What A Story!
5 out of 5 stars
I rarely finish a second book faster than a first, but I FLEW through Blood of the Covenant. I think I was familiar with the plot, the characters, and the overall look and feel of the universe that Steele and Foxe created in the first book – and they dove right into the action. The first book revolved around introductions and getting the partners to work better together. In book two, they seem to work much better together while learning new things about themselves and each other.
Blood of the Covenant starts with a bang, as I mentioned, but Steele and Foxe don’t let up much. The action is intense, and the characters are having a hard time keeping up with the destruction and why everything is happening. The book is a mystery wrapped up in an interesting fantasy world. The characters shine throughout, and the relationships are fully displayed.
I don’t like to dive too deep into the storylines since they can contain spoilers, but I particularly enjoyed the family aspect of this one. Mixed with the guild aspect(s) that were covered. I thought that Steele and Foxe did a good job keeping things interesting while moving the story along at breakneck speeds.
Overall, I thought that the writing got even better. The action scenes were intense but easy to follow. And the performances by both Steve Campbell and Deva Marie Gregory were excellent. The duet performance helps the dialogue in certain scenes shine. I have no problem with Steve’s female character voices, but it’s easier on the ears when Steve takes the male characters, and Deva takes the female ones. I thought they both added a lot to this already excellent story. I’ll point to this book when I say, “the audiobook makes it even better.”
Logan Blackwell does not work well with others, but if he hopes to defeat this new threat, he’s going to have to learn…or more cities will burn.
A warlock hell-bent on offering up the major cities of the world as a sacrifice to a god of destruction is more than he can stop alone.
