Review: Shades of Blood by Samantha Young

Paperback, 342 pages
Published December 12th 2011

Eden’s life has taken a turn she would never have imagined. She’s gone from soul eater to warrior, left behind a family she was ashamed of and moved in with one she admires. She has a purpose, a future, and… she has Noah.

Life should be good.

But… the most fervent and powerful soul eaters are determined to take down the Ankh and Eden is the key to the destruction of the warrior race.
Moreover, a shadowed enemy is still after Eden, and the mortal Warriors of Neith have chosen the worst time imaginable to start an uprising.

With an enemy in every corner, the problems before her are overwhelming. Then again, Eden hasn’t come this far to let anyone snatch her new life from her…

However, just when Eden thought she’d battled the monster within and won, the warrior who took something precious from her comes back into her life, tempting Eden to take a course of revenge there is no turning back from.

Vengeance is such a bitch…

… So is Eden when the stakes are high.

A YA Paranormal Romance recommended for ages 16 and up.

Why? Why did it have to end? I want more! This series has slowly worked its way up to my top five best series. I haven’t read a series this good in a long time. And if you’ve read my review to the first two books in the series, than you know by now how obsessed I am with it.

Shades of Blood was a great ending to an AMAZING series! I would seriously love to see this series as a TV show or movies. I was at the edge of my seat reading it playing the guessing game. I wanted to skip ahead so many times just to find out what happens to Noah and Eden. Their relationship really grew in this book and I loved every single minute of it. All the obstacles and test that Eden has to face left me torn. I just wanted her to catch a break already.

I really wish I could share spoilers, but I have to remember not everyone enjoys spoilers as much as I do. All you need to know is that Blood Will Tell broke my heart, Blood Past messed with my head, and Shades of Blood left me with a craving for more. I am going to miss all the characters. Noah and Eden are kick-ass characters who you immediately fall in love with in the first book, but the other characters are just as good. I would love to read a spin off story featuring some of the other characters.
