“LIFEBLOOD is another wonderful installment to the series.”
~ Under the Covers

LIFEBLOOD is the second book in the Everlife series by Gena Showalter. I would highly suggest reading this series in order as the first book kind of ends on a bit of a cliffie. Some answers are present in this book but mostly, Showalter raises more questions and puts Ten, our heroine, in some very disastrous situations. One of my favorite parts of the first book was Ten. She’s very independent and fun, but in this book, I think there was a bit of a change in her character. I’m not sure that she’s as fiery as she was in the first book, but that might just be because now she knows she’s in and over her head and must act a bit more rationally.

In terms of romance, there’s an interesting one here. I wondered what was going to come from it because really, the first book only introduced them and didn’t explore it as much as I wanted. I still don’t know where Showalter is going with it, but I am intrigued by Ten and Killian’s dynamic. I really like him. There’s a complexity to his character that I find intriguing. We never really know where his thoughts are or what he’s going to do next and I think that keeps the readers on their toes when he’s around.

Again, Showalter continues to build her world from the ground up and I really like the way she’s done it. She doesn’t reveal everything all at once and that’s a good sign. If she did, I think it would bore readers and it probably wouldn’t be as good as it is now. LIFEBLOOD is another wonderful installment to the series.

I’m an obsessive makeup junkie and a compulsive reader. I like to call Under the Covers Book Blog my stomping ground, but when I’m not talking about books with my girls, I write New Adult Dystopian and Contemporary Romance under the pen name Ana Jolene ( I also work as a virtual assistant for authors. You also can find me as a reviewer and columnist for

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.

When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
