Jocelyn "Jesse" Banks is a good girl who works hard. All she wants is to meet a nice guy. She resorts to the internet; there she meets a guy named Drake. Upon their first meeting she finds him attractive yet a little odd. After a couple of dates she realizes there is something off about him. About this time she is noticing the guy down the hall of her apartment building named Sam. It turns out sometimes what you are looking for is right under your nose. But Drake doesn’t like the attention Jesse is bestowing on Sam, for Jesse will be his to own. And Drake will let nothing stand in the way of what he wants.
Mr. Knight has done a good job of bringing an old legend to a new light. I found the character of Jesse to be an everyday person introduced to a world of dark danger and blood. I enjoyed the different characters and how each one got their own time, giving us the chance to invest in the characters. It ws great to follow Jesse and her struggle to figure out what is going on and to seeing that there is more to Sam then she thought. Sam has always had a crush on Jesse and is finally getting his chance to prove himself to her. Drake starts out kind of likable but then turns into someone who is more cunning and brutal than we thought. Charles has always been by Drake and helps him "dispose" of issues. I really enjoyed his POV on things and his relationship with Reba. Reba was supposed to be a toy and ends up a beloved. There are so many twists and turns to Born of Blood. You will not be bored! I cannot wait to see what happens next!
