I must admit I’m not one to really read thrillers but I did enjoy Blood Orphan. Samantha Adair created such an interesting strolling that I couldn’t put down.
I found the story really interesting and I needed to find out what was going to happen. This definitely reminded in some ways of James Bond in the sense of the action that was happening throughout the book.
Tom and Isabella were very intriguing characters. Both had secrets that they wanted to keep. I really liked the character arcs and finding more about their backstories, especially how they came to be where they were.
Overall Blood Orphan was very interesting and I’m interested in seeing where Samantha Adair goes with the series.
