Have you ever been teetering on the edge of a cliff and felt a rush of adrenaline run through you? Reading Body and Blood by Amanda Havard gives a similar feeling. Body and Blood is the third installment of the Survivors series. There are many fantastic elements of the book. Here are a few:
Never Gets Old: The turning of every page is a step forward on this incredible journey. Every page we learn something new. Something important. There isn’t any fluff or filling in this novel and that’s part of what makes Amanda Havard such a great writer. She makes every page meaningful.
You Never Know What You Think You Know: I thought I had it pretty figured out. Until I got into the book and realized there is a reason this is a five book series and not a trilogy. There is still so much that we don’t know. Like with the point it Never Gets Old every page is a surprise.
Multiple Points of View: This is originally something that I was very iffy on. I am traditionally not a fan of books changing point of views in the middle of a series. Likewise I am not a fan of books that have more than one point of view. Body and Blood moves between Sadie, Everett, and Mark. What I discovered within the pages was that each of the changing narrations added so much to the story. As a reader I learned so much from each of these characters. It is crazy to think just how big of an impact this could have had on the story, but it did!
She Makes You Change Sides: Yeah. Before Body and Blood I was firmly Team Cole, but now…somehow along the way…I became…Team…Mark???? How did she do it! How did this happen! Those were the thoughts rushing through my brain. The answer is that Amanda is able to establish all of the characters. Fully develop them and the different narrations really helped that. My heart did a little pitter patter for a different character in this book.
She Has A Kickass Villain: Alexander Raven. The only thing I can say about him is he is suave and collected. Not your typical villain. This one will charm the pants off you and drag you into his circle before you know what happened.
Amanda Havard has a loyal fan in me and I hope that you all check her out too! These books are awesome you guys! Filled to the brim with amazing storytelling this is a book you won’t be able to put down!

About BODY & BLOOD:
How many answers you seek are just a part of you, waiting to be found?
The game has changed.
Fresh from her first brush with mortality, a fragile Sadie Matthau is playing human with Cole Hardwick while the Survivors endure unimaginable tragedy. Wrought with the first deaths of their own kind, a tyrant who will torture them, and an opponent more terrifying than anyone could have foreseen, the Survivors are facing their end.
Told from three points of view, The Survivors: Body & Blood is a bloodcurdling, mind-bending, heart-stopping ride. As Sadie and the Winters uncover more enemies, more history, and more answers, they find themselves brought closer together and ripped further apart. And all the while, a haunting Alexander Raven lurks at the edge of Sadie s lifeline, at the darkening fringes of her mind.
As the Survivors descend into chaos, Sadie realizes a painful truth: the deepest of secrets leave the darkest of marks.
Caught between a terrifying fantasy and her own grim reality, Body & Blood is the story of Sadie s dance with her demons, future, past, and present.
