Rating: 5/5 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
Genre: Fantasy, Dystopian, Paranormal Romance
I’ll be the first to admit that though I loved the overall story of Year One and the plot-line, the writing felt blunt and lacked that special depth which makes NR’s stories unforgettable. Not so with Of Blood and Bone. OBAB was way better than Year One.
OBAB was kind of a limbo, a transition for Fallon from a teenager to who she’s supposed to turn into. A time for Fallon to grow and learn and become. A time of family and training and friendship. A time of doubts and questioning, to learn what you’re fighting for. No quest is ever complete without those painful lessons, isn’t it? To go through the emotional rollercoaster of being a teen destined to lead others and save the world. A heavy burden to bear.
I enjoyed not just Fallon’s road to becoming the One, but the growth of the other characters as well. It was good to see all the characters from the first book, their own evolution. I loved the twins and of course, there was that little flutter in the heart over the gorgeous Duncan. The romantic tension was excellent, all those teenage emotions zipping with sparks.
The writing was once again fantastic, filled with that depth and impact that makes NR’s stories such a pleasure to read. I read OBAB in one sitting, just couldn’t put it down it was so good. I can’t wait for the last book, The Rise of the Magicks.
