Especially after what happened to her family, but her dog seems to trust him completely. Now let’s hope that this stranger will be on this way before he discovers her secret.
Bloodlands by Christine Cody is the first novel in her Bloodlands Trilogy and I have to say that the storyline was interesting. The world building was fabulous and the characters intriguing. I never expected the twist in this book.
Badlands is an area where dark creatures and human who are different find their hiding place and where everyone is accepted. The heat is unbearable during the day, so you can only come out at night or with a special uniform.
Gabriel and Mariah are both strong characters and both has something to hide. Mariah seems to discover Gabriel being a vampire soon enough, but holds this a secret from the rest of the group. She needs him around, because his ability to calm her is very good to smooth the best growing inside her. But will Gabriel be able to forgive her when he learns the truth about Mariah heritage and what happened to Abby.
To make matters worse someone or something has been killing some of the hunters, Stamp’s men and he is determined to get the killer. All eyes are on Gabriel, but the outcome is more surprising.
This novel is really surprise me, it’s well written and has some darkness in it. I was really surprise to discover some of the outcome and now I’m curious to see what will happen next. The end was good and a little sad, but it could go any way.
