Nachari Silivasi is a bright light in a dark world. As the youngest vampire in a family of warriors, he has studied magic for 400 years and acquired a rare mastery of the universe around him. He is beloved by his family, legendary for his good looks, and known for his uncommon valor. Unfortunately, he has just made the ultimate sacrifice - he has traded his immortal life for the life of the Vampyr King.
Deanna Dubois is as talented as she is independent, but she has developed a strange and terrifying habit: night after night, day after day, she sketches one horrifying scene after another - the body of a gorgeous male being tortured in hell by demons. Disturbed by her ever-growing obsession, she sets out to Dark Moon Vale to uncover the truth - only to find a web of danger, destruction, and deceit.
Separated by space and time, yet drawn together by fate, Nachari and Deanna find themselves in an epic battle against evil. Nachari is forced to forge a path in a world of shadows, where torture and lust rule the night; while Deanna struggles to decide between two polar opposites - to flee from the truth or trade her mortal soul for the possibility of a stranger's salvation.
The stakes could not be higher.
The enemy could not be more lethal.
And the only way to reach the light is to, first, enter the Blood Shadows.

There are no listener reviews for this title yet.
While nothing can replace print for me I did find this audible to add to my listening pleasure I can hear all the characters come to life and Nachari's story HAS to be listened too!
The emotion got to me most in this story, the rawness and breath taking and overwhelming beauty of this story
I believe Deanna's first visions of Nachari got to me from the very beginning and her inability to "forget" him.
Marquis, he is by far my favorite character and the quintessential vampire for me
I simply adore this entire series, I can't get enough, each book whether paper or audible continues to draw me in and keep me rivited.
"My heart almost shattered"
As awful as this may sound, hearing Nachari's suffering. I find myself liking (and disliking) characters more.
Nachari rocking his wizard skills to bird style it to Dark Moon Vale. Nothing will keep that man from his destiny.
Oh goodness, do I have to choose? Keagan probably.
Heart renching, soul grabbing, roller coaster ride topped with smoking hot vampires.
I look forward to more from Tessa Dawn and Eric G. Dove.
"Amazing from the first word to the last"
In a hot minute! This installment is captivating, the way the story spans dimensions is so incredible I was left speechless a few times. There was not one thing I could fault in this story. Yes, it's definitely dark and not a fairytale by any means however, it is beautifully written, captivating in every way and I will listen to it over and over.
Wow, well it is so hard to pick just one because of how complex this story is and there are many moments that just jump off the page. If I need to choose one that sticks with me a little more than others, it's when Nachari wills himself to breech the confines of his imprisonment to go to his Destiny in her time of need. That scene was so moving and powerful!!!
The man is a genius when it comes to voices and personalities, the way each character is unique and definable, Eric gives the book additional layers that really add to the story. And let's just mention that the man can sing!!!! What an amazing rendition, again, just brings a whole other level of enjoyment .
Nachari, no hesitation. He has lived in hell, he can shape shift and he's Nachari! To be able to sit and not just look at the green eyed Wizard but, to be able to talk to him about some of his experiences, and his cars!!! He is such a great character. Kind and patient (learning to be lol) self assured and brilliant. It would be fascinating.
As with the other installments of the Blood Curse Series, anyone who enjoys dark fantasy will not be disappointed. Tessa Dawn is a brilliant author, her ability to engage you right away and just hold you in the story is amazing. Eric compliments the story with his gift of narration. Worth buying!
"OMG! What a read!"
Love the part when Eric sings. Such a wonderful voice.
I love the entire book but the ending is surprising, even after reading the book.
This was such an amazing book. I get so sad when it announces the epilog. I didn't want the story to end. I can't wait for the next audible to come out. Tessa does such an amazing job.such a great story and amazing characters. Eric does a wonderful job bringing the characters to life. must read book and a must to listen to.
"One of the best"
Blood Shadows is one of the best books of the series shows. the more darker side, of things but still keeps you connected to family love and support this book is truly worth reading and like always Eric Dove brings it to life in the minds eye
"OFF THE CHAINNNNN !!!!! :-O"
This was OUTRAGES!!! OMG This book kept me on the edge of my seat from beginning to end. So visual, so intense wooooo! This was by far the best, Ok I know i said that about all the Blood series books.... but it just keeps getting better! Holly Molly is all I can say. And Christina had me laughing so had I was crying. And BRADEN.... LMAO!! Woooo I cant wait for his book.
"Another great book in the series"
Wow. This saga keeps getting better and better. This book really brought a good story to life.
"Intense & Deep Story of Sacrifice and Survival"
Most definitely! It is so deep and unique and incredible. Tessa really took the listener to another level, literally, and gives you an amazing story.
I loved seeing Nachari escape his torture and rise to triumph! The whole situation was so unexpected and so terrifying and so intense. But seeing him fight his way back was awesome!
Nachari,of course. He is so amazing a character and Eric performed him quite well.
Nachari, because he is so strong, smart, creative, and magical all around.
Excellent story that keeps you hooked, keeps your emotions on edge, keeps you guessing and gives you the unexpected. Great job Tessa!
"Best Yet - and drooling for more!!!"
Absolutely - I've always loved Unchained Melody - but this was the first time I got shivers down my spine hearing it!! What a great story!! And Eric G. Dove again delivered the stellar performance I've come to know from him!
Marquis is still the standout for me. Everyone knows that beneath his ruff gruff exterior lies a heart of gold and a an iron protectiveness of those he calls his own. Maybe because he reminds me much of my own HEA - but he continues to command my attention and allegiance in any scene he's in and I find myself waiting/second guessing to see his reaction to any given situation.
It's a toss up between a 'broken' radio - and an extended dream with a gratifying end. Both speak to the connection between two souls that far exceeded the one between the two minds.
yes - but regretfully life prohibits that! I get a cupla hours a day at best while driving to work - maybe more on weekends.
Eric G. Dove also does another popular vampire series - which also has a special place in my heart - so when i realized he was this series I knew it was going to be a phenomenal read! And he did not disappoint!!! AND - he can sing! Who knew!?!
With that, I saw on Tessa Dawns website that she expects the rest of the audiobooks to be released by the end of 2015 - Couldn't be fast enough for me!!
each story gets better and better. what a fantastical story and remarkable story developments. can't wait for the next one...and listening to Eric Dove's narration.
