Taking up the mantle from the end of Royal Blood we are right back in the thick of it – with Mercy and X as they do their best to escape the danger they are in. X is feeling things that he has long since laid forgotten and the impact they have on him are causing more issues that he could have ever anticipated but his saving grace is the effect that Mercy has on him – she knows all too well that he is a serious threat to her safety but yet she feels or at least shows little fear – because she seems to be able to calm him when nothing else can.
Mercy is holding fast in the hope that not only will she be able to extract revenge on those that took away all that she loved in the world but that in time X will eventually fill that void and be able to love her the way she knows she loves him. It gave me a sense of pride watching Mercy develop and adapt, knowing that despite where she had come from she was finding her metal and would be able to exact her revenge.Read more ›
"She wanted revenge. I wanted her. I'd shaped her in my own image at her behest. A monster and his apprentice."
And oh boy is Mercy a fast learner! Picking straight up from where we were left dangling at the end of book one, Mercy and X are on the run. Unleashed from his ties to Royal Blood, his new master is unaware of the power she holds over him. Using his skills and talents X teaches Mercy to become detached, efficient and his equal on the killing fields. Their story takes them on a journey of self discovery and it is a time of metamorphosis for them individually and together. Seeking revenge for the death of her family Mercy never planned on falling in love. X having set himself free of Royal Blood's conditioning has to deal with the encroachment of feelings, memories and regaining his humanity in small fragments. Can this couple survive the cataclysmic changes that their decisions have wrought?
Of course there are other dangers to face...Sykes knows he is a hunted man and has put the wheels in motion. The chase leads them to Paris and Mercy learns more of the web she has been caught up in. Power, greed, human trafficking, pain and misery will it all be too much for her to handle? Whilst X trains and plans revenge he too is undergoing some changes, as the conditioning breaks he is left with memories and dreams, questions that he can't yet answer. They are both haunted by demons, existing in their own personal hells only surviving by their fierce connection. They are slaves to their pasts, controlled by their feelings for one another.
This ends with Mercy rite of passage...with her becoming X equal. But there is so much more to be told.Read more ›
Whoa….packed full to the gunnels of action and adrenalin, this read is nothing short of mind blowing. Amity weaves a sordid, twisted tale of murder and love in her second instalment of Royal Blood. If you weren’t convinced with the first then this one will change your mind for sure!
“Straight and True.”
And this little quote holds from beginning to end with Mercy and X. Bad Blood is something else, there’s such a mix of things in here from streets blowing up, to car chases to the emergence of some kind of love. Both Mercy and X are struggling with the type of people they are becoming, neither really understanding how to embrace these changes but both knowing that with each other they will figure it out. The word soul lies heavy on my tongue; I think they are trying to save each other’s. Whilst X thinks he doesn’t have one, he is afraid that Mercy will lose hers with the path she has chosen to walk. A path he takes her down though not always willingly. They fight to conceal how they feel, thrust into a confusing barrage of emotions that neither are all too comfortable with. Of course X has his moments, when you see it there, how he feels about Mercy and you understand that this complex man needs to find himself first. But what they have, although often times brutal and violent, it is something quite magnificent.
Of course the crux of the story is Mercy’s revenge and this does not come easy either. There are outside influences that come into play that hinder her progress but with X at her side her resolve stands firm. The reader finds X making many allowances for Mercy and them rationalising them so that he can understand the things she does. When he’s doing that it kind of feels like he’s unravelling bits of himself.Read more ›

This is the second book in the Royal Blood Series. It follows Mercy and X's fight for answers and revenge. It is darker than the first book but just as gripping. Read morePublished 17 months ago by Lisa Browett
