The stunning conclusion to the Blood Type series finds the world in chaos and turmoil with one final battle left to determine who will survive—humans or vampires.
She had the world on her shoulders. Now she has nothing.
Reyna Carpenter was twenty-one when she became a live-in blood escort for the ruthless and darkly handsome vampire Beckham Anderson. She thought this was just a small price to pay for feeding her brothers back home.
But nothing went as planned. Not even her tumultuous relationship with Beckham. And now she wonders if anything will ever be the same again.
As she finds herself in the midst of a losing rebellion, she and her trusted friends must flee from a city conquered by the vampire elite. With their plans blown to pieces and everything they knew and loved gone, their future hangs in the balance.
Despite all she has lost, Reyna must rise from the ashes, reclaim the life that was stolen—and complete her mission, once and for all.
I am usually one to wait to read my ARCs in order of when I need to have my review posted, but not with this one. I was so anxious for this book that I have been refreshing my email for days just waiting for it to be sent. When it was finally sent, you better believe that everything else was put aside so I could read it!
Blood Cure picked up right where Blood Match left off and it was a stunning conclusion to this unique, original world that K.A. Linde has brought to us. I was so happy to learn so much more about Beckham and Reyna as a whole and the amazing the connection that they two of them share. They each grew to understand each other in a way that they never had before and it was truly fascinating to watch their growth over this series. I saw Reyna come into her own skin and become the leader that these people needed, and I saw Beckham finally learn to relinquish the space to allow her to spread her wings while always having her back.
I loved the twists and turns that this book took because I definitely didn’t see some of them coming! I was amazed with how the whole story came together and the ending was absolutely perfect! It was just what this story needed!
I highly recommend this series to those who love: paranormal romance, vampires, and a beautiful connection for the ages!
Overall Rating: 5/5 Stars!
Every once in a while a trilogy or series will come along that knocks me right off my feet. K.A. Linde’s Blood Type trilogy was one of those reads. I’ve always enjoyed a bit of paranormal romance, but was burned out on them by the late 2000s. After the Twilight hype hit, the book world was saturated with vampire and werewolf stories, and eventually every story just sounded the same to me. So I took a break for a really long time. But after reading the synopsis for Blood Type, I decided to give it a try. Worst case scenario, I just wouldn’t continue with the series if I didn’t like it. Fortunately for me, I loved the first book and couldn’t wait to get my hands on books two and three. I was desperate to learn more about this world, and more about these characters and this thrilling conclusion did not disappoint.
Like Charli said above, Blood Cure takes off right where book two ended, and we’re immediately thrust into the action and intrigue of the world of Visage. The pacing of this book was excellent and never once did I feel let down or bored. Every turn of the page was a new revelation, and I was blown away by the twists and turns that I never saw coming. This, by far, is Linde at her best and you could feel the love she has for this story and the characters in every single word she wrote. It’s a true gift of a writer when they can take the characters that live in their mind and make them see so incredibly real that the reader cannot distinguish the story from reality.
This series is the perfect blend of action, dystopian world building and romance. This is the second trilogy I’ve read this year that was written in this type of manner and both blew me away with their messages and story telling. If you’ve walked away from paranormal romance, or don’t think this book will be your speed, stop all those thoughts and pick up book one Blood Match. If you love romance, you will love this book, and I can guarantee that you will fall in love with these characters. This trilogy has cemented K.A. Linde as one of my favorite authors in the romance world, and I’ll continue to read anything she writes because gems like these should not be missed!
A startling new vision of paranormal romance: When a human ventures into the world of vampires—a decadent milieu of blood-bonds and betrayal—she discovers that not all is what it seems.
For Reyna Carpenter, giving up her body isn’t a choice. It’s survival.
In a civilization laid waste by poverty and desperation, Reyna accepts a high-paying position with the wealthy and hungry vampire elite. Her new job is as the live-in blood escort for the intimidating, demanding, and devilishly handsome Beckham Anderson. He’s everything she expected from a vampire, except for one thing—he won’t feed off her.
Reyna soon discovers that behind Beckham’s brooding, wicked façade lies a unique and complex man. And that, in a dark and divided world, she is more valuable than she ever would have believed.
For with each passing night, Reyna can’t shake the sensation that it’s Beckham who’s afraid of her.
Note: Reyna and Beckham’s story continues in Blood Match.
As the provocative, sensual Blood Type series continues, the rare bond between Reyna and Beckham is threatened by betrayal, greed, and twisted secrets.
