Book Review: The CIA (Blood Tithe #3) By Glenn J Soucy

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars = FAVORITE!!

This is my favorite book of the series, book III out of IV books thus far published.  Each one is fantastic, but it was something more for me in this book.  There are many notions of why people are hiding, hunting and destroying that gives background to the choices of where they are in current day e.g. The CIA and The The CIA, Blood Tithe IIIAltered Ones.  However, then comes Jeremy and Jessica the scales of the known get tipped and the adventure again ensues.

This book series is great and to be honest, I can’t stop talking about it to any family member, friend, person on the street, that enjoys a good book.  If your up for a read over the TV drain, enjoy your own private mental series and pick up this eBook by the Indie author Glenn Soucy – you won’t regret it!!
