Book Review: Blood Betrayed (Sons of Navarus #2) by Gabrielle Bisset
|5 stars, 1 review|
Gabrielle Bissetabout this book: The second book in my Sons of Navarus series, Blood Betrayed is the story of Saint and Solenne and a story of second chances. Saint, who's real name is Declan, has lived outside of the vampire world as much as possible for nearly one hundred years. Believing the only woman he'd ever loved had betrayed him, he closed himself off to vampires and lived in the human world, preferring to be with human females only (which is why vampires who don't approve of his choice call him Saint). Now with the Archon takeover, he's been called back to be a Son of Navarus and forced to spend time with the one soul in this world he so desperately wants to avoid.
For readers who read Blood Avenged, the first book in the Sons of Navarus series, Saint is quite different from Vasilije, the hero of Blood Avenged. Saint is dark and brooding, preferring to be alone as much as possible. Vasilije is a hedonist, but Saint is very much the opposite kind of male. He works out every night (he's a vampire, so it's got to be at night) and is quite serious about life in general. He's never forgotten losing the one woman he cared for, and it colors everything he does.
I knew when I began writing Blood Betrayed that I wanted Saint to have to face his past demons, so he's forced to hide out in France with the woman he wants to forget, Solenne, who's offered to help keep him safe from the death warrant issued by the Archons for him. Solenne has never stopped loving him, but the male she meets now is hardened and darker than the one she had to leave so long ago. For them to find love again, both will have to accept what happened and move on, but that's easier said than done.
When I began the Sons of Navarus series, I knew each hero would be different, so in some ways there's one for every romance reader's taste. For readers who prefer their vampire heroes sensual and pleasure-seeking, there's Vasilije. But for those who like their vampire heroes more tortured, Saint is their man.
The theme of second-chance love in Blood Betrayed is softer than the theme of wild passion in Blood Avenged, but Saint and Solenne are no less passionate than Vasilije and Sasa. Their passion is simply tempered by a past neither one has ever been able to forget.
