(I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a review).
(This review may contain spoilers).
Having read the first book in this trilogy, I was happy to read the second when the author offered me a copy in exchange for a review. Unfortunately, it did take me a while to get to this, but I’m glad I was able to read it and it was something I found really entertaining.
Even though I do wish that the book didn’t constantly change between multiple first person POVs (I always find that hard to read), I did find this book a really quick and easy read otherwise. It was good to see more of Nicolette and the other characters I’d met from the first book… as well as the new characters who appeared in this book.
Although I would have preferred the book to be written in third person, it was good to see the workings with the other side as well as with Nicolette. I felt the author did a good job of putting a more ‘human’ face to the apparent bad guys.
I also thought the author did a really good job of showing the kind of situation Nicolette was in due to the properties of her blood. Sadly, I could see humans wanting to get what they saw as a ‘resource’ and completely ignore the issue of basic human rights.
I did like the scenes with Nicolette and Jason at the beginning of the book. It was nice to see them spending time together and having been able to be married. I also liked seeing that Nicolette had been training in self-defense… even if she still can’t aim a gun properly.
I also liked seeing Eva in this book and Nicolette’s brother and sister. I did feel that things moved a bit too fast with Elena towards the end of the book. She seemed to change her tune quite fast.
There were some quite intense scenes in this book and it kept me reading really easily throughout. I liked Noelle as a character and I would have liked to see a bit more of her interactions with the other characters around her.
I also liked the use of faith and Christianity in this book. I definitely hope to read the final book in this trilogy at some point in the future.
