Reviews Of Blood and Bone (Chronicles of The One, #2)

  • Phrynne
    At last I found out what happened to Katie and Fred and the babies, and all the others who managed to survive book one and make it into this, the second book in the trilogy. Let's be perfectly clear you must read Year One before you read this book or large chunks of it will be meaningless.Of Blood and Bone is very much a middle book. It does not have all the fear and horror of Year One but instead it builds up the central characters and prepares ...

    If i could give this more than 5 stars I would! I had the opportunity to read an advanced reader copy of this book. This is book 2 of the Chronicles of the One. (If you didn't read the first book, you should do that before reading this one.) The story continues and gets darker, much more intense. As Fallon begins training for leadership and battle, she grows into a powerful young woman who knows what she must do to save the people she loves. Many...

    Dreading, and knowing what she knew would happen on her thirteenth birthday, nevertheless when Mallick arrived on horseback to collect her Fallon Swift was shocked. Her parents were shocked, as were her brothers. But she was The One, and she had to learn to be The One – it would be two years before she would see her family again. Could she do it? Was she strong enough?Although the Doom of thirteen years prior was over, the destruction and devas...

    You can find this review and more at Novel Notions. I am completely blown away by Nora’s newest venture. Chronicles of the One is a perfect blending of post-apocalyptic dystopia and epic fantasy. The fact that Nora, after decades of writing romance laced with tendrils of the supernatural, would take such a giant leap into writing a radically different story, is commendable. The fact that she not only pulled it off by absolutely nailed it comman...

    Of Blood and Bone is ridiculous. It is a disappointment to book 1. The novel is unnecessarily long and its action scenes are too far apart.Nora Roberts definitely didn't write Of Blood and Bone. The novel is poor, really poor. There is too many gibberish.Few sentences were dedicated to the Uncanny, Purity warriors and the Raiders and that's a bad thing.Fallon got an owl, Fallon got a wolf, Fallon got a horse, Fallon got a magical book. Fallon, Fa...

    4 Stars!! 🌟🌟🌟🌟If you enjoy Post-apocalyptic, Dystopian, Survival... you get all three with this series, but, you also get Fantasy!!! This is only my 3rd book by Nora Roberts so I don't have much to compare it to but ya'll,.... I just love this series so far! I know she usually writes Romance, but these are in a totally different league and there is something in it for everyone !! What a fantastic follow up to Year One. It succeeds Yea...

    Must read series! (buddy read with Heather and Shannon)

    Of Blood and Bone, the second novel of the Chronicles of The One trilogy, is another expertly crafted story from Nora Roberts, and although it's stated that it works as a standalone I feel that it is better to have read Year One first as you get a deeper understanding of the plot, characters and world. Year One was a superb start to this fantasy series, but this is even better. I have trouble getting my head around the fact that Ms Roberts is not...

    Ugh! Seriously! I have to wait a whole year for the conclusion? This is what happens when you don't read blurbs. THIS WAS SO GOOD! Even better than the first book!

    So good. RTC

    I know that I am low man on the totem pole regarding this novel as it has gotten much well reviews but...................Of Blood and Bone is a fantasy/dystopian novel book two in a trilogy. Although I did not read Book One, the prologue and first few chapters did well to acclimate me to the previous book so I felt this a good way to also introduce this as what could be a stand alone novel. For this point, Ms. Roberts did well.The story revolves ...
    |4.5 stars|Enjoyed every bit of this book. Nora Roberts brings us another thrilling story with a lot of world building and magic. Fallon is one of my favorite protagonists now, she is so brave and intimidating. And she is also enthusiastic and focussed.The plot is amazing, loved all the twists, and it is also a happy reunion, which made me very happy.The author has given us the best of this new world, full of emotional trauma, magic, battles and ...
  • Tina
    Second installment in Nora Roberts' horror-fantasy-romance trilogy.In some ways this feels more like a NR books than the first book in the trilogy which felt like NR was branching out a bit. This one had a lot of the familiar markers of her parnormal work. But one thing it didn't have was a central romance which actually does separate it from her other trilogy work.Also most of the book was spent with a main character of who starts the book at ag...

    Another 5 Star read by Nora Roberts and her Chronicles of the One series. In the second book of the series we focus on Fallon and her training for leading the people to fight the Dark. We also find ourselves back in New Hope and the gang is all back along with the twins now in their mid-teens and ready to fight. This series transports me right to the world and I feel that I am right there beside each character living through their actions and fee...

    Nora Robert’s fans have waited a LONG year for this book. Of Blood and Bone is the second book of the Chronicles of the One trilogy. If you haven’t read Year One, I highly recommend you read it before you read this book. In Of Blood and Bone, we move forward about ten years and get to see glimpses of what life is like after the Doom virus destroyed most of the world. New Hope is apparently thriving while other places are rift with terror. Fal...

    Pub date: Dec 2018The middle book of a trilogy (I think), this one stuttered in the middle for me. Fallon and her training was a good read for the first third of the book, but the 2nd third with the war coming and a romance looming, I just had to speed through. The first kiss was uncomfortably nonconsensual and what was with every time she talked about her uncle's wife she called her a whore? Yes, she was evil, but with no matching name calling f...

    I received this book as part of a Goodreads giveaway.First, if you haven't read Year One I suggest you do. While there is a brief recap in the prologue, I feel you need to read the first to get into the second.Second, this is a different Nora Roberts than anything I have read before, and I have read 90% of her books. For that reason this book, as well as the first, was a little hard to get into. While her usual trilogies have a pattern (three men...

    ‘They said a virus ended the world. But it was magick, black as moonless midnight.’This is the second book of Ms Roberts’s ‘Chronicles of The One’ trilogy, and I’d strongly recommend reading ‘Year One’ (book one) first. ‘Of Blood and Bone’ opens about a decade after the end of ‘Year One’. While most of the world has been destroyed by the Doom virus, the settlement of New Hope seems to be thriving. But elsewhere, vicious ga...
  • Nurse Lisa In Ohio (PRN Book Reviews)
    I do love the mind of a writer, you know? When Nora Roberts sets pen to paper, I’m always enchanted and this series has me hook, line, sinker. I remember when I placed my preorder; I was sooooooo sad I had to wait until December to read book two! Now I’ve devoured it and will likely have to wait a wholw ‘nother year for book three! 😥 waah!Seriously, great series, expertly written, and beautifully edited. Superb.
  • Debrac2014
    I enjoyed it! The story had the feel of Nora's other witch stories, which I've enjoyed over the years! Enjoyed going back to New Hope and seeing the characters from Year One!

    In a way, this is a tough book to review and rate. On the one hand, I really liked it. It sucked me in from page one and I enjoyed every word. For me, reading a Nora Roberts book is like slipping into my coziest pajamas, blanket, and reading nook. She's a skilled author, and her writing and characters appeal to me on so many levels. So I genuinely enjoyed this book. I loved spending time with Fallon's family, observing the dynamic there and seein...

    (Read the blurb for basic story set up. Better yet, make sure you've read the first book, Year One, or parts of this will be somewhat confusing)...Well, I'll say this, Nora sure does know how to spin a yarn! I kept turning the pages to see what would happen next.Now, one's enjoyment of the book will depend on one's tolerance for what I like to call High Wiccan.Lots of spells, rituals--so on and so forth. I can take it or leave it--I've been readi...

    So much happened in this one and a great amount of time passed as well. I liked that we got to see Fallon embark on her training, how she won over people to help her and her coming home to her family as well. It was interesting how being home again allowed her to come up with a plan, one that would take her back to New Hope were so much started again. I think the most interesting thing about being back in New Hope was seeing all the adults a bit ...
  • Barbara Heintz
    I enjoy audiobooks, and this series is very well narrated by Julia Whelan. Saying that I want you to know I listened to the first one again to get back into the setting and mindsets of the characters before listening to the second. I would suggest you do the same before you read or listen to OF BLOOD AND BONE.Nora Roberts did not disappoint with either one. The first book, YEAR ONE, set up the story and showed the reader the devastation the black...
  • Peggy Jaeger
    Book 2 doesn't disappoint. I read this one much more slowly than the first because I wanted to watch for Fallon's internal change from child to teen t0 acceptance of what she is - THE ONE. As she always does, Roberts reeled me in and hooked me from page one. You truthfully forget Fallon Swift is a 13 year old when the book starts and only 16 or 17 when it ends. She seems generations older and wiser. Kick-ass brave and wicked smart as a witch, elf...
