Ramiel and Thane have been dispatched on a mission to find the only “born vampire”, the key that the Prophecy of Idolas states the Sons of Navarus need to defeat the Archons. They are both surprised to find that the born vampire is in fact a beautiful, strong young woman who has grown up knowing that her destiny is to save vampire-kind. Ramiel feels like he has never been fully in control of his destiny, and even the crazy possibility that he or Thane need to sleep with Noele to fulfill the prophecy makes him more comfortable with where his life is at.
Noele has grown into a woman over the short five years of her life, and the possibility that she will now get to see more of the world with the Sons of Navarus is more exciting than she ever dreamed. She knows that it is her destiny to mate with one of the Sons, and if she has her way, it will be with the brooding Visigoth Ramiel.
Drawn together, Noele, Ramiel and the other Sons work towards the impending showdown with the Archons, but a cruel twist of fate and betrayal may end the war before it ever really begins.
This is the book I have been waiting for in the Sons of Navarus series. There was an amazing amount of development in the overall plot. Blood Prophecy moves swiftly, introducing new characters and real consequences from the war with Archons. There are some truly heart-breaking moments in Blood Prophecy that will definitely form the rest of the series, and I can only hope that the next entry in the series is as gripping as Blood Prophecy.
Ramiel and Noele’s relationship develops just as fast as the previous couples’ highlighted in the series, but I feel they have one of the largest hurdles to overcome. I love that they are willing to talk to one another when things are not perfect.
Another highlight of Blood Prophecy is that Bisset actually spends a good deal of time checking in with the various Sons, and we see them all making progress on the Prophecy of Idolas. There is some resolution to the issue that Vasilije, Sasa, and Thane found themselves in and I for one was totally surprised where that went.
I still feel there are a few too many sex scenes—I am at the point where I generally skim over them—however, the beefed-up storyline, some truly life altering events, and one fairly awesome twist near the end make me glad I have stuck with this series.
