The newest Blood Coven novel-accompanied by edgy repackages of the rest of the series Sunny McDonald is in the ultimate forbidden relationship. Her boyfriend Magnus is a vampire, and the leader of the Blood Coven. And when the Coven decides that Magnus needs a mate to be his co-ruler, Sunny's humanity puts her out of the running. The Coven's chosen candidate is Jane Johnson, a magna cum laude graduate of Oxford University who just happens to look like a vampiric supermodel. Sunny is suspicious of a Rhodes Scholar who can't answer the most basic poli-sci questions, but Magnus brushes it off as petty jealousy.

Because not everything stays in Vegas-especially bad more

Review: I am getting close to the end of the series. Ok halfway through anyways. Another good one is check off my list. This installment takes place in Vegas and is a lot of fun, we have jealousy, surprises, and of course some funny business going on and Sunny and Rayne's life just keeps getting more and more complicated. Long Story Short: Magnus heads to Vegas to a vampire convention (teehee) and his new candidate for co-ruler, Jane, tags along, things get a little complicated. Sunny has a jealous side that she has kept hidden pretty well. Sunny feels there is something strange about Jane. She doesn't seem to be on the up and up and this is cause for some action so she and Rayne decided to take a trip to Vegas to spy, I mean visit their father. In Vegas they get way more than they bargained for as secrets and more secrets are revealed. My Thoughts: I feel like my reviews for this series just keep getting shorter but it seems that there isn't much to say beyond giving the book away that I have not already said in my previous reviews. These book are way fun and I love them. I can't help it. The author's writing style remains steady, the plot keeps thickening, we meet new characters and revisit old ones, and the book ends on a cliffhanger that totally made my draw drop. This installment was a bit slower for me than the rest and I can't really place my finger on why. I love the setting, Vegas is always fun. I loved all the secrets and finding out more about the girls' father. It was crazy to see Sunny in such a fit over Magnus having a co-ruler. It would have made everything easier if Sunny had stayed a vampire, but the complications are what keep the stories interesting. Rayne was up to her mood swings full blast in this book. She didn't like the truth about her father one bit and she was not afraid to show it. She did find ways to occupy her time and to get into a little bit of trouble along the way though. Same old Rayne for sure. I enjoyed the book very much but it did feel like a bit of a build up book for the next installment. This one read a bit on the slow side for me compared to the other books. I definitely see a bigger story brewing and can't wait to find out more. In the End: Of course I loved it and will keep on reading this more

Bad Blood is the 4th book in the Blood Coven Vampire novels by Mari Mancusi. At the end of Girls That Growl, Sunny learns a disturbing bit of information about her vampire boyfriend Magnus, he's been assigned a new blood mate by the council named Jane. Sunny gets a bad vibe from this new Jane person right away and decides she's got to do something to find out what her real story is and save Magnus from making the biggest mistake of his eternal life. Rayne is of course along for this ride but isn't very helpful like Sunny had hoped she'd be. But nevertheless Sunny moves on with her investigation and at the last minute saves the day with just a little help from Rayne in the end. As Sunny goes through this journey she meets a boy in Las Vegas named Jayden who ends up helping her out a lot out of the kindness of his heart and they develop a friendship. More McDonald family secrets get revealed at the end of this book which leave you begging to read more!show more

Sunny McDonald is living an atypical teenage life. Her boyfriend, Magnus, a centuries-old vampire, is Master of one of the most powerful covens in the world. Her twin sister, Rayne, has been transformed into a vampire (by her own choosing), but has somehow managed to retain some of her human qualities, AND is a vampire slayer for Slayer, Inc. And, of course, there is the tiny detail that Sunny and Rayne's parents conveniently left out of their family history (but I'll leave that for you to discover). Sunny's life is certainly not boring. Between saving Magnus from an evil vampire and performing in the Sun Hotel's production of Bram Stoker's Dracula, Sunny doesn't have much time for "normal" teenage activities. That doesn't seem to bother Sunny, though. BAD BLOOD is Buffy the Vampire Slayer meets the members of the HOUSE OF NIGHT. Mancusi's fast prose and witty remarks will have readers glued to the page. Her allusions, ranging from OPI's newest and hottest color to Hot Topic fashion, will appeal to today's hip and with-it teenage population. I'm sure there will be many more stories with Sunny and Rayne at the helm. This is definitely a series with bite!!show more
