If Madison and Alexandre thought their troubles were over, they were sadly mistaken. In "Thicker than Blood" they, together with their families, are once again plunged into a world of adventure, danger and life threatening situations. On the other hand we have Elia's story which is set in sixth century Byzantium. Finally it looks as though we are going to get some answers to questions which arose in "Hidden", the first book of the Marchwood Vampire series. Answers that fill us in on how exactly the vampires came to Byzantium and what caused the strange sleeping disease that had disabled so many vampires for fourteen centuries. Not having had much time to experience life as vampires when they were newly created in the nineteenth century, Alexandre and the other Marchwood vampires only knew that sunshine - and now ultra violet light - can kill them. In this book they also discover other dangers to their existence, as well as the possibility of being put back to sleep if they are not careful.

Once I started reading, I simply could not put this book down. With action and adventure and fear for these beloved characters' lives and well-being from the very first few pages, combined with suspense that just never lets up until the final page, it is not surprising that the author - who is a genius with cliff-hanger chapter endings - switches back and forth between sixth century Byzantium and modern day Cappadocia and England, with ease; thus ensuring that the reader keeps turning the pages.

The characters truly come to life - Alexandre, still the nineteenth century French aristocrat, Freddy, the British aristocrat of the same time period and on the modern end of the scale, Madison and her brother Ben.

This sequel is worth the 5 stars I gave it. It is a sequel, but it is an interesting and worthy book on its own. It has plot twists and turns, complex characters.and a rich depth of history that the author has created- but feels real. I definitely do recommend reading the first book to gain more knowledge of the characters and story before reading this, however.

The book is well written and edited, using U.K. English. It pretty much just starts as if you've just read the first book, and goes on from there. The characters continue to develop, and we continue to see history now and from the past with the underground cappodocian people as we did in the first novel. I felt again, that this was a great way for us to see the characters from a full perspective instead of wondering how it all connected.

I highly recommend this book for YA/Teen to adult readers. It is complex and interesting, and can be enjoyed by everyone (young teen and older). I think the plot twists are surprising and unexpected, and I will be waiting to see where the next book takes us as readers!

I was given this book in return for an honest review. Maddy and the gang are back! They think they are safe after defeating their foe's in the last book, but they are wrong. After a seemingly innocent trip to the ice rink, Maddy is kidnapped. While the vampires spring into action to find her, Ben is left at home to look for clues. Throughout the course of the book you get glimpses of the past that tell you how this story all began. These in no way detract from the flow of this book like they do in many books. While Maddy is being held in the worst place possible, the others are finding out more about why she was taken. There will be treachery on both sides of this battle and a betrayal that I never saw coming. New allies, new enemies, and old enemies collide in a non stop thrill ride to the end. I love this series and totally recommend it!

In this installation of the Marchwood Vampire series we learn about what caused the vampires to lay dormant for centuries and what happened to all the human inhabitants of the underground city.The sign of a good book is when you slow down reading it to make it last longer and that's exactly what I did.I was completely drawn into this story as Maddy,Alexandre,Ben, Leonora,Isobel,Jacques and Freddy settle into life as a family. But everything explodes around them turning their world upside down once again.Shalini is an amazing writer with the ability to hold her readers attention from start to finish,and she left me wanting MORE!

W.O.W! I love this author's work. I just finished this novel and found it completely immersive and unputdownable. The plot is so intricate and complex that I am in awe of this lady's talent as an author.

Thicker than Blood is such an apt title, and the story flows seamlessly from the previous novel (Hidden). I love Maddy as a character and in this her personality shines through. Taken captive and held in an awful cell, Maddy could have reacted a multitude of ways, but instead she came across as an awesome and courageous lady who keeps her composure and wits no matter how despairing the situation.

The story follows 2 plot-lines and I found both equally engaging. I loved reading about the past (with Aelia) and the present. The plot twists are thick and furious, and I loved them all!!

I don't want to tell you what this novel is about, but I can tell you this is like vampire on crime, but with the richness of their heritage, their arrogance, and their allure. There is treachery and duplicity, and it was the best read! I hated every second I was away from this novel. All I wanted to do was read it! I stayed up late too many times devouring this book. The places have been brilliantly researched, making you feel as though you are IN the location which is so very foreign, the tension is palpable, and the emotions cut in and hold tight, they are sublime, hooking into you without you being aware, until you are on this ride and you can't read fast enough.

To the author, I applaud you! What an incredible imagination, so well written, and the plot and pace are flawless and swift. Brilliant!
