Thoughts of Marianne, his dead wife, were never far from his mind, so the punishment game usually kicked in within minutes of la petit mort. Once I felt his guilt, I added some of my own over the fact I'd helped cause it, and the resultant snowball effect was a good enough reason to avoid sex with him altogether.

But with Possession, Blood Ties Jennifer Armintrout managed to make my wishes come true. She seemed like a fairy god mother who turned a fairy tale to reality and outdid herself in the process. The story this time inc Book Two in the Blood Ties Series and I want to really like this series, but keep feeling there is just something missing. I know exactly where that something is: the romance. It's really not working for me, BUT the story still is. So, I'm in a difficult position. Read on because the story & plot is good and just hope the romance side starts to make sense OR give it up now.

My father always said fear was a weakness. I tore through this book just as quickly as the first one ("Blood Ties: The Turning"), very hard to put down. Well, that's easy to say when you don't have to worry about vampire slayers or holy water.

It turns out that Nathan's been possessed by one of the most powerful and wicked vampires alive-the Soul Eater. And who knows what vile plan he's concocted?With the Soul Eater and my possessed sire on the loose, I have a lot to fear. Including being killed.

When I tried to communicate through the blood tie, all I got back was crippling pain. Did that mean he was dead? Just imagining it intensified the agony, so I shielded myself from his thought. r the void where they once were. All I wanted was to feel Nathan’s arms around me, to hear him tell me that everything would be all right. Instead, I cried, grateful for the mechanical noises that would keep Max from overhearing my sobs

My father always saidfear was a weakness.Well, that's easy to say when youdon't have to worry about vampireslayers or holy water. I hate fear, butundead life goes on. In the two monthssince I was attacked in the hospital morgueand turned into a vampire, I've killed my evil sire,Cyrus, fallen in love with my new sire, Nathan, and haveeven gotten used to drinking blood. Just when things arefinally returning to normal—as normal as they can bewhen sunlight can kill you—Nathan becomes possessed.And then he slaughters an innocent human.Now it's my job to find Nathan before the VoluntaryVampire Extinction Movement does, because they're justwaiting for an excuse to terminate him—and anyonefoolish enough to help him. But it gets worse. It turnsout that Nathan's been possessed by one of the mostpowerful and wicked vampires alive—the Soul Eater.And who knows what vile plan he's concocted?With the Soul Eater and my possessed sire on the loose,I have a lot to fear. Including being killed. Again.
Admittedly this books predecessor could get annoying. But not so much that I didn't want to finish the series. And "Possession" has an up side something new to offer to the reader other than constant indecision and some sex and violence (not always mutually exclusive) opens up the world Carrie was forced into by becoming a vampire.

Things were going just fine for Carrie and her new sire Nathan (if you say ignoring their mutual attraction in any adult way) when suddenly Nathan was possessed and carving weird symbols into his arms that despite the vampire thing won't heal. And things get worse when he kills someone and the movement sends out an execution order.

Carrie knows she needs help so her turns to Nathan friends Max (also a movement assassin) and heads to movement headquarters in Spain to plea for Nathan's life. But while there not only is another assassin (Bella, a werewolf) assigned to the killing as Max is seen as biased, Carrie learns from an ancient vampire known as the Oracle that the soul eater her old sire (Cyrus' father) is trying to make himself into a god.

Leaving Max and Bella to track Nathan (Max to try and save him Bella to kill him) Carrie takes off following a rumor that someone has brought Cyrus back to life on the slim chance he'll know how to help Nathan as the soul eater is Nathan's sire.

Like the first book this novel is filled with Carrie changing her mind every ten seconds about anything regarding her emotional life. Unlike the last we get third person scenes from Max (very funny) and Cyrus (being dead changed him.) All in all this book is just as fun as the last while being less annoying.

Four stars.
My review of the first book "The Turning" was less than stellar. I had qualms about whether I would like this series. I can say that I am extremely glad that I went on to read "Possession". Here we meet up with Carrie and Nathan, cozy and content until Nathan becomes possessed. About the same time, miles away, Cyrus, Carries evil and dead first sire, is pulled from a deathly limbo to find himself in this world again, and human. Human Cyrus is maybe even more interesting the cruel, pshyco vampire Cyrus in his quest to face his previous nature and the unimaginable acts of terror he had inflicted for decades. Carrie unfortunately still is just not a very likeable heroine. She is too easily swayed from side to side, not just in her opinions but in her men as well. I also kept forgetting she was a vampire for some reason as I read this book! Nathan too is sort of dull, even when possessed. He is so busy wrapped up in his past that we never really see him as who he is in the context of the current story. Max, the vampire assassin and Bella, the werewolf assassin make interestng side characters whose portions of the book were among the most enjoyable. The entire first half of the book was incredibly exciting to me, watching Cyrus's humanity unfold. There isn't tons of actual action in this book, but there was enough to keep me from truly missing it. My biggest complaint came at the close of the novel, which to me truly felt unfinished. I understand a series is supposed to leave some loose ends to intrigue you enough to grab the next volume, but it should at least satisfy the reader on most levels. I really feel here I was left hanging. Overall, I found this story to be much more enjoyable than the "Turning" and I look forward to seeing if this uphill arc continues for the third installment. This is a good book in the realm of vampire fiction.
The vampire broke through the gray veil to pull Cyrus back from the realm of the dead to the living. Realizing he is a weak human surrounded by vampires, Cyrus vows to cut out the heart of Carrie who killed him when he was bloodsucker.

In Grand Rapids Carrie lives with Nathan who saved her life when her former sire Cyrus almost killed her. However, at their apartment she is attacked by a berserker demon, who to her shock turns out to be Nathan. He flees just before he would have killed her. She calls their best friend vampire Max Harrison, who tells her he will be right over.

Cyrus learns from the weak female in the church with him that a priest and nun were slaughtered there, but she is to keep him alive. At about the same time Max calls the Volunteer Vampire Extinction Movement who flies them to their headquarters in Madrid where they learn a maniac has sliced the throats of women back in Grand Rapids and General Breton tells them he believes Nathan has become a killer who must die. While Carrie visits the oldest vampire, the Oracle, who tells her Cyrus is back and to beware of the Soul Eater, who happens to be Cyrus' father, Breton assigns the murder of Nathan to werewolf Bella DeCesare. Soon everyone will collide in Grand Rapids.

The key to the second Blood Ties tale (see BLOOD TIES: THE TURNING) is that readers will believe that vampires and werewolves are real species because the cast is solid and deep. The two subplots consistently intermingle and cross. This leads to an electrifying action-packed story line that contains a strong psychological suspense element yet never slows down until the climax but the audience will not know what to expect until the final collision.
