Today is my stop on the blog tour for On Holy Ground and I am here today with a review of this fantastic book!
Saving the world was just the start.
In The Devil’s Poetry, Callie gambled with her life to stop a war. And she won. But now the game has changed. A Reader who understands the Book’s magic is either a savior or a curse – what she can’t be is free. When Callie stranded in the US, hunted and penniless, she desperately needs allies. But whose agenda can she trust? She must re-evaluate everything she knows, and find a way to escape, or die trying. Don’t miss the riveting sequel to The Devil’s Poetry.
After finishing The Devil’s Poetry, I was itching to get my hands on the On Holy Ground. There is something so pulling about Louise Cole’s writing. It sucks you into the story and makes you yearn for more. This was especially true during On Holy Ground. Right from the very first sentence, my heart rate increased and I had to continue reading. There was absolutely no way I could stop reading before I got to the end of the book. Once again, Louise Cole has written a fantastic book that you really do not want to miss out on.
One of the things I find really wonderful about Louise‘s books is the way that the narration flips between different characters throughout the story, which not only gives you a more rounded view of everything going on but really builds up the tension inside the book. The main genre of this book is definitely fantasy, whereby a book can save the world and break it at the same time, but it also has brilliant characteristics of a thriller too. With lots of different things going on at the same time and everyone having different agendas, it is easy to see how she manages to create such an intense and ultimately page-turning novel that is incredibly hard to put down.
Once again, Callie is a strong character who really pulls the story along. I felt for her throughout a lot of the book and was so invested in her story and everything that was going on around her. I had to know what was happening and where everything was headed. Fortunately, Louise Cole did not disappoint. She has written a very strong and entertaining sequel to her first book and I know that I am intrinsically hooked on her writing now. I will definitely be reading every single book that she writes from now on. Moreover, I would also highly recommend this series so if you haven’t had a chance to read it yet, make sure you do that soon!
A fast-paced, heart-racing, intense sequel that is an absolutely stunning read that you do not want to miss out on.
