Review~ The Blood That Cries in the Ground

by Gregory Bellarmine

"The Greatest Myth Ever Dispelled" Italy. A tough master of novices, Father Dante encounters the bold young priest Antonio who challenges his identity and accuses him of being the Saint Nicholas. But despite the Father faking his death, a determined Antonio discovers a rather alive Dante arrayed in kilt and armor. In return for Antonio’s silence—and to protect the town from attracting all manner of darkness—Dante agrees to tell his life story. Without explanation, Dante orders Antonio to meet him at night in the abandoned Cathedral, the site of a former battle that the Church has kept secret for a generation. Until today. The Criskindl. Ice Steeds. The Unborn. Saint. From the Dark Ages’ when Poet-Sorcerers ruled kings, to the Holy Land when a new civilization was rising, to Revolutionary France where love is lost and gained, Father Dante pursues the one responsible for both his master and his mother’s deaths: Black Peter, his brother. “The Blood That Cries in the Ground will grab the reader by the throat with a death grip from which it is impossible to break free.” -Reviewed by Bil Howard for Readers' Favorite

My Review:

Disclaimer: I received this book in exchange for an honest review. Review is 100% my honest thoughts and feelings!

The plot to this book was really good. The story line was awesome. St. Nicholas on a whole new level! Its deep, dark, and mysterious with lots of twists and turns. The battles in the book were epic. This book had the supernatural along with a feel of medieval to it. This was the first book I read from the author and the first book in this type of genre and I was very pleased! 

At the beginning, I was a bit confused with following the characters and it was a bit of a rough start but after I got through that it was smooth sailing. 

The characters in this book are well written. The characters flow evenly and stay true to their selves. They have depth and are portrayed amazingly  with description. You actually feel your right there engaging with them in everything that they do. I also love the characters names and how they have a medieval ancient times feel to the name. 

This book and plot was very unique. I was surprised and mesmerized the whole way through with the twist and turns and the mystery. The battles held me captive and I was turning pages to finish this. 

The book, once I got over the little hump I had in the beginning, flowed amazingly well all the way to the very conclusion of the book.  I was very satisfied reading this book and would definitely recommend it to others to read. It was nice reading this book especially around this time of the year and season. 

I'm giving this book 4.5/5 stars and that's only cause of the little bump in the road I had reading in the beginning.
