Tangled Bloodlines – Deborah Noel


She grew up in twentieth century Pennsylvania countryside knowing she possesses superhuman powers from her “Irish pixie” bloodlines. She had retired after a particularly tough case where the victim was her husband’s twin brother. After her brief respite from murders and homicides, Cianna witnesses a killing where the murderer is a vampire. Her daughter goes missing soon after the killing. Cianna and the love she had once pushed out of her life, her estranged husband Declan, travel halfway around the world to try to save their child.

As the mystery unravels, she learns that although she is a half-breed, the other half isn’t “Irish pixie” as she grew up believing - weaving her into a more tangled history and frightening future than she had bargained for.

I was so excited when Deborah approached me to review her book Tangled Blood Lines. I found it a great read once I got into it. It took me a while, but it was worth while taking the time to read.

My initial thoughts to begin with was that this book was all about solving murder cases. As I read past the first few chapters I realised there was more to this story than solving murders.

There is a major supernatural element that really intrigued me. I have a love for magic and reading this story with the supernatural really caught my attention

When Shane and his girlfriend Brae capture two tracker vampires I found the story become more interesting and I found a new level to the story. There was something different about these vampires, as once they were caught and put behind silver bars and started revealing their purpose I became more interested in them.

There were three main relationships in Tangled Blood Lines. There was the relationship between Cianna and Declan, Cianna, Declan and Mattie and the relationship uncle Sam, Cianna and Declan. Telepathy was a strong connection with these relationships as well as the family bond and that of love. All three relationships stood out to me the most because of the way they all interacted with each other. Their connection/bond was so strong. I really could understand how Cianna felt for her husband Declan. Their love was so strong and so very beautiful.

After reading Tangled Blood Lines, I was left with many unanswered questions. I want to know more about the Vampires and Cianna’s history. I also want to know what happens when Mattie is found.

 This is such a fantastic read, I hope to read more books from Deborah in the near future.

If you love the supernatural you will love this book.
