Others must choose for themselves whether keeping their element is worth the fight for survival.Continuing the fight,
Rush of Blood questions what we’re truly capable of when we’re pushed to our limits.
I really enjoyed this book. It is easy to pick up, having knowledge of the first one or not. It is a real page turner! The characters develop more and you really get engaged in the world. I highly recommend Rush of Blood and its predecessor, Burn the Ashes. The themes can be a bit dark, but Heather does a really good job of writing the story and softening these darker themes. Peony is realistic and someone young girls can look up to. She makes choices that are both best for herself and those around her, making her an independent force to be reckoned with.
