4.0 out of 5 stars lovely short prequel novella. 6 Sep 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a lovely short novella that is a great backstory for Burden of Blood. It follows the story of a weekend trip spent in Panama city between two lifelong friends. It is full of fun and silliness and really builds up the relationship between the two girls and I feel that having this there really helped to make their characters real within the first novel of the Burden Blood series. It is a nice way to get to grips with Wenona Hulsey's writing while not being full of too much seriousness or confusing moments.

I enjoyed witnessing how Kat and Nicole acted around the guys and how you could almost see Nicole rolling her eyes at her best friends behaviour without having to read it. It was easy to see that these two girls have known each other for years and just knew how to be around each other, even when things took a turn for the worst. It was a nice scenario where Kat wanted to get Nicole away from their small town and away from the misery that was surrounding her best friend there. Little did she know, of course, that this trip would be the start of so many things.

I liked how it was all set together, how it wasn't until about halfway through the novella before more "serious" topics were introduced to the story and the real reason for the novella come to light. I liked Nick and thought it was cute that, despite all that happened he still wanted to get to know Nicole more. I especially enjoyed the little twist towards the end of the novella and felt that it was the perfect opening to the first book. Which, luckily for me I was able to start straight after.

This is a little novella that I would say works well to read before the series, it's a nice addition to the book and I feel like I know exactly what Nicole is referring to in the first book because I read this.

4.0 out of 5 stars Blood Awakening Review 6 Aug 2011
By Jordan Reid - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Blood Awakening is a short story that works as a prelude for Wenona Hulsey's upcoming novel Burden of Blood. The silly banter between Nichole and Kat is hilarious, their friendship is one that you can admire and relate to. There is so much foreshadowing! Between the stranger in the dark, Nicole's dream and the intriguing ending, the story does a fantastic job of building as you go. Did we mention the love interest? For a small vacation crush, the relationship was done tactfully and not pushed too quickly. And who doesn't want to know who the mysterious man lingering in the shadows is? I know I do.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Back Story 15 July 2011
By Christine A. Gomez - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
Blood Awakening is a back story into the beginning of Nichols powers. This short story gives you insight of what is to come for Nichol and Kat in "Burden of Blood" Wenona Hulsey's upcoming debut novel. It was a great short read and I look forward to the release of "Burden of Blood".

4.0 out of 5 stars A taste of things to come... 21 July 2011
By Emme - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
I'm looking forward to the further adventures of Nicole! This short was light-hearted but had some ominous elements, as well-- that's the combination I like in my paranormal romance stories. I'm wondering, though, how this short story fits into the larger one that is coming out in the novel Burden of Blood. Guess I'll have to wait and see!

4.0 out of 5 stars I am intrigued. 2 Dec 2011
By Tiffany A. Harkleroad - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Nicole is still healing from the loss of her mother. When she and her best friend Kat travel from their sleepy Alabama town to Panama City for a short getaway, Nicole encounters a mysterious man. As a result of this encounter, Nicole develops a strange ability. What will this mean for Nicole's future?

This book was a novella prequel to a new paranormal romance series, and I must say, it did an excellent job of pulling me in. Within the short story, we learn a lot about Nicole's character, and because the reader endures the traumatic encounter with Nicole, there is a connection, an interest sparked. I instantly felt like I wanted to see where Nicole's path would lead.

I liked that the story started off a bit light, as the young ladies are looking for some eye candy at the beach. When the story takes a darker turn, I find the timing perfect, and that it is this timing that really helps to hook the reader. I really enjoyed the writer's style, the dialogue seemed believable, and I liked the overall tone of the book.

So far, I am more than a little intrigued about this series, and am excited to read more.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice intro to the series 29 Dec 2011
By Shelf Addiction - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was a pretty nice intro to the series. I think this prelude has done its job because I'm now interested to read the first book. I like Nicole so far. I'm curious to find out what exactly was awakened in her, other than the obvious. She must have more abilities than what we see in this prelude. I can see there will be some kind of relationship wih Nick and her friendship with Kat is fun. Lastly, I've got to find out who the mystery man is who "awakened" her.
