7/18/11– RieView: Bloodlines — Skyla Dawn Cameron

Since there was a mix-up today and the review of Prince that was supposed to be a tour stop didn’t post, I thought I would post another RieView of my own. 🙂

BloodlinesBloodlines by Skyla Dawn Cameron
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I really enjoyed Bloodlines. I thought that Ms. Cameron had some interesting deviations from the stereotypical vampire. There were sections of the plot that I thought were a little far-fetched, but they all fit within the parameters of her world as created. I loved the character of Zara Lain. As mentioned in practically every review, Zara is the Queen of Snark. The dialogue reflects this well — it is very natural. Nate and Zara’s relationship also felt very natural, if a little rocky to start. I thought most of the supporting characters were well drawn, and even the bit players were unique individuals instead of cookie cutter cardboard. There were a few editing hiccups that made me cringe, but they didn’t detract too much from the plot. I thought that secrets were revealed in a graceful manner, and the book kept me turning pages, eager to know what happened next. I look forward to seeing the next book in the series, because I want to know what mischief Zara will get into next — even if she is not to be the focus.
