However I did say Id see it out since I saw potential in it. I kind of regret it, to be honest. Passionaries continues the story of Lucy, Agnes and Cecelia a few months after their experiences at the Church of the Precious Blood. Despite that they should have been keeping in touch and getting through things together, they havent so much as texted Read more reviews at my blog, Words and Tea Bottles.
Passionaries is the sequel to The Blessed, a book I read last year and reviewed rather… unfavorably. A problem I had with the last book was one that a lot of people seemed to have: the fact that it was hard to tell whether they really were reincarnated saints, or if Sebastian was as mentally ill as suggested and he was just influencing them to believe they were because he had the delusion himself and they happened to share the right names.
For instance, Cecelia actually shreds two men with some kind of whip sword. No mercy. The one thing that I liked about the first book was the sequences with Dr. They were the only thing that I felt was grounded in any sort of reality.
I was hoping it would continue in this book so that there would still be something redeeming about it, if nothing else improved. I thought that this series had nowhere to go but up. Unfortunately I was wrong. All we know is that he used to be a priest, and he defected from religion until he joined the hospital. Yes, saints are supposed to be disbelieved and persecuted, but this goes way too far.
Pretty much all this book does is prove that it could, in fact, get worse. The exact same bad points from the first book are there, and more are piled on. I really wish Hurley had improved. And clearly there are people who enjoyed it.
FEATHERVEIN will be out in 2019
Three lost girls, one mysterious boy. They battle for his heart while he struggles for their souls in this gripping conclusion. This dark, thrilling follow-up to Precious Blood blends the gritty with the miraculous. They watched as Sebastian sacrificed himself for what he believed in, and now they have choices to make of their own. Will the girls trust in their destinies as saints and martyrs and perform the miracles as Sebastian instructed? Or will they lose faith in themselves and each other in his absence?
