Bloodline, by Kathi Oram Peterson, Blog Tour & Giveaway!

Book Summary:

France, 1371. The old Queen of France lies on her deathbed with a secret she will take to her grave: there is one true heir to the throne, one who would have the power to ally France and Scotland. But after her death, all that will be left are a few shreds of evidence revealing the stunning identity of her successor.
Flight attendant Skye Armstrong has heard the voice of warning before, and as she’s returning home from London, she recognizes the feeling of dread that accompanies her sixth sense. Walking from the airport terminal to get to her car, she pauses in the middle of the road. Her hesitation gives a Good Samaritan the split second he needs to pull her out of the path of a speeding car, saving her life. But her misfortunes are just beginning. When she arrives home, she discovers that Auntie Marjorie has been kidnapped, and cryptic instructions have been left behind: Skye must retrieve the contents of a safe deposit box and deliver it to the captors . . . No police. Her feelings of dread return.
What Skye discovers in the bank box is baffling: a single page. The ancient document is certainly valuable, and with no time to lose, she goes to the rendezvous to discover the next step. A cell phone rings beneath a park bench. She answers the call, and on the screen is a picture of Auntie, unconscious. Now the kidnapper demands Skye find two more pages or her aunt will die.
What secrets are hidden within the illuminated pages, and who believes they are worth killing for? And what role does the Good Samaritan play in all of it?

My Review:
Well Bloodline literally had me page-turning the entire time! It started out with a bang and the action and suspense never let up. I felt like it was a roller coaster ride! I never knew who Skye could really trust and I was just as confused as she seemed to be about what in the world was going on! I felt my heart-racing and pounding as she tried to find each page and know who to trust. All she wanted to do was save her Aunt, yet I wondered in the back of my mind if she cared just a little bit about the priceless pages she was finding. This book was fantastically put together and I could not stop reading it. I tried! Sleep is a necessity but reading is more important! This is definitely one to read if you are a fan of being kept on your toes and trying to figure out puzzles and mysteries. My one and only complaint, which isn't really a complaint, was the ending. I will not spoil it for you, just suffice it to say that it ended too quickly for me. I wanted more information...more something, why did it have to end?! So I am hopeful that there is a book two on the horizon!

Happy Reading!!!
