Product Description

Product Description

After years of negotiations, the vampires and humans finally came to an agreement on how they could co-exist. There was only peace for a short time as the vampire race began to run low on their agreed upon food supply and started feeding on those who were considered off limits.

With many of their own disappearing, the human leaders tasked Stanley Falcon to develop a special substance that once injected into the bloodstream of the humans, made them tainted in the eyes of the vampires. The human leaders saw this as an opportunity to profit and priced the shot astronomically high.

Their efforts to starve the vampire nation created absolute chaos all across the globe. This brought Armand Vallini, the head of the vampire nation, to gather his forces and survive by any means necessary.

The unlikeliest of heroes to be called to arms was Chase Falcon, the son of Stanley Falcon, who had a personal score to settle with Armand Vallini.

With constant deception, double-dealing, and brutality, this trilogy will make you question which race is more inhumane and will intrigue you with the complexity of the characters.
You won’t want to miss this. ***** WINNER of the Young Adult & Teen Readers (YATR) Literary Awards for Best Horror Book of 2013!!! *****

HASH(0xa34e61bc) out of 5 stars A Vampire story to beat all Vampire stories!! June 30 2013
By JacqueB63 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This in not a love story, it's Vampires at their best and I mean best!!!! You want love stories, go read about Sookie. This is pure carnal lust for blood and the humans and the vampires are at war. Who's going to win? Who will end of the master of the Vampires. It's not for weak at heart and this kept me reading into the night. Scared the crap out of me, but totally worth it. I can only compare this to Bram Stoker's Dracula. It's about a group of Vampires fighting to keep their lives, or unlives. And I can relate to them and found myself hopeing they would win this battle. You have to read it and decide for yourself if they are worthy to stay in our world. I myself, would love to be a vampire. I would never grow old and I'd be beautiful all my life. I'm all for that!!! So, I drink some blood. Big deal. I've learned that being super human and having been on this earth for centuries gives you knowledge. And a whole lot of power. I LOVE POWER!!! Characters and story were off the charts and I hope this book is read my many!!! It deserves that much attention and please read this book. You won't regret it!!! Amazing story and one of the best I've read in a long, long time. Jacque B

HASH(0xa34e6408) out of 5 stars Great Job! July 2 2013
By Cynthia Williams - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I received this book as a gift from the author in exchange of an honest review, thank you so much Joseph! This is the author's second book, and wow another job well done! If you like vampires leaving you at the edge of your seat this is the book for you. It's fast paced but very well written, and it'll leave you wanting more. Joseph is definitely an author on the rise, and I can't wait for the next installment on the Battle for Blood series.

There is nothing better than reading a fast paced book that is well written and has great characters. Joseph is definitely an author to watch out for. He draws you into the story and leaves you wanting more. I fiercely enjoyed this book and would recommend it to everyone. I could barely put it down and only did when my children demanded I do so. I can't wait to read what he comes up with next.

HASH(0xa34e67ec) out of 5 stars Awesome book July 4 2013
By Mindyg123 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This book was given to me by the author for an honest review. This book is very well written and the characters pop off the page. It is about a world where the vampires and humans try to co-exist but as their food supply starts to run low the begin to feed on the off limits supply. The humans come up with a way to protect themselves which causes the "king" of the vampires to declare a war. This book has a cliff hanger and I can't wait for book two.

HASH(0xa34e6bb8) out of 5 stars Nothing New July 18 2013

After years of negotiations, the vampires and humans finally came to an agreement on how they could co-exist. There was only peace for a short time as the vampire race began to run low on their agreed upon food supply and started feeding on those who were considered off limits.

I did not hate this read, but I did not like it either. It was slow, the dialogue was boring, the characters were boring and there was no originality. There were silly lines such as she was "a tall drink of water"...cheezy. It just did not grab my interest at any time.

The characters need more personality, and better back stories. The hero is self centered and not too bright. The writing style is more Junior high school. This is just my opinion and you can disregardEssence (Battle for Blood) it of course.
