Blood Jewel Blog Tour: review

This is our second stop on the Blood Jewel Blog Tour presented by These Paper Worlds Book Blog Tours. We post our review for the second book in The Vampire Agape series, Blood Jewel, by Georgia Cates. Welcome.

Blood Jewel (The Vampire Agape, Book 2)
by Georgia Cates
Genre: YA paranormal romance
Format: ebook

Blurb: With the mystery of Chansey Leclaire and Curry Brennan’s connection solved, they are free to explore their newfound love for one another. Or so they thought...

When Marsala uses a witch and black magic to discover Curry’s whereabouts, he and Chansey are left with no choice. The newly engaged couple is forced to relocate away from their families at the new compound in Savannah, which causes some major changes in the plans for their upcoming wedding.

Relocating to Savannah might have saved Curry and Chansey from being discovered by Marsala, but it doesn’t stop her attempts to reach Curry or her efforts to harm Chansey through the use of black magic. As Marsala closes in, Curry faces the decision he never wanted to make. Will he keep Chansey human or condemn her to eternity as the thing he hates most?

As Curry waits for his hand to be forced, a newly turned vampire arrives at the Savannah compound in need of help. Not only is she a fledgeling in transition, she brings reports of escaping from a vampire cult still in possession of her sister, a human. Any attempt to save the captive human from a cult of vampires puts everyone in jeopardy. Can they risk entering a large cult to save one human being? And is so, how could they possibly do it successfully?

Love will grow. New mysteries will arise. A battle will ensue. A Blood Jewel will be found.

Meet Georgia Cates - I am a wife, mother of two daughters and a labor and delivery nurse. I have recently added Paranormal Romance Writer to my list of things to keep be busy, but I am ecstatic to release my debut novel, Blood of Anteros, the first book inThe Vampire Agápe Series.

Like others that enjoy a great story of paranormal romance, I am easily bored by the tale of an obtainable, ordinary romance and was inspired to create The Vampire Agápe Series. When I am not tied up with my family or delivering babies, I am working feverishly on the second book in The Vampire Agápe Series.

Review: Curry and Chansey return in the second Vampire Agape book, Blood Jewel. I can't help but like this couple and hope they can find their happily ever after sometime. They're unabashedly romantic and this time, their love and attraction intensifies as they plan their wedding. Some of my questions form the first book were indeed answered, while others, I suspect, won't be fully addressed until the third book, Blood Doll. It was nice to see the vampire coven headed by Solomon and its members take a more active role in the story. From their history to learning more about vampire transformations, this installment show more of the vampires and their interesting world. From the opening which focused on Marsala, I expected to finally see the Queen of Vampire Mean take center stage but she didn't, which was a little unsettling. Slow moving in parts and needing some more conflict, I do enjoy the author's creative way of making her vampires unique.

Happy news for the newlyweds, the threat of Marsala on the horizon, and the question of what exactly is a blood jewel are just some of the things I expect to see more of in the next book, Blood Doll, next year when it is published.

Rating: 3.5 Enjoy this romantic couple
