Review by Loraine Oliver - Bloodlines (Conversion, #2) by S.C. Stephens - 5 Stars


Bloodlines(Conversion, #2, starts right where book 1 ended.At the beginning Teren and Emma are getting ready for their wedding, and now that they are having twins, they want to get married asap, so their children carry their father's name. 

This book was so good, I enjoyed it even more than the first one, if that is possible! This book is filled with love and laughter between Teren and Emma, and Teren's whole family; mom, dad, grandmother and great grandmother, and the love between Emma's mom and sister and herself, so even though things have been a little bit crazy, there is no doubt they all love each other and the new babies on the way are so much anticipated it is almost funny. Teren has expressed this so well in the following quote, "What he was really saying was that he would literally mourn me, miss me, and love me…for eternity. That he would never move on from me, would never marry another. I would always be his wife, no matter how many hundreds of years we were apart." The drawback being Emma is human, and will grow old and die.

Another good thing that happens to them: Hot Ben, although human has become Teren's friend forever and accepted him as he is, and does alot in the first book. and this one to protect Teren and his family. This makes Teren so happy as he has never had a friend like Ben, one that is there for him no matter what!

This book was so well written, and there is never a dull moment, and as the book progresses, the plot twists and turns and the angst it causes is off the charts as well as the danger. 

Something happens to cause the whole world of this family to change and you will have to read it to find out what happened. I could not believe it and was so shook up from it that I was actually crying while I was reading it.

Another thing I loved about these books so far is that S C Stephens puts a different twist on her vampire series, and it is awesome and makes these books so distinctive. These are the kind of books you buy in paperback, so you can put them on your "best loved" bookshelf. She portrays this as a loving family of vampires, who choose not to feed off of humans, but yet the story has the other side of the coin represented just as well, all vampires are not goo, do not have any principles and care only about where their next meal is coming from, no matter how they have to get it or who they destroy.

This book ends in a positive way, and I can't wait to read the third and last book of the series, Til Death. 
Step into the world of S C Stephens and her vampire series, you will be so glad you did!

I gave this book a 5*****Star rating. Thank you S C Stephens for writing such a wonderful series, but I did not expect anything less- after all she gave us all a massive book hangover when she gave us Kellan Kyle!!!
