Blurb (from Goodreads):
When Daniel and Serena unite, their accidental relationship becomes the catalyst for a twelve-year war to continue. Exposing the twisted past of a corrupt city, Daniel, Serena, and everyone they know will come together to fight. But Serena has another battle.
After a political rumor threatens their lives, Serena must leave her family and join the political front against her will. To survive apart, Daniel has to separate his love from his hatred and join forces with his worst memory to secure Vendona’s war. But very few of them will survive to see the last day. Bad blood or human, a city will burn, snow will fall, and all will be united by catastrophic secrets and irrevocable tragedy.
This book was an emotional roller-coaster! So much happened in this book, I couldn’t entirely believe my eyes. I ended up loving this book more than I thought I would. Oh and you can read my review of November Rain, i.e. book 1, here.
After Serena gives a chance to Daniel to explain everything, she agrees to play a certain role that might end up saving all the Bad Bloods. But playing that part means leaving everyone behind, she only agrees to it for one condition but that ultimately leads to more chaos. When the entire flock of Bad Bloods are suddenly ambushed once again, old truths resurfaces. But will they even live to go past that?
I loved this book more than the first one. Although the first part of this book was a bit slow but it picked its pace soon enough. This book was filled with political intrigue which made it an even more interesting read. I loved knowing the history of the two flocks which was a mystery in the first book but I did guess a little and it ended up being true but there was another plot twist I didn’t see coming which tore my heart to pieces! I almost cried! I couldn’t believe that actually happened. But I’m not telling you guys, you have to read it to know what happens!
I liked the characters even more in this book, Serena was a great protagonist and I loved Daniel from the start. All the other characters were pretty amazing as well. Everything was executed so well. So many secrets were revealed and I really enjoyed it! Although this book ended in a positive note but as there are going to be other books in this series as well, I am hoping we’ll get to know more about Robert because he still remained a kind of mystery to me although his past was revealed but I need to know his part of the story. Nonetheless even if it’s not his story I’m excited to continue reading this series!
Overall, November Snow was a great read! I enjoyed the plot and the characters kept me interested throughout the book. This book was pretty low on romance but I liked Serena and Daniel’s relationship. The writing was great and easy to read. I’m definitely interested to read more books by this author in the future!
