Hello and welcome back to Adele Is Reading.
Today on the blog I have my book review of:
Saved by Blood, by Sadie Moss.
Saved by Blood is the first book in the The Vampire’s Fae series.
Trigger / Content Warnings: Fighting, Blood, Kidnapping (Main character wakes up in a room she doesn’t recognize, and tied to a bed she can’t escape from–scene is over quickly and she’s untied, and released), Skin-carving (from an assailant), Murder mention, Kidnapping mention.
They found me nearly dead. To save me, they had to turn me…
When I moved to New York after a bad divorce, I planned to re-invent myself… I just had no idea the ‘new me’ would be a vampire.
Or that the three (yes, three!) vampires who turned me would be the hottest, most frustrating men I’d ever met.
Now creepy shadow monsters are stalking me, and I don’t know why. But teaming up with these dangerously sexy brothers may be my best chance for survival, even though being around them does weird things to my heart.
The old me was too scared to even start dating again.
The new me?
She wants to devour all three of them.
This is the first book in The Vampires’ Fae Series, a medium-burn reverse harem story intended for ages 18+. This book contains strong language, sexual situations, and a heroine who doesn’t have to choose between her men.
From GoodReads [x]:
“REVERSE HAREM” IS, LITERALLY, THE OPPOSITE OF “HAREM”, WITH A GROUP OF MALES CENTERING ROUND A SINGULAR FEMALE, USUALLY WITH THREE OR MORE MALES. QUITE OFTEN FOUND UNDER THE ROMANCE GENRE.
Good start to the trilogy, though I believe that I am stopping my reading of The Vampire’s Fae series.
Honestly a good portion of Saved by Blood was entirely a damsel in distress plot line. Don’t get me wrong; I can enjoy a good damsel-in-distress plot. I just didn’t enjoy it within Saved by Blood. Saying that, I want to say, a little over halfway into the book Willow overcomes her emotions and learns how to fight and protect herself.
A lot of the plot was all over the place–and I mean that literally. It’s as if there are parts in the story that were copy-and-pasted into scenes that, together, do not make sense at all. For real for real.
The redeeming part of the story/book is that I kinda liked the characters. Speaking of, there are 4 different points of view within Saved by Blood. We read from Jarrett, Malcom, Sol, and Willow. I’ve got to say that the fact that the men’s personalities are entirely different from one another made it so their characters didn’t get muddled and combine into one character in my brain.
Overall, there were parts in the story that I truly liked. However, the rest of the story was a let down.
I gave Saved by Blood, 1 star.
