      UPDATE the new version of Bloodlines is now available from . Kindle version also avaiable now. This is actually my own book, so its not fair to give it a rating.

      This book had such great reviews I purposefully sought it out when major book sellers, such as B&N, didn't carry it. I should have taken that for a sign.My biggest gripes about this book are 1) a real editor needs to proof this book (a lot!) and 2) the author needs to do a much better job on researching her facts.For my first issue I will say the flow, writing, building of the story, etc. is horrid. Thoughts are not presented clearly or reasonably as she jumps all around in her conversation [...]

      This is my Daughters first book in a trilogy.I have read it 5 times and each time is as good as the first. Some people may think this is a biest review. But if it was rubbish, believe me, i wouldnt have encouraged her to have it published. Please give it a try, you will be hooked.

    4. Isa Lavinia on said:

      I hate to say anything bad about a book because I'm certain that, bad or good, the author loves it just the same and put in an equal amount of effort. I mean this only as constructive criticism.That being said, despite its 310 pages the plot feels thin to the point of transparency, every turn is predictable. The characters read as caricatures, and the main character is a blatant Mary-Sue who displays behaviour only acceptable in a young teenage girl, not a girl in her early twenties.Where was th [...]

    5. Jenny on said:

      Wow! I don't want to be mean but can I not?! I couldn't even get past page thirty. The writing was childish and in desperate need of editing. I felt like I was reading a ten year old's, what I did for summer vacation, homework. For example: Why would she be telling her "best" friend that, of course, she didn't talk to her father about her powers because he was dead. Um, yeah. Wouldn't the best friend know that? I know the author was just trying to give us some background but having Keira do it i [...]

    6. Ana Lucía on said:

      I really enjoyed this book. I was hooked from the beginning because I didn’t know what Keira was or what her gift was, until I was given a hint in the first chapter.Keira is looking for answers about her past and why she is hearing voices, but soon she realizes that maybe this wasn’t the wisest decision.I really liked that there was a big group of characters – all of them playing an important part to the story. I connected with each one of them. At some points the dynamic of the group remi [...]

    7. Harold Smithson (Suicide punishable by Death) on said:

      You guys will think I'm crazy.Bloodlines is the story of Keira, a woman who goes to Salem, Massachusetts, to discover her past while sending the story in as many unrelated directions as possible and devoting minimal time to interesting aspects. Never mind the demons hunting the main characters and the supernatural mystery going on, we have a house to paint! (Seriously, there are about three chapters devoted to that house alone) Oh joy.The plotting of this book, if it hasn't already been made app [...]

    8. Maddison Jay on said:

      I very much enjoyed this book. Its a nice change from Vampires and the new Fallen angel craze that seems to be going on. I find this story to be very original. I can relate with the main Character Keira. She feels isolated and very alone at first, desperate to find out where she comes from, and to be around people who are like her. The other characters are very likeable and I do think Danny and Tyler sound rather hot. Shame they are ficticious. I dont want to spoil this book for anyone so i wont [...]

    9. Judit on said:

      I really loved this story from the start till the end; there were some slow chapters but others were so full of action that the balance was just right. The characters are great; they all have different yet in some ways similar personalities. You can never know what the next happening will be; in most of the books I can predict the outcome, villain etc. but in this story everything was a surprise or I thought something else was gonna happen. It's so good that when you reach the end of the book; y [...]

    10. Jessica Lambert on said:

      The sentences are a little choppy, but once you get past that, this book is actually amazing. It would have scored a 5 if it werent for the choppy parts.Keira is a likeable character, I liked her very much. The other main characters are great, all with their own thoughts and opinions. I dont like disclosing much about the storyline for fear of ruining the book for others, but I know I personally cannot wait for the next book.

    11. Louise Charleston on said:

      I’ve been meaning to add this review for a long time, but since I’ve just had my first child, I’ve not had the chance to do so until now. This book actually gets 4.5 stars from me. My gripe is the editing. However, I’ve read several times there was a ruckus about this and the Author is having the book redone with another publisher. GOOD idea, because the storyline is fantastic. It’s fresh, new, definitely different. As a new author, and still learning, your previous editor should have [...]

    12. Jarred Minnestoe on said:

      Ok so to be honest, I wasn't looking forward to reading this book after seeing some of the comments on here with regards to the editing. HOWEVER. I’m very glad I did, and this book is now one of my favourites of all time. The new version of this must read a lot better, since I couldn’t fault the editing at all. I hate spoilers with a passion; I like to read the book for myself. So with that in mind I will simplify this as much as possible. The story follows a young girl Keira, and her friend [...]

    13. Malini on said:

      This book needs to win an award for originality.There are mixed reviews about this book, and some comments on the editing. I agree the sentences are choppy at times, but I urge people to look past this and actually pay attention to the storyline, since of course, we read the book for the story, the feelings you get when you read, the bond you feel with the characters, and feeling as though you are beside the character going through everything they go through.Of course if your just an editor in t [...]

    14. Jake Miller on said:

      I really enjoyed reading this book. Right from the first chapter. The story is different to what is out there at the moment, and it makes a refreshing change. The main character, Keira, is great. Not one of these needy helpless girls I've been reading about a lot lately. She has spunk. She is fiesty, and tough. Very nice.When you read the book you feel as though you are taking every step the characters take, all of which by the way, are very likeable. I have a couple of favourites and cant wait [...]

    15. Andrea Matlock on said:

      Fantastic first book, a bit of work needed on the editing. A fair few mistakes left in. But the storylines is great, the characters force you to love them. Looking forward to the rest of the series.

    16. Natalie on said:

      I was a little slow getting into this book, but once I had read a few chapters I was caught by the mystery, the magic and, most especially, the characters. Keira is a prickly individual with quite a temper; it is rather entertaining to watch her flinging attackers left and right and into trees. Her best friend Lily, while not nearly as tough, is also no shrinking violet. She is unfailingly loyal and sweet. The contrast and friendship between them is very well done.As much as I liked watching Kei [...]

    17. Ashley Fontainne on said:

      Lindsay Anne Kendal did a fantastic job on this novel, and that took a lot for me to say, since I don't normally read this particular genre.The plot line is extremely intriguing and contains a quite unique take on the hidden history of the Salem witch trials and the resulting generational impact that the actions of those individuals originally involved had on their subsequent "Bloodlines."The main characters are immediately likable and the friendships that developed will make for interesting tie [...]

    18. Megan11 on said:

      I have to say I am team LucianTyler kind of bugs the crap out of me. As for the rest of the storyI havent read a book about that in a while so it was refreshing, although it felt like I was reading the book version on The Covenant. My only complaint is the amount of characters and the depth they lack. It seemed like they talked about Lily, the best friend more than anyone, so i hope in Torment we get to know the other characters better. And like I said, I hope it turns in to something with Lucie [...]

    19. Melliane on said:

      A really great book mixing Demons and Witches ! I've always liked some stories about the Witches of Salem and these ones were very interesting ! I liked quickly the two main characters Lily and Kiera. They evolve all along the novel like sisters and it was a pleasure to follow their adventures. the story of Kiera and the one about her ancestors are very intriguing, and we're caught in a few tome in the story.

      liked this book a lot. something different is always a treat to read. I believe Lindsay Anne Kendal is a first time author. Well I wish you all the best in your writing career, and I cant wait to read the next installment.

      I wasn't sure what to expect from this book, but have been wanting to read it for a while now. I got sucked in right form page one and never let go. Bloodlines is an exciting story about some young adults that are in the process of discovering their magical powers that have been passed down from generations before them. Now they need to find out where the power originated from and what to do with it.Bloodlines has so many interesting plots and twists I can't even begin to name my favorite. The a [...]

With her best friend, Lily, by her side she leaves West Chester, Pa and head to Salem, Ma. Paying for a cheap hotel for a week, the friends begin to visit different areas of Salem hoping to get answers to some of the clues Keira found in her grandfather's papers. What they find instead are a group of boys (I guess young men) who seem to follow Keira and [...]

    25. Michelle on said:

      I really enjoyed this book. A lot happens in it and at the same time, you want even more to happen because you want to find out more about the histories of the families. There are so many unanswered questions and at first that frustrated me, but as the book goes on I think Lindsay does a really nice job of spreading out the answers that she reveals. It was not too slow, but at the same time you only got enough information to keep you on the edge of your seat and engaged in the book. I loved gett [...]

      I bought this from B&N and it shows 1332 pages… weird it skipped 4 pages per flip on my Nook. hmm *sighed loudly*.I thought about the last time I read a book that big it took me a month (which was an Anne Rice book) anyhoo I now know the book number was wrong.Your main character ‘Keira’ is a strong female with awesome powers. She has almost everything imaginable and I loved that.She has her friend and she doesn’t let anyone run over neither of them not even slightly. I was glad to se [...]

    30. Kim on said:

      I really wanted to like this book. There was so much potential with the plot and I was curious about the main character, Keira, right off the bat. But, unfortunately, the writing just couldn't match up with the ambition of the story.I think my biggest problem was with the dialogue. It was often contrived or being used as an info dump. The author is British, so some of the wording just didn't fit into how people would speak in Salem, Massachusetts. The male characters didn't speak like any 20-som [...]
