BLOG TOUR: My POV of Blood Awakening by Jamie manning + Giveaway

Expected publication: April 23rd 2013 by Pendrell Publishing 
 Ava’s life went from bad to worse the night Chance became a vampire.

He won’t have anything to do with her. Ava understands why—because he blames her—but it doesn’t mean she likes it.

And it doesn’t help that she’s starting to feel something for Erik, the boy who once wanted her dead. Especially when Chance decides that he does still love her, and wants her to be with him for eternity.

Now she has a choice: Humanity…or forever as a vampire with Chance.

But Ava wants nothing more than to be human again. At least, she thought that was all she wanted.

Thankfully her best friend Kayla has a plan to distract Ava from her boy troubles, and they go in search of Kayla’s missing dad. A great idea, but one that brings Sebastian back into Ava’s life. Along with another, more sinister former member of his coven.

Sebastian and Zyris face off against Ava and her friends, resulting in Ava making yet another choice that changes the course of everyone’s lives, and leaves her wondering if being human again is really worth losing everything.--Goodreads


This book pulled me in right away and kept me up all night. It was fast paced, action pack and had bittersweet emotional angst throughout the story. I missed Ave and Chance so much and I was so happy to be back in this world!

So now that Chance is a vampire, things between Ava and him get so strained. You can see how much they love each other but they are also so damn stubborn. This is one of those situations where you are so close but yet so far. It’s heart breaking. Then there is Erik. Cool, cocky, hot and human he wants more than just a friendship with her. There is chemistry between them but she’s just no sure how she feels for him.

Contemplating a decision between staying with her first desire to going back to being human or choosing forever with Chance as a vampire has never been a more difficult issue. Torn between two boys and two worlds how can she choose?

As if her boy problems are not enough she now has another Vampire convent to worry about. Helping her best friend, Kayla, find her dad leads them to something much bigger than they ever anticipated.

I have so many things running through my head now that I’m done with this book! Waiting for Blood Revelation is going to be torture. This was such a great ride and I have to know what happens next!


Other Books in the Series


My name is Jamie and I am a writer.

I've always wanted to be a writer (like most writers, I'm sure) but not until the last few years have I taken it seriously (after I read a tiny, unknown book called Twilight). I was always told growing up that I had to get a job and take care of myself, so I pushed my dream of writing a book to the back of my mind and entered the workforce. Fast-forward many, many years and here I am, trying to make a go at it.

I stumbled across Blogger in 2010 and my world of writing exploded. I have met (via the web) so many amazing writers and industry professionals and book bloggers that have passed on their wisdom and experience and successes and failures. So many, in fact, that I have no excuse to sit down and write out the stories living in my head. Which is what I'm now attempting to do.

I enjoy reading more than most other things (well, except maybe for writing. And TV. No way am I giving up my TV) . I attempt to write YA (paranormal and dystopian) and I love it.

Blood Born, book one in The Blood Prophecy trilogy, was released by Pendrell Publishing April 24, 2012. Book two, Blood Awakening, is coming April 2013.
