I found myself developing crushes on some of the male characters–heh heh!
Although she wants to breakdown Mary pushes it to the side and continues her plan of escaping with a baby that was brought as a sacrifice to Tepes. The narrative alternates between the four main protagonists and is told through their thoughts, letters and journals.
Reckoning (Bloodline , book 2) by Kate Cary
Mary joins in too, as we are reading his account at the same time as her – as John has come back from blood,ine trenches feverish and she decides it’s a perfectly decent idea to nick his diary and read it. I wish the story had stayed in England and gone in an original direction–the author had done a good job of laying the foundation for a fresh follow-up to the classic story without the need to actively re-visit it.
Mary’s no wilting violet, and she’s far more empowered than Bella Swann, but she’s still a little prudish and idealistic, which is treated as part of her character, and a flaw at that. I was worried but happily surprised. I recommend this to High School teens. People around you will eventually think that you are going insane; that is alright because of how amazing this book is.
It could bloodlinr all of those, if the story were more cohesive.
As a fun read, it’s wonderful, and I hope Cary bloodoine on the third installment! But back to “Bloodline”–absolutely entertaining, great price, and I gobbled it up eagerly.
The horrors of war have overtaken every waking moment. There is a nice plot twist as well. Reckoning was later released.
Character development is pretty shallow, This is a book which continues in the same vein get it? When he kste he finds out hi Personal Response I personally liked this book because it’s set during the WW1 era. It seems now Harker is trying to win over Lily Shaw John’s sister.
As he passes out, he thinks he sees Harker closely inspecting a large gash in an enemy soldier’s throat.
When he is injured in combat he is taken back to London to be brought back to good health. As she nurses him she falls in love but soon comes across his journal where she discovers the full depth of his torment. Once Mary learns of John’s transformation, she asks Rosemary Shaw for help escaping, as Rosemary never liked living as a vampire.

I highly recommend to all who enjoy Gothic literature. One night a soldier named Private Smith falls asleep on his watch, and Germans invade the trench.
As Harker’s relationship with John’s sister Lily deepens, it’s up to John and Mary to save her from a great evil. Would recommend this book. I’ve never read the actual Dracula book but I did find this to be very interesting and kept my interest the entire way through. I’m not a fan of epistolary stories, but this grabbed me from the start with the setting and tone.
