Bloody Mad picks up right where book 1 left off. Much like the first book, a significant chunk of it is world-building and setup as it adds new characters and lore to the series. I honestly don’t mind all the setup though. Maybe I will on future listens when I already know all of this. But I’m completely hooked.
I learned after reviewing the first book that this is apparently part of a literary universe and I couldn’t be more excited. It’s not just the story that I like, it’s the characters and I already have some of the other in-universe books as review copies. It’s rare that the appeal of a story for me is the characters. But in this instance, it’s a combo of characters, story, and lore. Everything about it is interesting and I can’t wait to read (or listen) to book 3. This is a series I’m likely going to be picking up physical copies for.
The narrator does a wonderful job providing voices and acting out lines. She has a real talent for this profession.
