I will try my best not to ramble on but...

I can not tell you how much I absolutely, completely, utterly, adored this book.
I even sent the author a rather embarrassing, super hyped, "OMG I loved it so much" raving fangirl email!!
But oh-my-gosh I have.
I have seriously fallen in love with this entire series.

As with the previous two books in the Time Spirit trilogy, author Melissa Pearl has woven a completely engrossing tale of Gemma and Harrison's love, dastardly acts of murder and betrayal, and a

Pure Blood is the last and final book in the Time Spirit Trilogy. While some may say that the 2nd and 3rd book in a series are never as good as the 1st, they would absolutely be wrong in this case. Pure Blood is STUPENDOUS!

Melissa Pearl does an amazing job again with this final installment. Winding the initial drama into an adventure slam packed with so much suspense you will not be able to put the book down. All the while she keeps you guessing as to the ending.

However the ending – there is a h

WOW, like seriously, WOW! I'm devastated that this series has finished. I could happily read about Gemma, Harrison and Gabe for the rest of my life. This is one of the best YA urban fantasy series I have EVER read. Can you tell I loved it? I HIGHLY recommend this book, and the two that preceded it. The Time Spirit series is just amazing. I loved all the twists and turns, the fights (its always good to have a bit of ass kicking isn't it?), the love element (I cried... yes, I really cried) and the ...more

Best ending to this series, it left me crying.

Wow! Melissa Pearl is a mad genius, a master at her craft, and this remarkable author has successfully left me with my jaw on the ground. Oh the twists and turns and suspenseful journey that she has led her readers on. Pure Blood is one of the most thought provoking, emotional, and epic stories I've ever had the chance to experience. The shock that I am still in from the last few events of the book have left me awestruck. I'm at a loss for how to ex

Pure blood is the third and final book in the Time Spirit Trilogy. I read the first one two months ago, then picked up the second one and after finishing it I immediately picked up Pure Blood because I couldn't wait to find out how this Melissa Pearl will conclude this addicting trilogy! I can't lie, I really grew fond of Gemma, the protagonist, Harrison, and especially Gabe, it was sad to see that there will be no more books about them The ending was also a bit bittersweet, though it was a very ...more

This is the third and final (for now) book in the Time Spirit series, which finally answers the question that has been threaded throughout books one and two - what are Gemma's parents up to?

I have to say that I was surprised! I'm not sure what I expected, but it wasn't this - it's fabulous when an author can surprise the reader, and I felt like Melissa did. The escalation of violence and erratic behaviour from her parents, and the exchange student they planted into Gemma's life made things very

{my thoughts} - This book picks up where the last had let out. It filled with angst, betrayal, deceit, love, admiration, and loyalty. Gemma is forced to trust her gut or trust what she had been raised to believe as a child when it comes to her and her family. She never fully understood the point of her travels, why she always had to be with and if there was a reason that the entire family had always participated.

A lot of the questions you have as a reader get answered in this third book. This bo

Melissa Pearl has truly captured me with her Time Spirit trilogy. The story continues and sadly ends with Pure Blood. In Pure Blood Melissa Pearl has shown what a brilliant writer she is. She still is able to keep readers on the edge of their seats with all the twists and turns throughout. In Pure Blood Gemma finally finds out the truth behind her parents' plans. Bringing in Simeon, a gorgeous Californian an exchange student just might bring their plans to completion. Gemma and Harrison now face ...more

Okay so you know at the end of a really good boook series and you've got that goofy smile on your face that you hope your roommate doesn't see cause she'll make fun of u, and then u get a little bit upset cause u realize there's no more books? Well this was that kind of series for me. It doesn't happen often but man did this book deliver. I thought it was a great finish to a brillant journey and I was pleasently surprised with the ending and felt all the character stories were wrapped up beautif ...more

I am always stressed by the last book in a series, because things get Soooo crazy!! If you have read my review on the first book you will see that I Loved this whole story. It was great and I will admit that I started reading this yesterday and am done. That is when you know it was great....when things get pushed aside and maybe ignored a little because you just can't put the book down. Once again I loved Gemma and Harrisons story. Things got crazy and it always amazes me and makes me Happy, Hap ...more

Another amazing cover and fantastic story to get lost in.
Books don't get better than this.
Gemma and Harrison's story continues and life gets very complicated for both as events spiral out of control. Gemma has to make the ultimate sacrifice, but as you read the book you know that is the only possible option. In an interesting twist we also find out more about Harrison's past and what makes him special.
Love it. Love this series, it was fantastic!

I enjoyed this story! Gemma/Lucia's a very strong and selfless girl! Harrison is so right for her! I love Gemma's dad! The ending made sense to me, but you have to read it to see if you agree!

My only thing was that I didn't get the very last sentence and it bugs me! There are still questions that I didn't get answers to, but that didn't stop my enjoyment of the book!

Overall, it was a good series...there was only one twist I didn't see coming - I could slap myself for not seeing it!! I was still in Gemma slapping mode in this one too but in the end everything was solved and the right people prevailed. Gemma did get her HEA but not in the conventional way you would hope for....

I loved Pure Blood. It was a great read—plot twists, romance, and action. And a perfect end to a wonderful series. I’m sorry to say good-bye to Harrison and Gemma, but their story will stay in my heart. Thanks, Ms. Pearl! I can’t wait for your next series.

I really enjoyed reading the last book to the Trilogy. Another very exciting story, which kept me guessing to the end. It was sad to say good-bye to the characters - you feel like you know them so well by now. Fantastic writing ! Would highly recommend.

Another great read from Melissa Pearl that I couldn't put down. A real page turner that kept me guessing till the end. The trilogy is a fantastic combination of action, love, history, and a unique time-travel storyline. I love the characters and hope there might be a future installment for them.
