Review: One Bite (Blood Prince Series #2) by Jennifer Blackstream

book cover for Blood Prince 2 - One Bite by Jennifer Blackstream

Hello Avid Readers. Today I’m sharing my thoughts about One Bite by Jennifer Blackstream. Book 2 in her bestselling paranormal romance series, Blood Prince.

Last year, I decided that mini reviews were the way forward for this particular book blogger. 😉 This means that I only write full detailed reviews for the books I receive from authors, publishers and PR organiser (ARCs). When I read a book that I’ve bought for myself, I share my thoughts within a paragraph or two that I publish on Amazon UK, Goodreads and here on my blog.

I first read One Bite back in November 2018, However, I didn’t post my review here for some reason. , I’m remedying that right now …

Jennifer Blackstream continues her sensual Blood Prince series with a Snow White tale like never before. A sizzling tale of a power-hungry vampire and a fierce rusalka maiden -- unlikely soul mates whose passionate tempers and fierce determination will put their tentative alliance to the test.

A power-hungry vampire in search of a fruitful alliance...Kirill is a vampire prince plotting to be a vampire king. His immortal father has no intentions of vacating the throne anytime soon, but all good things come to those who wait...and plan. Bit by bit, Kirill is gathering political allies, forming alliances with goblins, trolls, and any other magical creatures who will speak with him. Unfortunately, his ruthless machinations can only get him so far. Some situations just require a woman's touch. If only the fiery maiden with the power to help him didn't strain his control over his lust for blood... and more.

A rebellious siren with a song to soothe the savage heart...Irina will not cower. Not from her evil sorceress stepmother, and not from the vampire prince whose fangs threaten her with death even as his lips raise the heated desire of her bloodline. With a dagger at the ready, she agrees to a bargain -- her aid in his pursuit of political alliances with creatures beyond the veil in return for a reduction in the royal tithe her people are forced to pay the crown. If only sharp fangs and a sharp tongue weren't such an incendiary combination...

Will the vampire's love for the rusalka maiden win out over his all-consuming political ambition? Or will the glass coffin keep its treasure?


What Did I Think About One Bite?

Another Gripping New Twist To A Favourite Traditional Tale.

I really enjoyed this book. I am becoming a fan of the way Ms Blackstream takes traditional folk/fairy tales and makes them her own. This time it was Snow White that gets the Blackstream treatment!

I found this story very easy to read and get caught up in; the writing style was intelligent, the pace and plot development was well balanced, I enjoyed the twists and turns to the various mysteries woven throughout this untraditional paranormal romance tale.

I added the narration too and was impressed with Matt Addis‘ performance; the pace of his narration was just right and I enjoyed his vocal variances for the dialogue.

There is a background story arc that binds all of the Blood Prince books but each one can be read as a standalone romance.

I have added the whole series to my Amazon wish list and book 2 Golden Stair and novella 2.5 What Big Teeth You Have are already waiting impatiently on my Kindle. 😉

About Jennifer Blackstream

Author - Jennifer Blackstream

Jennifer Blackstream is a USA Today bestselling author of urban fantasy and paranormal romance. She is amazed and grateful to have made a writing career out of a Master’s degree in Psychology, hours of couch-detecting watching Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries, and endless research into mythology and fairy tales. She firmly believes that whether it’s a village witch deciding she wants to be a private investigator, or a single mother having a go at being a full-time writer, it’s never too late for a new adventure.

A fervent devotee of cooperative board games, Jennifer sets aside at least two nights a week for team-based adventures such as Mice & Mystics, Sentinels of the Multiverse, or Harry Potter: Battle at Hogwarts. She uses games with dice-based mechanics to lure in her ridiculously lucky-rolling son and daughter in the hope that they too will develop a passion for cooperative escapism.
