Review by Valerie Noble
(based on the advanced reader copy)
Into the Blood grabbed me from the beginning and did not let go. I read it all the way through in one sitting because I just couldn’t put it down. I needed to know what would happen next.
There’s love, there’s action, there’s violence, there’s suspense. There’s friendship old and new, reconnecting with family, and holding on to love.
I loved joining Xander again after his story with Paige in Into the Nothing. This time he’s set on finding his sister Gabriela, hoping to reconnect. She has her own problems, however, and must find a way to pay back money or it’ll be the end for her.
Gabriela is tough and flawed, damaged and strong. She’s had horrible things happen to her and yet she keeps fighting to live. She leans a lot on her former flame Shane and he’s so willing to do anything for her. I really loved that he was her constant, giving her whatever she needed, and stepping up to help her.
Even though it has been awhile since I’ve read the first in the series, I had no trouble getting into the action and characters of Into the Blood. I couldn’t put down my e-reader until I read the very last word. The characters were compelling and the action was gripping.
The novel is written from first person point of view, not my usual fare but BT Urruela’s style keeps me reading in spite of my personal preferences. I love the blend of love and action and suspense.
I can’t wait to read the next story from BT!
