Cami is a great character. I love that even though she comes from humble beginning she is pretty solid in her background. To be thrown into a suddenly rich lifestyle but to keep yourself, is tough. I like that she wasn't letting it change who she was as a person.
The romance is really well done. At first I was a bit wary, cause he was attached to another lady. Fortunately this is a mixed narrative and you get to see how it shapes up.
This book has a great supporting cast, many of then take over the narrative for a bit. It is a little jumpy at times, but it helps get make a fuller story. There are a lot of elements to keep track of throughout. The mixed narrative helps you understand everything and keeps the story popping.
I listened to the audiobook narrated by Teri Schnaubelt. She does a fabulous job with all the voices and accents. There was so much to do, with all those narratives. She keeps it consistent and distinctive. Her pace is swift and really helps move the story along. I enjoyed her energy and am eager to hear her in the rest of the series.
I am very eager to see where the story goes next, This is definitely a series that is connected and needs to be read in order. This book ends on a happy note, not a cliffhanger but not a happy ever after.
Disclosure - I received a copy of this book in exchange for and honest review. All thoughts, opinions and ratings are my own.
Now that I raved about the author I will rave about Blood Debt! I adored Camille and her new found family at the very beginning, they all accepted her with open arms (I always felt that they were too open and something else was going on). There was only one main character that I did not like and I wasn’t supposed to like her, every character stood out to me in their own way
There was also so much mystery within the story that Camille needs to uncover. Even after finishing the first book, I have questions unanswered. This means that I WILL be reading book two to find out more. I also love that the story had a forbidden love; I was rooting for all forbidden love within the book the whole time.
I was very engaged from cover to cover and it has a lot to do with the world that Nancy Straight developed. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys books that involves fantasy with a little bit of Greek mythology mixed in.
For some quick points:
- Everyone in Cami's life is perfect. She discovers her perfect father, perfect 5 half-brothers that are indistinguishable from each other, perfect Gretchen(the mother to her half-brothers), perfect house, perfect car, perfect friends, etc.
Everyone is rich, healthy, happy, friendly, welcoming, with great jobs. She's the hottest thing on the marriage market and has guys lining up(perfect guys) to give her their husband resumes. It's all so ridiculous I kept waiting for the other shoe to drop, but it turns out it's all 100% legit.
- Any possible problem Cami runs into is quickly dealt with so that faces very little adversity.
- Worst case of insta-love(Drake catches Cami when she trips and is head over heels ready to propose in love with her).
- The antagonist is a non-issue for most of the book and when she does decide to be a nuisance, it makes no sense. She tells Cami she has to marry a person that Cami had already agreed to marry in a few years. Why did she even bother getting involved?
- Any slightly interesting element was either forgotten or fell flat when revealed. Cami finds a diary from her mom and reads all of two short entries and we're not told the rest of it. Cami's dead mom is desperate to tell her a secret that she won't tell anyone who can actually communicate with her. Then at the very end when Cami finally can talk to her the mom doesn't tell her the secret and instead uses that brief moment to say something that no one cares about. Then she fades before saying the important thing.
- In short, this book was boring, underwhelming, full of issues, and seems to be written as a fantasy-fulfillment type story(for readers who want to dream about falling into the "perfect" life).
