The book's main character is a girl named Cara. Cara is a college student with no family and few friends. She very quickly finds herself in a lot of danger and deeply in love with a mysterious stranger that's always right there when danger comes calling, to save her. He's from a family of vampire hunters, who have special powers and a few secrets of their own. Cara remains pretty ignorant to most of this through out the book and by book's end only knows the bare basics of this supernatural world she's been sucked into.
Though a romance story with a very mild sexual undertone at its core, this book contains a lot of religious elements. Much of it is very heavy with Christian sentiments. Almost nothing takes place in this book without one or more of the characters thanking, praying to, or otherwise mentioning God and this, to me, after awhile felt a bit overdone. Not really what one might expect from a small pressing calling itself Hellfire Publishing...but even so the storyline is compelling and the characters aren't overly "goodie-goodie".
My only real complaint about Blood and Lilies is that I wish more of the loose ends had been tied up. I don't feel like much was resolved by book's end and I didn't feel enough had been revealed to Cara. I want to see what her reaction is going to be to learning the whole truth about not only her new boyfriend and his family but herself as well. I wonder if it will be what the good guy's are hoping for, or if they have held back too much of the truth from her for her to continue to trust them. I suppose I will have to wait until the second book in this series to find out.
Vampyre’s, a Vampyre Queen, Werewolf’s, Halfling’s, and Half Breeds. They live among the human’s but a power struggle between them is beginning to emerge.
Cara, is a normal college student whose life is turned upside down when she becomes the pawn in Zillah, the vampire queen’s, quest to destroy God and take over his kingdom. Cara has no idea about her ancestry or about how she is the key between the two worlds. Eamon is a Halfling, and is in love with Cara. He will protect her at all cost, as the battle between good and evil heats up.
There are a lot of twists and turns and you will get sucked into the suspense. The author does a good job of explaining all the terminology and who’s on each side. I can’t wait for the story to continue!
There are so many good things about this book but I don't want to spoil the story for you. Get this book as soon as you can and enjoy the ensuing read.
I could not put this book down! This book definitely kept me guessing, even the last page threw me for a loop - I did NOT see that coming. I highly recommend this book to those who like supernatural romance books. The romance was done in a very nice, subtle way - it was pure love and not just lust, which is so refreshing. I don't think I can say enough about this book.. you just have to get it and read it, you won't regret it, I promise!
I can never turn down a good paranormal book, and this on e was no different...
We meet Cara, a college student, who has no family, and only has her best friend Kelsey standing by her, gets thrown into a world which she thought only exists in the books that she reads...
Heaven and Hell are at war, and it will take one innocent girl living on earth to tip the scales.
Good vs Evil
"I lay here silent in a bleeding sea
That is created of blood and lily
The pure are tainted
Salvation is gone
Among the fallen
Left with no song
For me they wait
And die for
Among the fallen Of blood and Lily"
Good and Evil will come to blows, secrets will be revealed, love will be found and lost, families will be torn apart, and death is only around the corner.
After discovering alot about herself along the way, Cara finds her one true friend can't be her friend anymore, and those she holds dear to her know, are those who will hunt her "friend" down...
Cara and her new found friends must make a stand to fight the evil that is trying to claim Cara's life, and cause an unimaginable amount of pain and destruction into the human realm.
"And don't thank me. There is no need to. Your life is more important to me than you will ever know. I will die to save you, Cara. Even if you told me you hate me and the fire of a thousand suns and wished my death a thousand times more. I would still die so your heart could be on."
I could not put this book down! This book definitely kept me guessing, even the last page threw me for a loop - I did NOT see that coming...
I highly recommend this book to those who like supernatural romance books.
