Torment is the second in the Bloodlines trilogy This book fascinated me for a variety of reasons The strongest pull that drew me in was Lindsay s interesting take on sorcery and Hell, even though as a Christian, I don t agree with them, it is just a fictional story A close second is Lindsay s skillful ability to paint a strong cast of likable young adult characters from the first book and allowed us learn even in the second This sequel delves deep into their daily interactions with each other a [...]
I would have finished this book last night but when hubby left for the football game my daughter and I took advantage to watch our tv shows on the DVR and we are now caught up with the rest of ya on Grey s Anatomy.I loved the first book Bloodlines so much, when I finished my review I bought the second book from BN I made the comment about how the ebook pages were wacky, well they were wacky with this book as well But instead of skipping 4 pages a flip like the first book, Torment skipped 2 pages [...]
I think I m crazy.Torment was not a vast improvement over bloodlines Did Keira develop No Did Keira find love I don t care, I m not invested in what happens to these guys The plotting I guess you could say it improved because there weren t any chapters dedicated to housecleaning A note from the author herself states that those chapters have been reduced in recent editions of Bloodlines but it s still bizarre in places Example Demons attack the main characters, the main characters fight them off, [...]
After the end of Bloodlines, I had so many questions when starting this book It is a little darker, a little violent, and much romantic When Keira comes back from Hell things become very complicated Especially when she doesn t come back alone.Eligos, a character met only briefly in the first novel, comes to the forefront in this one, which causes all kinds of jealousy in the young man who has fallen in love with Keira And no, I am not telling you which young man that is That would spoil the fi [...]
4.5 starsThis is book two in this series To see my review of the first book Bloodlines click HERE Torment picks up right where Bloodline left off and you are pulled right back into Keira s crazy world I think I enjoyed this book even than the first The excitement is in full swing as we already know the characters I don t have too much to say about this book The author has created such an amazing world that will really have you question you perception of heaven, hell, angels and demons.I don t w [...]
This author is really fantasic I am anxiously waiting for the third book in the series I have a Kindle and have not purchased a paper copy book in 3 years I loved the first story so much I couldn t wait for it to come out on Kindle so I ordered the paperback It did not disappoint
Oh my god, I can t wait for this book.UPDATE Just noticed the characters have been listed OMG Lilith and Lucifer What s going to happen next
So this is one of those books where I can t fully decide if I like it or not I feel like the story itself was interesting with cool plots and decent characters but I feel like the execution of the books fell through The writing was done poorly, the narration was terrible and thoughts did not seem to be presented clearly That being said, if the book was edited properly and the book itself was written properly, I think the plot was intriguing and the books would have been spectacular Unfortunately [...]
Angela s Review Torment is the sequel to Kendal s debut novel, Bloodlines and second book in the trilogy The characters were flushed out in this book We got to know them deeper than their appearances and some of it was ugly I enjoyed how this book DIDN T fall into the dreaded sequel curse and not live up to the quality of the first There were a few spots that felt slow when the gang was in between battles but it might have been necessary to allow the reader to breathe freely every once and a wh [...]

This was an October read for my book club, The Book Cove Torment is the sequel to Kendal s debut novel, Bloodlines and second book in the trilogy The characters were flushed out in this book We got to know them deeper than their appearances and some of it was ugly I enjoyed how this book DIDN T fall into the dreaded sequel curse and not live up to the quality of the first There were a few spots that felt slow when the gang was in between battles but it might have been necessary to allow the rea [...]
Against my better judgement, I read the second installment after all If I was annoyed with the language in the first book, that was nothing compared to this one This may just be me, but, when writing a series the language and dialogue exchanged, should be consistent throughout I found that the characters were speaking in a completely different manner to what they did in the first book excessively using words such as mate , bloody , fancy etc words that were not once used in the first novel It s [...]
For my book club s recent read, we read and discussed Torment by Linsay Anne Kendall Torment is the second book in her Bloodlines series I loved this series and thought Torment was an incredible sequel.My favorite aspect of this book was that it was not like many sequels that fall flat compared to the first book I didn t feel that it was irrelevant In fact, this book complimented the series beautifully I felt that Torment gave the characters depth and had developed the characters well Some of t [...]
Once again I apologise for the late review Tormentwell what can I say it really does torment you This story goes a lot deeper than Bloodlines did We learn a lot about Keira and the young mens families, and the best part, we see a whole lot of Eligos swoons Keira and her friends are being tormented in every sense of the word by the person or thing that wants to kill them The group are close to exhaustion and being torn apart on occasions There are a lot fight scenes, a very beautiful and matur [...]
Review from busymomsbookreviewsTorment was even better than Bloodlines, Lindsay is a wonderful writer The second book picks up after Keira has died and the group is trying to deal with her death During a battle Keira comes back from hell with Eligos and an army of demons A whole new set of drama enfolds when she comes back Both of the boys that Keira had previously seen are jealous of Keiras relationship with Eligos There are new characters who show up and we learn about the history of the magi [...]
the writing style is very simple like the first one and the story is always so interesting I was very curious to know what had happened to Kiera in hell, and it was the parts of the story I love the most The feelings of the characters are predictable and frustating but we re so happy for them at the end I was so surprised by Tyler, I didn t think he could change like that We don t learn a lot about the fight but we undertand little by little what they want I think it would be epic I can t wait t [...]
Immediately read this after reading the first in this series, Bloodines I really enjoyed this one a little than the first Mostly because I think in the first book I was trying to get used to the writing style This book had an unexpected ending ugh, and cliffhanger so I am anxiously waiting for the final book in this trilogy This book takes me out of my comfort zone with actions from the characters that I don t necessarily agree with Won t specify since it would be a spoiler It is also such a di [...]
This is a million times better than the first Torment.Kiera comes back from hell and its descriptive than last time.There are new characters some are better described than others.On the plus side she has done her usual thing.A cliffhanger.d when I say a cliffhanger,I mean a cliffhanger.Aarrrggghhhhh I hate them
I enjoyed this book much than the first Well worthy of the 5 star rating This is much in depth, and leave you with a killer cliffhanger I just hope we don t have to wait too long for the finale.
