Review of Blood Curse by Jen Ponce

Blood Curse cover

Genre: Horror, Fantasy, LGBT

 

Lorelei is trapped in a frightening world of vampire servitude. It is her destiny and duty to become a blood-servant to a powerful vampire. Unlike her twin sister, Lorelei can’t stand the idea, so she runs away and happens upon a vampire, Issala, who is part of a group of vampire hunters. Issala longs for death for herself and the Lady Catherine–the vampire who killed her previous lover and who Lorelei’s sister is servant to. When the two women discover Lorelei’s blood can kill vampires, Issala must decide if death is truly what she longs for.

 

Blood Curse is a fantastic vampire novel. Jen Ponce did a wonderful job explaining how vampires could exist and how some could be bitten but not become full-blood vampires, something not all vampire novels accomplish. This book has no shortage of action and sex, including some disturbing scenes involving the Lady Catherine. The characters in the story are well written, and I couldn’t help but love Issala and Lorelei and hate Catherine and Morganna. Women are the dominant characters in this book, and while not all of them are good, the women in this book are certainly strong characters who do what is within their power to take charge of their own lives. Blood Curse is full of action, love, and as Jen Ponce says, “kick ass women and oogy monsters.” I loved this book! It is one to buy for some great horror entertainment.
