    One thought on “Bloodlust”

    1. I originally wrote this when Tascha and I had a long discussion about HIMYM and the habit of writing a letter to your future self, explaining why a relationship (book) worked or didn't work out for you. So, this is a letter to my future self, because Tascha is a bad influence. (And I love her very much.)Patricia, in a moment of deep daddy issued rage you ordered those two nov­els despite your ini­tial belief that they were writ­ten for young adults – an age-group you shy away from in real l [...]

    2. 3.5 starsAfter Jill and Declan get away with the Vampire King’s baby, a dhampyr female, Declan hides the baby. This story picks up with Jill meeting up with Noah, to see about her and Declan’s condition. It is safe to say I recommend reading Nightshade before this one. Declan is a dhampyr who has taken injections for years to suppress rage. At the end of the first book he was injected with a permanent serum. The serum strips away his emotions, even his sex drive. In the first part of this st [...]

    3. It has been two weeks since Jill has been injected with the Nightshade that made her a vampire’s favorite flavor, a flavor that has the harmful side effect of death. She is on the road with an emotionless Declan and they are searching for a cure or reversal or any piece of hope to her current situation. With the minimal romance this book felt more urban fantasy than paranormal romance. The spine clearly lists this book as a paranormal romance. I was intrigued by the idea of a hero that could n [...]

    4. In Six Words:liked plot but didn’t like romanceWhy did I read this? And am I glad I did?:I read Nightshade earlier this year and loved it. I even had this pre-ordered. Now let me first mention that I read this front to back. It held my attention with no issues (well unless you consider me not wanting to stop to eat an issue). So why only 3 stars?! I didn’t like how the romance played out. It seemed far too back and forth. I was shocked to find that I had switched sides and then was ultimatel [...]

    5. Ahhhh, I'm so happy I started and finished this duology in February. While it didn't on a cliffhanger, giving me a satisfying ending, you can just feel the potential it would have for a longer series.I miss the world already.

    6. *Rating* 3.0*Genre* Urban Fantasy*Review*Bloodlust is the second installment in the Nightshade series. The story picks up shortly after the events of Nightshade and finds Jillian and Declan on the run from vampires who know all about the Nighshade virus that flows in Jillians veins. They are also working with Noah, a former government scientist who has become a friend, to find a cure for the toxin before it's too late for her to do anything about it. *Please refer to Nightshade to what actually [...]

    7. My English review: betweendandr/2013Mon avis en français: betweendandr/2013Suite et fin donc de la série Belladone. Autant vous dire que j'attendais cette suite avec impatience pour enfin connaître le dénouement de cette surprenante histoire. Après un premier tome riche en action avec des rebondissements en tous genres, j'étais curieuse de découvrir ce que Michelle Rowen pouvait bien réserver à son héroïne, Jillian. Et on peut dire qu'encore une fois j'ai été bien servie ! On retrou [...]

    8. I read the first book in this series, Nightshade earlier this year and really enjoyed it. Michelle Rowen set up a very engaging, action-packed vampire world. Bloodlust starts right where Nightshade leaves off. Declan has been injected with a serum to control his dhampyr abilities. This leaves him unable to love, or feel any emotion. This is a problem since Jill thinks she is in love with Declan, but he can’t return this sentiment. Jill is still struggling with the poisonous Nightshade running [...]

    9. Bloodlust by Michelle RowenParanormal Romance –July 5th, 20114 ½ starsMichelle Rowen's second book in her Nightshade urban fantasy series starts out with a bang. The main characters are on the run from evil vampires and covert, deadly human forces. Although this is the second full-length novel, it can be read by itself but by doing so I think the reader will lose some of the intense dynamics between the two main characters which kept me spellbound.Jill was an ordinary girl, that is until she [...]

    10. When I first started this series, I got the feeling of it being more of an urban fantasy than a paranormal romance. While there was definitely some sexy scenes in the first book, it was still edgy enough to be a darker read. So when Bloodlust released, I was excited to jump back into the world of dark and suspense with Jillian and Declan.What I loved the most was the turmoil between Jillian and Declan. While they are both attracted to each other, they each have their reasons for staying at a saf [...]

    11. This is the second book, but third story, in Rowen's Nightshade series and it doesn't disappoint. It is my favorite of the three. Declan, scarred physically and emotionally, is still one of urban fantasy's sexiest characters. The chemistry between him and Jill is off the charts in this story.While it is written as a stand alone book, there is so much background and relationship minutiae you'll miss if you don't read the others first.This installment in the series has the former vampire king, Mat [...]

    12. Wow. It probably tells you everything you need to know about my reaction to this book that when I bitched about the thing that most annoyed me about it, a friend asked me if I was finally reading Twilight.The thing is that the premise (a heroine who'd been injected with a serum that made her blood both irresistible AND deadly to vampires) had SO MUCH potential had it been handled skillfully. Alas, however, the serum also appeared to afflict our heroine with a complete loss of any sense of self-p [...]

    13. 3.5 stars.Ok so I did enjoy this book a bit more.I liked Mathias already, but in the first book we only got a glimpse. Now his role was more prominent and I thoroughly enjoyed it! Now, I can't say I was crazy about Declan or that I get how Jillian could fall in love with him so fast especially seeing how he was at first and how little time they spent together. For me he was so-so ,but whatever it was a good book overall and I like the crazy evil twin idea. It reminded me of the movie Prestige fo [...]

    14. I loved this. Really took to the characters and I enjoyed the story line. I was slightly torn between Declan and Matthias, but I was happy with how things turned out in the end.

This story picks up with Jill meeting up with Noah, to see about her and Declan’s condition. It is safe to say I recommend reading Nightshade before this one.

    16. Mon avis en FrançaisMy English reviewAprès la fin du premier tome j’étais vraiment curieuse de voir ce que le deuxième tome nous réservait. Étant d’ailleurs aussi le dernier tome de la série, j’avais un peu peur de voir comment allait se dérouler les événements.On retrouve donc nos deux héros sur la route, Declan essaye de se maîtriser du mieux qu’il peut maintenant qu’il vit sa vie en dehors du laboratoire et Jillian aux portes de la mort après la diffusion du poison dans [...]

    17. This was the second book in Rowen's Nightshade series. This series definitely has more of a urban fantasy bent to it than Rowen's other series. While this was an okay addition to the series I found the chemistry between the characters and the plot to be a little bland.This book picks up a few weeks after Nightshade. Jillian and Declan are on the run; the poison in her blood continues to slowly kill Jillian as well as tempt Declan, while Declan is gradually loosing the control that the serum gave [...]

    18. After reading book 1 in this series, Nightshade, I was hooked and I had to see what happened next. Bloodlust picks up just a few weeks after Nightshade. Jill is on the run, charged with protecting the former Vampire King’s (Matthias') daughter, who was in danger from a society that would kill for her blood. Declan, a Dhampir again under the influence of a serum that curbs his emotions, is with Jill, trying to protect her. Jill’s poisonous blood is slowly killing her, and a terrible enemy is [...]

    19. Bloodlust By Michelle RowenCopyright July 2011Published Berkeley Sensation/Paranormal RomanceFor those who feast on blood, Jillian Conrad is a fatal attraction.

    20. Il serait temps de donner et de poster cet avis quand même !!!Je crois qu’il m’est de plus en plus difficile de donner mon ressenti sur des sagas que j’adore ! Ce second tome a été tout aussi excellent que son prédécesseur.J’avais hâte de lire ce second tome, j’ai dû patienter et faire passer des lectures déjà programmées, mais cela a été dur d’attendre. J’ai profité d’aller au salon pour l’amener et le dévorer dans le train.Que c’était bon et génial, je n’a [...]

    22. As seen on Rabidreads:Bloodlust may have a shot at Most Vulnerable Protagonists Before the Plot even gets Underway.   The triangle of Matthias, Declan, and Jillian is poisoned.   Each one of them makes it clear to the other that they have anywhere from a couple of days to a pair of weeks to live.   It is with this high volume of danger and brisk pacing (everything takes place within three days or so) that the pages fly.   The twists, mainly of an emotional nature since the triangle is alread [...]

    23. RATING: 4 VAMPIRE STARS!!I enjoyed this installment more than the first book, ‘Nightshade’ in this series. I am rather baffled after reading some reviews that some readers thought to read book 2 before book 1. That kind of doesn’t make sense to me as it’s a series to be read in order. I think you would miss some of the reasoning’s behind certain things Michelle Rowen has written into book 2. Having said that, I still think Michelle can dig a bit deeper with her writing. I am really get [...]

    24. All my reviews posted on Auntie Spinelli ReadsMan, this book was intense. Rowen outdid herself in this one. This was an emotional rollercoaster of a read. shock to anger to despair, I felt like I was right there with Jill at every turn. Rowen really injected you as a reader into the story in a way that surpassed the first book. There were so many times I was engrossed in this book, reading open-mouthed in awe (and exclaiming "oh shit!" out loud). Declan's mood swings (caused by his serum) are ba [...]

    25. MICHELLE'S REVIEW:RATING : 4 VAMPIRE STARS!I enjoyed this installment more than the first book, ‘Nightshade’ in this series.

    26. SoI didn't hate this book. I haven't read the first one yet but there was all this back story to fill in the blanks. Always nice that you don't have to read the first book to know what's happening.This was so close to being a 4 (seriously 1/2 stars) that I hate to give it three but the problems I had I couldn't really ignore.And that landed firmly in the laps of Jillian and Declan. Jillian because she somehow managed to ignore the wants and wishes of everyone she cares about because of selfish r [...]

    27. Originally Posted at thespinecracker/I am still shocked by the amount of twists and turns this book had in it.

Normally I'm fueled to continue reading "just 1 more chapter" because I can't stop until event "whatever" happens, but here 14 ot [...]

    28. CONTAINS SLIGHT SPOILERSI absolutely loved the first book, but this book just didn't do it for me. First of all the more the book progressed the more I started to dislike Jillian. I don't normally have a huge problem with selfish characters, but if you change certain people into vampires against their will just because you don't want them to die? Yeah, what's up with that? God knows I can be quite the selfish prat myself, but to take someone's choice away isn't something I would do. Especially i [...]

    29. “Bloodlust” by Michelle Rowen is the second book in the Nightshade series and it’s as good as the first one!The story continues and now Jillian the ex-ordinary girl and now too lethal for the vampires because of the injected formula in her blood is hunted from the vampires and she is in run with her Dhampyr protector, Declan, who has another poison in his system to fight. The two of them are trying to find ways to save themselves from the poisons. But, now they have to deal with other matt [...]
