Blood of the Wicked: Everly Abbott, Book 2 Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
I once worked for vampires. I’d never thought I’d be one.
My throat is always on fire. My mouth is always dry. The only thing that helps?
As much as vampires need it, it is also our curse. Blood can drive us mad if we’re not careful. That madness breeds a wickedness as the need for blood reigns supreme. We revel in it, desiring the power and vitality it gives us. When we drain someone, we get high; it’s a rush that some vampires love to chase once they cross that line. Vampires will do anything to get it and there’s nothing that will stop them from killing hundreds. Our humanity slips away the more we indulge the need and there is no way to regain it.
Alexius makes it his duty to kill any vampire that loses control and I’ve promised to help him. After months, I get to help on my first case, just like I wanted to the night I woke up as an immortal.
I thought I knew what sort of vampires we’d be stopping. I didn’t think about how bad things could get.
My name is Everly Abbott...
And the wicked really do know no bounds.

If there is one thing that kind of got me was that she sometimes were a little too confident. Calling up the pack leader sharing her theory without running it by Alexius first was a bit off but I guess with what followed it was necessary for the story. I hope that in future cases she will be able to use her technical skills more since she this time around mostly it felt like she looked through phones and today one doesn't need to be all that tech savvy to do. I love techy stuff and have my own custom computer with several baggies of screws so this might not be something most people care about.
I like that she is getting back to be quick with her words considering what she had to deal with in the first one.
To sum up, great story and a great continuation. Can't wait for the next one and what they will be doing next. And I am so beyond grateful that the books so far in the Tribunal series, as far as I can remember, do not end with cliffhangers. You get the resolution of the main conflict of the book but the overarching problem you still know is there and will continue in the next one.
I like the main characters, Everly is a strong female character- not really a mouse - and Alexius is the strong, brooding protector. I wasn't sure I liked Isaiah in the first book but his sense of humor is very likable in this one. Do you think he knows about Alexius and Everly?
The mystery around Jacob death and who might be after Alexius is interesting! I can't wait for book 3!
This book picks up shortly after the first leaves off, so if you haven’t read the first- go do that! There was a lot of explaining in the first part of the book, which I found helpful, having only briefly glimpsed the Vampires in other books set in this world. It is interesting seeing characters I am familiar with from a new perspective. I like that Everly is smart and capable and a bit of a computer nerd. Other heroines in this universe nail the kick-butt-take-names vibe and I thoroughly enjoy it, but it is cool to have a different kind of female protagonist. I like that she is introverted, wants to remain in the background, and uses her brains and computer skills. I find her most relatable, personally, as I too hate exercise and frequently feel out of place.
While the build up was a little slower in this book, I really like the feel of it- sort of crime procedural rather than kick-butt action. I think she and Alexius make a good team, his experience and her technological skills are a good match. Without getting into spoiler territory, I think the plot was solid and made sense. There were no holes in logic that I saw, and it was a solid case for Everly to start with.
Overall, this was a great second book to the series and a solid story. I cannot wait to see more!

It's a slow burn, and I can't wait to see how the relationship between Alexius and Everly develops.
The world building and all the connections continue in this series and I am so here for it!
After the cliff hanger of the last book I was really excited to dive into this one and I was not disappointed!
Everly's journey so far has been absolutely awesome and I am really excited to see where she ends up.
And oh my, it was so worth waiting for. She’s always been an incredible story weaver, and this next instalment is no exception. It may have taken me a while to warm to Everly, but she’s quickly becoming one of my favourite FMC to date. I can’t wait to see where her journey takes her.
