Months after her dangerous encounter with the vampire overlord Saloman, Scottish academic Elizabeth Silk is still trying to cope with both the demands of her vampire-hunting bloodline-and the desire she feels for Saloman, the immortal she brought back from the grave. But when Saloman's ancient sword becomes the object of a ruthless race between humans and vampires, Elizabeth must decide between unwanted loyalty, or unholy love.

Literary's Views

The first story in Marie Treanor’s Awakened By Blood series really entertained me so I was excited to read the next installment Blood Silk. While I didn’t enjoy Blood Sin as much as I did Blood Silk it was still an enjoyable story. In this installment of the series was all about adventure and whether Elisabeth and Salomon will end up being together or fighting.

Throughout the story Elisabeth and Salomon was constantly circling each other both with the intention of gaining Salomon’s lost sword that is said to hold ultimate power. On opposite sides of the spectrum it was entertaining to see how their relationship would survive or fizzle.

I really enjoyed Salomon’s character though he had the typical moody tall, dark, mysterious vampire set on world demonstration; there were layers to him that I enjoyed. He was real from the beginning and didn’t make any apologies for it. He lived in the grey area and defiantly made things interesting.

While Salomon brought the danger and drama Elisabeth brought her own drama to the story as well. Being the strong independent academic that she’s known for, her relationship with Salomon really threw her world for a crazy spin.  Which is why I liked Blood Silk so much, watching her normal world get thrown to the wind was really entertaining. Spending time away from Salomon, though she still had feelings for him, Elisabeth had time to think and rationalize wondering whether he was the one for her. That’s totally understandable but the back and forth with her feelings for Salomon made me wish that she would do something about it bringing even more drama to the story.

Though when Elizabeth and Salomon are together the sparked defiantly did fly and entrapped me all over again. While the adventure and the race at who would get the sword was enjoyable I wished there was more moments with Elizabeth and Salomon, focusing more on them and the drama with their relationship.

Overall Blood Sin by Marie Treanor a great story, the writing was clear and understandable, the characters were interesting and as the story progressed where Elizabeth and Salomon ended up set things up for an interesting future and I can’t wait to see how things goes.
