Bloodring

In a novel filled with exhilarating action and lush imagery Faith Hunter portrays a near future world caught in the throes of an ambiguous apocalypse where a woman with everything to hide finds her destiny revealedNo one thought the apocalypse would be like this The world didn't end And the appearance of seraphs heralded three plagues and a devastating war between the forces of good and evil More than a hundred years later. 35 stars but rounding up for the apocalyptic ice age setting which sounds pretty nice right about now what with the last election we re ever gonna have coming up and the world ending shortly thereafter Just kiddingAnyhowThis book is a unusual blend of almost everything I like to see in urban fantasy with the exception of angels and biblical tie ins Am not a fan of angels and even less a fan of angels biblical things Though here they aren t too heavy handedThe writing is decent albeit slow in the beginning but you get used to it as you read on The characters are okay as are the plot and mythology There s a good amount of government conspiracy theories to give the story a futuristic sci fi feel and everything else is decent and interesting enough that I ll most likely finish the trilogy It ll take some time getting there but as I ve learned this book and most likely this whole trilogy is meant to be taken slowly with freuent breaks in betweenThe one thing that made this book stand out among the hundreds or hundreds of thousands of urban fantasies of its kind many of which I passed on simply because they looked too much like something I d seen or read before is the setting It s an endless bitterly cold winter A refreshing break from the usual dark and dank magical urban settingsThis is a world buried under a ton of snow and hasn t seen any seasonal changes since the apocalyptic ice age hit No one alive remembers the seasons changing They speak of warm weather as though it s a myth because all they know is winter I find that most intriguing because the way things are going we might one day speak of cold weather the way these people speak of the myth that was summerOverall a good story with a slow burn though not one I d recommend unless you re looking for something fairly different but still somewhat the same on the urban fantasy shelfFuller review at

Nearly drive her insane she escapes and lives as a fugitive disguised as a human channeling her gifts for war into stone magery and the pacific tasks of jewelry making But when Thaddeus Bartholomew a dangerously attractive policeman shows up on her doorstep and accuses her of kidnapping her ex husband she retrieves her weapons and risks revealing her identity to find him And for Thorn the punishment for revelation is deat. As a general rule I won t rate a book that I DNF and read less than 50% So no rating Bloodring well the 40% I read before I walked away is a bit of a disaster It s monotonous the characters are remote the storywell you would think by 40% I would have a vague idea of what s going on but honestly I had no idea Faith Hunter is a talented writer Her Skinwalker series is a personal favorite This book is going into the bowels of hell and hopefully it is never mentioned again

    A 4'10 female riding a Fresian? A stallion no less? Granted they aren't hot blooded but I'm still struggling with the practicality of that combination And likewise someone else riding a Clydesdale snorts Don't get me wrong it's done But it is far from practical far from comfortable especially traveling long distances It's like straddling an oil drumThis is one of those instances where it really does pay to stay within th

    Let me just say how shocked I am that I didn't like this book I love Faith Hunter's Jane Yellowrock series But I really really didn't like Bloodring I listened through the whole audiobook convinced that eventually I'd care for the heroine care for the plot but I didn't It's just too much too post apocalypticnew ice age too high fantasy too foreign too alien We have new mages and half breeds and Sarephs and demon spawn and none of them are h

    There's a lot of potential in this book but there isn't enough actual to keep me going I mean the whole angels and UF feel with magical crystals and mystical overwhelming sex energies that tie into the magic system IS fairly interesting at least on paperIt's also a fairly average post apocalypse tale set in the deep coldI don't know I never

    This book is huge Not so much because of the length of the book but the sheer amount packed in here especially this really original world Honestly if someone has sold this book to me as a post rapture word a world after the book of Revelations a world where the angels came down and massacred huge chunks of humanity I would be leery But what about that world where the angels never confirmed any one religion? What about when the Most High n
