Torment (Bloodlines #2) by Lindsay Anne Kendal

Synopsis: Keira has been through Hell, literally….. But now she’s back, and stronger than ever!

In this second gripping installment of the Bloodlines trilogy Keira and her friends – Lily, Lucian, Tyler, Jake and Danny – continue to try and understand their elemental powers, and protect themselves from their enemies, whose ultimate goal is to destroy them.

This time, the stakes are higher – what seems to be a demon rebellion has broken out in hell and the Earth is plunged into chaos. Their problem is, no one – not even Lucifer himself – knows who the rebel leader is. It seems only Keira, her frightened but determined friends, and a new ally – a demon named Eligos – can find out who this person or thing is, why they are suddenly causing so much bloodshed, pain and upset for everyone, and destroy them.

Bloody awesome battles, amazing feats of magic, and a stronger-than-death passion, make for an intoxicating, unforgettable read in this powerfully imagined fantasy

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 more depth and had developed the characters well. Some of the characters changes surprised me!

One of my favorite parts of Torment was Lindsay’s depiction of hell. Though I do not believe in Lindsay’s version of hell, I liked the concept and creativity of it. Her version of hell was unique and was interesting.

The plot was captivating as well! Full of intense battles and magical elements, you will not be disappointed. However, there were a few slow parts between fights.

Finally, I must talk about the ending. Lindsay left us on a cliffhanger that has me dying to read the next book! The last part of the book went extremely fast and then just ended. I NEED ANSWERS!

Overall, I love this book and highly recommend it!
