I fully expect many reviews to describe this series as hot, hot, hot and boy is that true. But that is not just what these stories are about. This is a truly exciting and amazing story arc. From beginning to end, the world evolves as the characters set out on their own journeys of self-discovery and love. And that is really what these stories are about. Love!
And just from a technical point of view, Tracy’s writing style is precise and her attention to detail is incredible. I just love to read her prose.
This is a truly captivating series - intrigue, suspense, action and love - that I found difficult to put down.
This is such a fantastic box set that is set in a modern day world where vampires are real; amongst other creatures that go bump in the night and humans are just trying to survive. The plot thickens with each book, but all have action, drama, politics and super hot menage. My favorite trio was Nathanial, Sebastian and Winter. The ending was a bit rushed for my taste, but certainly not predictable. This box set kept up late reading many nights because it's that good.
I've read a couple books from the series over the years but the box set it's just amazing! What I like the most are the commentaries on the short stories. I always love to know about the author's machinations 😉
I have to say that my favourite story is Blood Knot still to this day. Niall, Sebastian and Winter held something special but the rest of them are awesome as well. This is an impressive story, so many relatable social issues, so many different places, so very well written, and sooo scorching hot! Just buy it and treat yourself this holidays =)
Flesh + Blood is the boxed set of the Blood Stone series by Tracy Cooper-Posey. There are five main books: Blood Knot, Blood Stone, Blood Unleashed, Blood Revealed, and Blood Ascendant. I read this series (minus Amor Meus, a collection of 3 short stories, nestled between the first two books in this collection), some time ago, but this time through was even better. I started, this time, by reading Amor Meus, then backtracked to the first book, Blood Knot, and was hooked all over again. In each of the books, we're introduced to another ménage of individuals, yet each set of main characters continue to remain relevant and interesting with each subsequent book. The starting point of the series immediately pulls the reader into the sturm and drang of the main core of vampires and the humans (and non-humans), with subtle introductions of future persons of importance as the story moves forward. This is a series that needs to be read from beginning to end, because the final books take the reader to a place they never saw coming. The arc of the story drives the reader forward, sliding in new twists and turns when least expected. Make sure you have plenty of time for reading, because you won't want to put it down. I wish there was more of this series.
This was binge reading at its sublime best. To be able to follow all the characters, to some degree, through the entire story was wonderful. Even if I missed a lot of sleep to do it. Each and every one of the characters will thrill and delight and, for me, it’s impossible to have an outright favourite. Each one must find the way to their loved ones and learn to love without strictures. The physical sharing of that love is graphic and real. Lovemaking at its very best. But what else could the reader expect from this author? Perfection... and you get it!!
Great boxset and as usual Tracy doesn't hold anything back. She gets you hooked right from the start and you just have to keep reading until the end.
Action, intrigue and romance (super hot rated!)
Get the set, as once you read one you will want to read them all and this way you don’t have to wait!
Loved reading all the back stories in between the main novels, Tracy is a master of creating interesting characters, so the novella’s just give you that little bit more insight into finding out how each character ticks. It deepens your understanding of the relationships and is so historically interesting.
The fast paced plots with the action, intrigue and romance thickens with each book and will keep you fully engaged and up all night.
This series will set you on the path to becoming a long time Tracy Cooper-Posey Fan if your not already.
I Highly recommend
I enjoyed this boxed set immensely!! Thank you for wrapping these incredible books into one awesome boxed set to be enjoyed. The plot is full of intrigue and completely unpredictable, with lots of twists and turns.
The characters introduced are wonderful and linger in the reader's memory long after you finished reading the story. The action is fast paced and nail biting at times. The emotions run deep and true. The love conquering all is absolutely sublime!
This is one of my favourite vampire series! The erotica is so scorching, it could curl paper books pages. Overall, a magnificent read!!
