Amanda, graduate student and devoted follower of the Greek god Apollo, is intrigued when she meets Jesse, a handsome young scholar who shares her love of both the classics and the occult. He quickly sparks her interest—and ignites a dark flame of passion between them. Together, they embark on a shadowy path that leads Amanda straight into Jesse’s scintillating underworld of vampires, magick, and secret societies.

Little does Amanda know she is about to fulfil a legacy that began over thirty years ago and ended in tragedy. Can she learn the truth about her identity in time to help those whom she has grown to care about and find happiness in her new life with Jesse?

Blood of the Dark Moon combines the classic eroticism of vampires with a touch of modern sensual romance and occult intrigue.

My Review:

Blood of the Dark Moon by Adrianne Brennan is a steamy tale of vampires, magic and the occult. Amanda has invested all of her time and energy into being a devoted follower of Apollo and her college graduate studies. So when Jesse walks into her life and is not only interested in her studies but her religion as well, Amanda feels like a relationship may actually work between them. Just when Amanda is starting to realize that Jesse isn’t an ordinary guy, she finds herself being turned into a Vampire. If that wasn’t complicated enough, she is also Blood Bonded with Jesse which will connect them forever. All is not what it appears when the discovery is made that Amanda is harboring memories that contain knowledge and emotions that do not belong to her.

Blood of the Dark Moon started off a little bumpy in spots but Ms. Brennan quickly found her rhythm and it only got better from there. There is a raw emotion between Amanda and Jesse where one moment they are in the throes of passion and ecstasy and the next they want to rip each others throats out due to frustration.

Another wonderful thing I enjoyed about Blood of the Dark Moon is that the characters were free to follow the religious path of their choice, often depicting ancient religions that follow Greek or Egyptian Gods, without judgment.

The fact that the Vampires use magic was an added bonus as well. It’s not everyday you get to read about Vampires using different methods of Divination to make decisions within their Clan.

Blood of the Dark Moon is an adult erotica novel that contains some bondage elements and should only be read by mature adult audiences.

My Rating:

Happy Reading,
