Time and Blood by Sherry Rentschler

HAPPY RELEASE DAY!

 

I have been waiting for over a year for this book to come out for real. It was truly worth the wait. Sherry has created a world that feels so real, sometimes I forget I’m reading fiction and I can’t just walk out my front do and see these characters. Her three-dimensional characters are so solid I half expect to get Christmas cards from them. I love them. Her women are strong and if you’ve read many of my posts, you know that means a lot to me. She blends folklore and mythology with her own diabolical twists and kept me turning the pages to hurry towards the end because I HAD to know what happened next. The dialog is spot on and serves to not only drive the plot forward but also helps “show” the reader instead of “telling” the reader. My only complaint with this book is due to the high level of detail she includes I know it will be awhile before I get to see this group of paranormal beings again.

  1. I love it when an author can suck me into their world so thoroughly – although it is disconcerting to look up and find your own mess 😉
