“Sixteen-year-old Alex is your average teen who thought she’d be spending the next few years suffering through high school…not saving the world from an alien plague. But when a rare meteor shower unleashes something otherworldly, she finds herself at the center of a five-thousand-year-old conspiracy.
Guided by cryptic clues left from her deceased father, Alex is plunged into a strange world predestined since ancient times. As the mystery unravels, she discovers her bloodline is anything but average.
Pursued by both the people she loves and unknown enemies, Alex is forced to rely upon her instincts and the help of her friend, Chris and loyal dog, Baxter. Together, they race against time to find a cure.
Bloodline is the first book of the Forgotten Origins Trilogy.”
Loss often alters the way our days happen, and this is true for young Alex, who is still trying to deal with the death of her father. A rare meteor shower is due to interact with Earth’s atmosphere, reminding her of all the things her dad loved and pursued. Little did she know, her life wouldn’t be the same after the brilliant meteor display brings chaos to Earth.
With a mystery before her, her dad leading her, a little brother to fight for, and the help of a dear friend, Alex must do everything possible to restore order to not only the town she lives in, but the rest of the world, too. The burden is heavy, especially for a 16-year-old girl, but with Chris’ reminders of faith, and Jacob looking up to her, she pushes forward against seemingly impossible odds.
The pace of this novel was smooth and easy to follow along, and the mysteries unfolded just right. Tara Ellis is a talented author who created a rich environment and fulfilling characters. The world around her characters was easy to picture, and I found myself plugged into the place that Alex called home. Small clues lead me to my own conclusions – occasionally correct, occasionally incorrect, but always worth uncovering.
I like to stay seated quietly in my chair, while kind of feeling like I’m sitting on the edge of the seat, and that’s how this story unfolded for me. Each page kept me hungry for more, while each solution that Alex came to kept me satisfied. This is a story I won’t soon forget.
I give Bloodline by Tara Ellis 5 lucky horseshoes! I enjoyed reading her book and cannot wait to read the next one.
