    1. The vampire genre has always been a favourite and Ms Lacoba's BLOODGIFTED did not disappoint, I was hooked from the epilogue. ancient curse, to present day Sydney (yay Australia gets a vampire story) This book has wonderful characters that come to life, a complex and detailed storyline with a mixture of fact, fiction, history, romance, fantasy and humour that kept me captivated, I did not want to put it down I especially liked the short chapters that took turns telling the story from different p [...]

    2. This book is an exceptional read that is beyond the normal vampire read. I'm partial to this genre and it's hard to find that will not give the same pattern you see in the average vampire read. Laura Dantonville is an exceptional woman about to turn fifty. At her birthday party she discovers her true self and the secret of her youthfulness. Revelations abound and by the end of the day everything she new to be true is in fact a lie. Her life begins a roller coaster of adventure!Alec is the vampir [...]

    3. Review can also be found on my blog.Oh boy. I disliked this book so strongly. I downloaded the ‘preview’ from , and man the prologue was amazing. It was so well written, and interesting that I am just shocked and appalled by the rest of the book. It quickly went downhill, pretty much about the time that Laura and Alec met and pretty much fell in instalove with each other. I had quite a lot of problems with this book, that I will be discussing, but I want to start with Laura. In the first few [...]

    6. I've read the first few chapters on your Bloodgifted blog and I loved it. Being a Sydney girl, I loved reading about a story that happens in places I live near. It has hooked me and I can't wait to read the rest of it! What a refreshing take on the genre.

    7. The first three chapters, which are available on the writer's blog, are very well written. I cannot wait until the book is released in August.

    8. What an interesting read! There are twists and turns you don't expect and more! You will devour this book in all one sitting!Laura has been dating a man a few months.

    9. A deftly woven tale of myth, legend, action, and romance.Bloodgifted starts out with a prologue that takes us back to 263 AD when the battle between two warring parties, the Pictish and the Romans, culminates in a curse, thus creating the first vampires and the bloodgifted.Author Tima Maria Lacoba spins an exciting tale of romance and intrigue as her heroine, Laura, comes into her bloodgift and the vampire race grapples at a chance to shift the power.

    10. This book is amazing moves at a good place with wonderful characters who come to life on the pages. I was completely hooked from page 1 and can't wait for the next book in the series to be released. As a fan of Twilight and Vampire Academy this book easily is a match in both plot and characters. Highly recommended.

    11. Enjoyed reading this book. Love the concept, characters and the fact that it is set in my city! The vampire genre has finally got a story set in Sydney, with plenty of recognisable landmarks and new beginnings. Really looking forward to the next instalment, so please keep writing Tima!

    12. This novel was brilliantly easy to read. The initial chapter set in Roman times was a greatly different kickstart and truly began to set up for a very complicated and detailed storyline. Although this book was massively long (the length of two maybe, according to my kindle) I just could not put it down. The writing style was fabulous and hooked me in from the beginning and I loved the difference in Laura’s chapters to Alec’s chapters. It really showed the difference in their chronological ag [...]

    13. I was hooked on Tima Maria Lacoba's Bloodgifted from the outset with its excellent historical prologue.A refreshingly different take on Vampires, this book brimmed with action, adventure and romance, making it an exciting and entertaining read.I couldn't turn the pages fast enough, I was so invested in the lives of Laura and Alec. Having read an excerpt from Bloodpledge,the continuation of The Dantonville Legacy, I am looking forward to reading the next in the series from this very talented Aust [...]

    14. I Absolutely loved this story. I was captivated from the start. It was nice to read a vampire novel not set in Europe or America for a change-Yay Australia! The character development was strong. The story line intriguing. Attention to detail is so important, good job on that. It flowed pretty well. I could visualize the story like a movie, which kept me thoroughly engaged. I couldn't wait to get back to it and finished it pretty quickly. Ms. Lacoba is a gifted writer. She knocked this out the pa [...]

    15. The first book in this paranormal romance series by debut author Tima Maria Lacoba is well written and puts a unique slant on the traditional vampire novel. I really enjoyed the ancient curse, which hooked me in from the very beginning. I find it a pleasant change to see a vampire novel set in my own backyard - Sydney, Australia, thus making Laura's blood highly prized amongst vampires. It would appear that in an effort to lift the curse, the future for both Laura and Alec could become very inte [...]

    16. Loved this book. Australian vampires for once. The characters unfold beautifully & are easy to identify with. Set in and around Sydney, with a lot of history, just as good if not better than the other vampire saga's about, looking forward to book number 2

    17. Laura's life isn't exactly normal. Though she's 50 years old, she's barely aged a day since her early twenties.

    19. Sexual Quotient: Pretty safe for the unsuspecting commuter with a nice bit of slap and tickle for good measure.Soundtrack: Torn youtu/SgNvWfCMMh0Kindle Unlimited series I truly enjoyed this one which manages to create an original vampire tale.This first novel sets the mood, filling out the character for our lady of the hour who, surprise surprise, carries her unusual genetic condition in the innocuous form as a school teacher. What appears to be missing in this persona is how this is going to be [...]

    21. Tima Maria Lacoba is on tour now with CLP Blog Tours and BloodgiftedI don’t often read this genre – preferring chick lit or women’s fiction – but reading this book made me wonder why I don’t add more to my pile. It is fascinating to me to be able to read someone’s imagination. To see what a different world looks like to them, to watch them create characters and storylines and the smallest, intricate details and mesh them together to create such an enticing plot. I was hooked from the [...]

    22. It was good even had me laughing out loud several times! Laura was easy to relate to, and she surprised me by acting more like a woman in her mid 30's than being 50! I got how she was confused by everything , I mean her world was upturned over a period of a weekend basically! I didn't really understand her relationship with Matt, I mean I got their was a mutual attraction but past that he seemed more about controlling and possessing her then anything else!Alec was just a dream guy but one that r [...]

    23. Laura has never aged like everyone else, and on her 50th birthday her aunt reveals why. I don't want to spoil anything, but there's a curse in her family and she's their first chance of lifting it since it was cast. Doing that is simple; all she needs to do is have a child with her vampire protector whom she has only just met. Her human boyfriend isn't too impressed when she fills him in. So, as you can see, there's a lot of conflict right there!"It's dangerous to tempt evil, Laura, and I don't [...]

    24. Bloodgifted tells the story of Laura and Alec. Laura Dantonville is a simple primary school teacher, but she has a rare genetic mutation. This mutation is linked to a family secret that propels her into a dark underworld with her true family. Alec Munro is a vampire but he’s also Laura’s guardian. He doesn’t want to be, but his sire Lucien Lebrettan has promised the end of his servitude if he’ll take on the job. It’s not only his job to protect Laura but Lucien wants Alec to father a c [...]

    25. Covers always get me when I am looking into reading new books. I could tell right away this book would be paranormal, but the whole snake ring thing on the front threw me off. However it plays a great big part in this story. Just my little tidbit about the cover.I liked the blurb for this story and knew it would be a good read for me. The reason to be that I didn't give it a full 5/5 stars is it started off very slow, at least to me. It took me a bit to get into the story. There was a line that [...]

    26. Vampires are in my self-proclaimed category of “horribly cool,” especially when they are more humanistic in nature than evil. Ms. Lacoba has done a fabulous job of portraying the goodness and earnestness of vampires. Of course she made sure the reader saw just how evil they could be, too.The love story between Laura and Alec turned out to be highly enjoyable. Resistance and tension between the two evolved into acceptance and love. Their passion took on a life of its own.One thing I didn’t [...]

    27. Aren't birthdays supposed to be joyful and filled with fun? How about learning your history and what's next in line for you? Yeah, that's a mouthful for Laura. She's already 'cursed' and no one else seems to understand the difficulty of it. So now add a few more things on top of thatd there you go.Bloodgifted is a fast paced read filled with excellent world building that had me intrigued from the start. I loved the characters, the plot and the pace of this story, it definitely kept me turning th [...]

    28. A very enjoyable read and an original take on a vampire story. It put me in mind of Lynsay Sands in the way that humans unknowingly interact with each vamps.At first I thought the pace was a little slow but believe me when the pace picks up it gallops along in this action packed debut novel. Laura Dantonville has her world turned on it's head when she discovers her family secrets and finds out her precious blood can shape the future of the vampires she never knew existed. Alec is given the role [...]

    29. I love vampire books but lately they all seem to be so similar. This one is very different and being set in Australia made a great read even better. This nook has a beautiful cover. The author did an amazing job on her debut novel. The characters are compelling grabbing your attention from page one. I will be reading the next one in this series. I'll also, be on the lookout for anything by this author. Great work!!! I absolutely LOVED it!!!

    30. I have received this book in exchange of an honest review.I’m not always a big fan of stories about vampires but I did enjoy this book. It is very well-written and creative.I think the author did a great job with the characters, who are complex and interesting, and with the development of the plot. If you like romance, vampires, action and much more I think you will enjoy this book.
