Book review

Posted: October 10, 2015 in books

I should be working on my Current WIP but in my attempts to drag myself out of the dark pit of depression I have fallen into I figured a reading retreat was in order and decided to tackle my TBR pile. Well not quite that pile since I was kind of swayed into reading this particular book but it was a book so mission complete 😀

A car accident changes everything for Dr. Toni Parthen. Her computer hacked hospital blood test confirms she’s the carrier of a gene that’s the key to salvation for a unique race of human beings. Abducted from her hospital room to a secret, underground community, Toni is asked to do the unthinkable: procreate with a man from a race called Varcolac—a species that must consume the blood of other humans to survive. Then bizarre turns dangerous, because a new, mysterious enemy also wants her special DNA, and Toni finds herself in the middle of an all-out war to possess her.
It’s the job of Jacken Brun, leader of the Warrior Class, to keep the captured women safe from a demonic race of humans who rule a neighboring part of their underground world. His challenges multiply when Toni inflames the women into mutiny, and then there’s his biggest problem…his growing desire for the infuriating woman herself. Afflicted with a dark genetic makeup, Jacken can never be with a woman. Until Toni uses her scientific ingenuity to find a way for her and Jacken to be together. But then the new enemy faction unearths Toni and drags her to their hidden lair, where they’ll inflict an unspeakable cruelty on her to gain access to her valuable genes.
It will take every warrior skill Jacken owns to save the woman he loves, but only if he can find her in time….

What swayed my decision to read this book was it’s comparison to The dark hunters series and The Black Dagger Brotherhood series. I love both of these and decided to give the Bloodline War a go and I’m glad I did. I really enjoyed the story though it was a bit of a slow starter. I wouldn’t say it was anything like The Dark Hunters but certain parts did remind me of The Black Dagger Brotherhood. Jacken was a sweet guy and it was obvious something was brewing between him and Toni. Parts did feel a little rushed and I wasn’t keen on some of the switches to other characters which felt a little out of place but overall an enjoyable read. I think it’s fair to say that I will be acquiring the second in the series 😀
