Review: Golden Blood


 

Description: Gemma Hart never knows when her father is going to whisk her back in time. Her toes start tingling and she has a few minutes to find a secret haven where she can disintegrate and appear in another time and place. While “across the line,” her training and skills are put to the test as she completes a mission that will change history for the lucky few her father has selected.
Gemma’s parents are adamant that secrecy is paramount to her family’s safety. If people knew what they were capable of, they could be “used and abused”, as her mother always says. Afraid she might accidentally utter the truth and break the ancient oath of her people, Gemma spends her school days as a loner. Only one thing can throw her sheltered life askew… Harrison Granger.

Harrison never expected to talk to the strange Hart girl, but after a brief encounter he can’t stop thinking about her. He begins a campaign to chisel away her icy veneer and is met with unexpected consequences. As he slowly wins this girl over, he enters a surreal world that has him fighting to keep his newfound love and his life.


“Some guys are worth breaking the rules for.”
My thoughts (Theo):
I simply loved this book! So
much that it hurt when the ending was approaching so fast!
I
loved how the characters made me think of some random people I might even know,
but I had no idea they possessed such powers!
 
It
all starts with Gemma – the shy, never talking to anyone, kind of girl, some
sort of a freak for all those around the High school, always playing it cool
and safe, never saying more than a word to anyone! Yet she is still picking the
interest of someone really interesting:
a boy, by all means!
At first
she is frightened about this sudden change in her behaviour, pushing him away –
yet wanting him for some unknown reason!
Harrison,
the nice, super-popular guy in school made an approach and now he is getting to
start to understand his mysterious pull towards this beautiful, yet cold girl. She
raises challenges for him that others couldn’t, so it is easy to say that they
sooner than later become a thing!
Now they
are dating, always checking for her parents to show up and rip everything apart.
Now is a whole new other game at which Gemma is not so good at: lying while
smiling.
Her brother
and sister, kind of figured it out, but now one said a word until Harrison,
kind of popped-up, on one of her missions.
Wait!!
What the..?? What missions?
And then I was like:
But after a while I was more like:
But in the end it was worth it because I was like:
 
Yeah,
same reaction here, but I loved it altogether! She is a time spirit traveller,
a kind of ‘being’ that goes back in time to re-write the history along with her
family! No doubt she was all secretive and running like hell on some occasions!
But Harrison couldn’t care less as he is already more than smitten with her, he
loved her from the top of his heart and the same thing applies to her.
Even
though relationships are being prohibited by her parents she manages to get
Harrison a pass somehow, but bigger problems awaits them!
It
is a thrilling, sort of smashing your heart, kind of story due to the always
getting you by the edge kind of book! It’s nice, beautifully written and always
making you carve for more! I totally got smitten myself with the story and fell
in love with the characters.
I recommend
the book to all those of you ready to travel back, pour some mystery and love
into it and this is it! You have it: the awesome book that Golden Blood is!
“Hey, I was cool with alien, this isn’t much different.”
I
offer this book a 4.5 / 5 stars!
 
Happy
reading everyone~!
