Son of Our Blood (Aaron's Kiss #12) by Kathi S. Barton Book Review

Mac McManus has everything going for him, but he doesn’t see it that way. All he sees is his limitations. Like his father, Aaron, he is a vampire—forced into the darkness and to sustain himself on blood. He hates himself for what he has become and would rather meet the sun than remain immortal as a vampire or drink from another. It’s not anything he wants his family to know about.

He strikes a bargain with his aunt, the Queen, to get what he wants—an end to his suffering. In the bargain he must save a woman, his mate, from another vampire, Zachariah Roberts, a murdering fiend that has been plaguing Mac’s dreams since he turned. But the woman he must save, the one the Queen is making him save has turned out to be more than he bargained for. More than he ever wanted.

Brandi Daniel, Andi to her friends, has been on the run for years. Never staying in any one place long, she has managed to stay just one step ahead of her step-father—a cruel man with a nasty temper. Andi has a talent of her own. She can move things with her mind and her step-father thinks he can sell her to a science lab for a quick buck.

Andi is caught squatting on Bradley Wolf’s land and is given an ultimatum. She can work off the debt or spend a few days in jail. She figures she’ll make a quick buck and leave before her step-father finds her. She has learned to rely only on herself and isn’t bargaining for a gorgeous overbearing vampire, Mac, stepping in and dictating her every move. A man who can and will fulfill her every fantasy and desire...

Mac’s dreams of Zachariah have gotten worse and he knows that Andi is foretold to be one of his victims, but the danged woman won’t stay put. The entire Kiss is banding together to keep Andi safe and it pisses her off in the process. Will an entire Kiss of vampires and an entire pack of werewolves be enough to protect one stubborn human? Has Mac found a new purpose in life? Will either of them live long enough to find out?

My Review

5 of 5 Vampire Kisses

Sons Of Our Blood is book 12 in the Aaron's Kiss series and I have to say that I did not read the previous 11 books but I really enjoyed and dare I say loved this book. I will have to read the previous books to really get up to speed but this book as a stand alone is good. I was able to follow the characters and see what was going on. 

This is Mac's story and what a story it is. Mac is a Vampire just like his father only he does not want to be. What you say... yes you heard me Mac does not want to be a vampire . He does not like the fact that he has to be in the dark and drink blood constantly to survive. He would rather meet the sun then be a vampire. This of course caught my attention and the more I read about Mac the more I could see where he was coming from. But always looking for a way out Mac decides he will talk to his aunt the queen and see if she can help him out. The queen agrees to help him out on one condition. Mac must free and save his mate.

At first Mac is worried because he really does not know anything about this supposed mate he has but the more he finds out about her the more intrigued he is with her. Only thing is his mate Andi is on the run from Zachariah who is a ruthless vampire and wants Andi for himself. As Mac is searching for Andi she manages to get herself into trouble and gets caught trespassing on Bradley Wolf's property. Bradley gives Andi two choices she can either work her transgression off for him or she can go to jail. Andi chooses to work for him instead. Mac finally being able to catch up with Andi wants to help her but he finds she is strong and wants no help from anyone.

What is Mac to do? Can he save Andi? Will the vampire kisses and the werewolves be able to keep Andi safe? Will Andi let Mac in? Will Zachariah finally get what he wants? This is such a must read story that you will not even realize when you are done with the book because it goes by so fast! Happy Reading :)
