Golden Blood wasn't what I was expecting, it was so much more. From the beginning of the book the writing was likable, the story sucked you in, even though it might have seemed a bit too generic at first. However as I continued reading, and the paranormal aspect of the story was revealed, I fell in love.
Gemma, the protagonist, is a typical high school student. She struggles with the secret of her family, where they once had to move because she slipped the secret to one of her friends. When she meets Harrison Granger, really meets him, not ogling and fantasizing about him from afar, the struggle really begins. She doesn't know whether she should get close to him for she is endangering her family's secret and their existence. At the same time, she is falling hard for him, her sister's rule "keep it at fun and games" seemed to have worked... until it didn't.
I found the time traveling aspect of the story and the usage of it very fascinating. Her twin older brother and sister were great secondary characters, and her and Harrison's relationship was uncomplicated and free of misunderstandings, exactly how I like it. Golden Blood is the first book in a trilogy, the second and third books Black Blood and Pure Blood have already been released. I personally can't wait to get my hands on them to get back to Gemma's world!
