    One thought on “The Blood Race: (Book 1)”

    1. My original review got deleted because I messed up and deleted it So, here s the new and improved review.Story WorldThe book takes place in modern day California and a whole other dimension for gifted people Honestly, this book is so epic I can hardly contain my excitement with rewriting this review PlotThe story line follows Ion and Hawk as they navigate life and obstacles that come their way Hawk and Ion often clash because of things I can t say without spoiling the awesomeness that is this bo [...]

    2. EVERYONE needs this book in their lives I ve read sci fi fantasy thrillers before and I m kind of a picky reader, too but The Blood Race blew me away with how unique it is This is not your average teenager with superpowers book This story is woven together with such detail and precision It s beautiful You will fall in love with the characters and want to hug some of them and take them home with you Not to mention, the writing is next level beautifully crafted prose, deep themes, complex plot, ep [...]

    3. This book being as hyped up as it was, my expectations were like SKY HIGH Yup And now that I ve finished what do I say Wow Oh my word I READ THE BOOK GUYS I ACTUALLY GOT TO READ IT I THOUGHT I D HAVE TO WAIT AGES BUT I M SO THRILLED I GOT TO READ IT IT FEELS LIKE FOREVER BEFORE I DID BUT I M DONE NOW CAN YOU BELIEVE IT yeah, sorry, I m done now.The good news, my friends, is that this book did live up to my expectation in almost every way Almost But we ll get to that later Some where it was descr [...]

    4. The Blood Race is a fantastic YA sci fi novel by the one and only K.A Emmons It tells the story of Ion and Hawk, and a world with anomalies , different dimensions, shapeshifting, and a prophecy that will alter the world as we know it It s an intense, gripping read that will leave you clamoring to know what s going to happen next.I m going to admit right off the bat that I m not always a fan of sci fi It s just not a genre that I tend to connect with quite as easily But I absolutely adored this b [...]

    5. This one receives a four star rating not at all because the writing wasn t gorgeous enough to merit five stars Because agh K.A Emmons has an incredible way with words in some parts of the book I felt like I was reading poetry or song rather than a story This book is graphically, emotionally vibrant, completely draws you in, and is VERYYY well done I dock a star mostly because of content that s pretty much it Quite a lot of language, a couple suggestive scenes though it wasn t portrayed in at all [...]

    6. OH MY WORD I haven t really considered myself a sci fi or dystopian reader until recently, but I m so glad I discovered that I liked both before reading The Blood Race Imagine The Raven Boys meets A Wrinkle in Time meets The Giver while being both secular and Christian at the same time Like, all the good parts of those books together.While that sounds like it gives you a general idea of what The Blood Race is about, lol not really , it s SO DIFFERENT The Blood Race is different from all the othe [...]

    7. I love stories like this one Fresh stories about superhumans and different worlds are undoubtably the best, and K.A Emmons was able to execute it so well in The Blood Race I got so many X men Miss Peregrine vibes while I was reading, but not in a bad way at all The author was able to take the familiar concepts and make them her own flawlessly.I could tell that great care and detail were put in developing the universe of dimensions and Sliders, but I still found myself confused from time to time, [...]

    8. I freaking LOVED this book It was the first book in months to keep me up till the wee hours reading and on the edge of the chair, my tired eyes kept open in suspense And while it was fast paced and action packed, it was not at all lacking in character development, plot, or inspiring themes I want to talk about all of these points so, make yourself comfortable, we ll be here for a while.Characters, where should I start First off, all of the characters were three dimensional, flawed, beautiful cha [...]

    9. This was a really interesting read and loved the opening A street race with some kind of superpower interference Count me in As a whole, I enjoyed THE BLOOD RACE, even though I totally admit that I felt some things went way above my head I didn t stay stuck on them because I liked what was happening, and I especially liked Ion This is the first book I have read that I STRONGLY did not like the female lead I m still uncertain how I feel about her, but I feel she redeemed herself near the end so I [...]

    10. The Blood Race was so unique It was very different than what I was expecting, and I am glad it was I loved how every single aspect of the fantastical side seemed realistic and plausible I m so glad that I bought it.

    11. Wow I m impressed Very impressed I can safely say that this was a book unlike anything that I have ever read It was something totally different and unique I enjoyed it from the beginning to the end THAT ENDING THOUGH That must be one of the traumatic endings that I ve read I needed the next book like yesterday.Ion is not the typical college student that he tries to be He has abilities that he doesn t understand and can t control Abilities that are deadly for those who come into contact with the [...]

    12. Last Fall I saw this book making the rounds on Twitter with some of my indie author and blogger friends, but I ll be honest, it never really caught my attention Then my lovely friend Daley Downing sent me a copy, and of course I just had to see what all the hype was about This book is super hard for me to rate and review, because I ended up with so many mixed feelings On the one hand, there is a very cool story and world here that really intrigues me, and a lot of the characters are well develop [...]

    13. REASONS TO READ THIS BOOK 1 You won t be able to put it down.This plot is the perfect twist of action and introspection One minute, an epic fight, the next a raw poignant look into the inner depths of a character For me, this is a perfect formula for a novel If it s all action, I end up skimming to find the big plot points and get on with it if it s all introspective and feely, I get bored and decided to read something else Raise your hand if you also have the attention span of a goldfish The wa [...]

    14. Also posted on my blog at thumbelinaworld.wordpress AN ENTERTAINING ONE SENTENCE SUMMARYTwo teens with amazing superpowers hop through dimensions one is brooding and seemingly impassive while the other is super powerful but can t control it and literally does EVERYTHING HE S NOT SUPPOSED TO DO and wow he doesn t even do it on purpose really kinda sounds like me I M SORRY BOB EVERYTHING I TOUCH JUST EXPLODES DON T GIVE ME THE PASSWORD TO THE NUCLEAR BOMBRE ENTERTAINING SHORT SUMMARIESBeautiful di [...]

    15. I will be avoiding spoilers.Cons The name Ion I like the name, I definitely do, but the whole book I was wondering if it was pronounced ee in or eye on Space between every paragraph I am not sure if this was intended, or if this is currently a style, or an easy to read kind of format, but I can t recall seeing it before.Well, that was pretty nitpicky, but those did bug me a little.Pros Rotating Third Person Limited Point of View I really, really enjoy this point of view A lot Not only do I love [...]

    16. This was free as a giveaway fantasy isn t my genre, because I m a guy There s a maddening lack of concrete specificities to both the real world and alternate dimension these characters live in the details are too vague for me to care about these characters Charlotte lived through WWI, but we never learn what country she s from no last names for anyone withholding the name of the college Mel and Riley attend Character names were a little grating, too Ion s perspective is far too feminine in those [...]

    17. First, do not assume that my rating of two stars mean I hate The Blood Race I do not hate it I simply did not find it original or compelling enough for three stars Three stars being my most common rating I gave Harry Potter three stars and I love HP I prefer honesty to surface gushing I am giving my honest opinion because Ms Emmons is a first time author and I want to give feedback So here goes It s a fun book but I found it 90% predictable There were two instances that I did not see coming One [...]

    18. I loved this book The Blood Race opens with a bang and will draw you right in K.A Emmons is an unmistakably talented writer, and her style is as captivating as it is beautiful I was amazed by the deep themes and powerful allegories woven throughout the story Reminded me of C.S Lewis The plot is complex and full of twists and turns I could never guess what was going to happen next Not to mention, the characters will win your heart, probably break your heart, and leave you wanting .Nothing about t [...]

    19. WHAT THE HECK.I AM SO MAD IT S OVER I HAVE SO MANY QUESTIONS.BUT ALSO THAT WAS ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS I VE EVER READ this is a really aggressive review haha Wow It was funny, the prose was beautiful, the plot was mindblowing, and the characters were so wonderfully rich and complex I loved the allegory element I didn t totally understand everything I m not smart enough to write sci fi, and I m barely smart enough to read it But in a weird way that made me love it It made me respect Kate I guess. [...]

    20. I sat on the aftermath of this book for a while, wanting to give a review that would do it and the author justice I took a chance on The Blood Race after seeing the Facebook ads touting it as a modern Narnia I don t normally buy Kindle books as I subscribe to Kindle Unlimited, but having recently exhausted what feels like the good stuff in KU I bought The Blood Race All that said, I will buy the rest of the series as they release.If you want to know about the story itself the summary will tell y [...]

    21. This book was good, but it wasn t my favorite It was a little bit predictable, but still interesting.Hopefully I ll post a full review soon Disclaimer I received a free copy of this book in a giveaway.

    22. Exciting, action packed, excellent debut novel A fresh take on the usual dystopian YA novel, with some deeper themes I can t wait for book two.

    23. I love this books so much, I love the characters and intense emotions Can t wait for book two and three
