Blood Trinity: Book 1 in the Belador Series by Sherrilyn Kenyon and Dianna Love
Atlanta has become the battlefield between human and demon. All her life, Evalle Kincaid has walked the line between the two. Her origins unknown, she's on a quest to learn more about her past. . . and her future.
When a demon claims a young woman in a terrifying attack and there's no one else to blame, Evalle comes under suspicion. Now she's on a deadly quest for her own survival. Through the sordid underground of an alternate Atlanta where nothing is as it seems to the front lines of the city, where her former allies have joined forces to hunt her, Evalle must prove her innocence or pay the ultimate price.
But saving herself is the least of her problems if she doesn't stop the coming apocalypse. The clock is ticking and Atlanta is about to catch fire. . . .
Blood Trinity is the first in the new Belador series and introduces us to a world where there are demons and supernatural beings from different worlds walking among us. The ability to move to our time and to the past also exists and is wielded by the more powerful beings.
The supernatural beings are largely hidden -- they have developed ways to communicate and to keep their identity from the regular humans just as the Beladors strive to protect all humans.
This world is not without discrimination and strife and intrigue. We learn that those of mixed heritage are not just looked down upon but mistrusted. Evalle Kincaid is the first person of mixed heritage that we meet and our first impression of her is that she's terrified that the others will learn of her difference. Despite the personal risks that she faces, she is willing to divulge this "flaw" to save the lives of the other Beladors. Kincaid proves herself to be honorable, brave and loyal -- while those who claim her loyalty have been weak.
Without disclosing what happens, the book involves a powerful object with a will of its own, historical enemies that have suddenly acquired power, and personal rivalry that puts cooperation at risk. There are undertones of romance and satisfying action scenes. Overall, Blood Trinity is a gripping start to a new series. I look forward to reading more about Evalle Kincaid and the next installment in the Belador series.
