Worlds within worlds await through the Maya Bloodgate Dr Jaid Merritt doesn't do digs The last time she ventured into the jungle someone died Now she's content to decipher Maya glyphs from pictures sent to her by her famous archaeologist father But when he goes missing while trying to perform a ritu Deep in the caves of Guatemala a secret ancient ritual takes place opening up a gateway to the Mayan underworld Months later Dr Jaid Merritt receives the video feed only to find out her father was the man leading the ritual Despite her fear of going on dig sites Jaid must decide whether to face her fears and find her father at the Mayan temple or risk losing him foreverBloodgate Guardian was awesome I really enjoyed this book filled with action adventure a little bit of romance and a lot of suspense One of the many strengths of this book was the characters and story pacing I loved that Jaid is not a generic kick butt heroine who rejects all feeling except her libido to do whatever needs to be done She has a weakness she injured her knee as a child during a dig with her parents and although she shows signs of strength she isn't afraid to break down with vulnerability when the weight of the world falls on her shoulders She's a realistic heroine who shoes genuine fear and hesitance before going into a situation but when the chips are down the girl's got moxie and will do what needs to be done In other words she's a great 3 dimensional characterI also loved the hero Ruin especially his and his brother's name and going into the book I tried to stay away from any spoilers or too much blurb info so it was a surprise to see how he ties into the story and not only serves as a gatekeeper in the temple but also a bridge for Jaid and her father as it ties into the story Ruin is an appealing hero but make no bones about it he is also a ruthless killer with an edge I love dangerous heroes and Ruin definitely ualifies as he teeters between killing Jaid or saving her at times He makes no excuses for who and what he is and still there are ualities that make him redeemable so that the reader cheers him onAnother thing I really liked was the tension that was built over the course of the story Sometimes romances feel manipulated in that character's bodies react to one another within seconds of meeting each other instead of allowing the tension and need to grow naturally over time In Bloodgate Guardian the characters reacted to pressing matters and only later in the story did they start finding each other attractive Even then it slowly took its time while they focused on what was important which added to the will they get together or won't they that also added to the suspense in the story and made the actual consummation all the rewarding after what they've been through I love it when this course of action is taken because it keeps me guessing and flipping pages to find out how things unfold and how or if they will be together after the last pageAnother thing I really liked about the story is the dialogue The story started out with a bang of an opening line He never hated his magic until it compelled him to kill and just kept floating from there Another fave of mine is If men were as easy to decipher as Maya glyphs then perhaps Jaid would have been able to translate beware carved in her boyfriend's handsome forehead and saved herself the trouble Jaid often referred to herself as the Un Indiana Jones which I thought was cute and during her revelation to how she hurt her knee and carries guilt due to her mother's death there's a lot that's revealed through clever dialogue For instance Do you know what they call me in the archeology circles The Un Indiana Jones Head tilted he studied her a small smile flickering on his face I have no idea what that means but it amuses you Yeah she admitted nodding But it's embarrassing too Indiana Jones is a movie archeologist an action adventure hero I've built up ruins and archeology in my mind believing I had to be a great risk0taker an action adventure heroine of my own Deep down your heart you're still the little girl trying to impress her father Ouch but oh so trueNot only is there a great overall conflict there is also a great inner conflict as evidenced in the dialogue above Jaid's relationship with her father has been strained ever since her mother died at the dig where Jaid injured herself and ever since then she's stayed away from digs while her father became well known for his There's a lot she has to overcome outside and within herself that was a joy to exploreOne last aspect out of many I really enjoyed about this story was the world building and the history of the Mayan culture I have to admit I didn't know much about it going in but after reading this I'm eager to read about the ancient civilization I love how it was weaved into every aspect of the story and it helped drive the story at every turn I also got to learn a lot about the belief systems and mythology all of which was very interestingI have a few Joely Sue Burkhart books in my TBR that I've been collecting from Drollerie Press one of my fave publishers and after reading Bloodgate Guardian I'm eager to dive into them Ms Burkhart has a way of writing a great story with snappy prose and dialogue to accompany such well rounded characters I'm jazzed that Bloodgate Guardian was my first taste of her work
