Publisher's Summary

Some souls are forged in fire. Some hearts are packed in ice. Some elements were never meant to be combined....
Blood Redemption, a journey of elemental darkness and primordial light:
Saber Alexiares is no ordinary vampire. He is like a cruel, fire-breathing dragon. Reared in the bowels of the colony by Dark Ones, he has no conscience, no compassion, and no saving grace. Captured by the enemy, he is sentenced to execution by sunlight only to discover that his body will not burn - he isn't who he thought he was. He was stolen at birth. He was reared by the wrong house. And the sunlight isn't going to kill him because he does have a soul.
Vanya Demir is the very heart of goodness and light, an ancient female from a magical race, the progeny of humans and celestial deities before they were cursed by the blood. With her deep-rooted sense of duty, naive upbringing, and tragic personal history, she has unknowingly packed her heart in ice and dedicated her life to the service of the Vampyr. She is wholly unprepared to face a fire-breathing dragon.
When their paths converge beneath a Serpens Blood Moon, they will each have 30 days to reconcile the irreconcilable, to confront the primordial darkness that threatens to destroy them both. Can a being lost in darkness for 800 years ever find its way to the light? Can a heart that's been buried for as long as it can remember risk the ultimate in betrayal and damnation simply for the hope of blood redemption?

One of the best books I have ever read!!!

If you could sum up Blood Redemption in three words, what would they be?

Holy Hell Twister

Who was your favorite character and why?

Saber, he had so much against him, yet he trys.

What does Eric G. Dove bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He brings everything and everyone to life!

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Cried for Saber and his parents.

Any additional comments?

Saber Alexiares is from the house of Jaegar- Dark Ones. Cursed to only walk at night , drink blood and kill, bearing children with the woman dying a most horrendous death. Caught by the house of Jadon and sentenced to die by Sunlight. But he does not die. He is the missing infant 800 years prior. Stolen by Damien and raised with no conscious. Child to Rafael and Lorna Dzuna house of Jadon. Can he overcome 800 years of living as Dark One? Let go of his anger? Nothing worth having is easy, as all are about to have to come to terms with.

Vanya Demir is one of The Originals. One of two who saw what had transpired to cause the curse.
She is Pure of Light. Working in Romania on the old magic , she decides to visit her sister and her nephew. Once there, the Sky revealed Serpens Blood Moon and that she is Saber's Destiny. They have 30 days to convert Vanya and for her to bear him twins or he dies a most horrendous death. But no one not even Vanya wants to get close to the monster in the cell who would kill her with no remorse.
Can her pure white light reach him before it is to late or will Saber come to terms with his origins, being from the house of Jadon.

If you are looking for a light book to read this book is not for you. If you are looking for a book with Grit and Depth than this book is for you!
You know you are reading a book written by a Great Author when your emotions are all over the place.
When you have to put the book down just to get your emotions in check. When you have to put a book down just to get your breathing back to normal.
These Vampyr's are not your run of the mill, there is no other Vampyr book(s) out there that even come close to this book.

At first I really disliked Saber and felt sorry for Vanya. Than I felt sorry for Saber and all that he could have been if he had not been kidnapped. Than I really disliked Saber again. Back and forth I wrestled with my emotions. Very intense writing by Tessa Dawn pulled me into the story and never let me go.
There were some great sayings in this book, some that make you cry and some that you just laugh out loud and your family thinks you are losing it.
*** Spoiler Alert ***
1 - Don't you have a pole to dance around"?
2-"Been there done that tossed the tee-shirt"!
3-"Damn...need attention much?"
4-Buy some Clairol for that hair"!
5-When Saber says, "Be well...mother."
6-When Nachari says, "This is our house..."
7-When Rafael calls Saber on his anger, and he (Saber) asks him why they never searched for him...
The Bar scene is flat out falling off your chair laughing so hard!
This is not a HEA, I mean really 800 years of depravity does not change in 2-3 mnths. The ending is very touching and powerful and I am sure we will see more of these 2 as Saber becomes more humane, with the help of Vanya and their Son and the rest of the house of Jadon.
I give this book 5 Stars, but really one can not count all the stars in the Night Sky, that would be the real amount of Stars I would give this Book.

Of all the Blood Curse Series books I think this one might just be the most heart wrenching and powerful. This is not your typical redemption story where someone goes from bad to good overnight or even from bad to good all the way. This character has to fight and claw his way back to his soul, and Tessa brings every moment of that to vivid life. Absolutely amazing! Best in the series so far.

Eric Dove really brought the characters and the story to life! I can't imagine a better narrator for these stories.
