I really wanted to like Blood Brothers, but I didn't. I did not like Quinn at all. She was too perfect and very pushy. Caleb was like a cardboard cut-out character; there was no substance to him at all, IMO. The plot started off okay, but started to get a little ridiculous as the story progressed. I can say that I will not be reading the next two in this series.

An entertaining read with engaging folklore elements.
Sets the tone for the rest of the trilogy. ( )

I enjoyed this story. It was more novel than romance which made it good.

This first book in the Sign of Seven trilogy left me as interested in how things work out with the three couples as much as in the Hawkins Hollow curse itself. As horror stories go, it wasn’t the kind to keep you awake at night. In fact, the contemporary romance angle overshadowed any of the supernatural goings-on. I liked the easy flow of the writing - it had me thinking of Stephen King - but that may have been partly because of the subject matter. There was just enough closure at the end that I didn't feel like I was left hanging but there was enough of a hook that I'll definitely be reading the next two books of the series. ( )

Book description
In the small village of Hawkins Hollow, three best friends who share the same birthday sneak off into the woods for a sleepover the evening before turning 10. But a night of pre-pubescent celebration turns into a night of horror as their blood brother oath unleashes a three-hundred year curse.
Twenty-one years later, Cal Hawkins and his friends have seen their town plagued by a week of unexplainable evil events two more times - every seven years. With the clock winding down on the third set of seven years, someone else has taken an interest in the town's folklore. Quinn is a well known scholar of local legends, and despite Cal's protests, insists on delving in the mystery. But when the first signs of evil appear months early, it's not only the town Cal tries to protect, but also his heart.

And twenty-one years later, it will end in a showdown between evil and the boys who have become men-and the women who love them.
