I enjoyed this book and highly recommend it.
I am not a crime reader, (I prefer the Bourne Identity type of books) and picked this book up because of a friends recommendation. I really liked it and once started finished it in less than 2 days. I just couldn't put it down and can't wait for the next book in the series to come out.
If you are looking for a well written book that follows an intriguing process of events then this is a must read book. Excellent as a stocking stuffer or a gift for that special reader under the tree.
Got an hour? Because that's how long it'll take to describe all the great things about this book. But I'll try to keep it to a more appropriate length. To summarize, it's a mix between episodes of Law & Order, Cold Case and a dash of X-Files thrown in, creating a very unique appeal. To be fair, I haven't read as many book in general as Bec and certainly not as many self-published books, but based upon her reviews (and Sharon's) and the few I've been either able to read or at least browse through, Blood Passage is one of the best self-published books I think I will ever come acorss. I've read highly acclaimed, traditionally published books that wouldn't stand up to this one in quality and would merely equal its entertainment value.
This book's got everything: a great main plot, interesting and not overwhelming subplots, believeable characters, true-to-life dialogue, and a satisfying ending that leaves you with just enough unanswered questions (it is a crime novel, after all), not to mention an appropriate level of researched description that would satisfy various kinds of readers. I'm the kind of person that gets bogged down with lots of description, especially seemingly unimportant details that go on and on. But with Blood Passage if I felt a portion was filler detail, unimportant to the rest of the story, I could quickly skim thorough it and get back to the action. If you're the kind of person who likes detail, this book's got it in measured amounts.
I don't feel I've done my job unless I find something about a book that could be improved. Usually it isn't that hard.Read more ›
Not your typical police drama with the inclusion of reincarnation. Many crime drama writers wouldn't have taken this turn, but you know what, it works. It makes the story seem more like something that could actually happen. Especially once you read what the child knows. Action filled and worthy of it's own television show, this book is perfect for those looking for something a little different. I thoroughly enjoyed this book.
I didn't find anything wrong. It covered all the bases.
I gave this one a 5 out of 5 books because I didn't see the reincarnation coming and it was easy to accept when it did.
