My review for
November Rain ( Bad Bloods, #1)
Shannon A. Thompson
4 out of 5 stakes!
Wow, this book started off crazy and good. Serena is one of two main characters. When we meet her she is about to die, because all bad bloods must die. In a city where humans and bad bloods divide them, humans seeing anyone different as not worthy.
But someone helps Serena escape this death sentence and Serena is not sure why? But after a moment of wondering she leaves.
That’s when she is almost caught and runs into Daniel or rather he finds her.
He helps her in the alleyway. Daniel is another of the main characters. This book is told from two points of view. And I love that about this book.
From there things only get better and better.
When Daniel gets Serena to a safe zone he tells her it’s okay no one will hurt her there. She doesn’t believe him at first. Because why would any one want to help a bad blood out? Daniel explains he is a bad blood as well.
Although every bad blood has unique powers that they can use, Serena absorbs others powers.
Now with Serena back on her side with her make shift family all she can think about his Daniel and how kind he was to her. But the leader of her little family warns her to stay away from him.
Now a lot happens in this book that I don’t want to give away spoilers.
But I do want to say this is such a great read for anyone who roots for the under dogs and likes a little bit of love in a book. I think it has a little bit of everything for everyone.
So what are you waiting for? Go pick up a copy of this book today.

In the last moments before she faces imminent death, a prison guard aids her escape and sparks a revolt. Back on the streets determined to destroy her kind, Serena is spared by a fellow bad blood named Daniel. His past tragedies are as equally mysterious as her connection to them. Unbeknownst to the two, this connection is the key to winning the election for bad bloods’ rights to be seen as human again. But Serena is the only one who can secure Vendona’s vote. Now, Daniel must unite with her before all hope is lost and bad bloods are eradicated, even if it means exposing secrets worse than death itself.
