"My Firstlife is over, but my Everlife is only now beginning." With her last living breath, Tenley "Ten" Lockwood made her choice and picked her realm in the.
Table of contents

I don't want to give anything away but Lifeblood starts right where Firstlife ended so you won't be too lost or confused. You're pulled into the story right from the start, there are no dull moments, everything fits together perfectly, every little detail is important, numbers are too, the poems are still amazing and so clever, you will fall in love with this series even more. The writing is everything, this series is so unique and delivers a beautiful and powerful message. Ten grows a lot in this book, I really like her and I love her evolution in Lifeblood.

She learns a lot from her new home and it was interesting to watch her learn how to forgive herself and others, how to become a better person with her hardships and flaws. Of course, her decision to be with Troika will have consequences, especially for her relationship with Killian but you'll have to read the book to find out more. Killian is an important part of the story as well, I don't want to say too much but for all the romantics out there, don't fret, Gena will not let you down. That's all I'll say. I loved loved loved the characters in this book, you'll see old ones and new ones.

You'll miss some, love some and hate some. Like I said, emotional roller coaster. Lifeblood was not everything I wanted it to be, or everything I was expecting it to be but it was amazing nonetheless. Gena is not afraid to write things her way, she wants to please her readers for sure but she's the author and she leads the dance, we just have to trust and follow her.

I can't wait to read Everlife, I am so ready for the next chapter in Ten's life and I want to know what's going to happen to everyone. I've got one last thing to say: Archer, View all 14 comments. Jan 31, Mlpmom Book Reviewer rated it it was amazing Shelves: arc-book-read , kindle-books. Can't believe it took me so long to read this because it was fabulous. Full review to come! Edited to add review: Having falling in love with the first book in the Everlife series, I knew the second had a lot to live up to and with middle book syndrome being so dominant in this genre, I won't lie, I was a bit nervous going into this.

I really shouldn't have been nervous. This book hooked me once again, from the very first chapter. It didn't take me long to once again be pulled back into the unique Can't believe it took me so long to read this because it was fabulous. It didn't take me long to once again be pulled back into the unique world that Showalter created and once again be immersed in it all and fall back in love with the characters. I knew this book would be different, with everything that happened in the first, there was no way it couldn't be but I wasn't expecting to like all the changes.

I thought it would be hard with key characters from the first missing but you know what, Showalter pulled it off beautifully without it hurting the story line or drive of the plot at all. In fact, I think it even helped it. So much happens and yet so much stays the same. Ten still has an amazing group of friends to support her and still so much to learn about herself and of course, the war is still raging without an end insight. This was such a fun entertaining sequel and I lapped it up.

It was hard to resist and hard to put down. I can't wait to see how explosive the ending will be in the last book. View 2 comments. Jul 26, Kayla rated it really liked it. Lifeblood by Gena Showalter This sequel follows Ten as she has made her decision on where she wants to go after her life is ended. This causes problems for her and the boy she is falling for, Killian. Killian will also have to choose lose the war or the girl? They are so memerobale and amazing! They are soulmates and I love them with all my heart.

I would highly suggest reading this series in order as the first book kind of ends on a bit of a cliffie.

Some answers are present in this book but mostly, Showalter raises more questions and puts Ten, our heroine, in some very disastrous situations. One of my favorite parts of the first book was Ten. I really like him. Better than book 1 but not enough to get a higher rating. I am a big fan of Gena's but this series isn't my favorite of hers. Ten and her obsession with numbers still drives me crazy.

I think I keep reading this series because of Killian. And now that I'm invested I need to see how it ends, so bring on book 3! View 1 comment. There are so many issues with this book I'm not even sure where to start. I guess the first thing I can say is I really don't understand all the four and five star ratings, did we even read the same book?

My biggest complaint about this book is the pacing. It's horrendous. Absolutely horrendous. You get no sense of time from the story, you are just slammed with event after event at a break neck pace. The way it reads it's like it happens in just hours, but she explains at one point that Ten has b There are so many issues with this book I'm not even sure where to start. The way it reads it's like it happens in just hours, but she explains at one point that Ten has been in her ever life for months. As a reader there is no sense of time elapsing to allow growth and development of the characters or relationships or even the world they live in, it's just event, event, event Ten is absolutely devastated and thrown into mourning In the first book Mana is described as a food for spirits that only needs to be eaten once a day, yet Ten gets to her ever life and there is constant eating going on.

There are Mana restaurants, Mana chips, the apartments have kitchens and she mentions more than once about her cupboards being bare. None of it lining up with the earlier descriptions of Mana. Events after the missions are another example: after her first mission she is told she has to go to a debriefing because there is Always a debriefing, yet she never had to go to another debriefing in the book. After her second mission she is told to go see a healer and told that she is Always supposed to see a healer after every mission, but she didn't see a healer after her first mission Troika is supposed to be a realm of structure and stability, but there is no consistency there.

Then of course there is all the YA tropes to deal with. Ten has just barely entered her second life so let's send her on a dangerous mission and let her lead because she is the protagonist. Oh and let's send her on another mission and another. Let's forget about all the people who actually have experience, the teenager gets center stage.

There is still a ton of "Zero! I hate when romances take the bad boy who has done horrible things, you know like convincing a multitude of women that he loved them when he was really only trying to get them to sign with his realm and once they sign he abadons them and moves on to the next target, and suddenly he just changes everything because the new girl he met is the One. I hate that story line, because men like that don't change, but it gets romanticized in books and movies, and so some women end up living their lives thinking they can change a guy who is a complete jerk, or that if she were just special enough, if she were the One, he would change for her It's bs and it's been played out so much it would genuinely be refreshing for a good guy to get the girl.

I read this one because I was curious about what Ten would do as a conduit, if it weren't for that curiosity I probably wouldn't have picked it up at all. Now that I've read it, I won't be reading another of this series, and I don't recommend you pick up this book unless you are utterly in love with YA tropes, zero character and world develoent, and getting slammed endlessly with events that are trying desperately to drive the plot along.

One of Five stars. Don't waste your time reading this. May 16, Ronda rated it it was amazing. That ending though! Those last few words Loved Lifeblood, it followed on very nicely from Firstlife. Ten's Everlife is just beginning in this book, her 'Firstlife' having ended and she now faces loving and protecting Killian as well as being loyal to her chosen people in Trokia.

The choices she has to face, the love she finds in friends, the betrayal and the losses are all immense in Gena Showalter's 2nd book. Absolutely loved the first book, the 2nd book, for me, was so different and even be That ending though! Absolutely loved the first book, the 2nd book, for me, was so different and even better in some ways. The book is well written, easy to follow and has left me with a thirst for book 3, aptly named Everlife! Highly recommended. View all 3 comments. Good golly gosh, there's another one?!?!

Dec 28, Lexxie un Conventional Bookworms rated it it was ok Shelves: netgalley , arc , releases , romance , read-in , paranormal , review-books , fantasy , coyer-blackout-winter This review was originally posted on un Conventional Bookviews Lifeblood didn't fully live up to my expectations, as Ten didn't seem the same, strong, independent girl she was in Firstlife. In the first book, Ten, while not being exactly decisive, did manage to be quite independent once she escaped the institution she was locked up in.

I had quite high hopes for Lifeblood, seeing Ten deal with her afterlife, living in a realm different from the boy she had spent a lot of time with - one who was This review was originally posted on un Conventional Bookviews Lifeblood didn't fully live up to my expectations, as Ten didn't seem the same, strong, independent girl she was in Firstlife. I had quite high hopes for Lifeblood, seeing Ten deal with her afterlife, living in a realm different from the boy she had spent a lot of time with - one who was protecting her and fighting alongside her until the end.

What got to me was that for a lot of the time, Ten was mooning over Killian rather than getting to know Troika and the Troikans she was supposed to spend eternity with. She was not working very hard at unlocking her key to the grid, nor at understanding just how her realm worked. She was quite judgemental, and I found her to be a lot less interesting than she was in Firstlife.

There was some action, with fights between the realms, and fights over humans who were unsigned. I just didn't feel like I was involved in any of it in Lifeblood. The realms were less interesting, and I found the characters to be a lot flatter than those I met in the first book. It could be that this one suffers from second book syndrome, and I will definitely pick up the next book in the series, but my expectations will be lowered accordingly before I get to it.

Lifeblood was in many ways just more of the same as in Firstblood, though. The realms fighting over humans, and also fighting each other. And she was a lot less discerning of the people around her, not understanding that because they were all spirits, they weren't really different from what they had been as humans. She remembered her life from before, but it didn't seem to me as if she had really learned anything from it.

And she didn't appear to realise that all other Troikans also held on to who they had been as humans. Written in first person point of view from Ten's perspective, I think it made it worse because I really didn't enjoy her very much in Lifeblood. It was not fun to be in her head, and even with the dialogues and the action, the story didn't really work well for me. My worth isn't measured by other people's feelings for me. I am who I am, and my worth is my worth. Those dreams They can mean one of two things: something or nothing. Love that comes with strings isn't love. It's just another form of selfishness, liking what the other person can do for you or make you feel.

Is it wrong that I was more excited for the story to be over than the actual story itself? I can't say this enough: this was so much longer than it needed to be. It was packed full of information that had no purpose. It was such an infodump that I feel it took away from the actual story. I'm not sure I want to finish the series. I am good not knowing or caring what happens next. Mar 03, Cassie James rated it it was amazing.

It seems like the reason Writing a review for this book is so frustrating. The book is also woefully predictable. There is one part where there is a spy. I guess my main issue is there is a lot of showing vs. Seriously it is such a shame because like I said, the world is sooooo good and the concept is great.

Lifeblood picks up immediately after the events of Firstlife. There is a third option, one that is for those who remain unsigned when they die.

Mar 13, ancientbookbride rated it liked it Shelves: releases , e-book , three-stars , read-in , ya-science-fiction. This was a quite interesting thing, really, because I can't say I particularly enjoyed Firstlife all that much. It had too many YA-book tropes and the main character just frustrated me to no ends. So I went into Lifeblood with the feeling it would be similar. In no means was it great, or did it warrant four stars, I mean the main character is still a frustrating person. However the book had things going for it, moments I truly enjoyed more than I'd thought I would, side characters I really liked This was a quite interesting thing, really, because I can't say I particularly enjoyed Firstlife all that much.

However the book had things going for it, moments I truly enjoyed more than I'd thought I would, side characters I really liked. Could I give halves, this would be a 3. It was better than Firstlife and now my hopes lie that the last book in the series will be even better Mar 22, Vathna Dany rated it did not like it Shelves: did-not-finish , dystopia , young-adult , romance , fantasy , abandoned. The writing was just bad. Nov 25, Anne rated it really liked it. I love this series. This book was a really good 2nd book in the series.

I think the overall concept of the series is creative and engaging, and the plot hasn't disappointed me yet. If you like YA fantasy, then read this series. I just don't even know.

Lol im like yass you understamd and support Ten like thats awesomee and i feel so guilty for thinking this guy was the traitor his name escapes me he was taking care of her baby brother who was absolutely adorable Jeremy and so cool he could speak to her through the grid!

Anyway i didnt like Elizabeth she was so mean and how do u attack someone twice!! Archer's brother is such a douche : i really thought he was good a player but a good person but nope he decided to be a traitor -. Ughh lol overall i liked the book and want the next one sooner like now lol Jun 09, Mandy rated it did not like it. The story in this book is worth 5 stars. I'm subtracting 4 starts for the horrible writing. I'm giving this 1 star. I really enjoyed Firstlife, but the author made the characters so unlikable in this book. On the map, only sixty-six trees are marked - thirty-nine on one side and twenty-seven on the other.

Sixty-six is the atomic numb The story in this book is worth 5 stars. Sixty-six is the atomic number of dysprosium, a lanthanide. A lanthanide is any series of fifteen metallic elements, often collectively know as the rare earth elements. Thirty-nine is the atomic number of yttrium. Equal to three trimesters, the length of a human pregnancy.

Twenty-seven, the atomic number of cobalt. The number of bones in the human hand. The number of 'cubies' in a Rubik's cube. She turned a likable main character into a whiny, hormonal, self-obsessed, Rainman. I couldn't help but hear Dustin Hoffman's voice when I was reading her pointless number-rants. I haven't enjoyed a story-line this much in a long time, but the author completely ruined it for me. Sadly, I don't even have the heart to read the next one when it comes out. This book was such a disappointment.

I'm torn between a 3. Killian is still a super douche to me. It wasn't a bad read. I enjoyed it. I even teared up a little bit at some parts. There is a lot of betrayal and heartache. Some of it is shocking, some not so much. Ten was super whiney at times, and I get it, you died.

Life is rough when you are dead. It wasn't as faced paced as I thought it would be. Zero, I really like this series. I'm listening to it and the narrator is doing a fantastic job. I would like to think that once we are done with this life we have another life that follows. Can't wait for the final book. So much tension, betrayal, so many battles Everlife cannot come fast enough. I need answers! Loved this quote: An apology without a change in behavior is worthless.

Lifeblood is the second book in the Everlife series and it was awesome! While I felt like the first book was slower and that the world building took a lot of time, I hit the ground running with Lifeblood. Ten has arrived to her Secondlife and has to learn the ropes.

Lifeblood (novel)

She makes new friends and also quite Please check out my review of Firstlife for information about the first book in the series. She makes new friends and also quite a few enemies. Ten grows a lot in Lifeblood. I like the person she become a lot more and also how she made peace with her previous life.

Although Killian and Ten are now in opposite realms that are at war with each other they are more in love with each other every day. They learn to trust each other, to rely in each other. The romance plays a bigger part in this installment. I adore Killian be still my heart , and specially Killian and Ten together. They make each other stronger, better, eager to fight and conquer. I have no idea how she came up with such an intricate, amazing world, but is is so awesome and easy to follow.

The plot is full of action, battles, intrigue, spies, new friends, new world and discoveries. Overall, Lifeblood did not suffer from the YA trilogy syndrome. I felt it was a lot better than the first book, in plot, character growth and swoon worthy romance. Now, the wait starts for Everlife, the last book in the series, to be published next year.

Had anyone told Alice Bell that her entire life would change course between one heartbeat and the next, she would have laughed. From blissful to tragic, innocent to ruined? But that's all it took.

A device that reports forbidden thoughts. Queen Coriane, first wife of King Tiberias, keeps a secret diary - how else can she ensure that no one at the palace will use her thoughts against her? Coriane recounts her heady courtship with the crown prince, the birth of a new prince, Cal, and the potentially deadly challenges that lie ahead for her in royal life.

She could save the world - or destroy it. Sixteen-year-old Evangeline 'Evie' Greene leads a charmed life, until she begins experiencing horrifying hallucinations.

America in is beset with mass inequality, poverty, and increasingly large numbers of the poor. A fractured and divided America ushers in an authoritarian government that promises to solve all these problems in one stroke with a radical solution. It is the bane of year-old Robin Sylvone's existence. Under the system, millions of poor families have their children taken and given to the rich. As a single teen mother, Robin fell within the scope of the scheme and lost her baby two years ago. On a planet where violence and vengeance rule, in a galaxy where some are favored by fate, everyone develops a current gift, a unique power meant to shape the future.

While most benefit from their current gifts, Akos and Cyra do not - their gifts make them vulnerable to others' control. Can they reclaim their gifts, their fates, and their lives and reset the balance of power in this world? In Minatsol, being a dweller means that you are literally no better than dirt. In fact, dirt might actually be more useful than Willa.

Her life will be one of servitude to the sols, the magic-blessed beings who could one day be chosen to become gods. At least her outer village is far removed from the cities of the sols, and she won't ever be forced to present herself to them Until one small mistake changes everything, and Willa is awarded a position to serve at Blesswood, the top sol academy in the world - a position that she definitely did not earn. There will come a day when love will mark you as a traitor. In a society where emotions are nothing and function is everything, Avlyn Lark is just trying to blend in.

She's lucky to be alive, unlike her twin brother Ben who died when they were four. And she's lucky to have been taken from her biological parents and assigned to a Level Two family. But mastering her emotions? That's a problem, especially when a rebel bomb blows up a building right in front of her. Then on Configuration Day, Avlyn's official transition to adulthood, she starts seeing strange visions. And instead of being placed with a low-level tech company where she could hide away, she's hired by Genesis Technologies, the government firm that monitors every citizen.

Now, instead of blending in, Avlyn fears she'll be exposed for what she really is. They call her Traitor Kate. Cast out of the nobility, Kate now works for the royal courier service. Only the most skilled ride for the Relay and only the fastest survive, for when night falls, the drakes - deadly flightless dragons - come out to hunt. Fortunately, Kate has a secret edge: She is a wilder, born with forbidden magic that allows her to influence the minds of animals. With her last living breath, Tenley "Ten" Lockwood made her choice and picked her realm in the Everlife.

Now, as the war between Troika and Myriad rages, she must face the consequences. Because Ten possesses a rare supernatural ability to absorb and share light, the Powers That Be have the highest expectations for her future - and the enemy wants her neutralized. Fighting to save her Secondlife, she must learn about her realm from the ground up while launching her first mission: convincing a select group of humans to join her side before they die. No pressure, right? But Ten's competition is Killian, the boy she can't forget - the one who gave up everything for her happiness.

He has only one shot at redemption: beating Ten at a game she's never even played.

Oh no, there's been an error

As their throw-downs heat up, so do their undeniable feelings, and soon Ten will have to make another choice: love or victory. I listened to both books in thus series and my only disappointment is that I have to wait for the next installment! I'm an adult but I enjoy a lot of the YA novels. It embraces a change from starting off 1 way then changing to become a better person. The fight for the soul of Tenley Ten Lockwood is how the story begins.

There's a 1st life, a second life then a third in The Rest. Tenley falls for bad boy Killian Flynn. The storyline between the two is one of the best in YA I've come across. The narration is top notch! Definitely a fantastic story and I highly recommend it! Honestly one of my favorite books this year. The narrators voice is perfect for how grinding and terrible this book is. The world building and ideas for the Ever life is incredibly interesting, which is why I stuck through , but at some points it's just soft porn for teens, compete with tongue thrusting in detail. This book consists mostly whining and dreaming how the baddest boy loves her and how much she misses him and how amazing he is and how great he is and how he smells like her favourite things ECT ECT ECT.
