Holy Moly what a book!! I can honestly say I have never read a book that even compares to this one, but that doesn't surprise me because as I've said in previous reviews for her other books (which were blow me away awesome) this author has the most creative mind and she absolutely shatters me every time I read one of her stories.

I'm not even going to try to sum this book up, I wouldn't know where to start unless I just copy and paste her syno

Primogénito: A Fuentes Legacy by Greta Cribbs, is a thrilling drama filled story full of twists and turns. This story has so many elements to it, there is love, loyalty, sacrifice, betrayal, jealousy, dark magic, and pain, both physical and psychological.
I was drawn into the the story right away. The four main characters are Ashley, Nick, Jenn and Damian, and they have a special bond because of something horrific that happened in their past. Ashley has come to ask Damien for help, because her h

The book follows the Fuentes family legacy where Ashley's husband Nick has fallen sick to a rather mysterious illness. Nick is having bizarre symptoms and the doctors have no ideas. Fearing for her husbands wellbeing, Ashley turns to Damien Fuentes. Damien's family has dabbled in dark magic in the past, with Damien's grandfather performing a ritual on Nick. Nick's own wife, Jenn, is now also pregnant with their first daughter which is causing even more issues into Damien's past which he now must

Oh boy... where to start with this book. This book is dark and twisted but also full of love and self sacrifice for friends. I liked how the author portrayed the relationship tangles between these friends. Due to some pretty tragic events some friends are scattered not as close as they once were. After several years they come back together to figure out why or what has one of them down amd sick and just acting weird. Really weird. Is the sickness connected to the past.

Primogénito is my first read from author Greta Cribbs, this book has made me want to experience Greta’s other reads, to see what else she can bring us and whether her other reads are just as captivating as this one.

I was really looking forward to reading this book, especially after reading the synopsis. But after reading the first pages I just couldn’t connect with characters or the storyline. I just couldn’t find anything captivating about this book, but then suddenly I found I just couldn’t pu

This was such a great read full of so many twists and turns, and moments that had me going what? I loved it.

There are some stories that would make me cringe and wish I could stop reading, yet I am not able to. This story is one of them. I loved to hate it and would have given it five stars but then try as I might I cannot because of the negativity it exuded.

The plot is dark and revolves around a family and its traditions. There are rebels within such families as well. But for the who, what and how you need to read the story. Trust me when I say, it is not going to be easy.

Hats off to you Greta for pen

Thank you to the author for a copy of this book! As always, all opinions are my own. Check out more of my reviews at

One commenter asked me in a previous post what the title of a book meant, and now I always (usually) remember to share that with you! In this case, primogénito means firstborn, something that is very important in the rituals of the Fuentes’ family. This one gets pretty dark, pretty fast so be prepared for an emotional roller coaster with this book. The e

When Ashley appears on her doorstep, Jenn knows the past has come to hunt her again. Ashley needs Damian's help to save her husband Nick. The four of them share a tragic past and apparently, the consequences of it keep messing with their lives.

This one is a magnificent story that traps you and doesn't let you go until the end. You keep waiting to discover more about the Fuentes family and the magic they supposedly have. The characters move on with the story and nobody stops to tells us what hap

Primogenito: The Fuentes Legacy by Greta Cribbs is a thrilling and gripping tale of mysterious, magic and intrigue.

Four characters are at the heart of the book; Jenn, Damien, Ashley and Nick. With a story going back to their childhood’s and beyond the writer combines a unique perspective of the fantasy genre with deep and complex characters.
With their stories so interlink - a fact which becomes obvious right from page one - you easily find yourself sinking into the mystery that is their story,

This is one of those books that when you are finished, you just look at the wall and ask, “what did I just read?” There are pieces of it that are intriguing and pieces of it that are twisted. It is a bittersweet story with a lot of family drama. (And you thought your in-laws were awful).

Damian has been trying to put the past behind him. He and his wife Jenn have moved to a new area, away from Damian’s family, and started a new life together. It all seems to be going smoothly when a friend from t

Primogenito: The Fuentes Legacy by Greta Cribbs is a story of family, family's believe, and the relationships with the family. This is my first book from Greta Cribbs.Cribbs' writing style is one that captivates you from the first sentence to the last. She sets the story with great descriptions making you feel that you are in the story yourself.

Here is a little warning about this story: It is a mystery paranormal suspense all mix in. I would recommend a reader as a young adult, 16 years and up.

Primogenito The Fuentes Legacy by Greta Cribbs is a very gripping thriller/mystery with a supernatural aspect to the story.

The entire time I was reading this book, I was on the edge of my seat wondering what was going to happen next and what that meant for the characters involved. This book has some wonderful illustrations of friendship, love, selflessness. It also illustrates evil and the lengths evil people will go to make sure they get what they want.

I give Primogénito: The Fuentes Legacy by Greta Cribbs 4 stars.

This was a good, interesting suspense book. There is the general story of the four people, what horrible things they have been through in the past and they soon discover they can't outrun the nightmare. Nick just wanted happily ever after. Now he doesn't know if he will ever get it.

Besides the main story, you have the relationships of these four people to each other. There are many mixed emotions with these people, also making tensio

Primogénito: The Fuentes Legacy by Greta Cribbs is an interesting thriller romance with some paranormal elements too. I was intrigued from the start, and couldn’t put this book down! It was so suspenseful, and a bit of a mystery too. The characters were amazing- Ashley was so strong in her fight to save her husband, and Damien had to overcome the stigma of his family’s legacy. Some people will go to any lengths, sacrifice anything or anyone-to obtain power. There is true evil in the world.

This book appears to be the first in the Fuentes Legacy by Greta Cribbs. I say appears because I got so confused reading the first few chapters that I thought I must have gotten the second in the series or missed a prequel. There are so many references to an incident that happened 5 years in the past but the reader gets almost no information about those events. It was honestly hard for me to even keep up with the story because of how little I knew and how much two of the main characters Damian a ...more
