Happy New year, my first blog tour review of the year is for Blood, Metal, Bone by Lindsay Cummings and it’s a delight to be sharing it with you. Massive thanks to HQ stories for the opportunity and review copy via NetGalley.
About the book
Blood, Metal, Bone is available to purchase now – Harper Collins / Bookshop / Book Depository / Amazon
Well I have to say Blood, Metal, Bone was a real surprise. Going by the description of the book I had no idea that this story would include sci-fi and I’m glad because I probably wouldn’t have picked it up to be honest.
I’m not the biggest fan of sci-fi but I’m pleased to say that it worked really well in this story and although I did prefer reading the more fantasy side it was still gripping.
I loved the world building in Blood, Metal, Bone, it isn’t over powering but gives you enough to visualise. Whether I was with Senora riding through the desert on horseback wielding a sword or with Karr the smuggler somewhere up in space the images formed easily in my mind which I love.
We’re told the story of Senora and the story of Karr and as I was reading I wasn’t sure how they’d connect but they peiced together perfectly. I had real trouble putting this book down, some parts I could see coming, others had me stunned and I was swiping those pages desperate to see what was coming next.
I liked the characters in the book, you get to know the two main characters fairly well, they have a back story but some of the others were and still are a bit of mystery. At first I really wanted to know more about them but as the story unfolded it didn’t seem to matter as much as I was just so caught up in what was happening.
This is the first book I’ve read by Lindsay Cummings and I really like her writing style, it was easy to read even if it was in part a genre I’m not comfortable reading. Those parts didn’t feel like a struggle at all.
Blood, Metal, Bone is a fast paced, gripping story. It’s unique and one I will definitely recommend.
