Beneath Blood & Bone

~Thicker than Blood Series~

It is the end of the world…

They call him Eagle. Like the grand and beautiful animal that symbolizes freedom. And during these dark times, when humanity is full of nothing but suffering, a man with such a powerful name should be a beacon of hope.

He is anything but.

Her name is Autumn. Though she hasn’t said this name, or much of anything else, in the four years since the fall of civilization. A shell of her former self, and living wild in a cave at the bottom of a ravine, Autumn is accustomed to being alone. She prefers it actually, especially when her only other options for company are either trying to kill her, or worse, lock her up inside their walls.

Captured by Eagle’s people Autumn is suddenly thrust back into the land of the living, though she would hardly call it living. The community of Purgatory is full of sinners, the most evil of which seem to have set their sights on her.

In an act born of anger and defiance, Eagle becomes Autumn’s unexpected savior forcing these two solitary people into one another’s broken worlds. Neither knows quite what to make of the other, but one thing is certain.
To survive Purgatory, they will need to learn how to rely on each other; a feat that could quite possibly teach them how to live again.

MY REVIEW!

Another hit from Claire C Riley & Madeline Sheehan! This is their third book together and they’re still melding amazingly well–to the point that it has become impossibly difficult to pinpoint Riley’s styling from Sheehan’s within the storyline and characters (Trust me, I tried to find where the different personalities shone through. Riley is a long-time favorite of mine and I’ve read everything she’s ever written.

This is their third book together and they’re still melding amazingly well–to the point that it has become impossibly difficult to pinpoint Riley’s styling from Sheehan’s within the storyline and characters (Trust me, I tried to find where the different personalities shone through. Riley is a long-time favorite of mine and I’ve read everything she’s ever written. Once in a while, I did read a line in BB&B that slapped me with “Yeah, definitely Riley”).

BB&B follows a secondary character from Thicker than Blood (which was a poignant story of the true love between friends at the end of everything). Eagle was a bit of a (insert really derogatory name here) in TtB and BB&B does wonders to redeem him (if not make readers totally forget the terrible things he did in TtB). Autumn is broken yet strong–she’s inspiring in a way. And her affect on Eagle is a core part of the overall story.

Like others have said–Riley and Sheehan succeeded where many fail; they’ve created a second book in a series that is nearly better than the first. Another thing I love about the TtB series is that it’s not a series in the traditional sense. They’re separate stories intertwined to create something with true staying power.
