Book Suggestions: Blood Trial, by Kelly St. Claire (2019).

Something worth while taking a second look at.

Abstract

The dice are rolled at midnight.

As the twenty-one-year-old heiress to the Le Spyre fortune, my life should consist of strawberry mojitos and golf carts. Right?

But I’m determined to forge my own path.

Desperate to escape the meaningless games of the rich, I flee my family’s estate.

Secret alias—check.
Place to sleep—uh, kind of?
Job—crap!

I’ve bitten off more than I can chew, but that’s the least of my worries.

My city is a giant board game. The players are supernatural— freakin’ vampires—including an overbearing crown prince whose unwanted attention could spell my demise.

Now, I must play their deadly game, or my grandmother and best friend will pay the ultimate price

Book Reviews

Book Review: Boy, Swallows, Universe, by Trent Dalton (2018).

I recieved this book as a Christmas gift, and although its not of my usual genre I found myself quite interested. It tells the story of a young boy named Eli and his life in 1983 in Australia. unfortunately Eli doesn’t have the best experience growing up. His brother is mute. He doesn’t know his father. His mother is a drug addict, who ends up partnering with her boyfriend and dealing Her o i ne to support themselves and her two children. Not exactly the best family life. The story describes what life is like and how del v i ng
i n to the life of convicted criminals past and present.

What I liked about the book?

I feel this is a unique storyline, though admittedly not of my usual genre so I am not entirely sure how correct my assumption really is. But in itself, this was what had me turning pages, constantly needing
to know if things will become worse or better for Eli and his defective family. The author has portrayed some really interesting characters, and sends them forth on a journey that could easily lead to ruin. Thankfully our characters are much stronger than the predicaments they find themselves in.

What I didn’t like

There really wasn’t a great deal not to like in this novel. Great characters and fascinating storyline. The author has definitley done his research about prison and used references in some interesting ways in portraying life for people who live behind bars.

Overall.

Admittedly, I have enjoyed this Novel from a great new author. Trent Dalton is def in itley one author to keep an eye out for. I would recommend this novel to all fiction book lovers. Especially those who spent their childhood in NSW Australia. I give this book a rating of 7 /10 stars.
