Hello, darling!

A long time is gone since my last book review. I think the reason why could be that after Illyon, it was like I can’t read a lot. I don’t know why. It could be ’cause I did so much work in that blog, but they didn’t value it. Do you know? They delete my piece because of a dispute with the authors, and I this is not fair! So that’s all.

Now I think I feel better, here everything work well and ’cause it takes more than an hour to reach my workplace by bus I have time to read again! To be honest, this book was the only one I had on my phone, the paperback one I started before leaving was on my desk in Italy, so I asked my parent to sent it to me. However, I’m planning to book something in the library that is not so far from my workplace. And maybe if I find something I like I could buy it.

So, about this book. It’s necessary to specify that I read it in the Italian language. And even if it was the only one I had with me I have no regrets to read it.

This book is the second chapter of a series by Claudia Mauro, Le Cronache del Sangue (Blood’s Chronicles). I read the first one too and I made an Italian review some time ago when I was with Illyon, but I think I’ll put one here too as soon as possible. So, I think I like Claudia’s book, or maybe I love this series because is the same kind of book I use to read. Her writing is clean, short but clear sentences. Claudia’s use of first-person emphasize the introspective side of the main character and look like there is a use of stream of conscious.


It is not difficult following the plot of this story. It is like you read and “Oh god, it’s already finished!” To be honest, I cried a lot at the end of some chapter, but I won’t spoil you.

So, about Vampires and other creatures you can find in this novel, I can write the same thing I wrote for the first one. I talked about this with the author. There was a study behind the concept of each one. It could be like biology of supernatural and fantastic because Claudia studied their anatomy in order to show them such real as possible. I appreciated this aspect, really! And it is interesting to read about some ancient legend and myth from old Ireland.
