Sherrilyn Kenyon and Dianna Love have hit one out of the park with this series. Blood Trinity is non-stop action, keen suspense and characters who won't let go of you.

Readers who like paranormal and fantasy elements--and I mean readers across urban fantasy, thriller and suspense genres--and, yes, romance-- will find a book they can't put down. This urban fantasy is a step outside Kenyon and Love's normal romance genre, and I was worried I wouldn't like it, but as a romance reader, I absolutely LOVE this book! The characters are irresistible, from Evalle, Tzader and Quinn, to two of the best surprises in the book--Feenix and Storm. It's not a romance, but I was hanging on every nuance of the love interests in this story, and this die-hard romance reader is already wishing for the next one.

Great world, wonderful characters, killer plot. I've said it before and I'll say it again. The Kenyon-Love team is one of the best things to happen to fiction in a long time. I was ready for something fresh which did not follow the same old pattern. This is it.

Don't hesitate. Do not pass Go. Do not collect $200. Go directly to the buy button and get this book. You won't be sorry.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Evalle is an anomaly among anomalies. She has a heritage that links her to the Belador tribe, but is treated like an outcast because of her lack of pure blood. To others she is known as an Alterant. This is the name given to half-breed Beladors who have the ability to shift into a beast and endanger society. Evalle has no idea what else her genetic makeup is composed of. She was raised by an aunt who kept her locked in the basement, and her lips sealed shut when it came to questions about Evalle's absent parents. Evalle now works for an organization that helps to keep the non-humans in Atlanta under control. She also continues to try to prove herself to her tribe. Evalle is constantly trying to show them she isn't like the others that have been locked away, and that she has control over the beast inside her. Now a suspicious murder has taken place, and Evalle will have to prove yet again she wasn't involved, while also preventing the foreseen destruction of the world as she knows it.

Main character Evalle is definitely a card carrying member of the Badass Chick Club. Not only does she ride a motorcycle and have a gargoyle for a pet, but she takes crap from no one. I loved her sassiness, and how she continually gave those that wanted to take her down the finger (figuratively speaking of course), all while showing little regard for the position of authority they held My favorite part is that underneath the tough exterior she was a bit of a softie when it comes to those she holds dear. Always true to her word, and willing to do anything to save a friend or the tribe who merely tolerated her.

This book had a lot of characters. Some may consider this a fault, but I felt the authors did what was needed to set us up for a very intricate world.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I refuse to believe that Sherrilyn Kenyon contributed anything but her name and editing skills to this book. This is the second one I have attempted to read the was a collaboration between her and Dianna Love. There is only one main character. 500+ about one person seems a bit much and the suspense was NOT there. Evalle's most apparent love interest does not show up until p 115 which by-the-way was only 4 hours from the start of the book.
EX. The book begins at 3am-ish and she meets him in a meeting at 7am. The most interesting part of the 1st 100 pages was a mercenary's "wicked" six-shooter. How many times does an author have to beat a reader over the head with how horrible Evalle's childhood was, but give no details. How abhorrent her being an Alterrant is, no details. Everything was lacking in this book...character construction, action, suspense, romance (being kissed on pg 332 doesn't count--the man is enthralled with how she smells!!! PLEASE! What is this? An Axe commercial.) The book could have been condensed down to 200-250 pages and would have flowed much better. The reader doesn't need to know every move made in the 4 day period this book covers. Cut the fat!

Here is why I gave the book only 2 stars:
Pretty much every other character that is introduced in Blood Trinity is drop-dead gorgeous and filling out their jeans nicely in a `guess who will be getting their own story in this series' kind of way. It is not necessary to introduce every single character in a series in the first book of that series. I found it very distracting and I would rather get to know a few characters well then a lot superficially.

The authors can't seem to stress enough that Evalle is the `I'm an independent woman, I don't want/need your help' kind of girl.
Unfortunately the authors don't give a lot of background information on why Evalle is that way. Which makes it hard to empathize with Evalle and her trust issues.
Throughout the book they give you little hints that Evalle has been traumatized by her difficult childhood and a bad experience with a (human) man, but they never let you live through some of the bad experiences with her. (if you have read Sherrilyn's Acheron you know that she is very capable of writing that kind of storyline).
It actually felt like the authors are saving the story of Evalle's childhood and how she came to take the Belador vows for another book.

I was going to give 3 stars to the book. Despite my criticism it is not a poorly written book, it's just not for me. But I had to subtract a star for this oh puhlease moment:
So we have a severely traumatized heroine with a lot of trust issues regarding men. Then at one point in the book (spoiler alert) she is abducted by a group of mercenaries who force her in a car to take her to their leader because... he wants a date with her (WTF?). And then instead of getting angry at him, she decides to see the humor of the situation and goes through with the date...
