Product Description

Product Description

Five years ago, Keelyn Samuels’s armed, mentally ill stepfather took her family hostage in their house in rural Colorado. She and her half-sister Raven made it out alive, but others did not. Authorities blamed the father’s frequent hallucinations about a being named Lucent, but in the end, even the best of the FBI’s hostage negotiators failed to overcome the man’s delusions and end the standoff peacefully.

SWAT team member Lee Watson was there that day. He watched it all unfold and was able to pull Keelyn and Raven from the grip of their demon-possessed father. Though partially successful, his team had still failed, and the outcome of that day—and that tortured family—has continued to plague Lee ever since. Though unusual for SWAT to reconnect with survivors, Lee bumped into Keelyn two years after the crisis, and they both found some peace in their budding relationship. But peace is hard to maintain when the memory returns . . . in the flesh.

Lucent is back, and he’s no hallucination. In fact, he is a very real person with dangerous motives. He has kidnapped Raven’s daughter, and--Keelyn worries--maybe has hurt Raven as well. Though she is estranged from her sister, Keelyn feels the immediate need to find Raven and save what family she has left. But when others who were involved in that fateful day start dying, some by mysterious circumstances, Keelyn wonders if she and Lee can emerge unscathed a second time.

The highly anticipated second installment of the Bloodline Trilogy explores the boundaries of faith and family and what happens when both are put to the test.

5.0 out of 5 stars Warning: Don't begin reading this at bedtime. 13 Feb 2013
By Anne Baxter Campbell - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Did you read Jordyn Redwood's first book in the Bloodline Trilogy, Proof? If you did (or not), you might recognize the name Lucent. Lucent was the presumably hallucinatory man who forced John Samuals to kill his family. The only two to survive the massacre are Keelyn and Raven, Samuals' step-daughter and daughter.

Keelyn sits in her favorite eatery, Ruby's Diner, waiting for Lee, her fiance' and a police officer, when a stranger takes the seat at the counter beside her. He claims to be Lucent. Then he informs her he brought a child here, Raven's two-year-old daughter, to give to her and that if Keelyn tried to find him or Raven he will return and kill both her and the child.

The stranger leaves, and Lee arrives just as another woman hurries into the diner to tell him about a car in the parking lot containing two people: the driver is apparently passed out, and a child is crying in the back seat.

The driver turns out to be John Samuals' former psychologist. The crying child is Raven's daughter.

As the story unfolds, deceptions, murders, and mysterious deadly illnesses abound. Keelyn doesn't know who to believe, where her sister might be, or how to keep the baby safe from someone who wants to harm her.

I have to give this four and a half thumbs up. Just don't begin reading it at bedtime. I can tell you from experience you will be suffering from sleep deprivation the following day.

5.0 out of 5 stars Review of Poison by Jordyn Redwood 16 May 2013
By Joshua - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
In the suspenseful follow up to Jordyn Redwood's Proof, the stakes are raised as bodies start dropping from Chapter 1 and on. Poison takes what was already a great start to a trilogy and builds upon it in a great way. While Poison might not be what I would necessarily call a direct sequel, it takes the events from Proof and incorporates them into a great story that never really lets up and keeps the questions coming as you try to figure out just what exactly is going on. We see old characters and new ones, see a little follow up to Proof, and have a great new mystery to solve. This story had me so intrigued from the start, I just couldn't put it down; this is one book series that seriously makes me have to think and not just mindlessly read. As a Psychology major in college, I gotta say that I loved the incorporation of a few psychological concepts in the plotline for Poison; and I even learned quite a bit about everyone's favorite eight-legged friends. I am loving this series, and I cannot wait to read Peril. Jordyn is really making a name for herself in literature, and really incorporates strong women characters with complex personalities that don't just fit into the stereotypical mold. I loved Poison and I highly recommend it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Didn't Think It Could Get Better Than The First One.... 6 Mar 2013
By Deena Peterson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
...but, it did!

If you've selected a copy of Jordyn Redwood's latest medical thriller, thinking you're in for a suspenseful treat, you need to rethink that. No, you, my dear reading friend...you are in for much, much more.

"Poison" is a nail-biting, grip-the-pages-so-hard-your-fingers-ache thrill ride that will take you places you never see coming, introduce you to characters that refuse to pack up and go home once the story ends, and will have you longing for the third (and unfortunately final) book in this stellar trilogy.

The second novel in Jordyn's debut series kicks off five years after the events of "Proof, Jordyn's debut novel. You don't necessarily have to read it first to understand "Poison", but I recommend you read it during your lifetime.

Keelyn was one of the few survivors of that tragic day on her step-father's property. Tormented by a personality called Lucent, he did the unspeakable. Even the law enforcement officers on site were shaken by the events that unfolded.

Flash forward five years, and now Keelyn has built a relationship with a young FBI agent and leader of the SWAT team that rescued her and a younger sister. Lee Watson only wants to love and protect her...so why is that suddenly so complicated?

Fans of Jordyn's novels will be delighted to see Dr. Lilly and her rescuer, Detective Nathan Long back in this one. New characters to love abound...Sophia is adorable (when she's not sick and screaming at the top of her lungs), and those knitting ladies are a hoot!

Even some background characters are memorable, like Lee's Confidential Informant...well, he's not LEE'S, but he could be...anyway, he's cool. Jordyn creates memorable people who move in and make themselves at home in your imagination.

It's just, you see...not all of them are people you want hanging around for long. But I can't really divulge who those might be. You'll have to read for yourself to find out who's who. And the outcome is a doozie!

Be warned, oh late-night-reader: the curves are steep, the turns are hairpin and the emotion is palpable. "Poison" is oh, so good! In fact, I believe in Jordyn's work so much I went out and bought my own copy! (Been promised a freebie, so keep watching for a rare giveaway opportunity).

Jordyn Redwood is an author on my top ten list of "Oh, please give me that book!" authors (i.e., must read), and "Poison" is highly recommended. Don't forget about "Proof", the first novel in her Bloodline Trilogy...but this one is waaaaayyyyy better...and that's saying something!

5.0 out of 5 stars Could Not Put Down 26 April 2013
By Mikeylynn - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Poison by Jordyn Redwood is a fast paced thriller that follows the life of Keelyn Blake and her search for a murderer.
This book grabbed me from the first chapter and kept my interest throughout the book. There is continuous mystery and suspense and I really had no idea what was going to happen next. Hypnosis, venom, a sweet little girl, and a scary past that brings people to do terrible things makes this story great. Jordyn Redwood is a good author who adds just enough detail to keep the story spinning. There is a lot going on in this book, I had to read carefully at some points to fully understand everything that was going on.
This is a great book, highly recommend and I will be reading more from this author.

"I received this book for free from Kregel in exchange for an honest review".

5.0 out of 5 stars A Psychological Thriller! 16 Nov 2013
By Believer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
"Poison" is the second chilling tale in Jordyn Redwood's medical and crime thriller series, the Bloodline Trilogy that begins five years after tragic domestic violence tore Keelyn Blake's life apart. As the story opens Keelyn is waiting for her fiancée at a local restaurant when she's confronted by Lucent a personification in the flesh of an evil that was once her stepfather's hallucination. Arrogantly he questions her faith and brags about kidnapping her niece. What Keelyn doesn't realize is that with this meeting murder will dog her footsteps and that the search for her half sister and a secret that haunts her fiancée Captain Lee Watson will lead into danger that will not only test her faith but could damage relationships she holds so dear. Woven into this psychological thriller where darkness and evil lurk in murder, deception, betrayal, cruelty and madness there are strong elements of redemption, forgiveness, love, and faith.

Jordyn Redwood focuses not only on a captivating story that combines character development, a moral problem and choices, but builds on the fear and anxiety that escalates as the plot twists and turns exploring the conflicted emotions, and motives of the antagonists. It is a story that sends a strong message about holding fast to faith when life seems to spiral downward into darkness and despair.

The personalities of the characters are complex and change as events heat up. Keelyn Blake haunted by a tragic loss is determined, brave and conscientious but struggles to keep a clear perspective and to forgive when challenged by white lies and half truths. Captain Lee Watson, a dedicated and shrewd SWAT officer hides a secret that could not only crush his spirit but destroy the love and faith that strengthens him. Into the fray add the indomitable will of Detective Nathan Long, the committed and calm assurance of Dr. Lilly Reeves, and the sweet innocence of Keelyn's niece, Sophia. In this story the antagonists deal with their inner demons in ways that arouses sympathy, anger and disgust as they play a cat and mouse game with the authorities, and the murders increase.

"Poison" is a riveting page turner from beginning to end. I have read all three novels in the series and have loved them all. I can't wait to see what Jordyn Redwood has next in store for her fans.
