Blood Rebellion (Supernatural Intelligence Agency Book #1) by Nadine Travers is an urban fantasy- a paranormal detective story with supernatural elements, action, adventure, drama, intrigue, mystery, and danger. It is fast paced short story, which makes for quick and easy reading. I was immediately intrigued by the title, cover, and blurb. The blurb held so much promise, and I really do love a great urban fantasy.
But having said that, when I purchased my copy of this book, I hadn’t realised that I had already read it, last year, as part of the “Rogue Skies” Anthology. As I began reading, it felt so familiar, and as the story went on, I realised where I’d seen/read it before. I had enjoyed it the first time I read it as part of the anthology, and it still had the same appeal this time around. But reading it again now, as book one in the series, I would like to have had more character details, backstory(ies), story/series development, and depth- as a lot of the story, for me, seemed a bit rushed or a little cut short. I think the story would have benefited from being just a little longer with added details and development. It would have elevated it to a whole new level.
Don’t get me wrong, the story is well written and intriguing, I just felt like I wanted to know more.
I will be following the series to see what happens- but I do hope the next book/s have got more detail and development.
Thank you, Nadine Travers.
