New Review and Author Interview - T. Lynne Tolles, Author of Deadman's Blood

I was thrilled to see this book pick up where “Bloodstone Heart” left off.  The characters were so engaging and it’s nice to see a continuation of their saga. Josh has been accepted by the family and every thing seems to be going so well for the Larsens after all the turmoil when Dominic finds a mysterious prophesy.  Soon things are going horribly wrong with the death of Josh’s adoptive parents, Bernard suddenly missing and so many other calamities.  Time is running out to find out who the Dark Angel is before it’s too late.

This book does a wonderful job of not only merging the other stories into the final saga but also being new excitement to the “Blood” series.  This was truly enjoyable story full of twists and turns but also full of love and romance as well as betrayal.  Ms. Tolles has done an excellent job in crafting a wonderful paranormal tale.  Deadman’s Blood serves as a great and fitting end to a great series! I do look forward to more from this dynamic author!  

As always, Release Notes is thrilled to have a few words from the author.  This is the 2nd interview with T. Lynne Tolles and her words are still as insightful as ever.  If you are interested in the earlier interview for Bloodstone Heart, just click here. But for now, here is the latest from Ms. Tolles:

What interested you most about writing?

The same thing that makes reading intriguing…losing yourself inside another world. The only difference is that I writing it, not reading it.

Tell us a little about your main characters.
How did you come up with the storyline for Deadman’s Blood?

The storyline had been brewing in my head for a few books. I often get ideas for the next book from the previous books.
In Deadman’s Blood, all of the friends and family we’ve met along the way (through the series) are here to help the Larsen’s. Darby and Devon are still pretty prominent, but Josh, Anton and Dominic play huge roles in the last book. Can’t tell you why, you’ll just have to read it!

Who is your favorite character in your story? Why? 

I really like them all for different reasons.

Do you like happy endings or open endings?  

I guess I like both.  My books always have a happy ending and they always wrap up the particulars of the story line for that book, but I do like to leave it with a cliff hanger. 

Tell us a random fact about yourself.

I love scallops but am allergic to them.

Do you have any hobbies?

Sewing, Knitting, Cross Stitch and computer games. 

Are there any projects you working on?

Just started a new book for NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) based on a witch and a hellhound pup she finds and raises.

Where can readers purchase your book? 

Pretty much anywhere. Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Smashwords, All Romance, etc.

Where can readers connect with you on the web? 

I’m always on the computer but I go to facebook several times a day, and I can always be reached through my website (
