My Review of Scarlet: Taming The Thirst (Shades of Red Book 2) by T.L. Christianson


My Review of Scarlet: Taming The Thirst (Shades of Red Book 2)

WARNING: SPOILER ALERT for CRIMSON and SCARLET This is the second book by T.L. Christanson that I have had the privilege to read. The plus is that this is the second of her series and it was AMAZING!! This book started right after Crimson ended once Emelie was infected by the Vampire Virus and Owen had been changed. We begin with Sarah who is Owens ex wife and she is still suffering from Blood Lust. We get to know who Sarah is and why she had to leave Owen and their children. We are also introduced to Karsten (Viking) who is assigned to watch and teach Sarah how to control and overcome her blood lust. Sarah who is a doctor and is trying to figure out the cure for the virus and gets a clue of where the “mad doctor” is located but she is also summoned to go her old home and old life to examine Emelie who is Owens fiance. Sarah has to face her ex husband moving on and see her children for the first time in many years. At this time Sarah has to face Owen with his new life. Sarah goes through so many emotions that is very heartbreaking and sad but she has Sten right by her side. He seems to be here knight in shining armor. When she feels upset, angry, or broken “Her Viking” is right by her side. I enjoyed this read very much. I don’t want to give anymore spoilers since the ride is great. You as a reader might have a different feeling about Sarah as a person but you will get to see why she made her decisions to leave her life and children. There is many new characters in this book and you will get to experience some tear jerking scenes and you will laugh out loud and maybe even be upset. T.L. Christianson brings each and every character to life. She will make you feel the deepest sadness and regret that some of these characters bring. The only thing I was upset about it was that it ended!! I can’t wait to read the next book in this series. Thank you T.L. for such a wonderful read!

Vampire Elizabeth was looking for a distraction when she took a job on the isolated estate of scientist Dr. Owen Bennett. Expecting him to be an eccentric old man, the Doctor, turns out to be a lot younger and sparks fly. As Liz struggles with her past and a possible future with Owen, she realizes that things around the Bennett compound aren’t quite adding up.
