Blood and Lilies (Bloodlines #1)

Once cast from Heaven, Zillah has vowed to destroy God and overtake his kingdoms. But a key is needed to open the gates between the two realms.The Key to the gate walks the earth in the form of a woman…young, innocent and completely unaware of her importance in the battle between good and evil. Once her blood is shed, Zillah can open the portal to release her father…Lucifer himself.

Cara, a college sophomore, is quickly thrown into a world of supernatural, as well as learning of her true ancestry. Vampires, werewolves and the Nephilim are now a part of her real world. As the beings struggle to protect her, she fights to keep her sanity as her mortal realm is crushed.

Secrets are revealed that could shatter Cara’s new found love, as well as lead to her ultimate death. A family is torn apart as the battle to save the key leads them down a road of betrayal and heartache. Loved ones are lost, lines are crossed, and nothing is as it seems. Lies and truths twist and turn, leaving us with only one question…

Could you sacrifice the one you love to save the world?

My Review:
Firstly I would like to thank Beau Coup Publishing, for kindly providing me with a copy of Blood and Lilies to read and review.
I can never turn down a good paranormal book, and this on e was no different…
We meet Cara, a college student, who has no family, and only has her best friend Kelsey standing by her,  gets thrown into a world which she thought only exists in the books that she reads…
Heaven and Hell are at war, and it will take one innocent girl living on earth to tip the scales.
Good vs Evil
“I lay here silent in a bleeding sea
That is created of blood and lily
The pure are tainted
Salvation is gone
Among the fallen
Left with no song
For me they wait
And die for
Among the fallen Of blood and Lily”
Good and Evil will come to blows, secrets will be revealed, love will be found and lost, families will be torn apart, and death is only around the corner.
After discovering alot about herself along the way, Cara finds her one true friend can’t be her friend anymore, and those she holds dear to her know, are those who will hunt her “friend” down…
Cara and her new found friends must make a stand to fight the evil that is trying to claim Cara’s life, and cause an unimaginable amount of pain and destruction into the human realm.
“And don’t thank me. There is no need to. Your life is more important to me than you will ever know. I will die to save you, Cara. Even if you told me you hate me and the fire of a thousand suns and wished my death a thousand times more. I would still die so your heart could be on.”
I could not put this book down! This book definitely kept me guessing, even the last page threw me for a loop – I did NOT see that coming…
I highly recommend this book to those who like supernatural romance books.
