The Blood of Eden series by Julie Kagawa is a visual journey. Kagawa has a flair for constructing a scene so well, you can just imagine yourself there. Even more, none of that is inessential. I see many authors get lost in the details of the surroundings, but Kagawa? Hats off to you. She manages to keep the story going while providing us a rich feel of the place. The world-building is flawless and the characters are not one-dimensional. Take for example, Jackal. In the last book, Immortal Rules, we see him as a ruthless king of the raiders. Here, we get to see a whole another side of him. He is still the raider king but the banter between him and Allison? It was a joy to read. Overall, this book deserves each and every star.
