Review: Lifeblood (Everlife #2)

Lifeblood (Everlife, #2)Lifeblood by Gena Showalter

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

3.5/5 stars.

MY EXPERIENCE WITH THIS BOOK:
At first, I didn’t like the introduction to book 2 of this series. I really miss Archer. I didn’t like Killian that much from the first book. Which sucks since he gets a stronger spotlight in this book. It took me a week to listen– this book suffers Middle Book Syndrome. But if you persevere, you find this is an incredibly original and intriguing story for dystopian YA books.

CHARACTERS/DYNAMICS:
Killian is boring as hell. He’s smart for not throwing all of his commitments away for the sake of his girlfriend, Ten, but also: just like the last book; their indecisiveness turns to a drag. Since they barely cared about aspects of their lives; why should we?

The writing makes me you second guess every character, including Ten (the protag). I think the author did a great job in getting us to constantly question the characters; this book is perfect for you if you enjoy double agents and spies, but also fallen angels and dystopians. I know– weird combo, right? It works, trust me. The world Showalter has created is a masterpiece!

PLOT:
Keeps you on your toes. I started the book to know how Ten survives after choosing which realm to side with; but I stayed for the outcome of so many side-characters like Levi and Diaz.

THE ENDING:
Was another cliff-hanger, but not as pain-staking as the first book. I’m excited to read the ending of this trilogy next year! 🙂
