Carlos Sebastián disappeared six months ago. Just before leaving, he had said strange things to his daughter and entrusted jewelry to her care. Carli has been repeatedly having nightmares since her father left. It was time to find answers, especially after the emerald amulet her father gave her had opened into a vortex displaying a figure of her mother and her young self. She decides to find her father, and this leads her to Thomas in New York City.

In this intriguing fantasy novel, BloodHeir by Sisters Negron, Carli discovers she is the heir to the Order of Knowledge, believed to be the protector and savior of the Ethlatan race. Can Carli accept this role? And would she be able to secure the safety of her people? Grab a copy and find out!

There are quite many positive aspects to this book. There was significant character growth in the protagonist, Carli. She went from being a naive girl who easily fell for Doris' tricks to a woman who would risk her life for another. The author had done an excellent job of writing this interesting fantasy fiction. A different race that lived in another world having its own history and foundation was successful. The Ethlatan race had its governing system, councils, and spiritual leaders. The use of a mystique foreign diction in the Rite of Esnactu, as well as in communicating to the Heir Stone, made the story all too authentic and realistic. The author had done well to also provide interpretation to the strange words used in the book.

The story had me in suspense right from the first page to the end. The first book opens up with a creepy scene and leaves the readers wondering what is going on. The last lap of the book leaves the readers on a cliffhanger, thirsting for more. I loved how the author could switch from the past to the present without any cut in narration. The book is rich in culture and history. Apart from the detailed insight into the Ethlatan's history, readers would also read about Vlad Dracul and his war against the Turks, prominent eighteenth-century classical artists.

However, there are negative aspects to the book as well. The book had a lot of errors. Therefore, I can surmise that it was not professionally edited. I wouldn't say I liked that the book was not divided into parts or chapters. I found it difficult re-reading some of my favorite scenes or locating a particular event in the book. Also, the book did not resolve any conflict or issues raised. The story left me hanging and craving for more. Hopefully, there will be a sequel. I rate this book 4 out of 5 stars because I enjoyed following Carli's journey and transformation. I recommend this book to lovers of fantasy fiction, mysteries, or suspense novels.

Carli's character growth, from a naive girl to a courageous woman, was particularly noteworthy and a testament to the author's skillful writing.
Words seduce and pages ignite passion. Let's get lost in the tantalizing world of literature together.
