After loving the authors first book Blood Heavy by S.L.J. Shortt, I recieved a e-book copy of the second book in the series Blood Heavy: Ascension. I Loved the book just as much as the first and how the clan of characters I loved from the first book were there (cass, sophie, claire etc) but there were new characters that had just as good back stories and personalities.. Thr relationships and bonds between all of them are very well done, you have Shophinia/Jerry (mother/daughter) Rach/Jerry (brother/sister) and of corse Goose/Jerry Bestfriends turned family. I did tear up a few times during the book as the author made really good choices about how to write the "touching" interactions between the pairs.
I am a big fan of this series and loved everything about it, it really made me think of all the different spiecies in the book especially demons and angels. I am very happy that we found out who saved Jerry in the first book. That was one thing that I had not been expecting. You also get to meet who was responsible for taking out the majority of Black Forest in the previous book.
The villian in this book, Aria, was a great character! She was smart, has stlye, and does whatever it takes to get what she wants and in my opinion was very original,especially her motive. I loved the fact that it was a female as you get a lot of male villians.
It was a very fast pace book and I didn't want to put it down. And when it was over I was already thinking about what may come next for Jerry and his family. I have also recommended thid to any of my friends who I know read. Very well done!
