Editorial Reviews

Review

“In Lou’s world she not only finds her voice, but makes men take notice and change their views of women. With so many twists and turns, this book is a must for fans of the first.” -- School Library Journal

“Seductive, steamy, and satisfying.  Mahurin has delivered a fearless and captivating sequel that has me hooked. This is officially one of my favorite series ever.” -- Adalyn Grace, New York Times bestselling author of All the Stars and Teeth

“Decadent and dangerous, Blood & Honey was exactly the book I needed at precisely the right time. The rich cast of characters captivated me, and I can’t wait to see what’s in store next for this merry band of miscreants.” -- Reneé Ahdieh, New York Times bestselling author of The Wrath & the Dawn series

"Blood & Honey grabbed me by the throat. Shining with irreverent humor and brutal heartache, every magical word is rendered beautifully throughout the many twists and harrowing turns. Mahurin delivers a triumphant return to Belterra." -- Isabel Ibañez, author of Woven In Moonlight

“A breathless, breathtaking continuation of the magical world Mahurin has created pits the strength of love against the need to protect those one loves…at any cost.  Would you lose your soul to save someone else’s? Blood & Honey doesn’t just address this question; it slams the reader into the story - and that existential question - in a brilliant, unending roller-coaster ride.”   -- Jodi Picoult, New York Times bestselling author of Small Great Things and A Spark of Light

Praise for Serpent & Dove:
“Drips with intrigue and shadow.” -- Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

“A brilliant debut, full of everything I love: a sparkling and fully-realized heroine, an intricate and deadly system of magic, and a searing romance that kept me reading long into the night. Serpent & Dove  is an absolute gem of a book.” -- Sarah J Maas, #1 New York Times  bestselling author of A Court of Thorns and Roses series

“Will cast a spell on romance fans.” -- Kirkus Reviews

“Mahurin has taken the witch and witch hunter trope and made it new again. The world-building will draw in readers and Lou’s strong but wistful nature will keep them turning pages.” -- School Library Journal
--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

2.0 out of 5 stars Wait to read this when the third book comes out
By Charisma_reads on September 17, 2020
This book just wasn’t what my expectations where for it. SPOILER ALERT IF YOU HAVEN'T READ IT.

The whole love story between Reid and Lou was completely off.
Reid fighting his magic and “accepting” Lou as a witch but resenting her when using magic throughout 99% of the book was tedious and annoying.
The fighting scenes were quite dull.
I wanted to DNF this book multiple times.
I did however like the new characters into the book.
I thought the way she did Ansels death was not done tastefully and completely disrespectful towards his character.
I enjoyed how she ended the book because I thought it was hopeful way to end off to start a third book.
Overall, this book was dull and frustratingly annoying.

"Ask me no questions, mon amour, and I shall tell you no lies..."

Did I like this book? Yes, very much. Did I enjoy this book? Yes. Did I love this book? I hate to say it, but no.

"The wisest course of action isn't always the right one..."
*
In this sequel we see Lou, Reid and Co navigating the consequences from the end of Serpent & Dove whilst trying to anticipate an attack from La Dame Des Sorcieres.
*
What I really liked about this book was how we got to see more of the world and the magical creatures that inhabit it. There were lot of new and interesting characters introduced along the way. And that cliffhanger... Wow! I did predict it with some of the earlier foreshadowing but, my gods, it still hit hard!
I also experienced a first whilst reading this book as I took part in an Interactive Art Read-A-Long through A Touch of Magic Designs on IG. This included five mystery prints labelled with a corresponding chapter. It depicted the scene beautifully and helped to bring the characters to life. It also had me rushing to read on to reach the next print. This read-a-long is a big part of why this review is 4 stars instead of 3.

"She wore secrets like armour, and she shed them for no one... "
*
Now, I loved Serpent & Dove and I was abolsutely hooked on it. I feel Blood & Honey just fell short of that. It honestly felt like Lou and Reid were strangers - that original spark was missing. The story between those two felt repetitive in this book and not fresh like in S&D. It felt like this was a 'filler' book before getting to the Finale. I'm a sucker for romance and theirs just seemed to dwindle. I'm hoping to see a revival in book 3.

5.0 out of 5 stars This instalment is much darker and the ending broke my heart.
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on November 24, 2021
After surviving death as second time at the hands of Morgane, Lou, Reid and their friends are suffering from the fallout. The death of the Archbishop by Reid to save Lou has changed him and his views on magic have become even more conflicting as he refuses to accept his magical heritage. The clash with the Dame Blanches has also changed Lou. She is angry, volatile and more reckless with her magic. She is obsessed with revenge and it is clouding her judgment. Reid and Coco worry that Lou is not in control of her feelings or magic and that she is acting more like her power-crazed mother every day.

As fugitives from the Dames Blanches, Church and Crown, they must find a way to defeat Morgane by locating other witches or supernatural beings to assist them. When the friends must part ways because Reid is not welcome by Coco's family the Dames Rough and he must seek the werewolves separately, troubles within the group deepen. Lack of communication causes a rift between Reid and Lou and as they go their separate ways that rift only widens. Lou cannot understand why Reid will not see beyond her magic to the woman he says he loves and stop trying to change her and Reid cannot reconcile the Lou that he fell in love with the drastically altered woman before him who is violent and dangerously irrational. But the one thing he takes issue with is the fact she continues to lie to him about her past.

As their enemies close in on every side will they succeed in vanquishing Morgane once and for all or will they even survive the coming battle? One thing is certain – the fight ahead of them will leave earth-shattering consequences for all involved and ones that no magic can reverse.

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟. This instalment is much darker and the ending broke my heart. Even though these beloved characters have changed considerably and in unexpected ways, I still feel drawn to them. The escalating tension to the showdown with Morgane was thrilling but I found the interpersonal conflicts and connections to be even more compelling. I recommend tissues.
