Blood Rock (Skindancer, #2)

Blood Rock (Skindancer, #2) - Anthony Francis Oh, Dakota! How you’ve changed for the better! When we last left our tattooed, 6 foot tall, death-hawked, skin dancing heroine, she was adjusting to her newly adopted were-tiger daughter, Cinnamon. Motherhood has agreed with Dakota and I loved to see her in some sort of domestic bliss for a few moments. Blood Rock is a cool book. First of all, the world building is fantastic. This is the Edgeworld of Atlanta, a place where practitioners of magic, were, vampires, witches, and the like congregate. Edgeworld is dark and gritty. The magic is unique and well described. The paranormal creatures follow their own rules and most of them play dirty. Math geeks will enjoy this book, especially when some rather complex math concepts are described.One of the things I loved about this book was Dakota’s relationships with the other characters. Dakota made a loving mother for Cinnamon and reading about them shopping around for a school was so cute. Dakota settles for one love interest and while it was a surprising choice for me, it was a good match. Dakota’s relationship with her ex-girlfriend, the vampire queen was a little strained, but understandably so. This book had one of the more original story lines I’ve read in a long time. Magical Killer Grafitti – yes it sounds like a bad B movie, but very, very scary. If you haven’t read Frost Moon yet, I recommend it. Definitely read Blood Rock. Anthony Francis’ books get better and better. I can’t wait for him to hurry up and write Liquid Fire, book 3 of the Skindancer series. Thankyou Netgalley and Bell Bridge Books for a review copy of this book.Review posted on Badass Book Reviews
