Quincie P. Morris, teen restaurateuse and neophyte vampire, is in the fight of her life -- or undeath. Even as she adjusts to her new appetites, she must clear her best friend and true love, the hybrid werewolf Kieren, of murder charges; thwart the apocalyptic ambitions of Bradley Sanguini, the seductive vampire-chef who "blessed" her; and keep her dead parents’ restaurant up and running. She hires a more homespun chef and adds the preternaturally beautiful Zachary to her wait staff. But with hundreds of new vampires on the rise and Bradley off assuming the powers of Dracula Prime, Zachary soon reveals his true nature -- and a flaming sword -- and they hit the road to staunch the bloodshed before it’s too late. Even if they save the world, will there be time left to salvage Quincie’s soul?

    " She saved the best for last.... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Natasha Chapin | 2/18/2014

    " I do love this series it's just very detailed making it a very long and tedious read. However the plot is wonderful and the characters charismatic and lovable. Even the villain has qualities I find interesting and romantic in his own twisted and dark way. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shari | 2/16/2014

    " My favorite of the series. I liked it a lot. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cory Oakes | 2/9/2014

    " Loved it!! I preordered Diabolical (due out Jan 24, 2012) about 5 seconds after I finished Blessed, and I can't wait to see what happens next! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Maria | 2/6/2014

    " i read and i didnt know that there was a book after it and there is and i really want to read it!!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elsa | 2/2/2014

    " I read the first one of the trilogy and thought it was ok. This one is ok also (I'm not really moved one way or the other) and it doesn't matter that I didn't read the middle volume. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brianna | 1/17/2014

    " it was pretty good. it's more of a sequel to the first tanlize novel in the trilogy, but Zachary, Nora and Freddy from Eternal does make an appearance in the novel and stays. I am sooo glad that Quince got her happy ending. Another well done novel. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sharon | 1/9/2014

    " Pretty good as YA goes. I should probably have read the first books in the series before this one, it would probably have made more sense that way. I felt a little up in the air with the characters, as though I should already have known them. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Louisa | 11/21/2013

    " Oh, it was great to see Quincey again! And to have the characters of the 2 books come together for the first time, linking the worlds even more! Great book, and plot, and my favourite of the 3 that I've read! Maybe the 4th will top this one, even with fewer pages! Maybe! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Presley | 11/18/2013

    " i had to stop reading... i couldn't get into it and i no longer have it:( "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jennifer | 11/13/2013

    " Love! Great mix of the first two books! I can't wait to read the next one! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rhiannan G | 9/22/2013

    " I LOVED this book! After Tantalize, I was a little hesitant to continue reading the series, but I really enjoyed reading this book. I really liked how Eternals tied into Blessed; in my opinion it was done well. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Somer | 8/26/2013

    " This is the second book after tantalize...not third ?? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mrsinserra | 2/22/2013

    " I really enjoyed this book and I can't wait until the next in the series. There is no sex in this book but Kieran and Qunicey do have some rather close moments alone together. Nothing terrible but some very heavy make out sessions. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Meghan | 10/9/2012

    " I really liked this one too :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy Louise | 6/25/2012

    " Brilliant! Great how the first 2 books came together in this one and all the characters - made a great story. Looking forward to the next. :D "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Anya | 5/29/2012

    " I just saw stacks of books from this series on display at our local bookstore and my first thought? Pity on those who are unfortunate enough to be blinded with the pretty display and actually fell for the money trap, 2nd thought poor poor trees... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Terri-Maree | 4/28/2012

    " Very clever how this book ties the first two books together, and the intertextuality is fantastic. I cannot wait to read more by Cynthia Leitich Smith! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Melissa Lavergne | 4/2/2012

    " loved it it really rapped everything up i hope the next one is just as good :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Samantha | 1/16/2012

    " Much better than the first 2. She did a nice job of meshing the stories. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nikki | 7/12/2011

    " I really liked this book I loved all the references it had to Dracula. I loved the story of Quince and Kieran and how Angel Zachary played out in the whole story I would diffently refer this to people who have a taste of Vampires mixed in with werewolves and Angels! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Renee | 4/25/2011

    " "SAVE the baby squirrel eaters"- LOVE this phrase and seriously want this on a tee-shirt.
    Loved the tie-ins/ homage to Stoker's Dracula.
    Loved the Austin, TX setting.
    Loved the thoughtful introspection of the characters. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Crystal | 7/31/2009

    " Maybe I was in a funk, but it was really hard to finish this book. In fact I skimmed it. This series seems to be going down with each book. :( "
