Caspia Chastain finally has what she’s always wanted. She’s in a supportive relationship with a one-of-a kind guy. (Really. He’s the only one of his kind. Ever.) Her brother is so healthy it’s mildly terrifying. She hasn’t drawn the future in ages, her school schedule is creepy professor free, and her job as Whitfield’s only Coffee Goddess remains secure.
But someone is kidnapping Nephilim descendents and using them to build an army. An unpredictable new gift threatens to consume her. With it comes a persistent dream: a strange young man with gifted blood who may hold the key to her ancestry. Whitfield has enough buried secrets to protect its residents, though, even if that protection comes with a price.
Ethan has secrets, too. He’s never spoken of his long life before meeting Caspia. When his past catches up with him, it could tear their relationship and the Realms apart. Soon, Caspia and Ethan must discover if the light and life they’ve built together can withstand the gathering darkness.
Darkness in the Blood is the second book in Vicki Keire's Gifted Blood series. Caspia has a lot to deal with in this book, most of which I can't talk about without spoiling anything. It's another well written book by this author with a lot of emotion and mystery mixed in.
I have to say that I was a little disappointed with Ethan and Caspia's relationship though. There just seemed to be a wall between them. No romance, no sparks, etc... Caspia finds out that she doesn't really know anything about him. I am still rooting for these two though. The character of Asheroth really interested me in this book. His moods change so dramatically – it makes me wonder who the real person is that he hides under his shell.
There was a bit of a cliffhanger at the end of this one. There were also some hanging threads – some characters just sort of disappeared from the storyline. Of course, there is another book which will hopefully be coming out soon. I'm looking forward to seeing what happens next, and to have my questions answered.
