I found The Blood in the Beginning a refreshing and entertaining read. From the blurb, I started the book expecting vampires. I love vampires; however, it was a pleasant surprise to find they are not the feature creature in this story. Ava is a gritty and likeable heroine, and the two men vying for her interest are likewise engaging and sexy. The pacing at times felt a little jerky - periods of heavy action, followed by a few pages in which little happened - and it takes a while to get to the bottom of who/what everyone is. That, for me, made the ending when it came feel a little rushed, but not to the extent it spoiled my enjoyment of the book overall. If you don't mind a slow build and slow reveal and are looking for a read that offers something a little different from the usual UF fare, then The Blood in the Beginning could well be the book for you. 4.5 stars

I received this book as an eBook review copy from NetGalley.
