The characters are strong and well developed. After losing her mother and most of her family in a fire when she young, Ashley is a responsible teen who provides strength and stability for her young sister, Lily. Although their father is alive, he's absent for long periods of time, and Ashley has been the parent, even though they stay with close friends of the family. She is also courageous, protective, and driven, facing every punch life has thrown at her alone when her world is tipped over once again in single night. I could feel her warring emotions and see the fiery battle within her.
Cole, a lonely young man adopted by a couple who are not as they seem, may act like trouble in the beginning, but he is actually one of the most caring and genuine guys to have around. He jumps to rescue people he doesn't know and goes to lengths to keep them safe.
The entire world hidden in the shadows of our own is unique and well thought out. I was kept guessing, never knowing what to expect, and when I thought I had everything figured out, I was thrown for another loop. The plot only got thicker, more suspenseful, and the background was fluidly delivered, with the information paced and continuously clicking into place. All the characters and story lines intertwine, and while the entire picture isn't revealed yet, I don't mind and can't wait.Read more ›
It took me awhile to actually get into this book. The biggest thing that bothered me is the writer kept switching between third person limited (where the narration is closely connected to only one character’s perspective) and third person omniscient (where the narrator knows the thoughts and feelings of every character). Mostly, I think this book was supposed to be third person limited, but every so often there would be lines or paragraphs that didn’t fit. For example, with third person limited, when Ashley’s dad would be referred to, he should have always been ‘her dad,’ ‘her father,’ etc. but constantly he is referred to as ‘Patrick.’ Now if she actually called her dad ‘Patrick,’ then it would be okay for him to be referred to as that.
Getting past all that, the writing was pretty good. The descriptions were excellent and the flow was really nice. Sometimes it might have gotten a bit wordy, but it wasn’t a huge deal. Once I got into the book, the writing seemed to pick up even more.
Character-wise, I thought Ashley was a bit of a flat character. I liked her, but she didn’t really seem to have much of a personality. Sure, her situation could account for some of that because she is in ‘run for your life’ mode most of this book, so she’s mostly running on impulse.Read more ›
Megan Joel Peterson's fantastical world is often frightening and very destabilizing She ensures that the main characters discover the truth about the environment as the reader does, connecting us in surprise and horror.
The Children and the Blood is a story about magic, unlike any other I have read and in its originality Megan Joel Peterson has created characters who I wanted to journey with, but who all have very different traits.
The Children and the Blood is a surprising and well-written YA novel but the sequel will be a must read, partly because of how the plot is developed and also because I am now addicted to the story!
This was given to me as a review copy, but this has had no influence on my opinion.
