    “With kindness, you brighten the world. With cruelty, you darken yourself.” 3,5 starsLifeblood was definitely better than Firstlife, but not by much. I can’t believe I had forgotten how odd Ten is, she can become quite annoying actually. I’m still not sure how I feel about this series, I mean it is good, but at the same time I don’t think I would ever read it again.

    Can't believe it took me so long to read this because it was fabulous. Full review to come!Edited to add review:Having falling in love with the first book in the Everlife series, I knew the second had a lot to live up to and with middle book syndrome being so dominant in this genre, I won't lie, I was a bit nervous going into this. I really shouldn't have been nervous. This book hooked me once again, from the very first chapter. It didn't take me...

    I've tried really hard to find flaws in Gena's stories, something I didn't like or didn't understand, I honestly did because I want to be a good critique and not just read and automatically love her books. I've tried and failed. Gena gets me, she's the perfect author for me, everything she writes I love. She is such a tremendous writer and I am so honored to have read an early copy of this book.Lifeblood was an emotional roller coaster, I laughed...

    LIFEBLOOD is the second book in the Everlife series by Gena Showalter. I would highly suggest reading this series in order as the first book kind of ends on a bit of a cliffie. Some answers are present in this book but mostly, Showalter raises more questions and puts Ten, our heroine, in some very disastrous situations. One of my favorite parts of the first book was Ten. She’s very independent and fun, but in this book, I think there was a bit ...

    That ending though! Those last few words....Loved Lifeblood, it followed on very nicely from Firstlife.Ten's Everlife is just beginning in this book, her 'Firstlife' having ended and she now faces loving and protecting Killian as well as being loyal to her chosen people in Trokia. The choices she has to face, the love she finds in friends, the betrayal and the losses are all immense in Gena Showalter's 2nd book.Absolutely loved the first book, ...

    Soms wil je gewoon even een boek lezen, zonder hem uitgebreid te analyzeren. Gelukkig kan dat ook gewoon als je een eigen boekje leest...Mijn 3☆, kort samengevat: Soms wil je gewoon een pannenkoek, zonder kaas, spek, stroop en suiker. Niet dat hij met al die extra's niet lekker is, maar soms is het gewoon simpel weg allemaal even te veel. Wel erg nieuwsgierig naar het derde en laatste deel, dat dan weer wel ;)
  • Jaime (Two Chicks on Books)
    Better than book 1 but not enough to get a higher rating. I am a big fan of Gena's but this series isn't my favorite of hers. Ten and her obsession with numbers still drives me crazy. I think I keep reading this series because of Killian. And now that I'm invested I need to see how it ends, so bring on book 3!

    Heel moeilijk om hier een mening over te vormen. Ik heb bijna twee maanden over dit boek gedaan en ik heb me er echt doorheen moeten worstelen. Ik vond Tenley soms ontzettend vervelend, er was niks meer van die stoere meid over die ik in Eerste Leven had leren kennen. Daarnaast vond ik het boek veel te vol: ik haalde heel veel dingen door elkaar en er gebeurde veel te veel. Maar het einde vond ik wel spannend en het concept van Troika en Myriad v...

  • Lexxie (un)Conventional Bookviews
    This review was originally posted on (un)Conventional Bookviews Lifeblood didn't fully live up to my expectations, as Ten didn't seem the same, strong, independent girl she was in Firstlife.In the first book, Ten, while not being exactly decisive, did manage to be quite independent once she escaped the institution she was locked up in. I had quite high hopes for Lifeblood, seeing Ten deal with her afterlife, living in a realm different from the b...
  • Sara (A Gingerly Review)
    Is it wrong that I was more excited for the story to be over than the actual story itself? I can't say this enough: this was so much longer than it needed to be. It was packed full of information that had no purpose. It was such an infodump that I feel it took away from the actual story. I'm not sure I want to finish the series. I am good not knowing (or caring) what happens next.
  • Crystal
    Soo i think i waited too long to read this book cause i was reluctant to read it but probably because i finished reading a fantasyish book then a pirate book that left me wanting so much so i wasnt really ready to read this lol anyway i did enjoy this book though even though it frustrated me a bit at times lol i loved when Killian and Ten got moments together i was like ahhhhh *swoon* hes just so beautiful though *sighs dreamily* my heart broke e...
  • Amy Norris
    Writing a review for this book is so frustrating. The world building is fantastic. It is such a great concept. Unfortunately, Showalter just doesn’t pull it off. There are so many things I didn’t like in this book. I don’t like the characters, I don’t like the relationships and I hate most of the dialogue (so cringey). Showalter gives this book a large supporting cast but they aren’t fleshed out enough for me to care about any of them. ...

    DNF at 25%Firstlife was a good-enough book, but this one just wasn’t for me. Ten’s obsession with numbers really irritates me and the fact that she uses exclaimation marks every four or five sentences was the most distracting thing ever while I was reading. (And why does she have to say ‘Zero!’ in every single chapter?)P.S The scene at the beginning was literally the worst battle scene I’ve ever read in my life. The writing was just bad...
  • Anne
    I love this series. This book was a really good 2nd book in the series.I think the overall concept of the series is creative and engaging, and the plot hasn't disappointed me yet. If you like YA fantasy, then read this series.
  • ancientbookbride
    This was a quite interesting thing, really, because I can't say I particularly enjoyed Firstlife all that much. It had too many YA-book tropes and the main character just frustrated me to no ends. So I went into Lifeblood with the feeling it would be similar. In no means was it great, or did it warrant four stars, I mean the main character is still a frustrating person. However the book had things going for it, moments I truly enjoyed more than I...
  • Bree Ervin
    There are so many issues with this book I'm not even sure where to start. I guess the first thing I can say is I really don't understand all the four and five star ratings, did we even read the same book?My biggest complaint about this book is the pacing. It's horrendous. Absolutely horrendous. You get no sense of time from the story, you are just slammed with event after event at a break neck pace. The way it reads it's like it happens in just h...
  • Valerie (Dobby_Howler_Puff)
    I'm torn between a 3.5 and a 4.Ten ANNOYED MY SOUL at times. Killian is still a super douche to me. It wasn't a bad read. I enjoyed it. I even teared up a little bit at some parts. There is a lot of betrayal and heartache. Some of it is shocking, some not so much. Ten was super whiney at times, and I get it, you died. Life is rough when you are dead. It wasn't as faced paced as I thought it would be.

    Zero, I really like this series. I'm listening to it and the narrator is doing a fantastic job. I would like to think that once we are done with this life we have another life that follows. Can't wait for the final book.

    So much tension, betrayal, so many battles...Everlife cannot come fast enough. I need answers!Loved this quote: An apology without a change in behavior is worthless
  • Elizabeth
    Please check out my review of Firstlife for information about the first book in the series. Lifeblood is the second book in the Everlife series and it was awesome! While I felt like the first book was slower and that the world building took a lot of time, I hit the ground running with Lifeblood.Ten has arrived to her Secondlife and has to learn the ropes. The world building changes so we learn about Troika, all the rules, their way of living, Ten...
  • Mandy
    The story in this book is worth 5 stars. I'm subtracting 4 starts for the horrible writing. I'm giving this 1 star. 5 + 4 + 1 = 10. 10 is the number of times I cursed the author for ruining a fantastic story. I really enjoyed Firstlife, but the author made the characters so unlikable in this book."I decided to spend quality time with a favorite pastime: counting. On the map, only sixty-six trees are marked - thirty-nine on one side and twenty-sev...
