Overall, the plot line here is a good one, with a lot to keep the reader on the edge of their seats. Lissa's soft heart and guilt-ridden conscience seems to get her into more trouble than any typical person. One of her mates comments that she is "taking in strays" and it does seem that some of her actions here are impulsive. The ASD Director that Lissa has to work with is a bit annoying, but considering his background of being sold into slavery as a child, one can hardly be surprised that he is needy, insecure, and overly-focused on his job/accomplishing his goals.
On the technical side, there still isn't enough variation between the characters' speech. At one point the ASD Director comments that Lissa didn't "slap him through a wall" as expected. Prior to reading this series, I had never heard that phrase before, and I've lived in MANY places. So for this character to use it after SO MANY other characters from other planets have used it is just trite.
I've also noticed that, quite often, the prose explaining a set of dialogue comes *after* the dialogue. So someone will say something, but we don't know that the character is even in the room until *after* s/he says something. It just doesn't flow very well, and I tend to be confused as to who is speaking and when they showed up until that information is relayed. It would be so easy to reverse the sequence and explain that someone walks into the room and says whatever they have to say.
While the technical issues mentioned here bother me, the ideas, characters and the plot line continue to keep me intrigued and reading. This novel ends mostly on a high note with some new additions to Lissa's family, so it finally seems like Lissa is catching a break. I look forward to the next novel.
Blood Redemption shows Lissa Getting to the bottom of past and present assassination plots and securing her future. Faced with betrayal, intentional and otherwise we see our favorite vampire queen at her best. When all is said and done much has happened, and most if not all unanswered questions have been resolved in a gratifying way.
Blood Redemption is an extremely satisfying read for fans who have followed Lissa story this far and another great addition to the series.
***There is a tiny bit of a spoiler in here surrounding characters following this*** There are new characters and characters that were previously more in the background who are main players in this book. My only problem with the book is that since those background characters came forward, the previous lead characters are barely mentioned. I missed Gavin, Tony, Winkler, and my Falchani twins! :)
But overall, I loved this book.I read it in one night and woke up with gigantic bags under my eyes!
All nine books of the Blood Destiny series where Lissa and her world of vampires, werewolves, shapeshifters, nonhumans and humans come to life are worth reading again and again. I plan to leave them on my Kindle home page permanently and enjoy them time after time.
