About Ronald Griffin

Ronald Griffin is a 31 year old Author who grew up in Georgia and still lives there today. His current writing style includes paranormal fantasy and horror. He has been writing since he was 9 years old when he wrote a Tiny Toons Adventure skit for his class and it was well received. From there, he was absorbed with writing about Superheros but once high school hit, the supernatural started calling him, especially the werewolves. This is where his latest The Blood Lives Saga was born. You can either find him locked away in his writing cave or at his local Cracker Barrel where he supports his fantasy genre reading habit. His Author idol is the husband and wife writing team Ilona Andrews. He has thoroughly enjoyed their magic series novels and feels encouraged that they are from his same state. When not writing, you can find Ronald spending time with his daughters (ages 3 and 9) and his son (age 7). He can be found spending time making precious moments with them and hopefully passing along his writing bug to them.

After reading the reviews for Blood Stained Lives, I was excited to get the chance to read and review it. I must say, first and foremost, that the novel gives action, revenge, romance, humor, and last but certainly not least, a powerful package of a unique cast of characters that have their personalities wonderfully portrayed. And, the relationship between Namon and Aluana..... :) wow!

Unlike the onslaught of Vampire/Werewolf novels that are flooding the market in recent years, Blood Stained Lives creates a world much bigger. It is truly a novel for every realm of urban fantasy reader without the rehashed, overused characters and plot lines. If you are like me, looking for something different, you will certainly get it with this novel!

With that said, though, I have to admit that I, personally, struggled with reading the novel. Not because of the story, but because of the technical writing structure. A very big rule in the writing world is 'show don't tell', and in my opinion, the book throughout fell short with showing exposition to the characters emotional thoughts and the events of the story. Instead the events and feelings are told, not shown, giving a very detailed feel like a screen play, as if to say 'then this happens, then this happens, then this happens'.

In the end, however, aside from a few grammar errors and show don't tell errors, Ron Griffin gives a fun, exciting, and engaging urban fantasy novel and I can't wait to see more from him and watch him grow as a writer.

Although I personally had a hard time getting into this book in the early chapters; it turned out to be rather good. I am actually interested in seeing where this could go. Blood Stained Lives seems to be just the beginning for this Author.
