Bloodborne by Sidney Wood
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This book came to my attention through BookTasters. I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed it.
The book centers around Jen, a teenager who is visiting the Middle East with her father. While there she gets kidnapped and is held prisoner. At this point I thought the book was about the current slave trade market. It is and it is more. The author did an awesome job with bringing the horror of the slave trade to light and he did it without being overly graphic. Kudos to him! The story was terrifying to read and I was very invested in whether or not Jen was going to get to go home. Then the author took a sudden left turn. The book turned into one of my favorite genres. Woohoo! And I wasn't thinking it could get any better. I don't want to give out the details as there isn't any reason to read the book then. I want you to read it. It is excellent as a thriller and is shaping up to be an excellent zbook series.
I certainly cannot wait to read book 2. I'm still rooting for Jen.
This book does deal with a mature topic. It is not overly graphic in my opinion. I would let a mature teen read this. It does end on a cliffhanger, so be aware of that. It might be a good idea to pick up Reborn the same time you get Bloodborne.
Thank you to BookTasters and the author who provided an ecopy for review purposes.
