January 23, 2013 Bloodline Trilogy (Book 2)

Five years ago, Keelyn Blake's armed, mentally ill stepfather took her family hostage in their house in rural Colorado. She and her half-sister Raven made it out alive, but others did not. Authorities blamed the father's frequent hallucinations about a being named Lucent, but in the end, even the best of the FBI's hostage negotiators failed to overcome the man's delusions and end the standoff peacefully.

Now, Lucent is back, and he's no hallucination. In fact, he is a very real person with dangerous motives. He has kidnapped Raven's daughter, and--Keelyn worries--maybe has hurt Raven as well. Though she is estranged from her sister, Keelyn feels the immediate need to find Raven and save what family she has left. But when others who were involved in that fateful day start dying, some by mysterious circumstances, Keelyn wonders if she can emerge unscathed a second time.

My take on this book:
Keelyn Blake is the main character in this story and we meet her a few years after her stepfather murdered her mother and siblings. Thing is he said he was under the influence of a demon named Lucent, and most thought it was just the delusional thoughts of a mentally unstable man. Now though Lucent has returned and he is anything but the figment of someones imagination, but he is an evil force with plans of murder, and this time he is after the rest of Keelyn's family. Can they stop him before he finishes what he started all those years ago?

If I had to describe this book in one word I would say pageturner! This book is an edge of your seat thriller that held my attention from the get go. I didn't realize that this was the second book in the Bloodline Trilogy, and was afraid I might be lost since I didn't read the first book, but honestly the author does an amazing job of providing enough background information that I totally understood what was going on. While the plot is a page turner that really has several unique twists, I really enjoyed the depth of the characters, they were very well written, I was even able to feel empathy for the "bad' guy which is a great accomplishment for an author to achieve. Anyone who enjoys a fast paced medical drama, with mystery suspense along with a dash of romance and an inspirational slant will certainly find this a compelling read. I can't wait to see where the author takes us with the final installment of this trilogy. 

A complimentary copy of this book was provided in exchange for an honest review.
