Beneath Blood and Bone by Madeline Sheehan & Claire C. Riley

This book was like a good orgasm. It slowly built, keeping me hooked, and leaving me satisfied at the end. This book takes a look at the settlement of survivors that Leisel and Evelyn briefly stayed in and eventually escaped from in the first book of this series. We met Eagle through Evelyn’s point of view and it was crazy getting into his head. Once inside, we saw how indifferent Eagle is to the world around him, but his encounter with Evelyn has left him shaken. In his weakness, recovering from Evelyn, he is presented with innocence in the form of Autumn. Autumn’s pull is so strong that even violent, indifferent Eagle is not immune to it. Slowly, Autumn breaks through Eagle’s defenses while he is also breaking through hers. Through becoming vulnerable to each other, they become sturdy enough to stand against the leaders of the settlement and make their own way in this unstable world.

I give this book 4 stars.


This is an amazing series. This book wasn’t as action packed as the first in the series, but the message was just as loud. This series is about finding a piece of peace after you’ve lost everything. This book was a slow burn that I just love. The reader experiences the ups and downs of the MCs day to day life. But all the while, we’re given pieces to this puzzle and when its complete its  beautiful and you want to hang it on the wall. The writing was amazing and I can’t wait to read the next installment.

I give it four stars.
