For Blood and Glory, was a roller coaster of a book. The story begins with a group of people finding a woman adrift in the middle of a large body of water. Shortly thereafter, our character Lyrica wakes up in the hospital and this book really begins to draw our attention. There are new born babies, secrets, deception, and displays of power normally reserved for the X-Men. Our story then flashes forward and we see a bit more into the mystery of Lyrica's life.

Our story then takes a quick turn and

Biased, yes--but it's a great book! If you've grown tired of vampires and werewolves, give it a try! It's filled with magic, mystery and intrigue. Think you'll like it! ...more

I was insanely excited to get my paws on this book, and I'm glad that I snagged it when I did. I have a lot of thoughts about it and am still working through a full look at this book, but I wanted to get my general review down before then.

This book's strongest point is its themes, hands down. It's ripe with them: from taking a fantasy look at the way women of color have historically been used to further science ventures or have had their children taken from them to serve the interests of white

Wonderful start and character development with a rushed ending

For Blood & Glory starts off with a bang as a group of teenagers find a pregnant woman in the water. This woman is taken to a hospital and treated, though, through the eyes of a nurse, things seem a little wonky with her test results as well as how the other professionals treat the poor woman. Fast-forward fifteen years and we're following the woman's daughter, Sefira, and her life as a highschooler living in a new town with her adopt

I was provided a free ARC for this book, but I didn't even really read the blurb before I dived in.

So of course I was taken by surprise in a flurry of several good ways.

The prologue set the stage very nicely. Some readers might be saddened because after the prologue it becomes a very different book, but in a good way. Despite this being a coming-of-age story that engages in some of the usual YA tropes, I never felt that this story was overindulgent in certain things like say, pushing so much o

So, I received this book as an ARC and I must say, I'm blown away. I enjoyed this book so much that I read it twice. Apparently, the author made some updates and I really like what she did. Character development is something she focuses on which is nice because the story is told from multiple points of view. And many of the characters are of color. Yeah! Nice to see some diversity. As far as pacing goes, I couldn't put the book down and that's saying a lot. I don't want to give away the ending. ...more

I was lucky enough to win a copy of this book before the official release, and this might be the best book I've ever read in my life. Fell in love with the characters and storylines. Wont spoil anything, but I can't wait to have more people to talk about the book with and I'm practically counting down days for the rest of the series! ...more

This book is excellent, I loved the story, it has everything, action, romance, it makes me feel a lot of emotions. At first it was a little confusing but at the end everything became clear.

Note: This review based on the ARC, some changes may exist in the final copy.

This was an enjoyable and solid entry to a fantasy series that has a lot of potential. It was a bit slow moving at times and I am impatient to find out more about the lore and history around the characters. It seems like it's going to have an interesting and unique take on the magic/fantasy element to it, but very little is revealed so far in this first book. I love Blythe and I am really intrigued by the character that

Without given away to much of the book. It will definitely having you asking or second guessing who's who in your everyday surrounds. I love the suspenseful, Sci-Fi and magical thriller to the end. A must read.... ...more
