I purchased this book due to the interesting premise and the 5 star reviews. The book certainly isn't bad, but its not stellar either. It has most (if not all) of the typical youth fiction cliches(dead parents, estranged childhood, etc.) which makes it a bit predictable and therefore a little slow. It was nearly comical how many times that the main character heard something to the effect of "you must have a lot of questions .....but we won't answer them until later" or "Oh. we were going to tell you about that at some point ... but we were busy". On the other hand, the concept of familial bloodlines of guardians to fight against the demons charged with making all sorts of trouble was (at least to me) original and fun. The romance between the main character and his love interest seemed forced for someone with his history, but not a deal breaker. I felt like giving it 2 stars because of what appeared to be nearly cloned 5 star reviews just to average them out, but instead just decided to review it on its own merits. Perhaps the books rough edges will be worked out if the series progresses.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review for my stop on the blog tour.

Rating - 3.5 stars

I haven't read many angel and demon books, and so I was excited to see what Sacred Bloodlines was all about. I wanted to know more about the world Gabe finds out he's a part of and what his decision would ultimately be - whether he chooses to live this new life or go back to his old one. The beginning really pulled me in and was so well done. It was one of my favorite parts of the novel! I really love it when a novel begins with a bang!

Right away I really liked and empathized with the main character Gabe. I found him to be an interesting and multifaceted character that I easily rooted for. I didn't like Uri right away, but he grew on me throughout the novel. I think I didn't like Uri at first because I found myself feeling protective of Gabe. With everything Gabe has been through, I didn't want to see him go through more heartache.

One of the things I didn't like was the constant need for Uri to tell Gabe he'll get his answers when he takes him to the Manor. I think Uri, knowing as much as he does about Gabe, should know that Gabe doesn't have an easy time with trusting others and could have given him at least the gist of what was happening. He would only tell him he'd have to wait to find out. I don't think I would have left with a complete stranger.

Overall, there's plenty of action and excitement, and I flew through it! I really liked the angels and demons aspect of this and thought Wendy Owens created a unique and believable world where these supernatural beings exist. Sacred Bloodlines is a great start to a series, and I'll definitely be reading the rest of the books in it. If you're a fan of fantasy and paranormal, check this series out!

Liked the storyline and was interested to reach the ending. Did not feel it was complete as a book and spell checking does not help if you choose like_ sounding words that mean something else. Some editing would raise this author to a higher level.

The concept of the book was very interesting.

The book being based around the 16 year old boy, Gabe, who lost his parents at a young age and soon comes to find he is apart of a special bloodline. He's taken to a hidden manor, and is told his destiny is to be apart of the "guardians", who are trained to fight demons, evil, and the seven princes of hell.

While the concept is captivating, it was just executed rather poorly in my opinion. I feel that many parts are rushed, and I honestly just don't care much for the main character. had I not liked the concept so much I would have given the book a 3 star rating.

Regardless I will still be reading the second book. (:

Gabe is a sixteen years boy, who thinks his life is cursed, since everyone who cares about him dies. Been an orphan, he is used to move from home to home and as a self-defense mechanism, Gabe try to isolate himself from other people. Mysteriously, awful accidents always occurs near this boy, and worse, he knows when they will happen. After one of those accidents, Uri appears and vow to have the answer for this strange phenom, and he says that if Gabe want to know the truth, he have to go with him. During their travel, Gabe meets Sophie, who claims to be the same as he and Uri. She is beautiful and gain Gabe's attention right away. After this Gabe dives in a world full of demons and people with angel bloodlines, good and evil and one prophecy.
What I liked: The plot. It is good and have all things related to a promising series: Action, romance, treachery, and friendship. Uri. The character is funny, brave and yet, sometimes vulnerable.
What I didn't like: The main character Gabe. From someone who is used to survive the foster system, he is quite fragile. All his life he saw horrible things, yet, he acts as if he had lived a secluded life where bad and strange things never happened. He discovers incredible powers and never remember to use any when he needs them (except for the last part of the story, but even then, he doesn't remember, so how good is it?) I know the main characters usually grows during the plot, but Gabe seems to be an exception to this rule and sincerely, it made this book a little tiresome. Other thing, the author seems to have forgot that teenagers have hormones, and the passion Gabe feels for Sophie is more like a girly crush. I'm not sexist, but there is a difference between the way boys and girls think.
Well, considering everything, this is a good read. I hope the main character will evolve on the next book, and I will keep an eye on it.
