Publisher's Summary

Before there was a modern-day town called Dark Moon Vale, there was an ancient kingdom nestled in the Transylvanian Alps. Before there was a primordial species called the Vampyr, there was a celestial race begotten of gods and men. Before light battled shadow, the sacrifice became mandatory, or the first Blood Moon adorned the celestial sky...
There was The Curse.
A punishment.
An abomination.
The ultimate act of vengeance.
And it was placed upon a people so corrupted by their thirst for blood and dominion that they awakened the souls of the slain and became the souls of the damned.
Young, beautiful, and in the prime of her life, Jessenia Groza is not ready to die. Yet she has been condemned by Prince Jaegar's men, slated as a sacrifice to the gods.
Timaos Silivasi would gladly risk everything - his power, his privilege, his celestial heart - to save his one true love, but fate has a plan of its own...
For this couple.
For this civilization.
For this lost race of warriors, who will never be the same.
Every legend has a beginning.

Some have talent - others have a GIFT!

Okay, so there is no doubt that this is a dark and tragic and triumphant story all in one, and it’s amazing how Tessa Dawn wove it together. The thing about her Blood Curse Series that is so unique and compelling is that she managed to completely reinvent the history and mythology of vampires while someone staying true to some of the popular folklore and history at the same time. There is simply nothing out there on the market comparable – these are not just another dime-a-dozen vampire story. For me, Blood Genesis simply underscored the brilliance of Tessa’s world building and imagination. This is where it all begins, and for those who might be worried that it’s a sad, tragic series…don’t! This was the foundation for all the later books, the story behind the Curse. What her vampires do going forward is as amazing and descriptive as her writing. Well done! Fantastic job, as always, by the narrator, Eric Dove. He really brings some extra spice that you just wouldn't get reading it in your head!

Oh you and Eric....tease us !

Short but Sweet.

This series is so freak- in …Good !!!!

I could talk about the characters “All Day Long”…LOL I don’t want to rob anyone the joy of experiencing it especially since it is short….so I'm going to take the advice of that biker guy that screams out…” Damn it Donny…..don’t ad-lib”. I normally hate prequels especially since they are usually too short to waste my credit on and always seem to be read by narrators that aren’t good or doesn’t seem comfortable in the story rolls. Eric Dove is reading so we already know that is not going to be the problem here.

It is a good story. It does give a little more information on the beginning of the blood curse and shines a little light on the connection between Napoleon and the Silivasi’s. I did wish it was a little longer because it leaves you wondering and now I have questions on more points than the story tells us about. It was however a really good burp, and didn’t leave me disappointed I spent my whole big credit on it. It is a good prequel.
I guess that is the trait of really good writing/narrating ….It makes you want more…thus…my addiction to the Blood Curse series, which is rivaled only by my addiction to the Blackdagger Brotherhood series.

I will be sitting here….with my celestial credits waiting for the next book in this series to come out.
