Early Review: A Fire in the Blood by Amanda Ashley

Apr 8, 2017

I see a man. He is old. Very old. He will come into your life in a moment of danger. He will watch over you and protect you. The gypsy s hand gripped Tessa s tighter. He will bring you death, she whispered, her voice like the rustle of dry leaves. And life. 

Ten years later, when Andrei Dinescu saves Tessa from a vicious attacker, she has no idea that the handsome stranger the gypsy fortune teller predicted is not a hunter but a seven-hundred-year-old vampire. Darkly powerful, unbelievably compelling, he is obviously pursuing Tessa, but is it her love he's after or her blood? 



A Fire in the Blood wasn't all that I had hoped for. I thought the beginning was wonderful. I was prepared for a fantastic journey, but this story never delivered.   Andrei is not the alpha vampire I was hoping for.  He never seemed to fit the bill.  Although well written,  I didn't feel the fire and the story fell flat for me.  I have read other Amanda Ashley stories and truly enjoyed them. One of my favorites is Night's Master the third book in the Children of the Night series.
