Thank you to YA Bound Book Tours and author Sasha Hibbs for providing me with a copy of this in exchange for an honest review Find this review andon my blog The Rest Is Still Unwritten Black Abaddon is the second book in the Vulcan Legacies series by Sasha Hibbs and is in my opinion even better than the first Rife in danger and darkness, Black Abaddon is an addictive and heart pounding story withshocking twists than you ll know what to do with I have to say, Black Abaddon blew me away and I thoroughly enjoyed this bookso than even the first instalment Black Amaranth was a lot about learning about the world and meeting the characters Hibbs focused a lot about introducing her beings and the histories of the characters, whereas in Black Abaddon, we re forced to witness the evolution of some of the characters as the storyline steadily progressed At this point in time I really feel like I know the characters and Hibbs only enhances this as she writes some big developments into her storyline involving our main character Ally and those around her Personally I really like all the characters in this book, admittedly somethan others, but regardless I think each brings something very different but intense to the character dynamic within the story The differences between all the characters, from their species to their personalities, to their relationships, are something I find very interesting in this series Everyone from our main character Ally to Jessica, Dave, Eli, Lucy, Brandi, Uncle Argyle, Parthenia, Elizabeth, the gypsies, the Nashoba and especially Marik in Black Abaddon all managed to have an effect on me I m invested in all their relationships and lives Even those we re just meeting, like Mariah and the Nosforatu Nation intrigue me and those who aren t what we first thought like Marik have me needing to knowAt the end of Black Amaranth, Ally suffered a tremendous loss and is still reeling from this in Black Abaddon She s in pain and we see a great deal of agony from Ally in this book Heartbroken and struggling to go on, Ally really struggles with her self belief in this book Hibbs still continues to keep us on our toes, as Ally s destiny is still unknown and revelation after revelation changing what we know about her and what she s meant to do Relationships between some characters change, including the one between Ally and Marik He may have been the big evil in the previous book, but Sasha Hibbs pulls a rabbit out of her hat with him and manages to explore him with some shocking revelations that will change the way Ally, and we see him in Black Abaddon Honestly, this guy just breaks my heart I m so head over heels for him and completely absorbed in his own story Marik is a very layered character He s made mistakes, but everything he ever did was for his family and those he loves he was used by a great evil, and is now unable to move on I m going to be honest here I never felt Ally and Michael s relationship in the first book I wanted to, but I didn t I feel for Marik though and the way he feels for Ally He truly cares about her and it saddens me that she doesn t quite feel the same She loves him, but not as deeply as he cares for her I do wonder what Hibbs has in store for their relationship I m not really a fan of any love triangles, especially when a heroine seems set on one person, but I do actually love Marik I think he deserves some happiness Black Abaddon races towards a jaw dropping conclusion that is in no way expected Honestly, I m shell shocked by how the novel has concluded Hibbs throws in some unexpected developments, but noneso than the final chapter Believe me Black Abaddon will have you begging for I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest

fall flat That is not the case with this one I actually enjoyed itthan the first book This will be a rather short review because I don t want to give away any of the plot.The story picks up right from the rather explosive ending of the first book Ally is in a bad place emotionally in the aftermath of her failed test She s ridden with guilt and has lost hope which creates a rather somber tone One thing I really liked was how Ally grew emotionally throughout the story She s a much stronger character by the end than she was at the beginning.The secondary characters were also amazing and all very important to the story line I just love all of the characters So, I cried at times while reading keep tissues nearby just in case I really lost track of time while reading this book The action was nonstop so there was no good place to stop reading When the phone rang, I cursed the caller for pulling me from the story Don t expect too many answers in this second book In fact I think I havequestions now than I did when I started reading The ending was amazing, surprising, and left me clamoring for the third book I hope you re writing fast Ms Hibbs I highly recommend Black Abaddon to everyone high school and up who enjoys an immersive paranormal read This is not a standalone novel, so be sure to pick up Black Amaranth and read it first I m adding this one to my Goodreads favorites

all of the plot twists, as there were quite a few Perhaps scaling back on the number of characters would be helpful in the third installment of this series The ending however, is one of the best I ve read in a long time And I read a lot I was totally taken by surprise and it was so very enjoyable You ll find yourself sighing because Book 3 isn t out yet I don t want to give anything away, but I m super intrigued to see where Ms Hibbs takes this story Dark and Light battle it out for sure, but she s crafted a unique take on an age old story that you don t want to miss It can be tricky, reviewing the second book of what is currently a trilogy I have to be careful here When I was last reading Sasha Hibbs, I found myself pulverized by a brutal and powerful ending that I don t want to spoil in the review of its sequel However, this much can be said from the get go the first book, BLACK AMARANTH, left our hero Ally in a very difficult place Apart from the threat that she believes she represents to the world and who can blame her she now has to deal with he It can be tricky, reviewing the second book of what is currently a trilogy I have to be careful here When I was last reading Sasha Hibbs, I found myself pulverized by a brutal and powerful ending that I don t want to spoil in the review of its sequel However, this much can be said from the get go the first book, BLACK AMARANTH, left our hero Ally in a very difficult place Apart from the threat that she believes she represents to the world and who can blame her she now has to deal with heartbreak, hatred, remorse, guilt, and the seeming loss of the her own powers, powers which she only recently began to understand.But because this IS Ally we re talking about, we keep reading.And so we come to BLACK ABADDON, Book 2 of the Vulcan Legacies And the bad news, if none of the above qualifies as such, is that the Devourer is far from done with his wicked machinations In a dark fantasy by Sasha Hibbs, the reader can expect that the action will not slow down for the emotional havoc previous catastrophes have wrought No, the story steams forward with the inexorable lack of pity of a train without brakes, even as we experience the trauma with Ally To do this and make a reader believe it, especially with a young protagonist, is a nice trick, and a hallmark of Hibbs s talent.We can be encouraged by her God character, represented here in Ally s interview with The Authority, but it s a short respite All too soon in a literal sense dramatically, it s lots of fun , we have to stand alongside Ally for a vampiric blood trial, where the accused s actions are revealed in a public and potentially fatal ritual The revelations draw sympathy towards a character neither Ally nor the reader would have expected to empathize with More revelations follow Remember Dave and Jessica from the first book Quite often, they seemed like they were hanging on the coattails of other characters mostly along for the ride, and to develop the rapport between young characters that was, and remains, a story about kids who are far, far over their own heads But no they re embroiled in it fardirectly than they ever expected.See how careful I m being I can t give this stuff away I stand by what I said in the first review If there s anything difficult in the midst of all this pathos and adventure, it s that you ll sometimes have to review your notes to keep up The story is relentless, and although Sasha Hibbs has a clear handle on the reigns, some of us have to work a little to keep up.It s worth it, though Very, very worth it BLACK ABADDON, by Sasha Hibbs, isthan a dark, swirling cauldron of nightmare fantasy It s a character study on survivors guilt, and the continuation of a multi layered epic that sometimes unfolds like a flower and other times spirals out ahead of you like a vine racing out to strangle a loved one I read Black Abaddon in one day The first one, Black Amaranth, was great, the second book in the Black series was even better The story goes in all kinds of crazy directions, twists and turns making it impossible to stop I LOVE this series Waiting on the third. The StoryAlly has learned a few lessons, first of which was love hurts Her love hurtsthan most, as she didn t realise she even had him and already he was gone After Michael sacrificed himself for her, Ally was thrust into another of her mother s memories She believed this was in order for her to change the past, to start back at the beginning She was wrong The beginning she thought she was fixing was not at all what was needed, and now her mother has forced her back into present day The StoryAlly has learned a few lessons, first of which was love hurts Her love hurtsthan most, as she didn t realise she even had him and already he was gone After Michael sacrificed himself for her, Ally was thrust into another of her mother s memories She believed this was in order for her to change the past, to start back at the beginning She was wrong The beginning she thought she was fixing was not at all what was needed, and now her mother has forced her back into present day, having taken all of her away immortality, powers, wings and all Now, she truly must start back at the beginning, the beginning of her Angel of Death transformation She soon learns that her journey has cycles, she must weather the storm in this unforgiving winter of her life before she can start anew, with any hope of saving the world from evil and darkness However, there is a catch Love Ally finds herself in a world of turmoil, trouble and new emotions She runs off with the one man she thought never possible and soon finds herself falling for him, completely But all is not what it seems Soon a message starts to appear, one that is reflected on the one who is coming for herand it is not the man she thinks Can Ally get through this desperate time Will she still save the world Can love help her through her winter And just what or who is Abaddon What I ThoughtWow I knew, after reading the first book, Black Amaranth, that Sasha Hibbs was a fantastic author The story that was woven together was both addicting and exciting I couldn t wait to pick up the second book and get as absorbed in the extension of Ally s world I was not let down The second installment is fantastic Rather than just a sense of urgency and coming of age, we find ourselves deep in a story of sorrow, reconciliation and the search for ones self Ally has become a beacon of strength, while those around her fight amongst themselves Yes, she is broken and full of sorrow for losing the love of her life Yes, she is filled with fear and regret, having made the wrong decision and having lost her abilities However, she has and unrivalled inner strength, and makes the choice to forge ahead, aiming for what she sees as the best option for saving the world I love the characters in this second book They hold true to their original characters, except for those who are new to this book They have increased depth and emotion, and we find ourselves bonding evenwith them I like the twists and turns in the story, be it unexpected love or the return of something to Ally never saw coming All of these surprises are unexpected, but easily fit in the story, and become something you want for Ally The pace of the second book is perfect It still moves quickly, to keep that sense of urgency, fear and turmoil, but still moves slowly enough to develop the next steps in this game OVERALL I am highly impressed with this book It has depth, great characters and pace and is a truly gripping book I cannot wait to read the third book Black Atonement, and find myself hoping it is not the final book, as I don t know what I ll do when I don t have any Ally to read about I would highly recommend this book from YA Teen to Adults, as it has something for all ages It is a book that you truly cannot put down 4.5 sreview

struggling because she is now the Angel of Death and failed her test, therefore she failed everyone including Michael The Devourer is still on the loose and everyone must come together to save the

including Michael The Devourer is still on the loose and everyone must come together to save the world from the evil that is coming When Mariah, the Princess of the Nosferatu turns up looking for her brother Marik long lost brother Michael, a surprising alliance is on the horizon and it looks like Ally will have to unite everyone for the battle to come It soon becomes clear that whilst everyone is scrambling to build alliances, the Devourer is also building an army and some of our favourites are in for a shock when we find out who he has sided with be prepared for anything as nothing and no one is safe As I mentioned above, Ally is a sad figure in this, she seems to have lost hope as she struggles with guilt, grief and the knowledge that everyone around her is at risk Her powers are evolving and seemingly bestowed from up high but she s struggling and finding it hard to deal with things Her feelings are put to the test again but I m hoping the gutsy, determined fighter will be back soon, we get a glimpse toward the ending but we needThis book was very sombre and had a very sad feel because of the ending of book one The threat is still very palpable urgent but the beginning very much focussed on the aftermath of book one, it was still filled with a lot of information and all of the characters dealing with their own feelings about what happened though Things begin to look up as the start of some alliances are forged and the group is pulled together by mystical forces but don t expect things to get any better, get the tissues ready because there will be tears and heartbreak which is going to change a LOT of lives I mentioned in my review of book one that the secondary characters are just as important and their stories are just as interesting, this doesn t change here because not only is Ally going through turmoil but everyone else is too and there is no let up in the pain sacrifice department because everyone will lose something in this but that just makes you route for them all the , I want them to succeed, I want them to band together, I want them all to find their soul mate and I need them all to get a HEA Further into the book Ally seems to take charge of herself, making a few realisations and coming to some conclusions which leads the story to take on a run and chase feel as Ally starts to flee from her troubles and it seems like the devourer will never stop hunting her which definitely adds to the excitement of the book and leads to an absolutely amazing ending that really has the wow factor and leaves me desperate for book 3 just brilliant I am without a doubt absolutely speechless The book was just that good FIRST, before I go on let me say that this review was a loooonnggg time coming but due to a series of unforeseen events and an ever

that this review was a loooonnggg time coming but due to a series of unforeseen events and an ever growing list of reviews that needed to be posted by a certain date and lots of paperbacks that were sent my way before this novel, I was left with no other option but to bid my time I ve been anxious to read it and it along with one other book has been sitting on the dresser right next to my desk for months And I do mean months So I apologize to not only you guys who read my reviews but to the ever talented Ms Hibbs.Now without further ado by review The story picks up literally right where the last one ended With a heartbroken Ally and thrusts you right back into to the tearful and unfair world that this ensemble has to endure Its an emotional roller coaster full of surprises and couple of unfortunate mishaps and a lots of tugging at the heart strings but this book is GOLDEN Its a relatively short read and didn t take me as long even tho they are roughly the same length as the first to get through But I believe that hadto do with my unwillingness to put the book down.The cover is as you can see very similar to the first but a hell of a lot darker which fits the mood of this book, and from what I gather a reoccurring theme to the series I happen to love when a series does that so kudos Also, its worth noting that while the first book is packed with details and a bit on the slow side this books was mostly fast paced and in your face rhyme not intended there was a lot of I knew it moments but the were woven into the story so beautifully I especially enjoyed the importance of the name of this book and it was a foreshadowing of whats to come.Read the full review here
