Week 41 Review: Dragon Blood

From Goodreads:
The battle against a vengeful goddess reaches a climactic point as Lily Yu must now face the ultimate challenge in a dangerous new realm—without her husband, Rule...

When a mission to rescue five children stolen by an Old One falls apart under the assault of a demon prince, Lily wakes up in a strange reality—and is immediately taken captive by the dragon spawn who rule there. Jumping worlds has fractured her party, and Cynna is her only companion. 

Although the clock is ticking, time works differently, and Lily has miraculously gained a week. That means seven days to free herself, find Rule and the others, rescue the children, and make it home alive. All before the dragon spawn holding her hostage trade her to the Old One. It would almost be doable if this weren't Lóng Jia—also known as Dragonhome: the birthplace of dragons.

My Review:
Oh, wow, this book was absolutely amazing! After the evil cliffhanger ending of Dragon Spawn, I was desperate for this book! And it totally delivered! It was just incredible-and almost all taking place before Dragon Spawn's big ending!

There was a lot going on in this book! We got to explore the culture of the people who've made their home in Dragonhome, those who've slipped into this realm and those who are descended from them. It was a mix of ancient Chinese and worship, basically, of the spawns. So fascinating to read about!

For the majority of this book, the characters are apart and unable to communicate. Which is different, and there were different dynamics between the characters, and new facets to their relationships began to develop, which was really interesting to read!

We learned a lot in this book, and so much happened-even on Earth the week before the kidnappings. So much of it came together in a fantastic ball of events! I mean, it happened earlier then I thought it would, but then, they weren't done yet, were they? They still had the battle they left in Dragon Spawn! Yeah. So freaking great!

That ending was evil, but not quite as bad, because there's so many questions, and possible places that the series can go from here, and I just want to read about that! This book was just fantastic!
