I do not normally rate Sherrilyn Kenyons books this low, so let me explain.
I am starting to get that all the books written with Dianna Love have very shallow icy characters. You never see them as warm friendly. Even later when the situation is resolved. All relationships are...more
I picked it up that night anyway wanting to find out what she didn't like about it since we usually have the same taste. The story moved at a fast pace and was interesting. In the first chapter you’re not quite sure...more

Ways to know your book is horrible:
1. Your protagonist starts off captured in a cell for a crime she didn't commit yada yada yada yet spends passages describing the "muscley pounds of badass tapering into his jeans" cuffed to the wall across from her. This is almost a direct quote, by the way. Not exa...more
Let me just say that when I got to the end of this book, my first reaction was "Those bitches!!" Now, normally, you might think this was a bad thing or insulting but honestly, I couldn't believe...more
I was hesitant at first about reading this series because paranormal romance/urban fantasy has been grating on my nerves recently with all the predictable, trite plot lines and over-sexed
This is the first book in this series, and there is a lot of world building in it. New characters and realities. This is not a paranormal romance and falls more into the Urban Fantasy realm. There are some romantic interests but nothing is really fleshed out, leaving it for future books.
After reading some other...more
The supernatural beings are largely hidden -- they have developed ways to communicate and to keep their identity from the regular humans just as the Beladors strive to protect all humans.
This world is not without discrimination...more
Two years ago, Evalle found herself a prisoner along with two male beladors by the names of Quinn and Tzader. A rogue belador is running loose. Luckily, Evalle, Quinn and Tzader all barely escaped.

Let me just start by saying that this book is paranormal THRILLER and not paranormal ROMANCE. So if you're looking for the latter, you'll be a tad disappointed. It does have a tiny spark of romance thrown in but not that will make your heart flutters.
For me, the strength of the story is the characters. The chemistry and camaraderie betw...more

As far as urban fantasy goes, this book takes on new brand of fantasy element. The main character, Evalle, is a unique member of a tribe of Belador warriors. These warriors a...more
That said, I enjoy Kenyon's style of writing, but I didn't recognize it here. Not sure what part Ms. Love contributes to thi...more
Sherrilyn Kenyon and Dianna Love
FIRST, I would have enjoyed a bit of Evalle’s past. She spoke of how awful it was but barely any details were given. I would have liked to know where she truly comes from and what makes her kick.
Unlike other people who may think Kenyon and Love over described everyone so much for a first novel in the series; I myself enjoyed it. There was really no character that I didn’t understand fully because Kenyon and Love describes everyon...more
Here's the good, bad and ugly on Sherrilyn Kenyon and Dianna Love's "Blood Trinity":
The good - The writing is fabulous. The story progresses at a nice pace. I don't feel that it drags at any point and it had my attention...more
Evalle Kincaid is not only a Belador she is of a mixed breed. Despite the personal risks that she faces, she is willing to t...more
Paranormal Romance- Sept. 17th, 2010
Blood Trinity is a fascinating new series that combines the joined forces of authors Sherrilyn Kenyon and Dianna Love. Although this is an urban fantasy it is lighter than most books in the same genre. It doesn't have an aura of dark desperateness. I believe this is because the heroine is so capable and matter of fact you feel she can conquer anything that comes her way.
In Blood Trinity, Evalle is a Bela...more
At half way through there have been a lot of things going on with multiple strands to the story. We have met lots of different characters throughout who have interesting stories of their own each and relationships prior to the start of the book etc...however, something is just not quite clicking for me as I am not feeling much for any of the characters....more
The story was great and i really enjyed this world the DL and SK created. the charaters are fantastic and have so much potential for future story telling. even though the book suffered a bit from first book syndrom, I still managed to find it interesting.
My ony thing i...more
Two authors collaborating on a single book can either produce something extraordinary as in the case of all the Ilona Andrews books or something truly abysmal as in the case of BLOOD TRINITY.
Oh wow is this book a mess. Two authors apparently means no editor. The writing is clunky and extremely redundant. Did these authors not communicate at all? It’s almost as if they each wrote this story and instead of editing the best parts from each into a single bo...more
The world building was amazing - it was so unique and detailed that you could get lost in that alone. The characters Evalle, Tzader, Quinn, and a few othe...more
