A lot of fun, very interesting read

Set after the Apocalypse, where Judgement Day arrived, but the world did not end, "Bloodring" follows a rogue neo-mage, Thorn St. Croix, as she tries to hide her heritage among the "normals" that populate what has become of the United States.

Set after the Apocalypse, where Judgement Day arrived, but the world did not end, "Bloodring" follows a rogue neo-mage, Thorn St. Croix, as she tries to hide her heritage among the "normals" that populate what has become of the United States.

Thorn St. Croix's magic is with stones, which she incorporates (secretly, of course), into her rock and gem business. When her ex-husband disappears, a very attractive policeman, Thaddeus Bartholomew appears to accuse St. Croix of kidnapping. The resulting search for her ex-husband, complete with appearances of Seraphs, demons, and feats of magic above and beyond what St. Croix knew she was capable of, beyond what any neo-mage should be capable of, is very gripping, and well-written. Save yourself multiple trips to the bookstore, get "Bloodring", "Seraphs" and "Host" all at once; once you start, you'll want them all.

    A different style

    Overall, enjoyable after you get involved in the story. This book was a little tough to get into as the premise was blurry for the first few chapters. Once you become involved with the characters and the future world of the story, it actually was interesting and enjoyable. I would recommend this for anyone who doesn't mind first person, and enjoys sci fi.

    Good read

    This book was a good purchase, the beginning was very hard to get through because it didnt hook my attention but after the first ten pages or so it was good.

    Fighting Against Evil Never Gets Old

    I picked this book at random off the bookstore shelf because its front cover was very appealing. As it turned out, I enjoyed the book much more than I thought I would when I first brought it home. The characters are very real and have multiple dimensions to them. The plot is interesting and kept the pages turning. The end of the book sets itself up for a sequel, which there are several. I can't bring myself to buy the other books in the series but this one was excellent.

    Good book

    Slow start for me but as I wrapped my mind around the subject I became more interested and looking forward to the next book in the series.

    A little slow

    It was hard to get past the first half of the book. I have not ever read a post-apocalyptic book before, which may have been the reason for my lack of interest. Pushing through the slow beginning rewarded me with a more emotional ending. Finally giving me a reason to feel connected to the characters and what was happening to them. I have just finished the second, and can't wait to begin the third.
