Review - Invidious by: Bianca Scardoni




The steep descent into Hell is always paved with good intentions.

My name is Jemma Blackburn, and I'm a Slayer. Finding out I wasn't human was only the beginning of my problems. My best-friend, Taylor, is still missing, and so is the Immortal Amulet, and it's my job alone to get them both back. I don't know who I can trust, and I'm still not sure I'm cut out for any of this, but I'm determined to figure it all out, or die trying.

As if that wasn't bad enough, there's a new enemy in town and they've come bearing gifts—an ancient prophesy that is going to blur the very lines between good and evil. And, apparently, my blood is tied to the center of it. I don't have all the answers yet, but I’m getting closer and closer to discovering the truth. The truth about my bloodlines, and about who I really am.

And, believe me when I say, it's going to change everything.

Oh, Invidious! Why do you have to end on a cliff hanger like that? I want to say I knew it.. and I yep, I knew it. Overall, Invidious was a fantastic second installment in this series. This story was a page-turner and moved just as fast as the first book and I loved it.

All of our main characters we've grown to love are back and stronger than ever. I will admit I feel like there was a lot of setting up going on in this one and nothing "huge" happening with any of the characters, minus Dominic. I really liked Dominic's role in this book, and I stand by what I said about the first book... I'm still a Dominic fan to the end.

Towards the end, I will say I felt it was a little rushed. The major ending events almost confused me as some points until I realized what was happening. However, overall, Invidious was a fantastic book of discovery, deception and darkness. Yes, all the D's. I'm super excited to see what comes next in this series!
