Great read, roll on number 3
on 3 December 2011
Since I finished The Blood That Bonds I couldn't wait for this book to find out where Two and Tori's advetures went. We start off with Tori and how she is re-adjusting to life after all she has been through and back living with her parents. Something happens that noone could have seen coming and changes the path of Tori's and those around hers life.
Two is miserable with what her life has become, Tori is miles away with her parents and she can't face her friends or her existance as a human. Two finds herself in a bottle constantly and walks the streets trying to find a vampire, any vampire to try and reclaim some kind of vampire life she had before it was all taken from her.
A friend had read this book and said she didn't think it was anywhere near as good as the first so I was apprehensive. However I was up most of last night tearing through it following the girls stories. I think it is because it is so very different from the first installment. The first one was so fast and delved us into a world we knew nothing about, everything was on the edge of your seat. This time we get a look at the bigger picture, hear more about the vampires and strains that exist and the introduction of The Children Of The Sun.
I really ejoyed it, it was great to get more depth on the vampire history and how the story unravels now it has these new twists. There is still violence, fighting, sex(some of it graphic but you should be used to it by now), blood and love and twists and turns throughout the book, it is just different paced from the 1st one but it still works really well.
What didn't I like? Well I can't say too much as I don't do spoiler reviews however some of Twos character in this book annoyed me as she came across as quite selfish at times with no regard for her friends. I would have liked to have read a lot more about Tori aswell, however I know with book number 3 I will get that and I'm just disappointed I will have to wait but as I have said before it is a good author they say who keeps their audience wanting more.
It is a thicker book than the first one and I got through it in just over a day as I couldn't put it down, the things I liked far out weighed the small things I didn't so it is a 4/5 for me and apologies my review has became so long!
This book is available for the kindle for £1.99 (the first book is free for the kindle ((the blood that bonds)) from Amazon.
