An amazing finish to a wonderful trilogy. It had me right up until the last page. Made the "mistake" of picking it up before bed with half left. I was up until 5 or earlier just so I could finish it.

I thoroughly enjoyed the entire Time Spirit Trilogy trilogy...until the cop-out ending. There are all kinds of better ways to finish things up, and the author picked none of them in favor of an ending that makes you wonder why you started reading the series in the first place if that's what she was going to do with it. I still enjoyed most of it, but I'm rewriting that last bit in my head.

I will try my best not to ramble on but...
I can not tell you how much I absolutely, completely, utterly, adored this book.
I even sent the author a rather embarrassing, super hyped, "OMG I loved it so much" raving fangirl email!!
But oh-my-gosh I have.
I have seriously fallen in love with this entire series.
As with the previous two books in the Time Spirit trilogy, author Melissa Pearl has woven a completely engrossing tale of Gemma and Harrison's love, dastardly acts of murder and betrayal, and an ever-changing future for our time travelling heroine that I have again, eagerly devoured in one sitting.
The emotional and extremely additive story with its constant twists and turns has kept me on the edge of my seat, gasping in shock, squeeeing gleefully with happiness, and I hesitate to admit - had me crying like a baby!
*note* tissues are a must!
While I am sad that this is the last we will see of Gemma and Harrison, this captivating story has come full circle, ending with the most perfect and satisfying HEA I could of ever hoped for. It was simply beautiful.
I can not wait to see what this exceptionally talented author has up her sleeve next because the Time Spirit trilogy has been one of the best YA series I have read, ever.

Pure blood is the third and final book in the Time Spirit Trilogy. I read the first one two months ago, then picked up the second one and after finishing it I immediately picked up Pure Blood because I couldn't wait to find out how this Melissa Pearl will conclude this addicting trilogy! I can't lie, I really grew fond of Gemma, the protagonist, Harrison, and especially Gabe, it was sad to see that there will be no more books about them The ending was also a bit bittersweet, though it was a very satisfying ending! It is just a bit hard to get around the whole time traveling and changing the past, therefore the present and future, but I loved it!
Pure blood picks up where we left off in Black Blood and since my reviews are always spoil free, I won't be able to tell you where huh? Anyways the third book centers more on Harrison and Gemma's relationship and also gives us more backstory to some of the other characters, including Gemma's parents. We also get another 'love interest' for Gemma that was brought by her parents. That was the only aspect in the book that I did not enjoy that much, I just felt that Harrison's jealousy was a bit unnecessary. However I was all for him being protective. Gemma's parents? oh boy, did I want to strangle them, the word 'overprotective' is an understatement! Even though Gemma turns 18, they still control every aspect of her life and wow, were they suffocating! We also don't get much of Dom and Ruby which is sad but we do get a lot of Gabe and I totally love him. Gabe was like her guardian, the one that showed her the truth and taught her how to really protect herself.
Overall Pure was a great conclusion to this amazing trilogy, it was filled with gasp worthy moments and the ending is just fantastic! throughout the book I was wondering how in the world will Milessa Pearl be able to end this whole mess we had, but I loved it! It wasn't the cliched ending, and I always salute an author that takes the unconventional route with endings. Thank you Melissa for providing such great enjoyment with this trilogyy, and I really can't recommend it enough to all you readers!

The final book in the Time Spirit Trilogy was impossible to put down and I literally read it until my eyelids shut then woke early to finish it.
Gemma is forced to make a selfless decision to ensure her gift is not used for evil.
Pearl added more twists and turns that I didn't see coming but managed to tie up most loose ends but leave enough mystery to make you wonder if there could be more to her series one day.

I enjoyed this story! Gemma/Lucia's a very strong and selfless girl! Harrison is so right for her! I love Gemma's dad! The ending made sense to me, but you have to read it to see if you agree!
My only thing was that I didn't get the very last sentence and it bugs me! There are still questions that I didn't get answers to, but that didn't stop my enjoyment of the book!Maybe there is another book someday!!

Another great read from Melissa Pearl that I couldn't put down. A real page turner that kept me guessing till the end. The trilogy is a fantastic combination of action, love, history, and a unique time-travel storyline. I love the characters and hope there might be a future installment for them.

I loved Pure Blood. It was a great read--plot twists, romance, and action. And a perfect end to a wonderful series. I'm sorry to say good-bye to Harrison and Gemma, but their story will stay in my heart. Thanks, Ms. Pearl! I can't wait for your next series.

I really enjoyed reading the last book to the Trilogy. Another very exciting story, which kept me guessing to the end. It was sad to say good-bye to the characters - you feel like you know them so well by now. Fantastic writing ! Would highly recommend.
