I felt bad for Corinth (aka Cori). She had such a hard life. Her mother was abusive and her father was long gone. She had a lot of anger built up inside of her. I would have too if that were my life. So when her powers manifested in a way that caused damage, she felt that she had no choice but to leave. I did think that she was way too trusting. She trusted Rylo right from the beginning. She trusted the Kamai when she met them and so on. She did catch on to people as her power grew but still. The instant connection that she had with Queen Tazmina was interesting.
Rylo was very hard to get a handle on. He let few clues out about what happened to him when he was a child and where his family was. I also thought that he was a spy for the Akaram for 90% of the book. The only thing that I didn’t doubt was his feelings for Cori. I also didn’t doubt his anguish of not allowing himself to become involved with her. I was very surprised when it was revealed what happened to him when he was younger. Not only was I shocked by what happened but by who did it and who was behind it. He also proved himself in my eyes by doing what he did at the end of the book.
I thought that the different groups of people were interesting. You have 3 groups of people: the Avadi, the Naida, and the Bagata. The Avadi are people who traits (which are physical and mental) that have become Awakened. They are able to use them for good or bad. The Naida are people who have traits but they are not Awakened. They can either know that they have traits or it comes as a surprise. The Bagata are people with no traits. They are unaware of the Avadi and the Naida. There are also different factions within the Avadi. They are the Kamai and the Akaram. The Kamai is the good Avadi. They protect the Bagata against all sorts of threats, known and unknown. The Akaram are the bad Avadi. They attack the Kamai any chance they could get and didn’t care if the Bagata got hurt.
A Bloodline’s Echo begins when Cori leaves the inn she works at after having her trait manifest. She meets Rylo on the road and he takes her to where the main hub of the Kamai is. It is there that one of the Kamai Elders goes missing. Cori and Rylo are chosen to go find him. Following his trail, they soon realize that all signs point to the King. When they arrive at the capital, Cori is in for a surprise. A huge surprise. But that surprise is eclipsed by when she thinks is Rylo’s betrayal. She finds that everything that she thought she knew was false. The truth will either bind her to the new King or it will set her free.
The secondary characters made the book. They were written so I couldn’t forget them when the chapter ended. I do hope that some of the secondary characters make a reappearance in the rest of the series.
The ending of A Bloodline’s Echo was action filled. There are a dramatic rescue and plans that will lead to the 2nd book. The epilogue was very interesting and I can’t wait to see what will come from that.
I would give A Bloodline’s Echo a rating of Older Teen. There are mild violence and sexual situations. No sex but a lot of kissing and heavy petting.
This is a series that I am looking forward to reading. I would recommend this book to family and friends. I also would reread this book.
**I received a free copy of this book and volunteered to review it**
Once Cori was on her way though she realized that she was not so alone. Someone had been following her through the forest and she soon discovered that is was the hooded stranger that she had seen when she still worked as a barkeep. As it turned out, Rylo had been there the night things had gone all wrong with Cori and he was able to explain to her what she had experienced. He had called it an awakening and that Cori had manifested her powers that night. Cori of course had no idea what he was talking about as she was ignorant to the other groups that inhabited this world. All Cori knew was that she had a father out there somewhere and she wanted to find him.
Cori’s desire to find her father put her feet on the path of an adventure that would bring her into contact with different beings. Beings who were like Cori in the sense that there were awakened and had powers like she did. She would also learn that not everyone had goodness in their hearts and that betrayal had its own destructive sting. One thing was for certain the girl who Cori once was when she started on her path to find her father was not the woman she became at the conclusion of this tale. She learned many lessons along the way and they were very painful ones in some cases.
I liked Cori’s character but I can’t say I connected with her. She was a bit naive and way too trusting at times for my tastes but I liked that when it really mattered that she did not have the wool pulled over her eyes and that she never gave up when she did want to know the truth. Also, I very much enjoyed her learning her powers and seeing her determination to master them. The story is told from different points of view and from first person. I really enjoyed Rylo’s parts because there was some subterfuge going on with him and I liked knowing how he felt about the events as they developed. The ending was an epilogue that was cryptic and had me guessing what was going to come next. A Bloodline’s Echo is a story that will grab a reader by the imagination and take them to a place that thrills their fantasy loving heart!

I'm really excited to read the next book and have already started recommending this book to fellow book lovers.
