Explosions, Love, Magic and Black Dogs!
on 17 May 2014
The first book in Becca Andre's was great and from the way it finished, the real and loveable characters and knew that book 2 had the potential to be amazing.
On the grounds of this, i bought my kindle copy of The Blood Alchemist as soon as i heard it had been released, regardless of the fact that was at a time in the morning when only birds are awake.
I started reading... And couldn't stop
This is a book that grabs you from the start and doesn't let go.
The characters take on new levels of realty, the plot is more wicked and winding and nothing is quite what it seems the twisting emotions of a lost love and a main character trying to undo her past mistakes - mistakes she hardly remembers - makes this story so much more than just a murder mystery with magic and explosions.
While I struggled to get a grip on the geography of the locations in the book, I suspect this has more to do with my lack of knowledge rather than any failing on the author's part. This did not detract from my enjoyment at all. It simply left me making up imagery images that i am sure were not what the author intended.
All in all though, this has got to be one of my favorite books and cannot wait for next installment in this thrilling series.
