Rating:  3.5 Stars

Disclosure of Material Connection:  I received this book for review from Loving the Book and the author.  I was not compensated nor was I required to write a positive review.  The opinions I have expressed are my own.  I am posting this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255:  "Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising".

War is coming… Is William’s family ready?

The mysterious appearance of a young girl—brutalized and half dead—has thrown the Crew into a heightened state of disquiet. Aurora and her evil pack of Damned have declared war, and William now wonders if, somehow, the seemingly-innocent girl may be employed in some way as a dangerous weapon in the coming battle.
The revelation of an ancient relic may deliver the critical aid the Crew so direly requires. Its newly-discovered power enables William to delve into the strange girl’s memories, but will the answers be too horrifying for the Crew to accept? Along with the newfound strength found in this lost treasure comes a treacherous caveat, and William must decide if all of the gains gifted to his family are worth the precarious risks it demands.
A Fine Line: The Ancients Part II is the continuing story in the A Fine Line series. This third book chronicling the story of William Healthaway and his family—the descendants of an ancient race possessed of powers they are only just learning to control. Fans of historical high drama, with traces of fantasy thrown into the mix, will enjoy this sweeping saga of romance, war, family, death and the supernatural. Enter a world where no one is safe from the wicked clutches of the Damned. Where love, laughter, family and all that is held dear wavers on the knife-edge between life and our eternal slumber.

However the newest edition of this book will be coming out Fall of 2015.

 This story blurs the lines of actual history and dark fantasy.  It’s a great way to explain the unexplainable by showing that there are shifters among us and have been throughout history.  It’s a story that also shows that war does not discriminate.  Don’t expect a love story in this one.

I don’t feel that any one character stands out.  This story is about a group of people and they are known as the Crew.  The definition for Crew is “a group of people who work closely together”.  And that is so true here.  It’s a story that has a lot going on.  This is not a story that you will get done in a short amount of time.  It’s one where you have no choice but to go slowly.  If you try to read too fast you may miss something that’s important to the story.

You should also be aware that this is not the book to start this series with.  In order to understand the Crew and what they are about, you need to start at the beginning.  Also, if you love to read books when you go to lunch or on break than this is not for you.  It’s not a book to try to squeeze into a short period of time.  But if you don’t mind always putting the book down then you might be ok.  It is a story that will be continued so it will be interesting to see where the author is going with the series.
