Review by: Jessica Peterson on June 09, 2013 :
I thought this book was excellent. I personally enjoyed all the description because it paints a very vivid picture for the reader. There were moments when I was a bit confused as to what was going on with the jumping around, but it didn't take long to figure it out. And I was left with quite a few questions unanswered in the end, but considering there's a sequel, perhaps that is why. All in all, I thought this book was well written and it kept me interested throughout. I wanted to keep reading to know what would happen and I even found myself getting a bit emotional a few times.

Review by: Jay Patterson on Dec. 07, 2012 : (no rating)
I have several negative comments about Blood Is Heavier. The opening action scene was so overly descriptive that it detracted from the action, descriptive on top of descriptive. Then back story took over and ran page after page. Finally we got to the meat of the story but by then we'd gone 30%. Then there was more descriptives and introspection on top of introspection. It's over the top and ruins a very good story at the core. The action scenes are pathetic. I was hoping half way through this to give it a decent rating but it continued to get worse. No rating. Appearently others are more generous to this than I'm feeling.

Quick highlights from the perfect 10 review on my blog:

I put this book to an extreme test. While I was reading it took several breaks. I wanted to see if Blood is Heavier would keep my attention. I also wanted to find out if I would constantly want more. I easily did on both fronts. Once again, Ella did a near perfect job developing main and supporting characters, scenes and situations. The internal conflicts are very believable. These conflicts can also be related to if only in a distant, personal sense. The action, we are thrown into almost right away is a great way to start this book. Like I said, at points, Ella almost creates a second story that I came close to forgetting about the main one. The way she melds the backstory with current action does not lose you at all. Chapter titles are well thought out in sync with the chapter itself. The title "Blood Is Heavier" is mentioned in the story. Another nice way to combine the entire book into one, flowing / consistent entity. Visualization: everything that happens in the story is very easy to see with mind. The emotions portrayed, you can almost feel as if they were your own. For the second time, I can not say enough about a book by Ella Medler.

Blood is Heavier is a mystery thriller that will have you on the edge of your seat wondering what is going to happen next. I was literally up all day and night reading to book so I could get to the end to see if he would prevail.

Nick Hunter is a strong male lead who is very likable and you will be rooting for him throughout the book. I don't want to give away any spoilers because this is a mystery/thriller. I found that throughout the book, there were lots of twists and turns...and I kept hoping that Nick would come out on top (can't tell you how or why because that would give it away!)

I highly recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a page turning thriller that will keep you up all night. It was an emotional roller coaster of a read that I can say I was happy to be on!

I don't want to give anything away, however I will say that I really enjoyed the pace and the writing style of this novel. The author writes believable plots and characters - I felt Nick's pain and anguish though out the entirety of the story. Lots of twists and turns right up to the great ending - now I have to wait for the sequel to find out what happens next... With any luck, I wont have to wait too long to more about Nick Hunter!
