Blood Relations

A bloodthirsty and ageless alien named Eros finds himself on Earth. On his arrival, the beauty and compassion of humans make him fall in love with them. After meeting Camellia, the love of his life whom he cured of an illness, he is inspired to find a way to extend the lives of others. Eros’s venom possesses special qualities that can treat diseases, heal injuries, and cause people to fall in love. Throughout his endless existence, Eros fell in love many times, but Camellia was the one who stood out the most. Eros was not perfect; he always had a strong urge to bite women and suck their blood as his way of feeding. He had no control over it and was often referred to as a vampire.

Eros is a fascinating character and I found his abnormal actions to be intriguing. He was cold-blooded and could not stay out in the sun like a vampire, but the author imbues him with enough of a unique quality for the story to feel refreshing. Camellia is a loyal lover and the way she was completely devoted to Eros is admirable. The supporting characters are all well-rounded and have recognizable qualities that make them relatable. For example, Linda and Christine have different personalities although they work together. It seems all the women Eros meets are bound to fall for him. The author does a fantastic job of combining science fiction, fantasy, and romance into a riveting story that will feel like it can go in any direction. From Eros’s strange venom to his laboratory work, and crazy love fantasies, the story was engrossing.

The writing style of author Glenn Stevens is easy to follow, ensuring readers are always immersed in the story. The book is well written but I would have enjoyed it more if the story was a bit shorter. I would recommend Blood Relations to fans of science fiction, fantasy, and romance. The story is thrilling and captivating, and you will be glued to the pages until the end.
