Silver and Stone

Silver and Stone (Bloodlines, #1)
by J.D. Thompson

Published August 3, 2011

This book was provided to us by the author, in exchange for an honest review.

Welcome to high school high society hell, where last season’s slingbacks can warrant a lunch table demotion, the wrong date will knock you off the it-list and behind every pair of oversized Chanel sunglasses lies a secret people are dying to keep. As if senior year at Weatherford Preparatory School wasn’t hard enough, sixteen year old Alexis Bardolph had to add school outcast to the curriculum. A new found notoriety following a family scandal, her lacrosse star boy-friend dumping her for a former BFF and a string of perpetually bad hair days were among the many things going wrong in her already turbulent teenage life. But when the haunting nightmares that have plagued her since childhood begin to take an eerily tangible form and several Holler Creek residents are reported missing, Alexis can’t help but wonder if there isn’t more to her hellish dreams than meets the eye. The unexpected arrival of a mysterious and dangerously handsome new student ultimately leads Alexis to troubling truths that not even her wildest imagination could have conjured.


Silver and Stone was my first Paranormal Romance, unfortunately since I didn't know this going into the book I was a little caught off guard when it became suddenly apparent near the end. This being said; I still thoroughly enjoyed myself. Alexis is lovable! I was heartbroken for her many times and felt that she deserved so much more especially considering all she's been through. I found the instant connection between Alexis and Lucas a little unbelievable; however, toward the end of the book it all made sense. I'm hoping that many of the questions that I had will be answered in the next book. Thompson is a very talented writer. I love her descriptions and her ability to grab your attention. While I don't know if I would consider this genre a favorite I definitely have to find out what happens next in the Bloodlines Series.

3.5/5 stars
