Review of Golden Blood | Black Blood 
It is only a matter of time before Gemma's parents find out she traveled through time to bring Harrison back into existence. The fear of being found out is a heavy weight on her shoulders, but she refuses to give up on everything she's fought for. Harrison is worth the risk.

The couple draws closer together as they battle opposing forces from all sides. They stay strong until Gemma's parents welcome an exchange student into their home. Simeon, a gorgeous Californian, is as smooth as coffee and, supposedly, a fellow time spirit. Gemma's parents expect her to take him everywhere and, of course, fall in love with him. After all, he is the boy they have chosen for her.

No longer able to sneak off alone, Gemma must watch every step as she waits for the inevitable nightmare to catch up to her. Her parents ultimate goal is to get that last necklace and open the box hidden in their safe. If they do, Gemma knows her entire world will unravel.
As the danger mounts, Gemma must decide if she has the courage to make the ultimate sacrifice to save the ones she loves and stop to her parents' destructive plans.
Pure blood is the third and final book in the Time Spirit Trilogy. I read the first one two months ago, then picked up the second one and after finishing it I immediately picked up Pure Blood because I couldn't wait to find out how this Melissa Pearl will conclude this addicting trilogy! I can't lie, I really grew fond of Gemma, the protagonist, Harrison, and especially Gabe, it was sad to see that there will be no more books about them The ending was also a bit bittersweet, though it was a very satisfying ending! It is just a bit hard to get around the whole time traveling and changing the past, therefore the present and future, but I loved it!

Pure blood picks up where we left off in Black Blood and since my reviews are always spoil free, I won't be able to tell you where huh? Anyways the third book centers more on Harrison and Gemma's relationship and also gives us more backstory to some of the other characters, including Gemma's parents. We also get another 'love interest' for Gemma that was brought by her parents. That was the only aspect in the book that I did not enjoy that much, I just felt that Harrison's jealousy was a bit unnecessary. However I was all for him being protective. Gemma's parents? oh boy, did I want to strangle them, the word 'overprotective' is an understatement! Even though Gemma turns 18, they still control every aspect of her life and wow, were they suffocating! We also don't get much of Dom and Ruby which is sad but we do get a lot of Gabe and I totally love him. Gabe was like her guardian, the one that showed her the truth and taught her how to really protect herself.

Overall Pure was a great conclusion to this amazing trilogy, it was filled with gasp worthy moments and the ending is just fantastic! throughout the book I was wondering how in the world will Milessa Pearl be able to end this time whole mess we had, but I loved it! It wasn't the cliched ending, and I always salute an author that takes the unconventional route with endings. Thank you Melissa for providing such great enjoyment with this trilogyy, and I really can't recommend it enough to all you readers!
4 musical stars!
