My Review:
I have been trying to get this review posted since 9am. My wireless is down at home and it's seriously disturbing my reviewing flow. I can't sit on my comfy chair, I can't drink coffee and there are loud children in this library (not that I would ever begrudge children their library time). But nevertheless, I will try my best review Blood Trinity in the best way possible.

I loved the world building in this one. I have never felt so immersed in a fantasy world as I did in this one. It was so detailed and intricate. I am usually not a fan of very detailed fantasy worlds but this one worked well. The characters were multi-dimensional and the story was interesting.  I did find that there were a bit too many characters at times. I sometimes had trouble keeping who was who straight.

I was a bit surprised that the romance was so sparse.  I thought that this was billed as a paranormal romance but to find so little romance was both surprising and a pleasant shock. I was glad to read an intro to this series without the pollution of romance (because that is all I would focus on). I found myself following the fantasy and adventure with rapt interest and found that I did not miss the romance at all. I do hope that there is much more romance in the next book in the Belador series but I would continue to follow this series either way.
