Reviews for Blood Kin
Rich fantasy romance!
MJ Scott has created a rich fantasy world in the Half-Light series and once again I was sucked in quickly to the story - much anticipated, as this time it focused on Guy DuCaine, a secondary character and brother to Simon, who appeared in SHADOW KIN, the first book in this series.
While I thoroughly enjoyed SHADOW KIN, I found BLOOD KIN a much more satisfying and smoother read. Perhaps this is because I was already familiar with the world and not grappling with getting my head around the structure and races who peopled the world.
The storyline pretty much picks up from where SHADOW KIN left off. The plot arcs include dealing with the fallout from Lucius's downfall/assassination & the cure Simon came upon for the Blood-locked in SHADOW KIN but we also get a glimpse into the Fae world and the intricate politics and laws that make up the culture as well as more of the darker side, the vampires and Beast worlds.
Much of the external plot focuses on the politics and fallout as the races come to grips with Lucius's death and the power struggles left by his absence, but the story also focuses much on the relationship developing between Guy and Holly and this is the part I really enjoyed.
Both characters drew me equally, their strengths and flaws, and their actions, everything about them interested me and I liked seeing their individual and common journeys. Both were strong characters in their own right, both holding to a code of honor and willing to sacrifice their own personal goals and happiness to see others they care for protected.
Overall, BLOOD KIN was a compelling read, and I'm looking forward to the next installment in the series (IRON KIN, due for release in April 2013). by Kylie Short
