    A very promising first book in the series!

    I bought a print copy of this book from the author at a convention, and decided to leave a review. I loved this book! It's an unlikely combination of gritty and clean that is executed beautifully. The action starts at the beginning of the book, and the plot moves forward quickly as readers discover what's going on from Serena's and Daniel's points of view. I liked how Thompson managed to establish what was going on without detracting from the plot's quick pace. The dystopian world is immersive and complex with political intrigue outside of, and within, the bad bloods' ranks. The characters are interesting; many are children who possess wisdom beyond their years because many of them were thrown out of their homes, and lived on the streets before they were taken in by factions called "flocks." I think that the characters are fairly well-developed, and I get the feeling that Thompson will reveal more about Serena and Daniel as the series progresses. What is not revealed is the origin of the bad bloods; are the abilities a natural evolutionary step, like the X-Men, or is the mutation caused by an event in the past that exposed people to a mutagen? I was a bit disappointed that this wasn't revealed; however, even the characters seem to be unsure of how bad bloods came to be, but Thompson does hint that more of the bad bloods' origin story will be revealed as the series develops. November Rain is a promising first book of the Bad Bloods series; it provides readers with enough information to get hooked while offering hints at what's to come. A fantastic dystopian, young adult novel for fans of the genre!
