Terminal blend by Lori Pescatore

From Amazon - An Epic battle is brewing. Can Julie's newly unleashed abilities help save her and her friends? Prepare for a war of otherworldly proportions where the unexpected becomes the norm and nothing is what it seems. Is Julie the key to saving the Earth and her people or will she once again need the help of her Earthling friends? Not everyone will survive as the playing field shifts and consequences will extend throughout the universe. Terminal Blend is the final installment in The Blend Trilogy. In Human Blend we met a girl named Julie on the run from her past. Her unique abilities made her hunted prey. Along the way she encountered some amazing people like Eli, an Earthling who wanted nothing more than to protect her, and Marcus, who was like her and explained the truth of their origins. Add into the mix a boy named Austin, who unearthed a few secrets of his own. In Earth Blend we heard the back story to the supernatural creatures introduced in book one. In the final installment, the lies mount and Julie must find a way to cope with the new threat that could destroy everything and everyone she holds dear. Come immerse yourself in the final chapter of this amazing trilogy. 

Terminal Blend is the third and final book in the blend series by Pescatore.  If you're going to read this book, I strongly suggest you start with Human Blend and then Earth Blend before moving on to this one.  Though it is possible to read this book as a standalone, I was nearly halfway through it before I really had a full grasp of what was going on.  There are a few attempts at explaining what's going on, but this is a new world with a large cast of new characters that can be incredibly confusing.  This book begins where the last one left off and if you don't already know what's going on, you're going to struggle.

Once I was able to figure out what was going on, I fell in love!  This is a wonderful new world that is connected to others.  Don't worry, there are still some humans, but most of the characters are 'superhuman'.  We have Blends and Earthlings and even some transforming aliens.  If you're looking for action, you definitely won't be disappointed.  A few of the scenes were wonderfully gruesome and I was so thankful that the sex scenes were tastefully left!  I wish I'd have read the first two books in the series before starting this one, but mostly because I feel like I've been cheated out of some interesting information.  It's kind of like starting the Lord of the Rings trilogy with the last movie.  It's great, but you know there's just so much more that you've missed.

This was a quick, exciting read.  No characters are safe from death!  What I love most about this series is the unexpected nature.  Once I think I have things figured out, I find out I don't.  Then the roller coaster starts up again and I don't even have time to try to figure out what's going to happen next because I'm screaming with glee!  A definite must read for you paranormal/sci-fi addicts out there!

The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.

Thank you for taking time out of your day to leave a comment. It's appreciated.
