    A captivating end to a wonderful duology!

    I received a free copy of this book with the option of posting a review. A captivating end to a duology that explores Violet, an intriguing and elusive protagonist, and Caleb, a non-Blood who has been cast aside by humanity. Violet has ended up being one of my favorite characters in the Bad Bloods series. She's a bit like Storm from the X-Men; nobody really knows how old she is (but she's definitely one of the oldest), her origin story is unclear, and the extent of her abilities has yet to be discovered. I have really enjoyed watching how Thompson developed Violet's character, but I also felt a little emotionally distant from the plot itself. I think the reason why this emotional disconnect occurred is due to the focus on some of the side characters who didn't really have any backstories. To me, it's a bit like a film director taking the focus away from the main characters to focus on extras who I don't know anything about. Even though I felt emotionally distant from the story, I still loved Thompson's imaginative and realistic writing in this book. The political intrigue and the social commentary that I enjoyed in the previous books were still present, and the twists that Thompson included in the plot made it exciting to read. One especially compelling twist was the ending. While not my favorite in the series, I still enjoyed reading July Lightning. It wouldn't hurt my feelings if Thompson decided to share a more in-depth exploration of Violet's character in the future, and I'd be thrilled if more books were added to the Bad Bloods series.
