***THIS IS BOOK 2! Book I was on Netgalley previously.
Trapped in a world of deception, my sanity rests with the love of Ryker Valant and our renegade friends.
Six months of scouring the ocean floor in a rebel ship fleeing our homeland, delivers us to a possible alliance with the opportunistic European Council.
Our only hope is to utilize our forbidden gifts to free our people from slavery, proving our worth.
But when a trusted ally turns traitor and a new breed of the queen’s weaponry is revealed, I’m forced to face the terror of my past to save our crumbling future.

Action packed, sexy, fun, engaging and emotional adventure filled with danger, suspense and undeniable passion… an edge of your seat read from beginning to end and so hard to put down. Really enjoyed the charters I got to know on this journey.
This was a great book that hooked me right from the beginning of the story! Raven does a great job with world building in this book as well as creating complex characters that you're instantly curious about. This book was definitely a page turner that featured great characters, intriguing storylines, action packed scenes, and some good old fantasy!
The cover of this book is so cool & definitely one of my favourite parts of it! I can't wait to get more of Raven's works now that I'm immersed in this book! Of Blood and Betrayal is definitely a book to look out for because you're not going to want to miss this story!
Thank you NetGalley for an eArc of this book in exchange for an honest review!
Thank you NetGalley for a eCopy of this book to review
Having not read the first book in the series I struggled a little with the back story, who the different characters were and what the different beings were. however, I did enjoy the story of how Raven made it to a place of safety and the difficulties she faced along the way with her friends. It did get a little confusing in places and the it was a little slow at times. Overall it was a good fantasy adventure
I loved this. The second installment of this series was just as amazing as the first. Seeing their love blossom more and more was fantastic. Seeing they fight for their freedom and fighting for their friends and the people they loved, I loved that. There were some twists and I liked them all. It ended in a cliffhanger and I'm dying to know what happens next. I need the next book so freaking bad
I got about 25 percent in and thought “something is missing here” and there was… book 1. I’m an imbecile and didn’t realize or see it in description (though I am pretty sure it was edited to add that after I received) what I did read was VERY promising, promising enough that I bought book 1 and will come back to book 2. When I do so I will edit this review with my thoughts. Thank you so much for the arc and I am incredibly sorry I missed the “book 2” in description.
4/5 stars! I was drawn to this book because of its interesting cover and the fact that I enjoy a good fantasy romance. I hadn't realized this was book 2 in the series, so it took a little time to fill in the blanks from that story, but overall it still worked for me. Raven experienced so much growth during the story and her and Ryker's romance was just the right level of spicy.
I received an advance review copy for free through NetGalley, and I am leaving this review voluntarily
Thank you SO MUCH to NetGalley's Author Collective 20 for allowing me to read the second book in the Broken Bonds series prior to publication - I found the first book the same way, and as soon as I saw there was a sequel, I KNEW I had to read it. And let me tell you, I was NOT disappointed.
I don't know how Raven More managed to ratchet up the tension, anticipation, and total need to find out what happens next from Of Blood and Crowns to the amazing ride that is Of Blood and Betrayal, but oh my goodness, did she ever succeed.
The sequel surpassed my wildest expectations, keeping me on the edge of my seat from the first page to the last - meaning that I ABSOLUTELY MUST have the next book to find out what happens!
I am completely hooked on this series. The characters are believable and realistic, the situations are relatable to the point where you're feeling the emotions as if you're in the room with the main characters, and each victory or defeat is felt as if the reader was personally involved in the rebellion.
"Of Blood and Betrayal" is the perfect merger of Collins' "Hunger Games" series and Aveyard's "Red Queen." I cannot wait to find out what happens next.
