So the story follows Deem who has some natural gifts which allow her to see those who had been affected by the nuclear fallout. Ghosts that were at one time stuck between this world and the next are now a little zombified and Deem is very good at knowing what she is doing. Well when it comes to dealing with Ghosts. Humans she is not as good with and it shows by the fact that she is doing everything she can to find out what was really going on with her father.
See in the Mormon faith in this book, those with the gift are otherwise kicked out of the religion and therefore do not have the support system they need to survive both spiritually and physically. When her father passed away she realized that her father was protecting her a lot more than she ever realized.
I really enjoy this story, not because I am or am not Mormon so that has really no impact on how I feel about it. What I did enjoy was the history of the Mormon faith and I did not know a lot of about what Deem had to deal with or talked about. It was really interesting and it was really important to the story line. When your entire faith is created around not believing in something or not accepting you because of a personal attributes. On a more personal note, I know people who are of this faith and are super accepting and I know people who are of this faith that if you are not Mormon you are not to be talked to.
The paranormal aspect of this book really pulls you in, especially the first couple of pages where you are like WTF just happened, but it gets better, so much better. I really enjoy how the author tells you little things about the characters to make them really alive. I really get into some books and this is one of them. I will be reading the rest of the series, I just hope they are as good.
P.S. They have this book as horror and while there are some little tidbits of scariness, I don't consider it horror.
In Blood Oath, Blood River Winn and Deem team up to do battle against the supernatural and a group of Elders of the Mormon Church. Set in the Utah/Nevada area, the book is filled with real and fictional people, places and events. Winn and Deem are trying to save Deem’s unknowing mother from losing her life to skin walkers (plus various other evils), and her respectful status in the local church. Deem has to walk a fine line to accomplish these tasks. Among their many adventures, Winn and Deem have to trick a scared and angry ghost to cooperate, convincing him they will free him from his torment forever, but he must do as they say and enter the Blood River and speak his killer’s name. Sad thing, the boy does not know he is dead, and thinks his brother is coming back to save him. His brother sacrificed him so he himself could become the very skin walker that threatens Deem and her family.
Blood Oath, Blood River is the first spin off from Michael Richan’s “The River” series. The River refers to an alternate dimension where ghosts and other paranormal are visible to the gifted ones. What might look like a bunch of ruins to the normal person may be a fully functional “ghost town” seen only in the flow of the River. The author is also kind enough to add a glossary to help us, the readers, understand the local and religious vernacular used in this book. This book could be read as a standalone, but you would be missing a great series that started the journey.
It would seem that everything is out to get her... But what will get her first? The Secret Counsel of the LDS or the Skinwalker that seems to be unstoppable?
Pick this up to find out... Its awesome!!!
Other than that it is a good book. I look forward to reading the other two books in the series.
