Nothing could have prepared Eve for
what she has become. At the hands of the most powerful
vampire in the world, Adam Omega, she is now that which she
detests. A vampire, the first one made in hundreds of years
and the wife to a being that canít stand her touch. Letting
her anger be her guiding force, Eve proves to Adam sheís no
longer a weak mortal who will fall back in fear of him. Now
she has the strength of the undead and her magical essence
to protect herself. An old alley becomes more when Sullivan,
the vampire she conspired with against Adam turns into her
confidant and lover.
Adam did not make it a thousand year by
being weak. His inability to be with Eve tortures him to the
depths of his soul but his long standing practice of not
bedding vampire women stands in his way of showing Eve how
much he loves her. His guilt allows him to give Eve a leeway
until her time with his old friend turned foe twists into
something he wonítí stand for. Eve is his wife and he will
prove to her, and her lover, that she will never be free of
him or his love.
Not even death will come to claim what
is his and Adam will demonstrate once again that his will is
stronger than Eveís desire to leave him.
Iím sitting here trying to decide how
best to review a story I will admit continues to fascinate
and engage me even though I canít stand the male lead. Adam
Omega, Eve and Sullivan make for an interesting love
triangle, which turns into exhibitions of power, anger and
love. In Blood We Trust continues the story of
Adam and Eve, and their tumultuous relationship that seems
built on pain more than the death defying love they share.
Adam continues to exert his will on Eve and she continues to
rebel but this time sheís stronger and wiser. The new Eve is
powerful and has wants and desires and she isnít willing to
set aside, mourning a Vampire who canít stand her touch.
Adding Sullivan to the mix in the role as Eveís lover was
pure genius and took this series to an entirely new level. I
will admit I enjoy Eve and love Sullivan and I found myself
on more than one occasion just wishing Adam would disappear
and leave these two in peace. Then I remembered Adam, was
the macho, ďI will kill you firstĒ and wonder why later male
leads make In Blood We Trust hard to put
down. Who needs a bathroom break when you have a vampire so
enraged heís creating natural disasters all over the world
with the force of his anger? I commend F.D. Davis for
continuing with a series that is by far one the most
entertaining vampire series Iíve read in a long time and for
that I Joyfully Recommend In Blood We Trust as
a Recommended Read for February.
