Blood Relations: What Are You Willing To Give To Live Forever? by Glenn Stevens is a paranormal romance that puts a new spin on love. I am a huge fan of mythology, so the moment I saw the word Eros, I knew I was going to read this book. Imagine my surprise when I realized that Eros is actually an alien in the story! Despite the surprises (all good, trust me), I enjoyed this story a lot. Eros is complicated, his little issue with people and women in particular is complicated, but that makes him even more desirable to me.
This is the story of Eros, a man who took his family away from certain death on his own planet. At the time, he thought he was doing the right thing for everyone, but soon he realizes what has happened. His aircraft is attacked and he lands on a strange planet where he knows no one and knows nothing of this world. Unconscious when the aircraft lands, he wakes up to find himself in the company of strange people and discovers that he has a craving for female blood. He has no idea why and he can’t help it. What will he do when he realizes that he craves the company of the living more than their blood?
What can I say about this novel? It was action packed and filled with little gems that had me thinking and thinking hard. I enjoyed how Eros, an alien, seemed very human with his jumbled thoughts and his complicated life. His relationships were difficult, which was obvious, and his struggle to feel a connection with the people around him gave a palpable indication of his humanity. I thoroughly enjoyed this novel!
