Goodreads Blurb: One hundred ninety-eight seasons after the mushroom-shaped clouds first blossom to poison the humans of the Rising Sun, near the beginning of the Season of Inundation, Atlantis will return.
With those words ringing in their ears, vampires Christine Javert and Jordan MacNaught find themselves in a race against time to stop the return of Atlantis. As they hunt for the deadly Ares, they discover his plots to incite a world-wide species war are in fact diversion from his far more sinister plans for the humans.
My Review: Once again Tory takes me by surprise in the direction she takes with the series. It was a great continuation (my favorite so far) and has even more magic, deception, action, suspense and romance than before. Any paranormal romance reader will definitely enjoy Prophecy of Blood!
Chris is still the beautiful, intelligent and strong woman we were introduced to earlier in the series. She learns many new things about herself, where she truly comes from, her powers and more about others that she’s unsure she even wants to know. One thing she DOES know for sure is… she’s falling hard for Jordan. So much to worry about with all that’s happening around her, she now has the fear that is her friends find out about how she feels, she’ll no longer have them :(
Jordan seems almost like a new man. He’s still a bit of a loon, a hardcore bad ass and sexually attracted to one he should be repulsed by, or should he. He fights many battles with both himself and others around him trying to bring harm to many. He should not care, yet he does and will stop at nothing to keep them all safe, especially Chris.
I LOVED seeing another side to both Jordan and Chris. An actual softer side (well as soft as you can get with these two), I never thought I’d actually grow to like Jordan. But I do! For those of you wondering if it can be read as a stand-alone read, the answer is yes. But I strongly suggest you reading the entire series in order so you can truly understand the whys and the how’s of the story. You may not truly appreciate what goes on (especially between Chris and Jordan) otherwise :)
