Conspiracy of Blood and Smoke

Conspiracy of Blood and Smoke - Anne Blankman

I really liked the story, the setting, the atmosphere, the mystery, the intrigue, the betrayals, the friendships and the bravery exhibited by our main characters throughout it all. The blend of fact and fiction is very impressive and must be commended. Probably my favorite part of the book was the Author's Note, where Blankman explains what's real and what isn't. Unfortunately, for whatever reason, I didn't connect with the characters emotionally this time around like I should have, and my opinion of the book suffered for it.

So it's a good book, excellently written and impeccably researched, but it simply wasn't doing anything for me.
