This fast-paced second installment in the Blend series delves deeper into Julie's horrific past and helps us better understand her as a character. Additionally, she and Austin both discover surprising new talents and learn that people whom they have trusted have fabricated lies and deceptions that are finally revealed.

The author artfully develops the world-building begun in Human Blend, and many questions that lingered from the first book are answered, even as new developments kept me reading an

Earth Blend was a brilliant follow up to Human Blend

Julie and Austin are still coming to terms with Austin’s emerging powers and Julies near kidnapping. They are trying to settle in to a life not only together but come into their own as individuals. Austin is devastated to learn that his mother isn’t his biological mother and Julie is forced to watch his grief without being able to help.

Julie was once again a strong character, sometimes I would say she is too mature for her age, but that wouldn’

Human Blend left off with some stunning revelations and Earth Blend throws the reader right back into everything. The first few chapters are a little difficult to get through, because it’s a lot of backstory for several different characters and some of it carries over for each of them. Lori Pescatore deepens the mythos she created in the first book and even adds a bit of a sci-fi edge to everything.

Learning exactly what the blends are and how the Earthlings factor into everything allows the read

Earth Blend is the second novel in the Blend Trilogy written by self-published author Lori Pescatore. The novel begins with background history of the Earthlings, the Earth’s children created by Mother Nature to protect the Earth from harm and destruction. Soon later, how the Earthlings welcomed the Blends to Earth, allowing them to escape from their enemies seeking to take over the universe. To survive extinction, they must blend with the human race to build back their numbers, and raise an army ...more

I absolutely loved Human Blend, (the first book in The Blend Series) so I was very excited when Lori emailed me about reviewing Earth Blend! I have to say, it was definitely not what I expected. While Human Blend focused mainly on (shocking, I know) the Human Blends, Earth Blend gave a lot more detail about the Earthlings. I loved getting to read all about the history of the Earthlings and the Blends and how they came to coexist on Earth, while still reading about Julie and Austin and their craz ...more

Earth Blend is the second installment of The Blend Series, the first being Human Blend. One of my favorite things about this series is how different it is from other books. Lori Pescatore has done a great job creating books that are fresh to the YA scene. While I liked this book a lot, it didn't grab me in the beginning like Human Blend did. Lori Pescatore spends the first 40 pages or so of Earth Blend filling us in on the hows and whys of many of the characters from Human Blend. While I appreci ...more

Earth Blend picks up where Human Blend leaves off. Julie is getting comfortable living a “normal” life; she has a boyfriend, is working as a volunteer in a hospital, and has built friendships. Austin, Julie’s boyfriend, is coping with learning that he too is a Human Blend and that the woman he always thought of as his mother is really his step-mother.

Strange things start to happen to Austin, he is having weird reactions to anger and even seems to black out occasionally. Julie and Austin, along
Pescatore's Blend series is one of my absolute favorite reads. While I'm not super fond of the cover for this installment, I'm happy to get another dose of the amazing characters and their stories. In Human Blend, we get to know the main character, Laney, and learn of her sticky situation as she attempts a fresh start in Marion, Virginia. Human Blend introduced readers to the Earth Blends but didn't really go into detail with them, so it was nice to get the low-down in the second installment. Th ...more

Earth Blend is the second in the series and continues to follow the adventures of Julie/Laney. Earth Blend is an excellent sequel to Human Blend. Pescatore dives into detail about the Earthlings and I enjoyed getting to read all about the history of the Earthlings and the Blends and how they came to coexist on Earth. From there on, we get to dive into more of Julie’s life and the men surrounding her especially Austin who at the moment is not acting the way he should. Again, anyone who loves youn ...more

Seemed to bit a lot shorter than Human Blend but I did like learning the mystery behind the Earthlings and Blends.

Certain characters introduced in this story were essential to the plot but their roles were very short-lived. It would have been nice to get to know the characters more in depth in this story, but hopefully there'll be a next book in the series to do that.

'Earth Blend' is the second book in the Blend trilogy by Lori Pescatore. This review isn't really going to contain much info about the book because, if you haven't read the first one, I don't want to ruin anything in the second one. It is definitely a must read book though! Pescatore stays true to her style through Earth Blend with all of our favorite characters making a return!

'Earth Blend' picks up right where 'Human Blend' left off. I think that was a plus for these books because I always fin
Naj (Unputdownable Books)
The characters and plot of the Blend Trilogy or at least the first two books of the trilogy were unique and carefully written. Though the environment and how things were mended and written were too much like every other sci-fi paranormal book I've read out there.

Human Blend started off with our protagonist moving into an unknown place on her own after years in captivity. I'm surprised how different the plot was. It was morbid and dark to say the least. It's definitely something for the older You

Earth Blend was a great sequel to Human Blend, the plot twists and action kept the pages turning! I really liked seeing more of the Earthlings in this book and learning about them and who they are. Lori Pescatore does a great job conveying the characters emotions, and all of them had depth and personality, even if they did not play a big role.

The first few chapters are a series of different stories that follow various characters and an important backstory of theirs. While I did understand some t

Earth Blend is the second book in the Blend Trilogy. I really enjoyed how the author explained the connection between the Blends and the Earthlings. There was enough back-story in this book to keep the reader engaged and answer questions left in the pervious book. Once that was all taken care of the plotline picked right up from where the first book left off.

I won the third book in the series from a goodreads giveaway. The author was very generous to send me the other two books in the series. I

Earth Blend is the perfect second installment to Lori Pescatore's Blend series! It is thrilling an hooks readers in early on. The novel continues to develop characters that readers have already become familiar with in Human Blend and does an excellent job at doing so. The novel ends off leaving readers wanting to get their hands on the final installment in the series, Terminal Blend as soon as possible!

A copy of the book was provided via Goodreads Firstreads in return for an honest review.

Truth be told the writing wasn't bad but the outcome of the book I wasn't happy with. I'm sorry I'm being unfair. I will not be reading the next.
It was okay. Under developed and a little slutty. I won't be reading the next one.

I am a married Mom of two grown men, I am also a retired preschool teacher. I have learned so much since the writing of Human Blend and hope to continue to grow and improve as a writer.

I am excited about finishing up The Blend Series trilogy and am very excited about the new book and it's characters.

I hope you enjoy the books I have written and continue to follow my journey.
