Bad blood or human, a city will burn, snow will fall, and all will be united by catastrophic secrets and irrevocable tragedy.
What both books in this series did was make me realize was how messed up that society was. While I said the first book reminded me of X-Men, it's November Snow that reminded me a lot of The Hunger Games. Some of the elements of society are present in its governmental structure, but it was still a quite original read, and one I recommend for fans of both. My rating for the first book was 4/5 Platypires, but Bad Bloods: November Snow gets a 5/5 platypires.
