Review: Dissension by Adrienne Monson


Leisha used to be a loving mother with a perfect family, but that was more than 2,000 years ago. Though she holds the memory of that time dear to her heart, she must now focus on trying to escape the eternal and bloody war between her kind—the Vampires—and the Immortals, an undying race sworn to destroy her people. Leisha soon finds herself captured by the government, only to be saved by a young and mysterious human girl. What follows is the beginning of a long and tortuous journey as Leisha and her newfound friend run for their lives while searching for the one thing that can bring an end to the conflict—the prophecy child.



Adrienne Monson has always had a voracious appetite for books. When she became a stay at home mom, she finally listened to her muse and began writing. 

She enjoys Zumba, kickboxing and weightlifting. She also loves delicious foods, which is why she has to work out so often.

Dissension and Defiance is available where books are sold. Deliverance, the final installment of the Blood Inheritance trilogy is slated for release April 2016.


I have been in a horrible book slump this fall/winter, so I am thankful to Dissension for being another book to bring me out of it! I have not read many books where there were Immortals, so I found this really interesting. Of course, I was familiar with Vampires! There is a lot going on in this book, and at times you will feel empathy for the "bad guys", I know I did. You will definitely want to have time to sit and read this book as it is very hard to put down, and once I got to 80% there was definitely no stopping until the very end. Not to spoil anything, but there is a great twist at the end, that I didn't even guess. I love when an author has the ability to fool me! 

I loved all the characters from the strong and somewhat stubborn Leisha to Samantha, who all the characters pretty much love in the story as well! One of my favorite characters was Nik, and I hope to find out more about him. Ptah was one of the scariest vampires I have read about and his lover Annette wasn't exactly sweet either. Then I also found myself liking some of the Immortals, so when they have the next war, who will I root for?

Needless to say, I cannot wait to read the rest of The Blood Inheritance Trilogy (Defiance and Deliverance). 

I give Dissension 5 out of 5 stars!
