The Young Elites by Marie Lu meets Renegades by Marissa Meyer in this action-packed dystopian fantasy series that has readers calling it “addictive” like The Hunger Games and Divergent.

Her very existence is a crime… Seventeen-year-old Serena isn't human. She’s a bad blood, and in the politically corrupt city of Vendona, bad bloods aren’t allowed to live. When Serena is aided in an escape moments before her execution, a revolution is sparked. While on the run, she’s forced to put her trust in a man she knows little about.

Daniel will do anything to stop the twelve-year war that has killed so many of his own. When Serena falls into his life, he sees the opportunity to fight back and stop the eradication of all bad bloods. But there’s more to Serena than meets the eye. They share a connection to his tragic and mysterious past, and the two of them united together might just be Vendona’s only hope.

United or not, a city will fight, rain will fall, and all will be threatened by star-crossed love and political corruption.


"I loved this book! It's an unlikely combination of gritty and clean that is executed beautifully." - On My Kindle 
"A powerful work of art. In November Rain, Thompson invites us into a world of secrecy, murder, and unlikely friendships that are bound to make your head spin with wonder." - Lena May Books
"Bad Bloods is a solid work of dystopian YA that will delight any fan of the genre. It also includes an angle that is too often overlooked by other authors in the category." - Truth About Books
"This is one of those 'you can't put it down' books. Thompson builds the tension of the election and its importance slowly and with care. She develops her characters fully and with great attention to detail. She is a masterful storyteller." - The Bookie Monster

    Characters Serena is an interesting girl who has clearly had to grow up too quickly in order to survive. Her experiences as a prisoner changed her and she is torn between her responsibilities and learning more about Daniel. Daniel seems to be the typical sort of guy who wants to help everyone even if it is dangerous. He has a secret though, which makes his character feel quite elusive. There are a lot of characters in this book and they are mentioned right from the start. I found it difficult to keep up with everyone and what they could do. I feel as though this also hindered my ability to form connections with the main characters. I would have liked a little more depth with them. Plot The set up of this story kept me interested and I was eager to see what was going to happen. It is a slow paced story and not a lot happens, but I enjoyed the trickle of information. I was taken by surprise when the book just ended though. It is only book 1 in a series, and I expected there to be unanswered questions, but it seemed like an odd place to finish. World I liked the idea of the world and all the different abilities. I was keen to learn what each character could do and they seem to have flaws in their abilities as well, which makes them more realistic. I found the harsh reality for the Bad Bloods quite devastating when I really thought about it. The government were sentencing children to death and parents were quick to abandon their own children. Writing This is another well written book by Shannon A. Thompson, and it was an easy read. I do not recall coming across any typos and the descriptions were easy to understand. Overall I struggled to come up with a rating for this book because I feel as though I have only read half of it. It does have a lot of potential though, and I definitely want to know what happens next. There was a note at the end that mentioned that Bad Bloods had originally been published as one novel and then taken off the market shortly after. I am curious as to why this happened. I would recommend this book for those who enjoy easy to read YA books.
