Blood Trinity Blog Tour

Atlanta has become the battlefield between human and demon. All her life, Evalle has walked the line between the two. Her origins unknown, she’s on a quest to learn more about her past and her future.

But when a demon claims a human and there’s no one else to blame, Evalle comes under fire. It’s no longer a question of learning about herself, it’s a question of survival. Through the underground of an alternate Atlanta where nothing is as it seems to the battleground of where her VIPER allies have become the force that is now hunting her, Evalle must prove her innocence or pay the ultimate price.

But proving her innocence is the least of her problems if she doesn’t stop the coming apocalypse. The clock is ticking and it’s about to become a lot hotter in Atlanta.

My take:
.I got this book yesterday but I'm halfway finished.  It's a cross between urban lit, fantasy, and romance.  Evalle is intriguing as she is the only one of her kind who is allowed to roam free as others have attacked her tribesman.  Only she believes herself to be part of the tribe.  Two others agree with her and will defend her at nearly any cost.  But she is not a full-blooded Belador.  She possesses other powers that frighten others and empower her. 

This is not your traditional fantasy lit.  The world of demons and Beladors is intertwined with the current day human world.  In fact, the Belador are meant to protect the human race from the demons and other worldly beings who might use them as a tasty feast. 

Because the authors are not creating a brand new world from scratch, I had a much easier time following the storyline and keeping the characters clear in my mind.  I generally struggle with fantasy literature.  I'll admit that I could not finish Lord of the Rings. 

Please.  Don't write me out of your will.

The authors introduce the reader to characters with personalities, histories, and their own baggage which will be revealed in time.  The book is action packed and provides many different directions for the next books to follow.  Like I said, I'm not finished but I'm not putting it down. 

So far, so good.

I love fantasy fiction and used to devour it like crazy AND I couldn't stand reading LoTR. I did thoroughly enjoy the movies though (Legolas, Aragorn, siiiiggggghhhhh).

I'll throw this one on my to read list. Thanks!!
