Product description


“In Lou’s world she not only finds her voice, but makes men take notice and change their views of women. With so many twists and turns, this book is a must for fans of the first.” (School Library Journal)

“Seductive, steamy, and satisfying.  Mahurin has delivered a fearless and captivating sequel that has me hooked. This is officially one of my favorite series ever.” (Adalyn Grace, New York Times bestselling author of All the Stars and Teeth)

“Decadent and dangerous, Blood & Honey was exactly the book I needed at precisely the right time. The rich cast of characters captivated me, and I can’t wait to see what’s in store next for this merry band of miscreants.” (Reneé Ahdieh, New York Times bestselling author of The Wrath & the Dawn series)

"Blood & Honey grabbed me by the throat. Shining with irreverent humor and brutal heartache, every magical word is rendered beautifully throughout the many twists and harrowing turns. Mahurin delivers a triumphant return to Belterra." (Isabel Ibañez, author of Woven In Moonlight)

“A breathless, breathtaking continuation of the magical world Mahurin has created pits the strength of love against the need to protect those one loves…at any cost.  Would you lose your soul to save someone else’s? Blood & Honey doesn’t just address this question; it slams the reader into the story - and that existential question - in a brilliant, unending roller-coaster ride.”   (Jodi Picoult, New York Times bestselling author of Small Great Things and A Spark of Light)

Praise for Serpent & Dove:
“Drips with intrigue and shadow.” (Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books)

“A brilliant debut, full of everything I love: a sparkling and fully-realized heroine, an intricate and deadly system of magic, and a searing romance that kept me reading long into the night. Serpent & Dove  is an absolute gem of a book.” (Sarah J Maas, #1 New York Times  bestselling author of A Court of Thorns and Roses series)

“Will cast a spell on romance fans.” (Kirkus Reviews)

“Mahurin has taken the witch and witch hunter trope and made it new again. The world-building will draw in readers and Lou’s strong but wistful nature will keep them turning pages.” (School Library Journal) --This text refers to the paperback edition.

4.0 out of 5 stars A little dissapointed with the end of the book
By Ajay Sawant on 15 October 2020
ALERT: few spoilers revealed

Last night I finished BLOOD AND HONEY by Shelby Mahurin. Honestly I loved it as much I did the first book but I am seriously disappointed at the fact that one of my absolute adored character dies and I am seriously expecting he's not.

Do not expect the book to begin with the honeymoon romance phase as it ends otherwise in the first book. After disclosure of Reid's mom now the four companions are on ceaseless escape from Morgane and her coven in the Chateau le Blanc because of her mother's plan to sacrifice Lou, so she would be able to perform a spell that would end the human royal lineage.

The book is their quest on forming allies with the Warewolves and Coco's aunt La Voisin to fight against her mother and the difficulties they face when Morgan's shadow constantly haunts them. Reid will learn his past and his complete family and that will drive him closer to them. The character transformation is clearly seen in these chapters.

The plot throughout the book felt anticlimactic, a little cliche, and somewhat disappointing. I hated the way the Ansel does at end which was shocking. At the same time I hated that no one mourned his death. I also was quite disappointed at Reid's character how he was persistently against using magic even for greater good which seemed stupid.

Overall it was an amazing book and I can't wait to read the next book in the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Part 2 of the trilogy, the hype is real
By Noor. C on 28 September 2020
Blood & Honey, Part- 2 of the Trilogy.

Yes trilogy, it's no longer a duology with B&H ending on a cliffhanger!!
🕊Have you read Serpent & Dove?
Tbh I haven't, yet.

🕊Will I read it?
Probably yess. I have it on kindle but am definitely gna buy the hardback to complete my set & also for it's beautiful cover.

🕊Can Blood & Honey be read as a standalone?
I think yess.
I haven't read Serpent & Dove but was so intrigued by the popularity of S&D and the hype for B&H, that I pre-ordered it and gulped it down as soon as I received it.
It took me max 10 pages to get in tandem with d flow.

📌What did I like abt B&H?
Ohhh I was mesmerized by the cover, it looks so pretty on my shelf!
I loved the true love ❤and the romance (yes you get to devour some) that Lou & Reid shared, it's adorable.
I also loved the mother-daughter tussle that goes on between Lou & Morgane, don't knw y but I enjoyed it.
Annnd obviously I loved the 🧚‍♀️magic!
I also liked the ups and downs, the turmoil, the garnering of strength, making allies, fighting for yourself- for what is right- for your love..
Any mishap, loss saw me in tears & the love between em caused me to relish & adore them both.

My favorite lines are written in the above pic.

The ending was fascinating & although I am not an open ending lover but this time, I am ok with it..Reid loves Lou & so does Lou. What happens next would be enchanting & maybe heartening to see, but I am ready.

Eagerly awaiting the sequel.

Although it's around 500+ pages, but it's not a huge book but handy, medium size one.
Catch the blurb;

After narrowly escaping death at the hands of the Dames Blanches, Lou, Reid, Coco, and Ansel are on the run from coven, kingdom, and church—fugitives with nowhere to hide. To elude the scores of witches and throngs of chasseurs at their heels, Lou and Reid need allies. Strong ones. But protection comes at a price, and the group is forced to embark on separate quests to build their forces. As Lou and Reid try to close the widening rift between them, the dastardly Morgane baits them in a lethal game of cat and mouse that threatens to destroy something worth more than any coven.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good writing and plot explorations but Filler content
By Anukriti chaturvedi on 13 November 2020
This is book 2 in Serpent & Dove Trilogy, which is an ADULT FANTASY SERIES! This series has feminist undertones as well, where women, without any proof are labelled as witches & hanged for it.
Basic gist- Lou is trying to escape her mother, who wants to kill her (talk about mommy issues 😳) with her merry band comprising of Reid, Coco, Ansel, Beau & Madame Labelle. There is also a travelling circus troupe with their own secrets who help Lou and Co.

As not to divulge any spoilers, I'll be making a list of what I enjoyed & what I didn't.

✩ Pros:

🍁 Same compulsive writing which kept me hooked with it's predecessor.
🍁 Misadventures & plot twists abound.
🍁 Magic system explained in more detail.
🍁 Introduction to more mythical creatures+blasphemous alliances 😗.
🍁 Great character development & arc.
🍁 Wholesome friendships 🥺.
🍁 Ugh that ending! It ended me for a bit 😭.

✩ Cons:

🍁 It could've been a duology 🤷🏻‍♀️.
🍁 Too much filler content in between to make it seem longer.
🍁 Unnecessary details & the circular way, like a jalebi, the story progressed at times was a bit infuriating.
🍁 Idk if it's a con, but Reid & Lou's banter in this one just plain irritated me bc Reid acted all holier than thou sanctimonious prick & even though showing miscommunication b/w couples is great, it was too exaggerated & just started grating on me after a while.

It was a good fast paced read, lagging in a few places. The story doesn't make much progress in terms of the timeline, but gives a more in depth view of the people in this world+ magic.

"Ask me no questions, mon amour, and I shall tell you no lies..."
Did I like this book? Yes, very much. Did I enjoy this book? Yes. Did I love this book? I hate to say it, but no.
"The wisest course of action isn't always the right one..."
In this sequel we see Lou, Reid and Co navigating the consequences from the end of Serpent & Dove whilst trying to anticipate an attack from La Dame Des Sorcieres.
What I really liked about this book was how we got to see more of the world and the magical creatures that inhabit it. There were lot of new and interesting characters introduced along the way. And that cliffhanger... Wow! I did predict it with some of the earlier foreshadowing but, my gods, it still hit hard!
I also experienced a first whilst reading this book as I took part in an Interactive Art Read-A-Long through A Touch of Magic Designs on IG. This included five mystery prints labelled with a corresponding chapter. It depicted the scene beautifully and helped to bring the characters to life. It also had me rushing to read on to reach the next print. This read-a-long is a big part of why this review is 4 stars instead of 3.
"She wore secrets like armour, and she shed them for no one... "
Now, I loved Serpent & Dove and I was abolsutely hooked on it. I feel Blood & Honey just fell short of that. It honestly felt like Lou and Reid were strangers - that original spark was missing. The story between those two felt repetitive in this book and not fresh like in S&D. It felt like this was a 'filler' book before getting to the Finale. I'm a sucker for romance and theirs just seemed to dwindle. I'm hoping to see a revival in book 3.

It is fair to say that the character development in this book was stellar. Serpent & Dove paved the way for an ongoing emotional investment in Lou and Reid that was really honed in on in the sequel. Blood & Honey had me rooting for them from the very beginning and throughout, even with all their struggles. Admittedly it was frustrating to read through the arguments and tension at times but it was real. No relationship with that amount of conflict is going to be easy and Shelby really illustrated that in her writing.

We also saw more from the other characters in the story which I appreciated. Seeing little mini romances and relationships develop between different characters in the world was both exciting and frustrating. Ansel in particularly grew on me a lot, he is so underestimated and I just wanted to see him flourish! Coco on the other hand actually started to get on my nerves in this book. She was one of my favourites going in but she made some pretty lousy choices which ultimately dimmed my overall perception of her character by the end.

World building in Blood & Honey was impeccable. The magic system got some well needed attention. I thoroughly enjoyed reading as it was fleshed out more and more. The writing is very immersive which really helps to teleport the readers mind to every location the characters venture to. This is particularly important for Blood & Honey as the characters travels play so heavily on the overarching plot line.

The plot! Heart wrenching, emotional and full of angst. The twists and turns in the plot, especially towards the end, were so unexpected. I audibly gasped at the ending. I was not ready! That is pretty much all I can say without spoiling the whole thing.

It is fair to say that Blood & Honey did suffer slight ‘Second Book Syndrome’ in that I was bored at certain points. Mainly during the meat in the middle chapters. I just wanted to skip to the part where they made it to where they were going! Admittedly though, listening to the audio book made even the more dry parts of the book sound thrilling. The voice acting was really well done and I was impressed with how much passion and enthusiasm the actors put into playing their parts in the story. Each voice played a vital role in me feeling like I was in the midst of an epic fantasy story and I loved that.

To conclude, Blood & Honey is a story about learning. We learn not only about imperfect relationships but about the people in them. We learn that Lou is reckless and out of control, Reid is rigid and believes everything has a place. What they both needed to learn in this book was how to balance each other out. How to make each other better people, instead of focusing on what makes them different.
