    Prepare yourself for an emotional ride!

    There are times when I read a sequel and I find it a tad predictable; however, this sequel has some incredible and unpredictable twists and turns. For instance, after reading the first book in the series, November Rain, I thought that the antipathy between Robert and Daniel was caused by an ethical disagreement or some sort of Alpha male dynamic. I was wrong. Thompson reveals what happened between the two flock leaders in the past, and it is mind-blowing! Thompson's timing in this book is impeccable. I was at the point where I felt like I knew most of the characters and was drawn to a few of them, then the war takes a turn for the worst and some of those characters were killed. Heart-wrenching for sure, but it takes quite a bit of talent to create characters that readers are drawn to and then to time the loss of the characters in such a way that compels readers to continue reading to see what the outcome is. I found the political intrigue captivating, but not overly complex. It's a fine line to walk because an author must keep the target audience in mind while writing it. If it's too simple, it can come across as the author talking down to the target audience; too complex, and the book ends up boring the target audience. I thought Thompson did a fantastic job of keeping her target audience in mind. The political intrigue is complex, but it is explained in simple enough terms that her audience can relate to it. You'd think with a war being waged that there would be a lot of gore, but Thompson manages to convey the sheer number of lives lost and the gravity of the situation while omitting the gore. Don't get me wrong... It's a clean book, but Thompson demonstrates how "clean" doesn't always equate to rainbows, cute puppies, and happily-ever-afters by creating an urban novel that doesn't contain the explicit language and violence that the genre is known for. November Snow is a must-have for a clean teen/YA library. If you enjoyed books like The Hunger Games, Divergent, and The Mortal Instruments, I think you'll enjoy November Snow and the Bad Bloods series.
