Blood Revolution Spoiler

If you haven't read Blood Revolution yet, you may want to hold off reading this post until you do. I considered including this in the book and then didn't, as I wanted this information to be revealed at a later time.

As indicated, this is written from Hank's POV. I may write more from his perspective--we'll see :)


Hank's Journal

I'd already pulled information from Breanne's mind with the kiss, and so much of it shocked me, made me feel protective and amazed me, too.
Yes, I'd thought she was only the Vhanaraszh. How wrong I'd been. All of it was there to see. I held the Mighty Heart in my hands. She loved me. That simple fact settled into my mind and tightened my chest.
What I was demanded that I claim her. Make her mine. To hell with that. To hell with High Demon etiquette, protocol and tradition. There was no way I'd do that to Breanne. I was about to change High Demon tradition with a sweep of power, and it was to protect my Love.
"I won't hurt you," I whispered to Breanne. She'd fainted from the kiss, when I began pulling information from her. Now, I placed a healing sleep—for the second time that day.
Then, changing to my smaller Thifilathi, I gently turned her body over and sank my canines into her neck, surrounding her spine as carefully as I could. I never wanted her to feel this pain. To know that from me.
Slowly—so slowly—I removed my teeth and sealed the wounds with a kiss before healing them. From this point forward, I would decree that any claiming of a mate by a High Demon would be initiated by a kiss, which would place his mate in an anesthetized sleep. Then, he would carefully sink his teeth into her neck, and heal the wounds after with his saliva and another kiss. It was right, proper and should have been done in the beginning.
Kifirin might be incensed at the change, but if he wished to fight me, I would accept the challenge happily.

"I love you, too," I whispered after turning Breanne over again to face me. Leaning in, I placed kisses on both eyelids. "So much," I added.

  1. Love it! I was really not liking Hank at all but this little insight helps me feel a little better toward his character.

  2. This was exactly how this played out in my head when reading Blood Revolution. Weird, but I LOVE IT! Your characters are so engrained in my brain that I am starting to think like them!

    I am so glad that Hank is one of the good guys. SO GLAD.

    I hope that Kifirin doesn't end up being a bad guy, tho. Care to give us any hints on the Kifirin front?

  3. That is actually good news, because it means that I will eventually find out! I'm always unsure of what is okay to ask! Sorry!

    I'm in San Francisco for the weekend. What would Breanne recommend that I make sure I see? :)

    1. Have you been to SF before? She likes the Marin Headlands, because you don't get caught up with as many tourists as you do on the opposite side :) Also, she'd recommend Eduardo's, a small cafe in San Rafael. It doesn't look like much on the outside, but the soups, salads, sandwiches and homemade bread are exceptional. (I think I could eat half a loaf of the bread by itself, lol!) Great place for lunch across the bay :) Bree has been downtown (traffic is terrible) to Alcatraz, a dinner cruise on the bay might be nice, Coit tower, Lombard street, etc. etc. She thinks it's fun just walking around and checking out the atmosphere!

  4. This is my first time, but I am working here for a few months, so I want to make the most of it.

    Thanks so much for taking time to give a detailed answer! :) I especially appreciate the lunch recommendation!

  6. Me thinks you enjoy gordian plot twists entirely too much ... lol.

    I have to say this fits well but brings up even more questions, although one would hope Kifirin loves Lissa enough to not commit suicide by Hank >=)

  7. Hank is able to read Breannes mind without her knowing it?
    Arent the Mighty Three directly below the top in the hierachy?

    1. Yes and yes, but there are extenuating circumstances.
      1. Hank is Ko'Ahmari and powerful in his own right
      2. Hank is Breanne's mate and is afforded a few "perks" that others will never get
      3. Breanne was unconscious
      4. Reading her like that required a great deal of power and intimate contact (a kiss--Hank was reluctant to kiss her before because he knew he could get that information)
      5. Breanne hasn't learned to shield herself from that sort of thing

      hope that helps--
      Happy Tuesday!

  8. This is great but I was wondering if the next book is coming out in mid September, early September of if you don't know yet.

    1. September 15th is currently the target date (per Connie's Facebook posts). Earlier is a possibility.

      Personally I am willing to wait for her to finish it in her own time ... I'd rather have it right than fast ... /shrug. =) (This is a personal opinion not a slight ... it's tough to convey that through writing ... /sigh.)

  9. Connie thank you for all those little bits of information... I very much like them, some authors don't do this for us and I usually get angry because of the absence of information in all their books... anyway I am very happy with everything you've written, and am eagerly awaiting the next book:D;)

  11. This is totally unrelated, I was on your website looking on ashes fam. Tree and I was wondering is Harriet apart of a new book. Any more books from you is most welcome. Thanks for all the awesome reads.
