For a long time, I stayed away from this novel. I remember reading a bad review somewhere that slammed the theology in it. Well, I happen to win it in a giveaway Tabitha was doing in celebration of the cover reveal for book two and… I’m so glad that I did not stay in that place of NOT reading it because I seriously enjoyed this story! The sarcasm and snarkiness between Zoe and her Aunt is hilarious. One of the best parts of this story for sure. As a friend of mine mentioned while we read this book together, it has some amazing dialogue that is not only insightful and thought-provoking, but also brings a smile to your face. One of the things I greatly appreciated was how the author wrote this story. All of the characters (well except maybe the guardian) were very relatable. Zoe makes references that if I were in her shoes at the same age, would be saying something similar. There is a real clash between her life at high school and her life as a demon slayer. It made it all so believable! One thing I want to mention is that I had not expected to be hit so powerfully by Zoe’s compassion and a conversation between Daniel and Zoe about supporting one another. I was greatly encouraged and inspired to support those that are alongside me and those who are not. This line from Daniel sums it up perfectly: “We can’t always be there fighting side by side, but we can be there for each other" (pg. 70). Overall, this is a great urban fantasy/paranormal read for YA readers that has very relatable characters and thought-provoking conversations. Really looking forward to book two!

**read AGAIN in January 2017...Another five stars after reading the second time, Caplinger GETS what makes a great story and her sense of humor/faith shines through her characters!!** **have to wait for NOVEMBER for this awesome looking book!!! well, am sure it's worth it :) ** WHAT a great book! Maggie was my favorite character, she was an amazing friend and made me smile :) Aunt Claire was the coolest aunt ever! Loving, funny, kicks shadow butt, and a great sense of humor despite the intensity of the story. Zoe was amazing.....losing her parents and then adjusting to a move, all the while having a tremendous heart. I was very satisfied with the ending here. Really good story, was totally worth the wait! Caplinger is definitely getting new readers and I'm one of them!

Review also posted at: http://underthebookcover.blogspot.com/2016/12/book-review-chronicle-of-three.html 4.5/5 Thank you to Tabitha Caplinger for providing me with a copy of this book! I came across this book by absolute chance one day and happened to end up winning a wonderful giveaway from the author, Tabitha Caplinger, which included some very cute book swag as well as a copy of this book. It took me a bit to get to, not because I didn't want to read it but because I had several books already in progress, but I'm so happy I was finally able to pick it up. Once I finally made the decision to read it, I found myself unable to put it down. Having to deal with the loss of her parents was the most that Zoe Andrews thought she would have to endure. When her aunt packs everything up and moves them to the small town of Torchcreek, Virginia in attempts to get a fresh start, Zoe is hesitant but tries to stay positive. Once she starts to see things that she can't explain, she's sure that the death of her parents is driving her mad- but it's not. Zoe eventually discovers that she's part of an ancient bloodline that is destined to defeat the powers of darkness from destroying the world. As if that wasn't enough, she's also a Daughter of the Three, which is much more than just a descendant- she's the key to the salvation of humanity. Let me start this off by saying that if the idea of a "christian fantasy trilogy" has thrown you off, please give this book a chance. As a personal choice, I don't read any books that have to do with religion of any form; it's just not my preference when it comes to my reading decisions. Yes, this book references things such as "the Maker," angels, demons, etc. but it is far from trying to be preachy or shove religion down the readers throat. When I first got my hands on it, I truthfully read it with almost no idea what it was about because I wanted to go into it completely blind. To be honest, this just reads as a fantastic young adult paranormal book. There's action, a small bit of romance, some comic relief, pie, and a really fantastic plot that will have you turning the pages as fast as you can. This is such a beautiful book and I highly encourage anyone and everyone to give it a chance! Zoe was such a fantastic character and I loved watching her transformation from beginning to end. She's struggling to deal with the death of her parents and moving to a new town, as well as the fact that she can now see creepy shadowy demons. The way that she handles things when she finds out about her bloodline is just wonderful. Yes, she's freaked out, but the very first thing that she ends up doing is helping out a girl that is being tormented by the shadows. She saves her and befriends her and that is the beginning of one of the greatest friendships that I have ever read about. Maggie is an absolute joy and she brings so much light and positivity into Zoe's life, something that is definitely needed while she's fighting off demons! All of the characters in this book are so well-written and really fit in to the story, as well as compliment each other. Check out the rest of my review at the link above!

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review This book lacked depth in a lot of its aspects such as the multiple cliches, bland characters, and underdeveloped plot. The plot really didn't go into much background of anything causing the focal point of this book to be "she's special because she's the chosen one and that's it." I cringed every time the words, "THE CHOSEN ONE" showed up. (and it was a lot) Throughout the book they were pretty much training to fight demons (who seemed pretty weak) without giving the readers a proper reason to hate and truly know the villains. (view spoiler) A good villain can make an entire book. In this novel, we were given no information about the demons. So the fact that Zoe was able to kill several of them so quickly really erased all respect I had for them. They felt like disposable puppets. There was a very straight-forward "good and evil" side going on. Yes, I enjoyed the different point of views from Lucas, but we never really got to know the evil forces that were behind him. They were just known as pure evil and we got nothing much more than that. The characters all seemed very one dimensional to me. They all spoke and acted as though they were the same person. There were moments where the actions of the characters felt forced and didn't flow naturally because these actions were there only to tell the reader "I have a unique personality!" It was when the focus wasn't on certain characters where their facades dropped and it felt like all of these characters were the same. We weren't given background of almost anyone and when we were, it felt weak. In the summary of the book it's not told that we follow two main characters, Claire and Zoe, instead of just one. Claire seemed like a strong lead with an interesting past, but we're told nothing about it. It's always hinted at but then nothing comes of it. Then Zoe plays the naive new girl who suddenly has a knack for demon-hunting because she's the chosen one. We were given so little information about Zoe that it was as if she didn't even have a life before moving to this new place. At times she didn't even feel like the main character because she blended in with Daniel and Maggie so much. If these novels just revolved around Aunt Claire after this book I wouldn't be surprised. There were many underlying messages I enjoyed such as those feelings of worthlessness people have and how God is always there. I give props to Caplinger for including religion in this book because it can sometimes be difficult to bring your faith into writing. Fairth really was the core of what Caplinger was trying to say but she tried throwing in some supernatural demons to make the story seem cooler. I am well aware that this is only the first book. But, questions appeared that were never answered. The world of shadows and demons felt poorly explained. Readers were only given information about relevant demons but nothing else. It felt like the prophecy and background of everything was barely touched upon. (Aunt Claire's past, why there are two daughters, what is the desert?, etc.)

The Chronicle of the Three: Bloodline is the first book in a trilogy by the Christian author, Tabitha Caplinger. The story follows Zoe as she discovers there’s more to life than the typical routine of school, friends, and family, and that she belongs to a line of ancient warriors destined to save the world from destruction. Intriguing dialogue, suspenseful action sequences, and strong characterization make this an exceptional story and a fun and exciting read. I recommend The Chronicle of the Three: Bloodline for fans of young adult literature and for anyone who enjoys tales of supernatural adventure.

Loved this book! It combined the Davinci Code theories with Buffy the Vampire action. It is not the type of book that I usually read, but I could not put it down and am excited to read the next book in the series!
