Reviewette – “Blood Song” by Lynda Hilburn

Anthology: The Mammoth Book of Paranormal Romance
Story: 18 of 24
Pages: 22
Romance Featured: Vampire
Opening Line: “Are you sure you should walk home alone, Grace?”

Blood Song introduces us to Grace, a musician/singer with the ability to heal using the power of music, Grace is attacked by a feral vampire on her walk home but rescued by the vampire Ethan who develops a fascination for the beautiful and intriguing Grace. Ethan leaves Grace at her home with her memories of the event suppressed.

Ethan begins to rediscover lost facets of his humanity the more he thinks about Grace, seeking her out and trying to understand the changes and feelings he is experiencing. Graces character and ability is fascinating and the nature of the “blood song” and its’ effects original. I have s soft spot for stories with musical themes and I quite liked this too brief story. I wanted to see more of their romance.
