From best-selling author Shannon A. Thompson comes an exciting new duology in the Bad Bloods universe.
Fourteen-year-old Violet has been called many things: a bad blood, a survivor, an immortal…now she has a new name—citizen. But adjusting to a lawful life is not easy, especially when she must live under the rule of the same officers who justified the killings of her flock only eight months earlier.
Segregation of bad bloods and humans is still in effect, and rebellious Violet steps into a school where she is not allowed. When the police get involved, things deteriorate quickly, sparking a new revolution at the wall separating the Highlands from the outskirts.
That's when Caleb steps in. He might appear to be an average sixteen-year-old bad blood, but he has secrets, and Violet is determined to figure them out. Caleb knows who's attacking the wall and why, but his true identity remains a mystery—and how he relates to Violet could shake the threatened city to its very core.
Together or not, a storm will form, a rally will start, and shocking truths will be revealed. 

My Thoughts

I received an e-copy of this book from the author in exchanged for an honest review. Thank you so much, Shannon! I absolutely love this new addition to the Bad Blood series!

Like always, I absolutely admire Thompson’s writing ability. The development of her characters never ceases to amaze me. In just a few pages, we find out so much about the characters. Thompson does a fantastic job at establishing each of the characters goals. They feel genuine. But most importantly, they are relatable. And with the addition of new characters comes new abilities. Nuo's ability is, by far, my favorite. However, The mixture of different POV’s really added to the story. New perspectives. New abilities. New situations. 

From the start, Thompson grabs your attention. You’re sitting on the edge of your seat until the very last page. Fortunately, you don’t have to wait too long for answers. 

Seeing familiar characters helped tie the book into perspective. With a new political movement on the horizons, the plot took off in all different and exciting directions. The world building was phenomenal! Also, can we just take a minute and look at that cover!

I hope to dive into July Lightning soon!
