22) Blood Ties by Mari Mancusi

The Blurb :

The final battle is brewing between Vampires and Slayers. But for Sunny McDonald, the true war is being fought over her heart.

Though now officially back in the arms of her vampire boyfriend Magnus, Sunny finds she still can't forget the gentle mortal Jayden who once saved her life. And when the darkness threatens to steal his humanity, Sunny finds herself with a choice. Stay true to Magnus and the Blood Coven or defy them in a desperate attempt to save Jayden’s soul.

Meanwhile, the Blood Coven is gearing up for its toughest fight yet--going head to head with a splinter group of Slayer Inc who's regrouping in Tokyo, Japan, still determined to take over the world. In dark blood bars and hidden temples, it'll be Vampires vs. Slayers in a showdown that could cost Sunny not only her heart...but also her very life.

My Review :

The Blood Coven Vampire series is one I have been following for a long time. The first few books in the series were fun and enjoyable with some great characters, twins Sunny and Rayne. However it seems that this series has, for me, come to an end. With this installment making the decision for me. I find myself uninterested in how things continue and actually found Blood Ties quite boring and childish.

Yes this series is aimed at Young Adults but for anyone who has been following the series it is plain to see that the characters are not growing up. Despite everything they have gone through and even though they have been around the block a few times, they still come across as naive children. This story in particular seemed to be an echo of many of the previous books. With nothing new really happening. It feels like the sisters are just chasing their tails.

Mari Mancusi is a superb writer and if she writes anything else I will be sure to check it out. However the Blood Coven series has come to an end for me. I won't be getting any more books in the series and will spend my time reading something more entertaining and exciting than Sunny & Rayne's weird messed up soap opera crazy weird life.
