  • Dracula Fever!

    Elisabeta is a skilled thief, forced to live off of her plunders and stolen goods. When her twin brother hears word that there is a treasure worth more than gold, she sets out to take it. However, the treasure is hidden in the vampire city and the captain of the guard holds the key. As a human, going into the vampire city is like going into the den of lions but she will do whatever it takes to obtain it, even if it means seducing the brute Dracula. From the beginning, I was captivated. Call me old school, but I love a good vampire story and this did not disappoint. The author's take on vampires is unique with bits of familiarity: no sunlight or reflections here. I was also very happy about Dracula. Even though he is not your traditional "I vant to suck your blood" kind of Dracula, I could tell that the author did her research and was making nods to the man who inspired the myth and legend: Vlad the impaler. I loved seeing bits of that history in this version. Not only that, he is a big brute that you cannot help but love. He is a little rough around the edges with a squishy, soft interior for those he calls his family. His interactions with Elisabeta are simply delectable. Her sassy attitude mixes well with his "tough guy" exterior and they have awesome chemistry together. This book is filled with flirting and "almost" moments that make you squeal and sigh. I also really liked Elisabeta as a character. Although she is very flawed and may make decisions that you want to pull your hair out over, you cannot help but feel for her and her situation. Without giving too much away, I appreciated how the author handles abuse and how abuse victims may act under certain circumstances. It is not always pretty but it's real. In all, I loved this book and I am excited to read the next installment. For those who love vampires and who want to see a fresh, new take on them and Dracula will love this story. If you also love romance, emotional rollercoasters, and happy endings, this is the book for you. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

  • Unlike any other Dracula story I've read...

    This is a story of Dracula, but this tale has not been told… until now. The only family Elisabeta has ever known is her brother. Together they steal, con, and even kill to make enough money to survive. Her brother conceives a wicked plan to steal a vast treasure and convinces Elisabeta to enact his plan. All she has to do is masquerade as a vampire, infiltrate Ichor Knell, seduce the captain of the guard, and make off with the treasure. Seems simple, right? There’s only one problem… Elisabeta is human and falls in love with Dracula, the captain of the guard. Elisabeta’s secret, once revealed, could be deadly for them both. Will her love bond with Dracula for all eternity or has she sealed their doomed fate? Bloodscourge is, simply put, an exceptional book every paranormal reader needs to devour. I know what you’re thinking, just another vampire story. Hold onto your hats, dear readers, for Bloodscourge is more than a vampire tale. In Sydney Winward’s Bloodborn series, authenticity reigns and she’s a masterful storyteller. Bloodscourge is an incredible read for many reasons but in my opinion, what makes this story stand out is Elisabeta. She’s such a strong heroine but has a vulnerability I wasn’t expecting. She’s an independent woman who is deadly with a sword. She spars with Dracula on several occasions yet is an innocent when it comes to matters of the heart. The plot moves at a solid with a full cast of characters. The romance between Elisabeta and Dracula is slow-burning which plays nicely with the action scenes. Once I started reading, I couldn’t stop. I became a part of the story and even dreamed about it a few times. If you love paranormal romance and looking for an original take on a gothic legend, pick up Bloodscourge. While this is a prequel to Bloodborn, it can be read as a standalone. Sydney Winward is fast becoming one of my favorite paranormal authors. Highly recommend! Disclaimer: I received a copy from the author in the hopes I'd review it. My Rating: 5+ stars
