Thicker Than Blood (Twenty-Sided Sorceress #6) By: Annie Bellet
If you are going through hell… keep going…
Wounded, defeated, and flung across the wilderness, Jade Crow and her peeps faced their worst enemy and not all have escaped… or survived.
Separated from her friends, their fates unknown, and without her magic, Jade must discover her own heritage and unlock her true powers… or else her next fight with Samir will be her last.
For Jade, life has come down to two choices…
Level up. Or die.
So I really like this series, the ideas the characters, the nerdy references, but the last two books have been too short. They’re in line with the rest of the series, but the final battle just keeps getting dragged out. There still isn’t a resolution at the end of this one and the side characters are almost not in it at all. It’s disappointing.
Maybe if the series was advertised as a serial instead it wouldn’t be as bad because you’d know what to expect, but the first four books had fairly self-contained stories and the last two haven’t. I keep reading because I’m invested in the world and the characters, but I don’t know how much longer I’ll stick around.
If you liked the previous books you’ll like this one, but don’t expect a satisfying ending.
