Description

Atlanta has become the battlefield between human and demon. All her life, Evalle Kincaid has walked the line between the two. Her origins unknown, she's on a quest to learn more about her past...and her future.

When a demon claims a young woman in a terrifying attack and there's no one else to blame, Evalle comes under suspicion. Now she's on a deadly quest for her own survival. Through the sordid underground of an alternate Atlanta where nothing is as it seems to the front lines of the city, where her former allies have joined forces to hunt her, Evalle must prove her innocence or pay the ultimate price.

But saving herself is the least of her problems if she doesn't stop the coming apocalypse. The clock is ticking and Atlanta is about to catch fire....

    Evalle spent the first 18 years of her life locked in a dark basement. Today she tracks down the monsters that threaten humankind. However she herself is an Alterant, capable of turning into a monster and wreaking havoic and therefore not fully accepted by her kin, the Beladors. Mediocre.

    I really wanted to like this story but it somehow left me wanting more. I like Sherrilyn Kenyon as a writer, I chew through her Dark Hunter novels like they're crack but somehow this one left me feeling a bit wanting. I loved Evalle, and her pet gargoyle and liked how she had some male friends that were like brothers, not like love interest and they treated her like a friend and like someone who needed minding. And there was a hint of a love interest that didn't involve sex within five minutes of meeting, but it just somehow felt flat. Evalle is a Alterant, a half-Belador half-probably human who lives under suspicion because every other Alterant has gone crazy and uncontrolable and killed people. Beladors hunt demons and keep humanity safe, she lives with a constant threat of being locked up, for her and everyone else's safety. Her friends are sure this isn't going to happen to her but they're afraid for her.A stone appears in the world and this stone is pivotal, it could mean the end of the world, or it could be a great force for good. when it falls into the wrong hands. Evalle and all her friends have to work together to find it.Seriously the management in these books need to look at some books about winnning friends and influencing people, too much stick and not enough carrot!Readable but I'm in no great rush to find the next one.

    I wanted to get into this book but it is just to much like every single other book like it I have read. I needed something to make it stand apart and I just couldn't find it.

    OK, I am just going to review the book with no summary because I can't think of a way to do a short summary of this book. First let me say that I love urban fiction. This book however has way more para than normal and usually I find that a turn off. Somehow this book just hit the spot with me. All the world building seemed to fall into place despite all the different types of creatures, witches and weres. Not to mention all the Gods. There was lot of action and characters that you could get involved with. Evalle, the main character, is fun to read. She is angsty and paranoid and unaware of her own strenghts. She is untrusting but has more friends than she thinks. She has to figure out who she can trust to navigate the task that is set before her and hopefully survive. I will definitely be reading the second. I hope I still like the complicated world.

    I went into this book totally expecting not to like it, but totally loved it. I received this book as a review copy. The day I got it my mom took it home with her since I was reading other stuff. She brought it back the next day and didn't speak very highly of it. I picked it up that night anyway wanting to find out what she didn't like about it since we usually have the same taste. The story moved at a fast pace and was interesting. In the first chapter you’re not quite sure what’s going on I kept thinking this can't be the first book but it is. This is what my mom didn't like she thought there was not enough explanation in the beginning. You’re not quite sure what Evalle Kincaid is you know she is part Belador but not what else is mixed in her blood. She is on the fringe of Belador society treated as an outcast and lucky to not be in a cage. She finds herself being framed for the murder of a young girl and only has a couple of days to solve the murder or she will be caged. There are however more pressing matters also going. Evalle and her fellow warriors must find a stone before it causes a war that will eradicate her people. What I didn’t like was a problem I have with many urban fantasy or paranormal romances. At some point in Evalle’s life she has been sexually assaulted by a doctor who used to take care of her. Why I ask does the main character have to be sexually abused or raped for her to be a strong character who will never let anyone get them down again. Why can’t she just be a kick as Belador because that’s who she is. Women can have inner strength without some major life altering event like rape. Shame on your Dianna Love and Sherrilyn Kenyon. She could have been exactly the same person because of the was she was treated by her people without the teenage sexual assault. Overlooking the past sexual assault I really and truly enjoyed this book. I can't wait to read the next book to find out who Evalle ends up with.

    Review courtesy of All Things Urban FantasyTwo authors collaborating on a single book can either produce something extraordinary as in the case of all the Ilona Andrews books or something truly abysmal as in the case of BLOOD TRINITY.Oh wow is this book a mess. Two authors apparently means no editor. The writing is clunky and extremely redundant. Did these authors not communicate at all? It’s almost as if they each wrote this story and instead of editing the best parts from each into a single book, they just shuffled the scenes together so that every bit of information gets relayed twice, or even three times:"...She'd have to come up with a believable reason for taking off to meet [name omitted] by four thirty, which was only a few hours away.And before that she needed to come up with a reason why her aura wasn't human. Luckily [name omitted]’s phone had buzzed less than a heartbeat after his declaration that her aura didn't appear human. She had no idea what it'd been about, but it'd caused him to excuse himself and take off immediately.She had a couple hours to come up with some way to explain her nonhuman aura." –BLOOD TRINITY pg. 218And the whole book is like that. Worse still, it’s totally confusing. in 500+ pages the basic world is never explained. What’s a Belador? Couldn’t tell you. What’s an Alternant? Not real clear on that either. Maybe all of that got explained in the super secret novella that was released in 2008 but no where alluded to in this book?Beyond the embarrassing writing, the book was a mess of clichéd characters and mismatched mythology. BLOOD TRINITY opens with a cool introduction and bonding between three supernatural characters: Evalle, a mutt Alterant (half Belador, half ?) and two full Beladors. I assumed theses three would be the leads in the book. Nope. Evalle is the protagonist but the other two get relegated to tiny mental phone calls and maybe one or two actual scenes. Maybe they’ll be getting their own books in this series.I thought at least I’d get a good romance out of BLOOD TRINITY, I mean this is a Sherrilyn Kenyon book. Wrong again. The only positive thing I can say about this book is that the plot never drags. There are plenty of supernatural action scenes that inject some much needed life into this otherwise totally botched paranormal thriller. More books are planned for this series starting with EVE OF DESCTRUCTION in Fall 2011. I can only hope they get better.Sexual Content: References to rape. Kissing.

    Evalle is an anomaly among anomalies. She has a heritage that links her to the Belador tribe, but is treated like an outcast because of her lack of pure blood. To others she is known as an Alterant. This is the name given to half-breed Beladors who have the ability to shift into a beast and endanger society. Evalle has no idea what else her genetic makeup is composed of. She was raised by an aunt who kept her locked in the basement, and her lips sealed shut when it came to questions about Evalle’s absent parents. Evalle now works for an organization that helps to keep the non-humans in Atlanta under control. She also continues to try to prove herself to her tribe. Evalle is constantly trying to show them she isn’t like the others that have been locked away, and that she has control over the beast inside her. Now a suspicious murder has taken place, and Evalle will have to prove yet again she wasn’t involved, while also preventing the foreseen destruction of the world as she knows it.Main character Evalle is definitely a card carrying member of the Badass Chick Club. Not only does she ride a motorcycle and have a gargoyle for a pet, but she takes crap from no one. I loved her sassiness, and how she continually gave those that wanted to take her down the finger (figuratively speaking of course), all while showing little regard for the position of authority they held My favorite part is that underneath the tough exterior she was a bit of a softie when it comes to those she holds dear. Always true to her word, and willing to do anything to save a friend or the tribe who merely tolerated her. This book had a lot of characters. Some may consider this a fault, but I felt the authors did what was needed to set us up for a very intricate world. With over 500 pages full of nonstop action, character backgrounds, and world building we get a very extensive look into the alternate Atlanta. Imagine my surprise when I reached the end as quickly as I did. I didn’t want to put this one down, and the 500+ pages flew by. My only complaint, and what held me back from giving it 5 stars is that at times I felt like I was missing “something”. When a few of the characters were introduced I felt like I should be aware of their past relationships with other characters. It had me wondering if this was a spinoff of another series. While browsing Ms. Love’s website, I discovered there is a short story featuring characters from Blood Trinity. I plan to track down a copy so I can get a little more background on the characters in this series.In Blood Trinity, Dianna Love and Sherrilyn Kenyon have teamed up to bring us an exciting new Urban Fantasy series. They took the Urban Fantasy genre and made it their own with preternatural characters I haven’t seen in other UF novels. I loved the pet gargoyle, Feenix, even if he had a bit of a potty mouth ;) The world they all inhabit was brilliantly complex. Filled with fiction as well as references to the lore of many different cultures. Blood Trinity is s a fascinating read that kept me turning the pages wanting more. I’m eager to see where this series takes us next.

    As a big fan of Sherrilyn Kenyon's I was very excited to hear about this new series with the popular Dianna Love. Blood Trinity is the first book in the Belador Series and I have to say that I was blown away by this book. I literally sat down and did not stop reading till I was done with it (and by that time it was almost 3am on a work night). The world building was amazing - it was so unique and detailed that you could get lost in that alone. The characters Evalle, Tzader, Quinn, and a few others were unforgettable. And although I would not call this a romance, the little inkling of romance that was interspersed in the storyline was irresistible. The story is action-packed with all sorts of danger, twists and turns. It was absolutely amazing and one that I would whole-heartedly recommend to fans of urban fantasy and sci-fi. A great read!
