Blood & Honey by Shelby Mahurin

This is the second book in the Serpent & Dove trilogy.

After narrowly escaping death at the hands of the Dames Blanches, Lou, Reid, Coco and Ansel are on the run from coven, kingdom and church – fugitives with nowhere to hide.

To elude the scores of witches and throngs of chasseurs at their heels, Lou and Reid need allies. Strong ones. But protection comes at a price, and the group is forced to embark on separate quests to build their forces. As Lou and Reid try to close the widening rift between them, the dastardly Morgane baits them in a lethal game of cat and mouse that threatens to destroy something worth more than any coven.

I was definitely excited to return to the Mahurin is creating with Lou and Reid. It started right where Serpent & Dove ended which is always ideal.

Throughout the book you see more of the relationship between Lou and Reid both the hard times and the fun times. While the relationship is still somewhat new for both of them I liked the slow realization that both Lou and Reid had to trust each other especially now more then ever.

The growth in Lou’s friendships with the group she is travelling with was great to see especially how natural they were and the somewhat trust between them all.

I read the book with an art read-a-long from A Touch of Magic Designs and I loved seeing the art as I read through the book.

The ending left it on such a cliffhanger one that makes me want to know to what happens next right now.

Overall I really enjoyed Blood & Honey and I look forward to reading the last book when it is released.
