Review: Blood Born (#1)

Summary: (from goodreads) 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.

Blood Awakening is the 2nd book in the Blood Prophecy series and I have to say Jaime Manning has done it again. I really liked the turn out of this book. It continued smoothly from book one and finished on a surprisingly twisted end that I never expected. I have to say I was a little pissed at the end with what happened, but its bitter sweet since I know book 3 should be on the rise. Now I just have to wait until it comes out.

Although I loved the story, I was a little annoyed with Ava and her guilt towards Chance and Erik. I understand what happened and why she believes she's guilty but her constant apologies and crying really got to me after a while. I just wanted her to realize that both Chance and Erik were okay with what happened and that she could move on, but that never happened. I did however, love the triangle. There was a part in the story where I thought that Lacey would be a part of the triangle, but that didn't happen. That would have been a fun little twist. I'm hoping to find out more about Kacey's father in the next book since it wasn't really explained in this sequel. Now on to the ending! Jaime if you are reading this, it better not be true!! Please tell me it isn't true!! I surely hope not but I will definitely be biting my nails until the next book comes out so I know exactly what happened!! I can't wait. 

This is a fantastic read and I recommend it to everyone.
