Product description

Product Description

A human sacrifice throws vampires of two worlds, trueborn and baseborn, into an escalating conflict. One side pushes for revenge, the other for freedom. The trueborns stubbornly hunt for Anthony and Louis, pushed by Hesrah’s desire to avenge her human best friend, Alexa. The baseborns are divided between rallying with those challenging the rule of Ankhsis and obeying the trueborns.
What emerges from the portal between Earth and Ankhsis in the middle of the turmoil rocking both worlds is more dead than alive. Neither human, nor baseborn, and certainly not trueborn. This new being will either damn them all or be their race’s most powerful weapon. Will they trust it not to destroy them, or will Ankhsis decide putting it down is the only solution?
In the end, who is guilty? Who will pay? Will anyone survive its wrath?

5.0 out of 5 stars !!!!FANTASTIC~EXCITING~CAPTIVATING~MUST READ!!!! 23 June 2015
By Sue Allen Milkovich - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Fantastic second book in the Bad Blood Trilogy!! I was so excited when I saw the release date and bought it immediately. My Darling Alina, you DID NOT disappoint!!! This story continues where The Edge Of Hope ended and the action never stopped. This story includes all the characters from the previous story and shifts, twists and turns Alexa upside down. In this wonderfully written story Alexa learns more about herself and her true strength than ever before. The people in her life come and go, but who are the people of her very different future? I can't wait for book three!!! This strong, vulnerable, independent, outspoken heart of a warrior woman, deserves her happy ending!!! She deserves to have her own true love, does she already have it and is doubt clouding her judgment?? I just can't wait to see what happens next in this exciting, explosive, terrific trilogy, that I find captivating!!! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Grab your copies, people! 24 June 2015

Format: Kindle Edition
Alina’s first book of this trilogy, The Edge of Hope, is a travelogue of a very strong minded woman more than it is about vampires… seriously!At every turn, just when people underestimated her, Alexa turned around and made us do a double take and so, when that ended in a major cliffie with her existence on the line, I couldn’t help but take sides and form strong opinions about those who put her in such a situation using ‘The Guide to Mastering Underhanded Techniques’, it seemed like.

The second book, ‘The Breaking of Bonds’, picked up where the first one left off, and to my surprise, it did nothing more than to raise more questions about what was to become of the lovely girl Alexa once was.Waking up an outcast/stranger to both the vampire and human worlds, no one really knows what she is, how she is going to be when she recovers, or even if she is. And then, there was the big question of how and if she would be a danger to the vampire society where the portal manages to spit her out graciously.Enter Magnus: the reclusive Big-Man and Seth: the sidekick. Lol. Just kidding. Seth is a very well written character that you can’t help sympathise and love, despite his quirks. They take Alexa under their wing and help her acclimatise to a world that she is completely new to, and to which, she is a rather violent novelty.As we delve deeper into the murky waters that led to Alexa being the state she is in, finding out the culprit that was behind the brutality that she’d had to go through, we learn more about the original baddies, Anthony and his henchman. And also, why Louis was just a silent spectator in the proceedings instead of even trying to rescue her. Alexa is still one kickass character, her relationship dynamics with everyone changes, hence the possibility of a love triangle b/w Louis, Seth and her. The characters are so very, very unique in their own ways, that they always keep us guessing as to what will happen next, even if we think we know how a vampire is supposed to be behaving.I’m waiting with bated breath for the third book, since it promises to answer a lot of the questions that Alina raised. I’m just thankful for the fact that she didn’t leave me biting my nails like the last one, just needed a few tissues, is all.

5.0 out of 5 stars Action Filled!!!! 28 June 2015

Format: Kindle Edition
I was so excited when The Breaking of Bonds came out. This is book 2 in the Bad Blood series and if you haven't read the first book Edge of Hope you really need to because this book starts right after the first one.. Alina is an amazing author and Breaking Bonds was non stop from the first page. I could not put it down and actually had to read it a second time to make sure I didn't miss anything. I love Alexa and it's amazing what she's gone through and how strong she is.

This book really keeps you on your toes in my opinion and I can't wait for Book 3.

If you haven't read this series I highly recommend it. Alina is an amazing writer and you won't be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific follow up! I want more... 30 June 2015
By johanna - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Now I hardly ever read MF vampire books anymore, but seriously, this is an Alina Popescu and after The Edge of Hope, of course I had to find out what happened next. Alexa. Hesrah. Louis. Anthony. Magnus. When that first book ended, the mystery of the disappearing trueborn vampires deepened, Louis' inactions became a critical turning point, Hesrah was forced into doing something, and that confounding character mentioned but never expanded on, Philippe. My question then, as it is now: who or what is he?

For those of you who never read that first book, go get it now. It is a vampire story that is truly unique and sets the basis for this second book. At this point I have to warn readers, you are going to get lost if you have not read that first one. This book opens like the next chapter.

The author has this unique style of being highly visual and does not go around the bush like I do. She allows the reader to open the book, dive into the story, and come out breathless. So take a deep breath and have the time of your lives for Alexa is one newborn vamp who kicks ass like no one I've seen or read before. Not even Bella can compare to her.

Alexa is highly sexual but is also all emotions. She struggles to rediscover who she really is as the old human and the newly transformed. In the first place, she is supposed to be dead. Not alive and stronger than most. She confounds Magnus and that is not saying it lightly. She is stronger than most, again confounding the other vampires. She is more gifted than most which terrifies everyone around her. She is also like a snake whose territoritoriality can mean certain death. If there ever came a point in my life where I would want to be a role play character, I am leaning hard on Alexa. She is awesome. And then there was Seth, the SEAL-looking brother of Hesrah and Magnus' assistant, he is no Renfield. He is actually quite the character impossible to ignore or not love.

As the plot thickened, we finally get out answer why Louis acted immobile while Alexa was tortured in that last chapter of the first book. The answer? Philippe. ah ah ah **wavingfinger** you go read and find out who and what he is. I did. He is truly... obnoxious. As for Anthony? Well, he dropped a bombshell and I want to find out: who is it that Philippe worked for... the plot thickens even more...

Alina, you owe me the third book. Like, Pronto! Please don't make me wait????

Format: Kindle Edition
This is book 2 in a series and needs to be read in order. Alexa a awakens trapped in pain in the portal. She does finally get spit out on the other side. She feeds from a man waiting there. She finds out this is Seth Hesra’s brother. It takes her a while to get adjusted to being a vampire.
When she finds out Louis is being held by Anthony and tortured she goes back to rescue him and to find Anthony for the council.
This is an action packed, emotional story. It deals a lot with Alexa’s feelings. She has to adjust to feeding, her new strength, the betrayal of Louis, and her new feelings to Seth.
The descriptions in this book are great. I feel like I was in Romania and the other places she went to. I could feel her deep emotional turmoil. There was a happy for now ending but enough things that it appears there could still n=be another book.
If you like a strong female lead, different vampires, a well-built world, action, and some romance you will like this series. Be sure to read these in order or you won’t have a clue of what is going on here.
