Review 'The Blood Led Her' by Robert DiGiacomo

Claudia doesn't care who Jesus is supposed to be. Her husband Decius has a job to do-kill him. She helps bathe him when he gets home, grasping the scroll that carried his orders. When Claudia accidentally swallows some of the blood of Jesus, Decius suddenly dies.

Centuries later in Philadelphia, Al Campo's trying to distance himself from government agencies counting on him to do their dirty work. He unexpectedly saves Eva, a twelve-year-old girl, when he's almost shot by an assailant chasing her down. She can't explain much about why she's totally alone, and she won't part with her backpack. Al later discovers the scroll she carries as they visit his sick friend. What he can't begin to imagine is its immense power.

Only two things are for certain. Whoever's after her won't give up, and Al's all she has. So it's a race for survival as he remains her protector. But in the end, who's protecting whom?

Author Robert DiGiacomo gives readers a fast-paced thrill ride in 'The Blood Led Her', a suspense thriller that rapidly leads readers through its pages to reach the conclusion.

My Review:

When I first received a request to read ‘The Blood Led Her’ I knew this book would be different than my ‘normal’ reads. Since I occasionally love to read books out of my comfort zone, and this one really looked exciting, I decided to give it a try.

‘The Blood Led Her’ really wasn’t the book for me. Although I did find the writing captivating enough to keep me interested in the read.. I just couldn’t really get into the story. The main character Al Campo, finds himself saving a young twelve year old girl and soon he finds himself in some unexpected adventures. This was definitely interesting to read. The author definitely has a way of writing that keeps you hooked. And I never once expected what would happen next.

But overall this book just wasn’t ‘fun’ for me. I didn’t really get the whole ‘Jesus’ part and near the end I was completely lost. So I find it really hard to review this book. Overall I feel like I missed something, and just couldn’t really connect to this read. This had nothing the do with the authors writing, since I totally got that the writing was good.

I guess that I just have to conclude, that this book was good enough.. but not for me. If your into a thrilling and enticing story that’s doesn’t go the way you think it will.. Than this is a book you have to check out. 

My Rating:

About the Author:

I grew up in the Philadelphia area where both stories are set. I have a passion for history and working in Philadelphia has given me the ability to include historically accurate and colorful details in my novels. 
I've been a member of the local glazier's union for twenty years and I am now an independent contractor. I live with my family outside of Philadelphia.
