marry another vampire in order to procreate, this does not mean though that he cannot have a relationship with Felicia. Vampires don’t worry about things like that. Felicia on the other hand has a very different set of values and is not one who wants to share, full commitment or nothing at all. For years she is able to stay away, than they begin working on the Para-Ops team together. And the struggle starts. Will they be able to come to some sort of compromise or will they have to choose between duty and desire? Not only that but they will encounter surprises and betrayals along the way.
Chosen by Blood is so well written and the characters just pull you in to their struggles and triumphs, oh and you can’t forget the fact that it is STEAMY but really what would you expect with a gorgeous vampire.
You will close this book wanting more, and thankfully book 2 Chosen by Fate will be out this Fall, so we won’t have to wait long.
Because I LOVED this book so much I just have to share it.
What is it about a book that makes you want to read it? Are you a grab from the shelf and hope for the best or do you research first and shop with a list of wants?
