Blood & Honey | Shelby Mahurin

Not as good as the first one, but I think I know why. It was only supposed to be a duology so when the author turned it into a trilogy this became a filler so not a lot of actual action happens. You can tell they are leading up to something epic that will happen in book 3. This was a lot of planning, trying to gain ally‘s, running & hiding. Ended on quite a cliffhanger though so I‘m going to have to read book 3 asap! #seriesread2022 @TheSpineView

Oooh sooo good. Picking up a few days after book 1, this one had it all. Evangeline is just trying to achieve her happily ever after as it is constantly just out of her reach and everyone keeps trying to take it from her. We got some questions answered and I can‘t wait to see what the next book brings. That ending though. #seriesread2022 @TheSpineView

I wanted to love this series but I now see what most reviews mention. It def fell short for me. I wasn‘t invested in the characters. The setting and the historical elements were the best part. Don‘t think I‘ll read the rest of this series. #seriesread2022 @TheSpineView

Wow. Quite an ending to the series! I love how all the story lines come together in the end and I especially love the ending Shusterman gives to Citra and Rowan. He brings up many interesting questions about the nature of humanity and our ability to destroy not only each other but the world we have built. And also about how much we rely on technology. I will def think differently anytime I ask ‘Siri‘ something 😂 #seriesread2022 @TheSpineView

Wowza. Quite a cliffhanger ending. I can‘t imagine when this book was first published having to wait a year or so for book 3! Thank goodness I have it in hand and can start it right away. I particularly loved how Shusterman gave “the cloud” life and made it such an important character. #seriesread2022 @TheSpineView

Loved this dystopian world! It seems perfect- no death, no disease, no war, no hunger, no misery but the question becomes what to do about the ever growing population. Aside from the interesting setting, the characters are all so intriguing and you can‘t help but root for good to prevail. Lots of questions about loyalty and right vs wrong. There were lots of plot twists I did not see coming and I can‘t wait to dive into book 2! #seriesread2022

I read a lot of Fantasy, but I absolutely loved this present day novel. The story was heartwarming and sad. I fell in love with the Anishinaabe culture and everything I learned through this story. I felt like the setting itself became a character as well- it was so important to the story. Definitely recommend!
