Dear Ms. Havard,

Why must you hurt me so?

When I first started reading this series, I had no idea what to expect. I certainly didn’t expect to fall in love. But through your words and the voices you gave your characters – especially to Sadie – I did fall in love. I love this world. I love the experiences I’ve shared with Sadie, the Winters, and the other Survivors.

But now I find that my heart is broken.

A choice was made. A step backwards, in the wrong direction. After so much progress over the cou

3.5 STARS As the book moves toward building powers and armies to protect the Survivors, we get so many answers that create more questions. Sadie builds up and moves past the being that she once was--alone, outcasted, and looking for a way to be mortal so she could die--to a warrior in charge. But all this growth and building towards a revolution is a façade in the end.
I am very disappointed in Sadie. I don't think she can ever be redeemed if she Survives.

This review originally published in Looking For a Good Book. Rated 1.5 of 5

I really struggled with this book.

Body & Blood is the third book in The Survivor's series by Amanda Havard, and perhaps if I'd read the first book or two this would have been an easier read because I would have understood the characters a little better. On the other hand, if I had read the first book (or two) I probably wouldn't have bothered with this third book.

I don't typically read the description of a book(such a
The threats, the menace, the heartache and the turmoil are ramped up exponentially in Amanda Havard’s third installment of her Survivor’s series, Body & Blood! Alexander Raven is the ever-looming dark figure, the Survivors’ greatest nightmare and he has his sights set on the big red bull’s eye marking Sadie. Sadie is the key that will unlock the mysteries of the Survivors, their greatest asset and their Achilles heel. Her personal life is still in turmoil, but her head must remain in the gam ...more

Oh. My. Gosh! This book was AMAZING!!

First off, I loved that it was told from different POV's. Although I enjoyed knowing everything from Sadie's POV before, it was a nice change to get a behind-the-scenes look at a few of the other characters.

I especially loved when it was Mark's turn. From the first time he appeared in this story I felt drawn to this dark, bad boy. He may have had a don't care attitude at times but he had more layers than most other characters. So getting to see things from hi

When I started reading this book I never realised that it was the third in series, but I thought well that’s fine I will give it a go and try and catch up. It was good for going over some of the things that happened in the previous two books.
I thought the book was written in a very in-depth way but I also think that this made it very confusing for me. And it talked about things….a lot! They talked a lot about magic and doing stuff and making plans but they never really did anything very much. T

It took me a couple years to finally work up the courage to read this book. I started as a Wattpad lover of the first book, worked my way through the second, and then halted for a couple years hoping that the fourth book would come out in order to ensure I wouldn't be put up with heartbreak for very long. Two years later, I gave up and just decided to read it. To be totally honest the last chapter really overshadowed the rest of the book for me. If I were to have writt

Dear Ms. Harvard,
I will continue reading all the books you release. I am thrilled with The Survivors Series. You are wonderfully talented.

Jamie Bennett

Seriously, I can't get enough of this series. Each new instalment brings forth whirling new adventure peppered with unlikely twists and turns. Amanda Harvard has the magic of storytelling running through her blood and tricking from her fingertips as she writes. I have been impressed with her talent from the get-go and as of yet have not

Body & Blood opens shortly after Point of Origin closes with Sadie’s point of view. The first two books were told in her POV, so this is nothing unexpected. Sadie is not the only character we read from in this installment of The Survivor series. Two more characters have parts of the story told in their point of view. These sections are not retellings of things that have already happened as how the two additional characters saw them. Time and the story, move along with the two characters. It ...more

*sorta spoilers (tried hard not to though)*

Was pretty disappointed in this book. I loved her first book and her second one was pretty good but this one just really frustrated me. Sadie does what seems like a lot of character building in this story but it all amounts to nothing in the end when she jumps way back to square one. Throughout the whole book I found myself getting more and more frustrated with her as she juggled everyone's feelings around, complained about secrets being kept from her,

Before anything else, this series has the worst proofreader; as if they're proofing a fan-fic instead of a novel being published.
I really like the idea of this story,and I like all the characters. I like that the main character is difficult to Luke and that you really root for her to finally grow up and figure it all out. But somehow, as much as I like the characters I have been disappointed with each book. And this one is the worst yet. I mean, I'm all in favor of a good cliffhanger, but the wa

There is so much thought and detail that must have gone into writing this series. It's pretty amazing. This is definitely one of the most unique and interesting series out there.

I love this series.

I love this series. The characters are amazing. Is there going to be another book? I hope the story doesn't end here. I've been waiting for years.

The book was ok, but that is about it. I loved the first two books but this one seemed rushed and rambled on and on about nothing.
