review 1: This book chewed me up, spit me out, gave me a lickin', and then flushed me down the fiery pits of Hell. It left me emotionally distressed and threatened on many occasions to tear my heart out from my chest. I have not felt this undone by a book in a very long time. Thank God for epilogues!!! Things are not going well for Grateful and Rick. Everyone seems to be destined to come between them. Enemies plant seeds of doubt in Grateful's head about the faithfulness of her Caretaker. And boy, do those seeds take root. Dreadful conflict is wrought upon the two intertwined, and this time, it might just tear them apart from each other for good. As if this wasn't bad enough, the enemy plans to remove Grateful from her home, and her seat of magic. The Book of Blood and Bones see... morems ripe for the taking for any supernatural evil out and about. If Grateful can't keep the book out of enemy hands, then the world will fall to Hell and her personal problems will be the least of her worries.
review 2: I'm giving this one 5 stars because I enjoyed it even more than the first book. I feel like there was good resolution at the end of the book, no cliffhangers or anything, and it left me yearning to start the third one immediately. I really like the idea of the woman coming into her power rather than the usual "falling for the dark/mysterious/sexy/bad guy and having to fit into his lifestyle". Not to say I don't love those books too, I totally do, but this is a refreshing take on the genre. In this book the author did a better job of fleshing out the characters, even the ones that appear briefly. I don't know if I said this in my last review but I've often found myself thinking "that's what I would do" or "that's what I would think in the same situation" while reading these books. Even though the topic of the books is ancient magic, it feels fresh and modern. The one thing I feel could have been done more in depth is the relationship that Grateful has with her father. He is treated as a peripheral character, and he mostly is, but any child is a product of their upbringing, and I'd like to see that relationship explored more fully. Hoping to see that in the next book. less

This story is captivating and I'm definitely eager to read the next book in the series.
Loved this second book as much as the 1st. Can't wait for the 3rd book to come out!
Well, this was OK. Still debating on whether to read the next in the series.
