Betrayal. Magic. The throne is far from secure with a new threat lurking in the shadows.
Removing the Council should’ve been April’s biggest problem. Her only friend becoming her archenemy was not something she saw coming.
Reeling from the gut-wrenching betrayal, she is left with too many bodies to count. Fearing the monster she might become, there is only one thing that can stop her now.
Sebastian has a decision to make. Help April with her revenge, or stop her from destroying the human race alongside the mages.
Is their bond strong enough to bring April back from her bloodlust?
Or, is one human the catalyst that destroys them all?
The explosive finale of New Blood Rising will have you gripping your kindle, cheering a villain like never before.
4 out of 5 (very good)
RICONOSCIMENTO: RECOGNITION is the third and final book so far in the New Blood Rising series, and brings this trilogy to a dramatic conclusion. April, Marcus, and Sebastian are mourning the loss of Andrei, whilst still hunting down Sara and the other mages who hurt them so badly.
It was great jumping back into this series as April certainly knows how to handle herself, even when she's feeling slightly 'off'. The relationship between her and Marcus is as wonderful as ever, and Sebastian nearly melted my kindle.
The one thing I will say, and it's what kept this from being a 5-star read, is the ending felt a bit rushed to me. All the build up, and then, wham, bam, thank you ma'am, it's all over. I know Maya Daniels writes things with a fast pace, but this was just a bit too fast.
On the whole though, this was an amazing ending to the series, and I really hope Maya Daniels does indeed return to this series, as hinted as being possible in the afterword. It is a series though, so you really must read it from book one for it to make any sense, and for you to get the full enjoyment from it.
