Blood Bargain (Blood Lines)

However, lately she keeps hearing someone calling her name when no one is around. Is it a new power or something more sinister? Adam Walker is a vampire who moved to the small Texas town to be closer to Keira. The two are co-habitating at his ranch but something isn't quite right. Adam is stumbling lately as well as waking up later and later everyday. He is also abstaining from drinking blood and it is slowly killing him. Meanwhile, a group of teenagers are missing as well as a local ranch hand.

Keira and her brother Tucker do some of their own searching to see if the supernatural is involved. While they don't find the teenagers, they do find something else. What they find changes Keira's life forever. But while they are searching, Adam slips into a coma. It is a thrilling series with a lot of surprises.

I picked up book one Matters of the Blood based on good reviews. I read them together, so I will review them together also. Maria Lima has a readable writing style and the overall storyline had potential. What didn't work for me?

Just about everything else. The heroine is a self confessed 'trust fund baby'. Which sounds more interesting than reality. Neither the heroine nor her boyfriend display much personality, rather blah people. After reading the first three books in the series, I cannot figure out what the heroine does with all her time. In book two she does a few daytime errands for her nocturnal vampire boyfriend. She has sex with the boyfriend when he's awake , lunch with the girlfriend, and the reader is left to speculate what she does the rest of the time.

The most interesting characters about the only interesting characters in these books are Keira's brother, Tucker, and his vampire boyfriend. Almost without exception, everyone mentioned is into 'serial monogamy' I have deep reservations about characters aged in excess of 1, years, it's not a plot device I find believable nor desirable unless the character is insane The heroine has a couple ex-boyfriends that are discussed much more often than necessary, they are 'on-stage' more often than the current beau unfortunately.

Inconsistencies, the most memorable being the heroine coming into these 'awesome' powers. Which quickly becomes a confusing jumble of 'will she', 'won't she', and 'what will she become'? The storyline says one thing, does another, generally inconsistent all around and quickly becomes just another annoyance factor. And then there's the factual errors do some authors live in a cave? The heroine prepares to travel from the Southwest US to Western Canada, and considers which passport to travel on and leads us to believe she has more than 2 choices.

Frankly, I've traveled to Canada several times I thought book one had interesting potential, despite the flaws already apparent. Book two continued to magnify the flaws, and by book three I waded through the first third with numerous eyerolls, skimmed the second third, then tossed the unfinished book under my bed to languish with the dust bunnies until it was due to be returned to the library. If you like bland, name-dropping, party-snob, rich people pretending to live like 'the folks' this could be the series for you.

Otherwise, there's much better paranormal fiction available.

So glad I didn't actually invest money in this series. See all 15 reviews. Most recent customer reviews.
