Review: Golden Blood (Time Spirit Trilogy #1) by Melissa Pearl

Gemma Hart never knows when her father is going to whisk her back in time. Her toes start tingling and she has a few minutes to find a secret haven where she can disintegrate and appear in another time and place. While “across the line,” her training and skills are put to the test as she completes a mission that will change history for the lucky few her father has selected.
Gemma's parents are adamant that secrecy is paramount to her family’s safety. If people knew what they were capable of, they could be "used and abused", as her mother always says. Afraid she might accidentally utter the truth and break the ancient oath of her people, Gemma spends her school days as a loner. Only one thing can throw her sheltered life askew... Harrison Granger.
Harrison never expected to talk to the strange Hart girl, but after a brief encounter he can't stop thinking about her. He begins a campaign to chisel away her icy veneer and is met with unexpected consequences. As he slowly wins this girl over, he enters a surreal world that has him fighting to keep his newfound love and his life.

 This is a very good start for the Time Spirit Trilogy. It is a real page turner. I have to admit that I was a little confused in the beginning. The author does a good job of keeping you guessing what the heroin actually is. I never hit a slow spot or lost interest. The storyline is fast paced, interesting & exciting. It is like a whirlwind that you get sucked into, tossed around & then set firmly on your feet. I enjoying this story very much. All the supporting characters are fun loving, easy going, supportive, Nagy and hard to deal with.... just like a real family. The main character takes it all in stride and tries to do her best. You can feel that the people in this book really love one another. It is just a good, solid and well rounded start. I can not wait to see exactly where the next adventure goes. Everyone should give this one a try. Hope you like it!
