Bloodfever by Karen Marie Moning
These books are like the television series Lost, in that every time one question is answered, ten more questions are pop up! And I can’t stop reading them! (In a good way)
What is Barrons?
Who killed Alina?
Who has the book?
Can we trust Rowena and Vlane?
Who is Ryodan? …The questions go on and on.
Like the first book, Bloodfever had me riveted from beginning to end and I cannot wait to read the next book! The romance is still pretty slow building but I am enjoying that change of pace. It’s nice to see a book relationship grow and develop until it becomes something incredible. And let it be said, I am expecting the end result romance to be incredible. I hope it lives up to my expectations.
This book really had me improving my vocabulary: saurian, gamine, avaricious. It’s nice to read a book that is urban fantasy, enjoyable and smart. This is the first book in a long time where I’ve had to google words for the definitions. Bravo on that Ms. Moning!
Here are some awesome quotes from the book:
“It’s like walking up to the biggest, most savage lion in the jungle, lying down, placing your head in its mouth and, rather than taking your life, it licks you and purrs.”
“Black and white are nothing more than lofty ideals in our minds, the standards by which we try to judge things, and map out our place in the world in relevance to them. Good and evil, in their purest form, are as intangible and forever beyond our ability to hold in our hand as any illusion. We can only aim at them, aspire to them, and hope not to get so lost in the shadows that we can no longer aim for the light.”
