Book Review: The Blood That Bonds by Christopher Buecheler

The Blood That BondsThe Blood That Bonds by Christopher Buecheler

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

When I checked this one out, I did so mostly because it had a cool looking cover and I was into reading some horror type works. I didnt know going in what sort of tale I was getting into. Once I realized it was a vampire story, I was a bit worried, as they are not usually my kind of thing.

But I have to say that I really and thoroughly enjoyed this book. The characters, especially the MC, Two were vibrant and the writing active and engaging. I even feel in love with the male leead and otehr prominent characters in this one.

The beginning of the book really drew me in and got my sympathy for Two going right off the bat. Heroin addict and prostitute in a bad situation — easy to root for an underdog like that.

As the story progresses, we get a more detailed look at the vampire family that Two has been brought into — Her Master (maker) Thereon is easy to fall for, as are the other siblings in the clan.

There were parts of this one that actually made me cry (so not going to spoil anything) and I haven’t read a book that could do that in a long time.

Will definitely be checking out the next in this series. I believe it is called Blood Hunt.

I highly recommend this one if you enjoy vamp tales. However, I would say this is NOTHING like the Twighlight vamps — so if that is what you are looking for — th is may not be the book for you.

  1. Ooooh, so this is a recommend? How dark is it, rebecca? Dark-dark, or broody-dark, or gloomy-dark, or eerie-dark, or … okay, I'm gonna stop. 🙂

  2. It is like Interview with a Vampire dark — Defintely darker than say — the Marked vampire series I have started reading.

    It has a nice dark sort of eroticism to it. And with the feeding tied to sex in many of the cases, it also had a nice titilation factor.

    I would recommend for sure.

  3. Cool. I'll keep it in mind when I'm looking for something. 🙂
