Bad Bloods: November Rain (FREE)

AmazonBarnes & NobleiBooksKoboSmashwords, GoodreadsAudible

  • Murry Reviews and Interviews: Ms. Thompson’s writing is to the point and easy to read. It is a good lead in the series, leaving the reader wanting to know what happens next in Serena’s life.
  • The Book Slayer (Audiobook): This is such a great read for anyone who roots for the underdogs and likes a little bit of love in a book. I think it has a little bit of everything for everyone. So what are you waiting for? Go pick up a copy of this book today.
  • Chanda Reads (Audiobook): If you are looking for a clean YA book that has lots of action, a great story, strong and loyal characters, and is a quick read – I recommend picking up November Rain
  • Hall Ways Blog: (Audiobook): Speaking of reading with my ears — the audio book narrator, Jonathan Johns, has a delightful voice and pacing. He handled well the wide range of ages (from light hearted children to gruffer old men) and did an excellent job voicing the emotions of the characters.
  • Dab of Darkness (Audiobook): This made the book feel like a near future scifi tale and also like a war time history story at the same time.
  • Jess the Audiobookworm (Audiobook): What separates Bad Bloods from those super hyped books is Shannon A. Thompson’s magnificent character development and overall writing ability. That’s why I’m calling Bad Bloods a Hidden Gem. Getting to know Thompson’s characters was like slowly lowering into a hot bath. Intense, but at the same time oh-so-enjoyable.
  • Slytherin Book Lady: If you like dystopians, then I suggest you get to your nearest bookstore or library and check this book out. I can’t wait to read the next three books. I didn’t want to put the book down. And I definitely didn’t want it to end.
  • Midwestern Book Nerd: I highly suggest you read this series!
  • On My Kindle: I loved this book! It’s an unlikely combination of gritty and clean that is executed beautifully.
  • Truth About BooksBad Bloods is a solid work of dystopian YA that will delight any fan of the genre. It also includes an angle that is too often overlooked by other authors in the category.
  • Cheap Reads: “If you liked books such as ‘Hunger Games,’ ‘Divergent,’ or even James Patterson’s ‘Maximum Ride,’ I’d definitely say you should check out ‘Bad Bloods.’ It has all the things dystopian readers love about the genre, plus an extra kick. Head over to Amazon and check out ‘Bad Bloods’ for yourself.”
  • Betwixt the Pages: “I definitely recommend to lovers of dystopian novels, fast-paced and action-packed plots, and strongly defiant characters. I cannot WAIT to pick up book two!”
  • Infinite Lives, Infinite Stories: “I highly recommend giving this a shot. Time for part 2!”
  • Lena May Books: “A powerful work of art. In November Rain, Thompson invites us into a world of secrecy, murder and unlikely friendships that are bound to make your head spin with wonder.”
  • Teen Book Lit 101: “I was in love with this novel right from the first page. It’s such a page turner and definitely a unique concept. I haven’t read anything like it so far. I love how fast paced and intense it is.”

  • Macy Loves Stories: “November Rain is very relatable and at the same time very inspiring, breathtaking, and beautiful. It should be read by everyone because I believe everyone will learn at least one valuable lesson from it. I also thought of The Hunger Games and Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children while reading it, so if you loved those books, you should definitely check Bad Bloods out!”
  • A Reader’s Review: “A dark and insightful dystopian read! Thompson is an immensely talented writer. I was reminded of events from history such as the witch trails and the Holocaust, not to mention contemporary events surrounding the modern day diaspora of those from war torn countries which has resulted in the pressure of immigration on other nations, which  some are fearful of. A top read for readers of Young Adult fiction and/or for those who are seeking a thought provoking read.”

Bad Bloods: July Thunder (#3) 

AmazonBarnes & NobleiBooksKoboSmashwordsGoodreads

  • On My Kindle: An excellent plot coupled with the realistic dialogue of characters with varied, and interesting, abilities, made July Thunder easy to read and hard to put down. All in all, an intriguing and fresh young adult dystopian novel that is a must-have for die-hard dystopian fans!

  • The Book Forums: I LOVE this! I am a sucker for great characters, and July Thunder has no short of them. Bad Bloods: July Thunder is a unique story with a strong focus on the brilliant characters rather than a world changing plot.

Wonderful writing, captivating characters and a story that will reel you in until the last page, these Bad Bloods may have a tendency of breaking the rules, but their stories are way too good not to read!
  • Daydreaming Books: The plot was refreshing and easy to read. We get to see so many new characters and each one possessed a unique ability.
  • Pointe Taken: I’m very excited to see where the series goes!

  • Black Words, White Pages: OMG, What can I say about this book…..Just , just, just…….absolutely AWESOME!! Thompson spared us no secrets in this book. The story-line was magical.
  • The Book Forums: As someone who lives in southern Louisiana, hurricanes and potential flooding has been a part of my life since I was born. It is a worrying thought for all of your possessions to be lost to an impending storm which one can do nothing about.
