As soon as I finished reading Golden Blood, which is the first book in the Time Spirit Trilogy, I HAD to contact the author and let her know how MUCH I loved it! Melissa Pearl was kind enough to give me the second and third book to read and review, and let me tell you, I had my own squealing moment for that. When I finally had the chance to read Black Blood, I just could NOT put it down! I am always scared of sequels not living up to the awesomeness of the first book, but boy, was it as addicting and exciting as Golden Blood. Black Blood gave you some answers while at the same time uncovering more secrets and doubts that keep you reading more and forgetting that you actually have a life outside this fictional world! To start off, You get to find out more about the mysterious man at the end of Golden Blood and I was SO happy with that development! I liked that a new character that was introduced basically tipped Gemma's world 180 degrees and basically gave her the push she needed to finally think for herself. You don't get to see a lot of Harrison in this book and while this might have frustrated me, Melissa Pearl was able to keep me excited and addicted even without such an important character in the story. I loved the build up of the story, sometimes books lose sight of what is important in a book and just have many subplots without a major one. As for the characters, I really did get frustrated with Gemma at the beginning but only because I'm the reader and we all know that readers are the Know-It-Alls (in fiction, not sure about real life) but I had to keep on reminding myself that if it was my parents I would have been as stubborn, if not worse than her. Harrison was a bit mushy mushy to my taste at the beginning but I guess that's how young love is right? as for Gabe, I have to admit that HE was my favorite character in Black Blood. He takes up some of the comic relief from Gemma's twin siblings Dom and Ruby because they don't appear as much in this book. Overall Black Blood was a great sequel that did not disappoint! I would recommend to any fans of time traveling to seriously pick this up! also for all readers because this has a bit of everything, contemporary lovers, this is a good one!

Like most reviewers, I've found sequels to be the hardest books to review. It's difficult to explain why someone should read the second book in a series (or third), if they haven't read book one (especially when I may be giving aspects of book one away). And it's hard to say what I enjoyed about it, if the reader hasn't checked out the predecessor. Therefore, as I say with each of my sequel reviews read book one, Golden Blood, before reading this review or book. And note, I HIGHLY recommend this series!! At the end of Golden Blood Gemma was approached by a stranger, Gabe; and in Black Blood we learn just who he is and want he wants. And, truthfully I was taken by surprise with the change in events. But, so excited for the twist in plot (which Melissa does beautifully). With Gabe's confessions comes a whirlwind of drama for Gemma and her instinct is, like most, to not believe him. But, when her world is shattered he's the only one she knows to turn to. Gemma is strong and capable, and an amazing female lead. I absolutely adore her, and the way she stands up for herself and goes after what she wants. In Black Blood Gemma and Harrison have the chance to let their relationship grow, but they are still bound by Gemma's parents' strict rules. Rules that, understandably, seem barbaric to the young couple. I began to really not like her parents in this book, for reasons that become obvious to any reader. When Penelope and Alistair alter the life of their daughter and attempt to prove once and for all that they have the most control in their family I cried, really cried, in utter disbelief. Their lack of love and compassion is heartbreaking. But, Gemma does everything in her power to fight back, and finally seeks out Gabe. The relationship they create is fun to watch grow. Once again Melissa has dazzled me with her ability to create and mold this world that her characters live in using only words, and make it feel so real. I became lost in her writing, their emotions became my emotions, and with each book this story gets better and better. The build up to book 3 is phenomenal and I know others, like myself, will not stop at book 1. The adventure that began in Golden Blood continues to burn bright throughout this second installment and this is one series I have to see through to the end. Black Blood definitely doesn't suffer from second book syndrome, in fact, I may be so bold as to say I enjoyed it more than the first, but I did love the first. If you've read Golden Blood you must continue with the story, it's one of the best!

After reading Golden Blood, I bought this book immediately. And I fell in love with it even more than the first (if that was physically possible?). Melissa Pearl is an incredibly story teller who has created such a deep, intense story about Gemma and Harrison and their worrying predicament. Its about love, betrayal and family with such a magical fantasy element that it'll blow you away. I absolutely loved this sequel and as soon as I'd finished it, I immediately bought the third!

When you find a great indie author, it's like discovering buried treasure or a new world. And a new world is exactly what Melissa Pearl delivers in her Time Spirit Trilogy series. Amazingly, the second book in this contemporary YA series is even better than the first; and the first was awesome. Again, Gemma is a wonderfully strong but vulnerable heroine. She has the rare ability to travel through time but is being manipulated by a very nasty set of parents who do their best to separate her from Harrison, her other half. It takes every ounce of courage and strength for Gemma to keep him in her life. Of course, Harrison is definitely worth the effort. He's clearly a ten on the yum-boyfriend-scale. Black Blood is so expertly plotted that I couldn't wait to see what happened next and couldn't put the book down. Melissa Pearl is not only a great writer, she's a great storyteller and this is a story that must not be missed. I can't wait to read the third book, Pure Blood.

Melissa Pearl has done it again with Black Blood, book #2 in the Time Spirit Trilogy. I HIGHLY recommend if you have yet to read Golden Blood, book #1 in the Time Spirit Trilogy that you do. Melissa Pearl did not disappoint readers with her writing. In Black Blood you learn about Gabe, the mysterious man from the beach. Gemma and Harrison must decide to trust Gabe or not once they hear his story. When Gemma and her family travel to he past she thinks it's a routine jump through time. How far will Gemma's parents go to protect their interest? What are her parents willing to do in the name of love to protect her? It's too late by the time Gemma finds out not only are they changing the future, but it will have a direct effect on Gemma and Harrison. Now Gemma must trust Gabe even if she doesn't believe his story. Black Blood will keep readers on the edge of their seats as they read and begging for more when it's over.

I would like to begin the review of this excellent book by advising those who have not read Golden Blood, the first in the trilogy, to go back and read that before you read Black Blood. Gemma Heart is trying to enjoy the summer with her boyfriend Harrison Granger, before her senior year. But memories of the strange man on the beach and his warnings haunt and frighten her. Her parents, still not happy with her choice of boyfriend, are also not exactly making things easy for them. The discovery of who exactly Gabe the mysterious man is, throws Gemma into a turmoil bringing into question who she truly is and who her true family is. More questions arise when her father starts acting secretively and going on missions into the past to retrieve the arrow head necklaces of the electus. And why are these expeditions making Gemma so tired? The final straw comes when Gemma is forced to go back with her family to change history; thus not only ruining Gemma's dreams, but also altering the lives of countless others. This brilliantly told story deals with horrific betrayal and extreme selfishness. On the other hand it also shows that true love can survive gruelling tests and frightful disagreements. The characters with their very realistic personalities crept even deeper into my heart during this book. The anxiety and suspense in the story are countered by the tender love scenes between Gemma and Harrison. The author's habit of stating the time and place of each event helped me understand exactly where I was in the story. All this makes Black Blood a comfortably paced and yet enthralling read. I would recommend this book to young adults and adults alike. After reading this book which is more than deserving of its 5 stars, I can't wait to read the next book and hopefully many more by Melissa Pearl. (Ellen Fritz)

This is a very good book. The charcters are well developed and charming.there is zround 500 pages every book, but they were so good i read them very quickly. The first book is free and i highly recomend it. The other books are about 4 dollars btw. It is very easy to get wrapped up in their story of forbidden love, controlling parents, and an amazing heorin.
