I received a copy of POISON by Jordyn Redwood from Kregel. I was excited to read it since my name is Jordan and everyone spells it as “Jordyn.” My dream is to be an author, so I saw a fellow Jorda/yn authoress. Anyway, on to the book – it is the second book in the Bloodline Trilogy. I hadn’t read book one, but after reading this one, it will be on my list to look for at the bookstore.
POISON is a novel of suspense fiction, which is not normally a genre I read. At first I was confused by aspects that had been discussed in the first book, PERIL, but it didn’t lessen my enjoyment. Chapter one onward, I was riveted to my seat and could not stop. The characters are believable. Not once did I question how someone could have done something. Each page flowed into the next.
Keelyn has a stepfather who can easily be called delusional. Five years prior to POISON, he killed most of her family. In this installment, he kidnaps Keelyn’s niece. Even though I was new to Keelyn’s world, I was nonetheless riveted. I’m glad to have come across this series and look forward to reading PERIL and the third book, PROOF.
