"In truth, there'd been no choice at all. There never had been.
I loved her.
And if I had to run, hide, and fight for that love, I would. For the rest of my life, I would."


Angsty, angry Reid is my favorite.

And that ENDING?!? Can someone give my babies a break, please. ( )

I wanted to like this one so much more than I did. I thoroughly enjoyed the first one but reading the follow up was not enjoyable. It was a painful slog and I stopped caring what happened to any of the characters. Lou is losing her mind, Reid is an insufferable "gentleman," and out of her merry little group of friends you know exactly who is going to die in the end (it is painfully obvious). I read the first one in a day and this one took me a week. I just couldn't get into it. I'll eventually read the third one because I really did love the first one a ton - but I'm in no rush. In fact, I think I need a break from this series for a while. ( )

This review is also featured on Behind the Pages: Blood & Honey

Reid and Lou have a difficult path ahead of them. Wanted throughout the kingdom and hunted by both witches and chasseurs, they must find a way to bring down Morgane. But the witch is following their every move, leaving behind riddles and taunting them every step of the way. And as their time to act grows closer, they will find it difficult to convince anyone to rise against Morgane.

The focus of Blood & Honey makes a dramatic shift from the relationship between Lou and Reid, to the events they were involved in. Gone was the witty banter back and forth, gone was the emotional tension. Instead, it was replaced by a wedge between them created by the use of magic. Anger and frustration took hold of both characters. And while this led to an almost complete halt on relationship development, it gave Reid’s character a push.

The small cracks in Reid’s belief present during Serpent & Dove have begun to make him question everything in Blood & Honey. And when Reid puts his foot down his stubbornness rivals Lou’s. The two are headstrong in their beliefs and neither wants to compromise, causing the couple to be at odds for most of the book. Reid is also processing his grief and guilt over his actions in the previous novel. This mixture of emotions made Reid hesitate and question his choices at every turn. The storyline progressed at a slow pace and was increasingly frustrating when Reid refused to do the one thing that would make things easier. But of course, on the other hand, he wouldn’t be Reid if he took the easy path.

Even though this book takes a step back from the young adult romance, it is still a good story. Shelby Mahurin introduces both the blood witches and the werewolves and all the tension that goes along when rivals meet. The barbed commentary and close calls resulting from their time on the page make all the difference. And don’t forget, Morgane’s presence hovers in the background, playing mind games and forcing the characters into precarious situations. I was also happy to see the use of magic ramp up and the teasing lore bits dropped into the plot.

I have no doubt Lou will take a larger part in Gods & Monsters. The path her character has been set on is not going to be easy, and after Reid’s rise and fall in Blood & Honey, I hope the two return to being a powerful team. ( )

I really enjoyed the first book, and this one started out alright. Made it to page 400 and gave up. Even that close to being done, I just couldn't anymore. It made me not want to read at all when I thought about this book waiting for me. So done with this book which mean I'm pretty much done with the series.

I really, really wanted to like this.

I didn't exactly love Serpent & Dove, but I definitely liked it more than this. The characters were just so.....happy? behaving in character? much more likable?

I don't know what exactly went wrong, but the depression and trauma and similar issues that the characters had to work through just don't belong in a second book. This kind of stuff is either explored way into a series, or it is ever-present. In either case, it is not supposed to be so heavy. You're not supposed to start feeling like I did, when this was the sequel to a very enjoyable and light-hearted book compared to this.

I actually needed to take a break some 20 percent into this to read a rom-com to improve my mood. And I really didn't like that.

I would not have minded the angst as much if a) I had signed up for something heavy on the angst, and b) the first book would have also had a bit of this angst. Or maybe, the angst could have been distributed between the two.

Aside from that, it was okay. I think. I'm not sure, because it was full of angst.

I was a bit disappointed since we didn't actually see a lot of the magic of the Blood Witches, which is what I really wanted from this. I was also disappointed that since there was so much angst, when things were finally seeming to look up, there was an unrequired sex-scene because they were finally on good enough terms to sleep together. It just felt forced, and seemed that since the first book had a lot of them, and the plot of this one didn't allow that many, some were just inserted anywhere the mood was slightly good.

Also, about the deaths HOW DARE YOU KILL ANSEL!?!??! HOW DARE YOU.

On the whole I was just really disappointed, and I'm hoping the next doesn't disappoint as much. I'd recommend it to anyone who read the first book, but to take this recommendation with a grain of salt as this might disappoint you too. ( )
