"I would highly suggest reading this series in order s the "would highly suggest reading this series in order Butcher as the book kind of ends on bit of cliffie Some re present in this book but mostly Showalter raises nd puts Ten our heroine in some very disastrous situations One of my favorite parts of the first book was Ten She s very independent nd fun but in this book I think there was bit of change in her character I m not sure that she s s fiery s she was in the first book but that might just be because now she knows she s in nd over her head nd must One Last Kiss act bit rationallyIn terms of romance there s n interesting one here I wondered what "Was Going To Come From "going to come from because really the first book only introduced them nd didn t explore it s much s I wanted I still don t know where Showalter is going with it but I m intrigued by Ten nd Killian s dynamic I really like him There s No One Needs To Know a complexity to his character that I find intriguing We never really know where his thoughtsre or what he s going to do next Selections From Great Works of Mawlana Jalal Al-Din Rumi and I think that keeps the readers on their toes when he sroundAgain Showalter continues to build her world from the ground up nd I really like the way she s done it She doesn t reveal everything ll Kisses Don't Lie at oncend that s good sign If she did I think it would bore readers nd it probably wouldn t be s good s it is now LIFEBLOOD is Murder at Morningside another wonderful installment to the series Therere so many issues with this book I m not even sure where to start I guess the first thing I can say is I really don t understand ll the four nd five star ratings did we even read the same bookMy biggest complaint Dead Perfect about this book is the pacing It s horrendous Absolutely horrendous You get no sense of time from the story youre just slammed with event fter event t Bones To Pick a break neck pace The way it reads it s like it happens in just hours but she explainst one point that Ten has been in her ever life for months As Clockworks and Corsets a reader there is no sense of time elapsing tollow growth nd development of the characters or relationships or even the world they live in it s just event event eventspoilerI think the worst example of this is when Ten s grandmother dies Ten is bsolutely devastated nd thrown into mournin. Tenley ist gestorben und hat sich in letzter Sekunde für ihr Zweitleben entschieden Jetzt ist sie eine Troika und lernt eine völlig neue Welt kennen Doch sosehr sie sich freut liebe Familienmitglieder wiederzusehen viel Zeit zum Eingewöhnen bleibt ihr nicht Denn ls hohes Mitglied der königlichen Garde soll Ten ndere Menschen für Troika gewinnen und schon bei ihrem ersten Auftrag muss sie dabei gegen ihre geheime Liebe us dem Reic. G but s the reader I was sitting there thinking give me break you met her New Girl on the Job all of five daysgo there is no way you would be that broken over her death Because of the pace of the book there was no time to develop Restaurant Weeks Are Murder anyttachment to the characters yet we re supposed to believe that Ten certainly didspoiler overThe next killer for this book is the complete lack of consistency In the first book Mana is described s food for spirits that only needs to be eaten once day yet Ten gets to her ever life Her Wounded Warrior and there is constant eating going on Therere Mana restaurants Mana chips the partments have kitchens nd she mentions than once bout her cupboards being bare None of it lining up with the earlier descriptions of ManaEvents fter the missions re nother example One House Over (The Neighbors) after her first mission she is told she has to go to debriefing because there is Always debriefing yet she never had to go to nother debriefing in the book After her second mission she is told to go see Between You and Me (The Harrisons, a healernd told that she is Always supposed to see Cinderella and the Ghost (The Cursed Princes, a healerfter every mission but she didn t see healer fter her first mission Troika is supposed to be realm of structure nd stability but there is no consistency thereThen of course there is ll the YA tropes to deal with Ten has just barely entered her second life so let s send her on dangerous mission nd let her lead because she is the protagonist Oh nd let s send her on nother mission nd nother Let s forget bout ll the people who ctually have experience the teenager gets center stageThere is still ton of Zero happening which morphed into n eually nnoying Lockdown And frankly I don t like Killian s love interest I hate when romances take the bad boy who has done horrible things you know like convincing multitude of women that he loved them when he was really only trying to get them to sign with his realm Killer Physique (Savannah Reid Mystery, and once they sign hebadons them nd moves on to the next target nd suddenly he just changes everything because the new girl he met is the One I hate that story line because men like that don t change but it gets romanticized in books nd movies nd so some women end up living their lives thinking they can change guy who is complete jerk or that if she were just special enough if she were the One he would change for her It s bs Amish Homecoming and it s been played out so much it would genuinely be refreshing for good guy to get the girlI read this one because I was curious Enticing the Earl about what Ten would dos conduit if it weren t for that curiosity I probably wouldn t have picked it up t Jewish German Revolution all Now that I ve read it I won t be readingnother of this series nd I don t recommend you pick up this book unless you re utterly in love with YA tropes zero character nd world develoent nd getting slammed endlessly with events that re trying desperately to drive the plot longOne of Five stars Don t waste your time reading this Can t believe it took me so long to read this because it was fabulous Full review to comeEdited to dd reviewHaving falling in love with "THE FIRST BOOK IN THE EVERLIFE SERIES I KNEW " first book in the Everlife series I knew second had lot to live up to Bound To Love Her (Zebra Debut) and with middle book syndrome being so dominant in this genre I won t lie I was bit nervous going into this I really shouldn t have been nervous
