Review: Burden of Blood by Wenona Hulsey

Released: July 28, 2011
Publisher: Trestle Press
Rated: Adult
Series: The Nicole Keenan Series, Book 1
*Book was provided by author for honest review*
No one wants to know everyone’s darkest secrets, especially not police officer, Nicole Keenan. All she wants is a blissfully normal life in the small, Alabama town where she was born. But as generations of power running through her veins start to wake up, an ancient grudge is ignited that threatens to push her over the edge. She can hardly believe in what she is, let alone that a dark force will not stop until she's joins them. Or is dead. Nicole Keenan's life enters into a dangerous dance with warriors and gothic fairies. Southern tradition collides with Irish folklore as she learns about love, heartbreak, and The Burden of Blood.

What I thought

The beginning of the book really hooked me. It really interested me when Nicole was able to hear all of the evil thoughts around her and was able to take that and do something with it. Like, say, arrest them.

It did take on a twist I wasn't expecting and had plenty of excitement until the end of the book. Nicole seems to be a bit of a loner, but not by choice. So it was hard to see her push everyone away at different points, the rest of the story made up for her need to be alone in her fight.

The novel is shrouded in mystery and adventure and even a bit of romance. The premise is intriguing and it sounds to be a very promising series as things start to really get heated up towards the end.
