Review Tour: Verona Blood by Lili St. Germain


San Francisco is going to burn if the coveted princess of California’s criminal underworld isn’t returned to her family in one piece…

Avery Capulet is missing.

Taken by a madman. Kept in the dark.

She might not survive.

He’ll use her body. Destroy her mind. All before he ever lays a hand on her.

Rome Montague is a drug dealer. A criminal. A thief.

And he needs the secrets Avery and her family are keeping – even if it means cutting them out of her pretty Capulet flesh.

Rome Montague is missing – but nobody will miss him.

Not that it matters; After the things he’s done to this girl, he doesn’t deserve to be found.

Prepare to step into the dark and bloody underworld of California, as Lili St. Germain brings you a modern retelling of Romeo and Juliet, in the same vein as her bestselling Gypsy brothers series.

The CALIFORNIA BLOOD series, set in the criminal underbelly of San Francisco, follows two warring families who are ruled by blood, power and twisted desire.

"Never sin against your family, because in our religion, there is no forgiveness. There is only loyalty, or death."

Lili St. Germain is one of the few authors whose books I'll blindly pick up. She always comes with interesting plot-lines and characters. What she in particularly excels in is creating the perfect anti-hero. She always delivers great dark romances that feed my gray soul. Verona Blood is a great start to the California Blood series. It started out with a bang and I loved everything that happened in this book, the good and the bad. Lili does such an incredible job in setting the mood, and the characters just fit the story perfectly. This book was a pretty quick read, and the end left me wanting more. However, I think she has so much more in store for us in the upcoming book(s).

"Being complicit in the downfall of somebody you used to love burns hotter than any sickness can touch you."

I loved that the history between Avery and Rome was explained in pieces, instead of one huge chunk. Which I thought was a smart move, because this is the first book and sometimes I like to be kept in suspense. The build-up was great and it gave me enough time to connect to the characters, and understand a bit more of their backgrounds and personalities. The writing was great, the book was dark enough and all the things that already happened in Verona Blood has me even more excited to see what will happen next. I am so intrigued by many characters in this book, and I can't wait to see which direction Lili will take this book. She is know to throw some crazy plot twists the readers way, so I am expecting crazy things to happen in the upcoming books.

"We're in the wild, down here, and we're nothing but animals writhing in sweat and blood."
