One thing I really liked about this book was the fact that Cara was introduced to this mythical world she had no idea existed, and instead of readily accepting it and moving on she was quite unable to accept it, which seemed more realistic to me. I liked the characters of the book and felt like they each had their own personalities. I wish the first book had revealed more to Cara about her true nature but I did like the cliffhanger that ended the book and am interested to see where the next book ends up.
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.
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!

Perhaps not the most legit review because I did not finish the book. I confess I read only about a chapter, just enough to discover that it is tediously overwritten. Read morePublished 21 months ago by K. A. Smith
