The Story: After just having died while saving all of humanity, Julia wakes up to a world where no vampires exist. Unexplainably, she and Nicholas are the only ones who remember the past. Julia’s wish to be a normal teen has come to pass, and like a gift, they can start their happily ever after.
That was until a new teacher showed up. To everyone else, Mr. Cruor is just a good looking guy with a voice that makes everything sound exciting, including stories of a bunch of dead guys. However, Julia knows Mr. Cruor. Stuck in his class, Julia is afraid that he’s not here to teach her history. He’s here for something else and there’s nothing she can do about it.
Following the Onyx Talisman, OUT FOR BLOOD is volume 1 of a spin-off series of serials, each at 20,000 words. Start here, or immerse yourself with The Talisman Trilogy to get the drama first hand.
My Review: I loved reading the Talisman Trilogy, and was sort of sad that I didn't get to know what happened after everything went back to "normal". Well, Brenda Pandos gave us readers and fans a continuation of Nick and Julia's story!! And man, its just as awesome as the first series!! Nothing is as it seems, and Brenda Pandos keeps you guessing! You don't have to read the first trilogy to start Blood Wars, but I would recommend it, as it helps to know why Nick and Julia and Phil all act how they do!
