Keira Kelly has Changed and now must learn about her powers and new role as the Clan Kelly heir. In order to do that, it looks like she will have to leave her home in Rio Seco and travel to Canada. In fact, her clan leader and great-great-grandmother Gigi has commanded it.

Keira will have several members of her support system along for the trip. Her brother Tucker and his vampire lover, Niko, and her cousin Daffyd ap Geraint will make the journey with her. Unfortunately, her own partner, vampire leader Adam Walker, will not be traveling to British Columbia. He must stay behind to tend to Tribe business.

Keira is not eager to return to the Clan. She has always felt on the outside looking in, and her transition as regular member to the Heir is uncomfortable. She never wanted this kind of responsibility. She just wanted to be left in peace. Her Change has brought a whole new set of problems, and learning how to control her gifts is imperative.

In the third book of the Blood Lines series, author Maria Lima gives readers a lot to process. Things have definitely not been as they appeared to be, and the revelations in Blood Kin put a whole new spin on things. I have enjoyed this book more than Blood Bargain because of the new information. It makes the characters seem even more believable in their inner turmoil. This is a fine urban fantasy and is gathering momentum with each new offering. I am excited to see where it will all lead.
