She’s done it again! I started reading this thinking “Is it possible that she wrote such an amazing and engaging world or did I just imagine that while reading the first book?” Well, I can honestly say now that if I wasn’t so scared of Sang, I would want to visit and stay there for a while. At the very least, I would want to read about it for as long as I could.
This short story was just enough of a teaser into the world of Blud and Sang, enough to keep us craving more and to make the wait for book two more bearable. I find it amazing that the author was able to tell the story of a character that was not a main concern before, Mr. Murdoch, and sucking me into the story from the very beginning.
While working together, the two fugitives happen to fall in love. Or in lust at the very least. The connection between Madam Morpho and Mr. Murdoch was instant and believable. The slow build up of their relationship, as slow as a short story allows, was also perfect. And we even got some smexy in for good measure. Perfect!
All the magic of the Blud series continues to flow through the pages of THE MYSTERIOUS MADAM MORPHO. Yes I’m addicted, I want to know more, I want to see more. I want to know all about the different species and about this world because it’s so different and unique. The author is such a talented storyteller that I can’t help but to be captivated. That or completely scared of the bludbadgers. Eeeeekkkkkkk Is it April yet??
