My review

I listened to the audio book of Blood Orange and must say, right up front, that the narrator did an excellent job. I loved this book. It started off really well for me with an very intriguing event that got you right into the story quickly. The book was fast paced and full of action and I though the twists and turns were very good. The book ended up going in a direction that I hadn’t anticipated at all but Don Massenzio really tied the pieces together very well at the end. What appealed to me the most about this story is that it is so very possible. As I listened I could just imagine something like this happening and people having to deal with the terrible aftermath of an attack of the nature detailed in the book. I enjoyed the characters, in particular, Navel Officer Brad Rafferty, a man of great integrity and who has experienced one of the worst situations that his job could offer. The main female character was also very intelligent and determined and I appreciated these qualities being highlighted in a female in the US military. That being said, Maria’s character was very realistic and her contribution not feel at all unreasonable. I listed to the whole book in three days which certainly highlights how much I enjoyed it because I am easily distracted from reading, or listening in this case, by work commitments and my own writing.
