Book Review: Bloodgifted – Book One of the Dantonville Legacy – by Tima Maria Lacoba

Bloodgifted (The Dantonville Legacy, #1)Bloodgifted by Tima Maria Lacoba

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Laura Dantonville is a content, well-balanced woman living in modern-day Sydney with an unusual gift – she ages more slowly than any other normal human being. Her birthday marks a coming-of-age where she learns that she is descended from a line of vampires, her blood giving a vampire the ability to walk in the day-light. Enter her guardian, Alec Monroe, a vampire chosen to protect her from the others of their kind who must also feed from Laura to keep up his exceptional strength.

Laura struggles at first to accept this new information, which the author portrays very well. When the protagonist does eventually accept her destiny, her eyes are opened to a whole different world she’d never believed possible, where passion, conspiracy and danger lurk around every corner.

The story moves with excellent pace, with some humour thrown in for good measure, while a passionate relationship with a healthy dose of conflict develops between the heroine and her modern-day hero. The world which Ms Lacoba has created is amazingly vast, with a wealth of information and explanation, using her knowledgeable background of Ancient Roman history.

Very well written story for the first part of the Dantonville Legacy and I look forward to reading more from this author, having already sampled the first chapter of the next book.
