This book was AMAZING!!! Even better than the first – which doesn’t happen often with sequels but the author delivered beyond anything I could have imagined. I was floored by it!!

I started this book in the afternoon and read it all the way through until midnight. No interruptions, just me enjoying an amazing reading experience.

And WOW – the feeling when I was done – can’t be described than anything other than an epic BOOK HANGOVER!!! I wanted to read on. lI needed more. I wasn’t done with it yet.

Brilliant Nora Roberts!!!!

I devoured every word – every single word!!

The thing I always love reading about is the journey, the preparation, the getting ready for something epic to come. A transformation of a sort. Besides Fallon’s crucial learning period, with Malik, who by the way was a fantastic supporting character. Fallon’s personal growth was palpable. She really stepped up and took her spot as The One with determination and conviction. It was fantastic how she understood and recognized what had to be done, and prepared accordingly.

I couldn’t get enough of this book. And still, a day later, I can’t stop thinking about this brilliantly plotted story. The crescendo is coming – I know it, I can feel it. The BIG altercation between light and darkness. The fight that might change everything. I just hope that Fallon Swift is ready when it happens. And honestly to God I want to read The Rise of Magicks RIGHT NOW!! I can’t wait. Making me wait until November is torture!!

So yes, this book was beyond GOOD!!! The author delivered a masterful and suspenseful sequel, that is captivating and enchanting with its vibrant world building and wonderful characters. A story that needs to be read by everyone that loves romantic fantasy.

I refuse to be the only one with this book hangover – I need people to commiserate with. So, please read it!!!

Of Blood and Bone – Nora Roberts


They look like an everyday family living an ordinary life. But beyond the edges of this peaceful farm, unimaginable forces of light and dark have been unleashed.

Fallon Swift, approaching her thirteenth birthday, barely knows the world that existed before—the city where her parents lived, now in ruins and reclaimed by nature since the Doom sickened and killed billions. Traveling anywhere is a danger, as vicious gangs of Raiders and fanatics called Purity Warriors search for their next victim. Those like Fallon, in possession of gifts, are hunted—and the time is coming when her true nature, her identity as The One, can no longer be hidden.

In a mysterious shelter in the forest, her training is about to begin under the guidance of Mallick, whose skills have been honed over centuries. She will learn the old ways of healing; study and spar; encounter faeries and elves and shifters; and find powers within herself she never imagined. And when the time is right, she will take up the sword, and fight. For until she grows into the woman she was born to be, the world outside will never be whole again.

    1. Thank you so much 😀 If I may make a suggestions, wait until book three is released, you’ll want to read them all in one sitting. lol

  1. Yes, I’m commiserating with you! As long as the audio version was, I hated when it ended. Ditto to EVERYTHING you said. Nora did a great job of including a YA element to the story without making it feel separate and apart. Didn’t you just love Malik? There were surprises that I didn’t see coming, too.

    So glad you loved this.

    1. I’m glad I’m not alone Jonetta, it really sucked me in. Like you said it was a long book, but I devoured it all. It was just brilliantly plotted. She wrote parts that she never included in a novel before, this trilogy is by its whole a very different kind of story for the author. I was blown away by how much I loved it.

      Malik was an amazing character. He is one of those characters we’ll never know everything about, he keeps too many secrets. lol
