    Pure blood is the third and final book in the Time Spirit Trilog

    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 satisfying ending! It is just a bit hard to get around the whole time traveling and changing the past, therefore the present and future, but I loved it!

    Pure blood picks up where we left off in Black Blood and since my reviews are always spoil free, I won't be able to tell you where huh? Anyways the third book centers more on Harrison and Gemma's relationship and also gives us more backstory to some of the other characters, including Gemma's parents. We also get another 'love interest' for Gemma that was brought by her parents. That was the only aspect in the book that I did not enjoy that much, I just felt that Harrison's jealousy was a bit unnecessary. However I was all for him being protective. Gemma's parents? oh boy, did I want to strangle them, the word 'overprotective' is an understatement! Even though Gemma turns 18, they still control every aspect of her life and wow, were they suffocating! We also don't get much of Dom and Ruby which is sad but we do get a lot of Gabe and I totally love him. Gabe was like her guardian, the one that showed her the truth and taught her how to really protect herself.

    Overall Pure was a great conclusion to this amazing trilogy, it was filled with gasp worthy moments and the ending is just fantastic! throughout the book I was wondering how in the world will Milessa Pearl be able to end this whole mess we had, but I loved it! It wasn't the cliched ending, and I always salute an author that takes the unconventional route with endings. Thank you Melissa for providing such great enjoyment with this trilogyy, and I really can't recommend it enough to all you readers!

    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 express how much The Time Spirit Books have meant to me and how sad I am to see this trilogy end (maybe I'm lucky and she will turn it into more than a trilogy). I know you're reading this Melissa, what do you say?

    Ok, I'm done gushing, not really.

    In all seriousness I think Pure Blood is the best ending for the series, it was perfect, more than perfect even. The events that lead up to the conclusion left only one possible ending, as heart wrenching as it was to read (I'm sure it was hard to write as well) it was beautifully done.

    As this is a book 3 in the Time Spirit books I HIGHLY recommend reading Golden Blood and Black Blood first. It's not a series that can be read out of order, the build up to this book will be completely lost on anyone who doesn't experience the story in order.

    The mounting suspense that has been featured throughout books 1 and 2 is met with closure in Pure Blood. We finally learn the events from Gemma's past and how she came to be with her family. The reader is faced with shocking truths and a hard to digest ending that still has me reeling. Melissa writes stories to be absorbed in, I am mesmerized when I read her prose and it makes it very hard to put her books down (which may be why I didn't until they were done).

    I love the relationship of Gemma and Harrison, they are young but mature, independent and involved. It's fun to think back to where the series, and their relationship, started and where they have all ended up. My favorite line of the book comes from a conversation between Gabe and Harrison, "It takes a special kind of man to care for a strong woman. She needs you more than you know." And, I just love that. Gemma is strong, but in so many ways I see her as equally weak. She needs Harrison more than anything, I think he keeps her grounded.

    Gabe is probably my favorite character in the books. He is vulnerable yet indestructible. I love when parents have positive roles in YA books, I think it's really important. Gemma and Gabe's relationship is a great one, and the relationship between Gabe and Harrison is wonderful as well.

    I won't say anything else as to not give anything more away. Besides, if you've read Golden Blood and Black Blood chances are this one is already in your hands. :)

    Thank you to Melissa for this amazing opportunity to read this fun and fascinating series of yours!

    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 fantasy side of the characters having to hop back in time were all fantastic. I am now officially one of Melissa Pearl's biggest fans.

    Man, I LOVE this author.

    Pure Blood is a fabulous finale to the Time Spirit Trilogy. The entire series is well conceived, well plotted and well written.

    In this book, Gemma discovers just how far her "surrogate" parents will go to advance their ambitious plans. In order to stop them, Gemma and Harrison are faced with difficult choices that lead to the ultimate sacrifice - their love. Yet, somehow, amazingly, the author manages to pull a beautiful HEA out of her hat.

    Bravo, Melissa Pearl. I can't wait for your next writing project.

    Gemma and Harrison enter their final school year with the ever i

    Gemma and Harrison enter their final school year with the ever increasing possibility that Gemma's parents will discover that Harrison does not only still exist but is also still having a very serious relationship with Gemma. Gemma and Harrison must also find out why Harrison's mother has suddenly turned on Gemma and when they do, Gemma must find a way to turn the situation around. When the exchange student, Simeon, arrives to lodge with Gemma and her family, things are bound to get extremely difficult for her and Harrison.

    I was touched by the gentleness and purity of the romantic relationship between Harrison and Gemma, but, can such a lovely relationship outlast the antagonism of Gemma's so-called parents? When multiple lives seem poised on the edge of ruin and an innocent dies, will Gemma be able to make the ultimate sacrifice?

    Although I thoroughly enjoyed the first two books in the series, I simply could not put this one down. Apart from the nonstop suspense, this book took me on an emotional roller coaster ride. I went from shouting encouragement and sitting on the edge of my chair with anticipation, to grabbing handfuls of Kleenex. Romance, suspense and truly tear-jerking moments; this book has it all. The brilliantly portrayed characters and the regular dates, given to keep the reader on track, brings a unique realism to the story; something which is very handy in a time travel novel. With never a dull moment in the story, the author kept me guessing right up to the end.

    Once again I want to advise readers to get hold of “Golden Blood” and “Black Blood” - the first two books in this trilogy - before reading “Pure Blood”. As this is the last book in the Time Spirit Trilogy, I was sad to say good bye to all these characters. “Pure Blood” is more than deserving of 5 stars and I sincerely hope that Melissa Pearl will soon have some more wonderful books for us book-hungry readers to look forward to.

    Perfect End to a Trilogy

    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 the hardest decision of their relationship. Do they have what it takes to stop the plan becoming complete or will they fail? Readers will be at the edge of their seats and pulled onto an emotional roller coaster as they read. Time Spirit Trilogy, Golden Blood, Black Blood and Pure Blood are a MUST READ for anyone.
