I received a copy of this book from the author for an honest review.
Summary from Goodreads:
Seventeen-year-old Serena isn’t human. She is a bad blood, and in the city of Vendona, bad bloods are executed. In the last moments before she faces imminent death, a prison guard aids her escape and sparks a revolt. Back on the streets determined to destroy her kind, Serena is spared by a fellow bad blood named Daniel. His past tragedies are as equally mysterious as her connection to them.
Unbeknownst to the two, this connection is the key to winning the election for bad bloods’ rights to be seen as human again. But Serena is the only one who can secure Vendona’s vote. Now, Daniel must unite with her before all hope is lost and bad bloods are eradicated, even if it means exposing secrets worse than death itself. United or not, a city will fight, rain will fall, and all will be threatened by star-crossed love and political corruption.
I thought this book was pretty good even though it did take me longer to read than i thought it would. I have never read any books from this author before and I wasn’t really sure what to expect when I first started it but I was definitely surprised by how much I enjoyed November rain. I loved the story and characters although there were a few times where I thought it was a little slow but it did pick up once I was able to sit down and read it. I also thought the writing style flowed really well and I really enjoyed the characters but I did get a little confused at first because there were a lot of characters but once I was able to figure out which characters where in each group I did read it a little faster. I loved that we got to hear from both Serena’s POV and Daniels POV and read the different perspectives on each situation.
Overall I really enjoyed this book even though it was a little slow at first but I did love all of the characters. I would definitely recommend this one and can’t wait to see how the story ends in November snow.
