Publisher's Summary

My father always said fear was a weakness. Well, that's easy to say when you don't have to worry about vampire slayers or holy water. I hate fear, but undead life goes on. In the two months since I was attacked in the hospital morgue and turned into a vampire, I've killed my evil sire, Cyrus, fallen in love with my new sire, Nathan, and have even gotten used to drinking blood. Just when things are finally returning to normal (as normal as they can be when sunlight can kill you) Nathan becomes possessed. And then he slaughters an innocent human. Now it's my job to find Nathan before the Voluntary Vampire Extinction Movement does, because they're just waiting for an excuse to terminate him and anyone foolish enough to help him. But it gets worse. It turns out that Nathan's been possessed by one of the most powerful and wicked vampires alive: the Soul Eater. And who knows what vile plan he's concocted?
With the Soul Eater and my possessed sire on the loose, I have a lot to fear. Including being killed. Again.

Blood Ties Book Two: Possession

Second in Jennifer Armintrout’s contemporary vampire series, Possession, was read by Elena Stauffer. First, Elena did a good job. She has a pleasant tone, natural inflection and good pacing. She made the book enjoyable to listen to.

A blend of perspectives, Carrie, Max and Cyrus; I most enjoyed Cyrus, once vicious, uber-evil, much feared vampire, now resurrected mortal, as he regained his humanity. I felt his confusion, his fluctuating between monster and remourseful man was well done. One would assume he’d be conflicted.

Max, Nathan’s closest friend, was fun, and rather sexy in a thwarted bad boy kind of way. His mission, find Nathan, before the gorgeous female werewolf assassin did. His problem, beyond Nathan’s situation, was that the assassin wasn’t falling for any of his attempts at distraction, and to make matters worse, he wasn’t able to seduce or joke his way into her good graces. Poor Max.

As for Carrie’s part. Yes, she was the protagonist, but I found some of her adventure was a little pointless, especially in the face of Cyrus’ inner turmoil and Max’s sexual/humorous misadventures. I would have liked to have seen her encounter more resistance, or something... I did appreciate her ongoing love/hate feelings toward Cyrus and Nathan though. Anyone would find her situation gave them mixed signals.

To summarize. One could read this as a stand alone I suppose, although, having enjoyed Blood Ties - Book One: The Turning so much I would suggest they be read in order.

I also intend to pick up Book Three: Ashes to Ashes when it's released. I hope you try and enjoy this series as well.

Friends dont let friends...

well, as in the first book, it gets a bit silly and the high pitched mickey mouse voices of the enemies make it hard to take them seriously. I dont have the heart, ears or wallet to read book 3. You read it and tell me the painful events I missed.
