Descent of Blood - Elizabeth Marx

Goodreads Synopsis

When times are darkest, some vampires desire more than blood …

England, 1465. Mortal men clash in the War of the Roses for the English crown, while vampire warriors’ move undetected among their ranks, savoring the flow of blood that battlefields provide.

Vampire prince, Severian Pearce, fears the revelation of the immortal clans to humankind should King Henry fall from power. While in pursuit of Henry’s enemies, Severian comes to the aid of Meridian Neville, a human woman he craves—and not for the scent of her blood … Meridian is torn between honoring her father’s dying wish and her unexplainable yearning for Lord Severian. But as Severian and Meridian work together to protect a relic hunted by mortals and immortals alike, the red veil descends over them. This all-consuming attraction can drive immortals to the brink of madness. Will the existence of this powerful bond between a human and a vampire be enough to unite the immortal clans or is the red veil a scourge set on destroying any chance they might have of happiness?

When all hope is lost, one vampire will fight unto death for his forbidden love.

First thoughts after.......
Wow if this was the prequel I can't wait for the main books!

How distracted did I get???
The tale of love and hate woven by Elizabeth Marx is one that you won't want to put down.  Just when you think you have the whole mystery solved Ms. Marx throws in another twist!    With some difficult to read moments the love tends to triumph.  Will it triumph over all?  The boys got chicken biscuits for dinner last night........however hubs did dishes........

I give Descent of Blood............
5 BASKETS!!!!!!
Make sure you grab a copy!


  1. Tobi,
    Thanks so much for reading and reviewing DESCENT OF BLOOD. I'm so happy you liked it. Sorry the kids had to go with chicken biscuits though, although, if they're anything like my kids they probably loved them! HA!
    Happy reading and reviewing to all,
    Elizabeth Marx

    1. yes they are happy when I get too distracted too cook up a "real" meal! LOL Thanks for stopping by!!!

  2. This looks good, but it worries me that it is set in 1465. I have trouble with anything set before the 1700s.
