Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bran | 2/16/2014

    " I really enjoyed this book and hope to read the whole series before the next one comes out soon. After the first few chapters it was hard to put down. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mel | 2/8/2014

    " I would've given this book four stars except the end of the book was such a letdown. It was as if the writer suddenly ran out of ideas and suddenely after tons of tension and buildup, everything turned out fine in the story. It didn't gel very well at all. VERY DISAPPOINTING. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Titilayo | 2/4/2014

    " you can't go wrong with a book dedicated to octavia butler. i'm in love. thank you public library book list for suggesting i read this author. it was like reading octavia butler without the melancholy. not only was it expertly written. everything was so neat. it encompassed so many of the things i love about science fiction and spirituality. you through a little afrocentricity and strong baptist women its like ambrosia for the mind. second favorite science fiction author of all time!!!!!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nusaybah | 2/1/2014

    " This book is an entertaining read. It is the third of a series. I enjoyed the book but it was not nearly as good as the book that came before it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brianna | 1/31/2014

    " Good story and I love the African Immortals series, but Due has the tendancy to make her female characters sound like whiny whimps. Jessica is grating on my last nerve, and now she's ruined Fana! I have to fight the urge to skip past pages with Jessica as the narrator. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wsb | 1/30/2014

    " While the second book let me down a little, this third installment restored my faith. Very good book. Still not as good as the first one, but very good. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vanessa | 1/16/2014

    " Ms. Due as always your books are simply wonderful! Please make us proud with the next book in the series. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Denise | 1/2/2014

    " I didn't realize that this was book three of a series. It took a while to figure out what was going on in the story and the continual backstory feed killed the suspense. Maybe I'll start with book one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alison | 12/30/2013

    " I can't say enough good things about Tananarive Due and this, her third book, that follows Jessica, her husband Dawit, and their 'interesting' blood line. This novel ties together a lot of the plot threads that were left open by her second book and had a much tighter storyline. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Angela Stewart-horton | 12/28/2013

    " Couldn't stop reading, loving this series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gwen | 12/14/2013

    " This was pretty good. God enough that I would read the sequel, but not good enough to buy the sequel. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tina | 12/12/2013

    " Another excellent book in this series. I love Tananarive's work, and this was no exception. I hope there is a 4th in this series! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tanisa Bernard | 11/26/2013

    " This series takes my breath away... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ayeola | 11/23/2013

    " I loved this entire series, however, I was disappointed by the ending. I wanted more from and for Fana and Michel. Overall, the characters were unique and fully developed which was refreshing. It's apparent the author has experienced love because she definitely knows how to write about it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jlbutler55 | 11/21/2013

    " If you liked her earlier books about African immortals, you will enjoy this one as well although it is not nearly as good as the first one in this series. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Debdanz | 11/9/2013

    " i like all her others, except joplin's ghost which i didn't like at all, better. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shauna | 10/13/2013

    " Although Blood Colony is the third in a series, it stands alone. What would you do if you knew the secret of eternal life? In this book, two groups of immortals come into conflict because they have very different answers to that question. This book kept me turning the pages. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tameka | 8/15/2013

    " I liked how well this story blended so many different character narratives. I can't want to read the next book in this series. This series keeps getting more interesting as I continue to read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wilhelmina | 7/8/2013

    " The third in an excellent series. Due is a superb writer. I liked this one marginally less than the first two, only because I'm a bit weary of the DaVinci-Code-like, Catholic Church, conspiracy connections. Nevertheless, the book was an excellent read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Glenda | 5/13/2013

    " All I can say is Awesome!! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Serena | 5/28/2012

    " The cheesiness factor is increasing with every book. Not sure how I feel about the use of "grown-ass man" in the narrative. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Valerie | 2/1/2012

    " Tananarive Due has done it again. She manages to make extraordinary storylines and characters very believable. I enjoyed this 3rd forray into her world of immortals. The ending left me a little unsatisfied, but the door is open for part 4! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kamilah | 10/18/2011

    " Not as good as the first two books but it held my attention so it was just ok. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer Coleman | 10/12/2011

    " Great plotting, so-so character development. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chris Vachio | 10/11/2011

    " Very good book. The characters are very well developed and you care about what happens to them. Definitely waiting for the sequel. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Red Fields | 5/19/2009

    " I thought this was the third book of a trilogy. I'd picked this one up first. I held off and read numbers one and two first. It's not the end. There will be more. It's not holding up for me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alison | 4/14/2009

    " This is the third book of the "Living Blood" series...very interesting and full of suspense...new characters and you can expect another book after this one. Great read! "
