After Nightland’s vicious attack on the domes, the safety and perfection of the world within the glass has been contaminated. Desperate to rebuild, outsiders are allowed into the domes to help, breaking the cardinal rule: outsiders and Domers must always be separated.

Boy of Blood starts where book one, Girl of Glass, left off. This is not a standalone story. You do need to read the first book in the series to truly appreciate this installment.

The book starts with Nola waking up after the attack on the domes, a perfect world inside glass walls created for chosen humans. The other half of the population is relegated to living on the outside of the dome to suffer and die.

In this dystopian sequel, we follow Nola as she tries to move on from the attacks on the do

Nola is a great character in this series! I enjoyed this book as much as the first one but they should be read in order.  The boy she loved broke her heart and she begins think about Jeremy's love and how that makes her feel. I was left at the edge of my seat and I can't wait for more. *This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.*

Thank you to the publisher for the review copy of this book.

Book 2, Boy of Blood, by Megan O’Russell, continues right where book 1, Girl of Glass left off. In this dystopian world, humans are divided between the outsiders and the humans living within the glass domes, constructed to save humanity. Nola continues her struggles with who to fight along side with, and who to fight against, as the wars continues to rage, and turn even more aggressive.

Truths are discovered, feelings are shattered, and

The second book is as good as the first one! I love the characters, especially Nola. She is such a loving and caring girl!

But I just can’t believe this cliffhanger! I’m shocked. I definitely need to read the thirth book as soon as it’s available. I can’t wait!

If you like Dystopian worlds, please read this one. It’s such an amazing story about a girl who has to live in a dome to save te human race. A good girl who cares so much, that she sometimes makes bad decisions. This Dystopian world is al

Nola is trying hard to move on and seeing where things go with Jeremy. But when the dome is attacked time and time again she’s now taking the blame. She wants to tell someone what she did but Jeremy stops her. The people on the outside know her name, know what she did and now they come for her. The werewolves the vamps they want what she gave. Now that she can’t ANYONE she runs away to find Emmanuel the journey isn’t easy and just when you’re loosing breath because you’re rubbing away with them ...more
Read my review to book #1, Girl of Glass, HERE:

*this review contains minor spoilers*

Often, when I start a book series, book #1 tends to be my favorite. I'm usually not much of a series reader for this reason - unless you're Ransom Riggs, I often find that sequels pale in comparison to the first book. However, I actually think that Boy of Blood, #2 in the Girl of Glass series by Megan O'Russell, is BETTER than the first.
Saying that, though, I'm not going t

We received a digital copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review:

Megan O'Russell hits another home run with Boy of Blood, book 2 in the Girl of Glass series.

This book picks up right where Girl of Glass left off - the night Nightland attacked the domes. Nola struggles with intense feelings; she's betrayed the domes, and those she tried to help, betrayed her. The boy she loved has turned on her, and she begins to accept Jeremy's love as she starts to heal. The blinders

Nola is safe in the domes, but she is more aware than ever. The domes were attacked. The current love of her life had almost been lost. She has been bitten and scarred. It is part of her history now, and she won’t forget it. She’s caught the eyes of the guards, and when dark secrets begin to reveal themselves to her, her trust shatters all over again. The guards are using the drugs from outside the domes now, going against everything Domers were taught. Who can she trust, if anyone?

Writing cliff hangers feels good. Reading them, not so much. But anyways. I’m really looking forward to the third one that I know she’s going to write because if she doesn’t I’m going to have to take matters into my own hands and fan fiction again. So. Help a girl out! You’re going to need this book when it’s out next week! Another quick read like the first, and very engaging.

Omg what a great book 2!!! Please make the 3rd one come soon. I do t want to give anything away but I was just sure my reader had stopped working. Nope it was the end of the book :(. I love the story the characters are amazing and book 3 needs to hurry.

Once again, fantastic read. Nola is back in the dome but not for long. There are hundreds of lights on the bridge to the city, and Nola is asked by Jeremy's father to go and talk to the people on the other side. They have actually asked for her. While talking to them, the bridge blows up. The Domers had used Nola to keep the others occupied and of course a lot were killed. And some Domers also. This is all too much for Nola. Death. Lots of death. Love with a guard. Betrayal. The city. More death ...more

The pace in this story has been uninterrupted from
Book 1 into Book 2.
You **do ** need to read Book 1 first ( Girl of Glass )
because if you don't, you won't understand what's
going on.
I read it in one sitting, being unable and unwilling
to put it down.
Enjoy !!

Excellent read!

If you have read the book Girl of Glass, then this is a must read.

Nola is true to herself and is the best the domers have to offer. You only hope that you would be as good as she is.

When is the next book coming out?

I thought the first book in this series was great, but this second one is even better - probably because the scene has already been set, so the action can ramp up. And so it does! This book was very hard to put down and I read straight through to the end. On to the next book in this series...

Great book!

I liked this one better than the first! The beginning was a bit slow moving but once I got into it, I couldn’t put it down. What a great read! Action, drama, suspense! I highly recommend this series!

I wish it was longer!!! I need to know! Does she survive?!?!? The cliff hanger is killing me!! Good job!

I really enjoyed this continuation. I liked the romance and I felt the hurt the characters go through, and wished I could help. I’m hoping the next one is just as good, if not better
I wanna enjoy this book and to a point i do but Nola does my head in. 🙄

This could of been epic.
