Book Review: Blood Lust by Jessica Gibson

Hello all!

Today I am reviewing a paranormal fiction book by Jessica Gibson. More about the author:


Jessica lives in California with her husband and young son. She loves to read, and that love helped her to branch out into writing. Aside from writing, she runs an online event planning business called the Release Day Diva. In addition to novels, Jessica writes and maintains the blog Book on the Bright Side.

Short description of the book


Ronan has lived for hundreds of years. In all of his years there has only been one for him. What will he risk to get back what is his by right?.

This is a short story and is the prequel to Love and Blood, book 1 in the Blood Ties series due out in January 2013.

My Review

The book is aptly named. This short prequel to Jessica’s book named Love and Blood, introduces us to Ronan, who is a vampire with an insatiable lust for blood and is about 560 years old. He is constantly on the watch out for his child, or rather a woman whom he turned into a vampire, and is in immense love with. But she ran away from her maker, wanting to be more human than a vampire.

This prequel is only 16 pages. Throughout the pages, it has the most gory details about how Ronan feeds on his preys. I did like the way Jessica gives so much details into these. However, as I am not a fan of gore, I rate this book 2/5 which by Goodreads standards mean ‘it’s OK’.

I do have to mention that if you are indeed a fan of gore, blood and vampires, this would definitely be a 4/5 for you. Towards the end of the prequel, she ends it in such a way that you are left wanting more. She ended it in a good and intriguing way, such that even I, did wish I got a bit more, so imagine what gore lovers would feel!
