Cedric is a Celt living in a village near Aquae Sulis. His mother took him to a druid named Korax when he was younger because she said he had dark connections. Korax takes him in and trains him to take over as a healer for the village.
Rory is a stranger who comes to the village and offers his services as a trained hunter. He tells them that he has been following a monster. When an animal is found mutilated in the woods, he is given the job as hunter.
Cedric has vivid dreams of blood and cutting flesh. The dreams scare him because he doesn’t understand them so he keeps them to himself. Korax gives him the job of watching the bonfire during All Hallows Eve and making sure the flame doesn’t go out. During the night while sitting in front of the fire, a stranger named Newlyn comes to him who is neither male nor female. Newlyn seduces Cedric and lets him cut its flesh while they have sex next to the fire. Cedric loses himself in the blood and keeps cutting even after Newlyn passes out on top of him. Newlyn is gone the next day, but it shakes Cedric to the core. When Rory comes to the village and tells them that he is hunting a monster, Cedric is worried that he may be the monster. When cut up bodies of woman start appearing in the woods, Cedric starts to believe that he may be responsible for the deaths because he dreams of them the night before they die. Cedric can’t help being attracted to Rory, and they become lovers. Should Cedric tell Rory about his dreams and take the chance of Rory killing him because of it or should he just keep it to himself?
Bloody Passion by Laura Tolomei was a dark story full of magic and bloody dreams that can take you to the edge of sanity. I loved it! Laura keeps you at the edge of your seat trying to stay one step ahead of the characters in her book. You are trying to figure out the killings at the same time Cedric is and you can’t help but wish that it isn’t him that is doing it. Rory is magnificent in his role of hero that comes to rescue or slay Cedric. While following the story, you want them to end up together but you always have that thought in the back of your mind about the dreams and what exactly they might mean. The sex is hot and might not be suitable for those that blush easily.
