The Fraktioneers Series by Lu J Whitley


BloodLoss


This short prequel to BloodMarked, is another quick and easy, fast-paced page-turner.
The authors' descriptive writing, once again, pulled me into the story and kept me captivated.

I enjoyed finding out more about Jaromir and Stein, how they met and the reason behind their close relationship.

I hope I don't have too long to wait, for another book from Lu J Whitley.







Synopsis:

Join your favorite Book Boyfriends, Jaromir Ragnarsson & the ever-wonderful Stein, nearly 400 years before the events of BloodMarked (The Fraktioneers #1) in this all new prequel novella!

Cursed to live in the shadows, Jaromir Ragnarsson wanders the world, searching for a sign. What he finds wasn't exactly what he had in mind.

Nearly four hundred-fifty years after a fateful meeting with a Wyrd woman changes his life, Jaromir is no longer alone. His adoptive son is the light of his long life, and he believes he will do anything to keep him safe.

When that belief is tested, will he have the strength to do what is necessary?

Even if, no matter what he chooses, he loses?



BloodMarked


I enjoyed this book immensely. It's easy to read and clips along at a good pace.

The story is told from different viewpoints, alternating between the heroine and the hero. The plot flows well with plenty of twists, turns and action. The descriptions pull you into the book and you feel involved in the story.

The characters are well developed, Greta is a gutsy heroine with attitude, Jaromir (aka Yummy)is a hot vampire who has problems controlling his inner beast and Stein is a charming, muscle-bound, tattooed troll.

I had a hard time putting down, and was surprised by the sudden ending, which was possibly a bit too sudden, but left me begging for more.

Synopsis:

Her nightmares are real, and they're out for blood.

Greta Brandt's life is run of the mill, except for the nightmares - violent dreams of creatures that wear the skin of the people around her... and him, the man with the golden hair and incandescent red eyes.

After 800 cursed years, Jaromir Ragnarsson has finally found the violet-eyed woman with the star-shaped birthmark of the BloodMarked: Greta Brandt. But he's not the only one who's been searching for her.

When terror strikes close to home, Greta must finally accept her role in a world she thought only existed in her fevered dreams, putting her wavering trust in the one man who knows the full truth about her fate.




The Author:

Once upon a time, in a land far, far away, a girl was born who was just a little strange around the edges. One thing led to another, and now you're reading her stories.

Lu is a full-time writer and self-professed oddball who lives a quiet life in the mid-Midwest with her geeky, roboticist husband and four-legged children.
