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

BLOODLINE is a story full of adventure and suspense as characters raise to find artifacts that hold a long-ago secret. With a motley crew of characters, not knowing who to trust, and a quest to save a loved one's life, this story was entertaining from start to finish.

 I enjoyed these characters, particularly the two main ones. The author did a wonderful job of making you distrust basically everyone else. I did suspect one of the villains early on, but it was still interesting to see how everything played out. The romance was on the light side, but had some decent chemistry. The plot kept thing interesting and moving at a steady pace. There also is a nice lead-in to a sequel, which would be interesting.

In the end, was it what I wished for? A very entertaining story. If you enjoy stories like The Da Vinci Code or National Treasure, you will like this story of adventure and danger as these characters travel the globe in search of some hidden artifacts that prove a dangerous secret.

Content: Some violence, but clean.
