Summary (taken from Goodreads):
Not your typical vampire story: this book is an unforgettable paranormal adventure just waiting to reveal itself without restraint! Starting off at a slower, fairytale pace, the story shifts, killing the sweetness without looking back, and jettisons the reader into a world of chaos and calm, loyalty and adversity, redemption and long lost love.
Blood Life is a vampire/witch thriller full of blood, magic, love, violence, and sex. It is no Twilight or Vampire Diaries! It's much darker and sexier, but equally as engrossing and unique. The witches and vampires of the fictional world of the Spectrum have united and created a race of half-breeds called the Combined. These are very powerful entities, but their race has been threatened by a rogue vampire with very old, powerful blood named Lokee, the son of the Great Witch, Devendra. This story is about letting Fate play out, but in all its turmoil, trying to save one woman who will be the key to saving the witches, the vampires, AND the Combined. Of course, the villain is very much against all that, and tortures her time and again to try to destroy her.
Can the Combined's strongest vampire adversary form an army to defeat them, or will the power of three keep the race on top? Centered around the lives of four integral characters, Blood Life is an adventure series unlike any in the genre. Meet Devendra, a powerful witch descended from one of the first lineages; Lokee, her son and worst enemy; Roman, her friend and companion; and Alethea, the key to it all...
I admit it was a bit confusing at the beginning, and at some point throughout the book, but I really loved it!
Let's start with the fact that these here are true vampires, the old-school ones. The ones you were supposed to run from, not fall in love with. That was how it's supposed to be.
It's set in ancient times, when a look was all it took to fall in love and Magic was feared, and I love a bit of history in a book :) I also loved how Roman, deep down, wants them both, Devendra and Alethea. There's history with both, and you'll get to see and understand that in the book.
Devendra is a very important character in the story, and reading how Blood life ended, I just can't wait to read more about her!
