biggest problem is that the boy she loves is part of Myriad
and she is sworn to Troika. Will either one of them be
prepared to give up everything for the other and make a life

LIFEBLOOD is a young adult book part of the Everlife
series by Gena Showalter. Though I did not read book one
I was able to pick up book two LIFEBLOOD and dive right into
the series. Gena Showalter did a great job of letting you
know what happened in the last book without overdoing it.
When I started the book I did not think I was going to enjoy
it, Ten is big into numbers and thinks about everything
using numbers and describing what they mean. Plus she writes
and thinks up poems, two of my least favorite things:
numbers and poetry. Amazingly though, she did a really good
job of keeping me in the story and uses the numbers and
descriptions well. I may even have learned something. Gena
Showalter has created a fascinating world, with good
characters and you will enjoy following them. The outcome of
their lives will change the world as they know it.
"My Firstlife is over, but my Everlife is only now
With her last living breath, Tenley "Ten" Lockwood made her
choice and picked her realm in the Everlife. Now, as the war
between Troika and Myriad rages, she must face the consequences.
Because Ten possesses a rare supernatural ability to absorb
and share light, the Powers That Be have the highest
expectations for her futureâ€”and the enemy wants her
neutralized. Fighting to save her Secondlife, she must learn
about her realm from the ground up while launching her first
mission: convincing a select group of humans to join her
side before they die. No pressure, right?
But Ten's competition is Killian, the boy she can't
forgetâ€”the one who gave up everything for her happiness. He
has only one shot at redemption: beating Ten at a game she's
never even played. As their throw-downs heat up, so do their
undeniable feelings, and soon, Ten will have to make another
choice. Loveâ€¦or victory.
