As the dust settles from the destruction of the Bloodstone Heart, a small scroll that had been hidden in the hearth of the altar room for hundreds of years, reveals a prophecy that seems to be about the Larsen family. While the group tries to unravel the riddles of the prophecy they also start to notice they’ve acquired some interesting new powers from the Bloodstone itself, some of which are going to take some getting use to. Darby and Devon head to Ireland to set up house and get ready for their impending nuptials when Darby is asked to help cure the Summer Queen of the Everworld or the delicate balance of power between the Seelie and Unseelie courts will topple throwing the planet into a deadly ice age. While at home, things take a turn for the worse when there’s a tragic airplane crash, the Larsen vampires start dropping like flies, Bernard goes missing, and all the bad deeds dealt seem to point towards one person – the Dark Angel. What’s so important about the altar room? Why are people dying in the name of this prophecy? Will the Larsen’s survive these new tragedies? These questions and other deep seated secrets will be revealed in this final installment of the Blood Series.
There was a lot going on in this book! I enjoyed Deadman’s Blood but it is an active read for sure. There are a lot of different point of views and characters to keep up with. That also means that there were a lot of different story lines going on. I really liked how everything came together in the story but a few times I thought it was a bit too much. It’s strange because the book was a good length and there was a ton going on, but it still felt a bit rushed in parts. Things happened very quickly, and at a few points I just wanted everything to slow down so I could experience the story more fully.
I really like Josh. I think he is my favorite character from the series, so I was pleasantly surprised that this story still had him as one of the main characters. There are a lot of surprises in store for Josh in this book. He took everything that was thrown at him in stride. I will give him that. If it were me I would have freaked out a bit more. (maybe more than a bit)
I won’t give anything away, but I will say that a few of the twists and turns caught me by surprise. That was my favorite part of the book- not knowing exactly what was going to happen or how the story lines would come together. I also really liked how many different elements Deadman’s Blood incorporated. There are witches and vampires and the fey. Something for everyone!
Overall, Deadman’s Blood was a good book. It is really interesting to see how everything fits together and I enjoyed all of the paranormal creatures in the book. I did think that there are a few too many main characters. It was a lot of effort to keep track of all their story lines and where they fit into the overall book. You would really enjoy this series if you like multiple plots going on in one book. Each of the books shift the focus to a few different characters, with all the others still hanging around in subplots. Let me know what you think of this series if you have read it.
