Review: The Delphi Bloodline by Donna Del Oro
Title: The Delphi Bloodline
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Release Date : May 25, 2012
Present day descendants of the ancient, psychically powerful Delphi bloodline face the threat of extinction when an evil tycoon hunts them for his own nefarious intent, a global spy network.
When artist Athena Butler, the modern-day descendant of a powerful, ancient bloodline of psychic women, realizes she’s the target of mysterious and dangerous kidnappers, she gets help from strange sources—the spirit of an ancient ancestor and a handsome man who claims to be one of her bloodline’s Guardians. Her mental powers and his brawny skills keep them one step ahead of the mastermind behind these kidnappers. Until the time when an FBI task force decides to use Athena as bait.
I gave it a 2
and a flirty
I have to say when I saw the premise for this book it looked really good, it had the potential for everything you want in a paranormal romance, action, psychics, kidnappers, true love.
The novel starts out introducing all of the players, at a chapter a person this take a while and makes for a slow start to this action filled book. It has plenty of action however is seems to drag that out too. I also kept waiting for the romance, we have a love match between Athena and her guardian Kas but there is no sexual tension, no real romance they just finally end up together because it was for-ordained or something.
SO paranormal yes, thriller yes, romance not so much. Its a good book and it has a good story I think it is long on details that aren't necessary for the story and could have been a good 75 pages shorter.
