BLOOD STRIPE: The Susanna Marcasi Chronicles by Gina Maria DiNicolo
Since I could not skip over the “bad words” (I write tongue in cheek) I dove in. BLOOD STRIPE is definitely a page turner one the reader must pay attention to as he or she moves forward in the book. Every character is important every event has you wondering: Did the author make this up or is this something this U. S. Naval Academy graduate witness in real life?
It was too intense for my squeamish personality which is why I suspect this book is even better than I say it is. If you like true to life fiction you will love this book. If you are a woman considering entering the military- you might want to read BLOOD STRIPE: The Susanna Marcasi Chronicles by Gina Maria DiNicolo. Unlike going to the movies you can’t close your eyes when you get to the “Oh my” parts. (Page turner is so cliche’!)
I was trying to remember the last time I read a book with this much action? I had to go back to when I was a Walter Mosely and James Patterson fan, over ten years ago. Is BLOOD STRIPE as good as books by Mosely or Patterson? Close enough to make you want to read it.
