Burden of Blood by Wenona Hulsey is a fast paced modern fantasy. Police officer Nicole Keenan is just trying to lead a normal life in a small southern town despite the fact that she can hear other people’s thoughts. But events sweep her into a dangerous adventure that puts her loved one’s in harms way along with revealing her true identity.
I’m a big fan of modern fantasy, which is what I would consider this book to be. Magical things happening right in our world along with magical creatures such as faeries. So I was pretty excited to be able to read this book.
It did take me a little to get into it, but once the action picked up it was a very easy and entertaining read. The end surprised me a little, but it wasn’t really a bad one. The character of Nicole is really well written, as she is pulled in different directions and makes discoveries about her past and her powers.
Note: I received a copy of this book for review purposes.
