I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
Blood and Fire is the second book in The Talbot Trilogy, and it's action-packed with shapeshifters, vampires, and witches. This book picks up where book one, Wind and Shadow ended, so be sure to read it first. Now the hard part. How to review a book two without spoilers from both books?
Many new characters are introduced in this second book. What's interesting is that the chapters alternate between the characters, telling different stories until everyone comes together near the end (which by the way is a bit of a cliffhanger). At times I really liked the switch-up since it kept things moving forward and exciting. But sometimes I felt a bit annoyed--I'd just get into something and it's off to another place.
This book is heavy on descriptions, sometimes to the tiniest, minute detail. There were times I felt a bit mired and found myself skimming to move on to dialogue or action. Though this book is quite different from book one, I enjoyed it just as much. I still really like main character Rayvin a lot. There's lots of action and new characters to keep the story fresh. Definitely a really good follow-up to Wind and Shadow.
