“I… I had to s-see what happened.” She glances over my shoulder and instantly begins to sob again.

I look behind me.

The stake is still on the left side of our father’s chest. I’m assuming they haven’t taken it out because they consider it evidence. His eyes are still open. I follow his gaze over to his motorcycle. Of course. His bike would be part of his final thoughts.


My Opinion

Blood Family introduces the readers first to Judas – biker, father, vampire. His assassination leads to major tension among his offspring; his son Liam takes over, trying to find his father’s killer. Taking turns, the main characters tell us their take on the past, present and future. It is a fast paced read with a pleasant flow.

With Blood Family, Charlotte Raine has created the intriguing first part of the Titanium Blood Series. Blood Family is a well-balanced paranormal romance read with interesting characters; some of them are likeable, some mysterious. The author slowly reveals more, making me want to immediately proceed with the second instalment. I was drawn into the story, relatively close to Liam and his sister Sage. It is refreshing that it is not vampire vs. human. Blood Family is a good read for paranormal romance fans, who prefer shorter series reads with a thrill.

This is a very pleasant read, the promising start of a series with a different take on the human/vampire topic.

In brief:

Writing Good
Plot Some twists
Mood Suspenseful
Pace Fast
Characters Developed
Violence Some violence
Sexual content Some sexual content
POV First person (alternating)
