A thrilling start to a great trilogy!

Posted by on Oct 3, 2013

Amazon.com: The Way (Volumes of the Vemreaux 1) eBook: Mary Twomey: Books In a world not divided by race, creed or color, but by blood type, Blue Anders finds herself on the wrong end of fortune’s mercy. Born with a lesser blood type, Blue is raised in The Way, a work camp for A-bloods.   My review: The Way pulls you into a world and makes you never want to leave. The characters are beautifully constructed and their story is one you hold on to long after you set the book down. I enjoyed watching the relationship between Blue and Baird unfold and affect the other characters. Mary’s language is flawless and poetic. I don’t know if anyone could have written this story as well, let alone better, than Mary. The Way sends you on emotional roller coaster of sympathy and anger with fits of laughter in between. Once you pick it up, you won’t want to sleep until the entire trilogy is...
