I voluntarily received an ARC of Bloodthorn by Tamara Grantham in exchange for an honest review. Tamara Grantham has created the perfect adult fantasy series. The Olive Kennedy series combines romance, adventure, and mystery to create a magical story that I can't get enough of. I grow to love these characters a little more with each new book. Seeing Olive and Kull struggle to cope with the loss each of them have experienced made my heart ache for them. I really missed Kull's sense of humor and charismatic personality in Bloodthorn. I am starting to warm up to Heidel and actually like her. A part of me things she and Brodnik would work well together as a couple. I think she deserves a happy ending after everything she has been through in the past. I can't wait to see how each character's story progresses in the next book.

With each new installment, I find myself getting more immersed and addicted to this series. I read this book back in April of 2016, but I never got around to reviewing it. So I decided to review it, but I had to reread it to fully give my opinion. I found I still like this book, even though Kull’s rough attitude frustrated me at times. Don’t get me wrong, I still love him, and I still find him humorous, especially in regards to his love for Dr Pepper. I love that this book expanded on the background of some of the characters. Take for example, Brett. We got to see a different side of him in this story, and it made him more likeable, versus the opinion I first had of him in Dreamthief. To me, this proves that each character is multifaceted and not one dimensional, even if they are not main characters in the story. I don’t want to give too much away, but let me repeat something I’ve said before in regards to this series; each book is a surprise. In a good way. I pride myself on usually being able to guess who is the character responsible for all the bad things that happen, but I never seem to be able to do that with this series. I get close, I always guess the accomplice, but never the main person. As for Olive, I feel for her, I really do. She can’t seem to catch a break! Whether it involves saving Faythander or trying to fix her love life, it always seems that there is something causing her problems. I feel like she deserves a nice, long vacation. Bloodthorn gets 4/5 Platypires!

Although this is the third book in the series, it's as exciting and gripping as the first. Olive has decided to stay on Earth and put all the pain of Faythander behind her as best as she can. But her magic is getting more and more unpredictable, and she start to hallucinate several of her Wult friends in the crowds around her. When a ritual murder happens in her store and black magic pores from the crime scene, her hopes of living a somewhat normal life are squished again. This book takes off after the emotional ending of book two, with a heart-broken Olive trying to get her life back in grip. This is not a book that can be read as a stand-alone, since her emotional scars and how she's dealing with them from the last adventure are what ground this story right away. Olive's pain is tangible, and she's coping like a champ. When the world crashes down around her, it's hard not to feel right along with her. But her fighting spirit and determination to still concentrate on what needs to be done make her easy to cheer for. The plot is well woven, and although Olive is forced to save the world again, it isn't regurgitated. There surprises are unexpected and fall just at the right times to keep the flow going. But then, there aren't many slow moments anyway. The monster is creepy, the danger clear and the scenes eerie. When it comes to the fights, Olive and her companions may or may not win-which keeps the tension and uncertainty high until the very end. The romance is wonderfully frustrating, and it's hard to decide if Olive would be better off with or without her hero. But the actions from both parties are understandable and never forced. Summed up, this is a fast-paced read for strong heroine fans who love magic and fantasy worlds along with a romance, which has to be fought for. And I can't wait to dive into the next book. I received a complimentary copy and enjoyed it so much that I wanted to leave my thoughts.

After finishing Spellweaver with a big old "WHAT HAPPENS NEXT FOR THEM?" question burning in my mind. You can bet that I was anxious to get started on Bloodthorn. Just as with the first two in the series, Bloodthorn opens with action and does not stop. Well-written, the mystery and suspense pours from page after page, leaving you turning them as fast as you can read them. The plot twists and turns take you by surprise, all in a good way that just makes you want it to go on forever. While there is a side to Kull that makes you want to drop kick him throughout the first part of the novel (you understand why he's acting like he does, but still you want to shake your fists in the air at him . . . admittedly, I might have actually done it.), Olive SHINES from beginning to end. And speaking of the end, Kull redeems himself. From the first page to the last page, this novel didn't disappoint! Well, except for when it ended and I was done with the book. Can I just say I can't wait for the next one? And I'm hoping for several more! This series is a must read!

Bloodthorn, Book 3 of the Olive Kennedy Fairy World MD, by Tamara Grantham is a wonderful conclusion to this outstanding series. Olive has been home for about 10 months since her last adventures in Faythander, is just as broke as always, and has chosen to rent a booth at the Houston Ren Faire and live on-site in a camper. Then something strange happens. A large yellow tent appears in the empty field behind her rented camper. Inside she finds Fairy royalty and their Wult guards, including a certain King Olive hasn't seen since she left Faythander. More danger and mayhem ensues as Olive tracks down the Bloodthorn, a being of unsurpassed evil.
