I read High Child because it sounded interesting. Special abilities and a murder mystery...right up my alley. I was surprised to find out that the "visitors" mentioned in the book's blurb were from another planet. Science fiction is a broad category, and I expected something different. However, I enjoyed reading High Child. I may not have chosen to read it had I known what it was about, which would have been my loss because this is an excellent sto

This is the second book I have read from J.T. Bishop. Royce has two sisters and they are all half human. They all have special abilities. His father is from the planet Eudora and is the High Councilor there. They are many people from his planet that want to kill him because he is the son of the ruler of the planet now and he is considered the High Child who can now rule the planet after his father's death or if he steps down. It is like any other kingdom there is always another family member tha ...more

I thoroughly enjoyed this mystery sci fi thriller. Part of the Red-Line Saga this is the second book from the series I have read. They can be read independently. This book concentrates on the eldest of the triplets, Royce. He lives in relative isolation in a cabin he built himself, he chooses to live this way as it allows him to practice his abilities, these we discover as the story evolves. There is a murder or two, a scared teenage boy and an isolated young woman. Then there are extra terrestr ...more

This was a new author for me. This is also the fifth book in the series. I was able to follow along just fine. I loved the setting in this book. This author does and awesome job keeping the tension going throughout the story. I was drawn in from the very beginning. Royce is a man who has several abilities. Gus is his friend and knows about those “gifts”. The book starts out with a murder. It then switches to two people trying to blend in to a culture they are not familiar with. Add to this mix t ...more

Woohoo!! It's no secret that I am a HUGE fan of J.T Bishops writing, but this book takes the cake!

First, I LOVED that there's a guest appearance from my favorite characters from the original 3 books! Super exciting to see them again, if only briefly.

One of my favorite aspects to Bishops writing is her knack for infusing science fiction into a believable plot. And somehow, she even makes the RedLine prophecy seem legit, like could be living among red and grey lines! (I wish!- I'd you haven't rea

What you should know is that High Child is the fifth book in the Red-Line series of books; however, I read this as a stand-alone novel and let me start this review off by saying that you do not need to have read any of its prequels to follow this book. It is one of those books that is really easy to pick up and follow. The way Bishop was able to shift from one person to the next with vivid descriptions and very realistic characters. From the moment I held the book in my hands and read the back b ...more

This is the second book in the Red-Line series I have read and this book was just as good as Curse Breaker if not better. Royce is enjoying life in seclusion after the events in Curse Breaker however it looks like trouble likes to find him and finds himself unwittingly involved in a mysterious murder. I really liked how Royce was continuously torn between being the good guy and doing what is right and wanting to just get the hell out of dodge. There are some great twists, surprises as well as a ...more

High Child combines sci-fi, mystery, and paranormal romance into one suspenseful story. I enjoyed the way the author introduced the characters allowing the story to unfold gently. This story is the fifth is the Red-Line series; however, I had no idea until I finished! 

I recommend High Child to all readers of all the above-mentioned genres. I rate this book with 3.5 Boundless Stars, with the only negative being the story’s slow start. I enjoy books that grab me from the start. It took me to 30% b

If you've enjoyed Red-Line so far, this is definitely something you want to pick up. Royce is an incredibly deep character and man does he get tossed around in this one! If you haven't had the pleasure of reading this series yet, don't let that deter you. J.T. Bishop does a wonderful job of making each story stand on its own and drag you into her world. It's an intense ride for sure. ...more
