Blood Jewel Blog Tour: Review + Giveaway!

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?
    Hoping that the story would take a different turn and happy to say to that it did and I enjoyed it. With the simple writing style as well as the good plot, Georgia Cates was able to take us on this vampire-coloured story wrapped within it a sweet love story and an adventure.

   Written from the point of view of Curry which is something that I ultimately enjoyed and a brief look from Marasla's point of view, Curry Benran's maker ( To see my review of book 1, click HERE ) we get a look at her past which was interesting because she did have a gloomy background. But then we go straight to Curry and Chansey from we left them in book 1 and as there relationship started to grow stronger and unbreakable by the day. Happily married now but as it seems that with vampires comes trouble and some would include the obsessed Marasla and other exciting dilemmas.

   However, at some point the intimacy between Curry and Chansey was just too much, like it took a good chunk of this book but it was still sweet and full of passion. And Chansey has developed a lot and I liked her in this book much more. Also, Curry he was just this sweet laid back gentleman and together they make a really cute couple.

   For the most part though, this book was happy and I liked the intensity in it, it wasn't expected, like every moment I was expecting it to turn bad but it never did, about to but never and I didn't say I didn't like that, in the matter fact I did, it became rare to see a peaceful story, they all tend to end bad so who doesn't love happy stories and happy/cliffhanger endings. Also, I must say that I love the cover art of this one ;)

   Overall, I can say that I liked Blood Jewel much more than Blood of Anteros in reference to the story itself. And also as a sequel, a good one, the characters developed more as well as the world in which the story takes place which I really like the world setting and as a result, I'm looking forward to reading the next book. I do recommend this for all the fantasy/vampires lovers out there, I'm sure you're gonna enjoy it!
