Gabrielle Bissett is here talking about the upcoming release of BLOOD PROPHECY

Thanks to the wonderful bloggers here at Vampires, Werewolves & Fairies, Oh My! for having me here today! Be sure to enter the giveaway at the end of the post, but don't skip over the post because the answer to the giveaway question is in there somewhere.
All March I've been guesting at blogs talking about my Sons of Navarus series as I get ready for the release of the fourth novel in the series, Blood Prophecy. Ramiel is the hero of this book, but there's a lot of Thane in Blood Prophecy too because they have to work together to find the answer to solving the Prophecy of Idolas.
Ramiel and Thane are like night and day. Whereas Ramiel is gruff and often violent, Thane is always the gentleman. Their opposite views of the world—Ramiel's is negative while Thane's is positive—help them balance each other out, but sometimes that can be difficult. Here's an example of their relationship:

From underneath the pillow, Ramiel heard the door open, the sound of a few footsteps across the hardwood floor, and then a voice saying, "You don't plan to stay in here all night, do you? We have work to do before we leave."
Still shielded by the pillow, Ramiel knew without even looking that the fellow Son stood smiling at him. "Thane, do you wake up this fucking happy?"
"No, not usually, but tonight's different. We're finally getting our chance to take on the Archons. I think it's worth a little happiness, isn't it?"
Ramiel threw the pillow off his head to see Thane standing there staring at him with that boyish grin plastered on his face. "Chance at the Archons? What we really get to do is track down some guy who may be able to help us and a damn kid who, if we're lucky, isn't still in diapers."
Thane threw his head back and laughed. "I don't think five-year-olds wear diapers, Ramiel. C'mon. Let's go."
He wasn't going to let him stay in bed, obviously. Tossing aside the covers, he swung his legs off the bed and sat up. "I don't think two Sons of Navarus should have to fucking babysit at the same time they're working to solve the Prophecy of Idolas."
Thane shrugged. "It does seem like we have a lot to deal with. We can handle it, though."
Ramiel found his happiness hard to understand. "Always Sammy Sunshine. Jesus, Thane, doesn't anything get to you?"

For Ramiel, life has always been hard. Born a Visigoth, he was sold into slavery as a child to a Roman family in the late 300s and was a slave until his people sacked the empire in 410. Those years have never left his memory but have left their mark on him. Thane, on the other hand, was an English nobleman in his human life, so his memories are far less painful. Because of this, you can say he's the more optimistic Son compared to his partner.

Blurb from Blood Prophecy: I am everything you fear. I am vampire.
As the two Sons chosen to decipher the Prophecy of Idolas, Ramiel and Thane journey to find the key to defeating the Archons. Together with Noele, a born vampire, they confront their fates as they fulfill their duty to their world. Along the way, they'll find love, but death and betrayal lurk in the shadows, threatening everything dear to them.
Descended from the gods and warriors all, each Son's loyalty will be tested. Every action has consequences, and the choices they make now seal their fates. Alliances as old as the vampire world itself are reforged, and the Sons' duty is clear. Stop the Archons. Or die trying.
