The Bad: IT GAVE ME FEELINGS – I DO NOT LIKE FEELING FEELINGS.
The Ugly Truth: THIS. IS. HOW. YOU. END. A. SERIES. (If I could somehow capitalise a full stop I would use it in this review.) Pulse-pounding drama and action to the heart-breaking end. 11/10, A++, all of the stars.
Review: Bloodchild is the third and final (no, you’re crying!) book in Anna Stephens’ debut Godblind trilogy, published by Harper Voyager. Whilst I would like to extend my thanks f ...more
I’ll change it if I decide it merits less stars – but I doubt that will be the case since Anna Stephens is a fabulous author.
Right, to Hell with preamble – this book gets your heart pumping hard right up until it tears the aforementioned organ out of your chest and makes you blub like new born that stubbed its toe on the way out.
In Godblind we saw the stakes, we saw what both sides were fighting for, and we saw just what both sides were prepared ...more
It tops off an incredible series featuring some of the most lovable"heroic" characters, blood thirsty Gods and complex relationships, all this in the black shadows of a sprawling war that takes no prisoners and is grim-dark to the core.
I end the series with a heavy heart! I am too heart broken to write a more coherent review but promise to follow this up with something worthwhile. Dancer's Grace, people. It is time.
I have enjoyed reading the Godblind trilogy immensely. It has been a wild ride full of misery, violence, gore and some genuinely uncomfortable moments that make you wince. It is also full of interesting characters who I both love and hate, depending on what side they are on.
At the end of the last book, things weren’t looking too good. Yes, the Blessed One’s plans had been disrupted but the city had been lost to Corvus. Fast forward to Bloodchi ...more
It's hard to believe that this is over, but here we are. And what the ride this was. I think I wasn't so devastated after finishing the book since I finished Malazan series and the epicness of battles and heroism of the last stands presented in Bloodchild is comparable to Erikson's works.
I loved Godblind trilogy from the start. We follow seven PoV's and still Anna Stephens put them in about 400 pages a book, wihout overly long chapters and unecessary fillers. What's more, ev ...more
This is Grimdark at it's Grimest and Darkest and it is a joy to behold

This is how you end a series and break my heart into tiny little pieces. This book was action packed from the start and will keep you on the edge of your seat from beginning to end. This is also the most anxiety provoking series I've ever read and I love it.
This book starts off not long after Darksoul ended. The Mireces ha ...more
They say blood begets blood. In the country of Rilpor, if you spill enough of it, blood begets gods.
