This was my favourite book out of the three books in the Obsidian Heart trilogy and it had a lot to do with it being set in the Victorian era rather than the present day. The first book was primarily Alex Locke running around trying to get his bearing as his life fell apart after his daughter is abducted. In this book, he’s still chasing his tail a bit as he’s coming to terms with what strange and supernatural creatures really exist in the world. However, we see him come into his own as he starts to make plans and start to work things out.
Unfortunately, I also began to start to work things out and piece things together which meant that by the end of The Society of Blood I had worked out most of the trilogy’s overall plot. It didn’t stop the book itself from being enjoyable, but for me, it did affect my feelings toward the final book.
Trigger Warnings – There is a lot of child abuse, especially involving horrific experiments on children including the forced amputation of limbs.
