A fast-paced thriller for fans of Ted Dekker's The Books of Mortals, Dan Brown's The Da Vinci Code, and BBC America's hit series Orphan Black. Emily Jacobs is the descendant of a serial killer.

Filled with adrenaline, romance, and reversals, The Progeny is the present-day saga of a 400-year-old war between the uncanny descendants of "Blood Countess" Elizabeth Bathory, the most prolific female serial killer of all time, and a secret society dedicated to erasing every one of her descendants.

I know you're not suppose to but I judge books by their covers all the time. When I saw this on the shelf last July I know I HAD to read it! I'm so glad I decided to check it out because it's now one of my favorite books. I reread this 2 days before the sequel Firstborn came out. I recommend this series! I love Tosca Lee's books!

SO. GOOD. The book is, at a lot of points, very confusing--and I think that's a good thing. The protagonist is, throughout much of the book, supposed to be very confused about what to do, who she can trust, and who's on your side; Lee lets you discover everything with her, leaving you equally confused as her through much of the book which I think lends an air of urgency and really draws the reader into the story.

I checked this out on Friday and finished it on Saturday. Now (Thursday) I just put it on hold again because I haven't been able to stop thinking about it and I NEED to read it again. I can't wait for the sequel!!!
