I have a weird tendency to read several books, start several different series at the same time. I am currently reading The Taker, book one in The Taker Trilogy, Amber House, book one in the Amber House series, and I just finished the first book in two other series. The first book was called Gifts of the Blood, book one in Angel’s Edge. I will start book two, Darkness in the Blood soon. I would have to give Gifts of the Blood about 3.5 stars. Good but not great. I am actually hoping things get better in the second book.
I also just finished up Shadow and Blood, book one in The Grisha series by Leigh Bardugo. Let me just say that it is the latest addition to my favorite shelf… soooo good, no great… loved it. I rate Shadow and Blood with 5 very strong stars.
