5.0 out of 5 stars Delivers another whopping great tale, 30 Oct. 2013
This review is from: Blood of an Ancient (A Beri O'Dell Book Book 2) (Kindle Edition)
Blood of an Ancient: Beri O'Dell Series, Book 2 (A Beri O'Dell Book)

Blood of an Ancient, the 2nd book in the Beri O'Dell series, delivers another whopping great tale to continue on from Dweller on the Threshold.

3 months have passed since Nickolas threw himself into the depths of hell, freeing all the souls attached to him and thereby destroying the power which the Dweller had gained from them. Come Hell or high water, Beri was determined to bring him back, especially after a mixed up spell (yes, another one!) from Blythe allowed her to see just how badly he was suffering.

And so begins a quest to find the blood of an ancient (they don't give it up willingly) and Blythe's former mentor (she appeared to have joined a band of singing witches) who might be able to help her set her magic to rights after it went awry at the end of the first book. Both are needed if Beri is to successfully pull Nickolas from the hell he's been sucked into.

Ms Elliot has once again delivered a well written, refreshing, beautiful tale that grabs you in its magical claws and takes you on a wild, zigzag journey filled with action, building relationships, capricious friends and the inexplicably deep bond Beri has for Nickolas. Her characters are endearing, funny, compassionate, eccentric and snarky but they come together so smoothly, you can't help falling a little in love with them all. I really believe the strength of this book lies in its emotiveness as the characters just grab your heart and don't let go.

Mr Elliot closed the book perfectly, but leaves no doubt that another story is in the making as there are quite a few threads left open that would form the perfect storyline. I, for one, will be eagerly awaiting the next installment - even if it's just to learn a little more about egotistical Fenris!

Highly recommended and well worth the 5 stars!
